Marathon Training, Weekly Workouts

Week 17 WW Recap

Again, a big fail of a week. I realized that I have lacked a whole lot of motivation due to my injuries the past few months. I HATE cross training when it is my only source of training. When I can’t run, I don’t exercise and I eat like shit. I need some motivation. Help!

Watch Ashley kill it in the NYC Marathon!
As you know the NYC marathon was canceled due to Hurricane Sandy’s bitchiness. In my opinion, I think it was the best decision that could be made with everything going on.

Also, with the marathon so close and my lack of running, I emailed the peeps at the Philadelphia Marathon to ask if I can transfer to the half marathon. Even though my knee isn’t heeled, if it feels better by November 18th, I definitely feel more comfortable running the 13.1 distance rather than the 26.2 distance. Crossing my fingers that they allow for the change!

  1. I had to switch to the half for Philly too!! They told me they couldn’t technically switch it and to just run the half course instead, and that will be fine!
