Week 16 Training Recap

Marathon Monday followed by taper. The marathon was an overdistance training run for me in preparation for the Vermont City Marathon. At this point, I feel really good. Interesting considering after all past marathons I took a MONTH off. And sometimes, that extended into another month filled with excuses. But then, I didn't have 6 weeks til VCM either. No pressure!

So this is how it looked:
Monday - RUN 26.2 from Hopkington to Boston.
Done. You can read all about it here.
Rolling 7-day Total: 38.41 miles

Tuesday - REST
And boy, did I rest. I had no choice. WORK IS KILLING ME! GAH!
Rolling 7-day Total: 35.90 miles

Wednesday - REST
I had to do something. For the first time in my life, I ran. Okay. I walked. Whatever! I went for a .8 mile walk. And I didn't die. Imagine that.
Rolling 7-day Total: 32.70 miles

Thursday - RUN 15 minutes
I had to rest. Ugh. Drove to the NH office for a meeting. Actually, A LOT of meetings. But who's counting?
Rolling 7-day Total: 32.70 miles

Friday - REST
1.75 miles very easy on the treadmill. Legs felt okay.
Rolling 7-day Total: 32.41 miles

Saturday - RUN 2 miles
2.14 miles. I tried out the new Karhus. I am using my superfeet insoles. I think I need the arch support but I don't need a motion control shoe.
Rolling 7-day Total: 32.49 miles

Sunday - RUN 4 miles
Long run. 6.08 miles. Legs were sluggish. My lungs weren't even working. Someone tell me how to get my legs to catch up with my lungs. Please.
Rolling 7-day Total: 38.57 miles

Weekly Total: 38.74 miles
Next week is Week 2 of Post Marathon Recovery. I will be slowly coming back to my running. This is what is planned so far:
Monday - REST
Tuesday - Bike 30 (I might actually do this)
Wednesday - REST
Thursday - Bike 30
Friday - REST
Saturday - 4 miles
Sunday - 6 miles
