Portland Marathon Training Week 16 – Workouts Recap (9/28-10/4)

This was my last week of training leading up to the Portland Marathon. My training went well but unforeseeable events on Friday/Saturday led to my just happy to finish the marathon goal. Note to self: do not have sushi close to race day. Here’s what I did last week:

Monday – Cross training day. I did Focus T25 Ab Intervals, a great core workout.11906149_420788611459432_1376685943_n

Tuesday – Ran a nice 3 morning miles.Wednesday – Ran my virtual 5 miler from Running on the Wall. They have great virtual races and other cool running products!Thursday – Rest Day

Friday – Rest Day

Saturday – Ran 2 miles.
Saturday – Completed my first marathon!!  My recap is coming soon, stay tuned. Happy to be a marathoner!!
