LA Marathon Training – Week #18

The last week of training has come to an end. It’s been a crazy roller coaster of 18 weeks!

I’m still dealing with a tight IT band. I’ve been icing, stretching, foam rolling and seeing my sports chiropractor regular to allevate the tightness. It’s a bit better than it has been.

I decided to only run2 of the 3 schedule runs. I opted out of Wednesday’s 4 mile run to allow my legs and IT band to rest.

Tuesday – 3 Miles
Weather: 54 degrees
Actual Miles: 3
Pace: 8:49
Time: 26:21
Notes: Not my prettiest run. I made sure to keep a slower pace (failed at that. Doh!), because my IT band was pretty sore. Tried out an IT band strap. Not sure if the strap worked or not since I was still pretty sore from my sports chiropractor appointment.

Thursday – 2 Miles
Weather: 52 degrees
Actual Miles: 2
Pace: 9:31
Time: 19:03
Notes: Last run before the LA Marathon! Ran with Jon from Gametiime. Knee was a bit tight. IT band was a tad sore higher on the leg. Looks like my marathon pace might be in the 9-11:00 minute (most likely on the slow-ish side) range now.

Total Week #18 Miles: 5 miles
Total LA Marathon Training Miles: 269.36 miles
