Marathon Training Week 1

Hi everyone!

Hope you all are having a lovely long weekend and oh yes, Happy Memorial Day!

Today kicks off Runner’s World Summer Running Streak. All you have to do is run at least 1 mile from now until July 4th (that’s 38 consecutive days). It’s the perfect opportunity to help you get back into running or just to have a little goal for the day. You can report your progress at Runner’s World in the comments section or on twitter #RWRunStreak. Actually streaking while doing the #RWRunStreak is optional but would be interesting!

I just wanted to do a quick little post today. I thought it might be fun to document my marathon training with a weekly vlog update.

FYI – I added a new tab at the top of the page for WORKOUTS. You’ll find all my treadmill runs, strength training, Tabata, yoga, and stretching workouts in one handy area. Check it out for some sweat-fest inspiration!

Enjoy the day!

  1. Are you doing the running streak? I think I’m going to, just by sticking to my normal running routine and adding an easy 1 mile on the days I don’t normally run. Should be a fun challenge. Congrats on getting back into training! And great vlog- I think speed work should always feel hard, so no worries there! 🙂

  2. Sounds like you had a great first week. Last week was my first marathon training week too. I tried Gu for the first time and it actually gave me the energy to have a strong finish on my long run. It wasn’t appetizing, but I didn’t have to spend five minutes trying to chew it like the blocks. Love the workouts page.
