Gotta Run Now Video




I'm running a marathon, The Woodlands Marathon, in less than 5 weeks and a half marathon on the trails in 3 weeks! I wish my total weekly miles was higher, but I'm slowly increasing them because I've been sick - better safe than sorry!

After one of my runs this week, my husband used his drone to record me running with our Weimaraner, Zoe, in the park where I do most of my running. I posted the 40 second video today.

Workout Recap

Monday: strength train, 6.3 mile run
Tuesday: 4.2 mile easy run
Wednesday: strength train, 8 mile easy run
Thursday: 30 minute walk with my dog
Friday: 13.5 mile progression run (fast finish), strength train
Saturday: 3 mile easy run with only 3 sprints, foam roll
Sunday: rest

Totals: running: 35 miles, strength training sessions: 3

Because I try to do sprints at the end of my run, I often forget to do them until it's almost too late. How do you remember to do your planned workouts? At least I finally remembered to use my foam roller on Saturday!

    1. Right after a run, I just want to clean up and I forget that foam roller sitting quietly in the corner!

  2. Whoa, your husband has a drone? That's pretty crazy. I don't know if I would want to see a video of myself running, to be honest...I have a feeling it's not pretty.

    1. Ha, ha! Yeah, it's easy to be too hard on ourselves!

  3. My friend Lauren did the Woodlands Marathon last year for her first! I'll have to come back later and watch your video cus I really want to see your dog in action and for some reason I can't play it on my phone! That is so cool that your hubby has a drone! -M

    1. I'm sorry that it didn't work on your phone! I did the Woodlands Half Marathon the last two years and wanted to give the marathon course a try this year. Maybe I'll try running with a pace group.

  4. That's great, love the video! Health is always first for me in training and I think that it's a wise approach to make sure you feel good! I'm sure you'll do great!

    1. Thanks, Robin! I'm reminding myself that it's better to be under trained than over trained and exhausted!

    1. Ha, ha! He's always liked remote controlled toys - it's just that this one has a camera on it!

  7. The drone video is so cool! They had a drone filming at a race I was in recently and I felt the need to duck!
    I just am getting over a beast of a cold, bleh. I feel pretty good, but I still have a cough. You will do great in your upcoming races--you have muscle memory on your side!
    I took my pups for a "run" today when I was snow shoeing--They did not like it. They were like, "remember how we used to walk???"

    1. You snow shoe? How fun! It must be a lot more work than a regular walk, but then a lot of stuff is more strenuous when you add snow into the mix!

  8. Cool that your hubby took a video! My hubby has a drone w/ video too. I should have him try that. It's amazing the things you can do w/ them! I am horrible about remembering my workouts, and I'm even worse about remember which rep I'm on in workouts.

    1. You need to post a running video, too! My husband said it was easy to use Magisto to make the video.

  9. Great job for the week. I use BJ Fogg's Tiny Habits with my clients to build good habits. May be helpful adding sprints to certain runs.

    1. I've never heard of BJ Fogg's Tiny Habits. I'll look into it. Thanks!

  10. A drone? Whoa!! That's so neat though!

    I don't always remember all the little things I planned to do in workouts, like sprints at the end or certain turns I wanted to take in the route, but I just go with the flow. Sometimes what I end up improvising is better than what I had originally planned anyway!

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who forgets! Lots of improvising on my part, too!

  11. Fun video! My mileage hasn't been as high as I hoped for my upcoming races either, but I agree, better to be at the starting line than miss them all together!

    1. Your careful increase of miles will pay off!

  12. I love the video! I wish we lived closer so we could meet and share some miles :) I'm very jealous of your weather!!!

  13. Nice miles!! That video is too cool. So your hubby recorded it, did he put it together too? That's super sweet. You must be getting way excited for your upcoming races. Best wishes for you!! I'm looking forward to your race recaps :)

    1. Thanks! My husband made the whole video from recording it to putting it together and I was surprised when I sat down and he showed it to me. He said using Magisto made it easy to do.
