The Weekly Mile: Week 23 (The 20 Miler!)

Monday, September 17, 2012      12 comments

You guys. I ran 20 miles. In a row. And I only took about 3/4 of a mile in accumulative walk breaks... I feel like a Super Hero. Except I also feel like I've been hit by a Mini Cooper. Preparedness, I'm sure, for the fact that after I... Read more

The Weekly Mile: Week 22 (The Importance of Step Backs)

Monday, September 10, 2012      5 comments

Nikhil believes in accumulative training. Even though it's pretty contrary to every book ever published on running, I have to respect that everyone has their own methods for going the distance. He likes running further every time he runs. I f... Read more

Wednesday, September 05, 2012      9 comments

I still haven't run the entirety of the Lakefront Trail - but this week I completed 18 miles, and I saw what the other end of the path looks like. So overall, we're calling this week a big win. After spending some time sulking about what I... Read more

The Weekly Mile: Week 20 (If All You Can Do Is Tri...)

Tuesday, August 28, 2012      9 comments

I was due for a setback. That's what I keep telling myself anyway. Things were going SO well, and this weekend, I ran headfirst into a wall. I'm bummed. Totally disappointed in myself. And more than just a little bit freaked out. All you n... Read more

Monday, August 13, 2012      12 comments

I finally did it. I broke past the Half Marathon mind barrier and ran 14 miles on Saturday. YUSS!!! And this week I'll do it again and run 16 miles! I have now reached the point in my training where every week is going to be a new mi... Read more

The Weekly Mile: Week 17 (Solid)

Monday, August 06, 2012      4 comments

It's Monday. Yesterday I ran 12 miles. I should hurt a little bit today right? But truth of the matter is I FEEL GREAT, so that has to mean that I'm doing something right...right? I would assume that it's a combination of a bunch of things... Read more

The Weekly Mile: Week 16 (New Shoes, New GU, New Man)

Monday, July 30, 2012      8 comments

I suppose it was time for a change - in a lot of different ways! Rule #1 with running, and one that I stick by religiously: When something starts bothering you that wasn't bothering you before, get new shoes. For a couple of runs now, I ha... Read more

The Weekly Mile: Week 15 (Cute Boys and Hot Dogs?)

Tuesday, July 24, 2012      5 comments

Everyone has to have a reason to run. My reasons are usually health related, the way I feel AFTER a good run, and so I can eat more. Seriously. But I'm not gonna lie and say that hot boys and cute dogs aren't also a good reason to run. And i... Read more

The Weekly Mile: Week 14 (Heat, Sleep & Disappointment)

Tuesday, July 17, 2012      12 comments

I can't drag my butt out of bed in the morning. I don't know if it's because of the heat, or because I'm working about 100 hours a week, or because maybe I'm a little depressed, or what's going on - but right now, my mortal enemy is the morning ... Read more

The Weekly Mile: Week 12 & 13 (Double Double)

Monday, July 09, 2012      9 comments

In a list of favorite "Canadian-isms" the term "Double Double" is close to the top of the list. It comes from Tim Horton's (our Canadian version of Dunkin' Donuts) and is a way in which you order your coffee - a double double comes with double ... Read more

The Weekly Mile: Week 10 (A Confident Taper?)

Tuesday, June 19, 2012      8 comments

I missed a Monday! Oops. Most of you know that my life is insane right now (I'm working 4 jobs and training for a Half) and this week is no exception even though I should be trying to take it easy before Sunday. No such luck. But I hav... Read more

The Weekly Mile: Week 9 (Nerves of...)

Monday, June 11, 2012      6 comments

Pre-race panic has officially set in. I'm two weeks away from my Half and feeling VERY under-trained. How did I get here? I was doing so well! More challenges this week in my distance training - I was able to bounce back pretty quick fro... Read more

The Weekly Mile: Week 8 (Doctor's Orders)

Monday, June 04, 2012      8 comments

I can't run this week. And that sucks. I also can't swim, and that sucks more. I was in for a minor abdominal procedure over the weekend - nothing serious - but when I questioned about the recovery period and when I could start running again,... Read more
