Workouts 9/24 – 9/30

Ah, recover week after my half marathon. Oh wait, I’m still training for a full marathon so this is just another week of training. How crazy is that?? In the past, after running a half marathon I would take at least a week to a month to recover and now I just keep on going like nothing happened! I did only run two days this week, but I was able to achieve another personal distance record of 16 miles. I am truly being carried by God during these runs because I have no idea how else it is possible to run that far!

Workouts 9/17 – 9/23

Oh my goodness, it is less than 8 weeks until I run my very first full marathon. I am totally FREAKING OUT!!! As always, I just don’t feel like I am running enough. I am barely doing any weight training. But on the upside – I was able to get a new PR this week on my half marathon! Very exciting and I tried a new recovery supplement and it really worked! I was incredibly sore all day after the half marathon, but the next morning, I didn’t even know I had run! Amazing!

Workouts 9/3 – 9/9

Wow, wow, wow. My workouts have been severely lacking this week. When I came back to work after vacation, we were down a person and I took on a lot more responsibility. This has been great – I have really pushed myself to do more each day and be as productive as possible. It also means that I no longer can leave work in the middle of my day to go running like I had been during summer. Since I live in South Texas, it is also still almost 100 degrees everyday when I get off work, meaning this big baby doesn’t go running much! I made myself do a track workout early in the week, and then I did get a distance PR for my long run on Sunday. It was not a great long run, I really didn’t feel good, but I did complete it and that is what matters!

September Squat Challenge

Hi everyone!! I’m joining my first ever exercise “challenge”. I have been needing some discipline in my weightlifting, so when I saw this on Pinterest, I had to join!

So starting September first, I will be logging my squats daily. I’m thinking some days I might use weights and some days just body weight. The directions say to do a reasonable number of squats on the first day and add 5 each day after that. Also, take a before and after picture of your butt to see if squats really do give you a better backside!

Who is joining me???
