My Next 7 Runs

On Thursday, I'm leaving to go to my parents' for a little over a week. I'm tremendously excited about all the family/friends/events/activities that I'll be squeezing in during that time. (I really hope that Stephanie has her baby while I'm home!)

Athletically, home is a dream come true! I'll be with my running mom and sisters, run a 5K with my cousins, have access to pools and the YMCA (I never in my life thought I would ache so longingly for a YMCA...we need one here desperately.), and generally just be in an environment where exercise/health is embraced instead of skeptically, slightly disapprovingly viewed as something a little wacky. (That might a little bit of a hyperbole, but not much.)

Here's the plan:

1 mile, evening
(Remarkably, I haven't been sore at all from my 10 miler on Saturday, but I'm a little concerned because I had some slight knee aches during the run. So I'm taking it a little easy.)

3 miles, morning

5-6 miles, evening

1 mile, first thing

2 miles, at home!

5K for the Greenway

8 miles

Thanks for peeking in on me and holding me accountable! This is by far the best I've ever stuck to a training plan.


  1. It sounds awesome! I wish my fanily was as fun and athletic! When we go on vacas it is all about crap food and no one EVER wants to exercise w me!Can you adopt me?

  2. I sure hope you're at home when I have him too. He MUST meet Aunt Rachel. Praying for any day now!

  3. Solid plan, and enjoy the family/friends. Good luck in the 5K!
