Another week of plugging away at miles of running. This one will top off at 56 miles following tomorrows 26 miles and Sunday’s 6 mile recovery run. Still have three more peak weeks until I enter the beginning of a taper period leading to MMTR.
So tomorrow I will build off this challenge of fueling my body better and getting the needed calories in.
Water (60 oz.)
Cytomax (40 oz.)
Honey Stinger Gels (will take 1 every half hour)
Luna Bars (2)
Boiled Potatoes (4 small red potatoes with skin)
Stinger Energy Chews (1 pack)
I have mapped out 5 and 3 mile loops and will use my car as an aid station.
On another note….
My son (aka Coach Morgan) has joined me in a weight routine that we have now been doing together twice a week for 8 weeks. In the past, weight routines of any kind have always made my legs feel heavy and fatigued during runs. After doing this routine for several weeks I have begun to notice that my body is adapting to this workout and I feel stronger for them. Sometimes my legs feel heavy but more times than not they feel good. On Monday we are going to change the routine and tackle a new weight training plan for our next 8 weeks. Mostly I have enjoyed doing this with my youngest but I will also say that he is tuff on me and cuts me no slack. What a great Coach!
