NYC Marathon Training Week 12

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!"

Week 12 was my second week of using Ekiden coaching for training. It also the week that I got sick and could not complete all my runs. Below was my schedule for the week.

Tuesday was an easy 3 mile run donut run with Highland Runners in the rain. This probably was the start of the journey to ickyness. The donuts were good though. I was my first time having a bacon donut.

Wednesday was yoga.

Thursday was the first time I ran in temperatures less than 90 degrees in 3 months. I ran the 3 miles according the plan. It was the first time in a long time that I ran a few sub 11 miles. This summer has been a killer.

Saturday was a easy 5 mile run in nice cool weather. While the run was great I was feeling under the weather. In hopes of getting well for the long run on Sunday I took medicine all day and slept for about 10 hours.

On Sunday I was suppose to run an 18 mile progression run, but I was in no shape to do so. I was sweating profusely before I even started running. I decided to do a 3 mile progression run to get an idea of how it worked. I really like it and I plan to use it for future training. On to another week of training.
