Lansing Marathon Training, Week #6 recap

Am I the only one who really doesn’t give a crap about the Super Bowl?  Maybe it’s cause I wasn’t invited anywhere to watch it, so I’m bitter?  Nope, I think it’s just cause I don’t really care about it.  I will confess, I have it on, while I blog, do my taxes and a bit of work.  Only so I’m not completely clueless when everyone is talking/tweeting about the commercials and entertainment.

But we DO love the Puppy Bowl in our house.

When’s it gonna start?!

That terrier is playing dirty!

Lansing Marathon, Week #6 recap:

After two not-so-great weeks, I finally had a great week of training.  Got in all the scheduled workouts.  Pilates returned.  Biking returned, a bit.  Weights sort of returned (just arms, but still).  AND even planks returned.  Sort of.   I did one plank.  🙂  I’m really happy with the quality of the workouts that I managed.  Work has still been crazy busy, but I’m taking it a day at a time and trying to prioritize things.  Including sleep.  I was MUCH better about getting 6.5 – 7 hours of sleep a night.


Miles run:  46.9

Pilates:  4 times!  Woot!

Weights: 1 time!  Woot!  (Just arms, but still)

Biking:  70 minutes!  Woot!
