Happy Monday to you all and Happy Marathon Week to my fellow Chicago running pals! Friday I will be taking off for a fabulous weekend with some lovely ladies 🙂 I can hardly wait!
Workouts the Week Before A Marathon
This week I will be doing 3 runs. Today I ran 5 (speedy 42:45) miles, Wednesday I will be hitting up 5 more miles and then Friday I will finish the week off with a 4 mile EASY run. I really want to do the interval class that I tried last week, but with how sore I was the next few days after I donâ€™t want to take my chances. No yoga as well, I donâ€™t want to risk pulling something. Just light stretches and a a bag class will be fine 🙂
A while back Rokit Fuel sent me some of their newest energy mixes to sample, I havenâ€™t had the guts to try them until today. Pumpkin Chocolateâ€¦HOLY YUM!
This flavor sounds amazing, but not to sure on these directions. Just tear, add water, and squeeze. This would be great if you were camping for sure.
I improvised and decided to try to warm it up for a much smoother texture. Just poured it in a bowl and a little water and popped in the microwave for 1:30.
I added in a little Chobani Vanilla Greek Yogurt 🙂
With a little Apple Crisp from Saturday night.
Mixed it together and it tasted super yummy! Loved the BIG pumpkin flavor 😉 This would also be great to take with me to Chicago!
Off to work I go. Thank goodness I have a short week 🙂
Question: How many runs do you get in the week before a marathon, triathlon, or some big race??
