Week 1 – Marathon Training Recap

Leave a comment

Only ran four days instead of five. Instead of running with everyone else at Griffith Park I was at a cross-country coaching clinic.

Legs feel strong and no knee pain. Upper body and lower back soreness lasted for a couple of days after a Wednesday yoga session at YAS in Silverlake. Starting this upcoming week I’m going to incorporate core exercises and some upper body stretching and strength work.

This is also the first week wearing the New Balance 870’s I got from A Runner’s Circle on Los Feliz Blvd. Shoes feel good on the roads, but a bit unstable on the trails because of the high heel profile and stiffness of the forefoot. Good trainer that seems like it can take on lots of road miles.
