Blogging about Blogging and Week 2!

I joined a blogging community, 20sb and I am already hooked! I do have to say it has made for a slightly less than productive day at work, but that will soon pass! So this post is a shout out to all of my new friends on 20sb!

Now, I am having a fantastic Monday! Aside from all of the compliments I am getting on my green nails (OPI Jade is the New Black), The Pilot is coming up to visit for St. Patrick's Day which is just 2 days away and I couldn't be more excited!

I am having a little St. Patty's Day soiree at my apartment before venturing off into the land of green beer, the Boondock Saints, rainbows, leprechauns, the Dropkick Murphys and all things Irish and Bostonian! I have a fantastic menu planned for the evening and will post pics, recipes and an update on Thursday!

Now, having The Pilot in town means getting up and out the door early for my runs and workouts! I am not a very good waker-upper, which is strange because I do love the mornings, but that initial dread of having to leave my warm sheets and actually get up is quite tricky! But, this blog has kept me very motivated so I think I'll be alright! We'll see as the week progresses, now won't we?

That being said, here's my plan for half-marathon/marathon training plan for:

Week 2
Monday: Rest Day! Stretch for 10-15 minutes so that I'm not stiff for tomorrow.
Tuesday: 3 mile run
Wednesday: 20-30 minutes of non-impact cardio
Thursday: 2 mile run (add incline)
Friday: 20-30 minutes of non-impact cardio
Saturday: 2 mile run
Sunday: 3 mile run

Now, Friday will be tough to get a workout in as I have a 6:50 am flight to DC (yikes!) for all day meetings at one of the graduate schools I applied to and won't have access to a gym. It's supposed to be beautiful in DC this weekend so I'll be running outdoors for sure, thus I won't be adding much incline to Saturday's 2 miler, but c'est la vie, that's for next week! I'll post my new 3 mile play list up tomorrow after my run!

I also really want to run a 5k next weekend in preparation for my 10k two weekends later but I'm having trouble finding one. We'll see how it goes!

Until next time!


  1. Good luck on training! I'm excited to see spring come around here so I can start running/jogging again.

    And 20sb is great!

  2. Thanks for the post and add! I'm now a follower of your blog as well!

  3. You're bold for putting this up (re productivity about work) I'm so paranoid that someone would read it that whenever I think about it I just change my mind.

    I've gotten a lot of support from 20sb, practically 80% of my bloggers. I def. recommend it for all new bloggers.
