Delaware marathon Week 13

M: 4.3 on treadmill because baby
T: 6.3 outside, fartlek-ish
W: 2 on treadmill but then baby monitor crashed. HIIT instead
T: 6.5 outside
F: 3 on treadmill because baby
Sa: 19.1 outside
Su: off!

Summary: 41+, mix of inside and outside. This long run was hard, and I'm not sure why because it wasn't after a particularly hard week. Zero consistency this week. Oh well. 50 days until the marathon!!!

Delaware marathon week 11

Halfway done?! This training is flying by.

M: off
T: 5.3 outside
W: 6.1 inside
T: HIIT
F: 4.5 inside, fartleks sorta
Sa: 12.5 on treadmill because it was unpleasant (cold and windy) outside and very pleasant (netflix and snacks) inside.
Su: off!

Summary: I was trying to get back to my previous schedule now that Nick is back to his normal schedule, plus spring 5ks are starting and with them opportunities to work a short race into a long run. Win win!  28 and change for a stepback week.

Delaware Marathon week 9

M: 6.1 on treadmill because HALLELUJAH THE BABY NAPPED!
T: 6.3 inside because Nick got the day off!
W: 5 miles. Treadmill? I have no memory but I think I ran.
T: HIIT
F: 6.3 on treadmill split into many sections because... baby
Sa: 5.3 on treadmill because... baby
Su: 17 outside

Summary: I am so bad with unpredictability. I wanted to do my long run on Saturday but when the weather and D and Nick's work schedule didn't cooperate, I just wedged in a run and then felt bad about how short it was. I attempted the next day while D hung with my parents. Success! The run felt great! I think that brings my total for this week to 46? Oops.

Delaware marathon week 8

M: 4.7 inside
T: 5.1 outside, quarter mile fartleks for miles 2-5.
W: 5.2 outside with stroller and lots of wind.
T: babywearing fitness and a little HIIT
F: 5.3 outside with stroller
Sa: 9 with stroller
Su: rest

Summary: 29, almost all outside.

This week D really stopped napping. He had been toying with it here and there and this week he really committed to it. Yay. The super cool thing about parenthood is that once you have any tiny bit of comfort or routine, things fall apart. Oh, you've got a groove where you exercise, shower, do housework, cook, and generally keep things from going to hell in the house? Cool story, I'm going to ruin that for you, mama.

Sigh.

So. Back to the drawing board with how to fit training into my life. D doesn't love the stroller and it's currently a bit cold for him but in a few weeks that should improve. In the meantime I'll just run as much as possible with him and hope for the best come May!
