Training Day… Week 15


April 6, 2010

The end is in sight and I am really looking forward to it…I’m not sure how much more of this my body can handle–haha!! Let me cross that finish line and I promise not to complain any more until I decide whether or not to do this next year, although I’m already leaning towards YES! 
With last week’s 9-miler behind me, I am focusing on gaining my momentum back and really getting my mind right! I am so excited for April 24th and even more excited that my friends and family will be there for me to celebrate–and have lots of food and adult beverages afterwards =)
Here is my training schedule this week:
Monday: Rest Day
Tuesday: I ran 3 miles this morning at a 9:30 pace and did arms/abs/legs/stretches
Wednesday: workout DVD–I just bought Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred! I’ve heard only rave reviews about this puppy and I am looking forward to a relationship with crazy trainer herself… just need to add some different workouts into my mix before the beach!
Thursday: Run 4 miles at a 9:45 pace with stretches and abs
Friday: workout DVD
Saturday: Long Run–6 miles at a 10:00 pace
Sunday: Rest Day
TOTAL: 13 miles
*and yes, for those wondering, this means my 10 mile run will be next week–can you hear how scared I am??

    My 9 mile run was the hardest of my training program. Something about it was so mentally challenging. The next Saturday my 10 miles run was a piece of cake. Hopefully it will be the same for you!

  2. Amoree says:

    I'm getting back into running slowly but surely & my first run kicked my butt!! Keep up the good work!!

  3. Christy says:

    Good luck! My 10 mile is coming up too! I found your blog through another one and love it! Good luck with your training!

  4. Christin says:

    Hey! Tale of a Southern Belle said you're running the Nashville half. I will be, too!

    Oh and I did Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred last year. It kicked my booty!

  5. Sarah says:

    Ooh…I've been eyeing that video for a few weeks now. Please post letting me know if it's worth the money!

  6. Marian says:

    You can do it pretty lady!! So proud.

  7. Brittany says:

    Congrats on making it to week 15! I do the shred and love it. I'm sure you will too 🙂

  8. Amanda says:

    I just gave your blog a shout-out. check it out… http://amanda-brown.blogspot.com/

    you can SO do it!!! once you hit 8 (or at least for me) you just cruise. everything starts to go numb 🙂 not sure if that's a good or bad thing, but it makes the last 2 go by quicker for sure! good luck!!!

  10. Jenn Wade says:

    You'll kill that 10 miles, girl! 🙂 You'll do great – you're so ready.

    Thanks for all of your words of encouragement to me – it means a lot!!

  11. Kyle says:

    We are on a similar training schedule. I am excited for my training to be over so I can also time some other forms of working out – Crossfit, bootcamp.

    I did The Shred last year. Great video!

  12. Iva says:

    no fear!! NONE!!!! you can totally do this!!! ok?! OK!!!!


  14. Julia says:

    30 Day Shred is my hero. It changed my life because it gave me a way to stay in halfway decent shape while being able to take a few days of the week in which I only have to work out for 20 short minutes!
