Week of Oct 29-Nov 4, 2012:
Current Weight: 156.2 (Down 1.2 lbs from previous reported weight)
Total Lost to date: 64.6 lbs
My last reported training week was at the beginning of September. So, I've lost 1.2 lbs in 2 months. Not exactly a great result. However, I gave myself permission to eat and focus on training for the marathon, because it was just getting too stressful otherwise. At one point, I even stopped weighing myself at all.
This past week officially started my training for the Goofy Challenge I am doing January 12-13, 2013. For those that don't know about the Goofy Challenge, it is a set of races in one weekend at Disney World. You run the Disney Half Marathon on Saturday, and then run the Disney Marathon on Sunday. Doesn't that sound like fun?

I am not posting my full training schedule on my blog, because the lawyer in me screams of possible liabilities if someone follows it and gets hurt. I guess someone could try to extrapolate it from my training weeks, but that is a little too much paranoia for me. For the record: ATTEMPT TO COPY MY TRAINING AT YOUR OWN RISK. There, the lawyer in me is appeased. The main difference from the Columbus Marathon training is the back-to-back long runs on the weekend.
My intent was to add back in strength training this week. The bottom line is that I am no longer comfortable with my trainer. It is nothing he has explicitly done, it's just happened. I have decided (this weekend) to let my husband continue working out with him on his own, and I will do my own thing. To that end, I have ordered the New Rules for Lifting for Women as a possible answer. I have also taken some copious notes from another training source, but more on that later.
I have other things in the works that will definitely change my training post Goofy, but until some calls are made to the West Coast this morning, you'll have to be satisfied with this little teaser.
After Goofy, my next big thing is the Flying Pig Marathon in Cincinnati. I intend to take more advantage of my newer speed this time around and actually PUSH during the race. That means, I'll be adding speed work to my workouts for the first time ever.

Today, I'm taking a rest day and taking care of a sick kiddo.
