LA Marathon Training – Week #17

My right leg feels good. However, my IT band started to scream at my this week. I hope to get it mostly worked out before the LA Marathon next Sunday. Looking forward to the upcoming low mileage (only 9 miles total) week!

I’m still seeing the sports chiropractor, but only 3 times a week. The last day I will see him will be a few hour before I fly out to LA!

Tuesday – 4 Miles
Weather: 46 degrees
Actual Miles: 4.10
Pace: 8:34
Time: 34:57
Notes: The first two miles my right leg felt fatigued and a little strained. Last two miles I felt stronger and leg didn’t feel too bad.

Wednesday – 6 Miles
Weather: 44 degrees
Actual Miles: 6.05
Pace: 8:34
Time: 51:59
Notes: Another wet run and soaked socks. Felt pretty strong toward the end of the run. Leg was a tiny bit sore/stiff. Not bad though.

Thursday – 3 Miles
Weather: 46 degrees
Actual Miles: 3.10
Pace: 8:06
Time: 25:02
Notes: Faster pace than I expected or wanted, but I went with it. Definitely NOT the pace I will be running the LA Marathon next weekend.

Sunday – 8 Miles
Weather: 48 degrees
Actual Miles: 7.08
Pace: 8:58
Time: 1:03:25
Notes: My IT band started to scream at me around mile 6 and a half, which is probably due to my sports chiropractor working on it the day before with graston. It tighten up and I finished my planned 8 miller at 7 miles. I ran marathon pace (around 9 minute pace). I slowed myself down when I noticed I was running too fast. I felt myself tighten up my legs and relaxed them. Wore some of the items I will be wearing for the marathon. A semi-dress rehearsal.

Total Week #17 Miles: 20.33 miles
Total LA Marathon Training Miles: 264.36 miles (total miles was really off the last few posts)
