PDX Training: 6 Weeks To Go

I am most definitely in a funk right now, there is no denying that.  I thought being  funemployed would help get me into a running routine or at least make me excited to run since I could go run new places and not have to be anywhere after.  Instead it has caused me to have […]

A Giant Run

There are always times during marathon training where I doubt myself and question why on earth I am doing it.  I have a hard time getting out the door and finding motivation is hard to come by.  Since I am always very honest with my training on the blog I will confess that lately these […]

PDX Training: 7 Weeks To Go

Despite some obstacles this week (stubbing my toe, getting a migraine, and getting a couple blisters), I still managed to complete most of all of my runs and have a pretty good week!  There was definitely some shifting, but overall it worked for this week.  Monday rest Tuesday 9 GA (General Aerobic) team lemon run […]

Taking Control

I have always been fairly good at making my legs run the pace they are supposed to run on the day they are supposed to run it.  Tempo run?  Run fast legs! General Aerobic run?  Find your happy pace legs. Recovery run?  Time to slowwww it down. But for whatever reason lately, I have noticed […]

PDX Training: 8 Weeks To Go

I am going to count down backwards for the rest of my recaps until Portland!  Obviously I am a numbers person and with my training being all weird with having SFM in the middle, counting down just sounds better to me.  I know I am weird. As I mentioned on Friday, this week I struggled […]

Weekly Recap: SFM Recovery and PDX Week 1

I didn’t intend to use last week for as much recovery as I did, but I listened to my body and went with it.  My legs felt great after the race, but overall I was just exhausted.  Instead of running a lot, last week I slept a lot, was busy with other activities and just […]

SFM Training: Week 12

Well we all know how the marathon turned out, but what happened in the week leading up to it?  I actually did taper a little and just did easy runs at the end of the week.  It coincided well with a busy work/life schedule so I used the taper to my advantage, BUT the busy work/life […]

SFM Training: Week 11

I had a great week!  I ran every morning I wanted to, got all my planned runs in AND was gone pretty much the entire weekend for Page’s wedding!  It was a busy week to say the least, but one that I definitely feel good about. I planned on keeping my mileage pretty much the […]

SFM Training: Week 10

Subtitle: Maybe I am tapering after all. Whew another busy week!  My July’s just always seem to be that way.  I am trying REALLY hard to not stress myself out over mileage and missed workouts because I know getting stressed doesn’t do any good, but still I can’t help but just wish I was doing […]

SFM Training: Week 9

This weekend didn’t fully go as planned, but that seems to be the name of the game lately.  I remember the days when I would do every single training run on the day I planned to do it.  Always exactly on schedule, always in order… those days have been long gone!  I think it’s good […]
