Running Update - Week of October 5th

Well I just finished the marathon! I am going to do a full post on the marathon in the next few days, but wanted to get this post up about my last week of training!  I have loved all of the feedback on what I should do post marathon - I still haven't completely decided and need to do some research on upcoming races and possible workout classes I can take.  Stay tuned this week!

Sunday - I did some light upper body weights, some abs, and walked on the treadmill for about 45 minutes. I wasn't sore at all after the 8 miles on Saturday which was great.

Monday - I'm taking tapering very seriously. I slept in and didn't work out after work either.  My workout consisted of my walk to work and home - that was it!

Tuesday - 3 miles on the treadmill after work.  They were harding than they should have been for only being 3 miles.  I tried to do a few pick ups during the run, but my legs just felt heavy.  Trust the process :)

Wednesday - Busy busy day so no work out.  I felt very sluggest and regretted not working out in the morning. 

Thursday - 3 morning miles on the treadmill.  I tried to pick up the pace, but its just so hard for me. I did 20 second pick ups with a 40 second rest for the last 15 minutes of the workout.  I have such a love hate relationship with working out in the morning.  I love how it wakes me up and gets me energized for the day.  I hate how I am not quite awake yet so I feel like I don't get as good of a work out.

Friday - Rest day.  I decided no more running until the marathon!  I'm taking this tapering very seriously :)

Saturday - Rest day.  Fresh legs for the marathon.

Total miles this week: 6

This may be the last running update for a while and may have to be renamed to workout update!

Hope you're having a great weekend!
