The Week in Review, End of Summer

Another week done and dusted. That's 12 weeks, people. Only 4 to go! This marathon training is a bit like washing your hair with shampoo and conditioner. Rinse and repeat.

Here is the Week that was:

Monday - Brisk Walk, Yoga
Tuesday - 6 mile run, Kettlebell workout
Wednesday - Brisk Walk, Yoga
Thursday - 4.5 mile run
Friday - Brisk Walk, Yoga
Saturday - Brisk Walk
Sunday - 16.5 mile run

Yoga was a prime force of strength and stability training this week. Hip issues be gone! This week's L.A.R went off without a hitch, so holstering the bike was a pretty good (if altogether boring) move.

This week I'll feather in some biking and hiking. Because you gotta live a little!

Nailed the diet too...with one notable exception (see photo). Had to rip it up to celebrate the end of summer! Bringing the diet to the fore was always the plan for the final push up the mountain. After all, lighter is faster. I expect a diet wobble this Saturday. But otherwise, the plug is in the jug!

Hope all are well and thanks for the continued support and well wishes.

    What, drinking seltzer water and having veggie appetizers wasn't part of the animal head party?

        Summer only ending in Maine! (wishing it would cool off in Tokyo...) Yoga is definitely your friend when training for a marathon! Enjoy the diet wobble!

          @Fish - You got me. No shampoo here!
          @Matt - I'm still laughing at that comment 2 days later!

            Watch that IT Band brother. Sure you know best, but make sure stretch the shit out of it before the big day.
