Weekly Training Summary: April 20 to 26, 2015


It’s taper time! Lately, my exercising has almost been entirely limited to running even though I know that cross-training and strength training is so important! This week my goal was to hit the gym in the mornings for some non-running exercise.

Monday: 

  • Morning gym workout – 20 minutes of stationary biking using the “mountain” preset and finished off with a 45 second plank and some stretching. 

Tuesday:

Wednesday: 

  • Slopitch game

Thursday: 

  • Evening run – 14 km on trails.

Friday: 

Saturday: 

  • Morning gym workout – 30 minutes of stationary biking using the rolling hills preset. 

Sunday: 

  • Morning long run – 22.5 km on trails.

Well, I’m impressed that I actually made it to the gym! Hopefully I can turn this into a habit. It’s a great way to start a day and I already feel stronger!

Tapering has been tough. I learned what “FOMO” is recently and I have a bad case of it when it comes to trail running. I made the difficult decision to only partake in one of the weekend trail runs my friends were planning so that my body can rest up for my marathon next weekend!
