…and just like that, training for the AirBnB Brooklyn Half Marathon came to an end this week. It was definitely a fast 12 weeks of training!
Quick 2 mile run before going out to celebrate my dad’s birthday!
I volunteered with my job at a local park. It was kind of warm that day and we spent 2 hours pulling weeds and doing overall clean up of the park. It was hard work! I ended counting that as my workout for the day, lol
I took the day off work so I could go down to Brooklyn to get my bib for the race. NYRR puts on a pre-race party for this bib pick up and it was pretty cool! I also did my usual Boot Camp class (55 minutes) that evening.
Another 2 mile run.
RACE DAY! 13.2 miles for the AirBnB Brooklyn Half Marathon. (Race Recap coming up on Wednesday).
Semi-Rest Day – A recovery walk and lots of stretching and foam rolling.
Total Weekly Miles – 17.2
Total Training Cycle Miles – 194.4
Grade – B
It was a pretty light week for workouts because the race was Saturday. Although the race didn’t go as planned due to things out of my control (calf cramp, serious GI issues), I’m still pretty happy overall with this training cycle. Of course some weeks were better than others, but I think I had a pretty solid training cycle and a good base as I start marathon training. Thank you all for joining me on this 12 week journey!!
Although this training cycle is over, I’ll be jumping right back into training starting tomorrow! I hope you’ll also join me for my 20 weeks of training for the Chicago Marathon!
Random Question: Does anyone know where I can buy any “In Training” Chicago Marathon merchandise?
Did you have a good week? Did you race this weekend?
