Week 2 – IMLP70.3

Week 2 is done and dusted! I didn’t hit all of my workouts (two a days is HARD) but I listened to my body and got in quality workouts. Monday- 5/29 Total Rest Day Tuesday- 5/30 RUN: 6x800s (Total: 6.59 miles @ 8:15) A quiet morning on the track busting out some 800s. I felt super in control the whole time despite being super sleepy when I first got there. Splits: 3:23, 3:22, 3:21, 3:24, 3:23, 3:20. Wednesday- 5/30 BRICK: BIKE- 1 hour intervals on the trainer, RUN- 5.26 miles @ 9:02 Waited until later at night to do this which is never really a good idea.  The bike felt good but the run, oof, not so much.  Too many veggies for dinner left me with an upset stomach and heartburn but I am proud of myself for getting through it. Thursday- 6/1 SWIM: 400-300-200-100 (Total: 2000 yds at 2:04/100yd) […]

Week 1 – IMLP 70.3 Training

Wooo! 70.3 training has officially begun! The big race is Lake Placid IM 70.3 on September 10th so we’re about 15 weeks out. This year with my HIM and marathon so close together I decided to enlist the help of a coach.  I went with Kindal (@runningwithstrength) and she is going to guide me through two succesful races.  Not going to lie when I saw the schedule I freaked.  Every day there are two discplines, sometimes together in a brick and sometimes as two workouts.  It is going to take a lot of coordination and effort to get it done but luckily Drew is also training so I have a buddy along the way. Here’s how Week 1 went down! Monday: 5/22 Total Rest Day Tuesday: 5/23 RUN: 4×1200 at HMP (Total 6 miles @ 8:17) Before this workout I went to the doctor for my heel. I was freaking out […]

Plattsburgh Half Marathon Recap- Crushing Goals!

Plattsburgh Half Marathon Official Time: 1:39:28, 7:37 pace Watch: 13.28 miles, 1:39:38, 7:30 pace Overall: 43/351 AG: 3rd/53 Gender: 9/179 At the beginning of 2017 I made one of my fitness goals to break 1:40 in the half marathon and as of this weekend I can successfully cross that off my list! Going into the weekend I was honestly pretty nervous because this will probably be my last half marathon for a while and potentially for the year due to my personal and tri/marathon schedule.  I was starting to put pressure on myself to hit this goal and quite honestly I hate that feeling so I tried to be as calm as possible and remind myself to have fun, it’s just running after all. My dad was also running the race and we stayed at our condo in Lake Placid the night before so all I had to do was […]
