Weekly Workouts

If you'll remember, I completely let go of all running-related stress last week.  Then, this week, I had to keep reminding myself not to stress :)  The week started out great, but then fizzled toward the end with all the sickness we had going on.  The Callaway Gardens half is just a little over 6 weeks away, so I've got to get the miles in!

Monday:  4 miles on the treadmill.  I watched Melissa and Joey on Netflix, which is HILARIOUS if you've never seen it!

Tuesday:  Session 1 (30 minutes) of Jillian Michael's Yoga Meltdown DVD.  This KICKS my tail every time I do it.  Probably because I only do it once every few months, but I'm going to work on that :)

Wednesday: 5 miles on the treadmill. <--I'm REALLY wanting some outdoor runs!!  It's just too cold!  I do change up my incline to mimic outdoor running, but it's just not the same!

Thursday:  7-minute workout (I'll explain more about this later!)

Sunday:  8 miles on the treadmill.

Total miles this week: 17
Total miles that I was 'supposed' to run, according to the training plan: 25

SHOUT OUT to my friend Anna, who ran the Rocket City marathon yesterday morning.  It was her first marathon, and she finished in 4:25:00!! GO Anna!!! <--After saying that I NEVER wanted to run the marathon distance, this made me change my mind a little.  We are discussing the idea of a fall 2014 marathon.  (ONLY discussing, so don't hold me to anything just yet!)

What is your favorite race distance?
Mine is still the 5k, because I like the shorter, fast race.  I'm really digging the half though, too.

If you had to pick only ONE race to run each year, what would it be?
Toray Rebuilding Together 5k.  It is the first race (post-high school) that I ran and it holds special memories for me.
