tempo run

I’ve been logging some pretty great mileage the last month or so! I can 100% say that it has made a huge difference in how this cycle of injections has gone. Both mentally and physically I’ve been in a better place. Not being able to exercise makes me feel like crap and that’s what I had to do at my previous Reproductive Doctor. Not only was I bloated from the meds, but from not being able to sweat. (TMI: and not being able to crap! exercising keeps me regular!) So this go around I’ve been in a much better place. […]

Happy Monday! This is going to be a busy week for me! I’ve got a lot going on at work and with doctors appointments and I’m ready to get the ball rolling! Here are some highlights from last week… Kara is obsessed with riding in the passenger seat of the car. She goes to the garage door and yells car! car! We just go around the neighborhood, but she sits the whole time and absolutely loves it! (she is wearing a diaper in the second pic- just for clarification) I know people loath the treadmill, but I love it! Maybe […]

Happy Monday!!! Here’s a rundown of my pretty great week/end… On Wednesday I had a hard workout on the plan and I killed it. I love comparing this training cycle to the last (which wasn’t that long ago) because the paces are getting faster ๐Ÿ™‚ On Friday I had another great run with Jolene. We never go out with a pace in mind, we just run and chat and see where we’re at <-a little rhyme for your Monday ๐Ÿ˜‰ Friday afternoon we decided to have dessert first and met up for an ice cream date! Kara even got a […]

HAPPY 6 YEAR ANNIVERSARY to Toddย and I! I don’t know what I would do without him! He is such an amazing father, husband and friend. I honestly don’t know what I would do without him, his love and support. I’m super lucky to have him by my side for the rest of my life <3 Love you baby! Now here’s a quick rundown of my week before the start of a new one! It started with an exciting text from one of my best friends… her water broke and her baby boy was on the way- almost 4 weeks early! […]

Happy Monday folks! Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for a fabulous week! Here’s a recap of last week… This kid and her wispy hair! She used to have such a full head of dark hair… not so much anymore. At least she’s still cute <3 Sometimes you just need help slowing down on those easy runs… this is when a friend who’s looking to you to get faster (like I do with Jolene) comes in handy. I help pace her to a faster time, which MAKES me slow down. Win-Win. Had dinner over at my parents […]

Let’s start with the beginning of last week. I caught this sweet moment and it made my heart melt. I changed the wallpaper on my phone to this image. Being Fierce is kinda my thing with the marathon. I killed my Wednesday tempo run! My mid week tempos on the treadmill have been the only thing keeping me positive during this training cycle. Hopefully this means in great weather I can really hit decent paces! During the week, we usually get to work around 6:15/30AM, which means that Kara is dropped off at daycare around 6 AM. On Fridays, I […]

It’s Taper Time!

WORKOUT Sunday: 5 easy + 3 @ tempo + 5 easy + 3 @ tempo + 2 easy Recap Below. Monday: 3 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill My shortest shake out run to date, haha. ****** As usual, the Florida weather was less than desirable. It was 70 degrees with 88% humidity at 6AM. Lovely. Because this was my last long run, I wanted to make it a strong one and be able to hit my paces, so I opted for another half and half run. My plan going into it was to adjust my 6:50 tempo pace to […]

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 […]

Half and Half

WORKOUT Saturday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill/ abs video x 2 Sunday: Recap Below. ****** I decided to try something new during this run and do half outside and half on the treadmill. I know I need miles on my feet outside and to be able to push myself through tough workouts, but at the same time, I also want the confidence of hitting my paces. Per Todd’s suggestion, I planned to do the first set of speed outside and the second set on the treadmill. Before I let for my run, I set up everything in our […]

I Spanked That Run!

WORKOUT Wednesday: 2E + (3 x 3m @ 6:50 pace w/ .5m recovery) + 2E on treadmill Recap below. Thursday: 6 miles @ 8:28 pace on treadmill/ Body Pump My glute was a tiny bit sore, but once I got going, I was good to go. BP was pumpalicious. I didn’t do the squats or lunges, though… gotta preserve my legs ๐Ÿ™‚ ****** OK. I know I’ve been saying it a lot lately, but I am so stoked about my treadmill speed workouts. I have been nailing them and am so excited. I know they will be much harder outside, […]
