It was a SUPER easy week and my legs are feeling recovered from LA, but I know I need to be careful about getting back into intense running too quickly.  I really want to keep my IT band in shape and avoid any injuries!

I'm currently trying to figure out if I want to use the Pfitz plan that tops out at 55 mpw for SF.  I'm HORRIBLE at sticking with training plans...I always just do my own thing, but clearly that hasn't been working out so well for me so I think I might attempt it.  First I'm going to take a few recovery weeks and build back up to marathon training.

Here's how the week ended up:
Monday - rest
Tuesday - rest
Wednesday - 3 miles
Thursday - 4 miles, yoga
Friday - core strengthening
Saturday - 6 miles @ 8:50 min/mile
Sunday - 30 Day Shred Level 1

Total - 13 miles


  1. Good luck with picking a training plan! It makes me feel so much better to see other long distance runners saying they have a hard time sticking to them. I've had a horrible time sticking to mine!

  2. Me too Cate! I am so proud of myself, I am on week 5 of my half iron training plan. I have had to tweak a few things because you know, life happens but other than that i'm doing it. Good luck in SF. That looks like so much fun!
