Recap: Week 2 Marathon Training

The NYC marathon is just around the corner and I’m more ready than ever to take on this exciting challenge. This past week I did a few runs, however, was very careful and took it easier than normal to prevent injury and to let my body slowly recover before the big day. I also started taking fish oil pills to help my joints and knees since they started to feel sore from all my long distance runs. I noticed these helped and will definitely keep them in my diet going forward especially when training for a race. This coming week I plan to take it slighter easier than last and fuel up with healthy meals and snacks. Below, I included a breakout of my training from last week:

Monday: Run: 3 Miles

Tuesday: Rest

Wednesday: Run: 7 Miles Strength: 2 X 60 Sec Planks, 3 X 10 Set Push Ups, 2 X 50 Set Sit Ups 3 X 12 Assisted Pull Ups

Thursday: Rest

Friday: Rest

Saturday: Run: 8 Miles Strength: 3 X 60 Planks

Sunday: Rest
