Race Report: Sun Runner’s 10K Vero Beach, FL

I have not run a race in so long I’m having a hard time even writing my race report. Well.  Lets start off with saying Vero Beach, Fl…Sounds kind of like Viera…but isn’t the same.  I thought they were close. No, no they are not. So I signed up for this race, and only the …

Transition Tuesday Yet again

Yesterday was Transition Tuesday. It was a tough day at work.  I am feeling kind of exhausted and very concerned about how things are going at work.  Work lately dominates my mind, which is not a great thing.  But I do have one of those career things, rather than a “job”  so it’s kind of …

Wednesday…banished the grumpies.

Wow.  It was BRISK this morning. 38 degrees. I was pretty darn snug in my bed.   Seriously.  I felt like a toasty cinnamon bun.  I wanted to sleep more, but I was awake.  I had had a very realistic, yet insane dream and I spent my first 10 minutes of awake time, laying in …

End of Week Recap

What a FANTASTIC week of training. I really really had fun. This was probably due to lower miles, and being back in my home gym, but whatever. It was also a week of BIKE shopping. Whew, what a hassle. I shopped Craig’s List daily, several times daily when I wasn’t at work.  I looked all …

Home again Home again Jiggity Jig.

I found this past week to be a difficult one for exercise.  How did everyone else fare with exercise over the Holidays?  All the Travel, and Kids, and Food…and cold weather! I traveled to the frozen North to spend Christmas with my parents, my sister and her rather enormous extended family. (Upstairs Stockings/downstairs Tree)  My …

Coaching update.

I’ve been posting a ton lately, so folks I’m sorry.  This is in part, because I’ve been injured and just hanging around a lot and thinking a lot, so a lot of gibberish comes out here. Today though was CRAZY. I went to swim/spin.  I admit I wasn’t really in a super mood. It’s a …

Why I Luuurve working with a coach continuation of the injury saga.

So I have tweaked out my back.  It sucks a lot.  But, I’m actually feeling pretty lucky.  Why. Typically this is how a back injury works for folks.   You experience pain.  If it is only kind of severe, you self-treat with anti-inflammatories, heat and ice, rest…maybe Vodka if you are inclined! When that doesn’t …

Week in review.

Since Wednesday things have improved quite a bit. I was not feeling 100% well.  My legs were doing OK, but my mind was really in a bad place.  I knew this was all my deal, so I fought it tooth and nail, which is actually VERY hard to do.  There is a reason that depressed …

Who is the Coach?

What a week of lessons. I was really excited to run the Lighthouse Loop Half Marathon this Sunday.  I mean REALLY excited.  I have not raced in a long time.  I wanted to get out there and I wanted to see what I could do with a bit of rest.  The weather was slated to …

Speedy Friday

So rolled out of bed on Friday feeling really really concerned about the track workout. I have had a mental issue with the track workout since March. I was so freaked out by it last week that when it showed up on the plan, I took it to the treadmill. The TM workout went well, …
