Peak week. Even though my mileage was about 20 miles higher the previous week, I ran my longest training run yesterday so I guess I made it to the top of my training plan. There isn’t really much difference this week other than my long run is only going to be 14 miles. I still plan to do one tempo run and a moderately longer (8-10 miles) later in the week. Next week will be a whole other ball game!

As I referenced in my last post, I’m following a three-week taper plan prescribed by Runner’s World. I’m working to keep my protein intake high to repair damaged muscle tissue and increasing my vitamin C intake to help boost my immune system to stay healthy. Sleep and extra rest, whenever possible, are a HUGE priority too.

I officially booked my flight today so reality is starting to set in! Marathon #9 is just 20 days away!
