Break time

What a week it's been! Last week was finals week at school, and although I didn't have any finals I was very busy with final projects and group presentations. Luckily, the weather was very cooperative and I had some great runs. Unfortunately, my watch wasn't cooperating much, but here is a look at what workouts I did!

Monday: 3 mile run on the treadmill with 30 minutes of strength training.

Tuesday: 4 mile run around campus. I hit 200 miles on my watch, which means it took me 8 days less than the first 100! I can't wait to keep increasing my miles and see them add up!

Wednesday: 50 minute power sculpt

Thursday: 4 mile run around campus. It was sprinkling when I began, which turned into a downpour by the time I finished. I forgot how much I loves running in the rain!

Friday: trip home! Christmas vacation starts!

Saturday: off day

Sunday: 6 mile run at North Park

I'm so excited to start my marathon training plan, which I found with help of one of my running idols: my friend John! He's run in so many marathons, most recently New York! He is amazing and I hope to follow in his footsteps one day.

Merry Christmas to everyone and keep running!

Pittsburgh Marathon: 137 days!

Finishing Up

At lot has happened since my last post. I went home for thanksgiving break and went running at home a lot, which was great to get back on track. While there, I ran a five mile race, the Turkey Trot. I've run the race in the past, but always the 5k, not the five miler. It was a great day and wonderful weather, and I got to run most of it with my friends.

I've also been getting back on track with running at school. I'm almost ready to start my marathon training schedule and I'm SO EXCITED! Right now, I'm working on getting my endurance back and weight lifting again. I've done some great runs and can't wait to move forward with this!

Here's a look at what I want to do this week:
Monday: 3 mile run
Tuesday: 3 mile run and half hour power sculpt
Wednesday: 5 mile run
Thursday: cross training
Friday: 3 mile run
Saturday: 1 hour run at home!


I can't wait until I can start updating my blog regularly again. I have some great ideas to make it better, and once this semester is over I can make them a reality. Bye for now!
