Dear Runner Lovers,
I am so super excited for Fall 2016! Now that I am all settled in for my fall semester, there will be plenty of posts every week! My goal is to have a new interview every two weeks, and I will start posting about my running workouts every other day! I'm running some very beautiful trails lately!
Officially, I am going to be running in the Mount Desert Marathon this October in Bar Harbor Maine, near Acadia!!! I have never been so excited, thrilled and so looking forward to running 26.2 miles. Running by the ocean, yay!!
Still looking for a half marathon to throw in there, but something is sure to pop up!
It was so funny scheduling my GRE date and marathon date this fall.... hahah, harder than I thought it would be! Organization is so huge for me right now, I literally write down every half hour of my day in my agenda. I would be so lost without my agenda! Here's what my rest of running for the week roughly looks like:
- Thursday: 10 miles and abs
- Friday: 10 miles and abs
- Saturday: 15-18 miles
- Sunday: 20 miles
- Monday: Rest Day- cross train/ swimming
- Tuesday: 3 mile warm up, 4 mile Half-Marathon Pace, 3 Mile Cool Down + abs
- Wednesday: 5 in the morning and 5 at night +abs
Fingers crossed it all works out that way!
Sometimes, I need to split up my mileage throughout the day to get it all in around working, studying and classes. Ten miles is my favorite distance to run at school, because I run four miles down to a bridge overlooking a lake with mountains and then the cross country trail twice. Its perfect! Hahah, I just need to watch out for those roots on the trail that jump out of nowhere!
What's your favorite distance? How's marathon training going?
I hope everyone has an absolutely amazing day!
That Pretty Runner
