Drop It Like It’s Hot

Yesterday Rob and I did 6 Miles Easy on the treadmill at the gym and lifted weights. I did Lower Body and Ab Strengthening. I spent the rest of the night resting. We watched Food Matters, and I can definitely say I’m motivated to get more raw fruits and veggies in my diet and get consistent on taking my vitamins.

Today Rob worked on lowering our Mini Cooper with some new springs that we got from Ryan. Gotta drop it like it’s hot. 😉

It was so mild and gorgeous out today, even with  storm that moved in later in the evening. I ran 10 Miles out in the hood. My legs felt stale, but that’s okay, I guess I’m still recovering.

I got my confirmation from Boston Marathon today that my entry has been processed! Yay!!

Here is how the week ended  up.

M: Rest

T: 5 Miles Easy (Treadmill, 1% Incline, 41:12, 8:15 Pace)

F: 5 Miles Easy (Treadmill, 1% Incline, 39:14, 7:51 Pace)

Su: 10 Miles Easy (‘Hood, 1:19:00, 7:54 Pace)

  1. Get it girl! I am running my first 15k on Sunday! How many miles should I run this week to prep for it? Not sure if I will make it 1:08, but I will try! 😉


    1. Hey Jamie! Since I don’t know the specifics of your training I can’t comment to the mileage, but I can tell you in general I would do a tempo run Tuesday then I would make my other miles easy and then Saturday I would do 3-4 Miles Easy with 6 x 100 Meter Strides (and walk recoveries in between) to get my legs woke up. 1 Mile warm up on race day about 20 mins out from start time, and then 50 meter strides 5 mins before race start. Good luck!!! Can’t wait to hear all about how it goes!
