I have 15 weeks between the Gold Coast marathon and the Melbourne Marathon.
I am making sure that my first priority is a full recovery. Hold off training until my mind and body have recovered from the awful performance in the Gold Coast Marathon.
I plan to take two weeks ” off”.
I was pretty fit before my last Marathon and I don’t think all that fitness disappears completely during a spell of easy running.
LAST WEEK’S REST :
Monday : Very short jog day after Marathon.Legs sore.
Tuesday : Another short jog.
Swimming in a very cold pool ( my Tri days are over for sure)
Wednesday : Gym…51 minutes of pushing weights and ab exercises
Stationary Bike…15 minutes easy
Thursday. : Gym….55 minutes
Stationary Bike…22 minutes
Run…easy 3 Km.
Friday : Run 3km a little bit faster than previous
Saturday : Short jog
Sunday : Run….6 Km…in the rain. Ok.
So today is the start of the second week of my recovery.
Feeling pretty good but that is probably because I am not doing much.
PARIS & GOLD COAST Marathons were disappointing. My plan is to a lot better in the Melbourne Marathon. It will be my 14 th Melbourne Marathon.
