Training Week 9: That’s Right No Stopping This Girl!

So I just finished the Towpath Marathon yesterday and guess what? Detroit Marathon is this Sunday. I went back and forth a lot on if I should run 2 marathons so close together and talked myself out of it a couple times, but after yesterdays marathon I know I am ready…and excited (maybe a little nervous too). But here is last weeks training:

Monday:  Rest…nope played muddy football :). Yep 2 weeks in a row that I have played muddy football
Tuesday: 5 miles
Wednesday: 4
Thursday: Rest. Was supposed to do an easy 3 in the morning but over slept and instead of stressing out about it I just gave my legs some extra rest (it is rare that I do this)
Friday: Rest
Saturday: Rest
Sunday: 26.33-Towpath Marathon!

Total Mileage: 35.33

Since I have another marathon coming up so soon, I am trying to give my legs as much rest as possible. My training plan even says to take off the week and eat swedish fish. For real, it says that, I swear. Although I am substituting in Spooky Nerds for Swedish Fish. Shocking, I know.

There is a new favorite candy in town 🙂

  1. You are such a machine – two marathons on back to back weekends, I love it. A fit friend of mine (we used to go to the same kickboxing class and how go to the same yoga studio) is also running Detroit – it will be her first full. Can’t wait to hear both of your takes on the race!

  2. Ugh…hope I can get to where you are someday. Ran my first 26.2 this Sunday and my quads are SORE! Going down stairs is killer!!! But I’m already thinking of running another one….NEXT YEAR! Not next weekend! LOL!!!
