Welcome! Every week I recap my training from the week before mainly to help keep me accountable, but also because I like to share. I love to see how others are training, so my hope is that someone might like seeing this as well.
While I am running the Chicago Marathon and the NYC Marathon my training is specifically focused on Chicago because it is my goal race. I am also running other races in other places leading up to the marathon too. Read about my full race calendar here.
Here’s my training plan, but the process is constantly evolving.
There wasn’t much that happened this week. My body felt pretty wore out from the Vancouver USA Half Marathon so I took a lot of rest days. It’s always difficult for me to judge when I need to take a break or when I need to just suck it up an push harder.
I’m glad I listened to my body this week and rested.
REST – travel back from Oregon (vacation recap is coming soon!)
1 hour on the spin bike
4 easy miles with hill repeats
8 miles with hill repeats thrown in + 40 minutes on the spin bike
Five ish hours of yard work…ugh!
Total Miles This Week: 12
Total Miles This Cycle: 70.2
How is your training coming along?
