Chicago Marathon Training, Week #5 recap

I feel much better about this week!  I was smarter about my paces and smarter about not getting too wrapped up in the cycling and letting it interfere with my running.  Also did a decent job with core and/or pilates every day and I can feel that the core is stronger.  What I did NOT do a great job on was eating.  Uggg.  Feeling large and squishy again.  Damn you,  you DQ Blizzards!

This week is a cut back week.  Gonna let the body rest and recharge and get ready for the intensity to pick back up next week.

  1. I had a DQ French Silk blizzard tonight–you are right–it was amazing! I’m loving my Sunday night DQ trips.

    Great work on the training! I’m glad you had a good week.
