Marathon Training 2018 – Week 5 (of 26)

May 21, 2018 — Leave a comment

This week’s training went pretty smoothly –

4 days of running (T, W, F, Sa), and two CG days (M, Th). Our “long” weekend run only needed to be 4 miles. Starting this week, the long, slow, weekend miles accelerate fairly rapidly with stepback weeks in between: 4, 11, 5, 13, 5, 15, 5, 17, etc.

My buddy Steve was out for a couple of the runs this week due to a most unfortunate I-forgot- glide long run. He was seriously down and out for a few days. I felt bad for him. I had a couple of run alone days, one of which felt seriously sluggish. Not discouraging, but I just felt I couldn’t really move all that well.

But, I did get all my workouts in, and I continued to work on my food principles:

  • Make some wise choices / have a plan
  • Eat when hungry
  • Stop when full
  • Drink water; get sleep
  • Address reasons for eating other than hunger (don’t love this one, but it’s part of the deal)

So, I ended the week feeling pretty strong.

I’m raising $3,000 to help bring clean water to children and communities in Africa. $50 will provide access to clean water for one person. Will you help?
