Week of Training: Oct. 14-21

Marathon Training – October 14-21 – This post includes my week of Running, Lifting! 🙂and other stuff I’ll add in – like recipes, podcasts.  I’m going to be updating this daily this week – so adding to it each day. (I just don’t have enough time to post my daily running, but want to log it — so I’ll update here and also use insta-story)

  • I’m now 7 weeks from the California International Marathon (as of Oct 15).  In addition, I also have a half marathon in 4 weeks ! 🙂
  • My goals are honestly  just to run my best in each race.  I am going to train to hopefully do a 1:30 half, and a 3:15 full (or better of course!).
  • For weight lifting: I’m using my CARVE workout plans
    • I use CARVE 1-2-3 lifts each week on 3 different days, then do 2-3 days of Insanity as another form of cross training (plyometrics/core) .
  •  I working with my running coach Susan – she is also doing the same marathon!  You can read more about my training plan from her in my Week 1 post here
