Tempos, Carved Pumpkins, and a Championship!

WORKOUT Wednesday: 6 easy + (6 x .85m @ 6:50 w/ .15 recovery) + 2 easy= 14 total on trail Recap Below. Thursday: 6 miles @ 8:24 pace on treadmill/ Weights at home ****** I was 50/50 on weather or not I wanted to run this outside… ya, that’s right, I wrote weather. Last night the meteorologist on the news said that it was going to be “soupy” out Wednesday morning. JUST what a runner wants to hear. I knew I had the option of running this on the treadmill, but really wanted to test my legs since my race […]

Halloween Treats of the Past

WORKOUT Tuesday: 6 miles @ 8:25 pace on treadmill/ Pilates I was expecting some delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) after my 22 miler Sunday, but everything is feeling pretty darn good… except for my right shin. It was a little tight on my run yesterday and this morning so I’ve been icing it and it feels a bit better. I’m hoping it holds up OK and doesn’t get worse on my 14 mile speed tomorrow. ****** This year for Halloween, I’m not doing much. No super fun parties or dressing up in costume. So, I thought it might be fun […]

Another Awesome Long Run in the Books!

WORKOUT Sunday: 2 easy + (4 x .85m @ 6:50 w/ .15m rest) + 10 easy + (4 x .85m @ 6:50 w/ .15m rest) + 2 easy Recap Below Monday: 6 miles @ 8:30 pace on treadmill/ Body Pump Finally, a Monday I’m not in Orlando for work and was able to make it to BP. Also has a nice little shake out run. ****** BOOM! My quality runs have been rocking lately! The weather has finally been in my favor and I took full advantage of it. (Sadly, this cold front will be gone by Thursday. Bummer.) I was […]

Stood Up, Fun Friday and a FeMale Model

WORKOUT Friday: 14 miles @ 8:13 pace on trail This run was perfect. Due to the cooler weather, I was able to sleep in a bit and started at 8am. This was my first run in temps below 65 and it felt amazing. To top if off, I got to run a little over a mile with my sister 🙂 Awesomeness. Saturday: 6 miles @ 8:26 on treadmill/ abs video x 2, weights at home Nice and easy recovery run, followed by some at home gym time. ****** Ever make “loose” plans with someone to hang out in a week […]

Eats Latley

WORKOUT Tuesday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill Wednesday: 2 easy + (3 miles @ 6:44) + 3 easy + (3 miles @ 6:42) + 3 easy= 14 total on treadmill Another great tempo run in the books. I should have done both tempos at 6:40/42, but aired on the side of caution so that I could complete the run. I always do that and look back thinking I could have done better. Of course, that only applies on treadmill runs. Outside, I always follow the pace on my plan because it’s hard enough outside as it is. I […]

My Birthday Lunch Compliments of Kristin

WORKOUT Monday: 4 miles @ 8:22 pace on treadmill/ Abs Easy recovery run. Everything felt good. No soreness here! ****** Happy Birthday to me! I had a nice, low key birthday weekend. I am a few years shy of 30 years old now and Todd asked me how it felt to be old… I told him, “I dunno, I’m not 30 yet!” (He’s just over 30) Bazinga! After my run yesterday I headed over to my sister’s for a homemade birthday lunch. Upon arrival, I was pretty darn hungry. I’m always a bottomless pit on long run days and seem […]

Ahhh the Changes Fall (DOESN’T) Bring

WORKOUT Saturday:  6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill Had a nice and easy run, followed by some yard work and a Riley walk. Not a bad little Saturday. Sunday: 2 easy + 12 @ marathon pace + 2 easy on trail Recap Below. ****** Can a girl catch a freaking break?! This was early this morning… not 3:30am (the time is never right) but significantly before 6am… Really? It’s the end of October and as the weather man said, “we are experiencing August, summer-like temperatures.” Lovely. I thought the birthday/running God’s would shine down and give me a break…. […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies!

WORKOUT Friday: 10 miles @ 8:01 pace on trail Let me just start off by saying that I am WAY too into running, haha. I saw my sister about 6 miles into my run and she said she nailed her run (2 x 15min at marathon pace). She had the biggest smile on her face and it really pumped me up! So much so, that I negative split my run from an 8:08 average pace when I saw her, to an 8:01 avg pace in the end. Who get’s a runner’s high off of someone ELSE’s awesome run?! This girl. […]

My Poor Toe, Lucky Riley, Flatbread, Chocolate

WORKOUT Wednesday: 2 warm up + (6 x 1200s @ 6:44 w/ .25 rest) + 2 cool down on treadmill Recap Below. Thursday: 6 miles @ 8:20 on treadmill/ Body Pump ****** I was 50/50 on whether or not to do this run on the treadmill or test myself and try it outside. The deciding factor was Riley. I was meeting my cousin and her new baby up for lunch and knew I wouldn’t have time to run AND get Ry out for a decent walk, so I figured, why not take her for a run during my cool down?! […]

How to Fuel Your Run

WORKOUT Monday: 4 miles @ 8:26 pace on treadmill Just an easy recovery run. Everything felt pretty good, except for a little blister I had on the top of my toe. Tuesday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill/ Pilates Easy Peasy recovery run. ****** I have a number of friends that have caught the running bug and are training for their first half and full marathons. You don’t know how much this excites me! Like REALLY excites me. My long lost partner in crime Erica (she moved to Georgia) text me the other day asking about when to start […]
