This week felt much more like a taper week than last week. On Monday my legs felt fresh and ready to run, but other easy runs over the week felt kind of sluggish. I’ve also been really tired, so running less has been a good thing.
Philadelphia Marathon Training Week of 11/9-11/15:
Monday: 7.16 miles with 5 @ MGP (ended up being faster) (average pace 7:54) PM: 75 minutes hot yoga
Tuesday: 6.01 miles easy (9:13 pace), core work
Wednesday: 4.2 miles easy (8:58 pace)
Thursday: 3.11 miles easy (8:58 pace), core work
Friday: Rest …I started stalking the weather forecast…
Saturday: 8.2 miles (average pace 8:04) This was much faster than it should have been, but it was so cold out and I just wanted to run fast to warm up! I had a downhill on mile 3 and ran it in like 7:43, and from there I just kind of held a faster pace than usual. I definitely felt strong during this run but I know I really should’t be pushing the pace too much this close to the race.
Total: 28.68 miles
It’s getting really close now!
