Running and Running

August is moving along quickly. I’ve had my head stuck in Kindergarten world for the past couple of week and I’m just now coming up for air. Between starting back to school, trying to hold off sinus infections and strep throat (THIS EARLY???) and maintaining the laundry, I’ve not had as many morning training sessions …

Running Base Building #10

Oh what a difference a week of storms make!!! I got miles. I got miles on the treadmill. I got miles, y’all. It’s been a great week! Eventually, I’m going to change this series to some actual running training. I don’t see it happening until after June. I am building as much base as  I …

Running Base Building #9

The running mojo is slowly coming back around. It seems to do that every spring and I doubt I’m alone. Thursday: 2.03 (yes, it matters) miles. Friday: 2 miles early in the morning. It was the Friday before the Friday before Spring break so maybe that’s why I was up early bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. I …

Running Base Building Week #4

Last week’s running review was possible an appetizer for this week. While this week wasn’t as bad, it wasn’t great. I did get in 3 different running workouts. Some were more walking than running. I just felt off and weird and I was struggling. I hope I’m not getting sick because in my past running …

Couch to 5K (3.1) miles

I took my first steps to running using this program. Actually, my first run was early in the morning wearing khaki shorts and a t-shirt on a cold day in February, 2005. That wasn’t very smart, but I was desperate for sleep. I knew from long ago days of track and basketball that if I …

Running Goals for 2019

For the first installment of Monday Miles, I’m taking a hard look at what I want to do in my running shoes for 2019.  2018 wasn’t the best year for running. I was injured and overweight for most of it and I didn’t have the most fun. I’m 14 days into 2019 and it’s already …

Running Base Building Week 2

What a difference a week makes. Sometimes the motivation is high and things just go right. That was this week. It was a wild week at school and things are getting more stressful. Getting outside to pound some pavement (instead of pounding adult faces) was absolutely necessary to my mental health.  With morning CrossFit classes …

Pre-marathon Training

Taking on an 18 week marathon training plan is daunting. What’s even more daunting is pre-marathon training. If you’re not in running shape to complete a 5 mile long run on the first week, then you’re not ready to start the 18 weeks. Not to say that it’s not possible, but it’s not going to …

Running into Spring

On on hand, this has crawled by with turtle paces. It’s been busy, that’s for sure. Then again, here I am staring at Friday again and I’m not sure if I need sleep or coffee or a hug. We are in that special time of year. Kinda Spring. Kinda Winter. The calendar reads Spring. We …
