Marathon Training – Week 12 Recap!

by Her Happy Balance on September 29, 2015

Another week in the books! Only 8 more weeks to go until the Philadelphia Marathon {training is now 60% finished!} and only 3 more long, long runs before race day. Here’s a peek into my workouts for this week.

marathon training

PM –
Biceps and triceps

The day got away with me and it ended up being a rest day.

AM –
8 street miles

Rest – I actually journeyed down the shore on this day to get out of Philadelphia for when the pope was coming into town to escape the craziness. I took a little pope-cation 🙂

AM –
5 beachy miles

AM –
I got a day pass at a gym down the shore and used a new machine, I did 35 minutes on an arc trainer/elliptical hybrid and a very light upper body workout.

AM –
OCNJ Half Marathon! Such a great, great race 🙂

Do you try to work races into your training?
When you travel, do you ever get day passes to a local gym or do you just stick to running?

You are doing so great!! When I saw your picture from the half I was slightly confused that I had miscalculated your marathon for a second haha.

HAHA! Nope – you did not miscalculate! I just decided to throw a race into the mix because it just happened to fit into my schedule so nicely 🙂

When I travel I make sure the hotel I am travelling to has a treadmill. You are really doing well with your training. Have a great day

Thanks, Heather 🙂 I’m taking a work trip in November and the first thing I did was check to see if the hotel had a fitness center…luckily I’m covered!!

I had a few friends that took a pope-cation as well to escape the craziness. I live at the shore, where do you usually visit?

I usually vacation in Ocean City, NJ. I’m so glad I got out of Philly and got a chance to visit my happy place!
