Marathon Training Week 2: I REMEMBERED to Showed Up This Week

Week 2 of training for the Chicago Marathon is in the books and I'm glad to say I remembered to show up this week. Ahem.

I'm training with the most awesome running group, Get Fit Atlanta, and we're starting from scratch so my mileage is low but I know from past experience it will build - quickly.

Monday - 4.07 miles
Tuesday - 1.3 miles (I wasn't feeling well and cut my run short. Sometimes its best to listen to your body.)
Wednesday - 3.03 miles
Saturday - 3.18 miles


Week 2 Total: 11.58 miles

I do my weekday runs solo after dropping the kids at school; so I absolutely LOVE to hook up with my Get Fit Atlanta peeps on Saturday mornings for some company and fun runs.

My pace group leader, Coach Karen, had us all moving!

We did Indian Sprints - we lined up by two (there were lots of us) then the last two people in line had to sprint up to the front of the line and repeat. It was fun to work on some speed and break up the run.

Me after. Feeling great and ready to tackle the weekend.

Looking forward to Week 3 and the Warrior Dash this weekend. Getting my mind right for some mud.
