During week 17, I ran on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday for a total of 13 miles. Four days of running felt weird, but I had to trust in my training plan. I also managed to get to yoga one day, which felt amazing and I can’t wait to incorporate it more into my weekly training post marathon. I did manage to get 30 minutes extra of sleep per night.
During week 18, I ran on Monday and Wednesday only for a total of 7 miles. My focus for the week was getting more sleep and increasing my water intake. At the beginning of this week, I wished for marathon day to come quickly. After 17 weeks of training, I felt ready to tackle this huge challenge!
