My Weekly Training Log {Marathon Training Week 10}

My training was kind of wonky this week. Since my long run was on Sunday afternoon of last week, I rode my bike for 30 minutes on Monday instead of running. I ran a quick 2 miles before class on Tuesday. I was supposed to run 8 miles of speed work on Wednesday, but you […]

My Weekly Training Log {Marathon Training Week 9}

Well, week 9 is over.  It was a pretty good week. On Monday, my weekly short run was fun. There was a torrential downpour on Wednesday, so I ran on the treadmill.  I did a 7 mile tempo run.  It was super boring. You will be so proud.  On Thursday and Friday, I completed a […]

My Weekly Training Log {Marathon Training Week 8}

Yippee! Rest week!  I was mentally ready for this week and it went pretty good. On Saturday, I was the final victim of the stomach virus that swept through the family.  I thought I felt pretty good, but as my time tells, I was doing pretty bad 🙁 Oh well, no more running after stomach […]

My Weekly Training Log {Marathon Training Week 2}

  Well, week 2 of marathon training is over and it was uneventful.  Those are my favorite kind of weeks. On Sunday, I cross trained with a 30 minute plyo workout.  My PT said I should do these to help strengthen my hips and knees.  It isn’t all that hard, but I always feel really […]

My Weekly Training Log {Marathon Training Week 1}

So, this is my first official week of training for the 3 Bridges Marathon.  I have 15 more weeks to go.  I have done this before.  I can do it again. Just a little of self-motivational talk.  I have decided that all my easy and long runs, will be paced by my heart rate.  I […]

Random Weekly Recap

I hope you guys have had a great week. Mine has been pretty good.  Nothing terribly exciting, just a good ‘ole week. Y’all know how OCD I am about planning.  I am running the Little Rock Marathon in March again, so I put all my training runs on my calendar.  I noticed something.  If I […]
