Marathon Training Week 3

Week 2 is done and went much more smoothly than week 1. I felt pretty strong throughout the week and had no problem pushing the pace on Saturday. I struggled a little on the long run on Sunday, but I think it was because I went out a bit too hot and I also think the heat got to me a little bit.

Week 3 of my Fatass-to-Marathon Badass (F2MB) Makeover Program begins to ramp up the long run on Sunday while the short runs during the week stay the same.

Mon: Cross-Training (Cycling)
Tue: 3 mi run
Wed: 5 mi run
Thu: 3 mi run
Fri: Recovery
Sat: 5 mi run at target pace
Sun: 9 mi run

NOTE: I’m following Hal Higdon’s convention of considering Sunday as the end of the week.

I’m going to have a bit of trouble this week because I’ll be in Houston Monday through Wednesday. I’ll be taking my running gear so I can try to get out early, but it will be tough as all my meetings start at 8:00 or 8:30 and I’ll need to drive from North Houston to the Energy Corridor out west on Wednesday. I’ll figure it out, though.

Week three is sponsored by 1) Edisun and their eponymous 2010 album and 2) Janus and their 2012 album Nox Aeris.
