Rest Month

Whenever I say that I'd like to spend a day on the couch watching Netflix and reading, Tim always tries to tell me that I'm incapable of doing such a thing. That I'd get too antsy. That I'm not actually as lazy as I think I am (actually, his exact words in this regard are... Continue Reading →

Off to the Races

Or, more accurately, back to the races. After taking a pretty significant break from racing—and running in general; apparently, I've become quite the fairweather runner in my "old age"—I got right back into the swing of things last Friday with the NHTI Delta Dental 5K in Concord. And when I say I got right back into... Continue Reading →

Not a Training Recap

"No recap this week," Doug half-asked, half-tsked at me as I sat and pouted about falling off the boulder for what seemed like the 43,874,295th time Saturday morning. "I know…" I started to sigh say before Tim chimed in with, "no time!" and changed the subject. While I appreciated Tim's recognition of how busy I've... Continue Reading →

NEHM Training: Week 7

I still don't know where all that motivation came from during Week 6, but it certainly didn't stick around very long. Week 7, while not totally terrible, saw me slip back into my standard half-hearted way of training and was my lowest mileage week yet (at least as far as running is concerned). Oops. Part...

NEHM Training: Week 6

Something semi-miraculous has happened: for the first time in a very long time, I actually completed an entire week of training! And almost exactly as planned! Go me!! Monday Plan: Rest or cross-train  |  Actual: Barre That Groupon I mentioned last week expired this Monday, so the plan was to just double up on classes... Continue Reading →

NEHM Training: Week 5

Throughout the first month of training, I had been pretty good about updating these recap posts on a daily basis—usually right after the workout while the details were still fresh in my mind—so that they'd be ready to publish on Monday. That ended in Week 5. (I can't decide if it happened sooner or later... Continue Reading →

NEHM Training: Week 4

If you'd asked me a month ago if I thought I would still be keeping up with these training recaps, I would have laughed at you so hard. But here we are. Four weeks in and I'm still staying on top of it. My biggest concern is that nobody actually cares how I'm training, but... Continue Reading →

NEHM Training: Week 3

Another successful week of training is in the books. In fact, Week 3 was arguably my most successful week so far! I didn't do every workout (no surprise there), but I only skipped one and, most importantly, I finally hit double-digit running mileage for the week, which hasn't happened in a VERY long time. So...
