(This post was actually written way back In January and I just found it in my drafts. Thought I'd post it even though it's not all that current but no use in taking up space in my draft folder) Hi Friends! It's been so nice to get back to weekly blogging. There is something about … Continue reading Week in Review: Sign up for all of the things edition.
The last two weeks have been a true testament of runner versus weather. When I last updated on training, I thought we had really seen the worst of NE Ohio Winter (ha, so naive) yet each successive week has thrown more wrenches into the old training plan. Following a huge snow storm (snowpocalypse), we faced … Continue reading Playing Catch Up- Week(s) in Review
I'm officially 3 days out from the Leave No Trace Marathon! In my last post, I had just completed my longest run of this training cycle of 20.5 miles and was feeling good. Happy to report that I'm still feeling good a few weeks later. I've been tapering without issues-none of the usual second guessing … Continue reading It’s Race Week!!
I have always been a big fan of the long run. Endurance is my biggest asset when it comes to anything related to fitness or athletics. An example from this morning at crossfit, it's incredibly obvious where my strengths lie: our metcon was a combination of running, jump rope and hang power cleans. I felt … Continue reading Week in Review: I like Long Runs and I Cannot Lie
It's been a busy start to my summer and June has seemingly passed by in the blink of an eye (as it usually does!) In the two weeks since my last update, I've continued to run trails, lift weights and I even made time for a short trip to Charlotte, NC to see my sister … Continue reading Week(s) in Review
Hi! I'm back....still here and still training. Just missed a few weeks of posting. Work has been and will likely continue to be busy over the next few months as we prepare for a huge audit in the fall. My desire to write has somewhat waned as I've spent the majority of the day up … Continue reading Catching up
Last week I reduced my running in preparation for the Rite Aid Cleveland 8k and Half Marathon. I only ran twice (out of 3 total planned runs) and cut my mileage pretty significantly. I've talked before about my struggle with resting/recovering but I think I took it to a new level these last few weeks. … Continue reading Week in review-taper time!!
Ok and just like that, peak weak has come and gone. And if there was ever a great peak, this was it. You know that feeling when your legs are primed and your mental game is strong? That was me. Yes its a short short short training cycle but the positive side is that I … Continue reading Cleveland Half Marathon-Peak Week In Review!
This was by far the best week for running I've had in quite some time. It's like everything just clicked once I decided to run the Cleveland Half. The fact that my long runs have felt so great really underscores the idea that I am just meant for longer distances. It's clear to me when … Continue reading Cleveland Half Marathon Training Week in Review
As I wrote about last week, I decided to give half marathon training a whirl and dive into the Cleveland Half Marathon next month. If you've read my blog for a while, you know that I love the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon for a number of reasons! I've participated in it as both a spectator … Continue reading Cleveland Half Marathon Training Update…..And a Giveaway!!!
