Training Tuesday

I think I've finally found my training groove again. And oddly enough, I found it on the treadmill!

Wed: rest
Thurs: 2 miles
Fri: 4 miles
Sat: rest
Sun: 2 miles
Mon: rest

Friday I wasn't feeling up to running outside, so I decided to hit the gym and run on the treadmill just to get it done. I was only planning a couple miles, but felt good and I got in 4. But... I think this affected my long run on Sunday. I had planned to go out for 6 miles on Sunday, but my calf was starting to cramp up a lot, so I only got in 2. As I'm getting back into the habit of running and logging more miles, I really need to keep up with stretching.

As I'm preparing more and more of my first marathon in January, I've been looking at half marathons to run for a time to submit for a better proof of time. The best half time I could submit is a 2:27. I'm pretty confident I can run a faster half and I've been eyeing one that is on July 13th. I'm still on the fence on whether I want to run it. 

I've gotten a lot of my packing/purging done for my impending move to Texas, so that's a huge relief. Now it's just a matter of keeping things to a minimum and staying organized. I'm excited, but I'm definitely going to miss my perfect 75 degree California weather! 

How was your week?


  1. I've learned to enjoy the treadmill again ( once I got some super comfy shoes)!
    I bet the packing and moving is very bitter sweet for you!

    1. It's weird to pack everything up and it makes me sad to leave everyone I know, but I'm excited for a new adventure. And of course, to be with my husband. :)

  2. Hey, every mile counts out there! At least you got some in :0) That is what is most important. So are you moving to Texas pretty quickly since you've already done some packing/purging?

    1. As much as I'd love to drive there right now, I've got work commitments until the end of July. :/
