Training Week 7 – such as it was….

26 Jul

I’m off my off-schedule schedule! And already in the middle of Week 8. But here we go!

It’s a quickie ya’ll ..and not because there were fewer days in the week!!!

The plan for the week was

Tuesday: 3 Miles
Wednesday: 5 Miles
Thursday: 4 Miles
Saturday: 6 Miles

What actually happened was….

Tuesday: 3.5 miles
Wednesday: Um…no miles
Thursday: Walked 6 miles in NYC
Friday: 2 random miles after driving to PA
Saturday: 6.5 miles in Harrisburg along the river

As of last Sunday I have:
112 Days
413.95 Miles (This should be 406.2 so I’m 7.75 miles off of plan)
before crossing the finish line at the Iwo Jima monument!

 

It’s Like New Year’s Eve Up in Here!!!

2 Jul

Welcome to July!

The end of the first half of 2018 – and it’s almost like getting to make New Year’s Resolutions again! At least, that’s what I’m doing! There’s also an awesome sale going on at my favorite clothing site!!

First things first

In my last post I mentioned that my training for Marine Corps has not been going so great. I was tying out the Galloway plan which was really a limited running plan (in my opinion) and it wasn’t enough for me to get any kind of momentum going.

Running for wear blue:run to remember in 2015

Since I am running with wear blue:run to remember this year, I have switched over to the plan provided by that group. It has more of a Hal Higdon feel to me and will let me build up my long run mileage. Fingers crossed this one works for me and that I can stick to it!! (Encouragement accepted on a daily basis!!)

In other news – Skirt Sports is having it’s annual (semi-annual?) end of season sale and let me tell ya’ll….there’s some great deals! The usual caveats (no codes, certain patterns and styles excluded and Free Shipping if you spend $150)  apply.  So head on over (affiliate link) to the Skirt Sports Sale page and get shoppin’!!

Also another great July ‘tradition’ over on Instagram is #31daysofskirtsports – a chance to show off your expanding collection of skirts (and tanks, and visors and…!!) Make sure you tag #31daysofskirtsports and #SkirtSports in your post cause ya know that Nicole loves to give away prizes!! Below is a suggested list of topics but it’s not written in stone! Do what works for you!

Play along!!! And don’t forget your tags!!

Hopefully everyone is managing in this heat wave that seems to have hit the entire country!! Even Phred has given up on sitting on the porch!!

Have a great first week of July!!! And let me know how you plan to celebrate the Fourth!!
