It's 5 in the morning and I'm getting ready to go on my longest run of my training schedule, 20 miles. I just ate a PB&J to fuel me up so while it's digesting I thought I should catch up on what I've been doing this week. I've kind of been a slacker when it comes to posting (and running! oops!)

Sunday and Monday I took off because of our Chicago trip and because I've been trying to give my legs extra time to recover to avoid injury. On Tuesday I did a 45 minute Spin class. Probably should've run too but man it was hard this week!

Wednesday I ran 6 miles thanks to my swap with Darci, otherwise don't know if I would've gotten that in. It was a cool day so I was really booking. Finished in 52 minutes.

Thursday my legs were hurting (IT band issues) So I just did an easy 3 miles and then I did an hour of strength training. Friday I took off and today it's 20 miles. yikes.

I hope my slacker week of running doesn't kill me today. I'm going to listen to my body and if I need to stop I'll stop. We'll see how it goes!


  1. Blogging before running 17 miles further than any human should ever run, willingly...impressive (translated: masochistic) sis. Have fun and hope the legs hold up!

  2. You're doing great! you're doing plenty. Can't wait to see how the 20 miler went!! Yikes! I've got a question for you- what water belt do you guys use? I know you said you like yours and I've gotta break down and get one. I was looking at the amphipods at our running store, but just thought I'd see what you guys like first.
