Weekly Workouts January 26- February 8

Lately I've had some pretty great workouts. I've really been enjoying adding speed work into the mix to change things up a bit. Recently I made a goal for myself to go to the gym one day a week before work so that I can work out a total of 5 days a week. Yes, this means waking up at 4 am prior to working a 12 hour shift, but it also means that I can keep strength training and running as much as I want. I've stuck to it two weeks in a row and I plan on going this Thursday too.

This past weekend Em and I did our last long run prior to Princess Half Marathon Weekend in Disney. Our 5 miler on Saturday felt really good. Sunday I learned a really tough lesson in under fueling for a long run. I only ate a PB&J and had a cup of coffee prior to running. I also didn't hydrate well after my run on Saturday. I felt pretty good for the first few miles and then I started getting super hungry and tired. My fuel I brought wasn't cutting it and all I could focus on was finishing so that I could eat. Needless to say my last 4 miles were my fastest and I got very dizzy during my last mile (scary stuff!). I got back to my apartment as quickly as I could and drank Gatorade and ate pancakes and mac and cheese (ridiculous combo, I know). Lesson learned, I will never do that again!!
