Training Weeks 1 & 2: Sick And A Snake

Since I was sick last week I never did a week 1 training update! So here is week 1 and 2. Nothing special.

Sunday: 7 Miles
Monday: 6 Miles
Tuesday: 5 Miles
Wednesday: 9 Miles and Vball game
Thursday: 5 Miles
Friday: 4 Miles and 30 mins elliptical
Saturday: Rest Day

Week 1 Total Milage: 36 miles

So here is week 2.

Sunday: The Perfect 10 Miler, 11 miles total, day 1 of being sick with death bug.
Monday and Tuesday: Rest
Wednesday: Vball game and more rest
Thursday and Friday: More rest, a little bit of conditioning but getting super itchy to run
Saturday: nice easy 5 miles
Sunday: 15 miles, still at an easy pace

Week 2 total mileage: 31 miles

I hate low mileage, anything under 40 miles a week and I just don’t feel right. Hopefully I can get the mileage up this week, as long as I feel ok. Shouldn’t be too hard since I have the Buckeye Half Marathon on Sunday!

Hopefully, I won’t see this guy down there since he scared the bejezus out of me yesterday on my 15 miler.

Snakey Snakey

Can you believe that mo-fo hissed at me? Oh no he didn’t!

 I may have jumped 10 feet in the air and peed…just a little.

What is the scariest thing you have seen on a run? I’ve seen lots of deer and squirrels (both of which scare me), I’ve seen turtle road kill and now a giant snake.

  1. Your mileage is definitely impressive to me! I keep forgetting you have done several marathons. I never seem to get past 20-25 miles per week without getting some kind of injury.

    I’m in no way prepared to tackle a full yet.

    But you are doing great!

  2. I have a tie: a coyote and a guy that was creeping on me during a track workout that ended up showing me he was in women’s underwear. Hahaaa can’t decide which is more scary!!
