Meal Planning & Prep and Weekly Workout Summary

After another amazing summer weekend, I am once again ready for some healthy meals this week! (I’ll talk about the weekend in tomorrow’s post.) As much fun as it is to relax and indulge, I just find that I don’t feel like myself and I truly look forward to getting back to my usual eating […]

Initial Marathon Training Thoughts

After yesterday’s post, it got me thinking about my own plans for training for the Philly Marathon. Since it’s later in the season, I have a little more time before I need to start training. However, I have already decided about some things I am going to do that are same or different from how […]

Running Makes Everything Better (Last Week’s Workouts)

The message I can’t get out of my head this morning is “Running Makes Everything Better”. I woke up this morning and was feeling blah.

Race Recovery and Running Plans

It’s been 10 days since the marathon, and I have “felt” recovered for the past 7. However, even though I don’t feel “sore” it is likely that my body is still recovering from the race, so I have been taking it easy. After a few days off and a few days of cross training, I […]

Raleigh Marathon Training Week 15 and Pre-Race Anxiety
