Disappointed with Tough Mudder

Sunday, December 16, 2012      9 comments

On friday I got an email saying Tough Mudder was having permit issues and was moving the date of their event from the 9th & 10th of Feb to April. They are offering a full refund but that doesn't change the fact we've already booked flights and h... Read more

Back to Basics

Today I did something I haven't in awhile. I went fairly overboard on brownies that our student brought us. I should mention they were delicious and well worth every single bite I ate! This is not a blog about being guilty but it is what I did ... Read more

Got my run in :-)

After skipping my run friday and not being able to go yesterday I got a tempo run in today. 2 miles easy, 3 miles at 8:50ish mpm pace, 2 miles easy for 6 miles in 57min. I have really been struggling to motivate myself to do my runs. I think it ... Read more

I was looking back a bit this week and noticed I weighed 77kg this time last year. I'm up a kg from where I was last year..... At first I felt like maybe that meant I had accomplished exactly nothing this year. But then I also noticed I'm s... Read more

A different prespective on what it is like to be skinny. Also a good reminder that being skinny doesn't necessarily mean everything will be right in your life or that you will no longer feel self concious about something. www.daily... Read more

What's next?

Wednesday, November 21, 2012      4 comments

This weekend I had some spare time to think about what's next. I had an unexpected extra week off running after getting a pretty nasty cold so wanted to figure out where to go from here. After a fair bit of time online and plenty of thought I've... Read more

After 16 weeks of training I finally ran my first marathon in October :-) I had a less than ideal lead up. I arrived in the US after a 13 hour flight and shortened my last 10 miler to 6 miles since I ran it with my friend in LA and ran it litera... Read more

Friday, September 28, 2012      3 comments

A bit late with this but I had a great 22 miler although it took me a little longer to recover from it. Probably didn't help that I slipped on some concrete while filling up water at mile 5.5 and fell on my butt and hand. I was really sore the n... Read more
