I normally would not be running a full marathon this close to Boston but my hubby is playing in a softball tournament down there this weekend and the marathon runs right past where we are staying .. so I decided to sign up and get my miles in!
I really did not taper much for this race and am curious to play around with my strategy a little during the run. I really want to focus on pacing and controlling my speed early on in the marathon.
So this week I did:
Monday: 8.25 miles in 62 minutes and then decided to do BodyPump with Nicole!! My muscles are going to hate me! I am really trying hard to keep up with the lifting! I also had a much need Chiropractor appointment today and love that feeling of proper alignment!
Tuesday: After all of that Monday and working all night today's workout was very tough! 7.3 in 55 minutes and felt like I ran 50 miles! OUCH.
Wednesday: I took the day off from running and did 70 minutes on the Stair Monster!
I have a huge love/hate relationship with this bad boy! I get an amazing workout and feel great when done but my goodness while I am doing it I always question my fitness level! I did the "mystery" option and it was filled with speed and hills galore!
Ok so since we will have an even longer drive to Myrtle Beach I did make Danny and I some homemade PB protein bars:
|I added raisins and chocolate chips to one side|
Fingers crossed and prayers said we make it there!
Anyone else running Myrtle Beach??
