Now that I’ve recovered from Marathon Sunday, climbed Mt. Washington (Report Part 1, Report Part 2), and ran my first ever Rock N Roll Half Marathon, it’s time to once again crack down and get serious.
Serious about what?
MARATHON #2!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s what. I know I’ve been talking about it a bit here and there, but with only 37 days to go, it’s going to consume most of what you hear from me! So brace yourselves!
On Sunday, while I sat on my couch avoiding rain for the rest of the day (I was seriously waterlogged after that race!), I prepared my training schedule for the next 6 weeks. If all goes well my peak week will be 44 miles, and August will be my BIGGEST MONTH EVER!
So, Coachy reviewed my training schedule, tweaked a couple of things (I had an overly ambitious pre-taper week), and gave it his seal of approval! I’m ready!
Last night started with P90X Cardio-X. I may be completely insane, but that was fun. I was supposed to run recovery from RnR Half, but it was pouring rain and I wasn’t motivated enough to drive to the gym. I was hardly motivated to work out – does anyone else find crappy weather and poor motivation to work out often go hand in hand? I knew I couldn’t blow off my workout, not this close to Marathon #2.
So, back to Cardio-X. 45 minutes of heart pounding, low impact cardio moves. It’s a great combo, so you don’t get bored!
- Yoga warm up
- Stretching/cool down
