A Peek in our Week

 Welcome to another edition of a Peek in our Week.

I have only ran one time since Rock n roll Las Vegas. I set out to do 17 miles the Monday before Thanksgiving and sadly I only got 10 of them in. I was feeling tightness and pain in the back of my knees. Even though I really wanted to get the next 7 miles in, I decided that it wasn't worth pushing through and risking injury just so I could write a larger number on my training calendar. -M

I haven't ran since that run. I told myself I would focus a lot on stretching and strength training for a while. I did it for a few days but not as much as I should have.-M

Something troubling happened this past week. Because of this incident I am now a bit frightened to run on my own. I'm not really sure how I'm going to get in the rest of my long runs before the marathon. -M

On a positive note, I finally put my Christmas Tree up! Speaking of Christmas. We are going to be starting something fun this week so be sure to check us out on Instagram (@Fairytalesnfit) and Facebook so you can enjoy a bit of holiday cheer with us! ( believe me, you'll like it)-M

Earlier this week I was feeling a bit under the weather so I didn't run. When I was feeling better it rained here nonstop for two days.  Luckily I was able to get some treadmill workouts in. -L
One of the rainy days I lounged around watching Christmas movies all day while wrapping gifts. It was a very relaxing day. -L
 Saturday night I was invited to a Christmas party. It was so nice catching up with some girls I went to college with.  -L
The weather is suppose to be much better this coming week so we are hopeful that each of us gets some more miles in.  I can't believe we are almost a month away from the Goofy Challenge!
Don't forget to check out the holiday giveaway we have going on. You can see that HERE.
How have your runs been lately? Did you do anything exciting this past week?



  1. Looking forward to seeing your Instagram challenge. I am newly into it so trying to follow everyone I know and catch up. Hope your resting up so you can get back to running.

  2. Had a great week running in Big Bend Nat'l Park (TX) last week! Hope this next week is much better for you both!

  3. I had a tough week, but am back on track now (I hope). I hope you both have amazing weeks and are feeling fabulous.

  4. I finished my first 15K yesterday and I am still in Phoenix! I followed on instagram so I can't wait to see what you have planned! Have a great week!

  5. I ran 2.5 miles yesterday and that was more than enough for me. I can't imagine doing 17!!

  6. I'm sorry you had a troubling incident this week :( It sucks that it makes it difficult to go out on runs on your own. I hope things get better.

  7. Yes, Merenda, I hope everything is okay after that incident. Could you try to find a running buddy near you? Lacey, glad you're feeling better!
