Weekly Workout

marathon training w12

I will blame my complete LACK of wanting to get up and workout before work on daylight savings time… I am not sure how long I will be able to blame my non-workout days on this yearly occurrence – but that is what I am sticking to for now! It sure does mess with my internal clock…


Workout Recap

Marathon Training – Week 12

Sunday- no workout – I just was busy with other things and family stuff. I know there were several times that I could have got out and ran, but I just wasn’t thinking about it!

Monday- lunch run – 5 miles

Well, I didn’t get out for a morning run (darn you daylight savings!!), so I opted for a lunch run! When I started, I knew my pace was a little fast (and it was…for me!!) but I tried to keep it up for as long as I could. I broke the run down into 3 parts – a 3 mile “quick” run, 1.5 miles easy pace, and then walked the last 0.5 miles back to work. Boy was it HOT today…I guess I should get used to it if I wait until 3pm for my afternoon jaunt!


Tuesday- easy, morning run – 3.25 miles

I have been in a funk about getting out for a morning run – well that stops today! A short morning run is better than no morning run at all! This morning was perfect 50+ degree weather and I was overdressed 🙂


Wednesday- no morning run – I wanted to be able to get a longer run in this week,…but I am not sure this is going to happen! I got up in enough time to get in a longer run – just I just wasted time doing the dishes and looking for my SS card (which I never found)… Oh well, tomorrow is another day and another attempt to get up early and RUN!

Thursday- no workout – a slow morning, a busy day at work, and an evening of laundry, cleaning and packing means that I made a lot of excuses not to get out and run.

Friday- cross training morning – Insanity Pure Cardio & quick, easy paced run (1.5 miles)

Since we are hitting the road for Dallas today, I wanted to get in a workout or run. The hubs was snoozing while I was sweating it out in the living room with Shaun T (I would have gone outside, but it was a cold, 30+ degrees, rainy morning, no thank you!)…then we hit the road for 8+ hours of “fun”! Yay RNR Dallas weekend! Our first Racecation! 

Saturday- easy paced, miserable feeling, morning run – 3.75 miles

Well, the original plan was to run the Rock and Roll Dallas 5K this morning – but as luck would have it, it SOLD OUT before we got registered. Well, that just means that I get to have my own running morning! New shoes are not kind on my feet and I was cursing myself for thinking I could keep trying new shoes before tomorrows half marathon… 

Weekly Miles: 13+ miles (I ran more miles the following Sunday than I can the ENTIRE week before) – **cue WHOMP WHOMP**

457 / 2,016 miles in 2016 (dedicated running, walking, crawling, workout miles)
