Weekly Workouts and Updates 7/25-7/31

Before I recap my weekly workouts and updates, I want to give a shout out to Coach Laura, who has been an incredible source of information and support throughout the past month and a half I spent beginning my marathon training plan. If you’ve been reading along this summer, you’ll know that I began having some hip pain in early July that turned into a full-on injury, and as a result, I’ve decided to focus on recovery and will be deferring my entry to the New York City Marathon until next year.

WIAW #62

This week’s WIAW features my usual weekend eats when I’m spending a summer weekend at my parents’ house in Connecticut, as I did this past weekend. It’s typically an apple and peanut butter, an apple and homemade muffin, or apple and Larabar before my Saturday long run. Usually in the summer I will eat a lighter snack because the heat makes it harder for me to digest before getting out there, but as I get into marathon training I’m trying to figure out the right balance of fueling well without it feeling like too much. This time it was half an apple and two Apple Cinnamon Flax Muffin Bites with peanut butter.

Weekly Workouts and Memorial Day Weekend

I’ve always loved celebrating Memorial Day. It isn’t the biggest holiday, but it does mark the start of summer in more ways than one. This year, the weather warmed up rapidly, so it seems like it really crept up on us, but all that meant is earlier morning runs and lots of ice cream to cool off. I’ll recap my weekly workouts first and then get to Memorial Day weekend.
