Motivation Monday: Week Two Recap

I have an hour and a half to get this published before it’s no longer Monday. Talk about leaving it until the last minute. Whoops?

Before I get into last week’s running recap, I do have to say thank you for all the love and support in response to yesterday’s blog. Y’all are great. Mean it to the moon and back.

Also, Boys Town is going to state! So exciting (and the reason for this week’s header photo). As the Boys Town cheer coach, it’s been a wild ride and it’ll be fun to share this experience with the kids.

And without further adieu, here’s how my second week of training went:

  • Monday: Rest
  • Tuesday: 2.2 mile run
  • Wednesday: 2.75 mile run
  • Thursday: 2 mile run
  • Friday: Shoveled snow! (That counts as cardio, right?)
  • Saturday: Rest
  • Sunday: 3.32 mile run

I’m about a half mile under on each run’s goal, so I’ll need to step that up this week a bit. The distance also increases this week, so I’m going to do my best to get more into the 3.5-5 mile markers.

And Jacks has continued to be along for every run. Seriously, he’s a very good dog.

Two weeks in though, I’m feeling so much better. I have more energy, I’m not as sore and I’m enjoying the runs themselves more and more. Excited to see where week three takes me.

On to the next.

  1. Keep up the good work! My wife and I are doing the Novice 2 program for the Lincoln Half! Scheduled for an 8 mile run this Saturday (which is quite scary). Running keeps getting easier and easier. I actually found this blog from the Lincoln Marathon twitter account.

    1. Hi Andy! Sorry for the delayed response! I’m still getting the hang of this blog thing… My longest run so far is 5 miles. I can’t imagine 8 right now! How did it go??

      1. 8 was okay, it is still a long way to run for me. The key that I have found is for every run over an hour to use energy gels or chews halfway through. Not sure if it is a placebo or not but it seems to keep me from hitting the wall. Plus, this cold weather recently is not helping…
