Route 66 Marathon Training Week 10

Another week is complete, and my legs are well aware that we are in the peak weeks of training. This week was all about running on tired legs. By the time Saturday’s 20 miler came around I was feeling the effects of the other workouts of the week. I drove down to the city for […]

Turning 32 and Adult Drinking Habits (TOL)

I always get excited when I start my Thinking Out Loud posts because it means the weekend is in sight! -It reminds me of college when I used to go out on Thursday nights and convinced myself that it was the start of the weekend. It always made for a struggle on Friday but it […]

Monday’s Meals and New Recipes

Thoughts from the Halfway Point

As I mentioned on Monday, I recently passed the halfway point in my marathon training. With 8 weeks down and 8 more to go, I thought I would take a few minutes to reflect on what I have learned so far- thinking out loud style. 1.BODY GLIDE!!!  I have been running for over a decade […]

WIAW: Keeping It Simple

Lately I have been all about keeping my meals simple. This means leftovers, making recipes I am familiar with or that seem easy, and preparing foods on the weekends, like my on-the-go breakfasts. I think that I am getting to the point in training where I don’t have the energy to do anything extra, yet I […]
