Marathon Training: Week 24, Day 1
Sunday, October 11, 2009      3 comments

Well I missed my 2nd short run for week 23, and I was not sure I would get to this run. I was a bit cranky about it. I felt like other events were sabotaging me. I was on my feet for 2 hrs before this run, and was not sure if it would do me in. ... Read more

I took it easy due to the knee giving me a fit, but knew I had to get out there and see what happened. Initially, I felt a little something and I could tell I was changing my gait, then giving me another issue in the shin. I corrected my form an... Read more

Sunday, October 04, 2009      15 comments last longest distance training run. It seems like just yesterday that my training began. Time really flies when you are having fun! I set the alarm, and surprisingly fell asleep and did not move until it went off. Sucked down a Cl... Read more

I feel like a kid at Christmas! After weeks of training (that are not quite over), here I am. I was waffling on whether to do the 26 miler as prescribed by Galloway (or not). Well I knew better. I have been so diligent with his schedule. It woul... Read more

So last week was a bit of an off week. Gotta love the kids being off of school on a day that you run...and your husband is either sleeping or working...and not treadmill. Ugh. I did get my planned mileage in, but some of it was on the elliptical... Read more
2010 Marathon Ponderings
Tuesday, September 22, 2009      3 comments

The city that I live in holds a marathon/half marathon/relay/twilight 5k every May. First weekend in May. It has been on my mind. I thought that if I kept a base LSD of 10 miles, along with weekday mileage, then I would not have to spend as much... Read more

I took advantage of my time working remotely today. And the skies look threatening too. I've been working to push myself on these short runs because I quietly want to break a sub 30 minute 5k. I do not know what else it will take for me to get t... Read more

I was unsure if today's run would happen, as I started it in the ER with my youngest twin daughter. She smooshed her hand in the sliding door of the minivan last night, and was still having trouble with it this morning. So I postponed the run to... Read more
Mileage and Meanderings
Thursday, September 17, 2009      4 comments

I have gotten miles in this week, just not in the traditional run way. I walked 20 minutes on Monday (just under a mile), and got in 1.6 on the elliptical on Tuesday. I struggled with some sinus/sore throat nonsense and did not want to push myse... Read more

Why is it that some folks feel that if you are new to running that you have to be excluded from training for certain events? That you just aren't 'that kind of runner' YET. That you just haven't had the time to build a base YET. That you really ... Read more

So much to say, so much to say, so much to say (as Dave Matthews Band sings). I opted to do out and back. I thought about driving out 23 miles, but there were unknowns along the 23 miles, and I was not sure if it was best. If I had a sudde... Read more

First...curse you iTunes! They updated their versions. The result? My data is not pushed to Nike+. Wah! It is still stored in my Nano, and I still get all the details....but I like the interface on Nike+. Anywho...this week I have really given m... Read more

Yesterday was a nutty day at work, and longer than I I got my short run in this morning while the girls were in preschool (yippeeee for the first day of preschool!). I focused on giving my all during run periods, and not backing off en... Read more

Another weekend morning and I did not want to get up. I tried to figure out ways to fit in the mileage and not get up, but I finally determined I just had to get out there and do it. Gotta hit the hay, so here it is: 8.01 miles 1:56:25 du... Read more

I did not want to get up early, and since I only had 8 miles to go...I got my zzzz's and got my run in later. I also wanted to see if my performance would be any better late morning/early afternoon...since my last shorter LSD was a really poor o... Read more
