Chicago Marathon Training Week 1

Sunday, June 3: 13.26 miles in 2:23:06 for a 10:48 pace.
Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego by my watch.

Monday, June 4: Rest

Tuesday, June 5: 3 miles in 31:19 for a 10:26 pace.
I was still in San Diego on Tuesday for work, so I ran along the water. I’m sure it would’ve been extremely pleasant had I been feeling good, but I had had a stomachache all afternoon. Sometimes running helps clear that up for me, but it certainly didn’t this time around. Shout out to the city of San Diego for having public restrooms along the water.

Wednesday, June 6: Rest

Thursday, June 7: Rest

Friday, June 8: Rest

Saturday, June 9: Rest

Please, try to not feel too intimidated by my remarkable training schedule on week one. Fortunately, nearly all of this was planned. I knew I wouldn’t have time to work out while I was gone, so I scheduled rest days for all of these days but Wednesday, anyway (I had Strength? on my calendar for Wednesday, so I’m not too upset about that turning into a rest day, either.) On top of that, I was under the weather nearly all of last week. The stomachache I had Tuesday afternoon turned out to be just a small preview of what was to come, and I haven’t been myself from a GI perspective since Wednesday afternoon (including now). I’m hoping to pop in to the doctor tomorrow to see if they have any thoughts on what’s going on. I feel fine, for the most part, so I think (hope) I’ll be able to work out normally this week, but we’ll see.
