Week Nine – Marathon Training Recap

Leave a comment

Fantastic week of running. Challenging track workout on Tuesday whose effects were still felt a couple of days later. The recovery runs helped a lot. Ran 20 miles solo in Santa Monica that was easier than I expected. I run better when I’m around other runners, which that area (San Vicente) had loads of. I’ve never been witness to such a concentration of Lululemon apparel. Gotta love the Westside!

Did a better job of doing core exercises. All the movements were weighted with plates and a medicine ball.

Still sub-par with nutrition. Did manage to drink some kind of juice/smoothie combo daily, but didn’t get to cook as much. Two servings of whole fruits/veggies daily and 2 glasses of water upon waking up was accomplished. Hopefully I can keep it up.
