I am loving this!

I just got back from my speed workout, and I am just loving this!!! I have never felt so fit in my life (well, at least with respect to running). It is so fun! Today's run included:

Short jog to warm up (which I did between my apartment and the track at school)
1 mile at 9 min/mile pace
1/2 mile recovery jog
Slow jog/walk home

The best part about it is that it felt awesome! It was FREEZING but I pushed through it, I stayed on pace, I felt good, and I recovered easily when I got home. This training program is working so well! My only run left for the week is a 9 miler this weekend. I still have to throw in some yoga and some weight training, and then I'll be all set.

I hope everyone else is doing well with their workouts! Thanks for the kind words! :) Almost 5 weeks of training down... time flies!


  1. Nice job! Its a lot easier when you start seeing drastic results in your training. Keep up the good work on all your workouts! Which marathon are you planning on running?

  2. I'm running the Pittsburgh Marathon in May!
