Today I signed up for my first half marathon of 2014 – the 26.2 with Donna in Jacksonville, FL with a few of my favorite runDisney friends! i’ve known I was doing this half for awhile but just signed up for it today :)

My BRF Brandi ran the 2014 Walt Disney World Marathon last Sunday! I wish I could have been there to cheer her on, but I was here for her every step on the way. I knew I had to get a run in, so I decided to run her last 3 miles with her virtually. :)

I was going to go to the gym after having dinner with a friend, but dinner didn’t agree with me and I was in bed by 9 that night.

After work I came home, spent some time with Guinness, and headed to the gym. I did about 20 minutes of upper body weights and then 5 miles on the stationary bike. I think I was the only one on the bike for a workout. As I looked down the line of bikes, all I saw were people leisurely peddling and playing on their cell phones. To each their own!

Last Monday, a fellow running in Virginia was tragically killed by a drunk driver during her morning run. She was a wife, mother, and runner. She was training for the Boston marathon. Saturday was the official day to run for Meg, but I did mine today. I was proud of this run, keeping my average pace under 13 minutes. Unfortunately I didn’t fuel my body properly and had a rough recovery after I was done.
Total for the week – 11 miles run, 5 miles bike
I’m off of work today for MLK day – starting the day off at the gym with a leg workout and then off to lunch and a day of shopping with my friend Katie!
How did you do for your weekly workout? What’s your favorite form of cardio aside from running?
Until next time,
