Marathon Recovery: Week 5 Complete

All done with Chicago Marathon recovery! This week I missed some miles due to a soreness in my right heel. I backed off and that seemed to do the trick!

Our anniversary is today (Sunday) and Rob got me a necklace from Tiffany’s and surprised me with a dozen roses of Friday.

Me and my beautiful roses:

Then Saturday my heel was feeling better so we did a run around the neighboorhood. It was dark out so we busted out the headlamps. They put off a great amount of light and were totally comfortable to wear!

Then today we had the Jingle Bell 5K race and both PRed!

Here is how the recovery went:
M: Upperbody weights
T: 5 Miles GA (‘Hood, 39:31, 7:55 pace)
W: 7 Miles GA (Treadmill, 1% incline, 54:28, 7:47 pace)
R: Rest
F: Rest
Sa: 3.55 Miles GA (‘Hood, 29:01, 8:11 pace)
Su: 5K Race (Jingle Bell 5K, 22:25, 7:13 pace, 2nd AG)

Total: 18.65 Miles

Now it’s time to start our next full marathon training plan, 13 weeks until Mercedes Marathon!!
