Weekly Roundup: August 11th

What a week!  Christine started her week with 6 miles of running last Sunday and completed her longest run ever yesterday, 17 miles.  Her weekly total was also the most ever at 32 miles.  Most people will only drive that distance!

Paddy is good for a pre run snuggle!

Pam's week started off great with some good cross training and several good runs on Monday and Wednesday.  Sadly an injury to her right quad muscle at TRX class on Thursday has made the last few days quiet ones.  However, the quad seems to be improving and a trip to PT on Monday afternoon will hopefully give some good results.

Lots of icing to help heal the quad muscle!
Of course the week was not a total failure for Pam since she got to enjoy one of these and not even at a Disney Park or resort!

So lucky to the Freshberry 2 miles from the house.

  1. Mmmm for the sweets we get to treat ourselves after runs - nice work ladies and hope you feel better soon Pam!

    1. Thanks Kat. I can't wait to lace up my running shoes again. It is hard to me to rest! :)

  2. Great training week! Pam, I hope your injury isn't serious.

  3. Go Christine! I remember 17/18 miles being such a huge milestone during marathon training!

    Pam, I hope your injury isn't too bad and gets better quick!

    1. Thank you Danielle! I realized that I only have 9 more to get to 26 which was an amazing thought! You have been an incredible cheerleader and I really, really appreciate it :) -C

    2. Like I said on Twitter it's been great to follow someone who is working with the same crazy race schedule (Dumbo, MCM, Dopey - what were we thinking?!?). Can't wait to meet in person, it seems so funny that we haven't, I totally feel like I know you and your mom!

  4. Get well soon Pam! Congrats on your long run Christine!

  5. Congrats on the 17 miles! That's amazing! It's so true your hitting mileages people only drive and it's a great feeling/accomplishment! :)

    And so sorry about your injury. I hope you feel better soon and hope it doesn't affect Dumbo too much! But better to take it easy now, than to rush back into the training (as I'm sure you know).
