This weekend we had a blast of summer-like heat. Temperatures in the 90s, high humidity. Just a preview of what’s to come for summer training. For the first few months of my distance-running life, I trained in the evening after work. As summer rolled in, I found the heat from the asphalt below and the … More The Secret to Becoming a Morning Runner
Does anyone else feel like April just flew by? April Round Up I’m not formally training, so during the month of April, I cut back both my mileage and my days-per-week of running. I only ran 4x a week (compared to 5-6) and averaged around 23 miles per week. I hit my goal of getting … More April Running Round Up
I am seven weeks away from my next training cycle and this “light” running and strength is really making me hungry to train. What started as a cut back in mileage and days-per-week of running to recover and recharge has started to turn into restricting myself from running – but I mean that in a … More Seven Weeks until Training
Well hello there, it’s been a while. I thought I’d share some updates on training, racing, and life! Training Coming out of Shamrock weekend, I had to turn right around and go out of town mid-week for a conference up in DC. I generally take a week off after a goal race for some R&R, but … More Training, Racing, and Life Updates
I survived! If you follow any runner on social media that ran Shamrock, then you already know that this weekend’s weather turned out to be pretty brutal. I had personally expected wind since this race is right on the coast, but King Neptune didn’t quite get in a good word with Aeolus. Going into the race, … More 2017 Shamrock Half Marathon Recap
And 18 weeks later, race week is finally here. Katie flies in Thursday and we will spend Friday hanging out around Richmond before heading down to Virginia Beach for a girl’s weekend together. Last week was my last real week of “training.” Again, I’m using the term “training” loosely. Solid mileage? Check. Training in a … More Shamrock Training Update: It’s Race Week!
This year is just flying by. It’s hard to believe it’s already March! February came and went – and was oddly warm most of the time. After a week of shuffling around my training schedule to fit in work travel, I ended up coming down with a pretty nasty cold. Despite being down and out … More Shamrock Training Update: 2 Weeks until Race Day
February has really flown by and I can’t believe it’s just 4 weeks until Shamrock. Though I’m only running the half now, I’m too lazy to update my Shamrock graphic. The past few weeks have been pretty solid as far as training goes. I had a fun race at the Sweetheart 8K and have continued … More Shamrock Training Update: One Month to Go!
This weekend I ran my first race of 2017 – and my last race in my 20s! Originally, I was supposed to run the Frostbite 15K back in January. Unfortunately, the race fell on the weekend of my grandmother’s funeral services. Since I was out of town, I emailed the race director to see if … More Sweetheart 8K Race Recap
