borrowed stole the idea for the Target Practice Friday series from the ladies over at Fit.Fun.Femme. I do things a little differently, but ultimately it’s where I share my progress on my short term goals, a.k.a targets.
Marathon – I ran 18 miles for the first time last Saturday with Team Nutribullet. Woohoo! I was pretty happy with the run so hopefully all long runs continue to be like that. I also ran 9 miles and 4.5 miles making for a grand total of 31.5 miles!
Improve Pace - There were supposed to be hill repeats during my 9 mile run but my body just couldn’t do it this week. I may have to adjust a few things in my running schedule so that my hill repeats are during shorter runs.
Handstand – I tried something new this week! It turns out headstands are much easier than handstands! I was able to hold one for at least 20 seconds away from the wall. Cool beans!
Eating Clean - Gosh! My appetite has grown so much with all this running! I never would have expected to gain weight during marathon training but I have… and it’s not all muscle weight! While I am eating mostly healthy foods, I eat a lot more than I used to before this training began. And I always want a burrito baby from Chipotle after a long run. No, I don’t share it with someone else!
Some eats and coffee by the LA River after a long run.
Enjoy your weekend!
