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) […]

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 […]

Weekly Workouts- 4/24-4/30

Another week of workouts!  I can’t believe that April is already over, I swear time has been flying recently.  It’s weird because the days go slow but the weeks go fast. Anyways on to this week’s workouts. Monday- Vinyasa Yoga I got a package of yoga classes recently in the hopes of opening up my hips since after last race I had some angry hip flexors.  This class was different than the last but just as great and I really like the teacher.  I also like this a lot better than hot yoga which is just too much for my body.   Tuesday- Rest Day Ice cream and catching up with a friend won today. Wednesday- 4.5 miles (8:23 pace), Fartlek 10 min warm up 1 min on, 2 min off, 2 min on, 1 min off x3 1o min cool down Oh man, ever have those days where everything […]
