NYC Marathon Training | Week 1 of 16

1 week down, 15 to go!

My first week of NYC Marathon training went well. I am most likely going to be taking Mondays off from running however it didn’t feel right to NOT run this week on Monday—the first official day of training! Besides, Craig and I tried to paddle board but by the time I got out of work it was way too windy so he was nice enough to distract Reggie while I snuck out the door for a 4 miler.

I ran 5 miles after work around New Seabury on Wednesday then an easy 3 on Friday. I brought along Reggie but it was way too hot and she only made it a mile and a half.

Sunday is long run day and it was the first Sunday in weeks we saw the sun! Instead of long running in Falmouth, I did an old out and back route through Cotuit so I could eliminate travel time and get to the beach sooner. 

I struggled on this 10 miler. The last 3.5 miles were rough. It was sunny and hot. I also forgot how hilly Cotuit is but I made it. Craig drove by me on his motorcycle when I was about 3/4 mile from home. He was out picking up post-run breakfast sandwiches from Cafe Chew. I was done with 10 by 10am and on the beach by noon. Happy Jen.

Other highlights:

  • I golfed 9 holes on Thursday with Craig and my parents! It was my dad’s first time out since his hand surgeries my first of the year. It wasn’t pretty but we had a good time.
