Well, last week when I warned I was going to be starting Marathon Monday posts again I had no clue that I would be hobbling around on marathon legs… but well, then yesterday happened! So I guess you can say I am starting Marathon Monday’s out on a good note?? Or something…
I was a little worried that after running this marathon that I would loose all motivation to run again like I did after Maritime but this time I can’t wait until my legs stop hurting so I can go on a short run again and work back into some sort of training thing. So hopefully when January roles around I will be a little more trained than I was for Lakefront…
So anyways, last week looked like this in terms of training:
Sunday: Jackie Warner 40 minute Weight Circuit DVD
Tuesday: 4 miles in 38ish minutes.
Wednesday: Yoga Body Bootcamp with Sister as teacher!!
Sunday: Run a Marathon.
So, a total of 30.2 miles for last week in the running department Which is probably about 26.2 more than I’d done the week before… oops!
It was a busy marathon weekend for others too. So many large ones in the Midwest and also one in Portland that I know of! One of my fellow Girls on the Run Coaches finished her first out there! So if you ran a marathon this past weekend, congrats! Although I was told at work today that apparently I am not a good runner… because someone’s daughter-in-law runs marathons “all the time” and she’s never sore so I must have done something wrong. But she’s not my mother so she’ll let my mother scold me. What? Whatever!
I’m the first to admit I don’t always make the sanest choices when it comes to running but that’s only because I love it so gosh darn much! Even if it leaves me walking like a 90 year old women the day after…
