NYC Marathon Training | Week 2 of 16

2 weeks down, 14 to go!

It was another good week of training. I took Monday off - no running, no classes - to let my body recover from Sunday’s long run.

I subbed a super steamy outdoor Hi Lo HIIT class for Dana then taught Low Impact Aerobics on Tuesday morning. In the afternoon, I headed out for 4 miles on tired legs but took it easy and only stopped once 2.25 miles in to take a pic of some pretty lilies. As I was driving home, Craig texted me to stop by Naukabout because their slushy machine was up and running and I needed to try their new hard seltzer “sloshies.” SO GOOD.

I was really sore waking up the next morning and that soreness continued the rest of the week. I ran almost the same 4 mile loop again after work on Wednesday - this time a lot more stops in the last 2 miles.

Friday was the hottest day of the summer. I waited until about 6pm to get in my run. Another 4 miler. This time I ran around the neighborhood but I didn’t stop once! This is the only 2nd time I’ve accomplished this since my surgery. Our new outdoor shower sure felt nice after this week of very sweaty running. On all these hot runs, I keep reminding myself how good fall running will feel if I can get through these summer months.

Sunday morning was GLORIOUS. 64 degrees, low humidity, slight breeze. Amazing. I headed to Falmouth for my 12 miler. I felt great for the most part. My usual hip pain started around the half way point. Then about mile 9 I started to get bored. Not tired or out of breath, just bored. I was ready to be done. I was already ready to go to Naukabout for another sloshie. Perfect post-run beverage. I made it back to my parents house and relaxed for a bit before going to Naukabout with Craig. We spent the rest of the afternoon at the beach and stopped for waffle cones at Somerset Creamery on the way home. Great day.
