I'm already on my 3rd week of marathon training and things have been going great! My coach and discussed trying out higher mileage this training cycle, and so far I've really enjoyed it. We'll see how my body feels at the end of this week and my 3rd 50+ mile week :)
I made the decision to join Every Mother Counts at the New York City Half--This year I really wanted to do more. Every Mother Counts is a non-profit organization dedicated to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, every where. Did you know that 289,000 women die every year as a result of complications during pregnancy and childbirth? That's 1 woman, every two minutes. 98% of these deaths are preventable.

Tuesday: 5.12 miles/46:29:9:05 pace-- Allison and I seemed to forget how cold 3 degrees was. With the windchill, it was -10. Never. Again. I'm not sure why we thought it was a good idea to run, but we ran. I woke up late, but we met at 5:15, 3.5 miles and then headed to a strength class at 6am to thaw out.
Wednesday AM: Since I was running late yesterday, I didn't get to finish all my miles so I did them in the am while (literally) running errands around town. Luckily my watch was still in resume mode from the day before so I just picked up where I left off.
Thursday AM: 6.46 miles/56:07/8:41 pace -- Met Allison at 5am for some recovery miles and then headed to a strength class at 6am. When I got to class my friend Kristen was there! She joined our team about a month ago, but doesn't live around here. she was in town for a class.
Friday: OFF -- The Hubs and I took a drive to Windham mountain in the afternoon to check out the area and it was so nice to get out Albany for a few hours.
Saturday: 7 miles/57:40/8:14 pace -- After a day off, this run felt so great. I never run with music anymore, but I did since I was running solo
and wanted to listen to some Justin Bieber.
Sunday: 18.16 miles/2:35:02/8:32 pace -- 1st off. This was the weather.
Allison, her fiance Mike and I met at 8am to get in some miles before meeting up with the group at 10am for the Winter Series run. It was POURING rain the entire time we were out there.
