A Tweet from Meb + Wineglass Marathon Training (Week 8)

1 Aug

First off, I freaked out momentarily yesterday.

Meb was doing a twitter chat and I figured, what the hell, lets ask a question and see if he responds.

Imagine my surprise when he actually did!!! With great advice too.

If that’s not motivation, I don’t know what is.

And yes, I’m aware Wineglass isn’t *technically* my first marathon since I did the Goofy Challenge in 2013, however, this is the first time I am training specifically for the 26.2 mile journey and am focusing on finishing strong.


I can’t believe how quickly this training cycle is going. I’m going to be at the start line in a little over 2 months! I’m still loving Run Faster, Run Less – and I feel like I am definitely getting stronger mentally and physically.

Saturday – PA Grand Canyon Half Marathon!!! (Recap soon, promise)

Sunday – Complete and total rest day. It. was. glorious.

Monday – 4.5 miles of speedwork (800s)

Tuesday – BodyAttack* + BodyPump*

Wednesday – 8 mile tempo run (1 miles warm up, 6 at pace, 1 cool down), I had RPM scheduled for the morning but woke up with some… womanly woes… so I opted to stay in bed. So glad I did – my run wouldn’t have been as strong if I had forced RPM, I am sure of it.

Thursday – BodyAttack + BodyPump

Friday – P90x3 Yoga

Total Miles: 25.6

*Links for more information: BodyPump, BodyAttack

This weekend I’ve got a 10 mile long run (guess it’s a cut back week?) planned, and will probably do 2 hours at the gym on Sunday – either BodyPump + RPM or BodyPump + BodyFlow, depending on how I’m feeling.

Have a great weekend!!!
