Training Updates - Mid October

It’s been a while since my last training update because there’s nothing that interesting to report. We’ve had a LOT of rain in Atlanta the past 2 weeks. With M on 4 day trips this month that means most of my training has been relegated to the elliptical. I’ve done the exact same workouts for the past 2 weeks. I’ve tried to make the most of my runs the few days I was able to make it out.

Monday: off
Tuesday: 8 mile run (8:10/mi pace)
Wednesday: 4 mile run (7:40/mi pace), 30 min elliptical
Thursday: pilates dvd, light weights
Friday: off
Saturday: 70 mins elliptical
Sunday: 70 min elliptical

Baby girl and I are headed to NJ this weekend for a quick trip to see my parents. Grandma can’t wait take her little sweet pea to the pumpkin patch. She’s been talking about it for weeks.

The half-marathon is next weekend. Nope, haven’t done a run over 8 miles in preparation. I’m not worried about finishing, but all bets are off as to how fast (slow) I’m going to run. My overall weekly mileage has been light, so I don’t want to go in with any expectations. I’m just going to have fun with it. It’s all about setting new benchmarks at this point.

If you take a look over at the sidebar, I’ve updated it some pictures from our trip to Amicalola Falls this past week...

  2. Aw, thanks :) They get a lot more Florida flying in the winter. I'll be on the lookout for a long MCO overnight on his schedule...maybe we can get together then too. Could you handle the cuteness if we got both our kiddos in the room together? lol
