Week 6 of Akron Marathon Training

This marks the 1/3 point of my training and September 24th will probably be here before I know it.  Overall it was another decent week for me.  My major fail of the week was not playing the weather right on Friday and Saturday.  The plan was to run 13 miles on Friday and then do a long ride on Saturday.  Well, I didn't realize it was going to be as hot as it was on Friday.  Temps were close to 90 and the humidity was off the chart.  So, I bailed on the run after 7 miles.  On Saturday morning it was much cooler and raining.  I got out late for my ride and only get 40 miles in before I had to be somewhere.  If I would have swapped workouts.  Things would have been perfect.  As a result, I was down on miles this week.   The good news is that I have made up for it the past 2 days.  The best news of the week is that I lost another 3.2 pounds this week, which makes for a total of 10.6 pounds during the training.

Congrats on the weight loss during training! Can you offer any advice on losing weight during training? I'd really like to drop about 10lbs through the course of my marathon training and not gain any weight, like I did training for the Cleveland half. I really know my struggle is in the food department, always has been, always will be.

Keep up the great work!
