Dallas Marathon Training: Race Week!

Last week's workouts:
Sun 11/25: Yoga Rest
Mon 11/26: Yoga or rest Detox Yoga, 20 min
Tues 11/27: 50 min pace run 4.17 miles, 47:50
Wed 11/28: Strength training Rest
Thurs 11/29: 40 min recovery run Rest
Fri 11/30: Yoga or rest Yoga for Runners, 25 min
Sat 12/1: 9 mi run 9.25 mi, 1:46:43

I ended up taking more rest days than I'd planned, I was worried about my knee. I also had another sports massage on Wednesday, it was great! I am getting another one the day after the marathon, I'm already excited.

Hard to believe that race week is here already! It seems like training has flown by, but at the same time I know how much time and effort I have put into preparing myself. At this point, I am as ready as I can be and just need to get myself to the starting line. I'm almost paranoid that I'm going to get sick or hurt before Sunday, maybe I should wrap myself in bubble wrap until then!

This week's plans:
Sun 12/2: Rest (I went to the zoo with some friends, so we were walking for several hours)
Mon 12/3: 30 min elliptical
Tues 12/4: 2.78 mi, 30:44
Wed 12/5: Strength training
Thurs 12/6: Rest or yoga
Fri 12/7: 30 min easy run
Sat 12/8: Rest or yoga
Sun 12/9: RACE DAY! 26.2 miles
