I did it! Marathon #2 is in the bag. It was fun, tough, challenging, and painful but I’m glad I did it. My time was 4:18:50 which is a 9:50 pace. I really didn’t have a concrete time goal so I’m pleased with it; I am looking forward to taking more minutes off of the next one!
I’ll have a full recap later on this week so for now I’m just going to do my workout recap. Although, between tapering for the marathon and being sick, the workouts were pretty pitiful.
Monday: 3 mile run.
Tuesday: 150 pushups.
Wednesday: sick, sick, sick…
Thursday: 170 pushups, 4 mile run.
Saturday: Yoga – sun salutations and seated hip openers.
Sunday: Rock-n-Roll New Orleans…..26.3 freaking miles! (Yes, I managed to run an extra .10 of a mile.)
Also, last week, I finished the 100 pushup program!! This was the six week program that I attempted last Nov/Dec and ended up quitting with just two days to go. It was still incredibly challenging towards the end but I’m proud of myself for finishing. I’ve been joining Jennifer, Alex and Jacki with their #nogirlypushup challenge and I think the extra accountability really helped.
If you haven’t checked out their challenge, do so. You can will some very cool prizes! Last week, I won some socks from The Sox Box. Waaahoooo! I’m still going to continue with the pushups but I don’t think I’ll be doing 170 in a day anytime soon again.
Question: How was your weekend? Did you do anything extra special or just have a relaxing few days at home?
