Day off from running, took it off because I felt like I needed it.

2:30 PlankADay, 200 push-ups, 10 sit-ups

My husband read an article to me about a celebrity who does 200 push-ups a day.  So I said, bring it on, I can too!  So I did.


Long Run-10 miles, felt awful!

I was determined to get in 10 miles before church.  I started out well and about 5 miles in I fell off the pace, BAD!  I wanted to quit and walk home, but I knew that meant I would just have to do it another day.  I finished and  I wasn’t thrilled with how it went, but I knew my body was just saying it needed more time to recover from the marathon.  It wasn’t quite ready for a long-ish run yet.  Lets hope that was my bad run for the week and now the half marathon on Sunday will go much better!

I also have this awesome runner to inspire me to keep at it! Thanks Dorothy! #dreambigrunlong

A little freedom when the Garmin dies during a run


Whew!  Sleepy today, so I had to throw some pick-ups during my run so I wouldn’t sleep through it.

  1. I’m impressed with those push ups! Fantastic!!!
    I am looking forward to the Runners World Weekend: 5k, 10k and half marathon! Hope to see you there!

  2. I am running the 1/2…Hoping to get 5 in before and 3 in after for my last long for the NYC Marathon! Hoping to use the 1/2 as a MGP run! I can’t wait to head back to my college town and see my college coach 🙂 When will you guys be at the expo?
    Have a great day Jenelle!

  3. Have an amazing time at the RW half! I really wanted to do it, and I grew up not too far from there… but it’s now a flight away and I just couldn’t justify one more flight this fall. Can’t wait to hear about it. And nice work on the 200 push ups!

  4. Have a great time at Runner’s World, I would have loved to do it but Mike and I have a half marathon next weekend and a 5K the following weekend. After doing the relay (and the marathon) I don’t think racing four weekends in a row would be a great idea.

    Good luck!
