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[...]

Marathon Training Week 1

This first week was all about figuring out my routine. I got used to waking up extra early, shifting my yoga class schedule, and getting back into the swing of early bedtimes on Fridays. I did a lot of research on new hydration and refuel options. I am trying Nuun and Salt Stick and Myothon [&hellip[...]

It Begins: Marathon Training

I officially begin training for the NYC Marathon this week. I’ve been dreading it slightly because the humidity is just unbearable already and I know it is going to be hard. Like real hard. So I’ve signed up for a running group with Runner’s Edge in Boca. I start Saturday morning r[...]
