The beginning of this training week was rough because I didn’t get over the stomach flu until Monday night. But even Tuesday and Wednesday I just didn’t have any energy to really work out. I finally started to feel like myself again on Thursday.
Monday: Still sick from the norovirus
Tuesday: Easy 4 miler in the AM. 1/2 mile swim in the PM
Wednesday: Speedwork 1 mile WU, 2×1 mile, 3×800, 1×400, 1 mile CD
Thursday: 5 mile run in the AM, 1/2 mile swim in the PM.
Friday: Abs and arms in the AM
Saturday: 12 mile long run with a 5K in the middle followed by a 1/2 mile swim
Sunday: easy 6 miles
Total Mileage: 32.5 miles
I won’t be doing much of a taper the next couple weeks but I’ll keep the mileage similar to what I have now. 25-35 miles a week should be plenty and I’ll probably keep my swims to 1/2 mile workouts so that I don’t over do it.
Absolutley excited to run the Rite Aid Cleveland Half Marathon in less than 2 weeks! If you haven’t done so already, stop by Second Sole in Rocky River to pick up some Carb Boom! It’s the gel that will be used on the course this year. You should always try the gel before race day (nothing new on race day)!
