The first time I have run over 13.1 since the Napa marathon in March. Felt pretty good! Thanks to Abby and Rae for the company.
12 miles through Santa Monica with Abby. Her last long run before the San Diego marathon in 2 weeks. Enjoying my role as coach. Now headed home for another 4 miles along the beach. 16 miles FTW!!!!
Once upon a time I used to wake up to meet my pals for a 5AM 7 mile tempo run (almost) every Tuesday. I honestly cannot remember the last time I woke up to meet them. January? February? Hard to say. The good news is that I woke up this morning at 4:15 for the 5:15 start time. I am happy to report that I survived. But.. OUCH! I forgot how much it hurts to push myself up and down the hills.
Double spin with Reilly followed by 4 miles of heat training in Griffith Park with my friend Abby. The sun was oppressive on the trails and I cursed myself for putting my body through this today. I still have no idea what I am training for but certainly a 70.3 or marathon. We will see what happens.
The last two weeks were intense. I took yesterday and today “off”, meaning I was not in the office but still checked email and took phone calls. I need to bring a bit more balance to my life and hope to do that over the next few months.
In the meantime, I have put in strong training sessions. I took Monday off to recover from the half marathon + 10 hour work day that followed it on Sunday. Tuesday 4 mi easy, Wed 1 hr TRX am, 1 hr spin + 4 mi run pm, Thurs rest, Friday am spin, pm spin, Saturday planned 40 mi training ride and maybe a couple of miles of running. All in all, a good week. Time to add some swimming to the mix!
Happy Friday tumblrs!
Ready to run!!!
Marathon must haves: OC Half Edition. It’s been a while since I have not worn pink for a race. This blue outfit spoke to me so its what I chose for tomorrow. Blue is the new pink - at least for the OC half.
6 early morning miles at half marathon race pace. Pacing my friend at the OC Half marathon next weekend. Feeling the urge to up the mileage. Another marathon soon??
11.84 Miles in the OC. Thank you to Lindsay for inviting us down to preview to OC Half course. 12ish miles in 1:39:44. The course runs along the top the cliffs in distance and loops back around. Gorgeous morning!
New kicks! After a year in Saucony, I am going back to the tried and true New Balance. Sorry Saucony - it is not you, it’s me.
