Hartford Marathon Training – Week 3

Hartford Marathon Training – Week 3

Week 3 is in the books! It was another solid week of training, that’s for sure! Yesterday officially marked 11 weeks until race day & I know they are going to fly by 🙂 I’m really loving getting in that marathon training groove!

Another fun weekend is also in the books! Bruin had his first camping experience. Although the weather wasn’t the best (just a casual hail storm, pouring rain & 60mph winds) & we hung out in the car a bunch, I think he enjoyed himself! Unfortunately, the weather sucked yesterday too so we decided to come back home instead of spending another night at the camp ground.

This morning I woke up and went for my long run. It felt great! I probably could have kept running but I was starving. Rookie mistake = not eating before running. I’m glad I had a stinger waffle for during my run though! After my run, I successfully made protein pancakes for some re-fuelage.. finally! The last 2 recipes that I’ve tried have been a total fail. I’m excited to share this recipe later this week 🙂
