The One With Land Of Oz Training {Week 4}



So the first three weeks of marathon training have been a bit of a bust thanks to the holiday and then being sick for nearly 10 days, but hopefully now all of that stuff is behind me and I can now focus wholeheartedly on hitting that 5 hour marathon time I have set for Kansas in April. And I can also focus on getting Rachel to the finish line of her first half marathon! 

Here is a look at how sad and pitiful the past 2 weeks of workouts have looked like:

Week 2 (Dec 31-Jan 6)

3 miles + yoga

travel
Houston 5K

Houston Half Marathon

done
24+ miles


17+ miles

After yesterday’s half my right hip flexor was pretty sore last night; however my shins and ankles were pretty sore too and I think it is probably due to the fact that I hadn’t done anything for 10+ days, but all of that being said I will be taking a couple of days off from running and will get back to workouts as usual tomorrow. I plan to run Wednesday and then focus on helping my sister get in her half marathon training.

Here’s what this week will hopefully look like for workouts:

Week 4 (Jan 14-20)
Off

BodyPump

4.5 miles

3 miles + heated yoga

yoga

 9 miles (with Rach)


yoga

16 + miles



What are your weekly workout goals this week?

Be on the lookout later this week for 2 race recaps from Houston!

Looking forward to your recaps! I've been sore too... I really think part of it is that Houston's entire course is concrete, except for maybe one mile around Rice. Ouch!!

I love your weekly reports - especially since you show what you had planned as well as what you actually did!

Hopefully this week will be much better for you since you're feeling better now!
