Lately: Marathon Training weeks 4/5 and traveling with our toddler (yikes!)

So the past few weeks of marathon training I feel like I have been slacking just a little bit. My weekday runs haven’t been as long or intense as they should be. I have been having trouble squeezing in the time to get them done. I run in the morning because I wouldn’t have time to run at night until Ady goes to bed and by then I am exhausted. Plus, I am just a morning runner. That is the…

Weekend Workouts and Protein Shakes (and other fun stuff)

Saturday was a cross training day so I did the Upper Fix video on 21 Day Fix. And then I chased a toddler around… My training plan called for 12 miles on my long run day. I normally do long runs on Sundays and because we have a child, Brett and I haven’t been able to do these together… until now! My parents were able to watch Ady (thanks guys!) while we went out for a run. I forgot how…

Marathon Training Week 3 – Changing Things Up

So my third week of marathon training went okay except for running on sore legs which I mentioned yesterday and my speed workout once again was a bust. I don’t know what my deal is but I just can’t seem to recover well from doing sprints. It wears me out and then I don’t end up finishing the workout. I think most of this is due to the heat honestly. I’m either running outside where it’s hot or on my…

The Weekend and That Was Dumb

I’m happy to report that I did both my planned workouts this weekend. However, I did something really dumb. For my cross training workout on Saturday I did a leg workout. Then Sunday I ran 10 miles. So how do you think my legs are feeling? Terrible! Every part of my legs is currently aching. I don’t recommend working similar muscle groups like that 2 days in a row. It really wasn’t smart of me but Brett was doing that…

Marathon Training Week 2

The second week of marathon training started off uneventful but ended up really chaotic! My workouts went a little better actually. The first week I was still getting into the groove and felt like running was a little harder. I had more of my runner’s high I love this past week so that was great! During the beginning of the week my workouts were going well. I was tired in the morning but I knew if I didn’t work out…

Marathon Training Week 1

I’m a little late on this post! A week to be exact, yikes. So you will get the week #2 update soon, lucky you! The first week of marathon training wasn’t all that eventful because it’s the first week so I’m pretty much doing what I usually do in terms of running and working out. I ran 4 days out of the week, did cross training on 2 days, and had a rest day. I use Mondays as my rest…
