Week Seven – Marathon Training Recap

Leave a comment

A hot and humid week of running. Felt strong all week. I feel my aerobic level has increased. 7:50 is easy conversation pace now. Just a couple of instances where I’ve had discomfort running and both times were after hard workouts, so pretty normal stuff. The recovery runs and stretching helped with loosening the muscles. Felt great after.

I need to do a better job of hydrating while on the run. I do a good job of getting fluids in prior to runs, but a bad job during and post runs. Perhaps the water bottle I won from ARC will help me do a better job.

Nutritionally a sub-par week. Been using Herbalife endurance products for snacks and post-workout nutrition. I add the meal replacement and post-workout formulas into my fruit smoothies. On their own the powders are too sweet and icky tasting. I also used the electrolyte drink once. It tasted OK. Only juiced twice this week.

Looking forward to more core exercises this coming week. I feel that when I run tall I’m more comfortable and have a quicker turnover. I know to keep this up I need to have a stronger core.
