Marathon Training Week 11

This week didn’t go exactly as planned, because….well life. For the last few weeks I have been comfortably busy at work, and then this past week was as if everyone came back to reality.  So my training schedule didn’t go as smoothly as I hoped, and my desire to increase my mileage[...]

Marathon Training Week 10

This week’s long run was really tough. Once again I was the last person back to the store, so late that they had broken down the fueling station. While I was originally somewhat happy that I had even pushed myself 17 miles practically alone for the last 8 miles walking into that store with not[...]

Marathon Training: Week 9

I wavered a bit this week. I was just excruciatingly tired.  I wasn’t really sleeping that well and the temperatures reached “hot as hell” proportions at my normal run times. I still got three runs in….though I feel guilty about my long run turning into almost nothing. Physi[...]

Marathon Training: Week 8

This is what I like to call the cross over week. It also happens to be half way through my training plan…coincidence? I think not. I call it cross over, because it is the first week where your long run gets you to the point where you are committing to doing more than a half. […][...]

Marathon Training: Week 7

Week 7 is in the books, and we are under 80 days to the New York City Marathon.  After my long run last week, I decided it was time to cut back on the number of times I was running during the week. I think my body just needs a bit more recovery time as […][...]

Marathon Training: Weeks 5 & 6

I dub these past two weeks “a break from humid running.” I was in NYC for much of the first week. Before my first run in NYC the news said it was a humid one out there — I was prepared. Had my extra water, my body glide and a way to stash my shirt […][...]

Marathon Training Week 3

This was an exciting week for me. Mostly because I was finally linking up with a running group to keep me motivated and I would get a new route! Thankfully this was a “back off” week. I say thankfully, because I had some terrible runs that left me scared I had already injured myself R[...]

Marathon Training Week 2

This week was all about ensuring I didn’t get off track while traveling. Luckily, I arranged my travel (and fun activities) in a way that actually made it quite easy. Monday: Rest Day Resting on Mondays is quickly becoming my favorite thing. Mostly because I am exhausted after the weekend, eve[...]

Workout Review: PurCycle

When you think of boutique cycle studios you usually only hear about FlyWheel or SoulCycle. For people who aren’t spin aficionados they can be incredibly intimidating and overwhelming. That’s not the case with PurCycle in Delray Beach. The best way to describe PurCycle is a Mom & Pop[...]

Even 20 Minutes Works

I’ve had one of those months, where I am lucky if I spend three days in a row in the same city. This also means that when I am in the same city, I am working significant hours. Mythical “slow season” strikes again. My whacked out schedule really had the potential to derail my train[...]
