Week 13 of Marathon Training

Sunday, November 11, 2012

Challenging but good week!

Had a couple easy runs, an interval run and a 16 mile progressive run. Progressive meant that I was to start at a super easy pace and finish just under race pace. I was super tired but did it!

On Friday and Saturday, I worked the Disney Wine & Dine Expo at the Rock n Roll Marathon Series booth promoting St. Pete Rock n Roll in Feb. It was 20 hours on my feet over the two days and by the end of the day Saturday, I felt so arthritic. I wondered if I would be able to do my run so I was happy to finish it, though I was really tired. I took my first ice bath after a year today. I was actually looking forward to it!

My 20 miler is next Sunday! Race is about a month away! I plan to be ready!

    Ice Bath? Are you insane LOL? Knowing you there is a very good reason why you'd do this, dying to know!

Good luck with the race and have a good week Tia emoticon

    Wow, I'm not up on this ice bath, what's it for? Tired, aching muscles? I've been looking into the virtual 5K walk on SP. I thought I saw a 1 mile walk for beginners. This is probably so below the level you are at but I hope to one day "jog" again. I'm so heavy on my knees and ankles right now, I want to start with a walk. Anyway, enough about me, I read your blogs about preparing for the marathons, I know you will do a great job! emoticon emoticon
