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 Keep Running

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 Keep Running

December 2017: Struggling

(I was originally writing this over the course of a week to post on 1/1, but I decided there was enough meat that would drown out a year-end recap). When I came back from the Christmas long weekend, I knew Keep Running

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 Keep Running
