NYC Marathon Training Week 13

October 21, 2016

Disclaimer: I received a free 6 week coaching session with Ekiden to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!"

 

After feeling a bit under the weather for the latter part of Week 12, I started Week 13 feeling ready to run. This week also included the Bellin's Women's Half Marathon. The best part of including a race during training is that you have great company, plenty of water and nutrients along the course, and a medal.

 

This was my Ekiden plan for Week 13

 

Tuesday 

I ran a 4 mile reunion run with my Black Girls Run! group. We haven't run in a while and it was great to catch up and encourage those who were getting ready to run the Chicago Marathon on Saturday. Easy 2:1 intervals to get the miles in. 

 

Wednesday

Since I do not run on Wednesday, I skipped this workout and moved it to Thursday.

 

Thursday

I ran the interval workout that was designed by Coach Jenny. I also lifted weights and rode the stationary bike for cross training. I am really enjoying the progression runs. I didn't realize how much I energy I spend in the beginning of the runs. The warm ups and the eventually progressions to race pace really helps with conserving energy.
