Marathon Training Update!

Well friends, I planned on giving weekly updates on Marathon training, and being all active on my blog - but it just didn't happen! haha

So, now that we are in the 7th week of Marathon Training I thought i'd give you a little update!

Post Pregnancy Training
I still feel like I'm getting to know my body, but I really can't complain. My pace is getting faster, and pushing the jogger is helping me get stronger! I have learned to listen to my body, and on days when I know I'm too tired, or could really benefit from rest, I rest.

Pushing a Jogger
I have a whole new respect for all Mother Runners. Pushing a jogger is not easy! Pushing a jogger in 90+ temps... I'm not ashamed to say that I get pretty excited after each run below the Disney 16 min pace that I run while pushing little lady in the jogger.

Cross Training? 
I've started doing PiYo and I love it!
The end.

Eating!
I've been eating, eating, eating to keep up with my calories. To accommodate PiYo workouts, running and breastfeeding I have to EAT! So, I do. and I have been tracking my calories with My Fitness Pal (Let's be friends, I'm fofosbride)

Being a Running Momma! 
I love it, I couldn't imagine training for the goofy challenge without my two chEAR leaders! Little Lady loves the jogging stroller, and my husband is always so encouraging - no matter what he tells me I'm doing great. It isn't always easy juggling running, working, being a wife and mom - but I would not trade it for ANYTHING!

Question of the day: How is your training going? Does it feel like it's going by extremely quickly?
