Saturday. Training Week 24 of 25. This week has been a challenge. It should’ve been planned it as a recovery week but I wanted to keep the momentum going. Mid-week I decided to take the week off weights so I could still run the plan, and then updated the weekend running schedule with recovery distance miles.
My hip adductors have been sore and last week I thought I needed to make them stronger; I overdid it and made it worse. I’ll start weight training again next week now that the soreness is gone.
But otherwise, I did okay running this week. It was all on a treadmill, again. I incorporated the stairs this week and added a few more core exercises. Nutrition wasn’t great this week but I feel like I can get back on track this weekend.
I booked my flight and registered for the Leadville Marathon in June. June is going to be busy. The week before the marathon I’ll be in Maryland cheering on Mark at Eagleman and it will be good to recover and travel south for a bit in June.
Today is a 3-4 mile hike followed by a 10 mile run which I will try to run on trails. Later this afternoon I have a massage scheduled. Recovery TV this week is Chicago PD Season 4.
Despite everything (muscle pain, poor eating, doubt, anxiety, fear) I’m in it; I’m in this training mode for Leadville 100%.
