Marathon Monday: training update

It’s Monday again. The weekends seem to go by quick these days. I did get several projects done at home though. I’ve been wanting to paint some of our furniture and finally got it done. I need one more coat on the top and a layer of wax. It’s kinda sticky right now and I’m afraid the paint will scratch off. I probably should have sanded it down a little.

I’ve had this desk for probably 13 years, but never did anything with it. It’s in Ally’s room now. I think it was my grandmother’s but she doesn’t remember having it.

Let’s get to the training update.

marathon training

Wednesday: Rest day

Thursday: 6 miles

I normally use Wednesday as a workout/running day, but lately since I’m off I’ve been using that day to unpack and get things done at the house. This week I’m planning to start running again on Wednesday.

I am officially signed up for the Michelob Ultra 13.1 in Dallas on October 25. I ran it last year and it holds my PR. I’m planning to break that this year. It’s a fairly flat course and part of it is on a path that’s not concrete, it was so nice to run on. Last year it was the Allstate 13.1, here’s the recap if you want to catch up. It was a fun race!

That’s all I’ve got!

Have you painted furniture before?

Did you race this weekend?

Did you workout today?

Happy running,
