Marathon Monday: Ready for Spring

After a sluggish and down right rough week of running I think I turned things around. I'm ready for Week 9 and the much better weather that is here (and even better that is on the way!). Saturday I managed to pull off a 14 miler with a runner friend who pushed me through the first few miles too fast! Hip was slightly achy afterwards which had me near panic mode for a few hours! Too long dealing with that injury that I'm still on edge with every ache. It got better, even took advantage of the weather on Sunday after a long work day and got Cooper out for 4 mile run/walk.

Oops nonmatching socks then entire run!
This week I'm excited to see what's ahead with temperatures in the 60s!

Monday: AM Kickboxing PM P90X Legs/Back/Abs (switching up leg day to Monday to avoid long run day)
Tuesday: Intervals 12x400 (6;15 pace) with 1 mile w/u and c/d
Wednesday: P90X Chest/Back/Abs and Cardio X
Thursday: PM Tempo run (7 total miles)
Friday: AM Cardio X PM P90X Shoulders/Arms/Abs
Saturday: 18 miles
Sunday: Yoga

I will be trying UCAN on Tuesday and Thursday for the evening runs as well as my usual Saturday. Also focusing on getting away from mindless snacking again as I track my food for the nutritionist consult at the end of the week. Trying to balance what I have been doing with what I want to her to see! Trying to hide my 2 pieces of tiramisu, yesterday afternoon oops! 

I have high hopes this week and putting last week behind me. How was your last week in training? 

Don't forget there are 2 days left to enter the Hemp Hearts Giveaway!


  1. Awesome week!! I've been trying to be a little more mindful of my snacking as well. I think I'm still recovering from holiday snacking (3 months later haha.)

  2. Nice work! What are you training for?
