Week 2 recap: I still didn't die.

Here is a recap of Week 2:

Mon/Day 8 - Rest:  SUCCESS!   I did absolutely nothing exercise related.
Tue/Day 9 - Weights:  SUCCESS!  Did the upper body circuit.  Triceps didn't hurt quite as much this week.
Wed/Day 10 - 3 miles:  SUCCESS!  Logged 3 miles.
Thu/Day 11 - 4 miles:  SUCCESS!  I ran it in the evening but I ran. 
Fri/Day 12 - 3 miles and weights:  SUCCESS!  Also in the evening but I got it done. 
Sat/Day 13 - Rest:  SUCCESS!  Instead I my friend S and I were the ladies who lunch.  We shopped, we lunched, I got a mani-pedi.
Sun/Day 14 - 6 miles:  SUCCESS!  It was a slow start -- darn exercise-induced asthma plagued me for the first mile and my legs felt like wood until amost mile 3 -- and I was soaked, but I logged the 6 miles.

Total mileage for the week:  16 miles.

I can't believe tomorrow begins Week 3.  The schedule is below.  As I mentioned before, running three days in a row this past week was really fatiguing for my legs, so I've swapped my weights day around.  Also, the seven mile long run on Sunday will be the longest distance I have ever run.  My foot was sore before and after running, but still not too bad during.  I'm watching it closely for any swelling or any other sudden changes.  Fingers crossed, it will stay status quo until after Eugene.  (Ideally, it will get better completely!)

Mon/Day 15 - Rest.
Tue/Day 16 - 3 miles.
Wed/Day 17 - Weights.
Thu/Day 18 - 4 miles.
Fri/Day 19 - 3 miles and weights.
Sat/Day 20 - Rest.
Sun/Day 21 - 7 miles.

Hope your week goes well!

  1. Great job. Looks like a good w/o week ahead. You'll do it and it will feel GREAT!

  2. Thanks! I've been working on my speed in my shorter runs, with my longer runs for now just about doing the distance. Hopefully I'll soon start to see the benefits of the short run work in my long runs.

  3. Just checking in on my Cilley Girl! I ran three times last week and worked out three times. I am very proud of myself.

    Have you heard of the warrior dash? Go to to check it out. I am wondering if I could ever be in good enough shape to endeavor something as fun and crazy as this! The one in NY is the closest one to me!
