All the workouts: Marathon Training Week 4 & Maine Mini Moon edition

There are 93 days until the NYC Marathon. Past NYC marathon runners: How did you do it?! How did you train in this miserable heat?  Send advice!

Last weekend we escaped to Maine to visit Acadia National Park. We LOVED it. I wrote about hiking and biking in Maine. Check out those posts here:

Hiking in Acadia: Beehive Trail, Gorge Path Trail and The Great Head Trail

Here’s the full recap from week four of marathon training:

Monday: Rest

Tuesday: 3.5 miles in NYRR group training class. This was meant to be speed work but I was barely able to run, let alone run quickly. My legs/body were totally spent.

Wednesday: I followed a yoga for runners video I found on Youtube and did a few planks

Thursday: Rest

Friday: 9-mile run in Portland + short hike in Acadia National Park (the Great Head Trail). The run was tough, I had the chills and was sweating at the same time. Has that happened to you?
