marathon monday: training schedule

September 11, 2017

As I mentioned last week, I’ll be tracking my marathon training progress weekly, every Monday (which let’s face it, is the hardest day to work out of the week, AM I RIGHT?). Last week, I introduced you to Lacee, who will be overseeing and helping me train for race day (which is SO CLOSE ALREADY). Not only is she one of the strongest women I know (literally, she is), but she has this uncanny ability to trick you into thinking your workout is going to be fun.

“Oh, what’s that, Lacee? Burpees, followed by pull-ups? I thought you’d never ask!”

I blame her unassuming, bubbly smile. And the fact she usually throws on a little gangsta rap before class starts, so you basically feel like a bad ass at 8am. And who doesn’t like feeling like a bad ass at 8am?

Anyway, I digress. On with the running schedule.  For context, up until this point, I’ve been averaging anywhere to 3-5 miles every other day, sprinkling in cross  training sessions over at Fhitting Room about once a week.

If you happen to be in the New York area and want to take a Fhitting Room class together, now you know my schedule! I typically sign up for the 8am class on both Mondays and Thursdays, so shoot me an email if you’re thinking about joining! Also, feel free to nag me on social if it looks like I’m not keeping up with my schedule. Sometimes the best way to stick to a routine is to invite your friends (and subsequently your social media followers), to keep you accountable.
