Getting closer!! And the weather is starting to break! But it’s Buffalo so I’m not in the clear until late April 😂 . #marathontraining #myfirstmarathon #runningfurther2018 #buffalomarathon2018

Cabin fever got the best of me and really, there was no excuse not to run outside. I had been telling people that it’s “not the cold, it’s the icy sidewalks” that kept me on the treadmill. No one wants a slip and fall. But our snow is gone-zo and it’s in the upper 20s! Bottom line: it felt great to get out. Time to start incorporating outdoor runs whenever possible! . 3.8 mile recovery run 8:33 pace . #marathontraining #optoutside #myfirstmarathon #springiscoming #buffalomarathon2018 #runningfurther2018

I woke up and immediately felt the lifting work I did yesterday! Amazing how adding just a little weight can make such a difference. Made sure to do a proper warmup and extra long stretch session after today’s speed workout (here’s the view from my foot 😂). Took about a half mile to get the lead out of my hamstrings but I finished strong with some strides! . 8 push-ups 50 yoga bicycles . 1 mile at 8:20 pace 2x800m at 8:00 pace 1 mile at 8:20 pace 4x100m strides at 7:30 pace 1x200m stride at 7:30 pace (just for fun 😉) #marathontraining #speed #strength #stretch #recover #myfirstmarathon #buffalomarathon2018 #runningfurther2018

Worked the power muscles today. A little plyo, some upper body lifting, deadlifts, snatches...phew! Went through one of the #NikePlus workouts for the first time in a while. Felt good! . #strengthday #marathontraining #lifting #myfirstmarathon #runningfurther2018 #buffalomarathon2018

Back on track today...literally! Hit the indoor track for some 200m repeats. I’ve also decided that I’m sick of all of my strength coming from my legs. I’m going to start doing push-ups every day. As many as possible with good (ish) form. Adding yoga bicycles for good measure. . Shin felt great today too! This was my first run since Saturday’s race. I’m now armed with compression sleeves...just in case. . 200m x 25 Average pace - 8:12 mile 8 clean pushups 50 yoga bicycles . #marathontraining #myfirstmarathon #speedwork #buffalomarathon2018 #runningfurther2018

Away for #ValentinesDay and reliving this AMAZING dinner from last night. Not normally a red meat eater but when you’re at a steakhouse, you get the Filet Mignon. . Made sure to get in a solid yoga core workout this morning to combat all that fat 😉 . #goodeats #marathontraining #treatyoself #myfirstmarathon #stillicingthatleg #buffalomarathon2018 #runningfurther2018

Ugh, stupid shin. Muscles on the outside of my right shin are still pretty tender. That’s what I get for going from treadmilling to a ten mile road race. Ice, rest and non impact exercise for a couple more days, I think! . #recovery #bike #trainsmart #selfcare #marathontraining #myfirstmarathon #buffalomarathon2018 #runningfurther2018

Woop woop! Got a little taste of race day excitement yesterday and it was the perfect way to stay focused and learn what I need to work on for when I get to the starting line in May. . Today is a day of rest. Icing the sore spots. Stretching. Cleaning. Relaxing. . #selfcare #trainsmart #marathontraining #myfirstmarathon #buffalomarathon2018 #runningfurther2018

That last hill tho. When I saw the photog, I honestly thought this picture was going to be way less flattering. #lockport10 #marathontraining #myfirstmarathon #lasthillstruggle #runningfurther2018

Now that was a long training run with an exclamation point! The #lockport10 definitely lived up to its name was New York’s roughest road race. Huge props to the crews and volunteers that had the streets clean and kept us safe on the route. . Considering that was my first distance run off a treadmill since thanksgiving, I’m thrilled with how it went. Walked for a bit in mile 4 to avoid a (ahem) minor disaster. Found a bathroom at mile 5 and was back in running business 😉. #marathontraining #myfirstmarathon #buffalomarathon2018 #runningfurther2018

Packed and ready for tomorrow’s race! When you work late, early prep is a necessity. Albus approves. #lockport10 #raceday #marathontraining #albusthecat #myfirstmarathon #buffalomarathon2018 #runningfurther2018

Strength day! 100 yoga bicycles (here’s 25 of them...trust me), pull ups, chin ups and a few other upper body exercises. Kept it short today because tomorrow is a #raceday!!! . Made a last minute decision to sign up for the #lockport10. There will be fresh snow but it doesn’t look too cold. I can push through 90 minutes of that right? RIGHT!? . #marathontraining #strengthday #trainsmart #myfirstmarathon #buffalomarathon2018 #runningfurther2018
