I’ve decided to start my training a little early since I will be traveling a bit over the next few months and will miss out on some key runs. Hopefully a head start will relieve some of the marathon training stress! I will be okay with missing some runs or making them up at another time so I can focus on LIVING my life
I changed the days so that my long runs fall on Saturday and rest days fall on Sundays. This is how I like it because I have one day to sleep in on the weekends plus, Ben and I can enjoy lazy Sunday mornings.
In addition to Day One of Marathon Training, I’m also going to change up my fueling for training. In addition to breaking 4 hours, I also want to cross the finish line at 145ish pounds (I’m not stuck on a specific number, but want to be 10 pounds less than I was at my PR).
After being out of town last week it was hard for me to get back on track. I was still eating like I was on vacation with too many treats.
The plan is to 1.) cut back on sugar (I’m trying to keep snacks under 9g a serving) 2.)make sure I’m getting enough protein and 3.) track my eats just like I’m tracking my miles.
Happy Sunday – relax and enjoy
