Brazos Bend 50k Training - Week 3

Chicago Marathon training - week 13

This week marks the third week of my training cycle for Brazos Bend 50k.  I was back at it this week, thankful to be feeling better. This is Brazos Bend 50k Training - Week 3.

I was able to get two runs in this week, continuing with the "less is more" theme.  I also did some cross-training and a strength session.  All efforts were complimented by finishing off Rachel's Superman/Squat/Twists challenge.  I had so much fun, I signed up for the Total Body Challenge (I'm in catch-up mode).

My nutrition started out pretty good then took a nose dive on Wednesday.  You see, we had pizza day at work.  I started out well, having 2 slices at lunch... then there were leftovers and mindless eating tooK over. The next day, I was still feeling the effects - total food hangover, I didn't want to see any food or move much.

Friday afternoon I drove up to Paris, TX for the Half de Paris on Saturday.

  2. Ha! We sometimes get pizza at work...and they put all the leftovers in the break room...and I may find myself taking the "long way" to the water fountain, or the restroom, etc.....if you know what I mean LOL

  6. I've taken my re-entry into running very slowly. No halfs for me on the schedule, thank goodness! I'm looking at a couple of shorter races next month. And hoping that it doesn't snow on them. :)

    Congrats on your half!

  7. I am using the less is more approach for my running too! We have to go to baseball games most nights during the week. Talk about poor eating. Concession food. Ugh. Congrats on another half marathon. That's a great smiling picture -- which says it all. Thanks for linking!
