The Workouts 1/24 – 1/30

Well, it was an interesting week.  I did finally manage to start running again but with the weather and feeling generally blah from being sick, it wasn’t a shining example of pre-marathon training.  So, OK.  It is what it is and hopefully the next week will be better.

1/24 – rest (well, why not?).

1/25 – total body weights – felt kinda weak.

1/26 – 5 mile run – 1.5 on asphalt, 3.5 on dirt.  Temp in the lower 40’s, wind <10 mph.  Not too bad after some pre running jitters.  Remember to run with tissues…

1/27 – 5 mile run – 1.5 on asphalt, 3.5 on dirt. Temp in high 30’s, wind approx. 10 mph.  A little bit better than previous run.

1/28 – 5 mile run – 1.5 on asphalt, 3.5 on dirt.  Temp in low 40’s, wind approx. 10 mph.  This one felt pretty good.

1/29 – cross training – helping a friend move furniture all day.  Tired after.

1/30 – total body weights and core toning.  Still not as strong as before marathon.

And though I hope to get more running this week, Monday and Tuesday are supposed to have very cold winter weather.  I may do my weight training in the first few days and try to run well later in the week.

    Treat your body kindly. It has to rebuild. Well, you know all that stuff. It sounds to me like you are getting back in your pre-marathon groove. Question; is there a kind of emotional let down after a marathon? You know, big build up, excitement, anxiety, adrenaline…then it’s over. Could it be that some of your perceived weakness is coming from that space as well as from your recent illness?
