With a thesis and a graduation done and Christmas around the corner (more on those later), it has been really difficult to focus on my next big challenge: My 1st Full Marathon. I've got the hotel reservation, now all I need to do is make it through some serious mileage. While my thesis kept me from sustaining my training, I was still able to get in some good runs and a hike with the family. So for this week's training I'm skipping over any build-up (assuming I can at this stage still run a half-marathon) and am heading straight into full throttle marathon training.
Some of my personal goals for a successful week of training:
- Get at least 7 hours of sleep
- Ice any soreness for 10-15 minutes after a run
- Drink at least 4 glasses of water before AND after workouts
Tempo 5 mi
