Daily Sweat

On this page, I will track my exercise and training for the upcoming marathon.

FEBRUARY 7 – 13
Feb. 7, 2010:   14 miles in 2 hours 12 minutes.  Lots of snow during the run!

Feb. 8, 2010: Yoga at Breathe.  Class was a nice flow.

Feb. 9, 2010: 6 miles in 55 minutes.

Feb. 10, 2010: 8 miles in 1 hour 11 minutes.  Today’s run was great. I was not excited about heading out but after a few miles my mind loosened up and I had a great run.

Feb. 11, 2010:  I was supposed to do 6 miles – but the day kind of got away from me and I missed the run.  Ooops!

Feb. 12, 2010: This was my planned rest day so I kept it that.  I learned early on to stick with the training schedule and don’t change your planned runs or rests – even if you missed a run (at least for me that works best).

Feb. 13, 2010: Easy 4 miles.  In about 40 minutes. The roads were slippery from snow so we just took it easy.

FEBRUARY 14 – 20

Feb. 14, 2010 – 8 miles in 1 hour 8 minutes (woo-hoo 8:30 pace).

Feb. 15, 2010 – Rest Day

Feb. 16, 2010 – 60 minutes of vinyasa yoga in the AM.  6 miles in 51 minutes on the treadmill.  8.30 per mile average!

Feb. 17, 2010 – Rest Day.  This is my favorite week of training -we get three days off as we build up to our long run on Sunday!

Feb. 18, 2010 – 6 miles in 55 minutes. I used the one treadmill from 1984 at the hotel “fitness” center.  Yikes!  Overall good run and felt great to work out after 6 hours of driving.

Feb. 19, 2010 – Yoga.  I did a Dave Farmer Yoga Podcast from my hotel room.  No running – I love the weeks we get three days off from running. 23 miles – you better watch out – I plan on killing it on Sunday!

Feb. 20, 2010 – 4 miles in 36 minutes.

FEBRUARY 21 – 27

Feb. 21, 2010 – An epic 23 miles in 3 hours, 40 minutes.

Feb. 22, 2010 – Rest day, unless you count an hour of aimlessly wondering around the mall.

Feb. 23, 2010 – We got a late start tonight, it was dusk before we left the house. So our 5 mile easy run turned into a 4.5 mile run busted out trying to avoid oncoming track. We did it in 39 minutes.  New lesson – don’t run after dark on rural country roads.

Feb. 24, 2010 – 75 minute Dave Farmer Yoga Podcast in the morning – my hamstrings and calves were very tight.  7 mile run on the treadmill – my legs were pretty tired from yoga and still recovering from Sunday. Total time was 65 minutes.

Feb. 25, 2010 – 6.5 mile run in 58 minutes
