New Blog

2 03 2010

I have exciting news that I wanted to share with everyone!  I’ve decided to buy a domain name and move my blog to a better platform where I can fully customize the interface and make the blog more fun.  I am not going to reveal the name of the new blog or anything like that yet, but as soon as I get it setup I will let everyone know.  I plan to continue posting on this blog until everything is up and running on the new blog, so keep coming back for news and updates.  I will also be continuing the post like usual in the mean time 🙂





Week of February 22 Recap and a Look Ahead

1 03 2010

Another great week of running down and I am one week closer to the marathon!  I was able to get in a solid 36.3 miles and felt amazing all week.  I am still very surprised not to have experienced any kind of injury thus far, but maybe a combination of experience and my Newton’s are helping!  Here’s how the week looked:

  • Monday – 30 minutes on the stationary bike and lifting
  • Tuesday – 5.4 miles
  • Wednesday – Rest
  • Thursday – 5.6 miles
  • Friday – 4 miles
  • Saturday – 14.6 miles
  • Sunday – 6.7 miles

Today starts week eight of my plan and the last time I was at this point in my plan I ended up taking the entire week off due to posterior tibial tendonitis.  It is a real comforting feeling knowing that I am further ahead then I was last year at this point in the training plan and last year I set a PR by over 25 minutes.

I have been following Keri’s blog where she recently wrote an excellent post about Pilates for Runners.  I have known for a while that pilates is supposed to be excellent for runners, and I tried the P90X yoga video out once last summer but quit after 30 minutes because I was too bored.  The benefits that Keri mentioned in her blog post are all ones that I would love to experience so maybe this is the week I force myself to try out yoga again.

There is also supposed to be a core workout seminar on Thursday that I might try to attend because I know that I have not been giving my core the attention that I should.  The P90X ab and core workout video is top-notch so I need to start doing that again.  My goal is to do an ab/core workout at least two times this week, so let’s see if I can accomplish that.  Since we are doing a workout on Thursday at the seminar, that will give me one of the two workouts.

I have 37 miles on the agenda for this week and I am very excited to get started with them.  Tonight is XT and lifting though, so the running will have to wait at least one more day 🙂
