{marathon training} week 1

Oh my! It has been way too long!

Work has been chaotic over the past couple of months and as we head in to fall things should be settling down some. So it’s time to get back on track! Not that we’ve been completely off. We haven’t stopped meal planning but fitness definitely took a back seat!

Happy to say we kicked booty this week! I am officially training for a full marathon! The plan I started has me slowly conditioning for the longer training weeks. Definitely needed!! Since Monday was a holiday, I started on Tuesday and we managed to get in some extra miles throughout the week.

{week 1 recap}
Monday – Food prep + cleaning
Tuesday – 1 mile run
Wednesday – 3 mile walk
Thursday – 1 mile run
Friday – Rest
Saturday – 2 mile run + 1.5 mike walk
Sunday – 1 mile walk, food prep + cleaning

My training plan for this coming week consists of 4 running days! Once I get a few solid weeks on me, I’ll start adding back in weights and core workouts. I knew if I started out doing too much something would suffer (missed running sessions).

AND my amazing husband started C25K! This is huge people. He hates running! He’s made a commitment to his health though and I am so proud of him. He’s out walking now as I type this! He’s likely logged more miles than me this week!
