Fatigue

Whew.  I have been experiencing some fatigue. I think it is related to the DARK dark, and the added workouts. I feel a lot better, more balanced, and put together.  In other words, I’m able now to THINK about the fact that my house is a bit of a wreck, I should wear more makeup …

Lighthouse Loop Race Report, in which I run, and more….

So on Sunday October 26th, I ran the Lighthouse Loop Half Marathon. This was one of those odd little B races.  I wanted to do it because I had missed it last year due to injury.  It is a pretty fast course with a smaller field. I love lighthouses.  If you look back though, my …

New experiences day.

Today I had on the schedule a 5K.  It’s a race I love. I didn’t do it. I had to practice with my open water relay team the Kayak thing. We are doing this awesome swim. As a relay, which means after about 2 miles each we have to get into the kayak from the …

Could it be?could it be?

That my legs have recovered from the torture I gave them recently. Seriously all that travel kind of screwed things up.  I really wonder exactly how Professional runners and other athletes deal with all the jet lag of travel before the big meets in Dubai etc.  I did not deal well with it at all. …

Let’s begin the build (again)

Here we go. Today I had a 12 mile run.  I ran, very very slowly on the Van Fleet Trail.  A friend of mine drove me out there and rode her bike.  I so appreciated her because she planted my fluids. Van Fleet has been called “The most Isolated Bike Trail ever”  And it really …

resting week

It is a rest week!  Wahoo! Love this painting by Dulac. Sunday I ran 5 very warm and sweat-soaked miles.  I’ve tried and tried to take pictures of the amount of sweat generated, the weight of the shirt, the dripping of liquid awesome from the shirts, but…to no avail…the photos just show a dark shirt… …

I’m an April fool!

Wow.  So training.  It’s become kind of regimented. This morning, April Fool’s Day…I awoke, looked at the workout, saw it was a Brick.  Proceeded to post on Facebook- WITH ILLUSTRATION- “Happy Wednesday, full of Camels and Bricks!”  Several people corrected me which I saw after the workout. I was first convinced it was Wednesday anyway….then …
