Last week’s workouts were all about recovery from the Seacoast Half Marathon.  I don’t have any other races lined up (except for the family Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving) for the rest of the year so all my miles are now just for fun. Monday Rest day Tuesday Morning Flow Yoga at Bending Bodhi was just […]

Last week’s workouts were kept mostly easy in anticipation of the Seacoast Half Marathon. It’s crazy that it’s been two years since I did a half (and 5 years since I ran this race) when for years the 13.1 distance was my jam. I’m rusty on racing (and rusty in racing in general) those so […]

Last week’s workouts saw one negative and one positive. The negative? My plantar fascia flared up again after my run on Thursday.  I was hobbling around for most of the day afterwards. The positive? I gave my heel extra attention, took two days off in a row from running, and I was able to crank […]

Last week’s workouts were back on track. Well, not actually ON a track but back to normal after the flu-like virus I had the previous week. A few years ago I the track grew on me now I shudder at running on it.  Isn’t it funny how our likes ebb and flow? Monday 5 mile […]

Last week’s workouts started off strong and then went south on Wednesday.  It never fails that I get ill every October.  Hopefully, this is just a small blip and I’ll be feeling healthy again soon.

Last week’s workouts were my first in half marathon training. Yes, that’s right.  I’m running the Seacoast Half in November.  I haven’t run a half in 2 years so I have zero expectations.  One of my BRF’s, Kyle, had been talking about running her first half so I said I’d train and run the whole […]

Last week’s workouts saw another step in returning to running post PF.  I was able to bump up my mileage and run back to back days.  Way back in early September I was hoping to run a race over the weekend but with both kids having sports at the same time on Sunday, it wasn’t […]

Last week’s workouts had me feeling good.  I was able to get two runs on trails, I increased my long run distance with no PF talking back to me, and I made it to my yoga studio twice.

Last week’s workouts were all about running with friends, having fun and testing the PF (plantar fasciitis) waters . Monday Rest day It was our last day of camping and I briefly had a thought of running later in the day after we got home.  But then I got caught up in putting all the […]

Last week’s workouts weren’t entirely what I planned but it showed me things are moving in the right direction in terms of my plantar fasciitis. Over the long Labor Day weekend, we went camping and I had full intention of getting in at least one or two trail runs.  But those runs never happened.  Every […]

Last week’s workouts had me feeling a little bit of a spark that’s been missing in the past month.  My plantar fasciitis is improving (a lot!) and the humidity has decreased.  Things are looking up!  So much so that I started to think that I might actually be able to run some of the races […]

I think my runner card would be cut up if I didn’t first acknowledge the heat and humidity of last week’s workouts.   It was gross, swampy and excessive. But I’m not complaining. I may be struggling for air while a 9:30 pace feels like a sub 8, but I know that this is temporary.  Running […]

It was another round of heat and humidity for last week’s workouts. I feel like I’ve talked more about the weather than anything else lately.  Which made me start to wonder – Do you think runner’s talk more about food or the weather?  I really think it might be a 50/50 tie. Maybe bathroom/digestive habits […]

Last week’s workouts were off. Off as in, not as how I had planned. But that’s life!  So I rolled with the punches and did what I could with what I had.  I didn’t freak out about it.  It felt kind of nice to do something different.  And it actually is probably a blessing in […]

Last week’s workouts were stupid hot and humid.  I’m not complaining BUT…it was a little much when you are sweating just getting dressed for your run. Have you tried putting on a sports bra when you are sweaty?  It’s almost as awkward as trying to get it off! Thankfully, things dialed back by the end […]

Last week’s workouts had me feeling blah…still. I’m not sure why but I slipped into a running funk.  No races sound exciting.  No distances sound intriguing.  I’m still running but I don’t have this burning desire to run hard or to push myself.  Isn’t that odd considering I spent the majority of 2017 wishing I […]

You want to be a faster runner. You’ve increased your time running. You’ve increased the distance you are running. That’s one of the easiest ways to get faster as you build strength and endurance. But running the same speed for every single run is not doing anything in getting your fix for the need for […]

Last week’s workouts were all about welcoming summer back.  Or at least for a few days before spring returned.  Or finally decided to show up?  I’m so confused by the weather. Monday it was 50 degrees.  Wednesday, 94 degrees.  Sunday 60 degrees and raining.  Is it spring?  Is it summer?  I don’t care as long […]
