Marathon Weekly and Getting Closer!

Week 9 and I am over halfway. A strange week with O’s summer dance recital craziness and Ragnar, so no long run and likely a cut back week for miles but the hills! My poor quads are still screaming,

Monday: Core work later and Run fail (hamstring pain) 6 mile walk instead
Tuesday: Spin in am and Strength with trainer, walk 2 miles. Evening 7.5 mile run coaching
Wednesday: Yoga and spin
Thursday: Morning strength and 6 mile interval run, Appointment with sports doc in prep for Ragnar and we have a plan for the next 6 weeks. Can I just say I hate how lingering issues change everything! I can run again but hills suck thanks to avoiding them for the past 18 months!
Friday: Ragnar! 4.5 mile run and 6.2 mile run Hills!!
Saturday: Ragnar! 5.0 mile run and 4.8 mile run (Full Ragnar recap later)
Sunday: Sleep! Run/walk 5.5 miles. No strength thanks to shoulder issue L
A peek at the Ragnar gang!

Week 10 only 6 weeks until goal race, where did it go? This week I also cross in to a new age group, yikes! It seems there are certain ages that are tougher than others and 35 is one! Oh well, let the fun begin as birthday week kicks off tonight with a happy hour with my running group J

Monday: Run and core (I hope, taking puppy to the vet for what I think but hope isn’t an Achilles' rupture L ) Still catching up on sleep from the weekend, yikes I think I am more tired now than I was on Saturday!
Tuesday: Spin in am and Strength with trainer. Evening run coaching
Wednesday: Core and swim
Thursday: Morning run, family bike to the beach and afternoon strength (what better way to spend a birthday)
Friday: Spin
Saturday: Easy run then off to Matt’s triathlon, strength later
Sunday: 16-18 miles

How was your week? What was the best workout? Have you dealt with a long term injury that made you change training?

Have a great week and enjoy the run J


  1. Sounds like some good training! Sorry to hear about the pup! Hope everything is ok.

  2. Oh, I can't wait to hear your Ragnar recap! So fun!

  3. I've always wanted to do a Ragnar. Can't wait to hear all about it!

  4. Woah, only 6 weeks out? That's coming so quickly!! Excited to hear more about Ragnar!

  5. Wow, your training is just flying by! This last week, my best workout was the second of my 3 mile training runs, just felt really great about it!

  6. Hope you have a great birthday! My best workout this week was a run during vacation. Looped around the beach house neighborhood and had an average pace of 8:37 for the 4.12 miles. I can really see a progress with my speed, so it was a really exciting run! Looking forward to reading about your Ragnar experience!

  7. Awesome! My training last week was really slack. I had a really great run on last Tuesday, but that was the highlight. This morning, I had a good 6 miles run and I will be doing some cross-training and strength tonight! I hope you have an amazing birthday!

  8. Thanks to forefront running, I can continue to run.

  9. Can't wait to hear about Ragnar! Only 6 weeks til your hard work is going to pay off!
