Here's what my work out weeks been looking like:
Saturday 9/21 - P90x legs and back
Sunday - 3 mile run with Piper
Monday - ACL Class (My final class, so I'm going to need another form of exercise on Mon/Wed)
Tuesday - Rest and body prep for the long run. This includes some stretching, rolling out the tight muscle with "The Stick", and some carb loading. My routine carb load dinner is 2 slices of cheese pizza from Papa Johns and 2-3 bread sticks! I'm hoping I can find a Papa Johns pretty easily in DC the night before the race. ; )

That was the last of my LONG runs. With a month left until the race, I am going to start tapering... I've never really truly tapered before a race before so I'm a little nervous that I'll lose some momentum, but I don't really have a choice as I'm having surgery tomorrow morning to remove an endometrioma on my left ovary. The recovery time should be quick, but it will still require some rest from the longer runs. I am supposed to run a half marathon with a friend a week from today, but will be walking it instead due to the surgery. Oh well, at least I will still be getting my miles in!
Thursday - Core workout from Pinterest. I usually take it easy on the days after my long runs.
Saturday - 1 mile run with Piper.
Tomorrow is surgery day so this week will be a very slow workout week for me as I recover, but like I said this time next week I'll be walk/running 13.1 miles so hopefully the recovery will be without any complications!
