LA Marathon Training – Week #13

Finally back on track with my training schedule with less than 6 weeks to go until the L.A. Marathon! Overall a pretty strong week. I was extremely lucky with the dry weather this week. Definitely surprised myself this week!

Tuesday – 4 Miles
Weather: 46 degrees
Actual Miles: 4:14
Pace: 8:27
Time: 34:55
Notes: Woke up early to get my run in. Nice to finish before 8am. Not a bad run. Right leg felt a little sore and stiff. Overall not bad. Found $2 on the ground during my run. Ran to a store and bought two $1 scratcher tickets. Sadly my luck ran out there!

Wednesday – 9 Miles
Weather: 47 degrees
Actual Miles: 9.3
Pace: 8:39
Time: 1:20:29
Notes: The weather was perfect. I ran a few hours later than planned, but less people were out. Legs felt a little off and I almost wanted to stop 2 miles. Yup, one of those runs! But powered through it and came out with a not-so-bad time.

Thursday – 5 Miles
Weather: 47 degrees
Actual Miles: 5
Pace: 8:13
Time: 41:14
Notes: I could definitely feel that legs and hip were sore. Thought I could only run 3 miles, but hit my 5. I thought I was running slower than usual. I thought wrong!

Saturday – 18 Miles
Weather: 41 degrees
Actual Miles: 18
Pace: 8:34
Time: 2:34:39
Notes:  Felt pretty good for miles 1-13. But miles 14-18 were pretty tough! Had to take a few breaks to catch my breath. Overall a pretty good run with prefect weather.

Total Week #13 Miles:  36.83 miles
Total LA Marathon Training Miles: 209.91 miles

  1. Good luck to you! I ran the LA marathon last year and it was fantastic! I thought about doing it again because I take a trip to LA to see my brother once a year, but I decided on the La Jolla Canyon 50k instead. I’m trying not to repeat races I’ve already done. Have a great time out there!
