The 2014 Nike Women’s Half SF Tiffany necklace.
Nike Women’s Half start line. New course = new course PR. Ready to get this party started! See you on the other side of 13.1! Good prep for 26.2 #20 in 3 weeks
Marathon Must Haves - 2014 Nike Women’s Half Edition. Red Athleta pants and red Gap breathe top. I feel like wearing all the fall colors. Supposed to be 60 for the race but you never know with SF. Looking forward to blue box #6!
Race week! This is my sixth run for the Tiffany box. My focus has been on the final stages marathon training (marathon 11/8) so this half marathon crept up on me. Last week I pushed the running volume so this week has been a recovery/quasi-taper week. My trainer and I have started to run every week outside of our training sessions, with me playing the role of her running coach. I love new running partners! This morning we ran 5 miles at a 9 pace. It felt much better than I expected after 4 miles + an hour or strength training last night. I look forward to seeing what pace I can push this weekend.
11 miles down, 9 to go. Quick pit stop. Wearing my Chicago Marathon hat for my friend Sharon who will run Chitown for the first time tomorrow! Let the crowds carry you through 26.2!!!!
Kept my positive outlook today despite an allergy attack that has kept me sneezing all day! It was hot this morning but I forced myself out there for 5 miles. The calendar says October but the weather in Los Angeles believes it is July. It will be hot for my long run on Saturday which has me rethinking my plan for 15 on the trails.
Tomorrow morning is my 5 year Spinnaversary double spin with reillysmith. Half a decade spinning with this guy. Where did the time go? Proud of how far I have come but I will save that for another post.
After two craptastic days of working day and night (with no workout), a solid 5 mi run at dusk tonight. Now I am headed to an hour of TRX with the trainer. So thankful I got a run in on Sunday! I am determined to make the most out of the rest of the week. I am choosing a positive attitude! Who is with me???
Sunrise over Santa Monica Mountains, Los Angeles. 8 miles on the trails at sunrise with Cheryl and 5 along the beach for 13 total. Gorgeous morning! Now headed to the office for the afternoon. Rough work week that continues into the weekend….
Return to the trails!!!!! 10 miles with Cheryl. It felt amazing to be up there again. I have missed it! Goal for the fall - at least one day a week on the trails. Now home for 5 more miles along the beach.
5 mile run followed by a double spin. To top it all off good news at work this morning! Happy Friday indeed!
