Two more weeks in the Marathon Training clinic. We’re almost there! All the hard work is done.
This week focus on your sleep. Try to get 8 hours plus the amount of miles you are running per week in minutes. Example: 45 miles… 8 hours 45 minutes per night. Also try to stretch, massage, or roll…. once or twice per day. Make sure you are warmed up first, with 5 to 10 minutes of getting your blood pumping by walking, jogging, steps, or stairs.
Keep the same number of runs you have been doing… but, cut back in intensity and distance to 70-80% effort. Of course, keep up good nutrition and hydration.
The Santa Hat 5K Family Run/Walk takes place on Sunday afternoon 4 pm at Ala Moana Beach Park. Join the fun event put on by the Mid-Pacific Road Runners.
