Chicago Marathon Training 2016: Week 7 & Other Recent Happenings

Good morning! How are you guys doing?

Life has been pretty great lately. Andy and I got to spend some time with his brother, who was in town from California last week. I took a couple of days off work last week and we went to the zoo and mini golfing! Even more importantly (just kidding), we have been working to catch all the Pokemon 😉


I caught this Pikachu IN OUR APARTMENT!

I have also had a bit of time to work on my coloring book, so basically I’m a kid again:


In other (annoying) news, the condo above our’s has a leaky pipe, which leaked tons of water into OUR bathroom. Getting ready in the morning has been a bit… damp… I’m writing this on Sunday afternoon, so by the time this Workout Wednesday post goes up, the pipe will hopefully be fixed. I will let you know (in case anyone cares, LOL).


The damage extends all the way to the other side of that wall on the left…

Marathon training is still going strong, despite a minor setback after the Rock n’ Roll Chicago Half Marathon last weekend. For some reason, my right leg felt numb after the race. I took off 3 days from running and now feel back to normal, for the most part. So, my week wasn’t as full of running/other workouts as it normally is.

Last Week’s Workouts:

Monday – Walked for 12,000+ steps at the zoo. Totally counts as a workout 😉

Tuesday – This Yoga for Runners video instead of running.

Wednesday – Rest

Thursday – 7 mile run

Friday – Rest

Saturday – 10 mile HOT run. Oksana and I nearly died during this one…

Sunday – SWORKIT strength for 25 minutes.

As you can see, I gave myself a real step-back week. I really needed it, though, so I’m happy 🙂

Have you ever experienced this kind of plumbing issue? 

How did your workouts go last week?
