Training Week: January 10th- 17th

Monday: 1 mile and some rolling and stretching.
Tuesday: 45 minutes of Pilates and 6.5 miles of running
Wednesday: 1 mile and then a weight workout with kettle bell, bosu, and a medicine ball. Left me sore for days. Body weight workouts are no joke
Thursday: 4 miles around the hood but felt sluggish and irritable so called it good enough
Friday: 4.5 miles. Set off in the hood once again and got about 3 miles in and my knee made a weird pop and felt funny so I headed home. Iced it and it seemed fine. I don't know what that was about.

Saturday: Wore a knee brace and headed off on the trails for 8 fun, fast and pain free miles with my trail group.

Sunday: Wore a knee brace again because that seems to make everything better and did 12 miles up and down Scenic Drive with my training group.

 I never really get tired of the views from Scenic drive. This run trashes the quads but it is worth it.

Total miles: 37.5
Cross training:  Not great
Days until marathon: 27!

Days until a fun road trip and ladies galentine weekend with some of my favorite ladies: 25!

What? Do you not drive for 8 hours on Valentine's weekend to a race with your favorite ladies and then spend Valentine's Day running 26.2 miles? Well then you are missing out!


  1. It sounds like a really solid week of training. My favorite Valentines ever was actually running a 14k a few years ago. You are hilarious though and I love your sense of humor!

    1. Thanks for reading my blog! I feel like running is an appropriate activity for all holidays! ;)
