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) […]

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 […]

NYC Marathon Goals

“If your dreams don’t scare you they aren’t big enough.” The NYC Marathon is 6 months away! In case you didn’t see it on my Instagram or FB page, I am running this marathon for Fred’s Team.  This team raises money for Memorial Sloan Kettering for cancer research.  This cause is very near and dear to my heart because their cutting edge research saved my mom’s life in 2010!  Read more about my story and considering donating HERE! Before I get to the point of this post – my goals for this year’s marathon, I first want to give you a little background on the marathons I have run.  In college I vowed that when I graduated I would do a marathon.  So in 2014 I ran  the Philadelphia Marathon (4:09) and then in 2015 I ran Chicago (4:19).  Looking at the times I ran frankly disappoints me and if we are […]
