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!

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 […]

Weekly Workouts: 4/17-4/23

Hello, hello! Is it just me or are you also feeling super inspired after seeing everyone’s amazing performances at Boston and reading all of their recaps? It’s definitely lit a fire in me in terms of both athletic goals this year and also getting this blog up and moving again! It’s been a busy couple of months for me (I’ll share more soon!) but things are finally calming down. Every Sunday I am going to write a quick little post about my workouts so all of you can follow along with my journey and I’ll have an easy way to look back on it all! I have my eye on the Plattsburgh Half Marathon on May 7th (speaking of, I should probably sign up for that) and then will switch my focus to triathlon for IMLP 70.3 in September then back to running for NYC Marathon in November. It’s going […]
