Recovering, week of 1.22

because this was very much a rest week. Other than for a date with their super duper foam roller on Monday, I didn’t even touch the gym until Thursday and that was really just a shakeout to see how I felt. Still sore, but improving, definitely not worth pushing. Saturday was just so beautiful out… Read More »

Training, week of 1.7

I already talked about how I marked my one year running anniversary. How did I mark the first half of the week after my running anniversary? Injured. I actually don’t think it was Saturday’s 7.77 miles so much as the 1.3 mile warmup on Friday in bad shoes. Luckily, it doesn’t appear to be a… 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 »

Happy Feet

I don’t want to jinx it, but I think I may be to the point where I don’t need to dedicate any Taylor Swift songs to my shoes. The shoes in the aforementioned tweet were OK but eventually went back because they were just cut too narrow. This is apparently a thing with recent ASICS.… Read More »

Sunday Funday Rebound Runday

I (sort of) meant what I said when I didn’t care about yesterday’s time. I was more about the photos and the experience and in the humidity/with the stairs, walking was smart move. But it bothered me that the first mile was so slow when I was running. Today I was having a typical slug… Read More »

5K Graduate

Not Couch to 5K. 5K! And only four days after my goal. My intention was to do 5K, it was not to do it without stop. I kept bribing myself “you can slow down at one mile. You can have a walk break at 20 minutes / 1.55 miles / 25 minutes / 30 minutes”.… Read More »

#GoTheDist February 2017

so about those February goals: 300,000 steps 50 miles biked Graduate C25K Going to be harder with one less day than last year and a travel day or two, but I think this is doable. Feb 2016 total was 313, 153. I’m OK with a stretch goal of 305,000. Yeah, obliterated. Thanks, Amsterdam. Final totals:… Read More »

Runners run on spreadsheets

While on the stationary bike today to give my knees a break, I started thinking about a training log. Runkeeper gives me some figures but I nerd out on numbers and it’s never enough. I love my spreadsheets (to the extent that I might go back and make a “spreadsheets” tag for my obsessive posts)!… Read More »
