Have been CARAZY…. sososo much work! It is all very worth it though because I will have all my work done before my friend Whitt comes to visit this weekend!!!
So as I stated after my 20 miler- I am officially on my taper and in fact only have one more weekend before the marathon!! OMG FAREAKING OUT….. I cannot believe it is almost here!!!!
So lets do a recap of last week’s training/the joy of taper
First off my legs HURT last week… bad… 20 miles was not good for them… well it was but they definitely felt it. I had pretty bad shin splints until about Thursday… ouch… Side note: I am a baby… I do not like pain… I will run through it… I did run through it.. but I am NOT a fan of my legs feeling like they did. So I rested, iced, foam rolled, used my compression sleeves, and did not actually run until this Saturday. Instead I decided to elliptical and spin. I know I probably should have run but I am terrified of stress fractures… and for a few days it physically hurt to walk sooooo running did not seem like the best idea.
However Tuesday I did a 45 minute spin, Wednesday 1.5 hours on the elliptical, 1 hour on the elliptical on Thursday, rest day Friday, and I ran 12 miles on Saturday! Yesterday for cross training I did a 40 minute spin workout!
Today is technically a rest day however I may do yoga because I really want to stretch it out, and I haven’t done yoga in awhile!
On the food front I have been a boring bee… I made chili last week… so last week basically I ate chili for most meals…. win… I would add a salad or maybe a grilled cheese depending on what I felt I needed. But this week… shaking it up baby shaking it up!
