Am I Goofy or What? Week #6 Training Recap

This recap is brought to you by…
Our post race photo!    

Yesterday, we ran the Columbus Half Marathon (Don’t worry, a full recap coming soon!). My sister PR’d with a 2:53:50! I am so proud of her! My official time was a 3:31:10, although my Garmin records a 3:19. I heard there may have been some technical difficulties with the timing device, but I am not sure about that. I struggled with some major stomach issues (not to mention fighting an ongoing cold) and had to take time-out to use the restroom more than once – which didn’t prove helpful. Every time I hydrated or fueled, my stomach knotted up causing severe discomfort. So many of the Lucky 13’s PR’d yesterday – which is fantastic! Check out their blogs for the awesome recaps that are being posted.
Mollie and I pre-race. I was already feeling rough, don’t let my smile fool you! 
This one is for you, Sarah. Someone had to do it.


  Am I Goofy or what?! My Weekly Training Recap:
  • TUE 10/11 – Ran for time; 45 minutes at an easy pace, 2.56 miles; 20 minutes strength training with Jillian Michaels Hot Bod in a Box.
  • WED – SAT – Resting due to illness. Ugh.
  • SUN 10/17- Completed my 7th Half Marathon – The Columbus Half Marathon!
My training this week was less than stellar. I should have run on Saturday in preparation for the Goofy, but I basically went on hiatus all week in an effort to avoid a full-blown cold, which pretty much happened anyway, just in time for my 7th Half! So much for Lucky #7! Guess I’ll have to wait for #13 now. 😉 

Did any of you race this weekend? If so, how was it? Did you PR?

Until the next mile marker,
