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.
I can’t believe it’s the first “official” week of training. Whoa! This week was a weird one. I was so tired from our adventures in Colorado and spent a lot of effort on strength training. I wanted to run more, but it just didn’t happen. My long run on Saturday got cut super short due to heat and on Sunday I slept in with the Mr.
I would normally be really hard on myself, but I still managed to get some solid work in even if I didn’t get all the miles in.
