MWM 16

After 7 months without doing My Weekly Mileage I decided to come back and share with you my experiences while training for my 6th marathon.

Since I last posted on MWM a lot has happened… We went to Panama and Colombia to visit my family, we got a dog (my sweet little coco Deen),I became a lululemon ambassador, I’ve ran a few half marathons and got a new PR in that distance and I also completed my second Half Ironman.

Last week was a good one… I started by training hard for my next big race and then we decided to go to Albany to visit Bobby’s daddy before the holidays.

I absolutely love going there! The drive is full of cotton fields and tiny little towns that make me feel like I’m on a movie set. We visited only for two nights but we had the best time! We ran errands, went out to eat and made endless fires with pinecones to keep the house warm. I love spending time with Bobby’s dad and his wife…

Last week, as almost every week around here, was pretty busy…

On Tuesday we had the opportunity to go support the YMCA of Coastal Georgia by being the judges of a cookie competition (what a tough job 😉 ) We learned a lot about the organization and hopefully we’ll be helping them a little bit more with their kid’s nutrition system.

Hi!!! I haven’t been around for about two weeks so I’ll be posting double workouts around here…

Well, these days have been very emotional for me. It may sound stupid but the fact that I couldn’t run frustrated me big time. I finally went to the doctor and he told me I could run slowly and short distances so I’m feeling better!

Another recovery week is behind me… But now it seems that I’ll have a full month of recovery instead of just a couple of weeks.

On Monday I went for an easy 7 mile run and I felt fine but when I tried to do the same on Tuesday I ended up walking back home. The pain on the outside of my right knee was so intense that I couldn’t even jog. I iced it, used the foam roller and three days later, when the pain was gone, I tried to go again but the same thing happened.

I can’t believe all the hard work is behind me and that I just have 5 days to go until race day!

This week was pretty similar than the past ones: work with clients, dinner with friends, training and no wine drinking … yes, NO drinking! This time I decided I was going to cut alcoholic drinks 2 weeks before race day and I’ve been doing good… I just cheated on Saturday at a Halloween party with one beer!
