Running / Workout

The beginning of my journey to 26.2!

This weekend included a lot of fitness, food, and friends — what could be better than that?

Yesterday morning started with a big batch of these . And guess what — OMG, they were so good. I’ll let you drool at the pictures over at CNC since they were much prettier than mine, but I enjoyed four small pancakes topped with almond butter, flax seeds, and TJ’s Maple Agave syrup. Yum!

I waited a few hours to tackle a workout after my amazing breakfast but headed to the gym around noon and knocked out this “Insane Incline Treadmill Workout” (based on ) and an arm strengthening workout with supersets.

Yesterday afternoon, I headed to for church, followed by a leadership training I had to lead for our small group leaders. It went really well, but I didn’t get home until after 8:30 with one thing on my mind — food! Luckily, we had some leftover pizza that Andy’s mom brought down — homemade wheat dough pizza with lots of vegetables — it’s amazing!

I ended the evening by catching up on — which might have been the most depressing episode yet. (I don’t want to spoil it for anyone so we’ll leave it at that, but wow!) Regardless, I absolutely love the show this season! Between Kristina’s cancer diagnosis and Julia learning to parent Victor, I love the storylines this year. Anyone else?

Today started off with a 6.5 mile trail run with a friend. It was incredibly muddy, so I’m glad I wore my old shoes — they were covered in mud (as were my legs)! However, it was a beautiful trail and a great way to spend a Sunday morning!

Today was the first of my ! After looking at a lot of different plans and talking to different individuals who had completed their own marathons (a big thanks to for her help!), I developed my own plan. Here’s to training season!
