Chicago Training [Week 4]

Chicago Training [Week 4]

I said it once and I’ll say it again, the weeks are flying by way too fast. The Chicago Marathon is in just 69 days. I can’t believe it. 69 days sounds so much shorter than 2 months… to me at least. Either way, it’s the same amount of time & I’m getting a bit nervous! That means it’s really time to buckle down on my training and nutrition. Last week I finally got into a good groove so I’m looking forward to continuing it this week. IMG_7971

Chicago Training – Week 4

  • Monday – 11 Miles
  • Tuesday – 6 miles + 20 min tempo
  • Wednesday – 5 easy miles
  • Thursday – 6 miles w/ 6 x 20 sec hills @ 95% effort
  • Friday – easy 3 miles
  • Saturday – Rest Day
  • Sunday – 11 miles -> was supposed to be 15 but my piriformis is bothering me today so I decided to cut it short.

TOTAL WEEK 4 MILEAGE = 43 MILES

Does anyone else’s piriformis act up?
Any stretches or strength training you can recommend?
