Week of Fitness 2/24-3/2/2014

Hello friends! I hope you are all doing great! I just wanted to stop in to let y’all know how my marathon training is going!

Sidenote: Ryan’s work and my school were both cancelled today because of icy roads! It’s so weird to me that it’s March and only a week before spring break and we are still having winter weather! Saturday it was 80 degrees here, and Ryan and I went outside to enjoy the weather. I wore shorts and a tank top! Now it’s freezing. Typical Texas weather.

Anyways, here are last week’s workouts!

Monday: 4.62 easy miles. My legs were extremely sore last weekend from my last long run, so I did this run easy. Then I did a new arm workout that I can’t wait to share with you guys! Also, I did some yoga poses that Christine said were good for runners!

Tuesday: 5×50 workout from PurelyTwins

Wednesday: Wednesday was a stressful afternoon that made me very short on time. I was only able to run a fast two miles and then do random strength and cardio exercises inside as I waited for dinner to cook.

Thursday: 5 miles, and I planned on doing abs in the afternoon, but we had a really busy afternoon and night and I wasn’t able to get around to it. That’s totally okay though

Friday: Yoga, oh how I am growing to love yoga and the challenge of trying to improve. πŸ™‚

Saturday: 20 miles!! I was happy with how this went, and I felt much better when I finished than I did the week before after running 18!

Sunday: Rest! After those super long runs, I always love rest days. πŸ™‚

If you read my last post then you know that I said I was going to go back on my mileage last week…that obviously didn’t happen since I did a 20 miler. I started thinking, and instead of taking a rest week, and then running 20 miles and 22 miles back to back weekends, I decided to run 20, cut back on my mileage this week, and then two weekends from now go for 22 miles. Last week I also didn’t get in near as much strength training as I was hoping for, so I am going to try to get in more strength workouts this week!

Okay, now time to go off and enjoy some time with the Hubs! Have a great day and week!

P.S. I miss posting more often! Love y’all!


  1. I’m a little late in this, but congrats on 20 miles!!!! How did it feel? That’s awesome!

  2. Woooah your running totally inspires me. I’m excited for you and your upcoming race!! I have a half marathon on Sunday and I am getting nervous / excited!! Running is not my forte… I’m more of a yogi, so sounds like we are both dabbling in each other’s fitness zones πŸ™‚

  3. Wowww you are a running beast! Keep running the race sista, literally. Hah! πŸ˜‰ And your blog is looking niiice! I just answered your Q about layouts on the comments, but it’s kind of long….Hope it helps. And omgness I have been so addicted to yoga. It’s baaaad….like, I wish I could do it everyday bad. But I try to keep it to 3x a week.

  4. Wow 20 miles is legit! What marathon are you doing? I’m doing a half at the end of May. I love the message behind your blog. I am also a born-again daughter of Christ and thank Him everyday for the miles He allows me to put on my legs πŸ™‚

  5. Hi!! So glad I found you blog. Excited to ride along your running journey with you. I’ve only completed 2 half marathons, but someday I want to complete a full! I love that I get to read a mix of fitness/running and faith content here on your site! I just started blogging at barefootthunder.com and I am hoping to strike a similar note- writing about barefoot running, cycling, and faith related topics!

    Ps- looking at your race history, it seems like you live in north Texas? If so, we are neighbors! I’m in arlington!
