It was extremely cold outside and it was great to get a good workout in on a 300 meter track.

Friday: Run 

6.6 miles (8:16)

push ups, planks

I recently started adding Fridays as an easy run day.  I still have no mileage plan, just running at random.

Saturday: Long run

13 miles (8:25)

It was snowy and icy at times.  The first few miles were in the 9’s-10’s due to the snow.  I was happy to get it in outside though.

push ups, planks

Sunday: Run

1 hr walk

I meant to run but it was snowing all day and I opted for an easy treadmill walk instead.

I had less miles this week since I skipped the 10 miles I was planning on Sunday.  I did have some good quality runs though.

Total miles: 43

I am a dedicated runner and classical musician. I am currently chasing a sub-3 hour marathon (3:00:38 PR). I often feel like the underdog going up against "serious" runners-I took up running after college, I do not have a typical "runner's body type", and I am mostly self-coached. I travel a lot to perform with different orchestras and run when I can, where I can. I love to (over) eat and that is my number one motivation for running! Follow me as I chase my goals!
