Houston Marathon Training - Week 2

Chicago Marathon training - week 13

I'm now in week 2 of my 12 week training cycle for the Houston Marathon.  This is the recap for my Houston Marathon Training - Week 2 today.

I had trouble this week keeping my hands off the snooze button. I could blame the late night Astro's games, but ultimately it comes down to me.  By the way... how about those 'Stros!    My cross-training and strength workouts really suffered. This week I need to get to it!

Over the weekend, the hubs and I went to Lake Travis with some friends for camping and so the boys could scuba dive.  We had a blast!  I'm pleased that I was able to still get in my long run and enjoy all the fun.  I had ordered a SUP to take with my on the trip, but sadly it arrived damaged and there went my well laid plans for cross-training after missing my wake-up calls.

I continued cooking and eating from the Run Fast Eat Slow cookbook.  This week I tried Giddy-Up Energy Bites and Nostrana's Pasta Salad.

  1. Sorry to hear about the damaged SUP :( I hate when you're totally looking forward to something but then it doesn't go as planned. I still think you had a great week of workouts though!

    How do you like those two recipes from the cookbook? I have the cookbook but haven't made those recipes yet!

  2. Oh, no! I hate that your SUP arrived damaged. I know you would have enjoyed that! I need to look at more recipes in that cookbook. I prefer recipes with few ingredients and few steps thus most of those recipes are out of my comfort zone. LOL. I haven't been doing much cross training either. I was cycling, but now... I'm just not motivated. Thanks for linking!

  3. It was a bummer, but I guess it was better that the delivery service noticed it was damaged rather than when I was at the lake... blowing the thing up. I like these recipes... frankly, I haven't tried one from this book I haven't liked.

  4. So far, all the recipes have been really good (and seem to yield plenty for me to take in my lunch all week).
