LA Marathon Training – Week #16

I’ve been seeing the sports chiropractor the entire week. They have definitely helped my leg with a combination of deep massage, graston technique and taping. It feels a lot stronger than it did. I was able to put a good amount of miles on it this week with minimal issues.

I will continue to see the sports chiropractor up until a few days prior to the LA Marathon. Though it will only be 3 times a week.

Tuesday – 5 Miles
Weather: 46 degrees
Actual Miles: 5
Pace: 8:34
Time: 43:01
Notes: Thought my strained right leg would hurt. Not the case! Took the first mile slow (9:11/mile), but felt good enough to speed it up a bit. Really enjoyed myself during this run!

Wednesday – 9 Miles
Weather: 49 degrees
Actual Miles: 9.10
Pace: 8:42
Time: 1:19:12
Notes: Wasn’t sure what to expect during this run. Started out slow, but felt strong after a few miles. It felt as if I wasn’t injured. Schedule called for 8 miles ran 9. Could have made it to 10 but didn’t want to push my luck.

Thursday – 4 Miles
Weather: 47 degrees
Actual Miles: 4.05
Pace: 8:25
Time: 34:03
Notes: I wasn’t really feeling the run until about 2 miles in, which seems to be typical. Overall a solid run. Leg definitely feels strong!

Sunday – 12 Miles
Weather: 46 degrees
Actual Miles: 2.54
Pace: 8:42
Time: 22:16
Notes: Should have been a 12 miler, but felt the strain at 2.10. I probably could have ran slower and got the 12 miles, but didn’t want to push my luck.

Total Week #16 Miles: 20.69 miles
Total LA Marathon Training Miles: 244.03 miles
