Yesterday was a mere 3 miles. The training program Jeff Galloway provided has us alternating weeks- so from now on every other week will be only 3 miles and the miles will increase in between. Last week was 5.5, next week is 7. It was a go... Read more

Yesterday's long Run was 5.5 miles- the longest I've ever done in my life. It went pretty well overall. The first mile or so was tough. The second mile...even tougher. But once I hit 2.5-ish (and could start to see "the end" lol) it started to g... Read more

Yesterday completed week 3 of marathon training. Our "Long Run" was actually only 2.5 miles because it was a recovery week. So we did the 2.5 but then hit the bike and elliptical for 40 extra minutes of cardio. It was a little rough because we a... Read more

Running Mood Swings
Monday, September 20, 2010      2 comments

Throughout the past couple months I have realized that running has severe mood swings. It swings from one workout to the next and it swings during workouts. This may seem obvious to you veteran athletes, but to a newbie- this takes a while to ... Read more

First Run with Forerunner!
Friday, September 03, 2010      11 comments

I love it! Its a little intimidating to use at first because there are so many (awesome) features. But once I read through the manual and played around with it, I more or less figured out how to work it. I plugged it into my computer and made ... Read more

It was alarmingly cold for this run. Not like winter cold, but about 68 degrees- which is freezing compared to the endless waves of heat we've been experiencing. It was also rainy and windy. I kinda liked it though...the park was empty but fo... Read more

I am done with week 8!!! Feeling pretty awesome about that :) Today's run was decent. We got out earlier, so it wasn't nearly as hot. The park was more crowded than usual, which is annoying, but manageable. I didn't feel like I was dragg... Read more

This wasn't nearly as bad as W8D1. Thankfully. We didn't get out as early as we'd hoped, so it was hot as heck out there! Gross. Luckily it rained yesterday so the humidity was a little better. I think the circuit training we've been do... Read more
