Week 3 of Marathon Training
Tuesday, August 28, 2012      4 comments

So far so good! I have a new coach, Joe, with The Boston Running Center and the training is very specific but doable! Did a 7 mile easy run on Sunday and felt great! Yesterday I did some core work like I never had! It was hard! Here's the l... Read more
Week 2 of Marathon Training
Tuesday, August 21, 2012      6 comments

Week 1 went well. Was happy to finish it! I struggled with my "long" run of only 7 miles (I know some of you are saying "only 7 miles" but remember, I was running a Half Marathon every weekend for a while). My goal was to run it at a 9:15 pac... Read more

Tuesday, August 14, 2012      6 comments

Today I started training for my next and 3rd full Marathon, the Kiawah Island Marathon. It's on Dec. 8th in South Carolina. I chose this one because of it's flat and scenic course, and since it's near my Grandmother, she will get to see me do ... Read more

Thursday, July 05, 2012      12 comments

Someone from my Running Friends group on Facebook offered me two guaranteed entries to this race the night before the lottery opened. I wasn't super familiar with this race, but since it was the world's largest 10k with 60,000 people, how could... Read more
Feedback & results on The 19 Day Get Lean Project
Saturday, June 30, 2012      11 comments

Here's how I got started with this program. After almost 6 months of not feeling good and injury, taking 2 months from working out, I just felt sluggish and heavy, so I needed a jump start to lean out before I start marathon training in August.... Read more
I am a Triathlete!!! Woo Hoo!
Saturday, June 16, 2012      25 comments

Today I completed another milestone - finishing my first Triathlon! I found out about this race 5 weeks ago, and the main reason I signed up for it was because I had never seen a swim that short and in a pool (I don't swim). It was the In... Read more
Finally, a complete bike ride!
Monday, June 11, 2012      5 comments

Yesterday after church I wanted to go to our local Running & Riding Trail to ride my bike. The trail is 11 miles total. I need 9.25 for the Triathlon I'm doing. I got my bottle cage, filled the bottle, got to the park and was easily able to p... Read more
My 2nd Bike Ride...what an adventure!!!
Saturday, June 09, 2012      6 comments

This morning I ran a 5k and did much better than the one last month. No major breathing issues and only walked the water stations (vs. last month, walked 8-10 times). Finished 26:39, which is nowhere near a personal best, but I'll take it and ... Read more
Did my first "brick"...well, sort of! :-)

I toyed with the thought of doing a long run today with a group, but didn't sleep well last night, so slept past my window to run outside, so decided to head to the gym for run and bike. Remember, my Tri will be a reverse, so I'll run 3.1 m... Read more
Biked...at the gym...
Friday, June 01, 2012      7 comments

Well I thought I'd get the feel of riding, and since I don't have a bike yet, I got on the upright bike (I normally ride the recumbent one) and rode for 9.25 miles which is the biking distance of the Tri I'll be doing. I did it at 75-80% max HR... Read more
First Swim in a Lap Pool...so this is what 225 yards feels like!
Thursday, May 31, 2012      6 comments

A running friend who is training for her 2nd Triathlon invited me to her gym to swim tonight. The local Rec pool doesn't open until next week and I need all the help I can get, so I went. So far, I've swam in my Mom's pool which is just over 1... Read more
I BOUGHT A BIKE!!!
Wednesday, May 30, 2012      16 comments

So after complaining that I didn't want to spend a bunch of money on this Tri, I have now bought a Tri Suit (got a great deal from www.swimbikerun.com for $29.99 for top and bottom each (normally $59.99) and then this morning I broke down and bo... Read more
2nd Day in the Water...CAN YOU SAY PROGRESS!!!
Sunday, May 27, 2012      6 comments

Went over Mom's for dinner so figured I'd get a swim in while there. I was determined to beat my 30 minute time for doing 20 laps. While I didn't do any laps without rest, I definitely took less rest than the other day, so I was SO excited... Read more
Finally got in the water...21 days until my 1st Triathlon!
Saturday, May 26, 2012      10 comments

Yesterday I decided to give swimming a "try" lol! My Mom has a pool so it was easier to go over her house than be humiliated at a public pool since I don't really know swim technique. Basically I can get from one end to the other but it ain't ... Read more
