I hope you had an awesome weekend! Matthew and I went to Christmas Candylane at Hersheypark (super fun!) and then spent all day yesterday cleaning and decorating our apartment for Christmas. Because we travel so much this time of year, we like to have the decorations up long enough for us to truly enjoy them. 😍
Tuesday: 2.5 miles on the treadmill, 12:05 pace

Saturday: Hip workout- crunches (3 x 10), clamshells with resistance band (3 X 10), glute bridges (3 x 10), with yoga poses in between sets
Sunday: 8 miles, 12:06 pace
With one full week of unofficial Goofy Challenge training under my belt, I gotta say, it feels so damn good to be marathon training again. There's something about having a big goal to work towards that makes me feel strong and focused.
Yesterday's miles felt almost effortless. I jammed out to Taylor Swift's newest album, Reputation, and the miles just flew by. And yes, I'm a TS fan, judge all you want. 😜
I actually created and wrote out my training plan for the next eight weeks! While I've created training plans for myself in the past, I actually took the time necessary to put it down on paper, not just keeping it all in my brain. I'm really proud of how it turned out- check it out in yesterday's post!
Quote of the Week
I found this Amit Ray quote and it really struck me with how similar the fall season is to marathon training- growth, pain, beauty.
Make it a great week, friends!
