22 miles, Cake, a Special Drawing and Thank You

WORKOUT Sunday: 22 miles @ 7:53 pace on trail Recap Below. ****** I’m sure you’re sick of hearing it, but I just can’t get over the weather this fall. It’s freakin November 10th and at 4:30am it was 69 degrees. Are you kidding me?! Sure… we’ve had a few cold fronts, but they only last a few days and BAM the heat is back. The high today was 85. I know it doesn’t help that I read all these blogs and FB status about cool weather, long sleeves, fall leaves, warm soup and gloves, but come on. UGH. Ok… enough […]

Candy Corn M&M’s

WORKOUT Friday: 8 miles @ 8:25ish pace Recap below. Saturday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill/ Weights at home ****** Have I ever told you how spoiled Riley is? Even if we do call her our Trash Dog, she’s still one lucky pup. I try and get her out for a 2 mile walk every day. She’s a 60lb dog and has a lot of energy to get out! Welllll, I had a busy day planned for Friday and didn’t have time to give her a proper walk AND myself a proper run. So I did another half and […]

70 Mile Weeks are Getting to Me

WORKOUT Wednesday: 4 easy + 3 @ 6:50 + 4 easy + 3 @ 6:50 + 2 easy= 16 on trail Recap below. Thursday: 6 miles @ 8:28 on treadmill/ Body Pump My legs were definitely a little sore. During BP I didn’t do any of the leg sections… I don’t need to be any more sore than I already am! ****** Before I recap my run, I heard on exciting news today… The FDA is looking to BAN the use of Trans Fats! Woot woot! Check out a write up about HERE in the New York Times. I know […]

I Threw Up in my Mouth a Little

WORKOUT Monday: 6 miles @ 8:19 pace outside in Orlando *Update* I wrote in yesterday’s post that I did 4 on the treadmill because that’s what I had planned on doing and published the post before I ran. Well my friends, things changed. Read why below đŸ™‚ Tuesday: 6 miles @ 8:26 pace on treadmill/ Pilates ****** No seriously, I threw up in my mouth a little… DURING my run. Disgusting. This may be TMI, but it’s real life people and I’m not holding anything back! Let me rewind a bit… I was in Orlando for work Monday and Tuesday. […]

My Last Pace Run

WORKOUT Sunday: 2 miles easy + 15 miles @ marathon pace + 2 miles easy= 19 miles on trail Actual- 2 @ 8:20 + 15 @ 7:07 + 2 @ 8:10 Recap Below. Monday: 4 miles @ 8:25 pace on treadmill ****** The marathon is a month away and I had my last marathon pace run Sunday. In the past, I’ve treated this run like it was a marathon, and this time was no different. I ate more carbs than normal Saturday, switching some of usual protein and fat calories to carbohydrates. I made my “Macaroni Grill- like” Rosemary Bread and […]

Fatigue, Post Halloween-ness and Healthy Chocolate?

WORKOUT Friday: 10 miles @ 8:11 pace on trail Recap Below. Saturday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill/ weights at home I usually go to Body Pump Sat mornings, but I have a 15 mile pace run tomorrow and since my legs are already fatigued, I figured a lighter weight sesh at home would be better. ****** The weather here is still crappy (although a cold front is coming through today) and Friday’s run was blah. It was 72 degrees and 90 % humidity. UGH, I’m so over the grossness. I’m now a month out from my marathon and […]
