All the workouts: NYC Marathon Training Week 17

Oh you know, just 5 days until the NYC marathon. Here’s how I’m feeling, Harry Potter-style. Practically speaking, if you want to track me (or anyone) here’s the link to do so. You just need a name. If you’re looking for general info on the race, I created a page dedicated to the NYC marathon where you’ll find resources including maps, great places to cheer and so much more.

Need even more? ESPN posted this excellent guide about running in NYC.

How did week 17 go? Well I ate everything within arms reach and then I moved over to eat whatever I couldn’t get to the first time. Life post-marathon training needs to have fewer trips to the office vending machine. A day with zero cookies will feel like a detox. In other news, I’ve had some toenail injuries (overshare?) but I think it’s all sorted. Anyone else dealt with that?

On the first week of taper, my true love gave to me:

Monday: Nothing

Tuesday: 4 miles

Wednesday: Lyons Den Power Yoga

Thursday: 6 miles. I ran to my friends’ house in Long Island City which meant one more trip over the Queensboro Bridge.

Friday: Nothing

Saturday: 8 miles; I tested out my race day tank. See below.

Sunday: Refine Method. Ouch.

Any last minute advice?

    Good luck in the race on Sunday! For last-minute advice, I’d say try to get some sleep over the next few nights. You likely won’t get much on Saturday, especially if you have to get up super-early for one of the transportation options.

    The NYC Marathon. Wow, that’s a big deal, and now I’m a tad bit jealous. And you did well for a week’s worth of workout.
