Week Five – Marathon Training Recap

Leave a comment

Good running week. I can feel a good progression of speed with each tempo run. I’ve always liked hill running and I made it a point to run hilly courses this week. Best run of the week was the Sunday recovery run. It feels so good to have good music and a peaceful route to run on. Perfect end to the week. I’m looking forward to the recovery week to give my left shin and knee some t.l.c.

I also incorporated some upper body strength exercises this past week. Started slowly by doing declining repetitions of pull-ups (24), 3 sets of push-ups, and horizontal pull-ups. Arms were a little sore the next day, but that was expected.

The diet was ok. Added parsley to my carrot and apple juice blends. Should have consumed more protein and drank more post run (water, that is). I’d say about 80% of food consumed was homemade. Yay!
