Thanks everyone who listened to my complaining last week and gave me encouraging words as I was heading into a race week. I spent a lot of my training unsure if maybe something was wrong with my legs or if I was on the verge of an injury. I am still having the extreme soreness,Continue reading “Colfax Marathon Training Week 14”

Colfax Training Week 13: Not the best week
Well… not all weeks are great and that’s ok! And this week was super NOT great. I was tired, I struggled to hit my paces and mileages, and I was just feeling a little over trained. So, I did what you do when your body is saying “I’ve had enough”. I backed off. I cutContinue reading “Colfax Training Week 13: Not the best week”
Colfax Training Week 12: Tired
Another week done… Each day it is getting more and more real, and I can feel it. I know that I am almost ready to run the Colfax Marathon, but I’m tired and training is hard.

Colfax Marathon Training Week 11: Cutback and Questival
Happy Monday Everyone!! This week was a bit of a nutty one, although it was a cutback week on my mileage. I gotta say, I wasn’t too sad about not running once I saw a bunch of snow in our forecast.

I’ve never run more than 30, no less over 35 miles in a single week. I really feel like I am training for a marathon. My legs felt great but I think myContinue reading “Chicago Training: Week 6 – Going Long (and hot)”
Some moving, some training, and lots of pictures!
Guess what! I have a furnished apartment! I have a desk, a table, futon, bed… I am a real person with a real place and I love it! I live in a historic building that was a hotel in the 1920’s. My apartment is pretty tiny, but it suits Frank and I (and our twoContinue reading “Some moving, some training, and lots of pictures!”
Training Update: Another Nice Relaxing Week
Last week was my final chill week before I start training for the Hospital Hill Half Marathon. It has been nice to run when I want, and not when I don’t, but I am pretty excited to get back to a regular schedule. I’ve had a few aches and pains that I’ve been working through,Continue reading “Training Update: Another Nice Relaxing Week”
