Weekend Away and Staying on Schedule!

Hello again! Thanks to everyone for their support! It's feels great to know that there are people out there cheering me on!

My husband and I got away for the weekend, but prior to our leaving, we ran on Friday morning. Since I got a Charlie Horse during my last session, I decided to cut back to week one training. I woke up early, had a good breakfast, sat around a couple hours, then hit the track. It was apparently the perfect amount of fuel for the run, because I actually felt good after we were done! There was a minute amount of soreness in my knees over the weekend, but it wasn't enough to slow me down.

I also ran today (So I'd like to give myself kudos for sticking to our schedule even though we were away!) It was raining a little too hard for my taste, so I went to the gym to spend some time on the treadmill...let me tell you that running outside on a track, and running on a treadmill feel COMPLETELY different. I pushed myself back up to the week two training, but hated the way I could feel every little step on the treadmill. I felt it WAY too much in my knees so I'm not sure I'll ever do that again! If the weather's bad, I'll either just suck it up and go out anyway, or I'll re-adjust my training days. I REALLY didn't like running on the treadmill!!!

My next training day is Wednesday...keep your fingers crossed for good weather!


  1. You're doing awesome babe, keep it up!!

  2. Great job staying on track out of your routine life. :) Well Done!! Yes I found running on the treadmill is way different than on a track or pavement. I prefer the track too but did get used to treadmill running at one point.

  3. I hate the dreadmill! hope you got outside!

  4. Thanks you guys! The 'Dreadmill" is quite an appropriate name! I'll have to remember that one!
