This coming week

I officially have my whole house unpacked! That means I can focus more on writing posts again!Β 

Again, I am sorry about the huge absence of posting. I am a sever type A personality and neat freak, so I had to spend every free minute unpacking this past week.

It is 10:17 pm as I write this (which is way past my bedtime) but I really wanted to get a short post in before bed.

I spent my day putting away the last few boxes and then mopping the floors. My body is exhausted from going up and down two flights of stairs all weekends, but it was a great workout without really trying to workout.

I have my workout room semi-done, but I still need to have Morgan build some shelving. Once it’s done I’ll take a picture πŸ™‚

As I was moving boxes and unpacking this weekend I thought about future posts and what might be helpful.

I’ve had readers email me about what to do if they can’t get a run in outside due to snow and what to do if they don’t have a treadmill. I will post some at home workouts that I do this coming week that may help you if you find yourself stuck inside due to inclement weather.

Like always, if there is a specific topic you would like me to go over in regards to running or any other form of working out Β just let me know!

Have a great Sunday night!

  1. Hi, Courtney! So happy to hear the move is going well and I can’t wait to see your workout room πŸ™‚

    I have a question: I will be doing a half marathon on March 22. Training has gone well and I am really enjoying the weekly mileage/the process of training for a half. It’s challenging without being to taxing on my body. I would like to do another half on May 17; that’s a little under 8 weeks between races. A) Do you think this would be ok for be to do without risking injury? and B) What sort of training program should I follow to maintain my stamina without burning out? I should mention I am not aiming to get faster between races, nor will I be focusing on speed during the race. For now I just want to finish healthy and with no injuries.

    Thanks!

    • Hi! Sorry for the delay in response! I am finally getting internet today πŸ™‚

      I see no issue with running half marathons that close. The way I like to look at it is if you were marathon training you would doing 13+ miles each weekend, so I think you’re okay. As long as you feel good, I wouldn’t worry.

      As far as continuing to train to keep up your endurance- I would continue the last week of your current plan until the half, since it is already setting you up for a half. Maybe vary your long runs in between though. Aiming for 11-13 miles, just to prevent boredom.

      Also make sure you are getting plenty of rest time and extra sleep on your long run days. Are you strength training as well?

      If you have any other questions just ask πŸ™‚
