What I did this week by Mizunogirl

I had kind of a bang up week. Monday I ran 3.5 miles.  It was supposed to be a “conversation Pace run”.  I admit, I went out there and everything was feeling pretty good, I ran a really hilly route, and found Amazingly that all the hills were not as hard as I remembered them. …

over train/Under train…

Saw Skeletor briefly on Wednesday. I’ve been a good little Do-Be  and have just been doing the workouts as written and not asking any questions.   I’ve been able to maintain good focus on the sessions, and am about half way to where I should be on Nutrition.  My Massage Therapist tried to give me …

Weighty weights

I did my “weights only” day today.  I kind of cheated, but I think the coach would not care. My work schedule is changing for the next two weeks to this hideous early hour and juggling to make sure I do not incur Overtime. So I made it to the gym at 0515 am. I …

Falling in Love

With RUNNING. Yeah, I imagine you my loyal 7 readers were excited to see that I was falling in love, but…Sorry, no Wedding bells here.  I really probably am doomed to singledom forever.  Not that bad, not that great, but it’s a very safe way to be. But RUNNING. I did my track workout last …

I heart Skeletor

Well, heart may be a strong word.  I am feeling very secure in this coaching arrangement. I sent Skeletor a message regarding my disaster.  I tried to keep it to the point and to not give tons of excuses. I mean, it is what I did.  We can all think of so many races that …

Turtle Krawl 2012…and exercise in humility.

Wow.  I had my worst race in quite a while yesterday.  Oh the humiliation. This race is a good race, put on out by the beach in Indialantic, Florida.   I ran it 2 years ago.  Last year I missed.  This year the T shirt was too good to give up… So, I roped 4 …

Pre-Race jitters.

UGH. I have not had pre-race jitters in forever. I have a measly little 5K tomorrow.  Thing is, Skeletor wants to see what I can lay down. I felt ok about it, until I went to the track today for some Pick ups. My right calf started to hurt like crazy and be very tight …

Whoa Nelly

Well. I saw Skeletor today.   I handed him a wad of actual cash (forgot my checkbook).  He handily threw it under some papers in an in box as if he did not want to touch it.  (I mean the man has pockets.). I would like to apologize for calling Skeletor “Skeletor”.  I did not …
