Well, last week was the big week…the Marine Corps Marathon.
Here’s the day-by-day breakdown of my week leading up to yesterday’s race…
Monday: Physical Therapy. 45-minute pool run with about 35 minutes at tempo effort.
Tuesday: 30-minute pool run with 25 at tempo effort. Core workout.
Wednesday: Physical Therapy.
Thursday: Rest. I also visited the Expo Thursday night to get my packet.
Friday: Last physical therapy appointment – very light massage and dynamic stretching.
Saturday: One mile shake out run followed by a dynamic stretch routine. I felt awesome and was feeling so positive about Sunday.
Sunday: The wheels fell off a bit and everything (but my calves which I spent the last two weeks working on in PT) felt awful. I missed my time goal by a whole heck of a lot, but was really proud I was able to pull myself together and keep going through the pain to cross the line in 4:12:41. Full recap and pictures coming soon.
