Week 6 Marathon Training Plan AND Running Chics Winner
My mother has been in town, thus I haven't been on the computer... and thus, once again, I have fallen behind with my blog. I posted more while I was on vacation. But I'm getting back into the swing of things. Mom heads out on Wednesday morning, I have a bloggy get-together on Friday night, and then the big Rock n Roll Dallas on Sunday. Woo-hoo. (E-mail me if you want to come to the pre-RnR bloggy get together Friday night.)
Week 5 Recap:
Monday - 3 - Completed - I actually went 5. I was in a grumpy mood and needed to run it off. But I kept it at 4 miles at a very easy pace, and then walked 1. No bodyworks this Monday because it was the start of Spring Break, and I can't take all 3 kiddos to the gym.
Tuesday - 8 - Completed - I was starting to feel really sick, but I ran anyway (maybe this is why I was grumpy Monday). Major sinus head cold. Anyhow, the running didn't make it feel worse, so I turned on a Netflix movie and got in my miles.
Wednesday - 4 - Completed - Ran 4, Walked 1. Still under the weather a bit.
Thursday - 8 - Completed - Actually ran 8.2 (as part of the Cupcake Marathon... report coming!)
Friday - Off - Completed and Enjoyed
Saturday - 18 - Completed - Finished off the Cupcake Marathon. Not my finest run, but I got through it, and still 2 1/2 months out from the marathon.
Sunday - Off - Completed (Was surprisingly not sore after the 18-miler.)

As for the weight loss goal... it's going amazingly well. I'm already down 8 lbs with only 2 more to go for my June 5 goal. But 12 more to go for my ultimate goal. The key, for me, has been tracking calories. And, for the record, I hate tracking calories. Always said I'd never do it... but shockingly, it works!
