Marathon Week 14

Only four weeks to go!

Week 14
Monday: rest
Tuesday: 8.33
Wednesday: 8.01
Thursday: 5.02
Friday: rest
Saturday: rest
Sunday: 13.1

Total miles: 34.46

This week went just as planned. Week 13’s reduced mileage meant my legs were rested and ready for 8 miles on Tuesday instead of my usual 5 miles. My goal was to 1) add a few extra miles to the cutback week and 2) keep the extra miles at the start of the week, so I was ready to race on Sunday. If the half marathon had been my primary goal race this fall, I would have cut back my mileage even more.

I was really grateful for the two rest days in a row leading up to the race. I wish that I was able to take an extra day off this week since my legs are definitely tired/sore from the half marathon. The race has left me with a whole slew of emotions and I am still kind of processing it. I’ll try to get a race recap up later this week!

  1. Looking forward to your recap!

    Running a half marathon during marathon training was definitely weird for me. I had trained specifically for my first two half marathons and this one was just sort of an afterthought. I couldn't really taper for it the way I would have liked. I ended up just barely getting a PR, but I know I could have done a lot better if I had really trained for this race and taken the time to prepare for the course, etc. Oh well. I will be training for my next races so I know I'm gonna nail them!
