THAW Challenge: Marathon

THAW Challenge: Marathon

Oh Boy! I have experienced some difficult times training for the LA Marathon that is coming up very soon. No body told me running a marathon was so hard! I’m going to break down the process of starting to prepare for the Marathon and some of the hardships I went through. Hopefully it’ll help you a little bit! We are half way there!

Start: I started getting into the Marathon training Nov 5th with the Tustin Unified School District Dino Dash 10k (6.2 miles). This is the third year in a row I ran this race. I love this race and all the people involved. It was a slow pace for me (I was slightly under the weather) & we encountered some light precipitation on the course.

I then wrote up the weekly training mileage I’d need to hit for the marathon. March 18th is the goal at 26.2. I traced every week from then & started laying out the mileage I’d need to hit every week with a long run every Sunday morning. I started with four runs a week.

Update: I soon found out that I needed to run everyday to stay on track. I’d run 1-3 miles before/after my big run days. If I took a day off it would always turn into 2 days off, and I’d have to run every day of the week anyways. I soon was ahead of the schedule with my long runs on the weekends. I ran a 13.3 mile on 12/24 in about 2 hour and 15 minutes. The long run mileage I had to hit was updated because I was ahead of schedule for my long runs. Then the holidays & injuries got in the way!

Mistakes & Injuries:

I ran a rough 12 miles the week before my half marathon distance & felt terrible. I was dealing with two blisters on one foot, and the cold/wind had frozen me. I was so dehydrated that I could not even spit!

Resolution: Luckily we have some amazing patients who heard my sad story & gave me help! We got proper running socks which is an absolute must if you are going to start running long distances. These socks keep your feet dry & help stop chafe that may cause blisters.

Proper gear- I was given some awesome gloves & some added nutrition for the longer runs & recovery. I purchased a running beanie & headband. This new gear made the cold morning runs a lot better.

There was a slight dip in mileage due to the holidays. I was getting shin splints because my shoes were old and completely worn down, so I had to get some new ones. Once I got back into the running after the New Year I unfortunately had a hamstring sprain/strain.

Rehab:

This injury was not major, but it really upset me. I started out with the normal rest, heat/ice contrast therapy, stretching, cupping, as well as chiropractic adjustment. I was feeling good after about 3 days, but still could not run on it.

Nutrition: Because of the injury I really focused on getting my diet on track (following a Mediterranean diet, increasing my anti-inflammatory supplements [turmeric and fish oils]). Saturday dinners will now be chicken & rice until after the marathon.

Latest: It is 9 days post injury & I was able to jog without too much discomfort. I will have to keep up with the rehab & ease back into my running routine.

I will have to update my mileage chart to make the marathon distance without too much trouble, but I should be ok (a little more rushed than hoped!).

More updates & insights to come! Run Hard, Run healthy!
