Marathon Plan Week 4 of 24

Thankfully the plan this week is a "recovery week". Last week was HARD. One hour and ten minutes was a very long run for me yesterday. Still not 100% on workouts. Skipped the alternative 30 minutes of cardio and one strength training sessions. But, I did do all of the foundation runs and one strength training sessions.

This week should be much easier:

  • Monday: off
  • Tuesday: Foundation Run 40 min + 4 x 30 sec strides
  • Wednesday: Strength
  • Thursday: Foundation Run 40min + 4 x 30 sec strides
  • Friday: Alt. Cardio 25 minutes
  • Saturday: Optional Foundation Run 30 minutes; Strength
  • Sunday: Foundation Run 50 minutes

Since I have been feeling better on the miracle drug Prilosec, I did a wheat experiment this weekend. Wheat foods tested over 3 days (in this order): 1 Uno Breadstick (Friday), 2 oz plain pasta (Sat), 1 small low carb whole wheat tortilla (Sat), 1 cup protein enriched special K (Sun), one slice Maggie inspired Protein Pumpkin Bread (replaces banana with Pumpkin; Sun) and < 1/4 cup all bran (Sun). I think for me wheat has an additive bad effect. These were spaced out over the weekend with appropriate protein selections.  No other risky foods were eaten. I was still feeling OK on Saturday but by Sunday, I was incredibly bloated, achy & malodorous (room clearing). Wheat is evil. Darnit.
