New York City Marathon Training: Week 9

Date: September 19, 2016 at 1:57 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 31

Well. Things aren’t going so great around here. I’m still sick. This was the first week that I really couldn’t run and that my mileage really fell apart. And on top of the stomach stuff, which has gotten progressively worse, plus the […]

New York City Marathon Training: Week 8

Ugh. That’s pretty much all I can say to recap Week 8 of New York City Marathon training. The week started in Vermont, took me back to New Jersey for a few days, and wrapped up in Los Angeles, which is where […]

New York City Marathon Training: Week 7

Date: September 5, 2016 at 10:08 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 12

Going into marathon training, I knew there were two things that could derail even my best efforts at training and racing: an injury or a Crohn’s flare. I am extremely un-thrilled to report that the latter decided to show up during […]

New York City Marathon Training: Week 6

Date: August 29, 2016 at 8:36 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 17

This week was pretty status quo as far as training goes. I rode my bike twice, did yoga twice, and hit my highest mileage week so far. I foam rolled more than once (OK, only twice, but still), dealt with a […]

New York City Marathon Training: Week 3

Week 3 of New York City Marathon training was great! I loved Week 3! My third week of training consisted of two well-executed (and hard) workouts, a fun long run, and one delicious ice cream cone. I was working at […]

My Running Must-Haves

Date: August 5, 2016 at 10:09 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 18

Now that marathon training is ramping up, I find myself constantly turning to the same few, tried-and-true items I swear by when it comes to running. I’m a pretty firm believer that we as humans — especially in 2016 — […]

And just like that, the first week of marathon training is complete! Overall, I feel good about how the week went and I’m so happy to be back on a training plan. Here’s a little breakdown of how it all […]

Currently... (Turkey sandwiches! Paris! Celine Dion!)

Last night, in an act of total narcissism, I went back and re-read a bunch of my blog posts from when I was building up my mileage and training for my first marathon. It was kind of joyful reading about […]

My New York City Marathon Training Plan

Date: July 18, 2016 at 1:14 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 45

Happy Monday and Happy 16 Weeks Until the New York City Marathon! Today officially kicks off New York City Marathon training for me. I like a 16-week plan because it’s not too long, but it still allows room for a little flexibility. I […]

No Excuses—Play Like A Champion

I woke up in a foul mood yesterday. You know when you have a plan for your day and then something immediately doesn’t go according to said plan, and it throws off your entire day and your plan and your life? God […]
