Last week was difficult. I really underestimated how long it would take me to bounce back post-marathon. My legs felt alright, but I was struggling with constant fatigue and after making it back in the gym Thursday and Friday, I spent the weekend fighting off what felt like a chest cold. I napped, ate a hold bulb of garlic, drank orange juice with ginger, and focused on resting.
This week I’m looking to push a little harder. I’m doing the Santa Shuffle on December 2nd and even though it’s a non-timed event, I’d like to hit a PR for my 5K. I really like the Nike Run Club app so I’ll be using that again to guide myself. Here’s what the plan is this week:
Monday: 4.5K Kick Off Run
Tuesday: Arms, Core + 15 minute Benchmark Run
Wednesday: Legs + Cycle
Thursday: Arms, Core
Friday: Legs + 4.5K Recovery Run
Saturday: 11.5K Long Run
