Fitness Friday–12/13

Friday the 13th? Creepy.

It’s already mid-December. I cannot believe how fast this month is flying by. Slow down, December…please? My least favorite day of the year is the day after Christmas. Sad times.


Currently training for:
-Rock N Roll New Orleans Marathon – February 2, 2013, Louisiana
-Glass Slipper Challenge, Princess Half Marathon Weekend – February 22 & 23, Walt Disney World

Saturday – Travel Day
SundayWoman’s Half Marathon; Baton Rouge, LA
Monday – Rest Day
Tuesday – Rest Day 
Wednesday – 2 mile run; Squats/Lunges Routine
Thursday – 4 mile run; Squats/Lunges Routine
Friday – Squats/Lunges Routine and 30 Day Core Challenge

Thursday night, I set out for a 4 mile run in my brand new tights.

Cold Weather Running

I bought my tights a size too large and I tugged on the darn things during the entire run. Ah well…lesson learned. Size down.

Mizuno Wave Inspire

I also enjoyed a run in my brand new Mizuno Wave Inspire’s. They’re supposed to be a Christmas present but weren’t wrapped yet. Fair game, right? I sure hope my husband isn’t reading this… (Hi, Jason!)

Mizuno Wave Inspire 9

Madalynn ran very well with me last night – she made it to three miles and wanted to keep running. Three miles is the furthest she’s run this season so far, so I stopped her there.

I have a long run planned on Saturday, although I’m not sure how far just yet. I’m still working out the kinks in my schedule for Rock N Roll New Orleans…it will be here in 8 short weeks! Originally, I hadn’t planned on running any Full’s this year, just Half’s…but I couldn’t help myself. Really long runs, here I come!

I hope you have a great weekend! I have a few Christmas parties and a graduation party to attend. What’s your weekend plans?


  1. I'm liking the color of those shoes! Sounds like you have a fun weekend planned! I have a few holiday functions to attend but supposedly we are suppose to get a snow storm, so we shall see!

    1. Thanks! Hope the snow doesn't ruin party plans! :0)

  2. I've got 8 miles to do tomorrow, walking so I can try to keep my IT band happy. I can't believe my race is in less than a month *eek!*

    1. Hope you have a great walk/run with no it band issues! I feel your pain...

  3. Love the new shoes! I'll see you in Nola! Although I'm running the half. Good luck training! Have fun this weekend!

    1. YAY for Nola! Excited!! Hope you enjoy your weekend, Mindy!

  4. Great work this week! Love the story about the tights. I always size up in bottoms but, sadly, never had this problem.

  5. Sounds like you've got a fun weekend planned! I'm running 7 miles tomorrow morning followed by going to Universal Studios Hollywood with my wife. After being the performer last weekend, I get to watch my sister in law sing at her church this Sunday.

    Good luck in your training for a full marathon. I've got one big, crazy long run next weekend. It will be the last one before Disney World. I still can't believe that I'll be running a full marathon in 30 days!

    1. So much fun!! I hope you guys have a great time! Best of luck with your training for're going to have so much fun!!

  6. Your new shoes are really pretty. I never am thrilled with the color of my Brooks shoes, but would never change since they fit me perfectly! Anything unwrapped is always fair game in my household!

    1. Thanks, Pam...sometimes, my new shoe colors aren't to my liking either so I know what you mean! Haha glad you agree with me!! :0)
