#ReadySweatGo to Vermont, Week of 8.6

I’m not original, #ReadySweatGo is a hashtag my gym has been using for their free personal trainer mini sessions. But like #NeverMissAMonday, it’s a good one. I was so looking forward to some cooler runs on vacation this week. This Keep Running

#GoTheDist July 2018

Where on earth did July go? A theme for the month was quality over quantity. Although I fell off pace on run mileage due to plantar fascitis flare and my first running fall, I had some really good workouts. I Keep Running

Training and Recovery, Week of 6.24 and #GoTheDist mid-year

You know those runs that are just absolute perfection in every way? That happened on Wednesday. This was an interesting week, running wise. The original plan earlier in June was to take this week off as I had a feeling Keep Running
