Cleveland Marathon Training Week 10: It’s November Again. Just Kidding

I’ve been a little obsessive with the weather this marathon training season. Throughout January and February, I expect cold, wind and snow. By March, I expect for it to be a little less of cold/snow and more sun. However, today, it’s snowing. It’s also looking like it’s going to be 20+ MPH winds for speed work tonight, with a temperature that “feels like 18”. In Cleveland, March is the new November.

Monday: Rest Day
Tuesday: Speedwork. 1 mile WU, 6-800s at 3:10, 3:15, 3:17, 3:18, 3:19, 3:21, 1 mile CD
Wednesday: 45 min spin, 15 min abs and arms.
Thursday: 3 Miles in the morning, 3 Miles after work.
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: St. Malachi Race. 1.5 mile warm up, 5 mile run, 6.5 mile cooldown.=13 Total

Sunday: 50 mins spinning, 25 mins conditioning (sit ups, push ups, jumps, squats etc)

Total Mileage: 25 miles

This was my “scale back week” and I feel like I did a good job. My legs feel rested even though I did speed work on Tuesday and raced on Saturday. I’m looking forward to racing again this weekend and getting in another 20 miler!

Do you have a scale back week or do you just wait til it’s time to taper?

P.S. Did you see Alana Hadley is running the Cleveland Marathon as her debut Marathon at 16 years old. Baller! She ran a half marathon at 15 in 1:16:41.

  1. I have a cut back week… but I don’t think I usually cut back as much as I should.

    congrats on a great week of training!

    also, i’m so envious that you can finish up your long runs after a race. i end up bailing 93% of the time!
