New York City Marathon Training: Week 14

Date: October 24, 2016 at 9:06 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 21

LAST WEEK WAS AWESOME. Warning: This post contains an excess of exclamation points. I’ll have an update tomorrow about all-things-Crohn’s and where they stand, but I am going to insist that getting out for a run last weekend is what put me […]

New York City Marathon Training: Week 13

Date: October 17, 2016 at 10:51 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 18

I thought I was done with my training recaps since, let’s be honest, am I really “training” right now? But this week had some little victorious and big breakthroughs, and I wanted to document them! This week marked my return […]

New York City Marathon Training: Weeks 10 & 11

Date: October 2, 2016 at 12:51 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 15

My first zero-mile weeks. The past two weeks have been rough — on the marathon training front and beyond. Weeks 10 and 11 of New York City Marathon training should’ve been my highest-mileage weeks thus far, but instead I didn’t run a […]

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

Date: September 12, 2016 at 12:42 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 20

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 5

Date: August 22, 2016 at 7:08 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 17

Week 5 of marathon training was a week. It was just…a week. An emotional one, a stressful one, a not-feeling-like-myself one. It was also the first week that I felt like marathon training really started to catch up to me. I […]

New York City Marathon Training: Week 4

Date: August 15, 2016 at 6:06 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 18

Hello from the other side of my fourth week of New York City Marathon training! We are officially 12 weeks out from Race Day, which seems…soon. Holy cow. Week 4 marked another really solid week of training for me. My […]

New York City Marathon Training: Week 2

Date: August 1, 2016 at 11:30 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 16

Well…Week 2 of New York City Marathon training was not the best. There was nothing particularly wrong or damaging, but I [again] didn’t prioritize strength training or foam rolling, I ate a lot of junk, and my runs were more meh […]
