Marathon week has come and gone! I am a little late getting this recap up, but I wanted to get this last week posted to finish this marathon training cycle. Race week was pretty uneventful and I felt flat and lazy. I couldn’t wait for the week to be over so I could get out there and race!
Monday: Rest day
Tuesday: Evening 4 mile run, trying to keep things light and easy
Wednesday: Another evening run after Cannon went to sleep for the night
Thursday: Quick 2 miles before work, felt heavy and slow, taper is the worst!
Friday: Travel Day! My mom and I headed to the salon for race day nails in the morning (she ran Boston!) then we packed up the car and headed west towards Fruita. Cannon is a champ in the car but we do have to make a lot more stops. I unfortunately was too distracted by a cute baby and did a terrible job hydrating. regardless we made it to town with plenty of time to check into our hotel, go to packet pick-up and grab dinner.
Saturday: Race day!!!! The course was challenging and so so so beautiful. More details in a race report soon. After the race we jumped into the car and headed home.
Sunday: Full rest day! My legs have definitely felt worse after previous marathons but driving for five hours after running didn’t help the situation. I enjoyed being lazy and eating lots of candy.
Now to start building back up and getting serious about Leadville training. Sunday long runs will soon be Saturday AND Sunday long runs…
Running: 36.8 miles
