So a couple of weeks ago, I ran this 5K and it was pretty awesome, but I totally didn’t blog about it. Oops! Happy to be finished! I ran it with a client of mine, pacing her to a huge PR, which was very exciting and very nearly puke-worthy (for her). She did such a […]
Embracing the Suck
It’s been a month since the AR50 and I think I am finally, just now, almost fully recovered. It’s been a terrific month, full of very easy-paced (though I would argue, not easy) running and some lovely trail time with UltraIronHubs. Just this week, on one of my runs, my legs felt wonderful and fresh […]
Post-Race Blues – it’s a Thing.
I always forget how hard the week after a big race is. The first few days are so nice, with everybody congratulating you and other runners asking about the race and actually wanting to hear the gory details. Plus, you’re still so sore that going for a run is slightly less appealing than normal, so […]
Everything is AWESOME!!!
Just a few more notes about last weekend’s Modesto Half Marathon: On a whim, I added a few songs to my iPod Shuffle right before the race. I really like having a new song pop up, sometimes it can bring a lot of energy to a run. Of course, sometimes it can suck, too, but […]
Sunday Runday (in Photos)
I am not a fan of Daylight Saving Time. It’s not losing the hour of sleep so much, since I’m always losing sleep, but I hate losing an hour of running! I like to run early. Sometimes really early, but any kind of early will do. So not getting started until 8 am this morning […]
Ordinarily, I’m no great fan of recovery week. In fact, I generally spend the week bitching and moaning about how much I hate recovery, how much it sucks to cut back on mileage, why it’s lame to run an easy pace all week, wah, wah, wah-itty wah. You know, missing the entire point of the […]
The Start of Something New
I did not stay up until midnight last night. In fact, I barely made it past 8 pm and that’s already pretty late for me. (I get up in the 3 am range most days and I love me my sleep, so I’m usually headed for bed when other people are still eating dinner. Ha!) […]
Things have been a little rough around here with my CIM training. Not physically – the runs have been going great and I’ve been hitting terrific speeds. But the mental side of training has been harder than I was prepared for. I was super excited to get started on all of that speedworky goodness, but […]
Update: My YouTube Channel and a 14-Mile Half Marathon!
In my real life – you know, those silly hours I spend doing something other than training. Whatever. – I work in my own business as a personal trainer. It’s pretty much the most awesome job in the world. Mostly I go to people’s houses and kick their asses for an hour. Seriously, can you […]
So I finally realized last week what’s been missing from my Friday long runs: seeing other runners. I see old ladies out walking their dogs, children on their way to school and drivers on their way to work (who think it’s okay to make right hand turns directly in front of me as I’m stepping […]
