Marathon Taper Time!
Recap of Last Week
I quickly recovered from the Valentine's Day trail half marathon. I recover more quickly after racing on dirt trails, like the one above, than I do after running a road race. (Unless, I trip on a root and fall!) Two days later, on Monday, I was running again.
M: 8 mile run, strength train
T: 5 mile run, strength train
T: 8 mile run (8 x 800m or 1/2 mi with 400m rests)
F: 9 mile run, strength train
S: 7 mile run
This week I'll be running less than usual and eating more carbohydrates than usual because on February 28 I'm running in The Woodlands Marathon! I've run the half marathon a couple of times, it's close to home and it looks like the weather will be fairly nice for running, too!
