Weekend Update

WORKOUT Sunday: 6 miles @ 8:25 pace on treadmill Nice little shake out run. My glute was a bit tight, but felt OK after warming up. Monday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill I’m in Orlando again for work and I’ll tell you what, the treadmills at the Hyatt are nice, but nothing beats my dear tready at home πŸ™‚ My glute is almost 100% (knock on wood) so I kept my run to 6 miles instead of the usual Monday 8 and at a recovery pace. ****** Saturday was not only my long run, but my cousin’s baby […]

Alarm Clocks & A Summer Dealio

WORKOUT 16 miles @ 7:54 pace on trail I made sure to roll out my glute and do extra dynamic stretching this morning before my run and it seemed to help. I’ll probably take it easy the next few days in hopes it gets even better. I just really look forward to my long runs πŸ™‚ ****** I was happy when I woke up this morning to 75 degrees and 92% humidity. No, really. I was. It rained all afternoon and evening (or prevening as Sheldon Cooper would call it… any Big Bang Theory fans?) yesterday and I was expecting […]

7/11 Slurpeeeeeees

WORKOUT Thursday: 6 miles @ 8:25 pace on treadmill My right glute was still a little tight, but not hurting. After 2 days of rest, I was more than ready to run!!! I love running πŸ™‚ Friday: 4 miles @ 8:25 pace on treadmill My glute is STILL freakin tight. Ugh. I ran Riley outside for 1 mile and finished off my run on the tready. ****** I consider yesterday a mini holiday. Go ahead, make fun of me, but I love celebrating 7/11 by going to as many 7-Eleven stores as I can and getting a free Slurpee. I […]

Lunch On Limoges

WORKOUT Β Rest/ Weights My glute was feeling much better, but to play it safe, I took another day off. I was going to do Body Pump but since half of that class is squats and lunges (working my glute), I decided to stick with only upper body/core for today πŸ™‚ ****** Todd’s mom has been wanting to try this lunch place, Lunch On Limoges, in Dade City for a while now. For those of you not familiar with Tampa and it’s surrounding areas, Dade City is about an hour and a half from Tampa. They are closed on Sundays and […]

Tangent Tuesday

WORKOUT Monday: 8 miles @ 8:14 pace on trail I was successful in keeping it easy outside today. I tend to run my easy runs outside faster than I should. I try to keep my easy/recovery pace between 8:15-8:30. This is easy to do on the treadmill because I can set it and forget it. Outside, I start out slow, but as I warm up- or should I say loosen up, as I’m “warm” the second I step outside, haha- I get into a rhythm and just go. Maybe it had something to do with my tight right glute, but […]

Another 26.2 Convert :)

WORKOUT 6 miles @ 8:25 pace on treadmill Just an easy shake out run after my 16 miler yesterday. My knee has been creeping up a bit- no bueno! My right glute has also been sore and I’m not really sure why… I noticed it Monday in Orlando. I’ll have to monitor the situation closely. ****** I just have to give a quick shout out to my girl Erica… she has made the leap to the dark side and is training for her first marathon πŸ™‚ She’ll be running in the Disney World marathon come January 12th and I couldn’t […]

Silly Saturday Run

WORKOUT 16 miles @ 7:50ish pace on trail Running date with Marissa!!! ****** I love running with friends! Especially speedy Marissa πŸ™‚ We both like to do our long runs between a 7:45-8:00 pace, so it works out perfectly when she’s in town! We both live about 2 miles from the trail and our plan was to leave our houses at 5:30am and meet up wherever we crossed paths. My usual routine is to get up an hour and a half before I run, eat something small (couple pieces of toast or cream of wheat) to keep me from being […]

Red, White and Blue

WORKOUT Thursday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill/ Body Pump BP was changed to 8:30am because of July 4th, so I ran after and I must say I prefer to run before. I almost wasn’t able to get into class because it was full. I was 4th on the waiting list! Luckily for me, those people didn’t show πŸ™‚ Friday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill Easy Peasy 6 miles on the tready. I still need a name for him/her… ****** RED: Pizza sauce! Most people BBQ on the 4th of July, but we had hoagie roll pizzas! […]

Riley the Trash Dog

WORKOUT Tuesday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill Wednesday: 8 miles @ 7:54 pace on trail I wore my neon orange shoes, bright blue shorts and neon pink sports bra… I was THAT obnoxious girl, haha, you couldn’t miss me! My run was good though. Thankfully it was pretty cloudy out so the sun didn’t kill me πŸ™‚ ****** Riley is a spoiled pup! But what pet isn’t? She gets a 2 mile walk a day, unlimited belly rubs, and treats and “toys” galore.Β She LOVES her walks and tries to catch lizards (and sometimes squirrels) every chance she gets. […]

Packages on My Front Porch

WORKOUT 8 miles @ 8:14 pace on Hyatt’s treadmill I am in Orlando for work and got my run in once I got back to the hotel. It was super annoying though because after 60 minutes it switched to “cool down” mode. So for the last 5ish minutes I was literally hitting the increase speed button every minute or so. I am seriously so spoiled with my tready at home… I’ve done 20 miles on that bad boy without a hiccup. Anywho… everything felt great and I’m excited to get home to my man and dogter tomorrow πŸ™‚ ****** Speaking […]
