Celebrate Week #8: Cap City Half Marathon Training Report

This week, Celebrate Blog Buttons!

You may have noticed, I have been working on re-designing my site. I still considering switching to self-hosted WordPress (but am afraid to “take the plunge”) and since Picnik is going away in April (this I am not happy about), I decided to try my hand at “designing” before making any major moves anytime soon. The lovely and talented Jenn over at Jenn’s Adventures has a beautifully designed blog that I absolutely love and she also writes a Tech-y Tuesday column, which I find very informative since I am a little technologically challenged. She wrote a post about how to design a Blog Button, but I was still having trouble totally lost, apparently. Jenn is also just about the sweetest person you will ever meet so she helped me set up my buttons. She is pretty-much my blogging hero.

Aren’t they beautiful?! If you think so, grab one! And go to Jenn’s site and grab hers while you are at it!

I had a great training week – it felt so awesome to run, relatively pain free!!

My Weekly Training ReCAP:
  • MON 01/23 – 2 mile training run in 30 min; 15:00 min pace per mile.
  • TUES 01/24 – 2 mile training run in 27 min; 13:33 min pace per mile.
  • SAT 01/28 – 5 mile MIT training run in 1:14; 14:21 min pace per mile.Β 

I wish I got one more day of running in, but I felt great on these runs, especially the 5 mile run so I am more than happy. Watch out Cap City – we are going to rock this race! πŸ™‚

Until the next mile marker,

  1. I like your new header for sure. And your buttons are cute.

    I would like to know how you get that graph on your post… that is great. I meant to ask you before when I first saw you were doing it.

    Glad you had a good week, Sara… here’s to another!

    You are so awesome for the shout out — I love this and I love you girl!! I’ve got your button on my blog, and I can’t wait to do MORE Tech-y Tuesday posts!!

    Also, great recap — I’m hoping to get settled and dive right back into my regular workout routine!

  3. RunningMandy says

    Woohoo for pain free runs!!!

  4. Me too, Christina! πŸ™‚

  5. Thanks, Elle! The graph is from my Weekly Recap from Dailymile.com. It’s free! I take a screenshot of my weekly workouts and post it here. They also email you one every week, but it is not in a graph form so I personally don’t like it as much. Check out Dailymile.com. I am sure you know a lot of people there already from the blogging community!! πŸ™‚

    Nice job doing three runs this week, Sara! Keep up the good work.

    I wish we lived closer to each other so that we could run together.

  9. Thanks for sharing the link to making buttons – just made my first one! I grabbed one of yours, feel free to grab mine.

  10. Those buttons look great! Such a bummer about Picnik huh? πŸ™‚ Great job this week. I love following your journey!

  11. Way to get in three runs!
