The North Face 50M: Week 10

This was my 3rd week in a row of building up my long runs and mileage.  I had to move a couple runs around, but overall was happy with the runs and mileage I got in.  Right on track! Monday rest I skipped out on my Monday yoga class to make sure I took a full […]

The North Face 50M: Week 9

We’re half way there! Monday 1 hour yoga I broke my rule this week of taking one complete rest day and did yoga on my non-run day.  This wasn’t a very leg intensive class and was just a lot of stretching.  I do not plan on making this a habit, but this week it just […]

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 […]

The North Face 50M: Week 4

After a cutback week last week, I was looking forward to upping the miles again.  It turned out to be a pretty busy week, and I ended up missing one of my runs.  I still had a solid week and got the important runs in, but this week was a reminder of the constant battle […]

Back to Base: Weeks 5 & 6

I have so many runs to catch up on, I don’t even know where to start!  I guess the best spot would be where I left off right? I spent the last 2 weeks before North Face 50 training officially started this week continuing to build up my base miles.  I was able to get […]

Back to Base: Week 4

After 3 weeks of increasing long runs and increasing total mileage, I decided to take a cut back by cutting my long run by a good chunk and taking down my overall mileage just a tad.  With real training just around the corner, I knew it was a good time to take advantage of a […]

Back to Base: Week 3

This was pretty much the best week ever for one reason: so much trail running!  5 out of 6 of my runs were done on trails.  4 out of 5 of those runs were in different parks.  It was so great!  I wish every week had this much trail running.  I am going to try […]

Back to Base: Week 2

My goal for July is to continue to build a strong base in my running before I start to dive into real training again.  I should probably talk about what the next big thing is on my racing calendar for 2012, because yes it has been decided, but I will get to that soon enough. […]
