Crosstraining: Shut the front door - this girl cross-trained twice this week. Once on an "arc trainer" at the gym (some super hard contraption made to make you suffer) and a 4 mile hike with my mom and my puppy-dog.
Strength training: GET OUT. I did that too. I took an Archery Class on Saturday! (entire post to follow)
Overall outlook: Every week is getting a little easier. I am taking tiny steps towards a goal, rather than charging ahead only to fall flat on my ass (like i normally do). I won't lie, the AMAZING weather has helped. I had an 18 miler on Saturday, and i never even once felt like i would surely die. I even dragged Matt out for an 8 mile run on Sunday!
Either way, i feel good that i am getting out and moving every day, even if I'm not hitting my weekly mileage. My marathon is now 27 days away, and seeing as i just booked our hotel, shit is getting real.
My posts will be short and sweet this week (I find that amusing seeing as how i have been averaging 2 weekly posts since i started the new job) but later this week, i will be blogging from DC! My trip to advocate for Huntington's Disease is THIS WEEK! AHHHHHHHH! Also, where did that nice weather go? It's cold out today!
