Today’s Workout

MILES RUN: 5

TIME: ugh, too slow

WHERE? East River

HOW'D IT GO? Why are my legs still dead?!? They feel heavy and sore and I don't know how to fix it. It was a gorgeous day and I still had to force myself out the door at lunchtime to get in a few miles. Days like today make me hate running.

NYCM Training: 9 & 8 Weeks Out!

9 weeks to go!

Monday – 4 miles

Tuesday – rest

Wednesday – 8 miles. I had 15 on my schedule but that just wasn't going to happen. Worked too late and I just didn't have the time or energy to keep going.

Thursday – 4 miles

Friday – yoga

Saturday – NYRR Autism Speaks 4 miler. I PR-ed by over a minute! I know I'm still super, super slow but it's nice to see an improvement.

Sunday – post Atlantic City death. I laid on the couch all day and prayed for the hangover gods to just kill me off.

Total – 20 miles, 1 yoga session, 1 horrible hangover

 

8 weeks to go!

Monday – 4 miles

Tuesday – 4 miles

Wednesday – rest

Thursday – 3 miles

Friday – yoga

Saturday – another hangover. This needs to stop happening.

Sunday – 18 mile tune-up in Central Park on zero food or energy because I was so sick the day prior. I'm bad at life.

Total – 29 miles, 1 yoga session

Things I learned in the past two weeks:

  • I cannot handle booze. I rarely go out anymore but when I do I am SO SICK the next day…..like head pounding/so dehydrated/hurts to be alive kind of sick. I think I need to quit drinking until the marathon is over.
  • People take their clif shot bloks out of the plastic wrapper and wrap each blok in tinfoil? I saw a girl doing this on the subway on the way to race and it blew my mind.
  • My stomach does not like Gatorade. I had to stop THREE times during my 18 miler. Enough said.
  • I need new shoes. My feet and knees hurt while I'm running, so I'm thinking that's the cause.

  • WHERE: everywhere! east river path, battery park city, west side highway
  • HOW’D IT FEEL? Slow and humid! The marathon is 9 weeks away and I’m starting to feel kind of confident that I’ll actually finish. I know it will be slow but at least I’ll cross the finish line.
