You did see my NUUN HTC application, right??
Okay, back to the point of this post. The weekend and Oak Barrel 1/2 Marathon rocked. The race was my initial choice for Jess’s Jelly Bean Race. Sorry peeps, no bunny ears here. My real race recap will be coming soon, but just know it was lots of fun and I finished in 1:58:30. I also figured since I ran a 6.2 mile run on Thursday that I should enter the 10K. 55 minutes for that. But only one pic…
|I should not be allowed to take pictures of myself…
You may remember that I had planned on running 20 miles on Saturday. I, apparently, am the queen of screwed up training plans. I have decided I do much better when I have a plan given to me. I don’t like attempting to make it up on my own.
Point to the above rant is that, well, I screwed it up again. When we got to our cabin Friday night I realized there was absolutely no way I was going to be able to run in the dark. We were on back roads with no sidewalks (we were in the TN country people, for real). So I tweeted to see if I would be okay with just a 2 week taper. All of my marathon trainings have had a 3 week taper so I was a bit nervous to change it up. I had several people reassure me that I would be fine, so once again, plan changed.
I’m okay with this. I ran Oak Barrel as a training run and I know I can handle the 20 miler this weekend. I was able to really enjoy the race and will feel better running the 20 miles without breaks (instead of running 6-7 before, driving to race, and then running again).
So that leads me to the PFTW:
Obviously last weeks wasn’t perfect but hopefully this one will be!
Monday: cross train and weights (already completed 35 minutes on elliptical & 300s in weights)
Tuesday: 6-8 with Sara
Wednesday: cross train and upper body weights
Thursday: 6-8 miles
Saturday: 20 miles
Sunday: 2-3 recovery or rest
Did you do the Jelly Bean?
