Resolute Running

So. I sort of did something crazy and definitely out of the norm. I hired a running coach. I know me and how I operate (it’s a gift of having known myself for 29 years) and if left to my own devices, I would jump back into running with both feet… which is hard to […]

Back in the Saddle… Again?

I swear I’m not intentionally holding out on y’all on the foot thing. I just sort of forgot to update the blog on it. Oops. So, I ended up going to physical therapy a couple of weeks ago and she gave me lots of stretches and told me to ice it twice a day and […]

Injured Reserve List.

Have you ever done something and continued to do something that you know isn’t good for you, but yet are in complete denial about? For the past 5-6 weeks, I have continued to run on an injury that I know I needed to let rest. My ankle has been sore and hard to walk on […]

Tuesday Training

  44 miles for the week?! Oof. It was mostly bike though. Monday was my normal swim plus spin at 5:15.. yes. That means I am in the pool by 4:45AM, y’all. That’s kind of insane. Wednesday I biked with Donnie and Shannon. Friday I ran. Saturday, another bike ride that was cut short when […]

Keepin’ It Real.

I feel the need to Keep It Real, folks. When my training ramps up, it’s all I can do to keep the laundry done. So, let’s just forget the rest of the house. Now, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE a clean house. Everything organized and put away and in it’s place. But, after wrangling […]

Training Tuesday

My Training this past week wasn’t too hot.. Monday and Tuesday being at the hospital with Grandpa wasn’t great for it. I spin class on Wednesday, ran Thursday… should have gotten on the bike on Friday and didn’t. Ran Saturday and should’ve swam and biked on Sunday, but it just didn’t work out.. sometimes, being […]

Training Tuesday’s

  Man.. I really stepped up my training this week. I probably covered more miles this week than I did the rest of June. Saturday morning, I got up with the chickens, and drove to Birmingham to run 7 miles with the Birmingham Track Club again… I am super jealous of the group runs! I […]

Training Tuesday

  As you may recall, I was in a bit of a training funk, so I tried to see if getting out of my comfort zone would help. I ventured to Birmingham, to attend the Birmingham Track Club‘s social. They have a massive running group, with well over 1,000 members. I may not be a […]

Training Funk.

It’s official. I am in a training funk. I’ve been trying to keep on keepin’ on and push through and hope that helps. It hasn’t. I’ve continued to race and sign up for races and hope I get excited about it. I haven’t. I’ve allowed myself to make excuses to skip runs. Sure, my runs […]

Inadvertent Secrets.

I have been inadvertently keeping a secret. Not to be mean or to be withholding. But simply because, life has just been straight up crazy lately. Here goes… I’ve been training for a triathlon. It’s Saturday. It’s a sprint tri and one I did last year, which was it’s inaugural event. I think it’s a […]
