A Standard Week of Running and Strength Training

This past week of workouts was very similar to what I have been doing most weeks recently. I followed my plan from last week without changing much, and have definitely been feeling better about my running. Dare I say I am over my running slump? I hope so!  After Sunday’s rest day last week I […]

Scheduling Weekly Workouts Without a Training Plan

I mentioned yesterday that I came up with a loose schedule for my workouts this week. Without a full training plan, it can be challenging to figure out how my week will look. When I don’t go into the week with a plan I often get frustrated about not setting up my workouts appropriately. For […]

Warm Weather, Daylight Savings, and a Boston Baby Shower

I can’t believe the weekend is over already, and the time change isn’t helping. I’m excited that springing ahead means that we will have more light in the evenings, but the mornings are going to be rough for the next few weeks. And I am not a fan of losing that hour of the weekend. […]

Race Pace Effort Adjustable Workout

As you probably know, my last marathon was in November and since then I haven’t done any races (other than a virtual 10k) and almost all of my runs have been at an easy pace. My mileage has been lower to work around the winter weather and I have pretty much just done whatever pace […]

End of February Weekly Recap

Another week has come and gone, and today is the last day of February! I always find March to be a bit of a letdown because I expect it to magically get warmer but usually it’s still pretty cold and sometimes there is even snow. Hopefully yesterday’s springlike weather is a sign of what’s to […]

Last Week’s Workouts 11/30-12/6

Last week was all about doing different types of at-home workouts. I tried out various strength training exercises, pilates, yoga, and barre DVDs/videos. I ended up being quite sore, and as a result only ran 1 day last week. At first I felt like I “should” have run more, but then I remembered that my […]

Route 66 Marathon Training Week 16

I’m writing most of this post on Saturday, the day before my race, because I am sitting around with nothing else to do. After the race I’m planning to add in the results before this publishes. I feel like this week of training was kind of boring, and the actual race is the “important” part of this week, […]

Training Reflections for the Route 66 Marathon

I really can’t believe that I am two days away from marathon #6! Four years ago this weekend was when I toed the line for my first marathon ever, the Philadelphia Marathon. Sadly, I did not blog back then so there was no documentation of my personal experience, however, my friend Alli was blogging at […]

Route 66 Marathon Training Week 15

I feel like I can’t really start this post without saying something about the attacks in Paris. However, it’s also super awkward to talk about how horrible it was and then just jump into talking about my training. But when I thought about it, I realized we can’t let these things stop us from going on […]

Route 66 Marathon Training Week 14

Well last week was an interesting one, and I sure was glad it fell during the taper. Traveling for work can really throw a wrench in marathon training, and for those of you who do it all the time, I’m not sure how you manage it. Between working long hours, not sleeping enough, and not eating […]
