Breathe! Breathe!

Five weeks left to the L.A. Marathon! The butterflies are starting to appear....

Last week - 41 miles running, 9.5 miles rowing for a total of 50.5 miles. Oh - I seemed to miss a post about Sunday's 16 miler in the warmth of Southern California. Nothing particularly noteworthy about it - just an 8 mile out and back done at midday.

This week's plan:
  • Monday: Row 5km. Stretch and core workout
  • Tuesday: 10 mile tempo
  • Wednesday: Row 10 km
  • Thursday: 6 mile general aerobic. Stretch and core workout
  • Friday: Rest
  • Saturday: 20 mile long run
  • Sunday: 6 mile pace
  • Total plan: 51 miles

Then there will be 4. Weeks. Until slow death. On the streets of Los Angeles....


  1. I feel like such a slacker just reading your schedule!

    Wow, 5 weeks? You've got this thing down!

  2. Hi Glenn,
    Ha ha, four weeks until slow death!! I think that you are going to be just fine:) You have been working so hard...it will be a piece of cake...just a walk in the park for you!! I get butterflies all the time:)

  3. Looks as if you have done the hard work in your training and your race will be the easy part.

    Mind you I always have nerves before a race.

  4. It is so exciting! 5 weeks to go. You are doing your traiing so I think you will be awesome out there. Try to have fun, it is always about the numbers.

  5. Sorry I meant to say that it ISN'T always about the numbers...typo!

  6. 5 weeks!?! Just around the corner. If you are like me you can't wait for it to come but when it is here you want more training time. Use these weeks for some good training!

  7. You are keeping yourself so busy!

  8. c'mon, home stretch. couple more weeks and then coast to the start line (and then 'coast' to the finish, right?) :)

    you've really been doing awesome in this training cycle!

  9. TEN mile tempo run? Wowza. I hope to get up to that distance - but not for a while! Amazing!
