Space Coast Marathon

Oops! Missed My 1 Year Blog Anniversary

WORKOUT Saturday: 6 miles @ 8:15 pace on treadmill Sunday: Rest/ Kristin ran her first marathon! Monday: 4 miles @ 8:00 pace on treadmill/ Body Pump Tuesday: 6 miles @ 8:16 pace on treadmill/ Pilates ****** One year of blogging. What?! I crack myself up because I didn’t even realize it… it was yesterday, actually. The whole idea of creating a blog started when I trained my a** off to PR in the Tallahassee Marathon on Feb. 3, 2013, only to get injured and not be able to race. I needed an avenue to vent and Todd had just about […]

My Highlights from Space Coast

WORKOUT Saturday: 6 miles @ 8:30 pace on treadmill Sunday: 8 miles @ 8:12 pace on trail Both days I felt pretty good. Sunday’s run outside was a little tougher than usual, but certainly not hard by any means. I am still foam rolling like crazy. ****** I know everyone besides my fellow Floridian’s will hate me for saying this, but the heat and humidity are just killing me. We had a freakin record high of 84 this week. 84, people. It’s December and I’m running in shorts and a bra. I sweat my butt off walking my dog in […]

Friday 5, a Little Game and High 5!

WORKOUT Friday: 4 miles @ 8:32 pace on treadmill Well folks, I’m back at it. My first run since the marathon went well. Nothing is sore anymore, but I could feel my glute a bit, which isn’t a surprise. I AM sore from Body Pump yesterday though. The good kind of sore 🙂 ****** 1) I know I showed you guys the super cool medal from Space Coast, but I didn’t show you what else we got. This huge towel! I actually got 2 because I had to make a quick stop at the medical tent after the race for […]

Space Coast Marathon Recap

WORKOUT Monday: Rest. Lots of Riley Walking. Tuesday: Pilates. Walking. ****** Where to being? I think I’m going to tackle this recap from strictly a race standpoint for now and will delve into the rest of it in another post. So here we go… Thursday and Friday I made sure to increase my carb intake and get plenty of sleep. And it’s a good thing because Saturday night I didn’t sleep a wink. I saw the time at every hour of the night. I “woke up” at 4am Sunday and ate 3/4 of a bagel before getting ready and taking […]

Just a Quick Update

WORKOUT Sunday: 26.2 miles @ the Space Coast Marathon Mini Recap Below. ****** I think this sums it up… Official time= 3:18:43. Sigh. The Finisher’s Medal was huge… But the 3rd Place Woman Overall Award was even bigger 🙂 I’ll post a more in depth review of the race later. I’m just not ready yet. In short, I’m not happy with the race at all. Sure I got 3rd woman, but honestly, I’d rather have gotten 1000th woman and a PR instead. I’ll go into the reasoning for that at a later date, too. Thank you everyone for all the […]

Let’s Do This… Like A Boss!

WORKOUT Wednesday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill Thursday: 4 miles @ 8:26 pace on treadmill Friday: 4 miles @ 8:26 pace on treadmill Saturday: Rest ****** Well my friends, race weekend is here! Eeee! I am super pumped and just ready to freakin run! I think the hardest part of the taper is the fact that the work is done and all you have to do is wait. I am NOT good at waiting, haha. It gives me time to obsess about the little things, most of which are out of my control. Like the weather. Gotta love when […]

1 Week Until Blast Off!

WORKOUT Saturday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill Sunday: 12 miles @ 7:53 pace on trail Recap Below. ****** In case you forgot, or are a new reader, my next marathon is The Space Coast Marathon… one week from today, on December 1. The race is held in Cocoa Beach, FL, right across from the Kennedy Space center- hence the space theme and “blast off” in the post title. To say that I am nervous is an understatement. I mentioned in a post last week that I’ve been having negative thoughts. I’m the kind of person that has to […]

FINALLY a Decent Long Run

WORKOUT 16 miles @ 7:55 pace on trail Recap below. ****** I am VERY pleased with my run today, however, it did not start out on such a great note. Let me explain… I have always been a horrible sleeper. It’s hard for me to fall asleep and I wake to almost any noise. I’ve been this way since I was little (sorry mom and dad, and now Todd, haha). I usually go to bed about an hour before I actually want to BE asleep and read. Last night, I went to bed at 9 PM and began reading this […]

HRF Baby, Travel, and Running Update

WORKOUT Sunday: Rest Monday: Body Pump/ Body Flow I kicked my butt in Body Pump today. I added more weight than normal to really test myself. I didn’t do the squat or lunge sets, and instead planked the whole time. Not sure how long it was, but I was shaking at the end, haha. This was my first time taking Body Flow. It was a combo of Tai Chi and Yoga and was the perfect cool down/stretch sesh after BP. ****** SIIIIIIKE! That’s what we like to call a food baby here in the Winchell Household, haha. Last month I […]
