This was NYC Marathon week. Very low volume with about 2-3miles of light running per day. The first half of the week was recovering and evaluating AthHalf. Everything post race felt great and I was very excited to race NYC. During my largest taper week, I focus on “Don’t stand when you can sit, don’t sit when you can lie down” when in taper. To keep me from going insane, I normally find a few good movies to watch or a puzzle to do. I think I nailed my taper and I was feeling fantastic going into the marathon. Check out my last post on the race breakdown to see how it all went.
OFF WEEEEEK!! I took a fantastic week off. I did one group run and one group ride. Both were fairly low efforts. The rest of the week was being a vegetable on the couch without thinking about intensity minutes, quality workouts, or fatigue. I really needed that week. Now it’s time to get back to training and weekly breakdowns will return. Follow me on Strava for daily updates on what I am doing. My first week back is the start of the Zwift Academy Tri Workouts. I will be using these workouts for the next two weeks to build back into full volume training. In December, I will be hitting the workouts one more time at full intensity. I am very excited to see what is ahead.
