  • I’m now 3 weeks from the California International Marathon (as of Nov. 12).  In addition, I also have a 10K in 1.5weeks (on Thanksgiving)
  • Check out my half marathon race recap from Saturday! I PR’ed And I also explained what things I think helped me improve my race time by 8minutes over this past year.
  • My goals are honestly  just to run my best in each upcoming race.  I am going to train to hopefully do a sub-40min 10K and a 3:15 full (or better of course!).
  • I try to include some sort of cross training 5-6days a week – either lifting weights or an insanity (plyo/core/HIIT) Workout
  •  I working with my running coach Susan – she is also doing the same marathon!  You can read more about my training plan from her in my Week 1 post here

  1. Absolutely love your blog and story 🙂

    Got two questions:
    1 …. Did you ever lift directly after your long runs?
    2….. Did you ever lift DAY BEFORE your long run days?

    Did you feel any benefit or hindrance from any of the above?
    My longer runs are usually Saturday, and would love to add an extra lift, so wondering where would be best. I guess you’re the best person to ask!

    1. Thanks! I never lifted the day before my long runs, but I did sometimes lift the afternoon of the long runs. I did full body lifts (so they included Upper and lower)… I think you could also sneak a lift in the day before if you did arms/upper body.
