Week of Training Nov. 4-11, Richmond Half Marathon Week

Marathon Training – Nov. 4 -Nov. 11 – This post includes my week of Running, Lifting! 🙂and other stuff I’ll add in – like recipes, podcasts.  

  • I’m now 4 weeks from the California International Marathon (as of Nov. 4).  In addition, I also have a half marathon in 1 week (this Saturday – Nov. 11) & a 10K in 3 weeks (on Thanksgiving) … 🙂
  • 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
