Marathon Training Week 2

My second week of training is complete.  I continue to fine-tune my training plan.  I had 3 miles on the schedule for after work on Tuesday.  However, I was feeling some soreness with my right lower leg (below the knee) on Monday and somewhat into Tuesday.  With my history of injuries, I don’t want to take any chances with hurting myself, especially this early into the training cycle.  So I decided to skip Tuesday’s run again.

( ) = # of miles on my plan

Tuesday – 0 (3)

Thursday – 5.01 (5)

Friday – 10.03 (10)

Saturday – 6.05 (6)

Sunday – 3.26 (3)

Weekly Total – 24.35 miles (26)

Overall I feel good at the end of the week.  Today’s run I did with my wife biking alongside me (she’s been doing this for some of my shorter runs and it is great having the company).  Compared to the run last Sunday, this one felt easier and my legs felt better – even though I did more miles this week than last.  Hopefully that is a sign my body is actually adapting to the miles.

I’m excited for this coming week as hopefully will be getting a fun delivery, we shall see and I’ll update as things unfold.

We had some crazy rains/winds here with more of the latter than the former.  These last few nights I’ve actually been awoken due to the high winds outside.  Somewhat scary as there have been multiple trees in the neighborhood that have either have large branches fall or even entire trees (as seen below).  Here are some shots from this past week’s training:

Broken branch on the river trail
River is slightly lower than previous but still fairly high
More daylight under the bridge than last week


Crazy crushed truck!
