Recap: Week 3 Marathon Training

The NYC marathon is now less than two weeks away and I’m so excited for the big day to arrive. After months of training, I feel ready to take on the full 26.2 miles. This past week I ran both indoors and outside to get my training in. I completed my last long run on Saturday (14 miles) and plan to start tapering my distance down to allow my body to recover for race day. I still plan to run this week, however, my long run will be much shorter on Saturday. I also plan to do plenty of stretching this week to relieve any tight muscles in my legs. Below, I included a breakdown of my marathon training from last week:

Monday: Run: 5 Miles (Outdoors) Strength: 2 X 60 Sec Planks

Tuesday: Rest

Wednesday: Run: 7 Miles (Treadmill) Strength: 3 X 60 Sec Planks, 3 X 10 push ups, 2 X 50 Crunches

Thursday: Rest

Friday: Rest

Saturday: Run: 14 Miles (Outdoors)

Sunday: Rest
