Marathon training Day 75. The worst Long run ever

I have to admit, this was not the worst long run ever.  I’ve had worse 20 milers.  This one was special though. I had to take a day off work this week to make up for my Sunday at work.  So I took Friday.  Whoo Hoo 3 day weekend.  And I decided to knock the …

Oh My how time has flown.  I have been at a conference in Ohio and was too tired to post.  Once i got over being tired, I was in misery and shock over the Boston Marathon situation.  Breaks my heart. So this will be a short catch up post about the STUFF I have done. …

Marathon training Day 67

LOL.  I was typing this and thinking, “Oh I am getting behind on my charting”  It would be that way, as I am always going to be a nurse. Anyway.  MTD 67 was a one hour swim. It was a GLORIOUS day. The water was COLD, the air was HOT.  I didn’t swim too fast, …

Marathon training day 63

Long run.  15 miles one hour spin, about 12.3 miles. So, I was feeling pretty good when I started out for the long run.  I had some lingering tired feelings but, I think loads of us feel tired on the weekends.  I maybe more than others, because I actually have to get up earlier on …

Marathon Training Day 37

Today called for 1 hr and 15 minute Swim or Cycle. I was stoked about last weeks miles, 102 total!  This was fueled mostly by my not getting in the pool and instead cycling all my Pool or spin workouts. While the miles were great looking… I think swimming may be better for me for …

Marathon Training Day 18

This was not a very exciting day for me in training.  I had the option to swim for an hour or pool run for an hour. Since pool running on Monday was pretty tough…I decided to stick with the regular swimming, kind of my least favorite exercise ever. It was an uneventful swim. I had …

MTD 6

ooph. Today was a day full of craziness at work.  I feel really good about work lately.  My only problem has been having to deal with a very irate surgeon and wanting him to you know, follow Hospital policy. Lucky me, I got support from Admin on it.  🙂 So today was a Miserable Loathsome …

Marathon Training Day 3.

Well, i kind of messed up this day. Last night I could not sleep.  I mean really couldn’t sleep.  Sadly when this happens to me…it causes a bit of anxiety…which means I then really can’t sleep!   I have a fairly heavy training schedule, and my job has been stressing me out.  So the not …

Marathon training Day one. Half Marathon training Day one.

Yes…its time.  I started my training out today.  Yesterday I was very irritable, and shared my irritability with a variety of persons…not my best moments, but…I suppose it had to do with a few things. 1. I don’t have a plan, but I have an inkling that the plan I get is going to be …

And things just got REALLY really real

This was the first week of full on training after being ill.   It was GREAT. It involved a wee bit more swimming than I would have liked. I did not look like Mr cool hedgehog here. Work got crazy, as it has a tendency to do these days, so I also ended up doing …
