Week of Training: October 22-29

Marathon Training – October 22-29 – This post includes my week of Running, Lifting! 🙂and other stuff I’ll add in – like recipes, podcasts.  

  • I’m now 6 weeks from the California International Marathon (as of Oct 22).  In addition, I also have a half marathon in 3 weeks & a 10K in 5 weeks (on Thanksgiving) … I may also do another 10K the week after my marathon, but will decide once I get back from the marathon 🙂
  • My goals are honestly  just to run my best in each race.  I am going to train to hopefully do a sub-40min 10K, a 1:30 half, and a 3:15 full (or better of course!).
  • I try to include some sort of cross training 5-6days a week – either lifting weights or an insanity (plyo/core/HIIT) Workout
  •  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
