Week 2 Marathon Training

Week 2 of marathon - completed, successfully!!! So far, I am doing awesome!! I have kept up with all my runs, and actually did some cross training. I have to say, I have diversified my cross training. Below is my schedule from last week -

Monday - 30 Day Shred Level 1 and 40 mins of basketball with my son
Tues - Rest (normally a run day, but knew I was running Wednesday)
Wednesday - 4.2 mile run (2.1 of it was the Torch Run for Special Olympics)
Thursday - 3.29 mile run
Friday - 30 mins of basketball with my son
Saturday - 4 mile walk (March of Dimes Walk For Babies), 30 mins basketball with my son
Sunday - 9 mile run

So, all in all, a very successful week. I had only one rest day, and did a lot of different types of cross training.

Beginning May 1st, I am participating in a few challenges. One is a DVD challenge, where I will do 30 Day Shred every day for the entire month. The second is a yoga challenge at Run to the Finish, and thanks to Tara at Balancing Healthy Body, Mind and Soul I have a year's subscription to to help make that happen. Lastly, I am participating in a fitness challenge at Balancing Healthy Body, Mind and Soul. I invite you all to join me in any or all of the above.

So bring on week 3 of training. I am so ready!!!!!!


  1. great training! can't wait for the challenge to start tomorrow!

    1. me neither, Amanda - I jumped right in, with a shorter yoga workout. I will do a longer one tomorrow I promise :)

  2. I'm looking forward to the yoga challenge. I have two free weeks to use My Yoga Online and a pass to take 20 classes at a local yoga studio so I'm hoping to do well with this challenge.

    Great job with week two!

    1. awesome, Suz!!! I lucked out winning the free year. I tried it this morning, and LOVED it!!!
