I can't believe that I've now finished 4 full weeks of marathon training! It seems that time is FLYING! A week from today is Chicago and I'm so pumped! I seriously can't wait!
This week my runs looked something like this:
Monday: 3 miles
Wednesday: 9 miles
Thursday: Leg strength training with Nick
Saturday: supposed to run, but missed the mark. Did walk about 3 miles or more with friends around Rochester Hills
Sunday: I stayed with my newest GYRO girl Christina in Rochester Hills and we set out for a 4 miler early this morning. (She's new to bloggy land so if you get a minute, stop by and welcome the newest GYRO member!) After about 1 1/2 miles in, she had a huge blister pop on her foot so we ended up walking the rest of the way back. It was super fun to just enjoy the beautiful park where she lived (seriously, if I lived here, I would be a CRAZY runner person just to explore!!) I had so much fun just talking about running and life in general. I can't wait to head there for another run sometime very soon!!
So my 10-12 miles turned into 2 1/2, but I will give it a whirl tomorrow. I honestly can't believe just how sore my legs are STILL from my workout with Nick on Thursday. My quads, hamstrings, hell, even my shins! I'm trying to decided if I want to workout with him again this week, or take it easy because I'm worried about being too sore for next Sunday...hmmm...what do you think?
Other than that, I've been pretty busy. I went to the Tigers game today (booo that they lost, but it was a good time!) I had an amazing night out with my friends in Rochester Hills last night (Alayna did too!)
Any upcoming races this weekend?
Hope you all had an amazing weekend!
