Short Work Week!
Here it is Tuesday and one more work day to go! We had our first snow over the weekend and it is starting to melt, it will be in the high 40's tomorrow and mid-50's on Thanksgiving so I think the snow will be pretty much gone.
I did get a 3... Read more
Finally Feeling Better!
Well last week I was out of town Tuesday through Friday and I still felt congested and had a cough, but I was much better than before. I did get a workout in while I was gone, but I did not run. One of my running buddies was trying to get a grou... Read more
After the Half Marathon!
So after the half marathon, my hubby and I went to breakfast and then walked home 1.5 miles since we walked to the race. Good for working out the muscles. I raked some leaves later that day, but mostly took it easy. Monday I had the day off and ... Read more
Half Marathon Day!
Well, I was at the doctor on Monday since my congestion was actually worse. Bronchitis and lungs sounded pretty bad. He gave me another round of antibiotics. He didn't tell me not to run the half marathon, he smiled and said "it probably won't b... Read more
Week 17 of Training - not done...
Oh, this has not been a good week. Last Saturday on the 8 mile run, I felt some congestion coming on. It got worse from there. I did not run at all this week, just not feeling up to it. Coughing, runny nose, sore throat. I did work out with my t... Read more
Week 16 of Training Done!
OK, the Half Marathon is now less than 2 weeks away! Wow! This past week I did not do a ton of running and that is OK, we are tapering. On Saturday, I decided to step it up a little and I ran with a faster pace group - they run at 10:30 min/mile... Read more
Week 15 of Training done!
So this week I flew to San Juan, PR on Tuesday and arrived home late yesterday evening. I did get some workouts done while I was gone, but not as much running as I would have liked. When i started training for this half marathon back in July it ... Read more
Week 14 of Training in the Books!
Well this past week was a better week for getting training done! Not as much family stuff getting in the way or allowing me to make excuses. The weather cooperated too! I'm feeling pretty good so far about this half marathon and I think it is a ... Read more
Week 13 of Training - Sort of done!
So, what can I say, last week was not a good training week. I'm not great about getting up in the morning to run unless it is my Saturday morning run. This week was just not in the cards for getting those runs in. But, this is one week out of a ... Read more
TGIF - Closing out a Busy Week!

Week 12 of Training Done!
6 more weeks of training to go, 2/3's of the way there! So far, so good. I was feeling a little run down so I backed off on the high intensity interval training this week - I skipped it on Thursday. I did not get near the number of miles schedul... Read more
8 Mile Training Run Done!
The training schedule from Nike is definitely different this year and they are telling us there is some sort of science to it - OK, I just go with it. Yesterday was an 8 mile run and next week we go back up to 10. I was in town this week and ha... Read more
10 Mile Run Done!
Last week was our longest run to date and it was 8 miles and it was hot out. Then we had this bump up to 10 miles this weekend and we were kind of nervous. I had to travel this week which always makes trying to get training runs in a challenge. ... Read more
Weekend Flew by!
The past week and the weekend flew by! Travel and family commitments impacted my running schedule this past week. Tuesday I flew to Phoenix for a day trip. Thursday I planned to go out for a 4 mile run and my BIL stopped by for some help with a ... Read more
