Marathon Training day 57….pffft.
So on Thursday, I had a bit of a Pow Wow with the Coach…
We discussed loads of stuff, and I knew things were going to change.
On Sunday I got this email..
Happy Easter! Congrats on luckys! I can help with open water swimming when you want to. You would do great in tris.
I will work on redirecting the training tonight.
I feel better about easing down your mileage. Your body will thank you:)
Yep hit the pool in Monday. Since you are not training for a Tri yet(lemme know I know you want to) I truly don’t mind either way on Monday if its swim vs pool run.
Shoot for 30 minutes tops.
I am going to aim to make this week a recovery week. If it does not feel like that, then back off even more. I want you to feel well rested by this time next week. Not flat.
I felt pretty good after this. In a way I felt a little Cheated as well, because I realized that it is only about 4-6 weeks away from the taper for the Bayshore Marathon. I keep thinking I could have toughed it out. To be honest, my left leg and ankle are still not quite right, and so I probably would have ended up with an actual injury… like in a BOOT. or on crutches.
Later that night my phone chimed again…
