Leaving On a Jet Plane…

Time: 41:10

Distance: 5.2 miles

Average Pace: 7:55 per mile

9 hours of glorious sleep last night. I passed out at 10 and woke up at 7. I am not sure how that happened but it felt great. The only problem with sleeping for a long time is that I felt really groggy when I woke up. Does that [...]

Going Bonkers!

Wednesday Run

Time: 1:01:51

Distance: 7.83 miles

Average Pace: 7:54 per mile

I decided to go ahead and skip my tempo run yesterday because I honestly didn’t see the point. The risk outweighed the reward in my opinion. I didn’t want to risk getting hurt four days before the race and there would be no gain in fitness. Taking it [...]

Close To Perfect

Finally some time to blog! My baked ziti is baking in the oven so I’ve got some time while it cooks. It seriously smells like Little Italy in here!

Time: 56:31

Distance: 7.2 miles

Average Pace: 7:51 per mile

Did I seriously just run for under an hour?

Today’s run was damn close to perfect. It would have been perfect if [...]

That is how you taper

I guess that is tapering right? I did run less than normal and I actually felt pretty good for most of the week. I guess it was more one of those “reduced mileage weeks” (what is that?). I can’t remember the last time [...]

Training For the Olympics!

Time: 1:06:29

Distance: 8.66 miles

Average Pace: 7:40 per mile

I slept in until 7 today! That is probably the latest I have slept all semester. It is actually kind of sad, but I am just so used to getting up early that it is hard for me to sleep in. My body is just like a clock. It [...]

The Taper Must Be Working!

I had a really good run today!

Time: 1:35:31

Distance: 12.26 miles

Average Pace: 7:47 per mile

I was expecting it to be terrible because I was hungry AND thirsty before heading out. I was going to eat something, but I totally forgot while I was getting ready. How does that happen? I guess I am just so used to [...]

Slow and Steady

Time: 1:08:53

Distance: 8.69 miles

Average Pace: 7:55 per mile

We had some storms last night and the weather was perfect this morning. 65 degrees, cloudy, and a nice breeze to keep me cool. I was a little worried at the beginning that it was going to start raining, but the clouds moved out and it ended up being [...]

Brrrr!

Time: 1:04:44

Distance: 8.2 miles

Average Pace: 7:48 per mile

Today’s run was much better

I think all your wonderful comments yesterday spurred some motivation deep down inside of me. Today I actually felt like I could run a marathon. That is I could have kept going this morning for another 18 miles. I am ready to get [...]

In A Funk

Time: 1:09:30

Distance: 9.05 miles

Average Pace: 7:41 per mile

Today was my first run of my taper. I wish that I could say it was enjoyable.

I got to sleep in a little bit today until about 6 o’clock because my first class of the day was canceled. Score! I am also pretty thankful for this because I was [...]
