“At first an ordeal and then an accomplishment, the daily run becomes a staple, like bread, or wine, a fine marriage, or air. It is also a free pass to friendship.”

Rainier Training: Week 2

Quick Look:
# of Workouts: 9
# of miles walked/ran/hiked/biked: 20
Weight: 206.6  (Down 3.4 lbs!)
Chest: 43.5"  (Down 0.5")
Waist: 46"  (Down 1")

My second week of Rainier training went pretty well despite a couple things that could have derailed it.  I lost 3.4 lbs and an inch off the waist!  My parents came to town to visit Avery - which added a necessary extra rest day so that I could pick them up from the airport and all that.  Nonetheless...

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday all involved two-workouts a day.  Wednesday was even two cardio workouts.  

I did skip Mommy Milers on Thursday this week, and I did take Friday off.  Despite that, I need my rest day Monday after running 10 miles in two days this weekend.  Prior to this weekend, recently, I've been running that much in a week.  I ran 10 miles this weekend because I did the NOBO workout and went back out for a mile...and the next day I ran the Buckeye Classic 10K (see that race recap HERE.)
At the Buckeye Classic
I was better about my eating habits this weekend as well - despite the parents being in town.  We only went out to eat once - and I made good choices at the house for meals.  So, YAY!!!

Avery did turn 3 months old this week too - and rolled over from her tummy to her back last night!  WOW!  What a week!


  1. I thought your waist looked smaller today! You are hardcore!

  2. You always look fantastic in your running pictures, Mandy! Awesome week!! :)


Comments pretty much make my day - so thank you for yours!
