Training, week of 4.16

This was a weird week. Monday I went to the gym figuring I might have something in my legs despite going two days in a row since Saturday’s run was way below where it should have been. Nope. Couldn’t even get .05 miles so I took a cross train day and did a mile on… Read More »

Runners High meets #NYRRGridiron

Can you have a 48 hour runners’ high? That seems to be where this is going. This is also super long so TL;DR: I “raced” my first race today, and it was AH-MA-ZING! Rewinding… This was a(nother) weird week. After Saturdays runs, I walked and went to the gym to use the bike on Sunday… Read More »

13.1 thoughts

“keep that smile! you are a half marathoner!“ from a Facebook messenger chat with a friend and former colleague turned (not my) running coach. The smile hasn’t gone anywhere in 48 hours. It honestly took until Monday for the you are a half marathoner! feeling to hit and for me to realize I did it.… Read More »

#MedalMonday, Fred Lebow edition

So I’ve been a little secret squirrel with my “training” posts. I knew what I was training for but didn’t want to make it whatever the blog equivalent of “Facebook official” is, because I wasn’t honestly sure if I’d start. Or finish. Spoiler: I finished! My first half marathon (!) came in somewhere between 2:40:59… Read More »

One year running anniversary

Yep, today is a year to the day since this little whim started. And like was true in March, I truly ran away from I can’t. I knew I wanted to mark it somehow today, but wasn’t sure exactly. There was a since cancelled NYRR 10K that I thought about, but couldn’t commit to due… Read More »

Mile High Run Club: Mental edition

I knew I wanted to work out tonight and didn’t have the attention span to stay on the treadmill at the gym. So I checked Mile High Run Club’s schedule and saw there was something called a Jingle Bell Jog on the calendar for 7PM. It was The Distance, which I did not like the… Read More »

A learning week

Lots of learning No matter what kind of exercise I’m doing, December is a challenge. Not so much because of the holidays, but because work is peak crazy then due to our annual fundraiser. So my only priority last week was to get a run in. It was a challenge, but not the one I… Read More »

Winter Running: #TedCorbitt15K Chapter

I DID IT! The middle facial expression cracks me off because I look like I was miserable, but I had so much fun. And yes, I take responsibility for the snow. I got a text Friday night that they’d make the decision about the race at 6 AM and like Poland Spring, I was half… Read More »

Workouts, Week of 11.27

Between the 2,017 and November recaps, I almost missed this one. I can’t really say this week went as planned as I didn’t have an exact plan, but it went well. Tuesday, I hit the gym with a plan to focus on hills, and that’s what I did while simultaneously trying out a new pair… Read More »

Workouts, Week of 11.20

This week shook out almost but not exactly as I planned. Story of our lives, no? Tuesday – High 45 at Mile High Run Club. As I was walking in I saw this wonderful sign. I’m really trying not to overbuy this holiday season, choosing experiences and things of a true value/need. Another three pack… Read More »

Workouts, Week of 11.13

Why 11.13 and not 11.12?  Because I picked up 11.12 here. Don’t know if I’m going to stick with the format, but I like it for referring back, so we’ll see. Monday – off. Needed it after last weekend’s workouts. Barely made my Fitbit goal either Tuesday – train wreck that have become Tuesdays. A… Read More »

Mile High Wind Chill

I’m still trying to work out the balance between routine and rest. I’m pretty sure that’s going to be a thing forever, and I’m OK with that. As I briefly mentioned the other day, hills and weekend long runs are a challenge at the moment, although not an impossible one. The more pressing one to… Read More »

Women Run the World: #Mini10K edition

So after I ran last Sunday my hip was decidedly unhappy/cranky and I decided to ease up if I wanted to finish today. On Monday I cross trained on elliptical and recumbent bike after getting my mile in for the Strava challenge. Tuesday I jogged half a mile before moving to a walk on the… Read More »
