Capital City Half Marathon Training (x2): Week 4

Monday = 1.3 walk on the TM over break.
Tuesday = SNOW DAYYYYYY!  Work was cancelled, CARA Six was cancelled (again), and I was LAZY.  I had a meeting in the morning, then I watched tv all day.  I SHOULD have gone for a run before the snow got too bad.  But I did not.
Wednesday = I was bound and determined to make Chick’s Night happen.  I wanted all of March to be run-errific.  But I didn’t leave work in time, so I was super duper late, but still got in about 3.2 miles with the Lincoln Square Chicks.
Weigh In Wednesday – +3.8.  NOT happy.  Back to business time.
Thursday =  Committed to today’s run.  One hour on the treadmill with Chopped and Sweet Genius on the tv.  5.4 miles.
Friday = Day off DOR.  Like I needed another day off…  but my body felt really tired today.  I did walk to and from the movie theater, so not TERRIBLE, but not a great day.
Saturday = 5 miles in the sleety snow.  Grabbed a coffee and some groceries right after, came home and my tummy was unhappy with me the rest of the day.  😦
Sunday = Work work work!  Elliptical to follow.

I have completed all of this week’s March Abs Madness, too.  Side planks are not getting any easier…  But practice makes… a stronger core!

Capital City Half Marathon Training (x2): Week 3

Monday = 3.3 miles on the elliptical over dinner break.
Tuesday = This was supposed to be the first day of the CARA Six Leaf Clover Runs, but we got a snow storm and they had to cancel.  I was scheduled for 4 miles, but work got cancelled too, so I got in 3.7 on the treadmill.
Wednesday = CRAP day.  I was on a train that got stuck, I walked pretty far to work in the snow, I was late, and I was supposed to go to Chick’s Night at Fleet Feet.  My train headed there was also late and I had a mini meltdown then went for sushi.
Weigh In Wednesday – -1.8.  Being sick brought me right to exactly my goal weight.
Thursday = Lunch time treadmill run.  I got in 2.8 miles, not too bad.
Friday = Day off DOR.
Saturday = Back to my group!  Even one week off is too much, so it was good to get back out there today.  6 miles, a little slow, but felt good.
Sunday = Wacky 5k!  32:10 finish, jugglers, a girl on stilts, and an icy finish line.  Had a PT from Accelerated Physical Therapy stretch me out afterwards, and I was SORE the rest of the day.  Short-ish recap to come!

I didn’t make it to the Six Leaf Clover run because it got cancelled!  Hopefully this week’s run is still on, but we are getting hit with more snow.  Chicks night just NEEDS to happen.  I need to make it happen…  Also, more core work with March Abs Madness!
