The Weekly Chase

After a week hiatus from blogging, the *chasing* and's back to real life.

Transition back has not been as easy as I thought!  The five hour time difference has me so messed up.  It was easy to get on Maui time, but being back in Texas?  I'm *still* on Maui time!

I did manage to get in a little bit of running last week - anywhere from 2 to 3.5 miles for a whopping total of 8 miles!  Pretty pathetic for me, but it was still a really nice break.  I even got my brand new fiancee to go running with me!

Marathon training is coming up quick and I'm starting to get a bit anxious that I won't be able to keep up with my plan, which has me running long at 8 miles the first week.  I don't think I've ran that far in over 2 months.  Needless to say, I'm feeling compelled to start ramping up to that.'s time to get back on track!

I plan on going to barre everyday this week.

My running plan looks a bit like this:

Monday - 5-6 miles (probably back to the gym as the humidity has been out of control here!)

Tuesday - 3-4 miles

Wednesday - 5 miles with my MRTT friends - we have started having weekly "moonlight" runs and they are turning out to be really fun!

from our inaugural moonlight run

Thursday - no run

Friday - 3 miles

Saturday - 6 miles

Sunday - no run

Anyone else doing a fall marathon?  Have you started training yet?


  1. Jealous! I always try to get Matt to go running with me... running is definitely not on his radar! Although, he did say that if I run my half marathon this fall he will do a 5K! I'm holding him to it!

    You'll get back on track in no time... once that Texas time catches back up to ya! :)

  2. I hear ya on the jetlag! It took me about a week to get back to Alabama time from California time! Good luck with the training this week!
