This weekend was the Cleveland Marathon. For the first time I got a view from the sideline, rather than participating in the race. It wasn’t so bad (kind of fun actually) and I got to see Rob at 6 places during the race and also got to cheer on Rachel! Oh, and Rob hit his goal time and PR’d by 11 minutes! I’ll share more about the race later this week. I just wanted to pop in with my weekly wrap before we head back to Baltimore.
Monday: 30 minutes core-focused strength training
I did a lot of work with these bands, which challenge my core and balance. I was planning to do the bike but didn’t have enough time.
Tuesday: 3 mile run/walk, Run and 10 Core workout
Wednesday: 1 hour strength training
I mostly used the TRX for this workout and also added in some mobility work.
Thursday: 3 mile run/walk and Run and 10 Glute workout
By Thursday by allergies were pretty bad, and I felt like I had to sneeze the whole time I was outside. I don’t really sneeze while I am running for some reason, but for the rest of the day I was sneezing quite a bit.
Friday: Run and 10 Upper Body DVD, Foam rolling
We took a half day to leave for the drive to Cleveland. In the morning I tried to get some blog stuff taken care of so only had time for a short workout.
Saturday: 4 mile run/walk
I did a run/walk around Rob’s parents’ neighborhood. It was nice and flat, and I found a good loop to take.
Around 10 we headed downtown to the expo, and then just hung out at his parents’ the rest of the day so he could rest up.
Sunday: Cheering on Rob in the Cleveland Marathon
This was kind of a workout. I spent most of the morning driving but was also running to and from my car so I didnt miss him. I ran a half mile in the pouring rain at the end to try to see him at the finish line…with a backpack and umbrella which was being blown all over the place by the wind. So I’m not calling this a rest day:)
I know this upcoming week is going to be a little crazy as there is a lot going on and we are getting back Monday afternoon (so a short work week). I hope to share more about the race in a few days, but I can’t make any promises. Thanks to everyone who wished Rob good luck on Instagram! He told me that one of the reasons he kept running was because he know I would be posting about his race on my blog. So you all motivated him!!

Who else raced (or spectated a race) this weekend?
Anyone else dealing with spring allergies?
Are you motivated by knowing you will be posting about a race on your blog/social media/etc?
