Last week I ran California International Marathon, and I had a blast! You can read all about it here!I don’t have a whole lot to write about as far as training recap. 1 week post marathon, so the mileage was low and the pace was easy. I was pretty beat up after this race. Totally makes sense looking at how much my mileage completely crashed the weeks leading up to the race.
Here’s a quick snap shot of my recovery week
Monday- Scheduled rest day
Travel day, no training. The plane ride back was pretty miserable, I could tell by the moans and groans that I was not alone. The time change from San Francisco to Kansas City seemed to make things worse. I was super glad to return home to my little princess and puppies.
Tuesday-Scheduled rest day
Back to work, no training. Focused on getting back into my work routine and took another rest day. No rush for me.
Wednesday- 3.28 miles @ 7:44 pace
First run back. Grabbed some miles with my high school track girls. I actually felt pretty awesome, until we hit this giant down hill on the way back to school Other than that, it was an easy 3 miler.
Thursday- 3.01 miles @8:01 pace
I decided a treadmill run was a better option for recovery. The softer ground and lack of elevation made the run feel pretty normal.
Friday- Scheduled Rest Day
Stayed late working on the classroom and really in no rush to get a small run in.
Saturday- 6 miles at 8:15 pace
Felt pretty easy, some leg tightness crept in at the end on the down hills again.
Sunday- 3.45 miles at 9:03 pace
Combo run/walk. Honestly I joined a crew at the gym mostly to keep the routine and for social time and less about training.
So I got in a super easy 7 days and I am ready to begin what I consider a reverse taper back into some quality workouts. I am chomping at the bit to pick some new races and continue to work toward my big goal.
