First up, workouts from week 12 of NYCM training:
Peak weeks of marathon training:
With only two weeks to go until it is officially TAPER TIME for the NYCM, I’ve now entered my peak weeks of training. So basically, my mileage will be at it’s highest and my workouts at their strongest. Lots of quantity and quality mileage these next 14 days.
Since I want to do my best to not freak out about all the mileage coming up this week (OMG THE MILEAGE!), I figured I’d keep it nice and light here with some signs you may be peaking for a marathon.
Signs you may be peaking for a marathon…
You can’t remember the last time you weren’t hungry.
You’ve never slept so good. Life is basically run, eat, pass out.
Sore is your new normal.
You’re kind of over the whole “training for a marathon” thing.
The thought of actually running 26.2 miles at marathon goal pace is petrifying.
You can’t wait to taper but at the same time you know the taper will drive you crazy.
Anyone peaking for a marathon right now?
Any tips for actually believing that I can run at marathon goal pace?
