27 Days

27 Days

I had some questions about how I handled marathon recovery, training, and tapering in between Chicago and Wynne. If you were one of those people- this post is for you! First, don’t underestimate marathon recovery and rest! Some marathons require more rest than others. Fortunately, Chicago was a fairly easy one to recover from and I felt ready to run after four rest days. I didn’t have any injuries going into Chicago so I’m sure that helped.  I have run…

Back to back Marathoning… and two 5k’s!

Back to back Marathoning… and two 5k’s!

On October 11th I ran the Chicago Marathon knowing full well I had plans to run another marathon 27 days later. Thankfully, the recovery process has gone well and tomorrow is the next marathon!

And this week I reverted to my…

My Little Rock Marathon Training (so far)… and other random thoughts

My Little Rock Marathon Training (so far)… and other random thoughts

Well, this marks my first and last “hard” week of training for the Little Rock Marathon.  Houston and Little Rock are 7 weeks apart and I am right in the middle of them now. I have only ever raced two other marathons before Houston and they were separated by ten years so having two planned 7 weeks apart is a bit new for me. I looked up a few training plans for back to back marathons and as usual I…
