Monday night review

Well, the Nor'easter is here!! Cold, windy and ICY!!

Im in a recovery week this week and Im soooo going to enjoy it!!

You can Click here to see all the pics from Its a Wonderful 5K. It was cool. MTV was there. A girl wanted to me "MADE" into a 5K Runner. I didn't realize I was sitting behind the camera, fixing my race bib, blowing my nose, so yeah I hope they cut that part out!!

Even though I didn't PR, I thought about the race yesterday. Here are my thoughts

1. My nutrition before hand was rock solid, eating well balance meal 2 hours before my run. 15 min before a gel, between that water water water

2. I went out WAAAYYY too fast for me. I get caught up in the moment. I need to hold my pace back. I started the first 1/2 mile at a 6:30 pace. First mile 8 min..second 9:08, third + .1 9:26. Yeah not a negative split again!

3. I red lined. I don't like feeling that way-

4. My Garmin for some reason stopped on its own. This is the second time this weekend...hmmmm

5. I felt like I was going to throw up the last half of the race..

6. I love people yelling to me nice shoes!! I have the new PINK Saucony Kinvaras!

Heres the numbers for last week:

Swim: 5,000 meters - 1 hour 5 min
Bike: 4 hours 30 min- Trainer + spinning
Run: 18.1 miles- 3hours 6 min 8 sec
Strength- 1hour 30 min

TOTAL! 11:01:08 (thats with skipping a day because of sickness!!)

Happy training


  1. Great week of training! I hope the Nor'eastern doesn't hang around too long!

  2. Great numbers! Very impressive, especially with all the snow and sick going on.

  3. Nice job with your training! I am sooo jealous!

  4. Good work. There is a reason your race instructions have been "have at it"..... and you are learning why!

  5. Solid race! And kudos for working on your nutrition! It's not easy this time of year!

  6. I'm so going to look for your blowing your nose on MTV! :)

    Congrats on a great week!

  7. Yeah Mary!! I can see now!! Patience...Patience..LOL!
