A bit late but I figured I should get my 2nd to last week of training in before the actual Big Sur Marathon.
I was pretty much recovered from my GI illness and was able to get some okay runs in. I know that I’m supposed to be tapering so I didn’t really push myself too hard but I wanted to at least get some decent mileage in. I also tried to hold back a little in terms of pushing the speed (not that I’m fast to begin with).
Tuesday – 3.75 miles
Thursday – 4.25 miles
Friday – 6.25 miles (treadmill)
Saturday -3.5 miles
Sunday – rest
Total – 17.75 miles
Tuesday – 3.5 miles
I’ve been experiencing some tenderness in my left distal calf. It doesn’t seem to bother much after I get about 0.5 mile into my run but I can feel it when I am done with my run.

I’m still working on my Japan posts but here’s a sneak peek:
