That’s A Wrap: TNF50 Training Recap & Goals

This morning I went on my last run of this training cycle.  A simple 4 mile run that went by so fast, kind of like this training cycle did. 18 weeks ago, I started training for my 2nd 50 miler.  I used a similar plan to my first one, but I purposefully made it a […]

The North Face 50M: Week 13

With the dark mornings and evenings, I have really had to stick to road running during the week lately.  It works and I am still getting my mileage in, but I miss the trails!  My legs were a little cranky this week from all the pounding, but I think they are getting used to it.  […]

The North Face 50M: Weeks 11 & 12

The North Face 50M: Week 8

You know those weeks where you just feel overwhelmed by everything?  This was one of those weeks.  I was tired, stressed and anxiously trying to stay on top of everything on my to do list.  I had to say no to a couple things, re-prioritize and just stop being so dramatic in my head.  By […]

The North Face 50M: Week 7

Oops.  I am done with week 8, but gotta recap week 7 first! Week 7 was a cutback week for me.  It worked out well because it coincided with a trip to my parents house for my sister in law’s baby shower (I am going to be an aunt!).  Plus, after 3 weeks of building […]
