Running and getting wet.

With the scare of the ab tweak… my swim/run/swim/run seems to have been dramatically shortened.   Took advantage of my manager and decided to go into work at 7, rather than 8 to get prepared for a meeting at 11 am.  As it turns out all the meeting prep that my manager seemed to feel …

Bob the Builder.

This was a tough week. Well, that would be the goal.  In addition to this goal, is a big lesson…. Trusting in the unseen. Heb 11:1 Now faith means that we are confident of what we hope for, convinced of what we do not see. This is something that I rather struggle with.  I’ve had …

Ugh Thursday.

Thursday’s Speed work was a total Wash.  a total total failure.  ah well.     I got to bed by 7:28.  Probably fell asleep by 8 or 8:30.  Slept like a total rock.  Woke up at 3:30 am,  snoozed around in the bed until 4:30. I admit this week has been tough.  At least 6 …

Week two of the build…and am I sick?

This week…is gonna be tough, but today was not hard at all. 1 mile run…  which I did in my Nike Lunar Fly’s- very comfy shoes, for short things… I did it on the treadmill…for one mile I just couldn’t see going outside in the 91 degree heat. I then hit the pool… 1000 yards …

Weekly wrap up.

OH MY GOODNESS. This week was NOT a rest week! WHEEEEEEE! It was a really tough week, but I feel like in general, I managed it well. Hoping it does reward me. Ran well on Monday and seemed to manage the stretching.  I think because I was really sore from the long run, the stretching …

Thursdays Fun.

You know..for a rest week…this is turning out to be kind of a busy one. Thursday had a 20 min bike ride, a 3 mile run with some pickups in it, and Weights. So, noting our fallish weather… temp 77 humidity 93%  I decided to get the run done in the morning in that delicious …

Rest Week Commences! (and wrap up from last week.) and life updates.

Today was the beginning of a rest week. It was feeling super cool outside this morning:  which means 75 DEGREES  and 99% humidity… Still with the 2 degree drop and the fact that the run was 1/2 of what it was last week, I felt pretty good. I ran pretty well overall.  I just do …

Living the weird life….

So… I feel like with this running thing…I’ve somehow re-entered high school again. I’m training for something.  (Currently I’m kind of in a holding pattern it’s true, but whatever, the coach has the master plan.) So, I’m not tapered, and I’m not always running super fast runs. As an example:  Saturday I biked 17 miles …
