Marathon Day!!!

Monday, October 14, 2013      2 comments

Well, been a month almost since my last entry. Was a hard month with my training lacking and the fact that I couldn't seem to master a 20 mile run before the race. This fact worried me considerably. I got lots of encouragement from family and fr... Read more

Marathon Training - Week 20

Sunday, September 15, 2013      1 comments

I feel like I was beat up today. I had a horrible night sleep and my hip acting up so my 20 mile run today was more like 14 miles. Ugh. I was not a happy camper about that. The entire run felt just bad from the word go! I kept pushing in hopes t... Read more

Marathon Training- Weeks 18 & 19

Wednesday, September 11, 2013      1 comments

I was very much looking forward to my 20 mile run. I am not sure how I have been able to keep up with these increases since my training hasn't actually been text book. Or, followed too closely to the plan. But, I somehow have been able to. I thi... Read more

Marathon Training - Weeks 16 &17

Sunday, August 25, 2013      2 comments

I hate set backs. Ugh. After my last long run, getting my training in through the week was challenging. Then, Saturday hit and my back began to spasm. I was in so much pain just walking. So, I didn't do the shorter run scheduled for last Sunday ... Read more

Marathon Training - Weeks 14 & 15

Tuesday, August 13, 2013      0 comments

Had to write for both weeks because I missed last week and for good reason, I didn't run. I had a car accident and was letting my body rest before stressing it with a run. So, two weeks off and it didn't do me good but I did manage to get my run... Read more

Marathon Training - Week 13

Tuesday, July 30, 2013      0 comments

Well, I am a few days late on this entry but, better late than never. It wasn't a bad week for training. Got a good run in during the week, some swimming, and I got my long run of 14 miles in on Sunday. I felt good through the whole run, until t... Read more

Marathon Training - Week 12

Sunday, July 21, 2013      0 comments

Well, a very nothing week for training. The humidity and the heat wave was too much. I mean, it just sapped the energy out of you just walking to the car from the front door. :P Now, last week with the pulled hamstring I had decided to take it e... Read more

Marathon Training - Week 11

Sunday, July 14, 2013      0 comments

So, a slow week for training. We did have a dry day but I woke up with a sinus headache so didn't get out for a run on the only best day of running this week. I did get my 12 mile run in today though. It was tough during the second half and I co... Read more

Marathon Training - Week 10

Sunday, July 07, 2013      0 comments

Well, it would be nice if the weather was better for this training. Two weeks running now of heat and humidity and no relief in sight. The only thing I keep telling myself is that with training in this weather, running in October ought to be a l... Read more

Marathon Training - Week 9

Sunday, June 30, 2013      0 comments

So, the week began okay, but still having a hard time working in the training runs with this humidity so strong. So, I did get a run in but not as long as I wanted because the weather just did me in. So, I decided that people do run in this, so ... Read more

Marathon Training - Week 8

Sunday, June 23, 2013      0 comments

So, not a bad week. I did get some training in though not all of it due to my schedule being thrown off with my car out of commission. Needed a ride to work so getting the full runs in was difficult. I ordered new shoes as the last ones I got di... Read more

Marathon Training - Week 7

Sunday, June 16, 2013      0 comments

So, not a bad week though I didn't do all my training runs. I need to work on that more especially with the increase in my long runs on Sundays. Used my new shoes today on my run but I can tell they aren't going to be the shoes for the race. Tri... Read more

So, the week didn't go too bad. I managed a short run on Tuesday though it should have been 4 miles, I only got 2 1/2 done. I did do 4 miles on Wednesday. No run on Thur, Fri or Sat. But todays long run was very good and I completed 7 miles. Yay... Read more

Marathon Training - Week 5

Sunday, June 02, 2013      0 comments

Well, I started out the week pretty good with a run on Tuesday of 4 miles, but, with the first heat wave of the season this week, that is where it stopped. I tried to go out on Thursday and lasted 1/4 mile and walked some before going home. Disa... Read more

Marathon Training - Week 4

Monday, May 27, 2013      0 comments

So, a real bust of a week. Bad weather, and no motivation. Life threw me a curve ball and I it hit me hard. Spent the weekend in PA enjoying family time. Got some renewed energy. This weeks long run was a repeat of last week so I don't feel like... Read more
