This was a very short week of training for me. I was still recovering from my terrible stomach bug on Monday and still wasn’t feeling great on Tuesday, so I decided to scale back and take it easy to ensure I had my energy back. Then things got busy at work and I was only able to get one good days’ workout in on Wednesday and a trail run on Friday (it was a local holiday).

I was also in Beirut for the long Easter weekend and had the chance to squeeze in a quick workout at the hotel. It wasn’t much, but better than nothing. Here are some pictures from the longer run on Friday:

And the totals:

I only had a couple of quick gym sessions this week as well, so it’s nothing to write about. I plan make a better go of it next week when I will have my last “long” run of the training cycle before tapering down until race day (one month!).

As always, see my Training Plan for the exact exercises I perform at each workout.

 Until next week!
