Twin Cities Marathon Training, Week #3 recap

I loved this week of training!  The quality workouts continued AND Coach agreed it was a good idea to increase one of my runs each week for a medium-long run, since I am used to higher mileage.  I’ll still take a couple days off of running each week, but at least the mileage will be a bit higher now.  I also started doing more random core stuff (planks) whenever I have a few extra minutes in front of the tv or whatever.  I’m starting to be able to hold a plank longer/easier, so I can tell the core is getting stronger.
