Week Three – Marathon Training Recap

Leave a comment

It was a fun week of running. Tuesday run with the Gritty City peeps was a hoot. We’re slowly building momentum to run 2 miles of Brown Mt. in two weeks. Ran a successful tempo along Griffith where I managed to hit my times within 10 seconds and felt great after. No significant or lingering pain. The Mt. Wilson run beat me up pretty good. It wasn’t so much the climbing, but the heat. Regular soreness related to climbing 5,000ft. was felt the next day. After 2 days I’m back to norm, except for tightness in the gluteus area:-)

Started juicing again. Carrots, beets, and apples. Why those fruits and veggies? Because they’re on sale! Yams and Okinawan potatoes will continue to be consumed regularly. If you have recipes, share them – get them while they’re cheap! (I shop at Super King on Lincoln. Great prices on produce!) Also, incorporated a core regimen post recovery runs. Should help with posture up those hills.
