NYC Marathon Training Week #4 – Sunday

Ah, Sunday. Because I did my long run Saturday night, this was a free day. Well, I had to do some cross-training. I biked Leslie Spit in the morning – almost the same path we took for Midsummer Night’s Run race the night before. The Spit is amazing, so pretty and peaceful. All in, I […]

NYC Marathon Training Week #4 – Saturday, A Midsummer Night’s Run

The TL;DR read recap: I crushed it. The longer recap: A Midsummer Night’s Run was back on the Spit this year, but with a few changes: we ran to Cherry, along the Martin Goodman trail, and then out on the Spit. PRE RACE: I picked up my race kit around 10am and then went out […]

NYC Marathon Week #4 – Friday

Today is the day before race day, so I had 4-5 easy kms on my schedule. The satellite on my Garmin wouldn’t get going in the morning – I think the insanely cloudy weather we’ve been having was affected it. I needed to get going so I could get to work early enough to shower […]

NYC Marathon Training Week #4 – Thursday

The corner where the run began. In an effort to be efficient, I decided that I would run home from work on Thursday and then run back to work on Friday morning, so I could bring everything I needed in one go and not have to walk to work – I could leave my bike […]

NYC Marathon Training Week #4 – Wednesday

Everyone loves a cat photo. Slept in until 7:45, it felt blissful. Got home from work and it had the “it’s going to rain any second” vibe going on. (It never rained.) I felt exhausted, so I opted to take a rest day and catch up on all the household chores I’ve been ignoring. Considering […]

NYC Marathon Training Week #4 – Monday

Reusing photos. I’m getting lazy. On Monday, I headed to the pool in the morning. I got there early enough that I decided to push myself to do a 45 minute swim instead of my usual 30 minute swim. For the first 35 minutes, I alternated between free and using a kickboard, and for the […]

Surfs up marathon number 3

Yup, it’s true. After dropping the hint last week it’s time I came out with it – I signed up for my third marathon! But I have to honest I actually made this decision before running the Paris Marathon. I know. Something must have told me Paris wasn’t going to be good, that and I knew deep down way […]

NYC Marathon Training Week #3 – Sunday

Sunday is long run day! After sleeping for 12 hours, I felt better, but not amazing. After some mind games (“you can always run in the evening!”) I sucked it up and headed out. I was told to run for 90 minutes, and did the same thing as last week: 15 and 1s, with my […]

NYC Marathon Training Week #3 – Saturday

We went to the park today. This photo is not from that day, but it involves a park! And a dinosaur! Today wasn’t supposed to be a rest day, but it was. I woke up with a vicious headache. By the time it had settled enough to run, it was the middle of the day […]

NYC Marathon Training Week #3 – Friday

Did the 7:15 morning flow class at Yoga Tree again. I felt tired and sluggish, but my whole body felt better after class. I need to keep reminding myself how much I benefit when I do yoga regularly when I’m training for a race. I know it means compromising something else, like strength training, but […]
