Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon Training Week 13: Playing It Safe

Been extremely cautious with my training lately. Taking rest days at least twice a week now. Not taking any chances with injuries and letting my body rest and recover so that I can run a solid marathon this year. It’s not easy and I am absolutely dying to run 50 mile weeks again. I even skipped doing a long run this week so that I could get some extra rest.

I am still skipping speedwork and hills but am starting to push the paces of my runs a little. Hopefully, I will add those back in soon! Training last week and this week were a little different since I was in Boston to watch this guy run but I was able to squeeze in a couple runs while in Boston.

Sunday: 7 miles
Monday: Rest
Tuesday: 5 Miles
Wednesday: 6 miles
Thursday: 7 amazing miles in the morning, 4 ok miles after work
Friday: 3 miles and 30 mins on the elliptical
Saturday: Rest-Traveled to Boston

Total Mileage: 32 miles

Oh and I also met this guy while in Boston

Hi Meb!

absolutely amazing to meet him. He was super nice and personable too. Just want to squeeze him and then run with him.

Next race on tap is the Glass City Half Marathon, this weekend! This is a flat course so I am hoping for a decent time. Wish me luck!

1 month til I toe the line for the Cleveland Marathon!!!
