I just wrapped up week one of my slow climb to 26.2 miles for the London marathon in April. I thought the week went pretty well. I followed my training program almost to a T…almost because I always have to tweak it a bit to my liking.
For this training cycle, I am following the Garmin intermediate training plan which is 3-4 runs per week based on time, not distance, which I prefer. You can easily edit the plan on Garmin’s website, adding or removing activities, changing your workout days, etc. so the plan fits your schedule and liking.
This week I completed 3 runs, an easy run on Tuesday, an interval run on Wednesday, Hot Yoga on Friday, and a quasi-long run on Saturday. Since I’m getting back into the swing of things, I am just really focusing on completed the allotted training time, and not really focusing on my pace, just focusing on getting it done. I work on speed during my interval runs, and focus on finishing my runs on the other days.

A few weeks ago I traveled to Memphis for the St Jude Marathon weekend. Yes I was there to run, but I also travel to actually experience the locale, explore the culture, and of course, lots of good eating! ….. Check out my recap of Memphis where I saw the National Civil Rights Museum/Lorraine Motel, site of Dr. Kings Assignation, visited Graceland, Home of Elvis. Had awesome BBQ on Beale Street, and just had an overall great time. This was definitely one of my favorite races that I’ve done to date.
Last month I was blessed to complete my 4th New York City Marathon! It was a hard, mentally challenging race for me, but I made it to the finish-line in one piece. Check out my recap vid below, and don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel!
The halfway point of marathon training, week 8! This week goes pretty well. I nailed all of my runs, and strength trained as well. This is the beginning of the hard part of marathon training. After this week is usually when the lull starts to happen foe me. At this point I am still on the training high, and pushing through strong.

Onto Week 7 of this years New York City Marathon training! This week was actually really fun. I got my usual swim/run/weight training in, but I also had the chance to hang out with my run buddies outside of running. Its always pretty strange when we get to see everyone outside of our running gear, because 80% of the time we are running, but when we do get to just hang out it is always a blast.
