Slow as molasses long run done!!!! Thanks to Abby for slogging it out with me.
Next weekend will mark 8 years of running. When I began training for the LA marathon in July 2006, I did not know it would change my life. I have run every week for 8 years. That is a total miracle. Anything is possible!!!!!
What should I do to celebrate? Maybe post running pictures from every year??? Some of the early running outfits are pretty bad.
The good news is I ran into a couple of my original running buddies from the LA LEGGERS running club. The bad new is I made it 5 miles before calling it quits on the long run. After 8 years of running, you would think I would know better than to jump right in with heat training. I plan to run another 8 this evening at dusk when the sun is low and a bit cooler. In the meantime, I am headed to the spa for a massage and pedicure. Hopefully that will put me in the right state of mind. Happy Sunday!
Longer midweek run for the win despite major DOMs from TRX with the trainer last night. I think she made me do a million squats. This run started out too fast and I barely made it through the first mile. I pulled back and took it easy the rest of the way. I think I may actually make it through 15 on Saturday (fingers crossed). Tomorrow mini brick session before the celebration begins.
Coming back from illness is a reminder to be grateful for your health. This 4.75 (4.2 + .56 cool down) was tough. I have to push out a long run this weekend and based on the run this morning I am going to need to take it slow. Hopefully as the week progresses things will get easier.
8 weeks to the Santa Rosa Marathon! After weeks of illness, I am finally feeling better and ready to get back to running. I have some catch up to do but at least I ran the 40 miler in April and have a base.
Also good news, I got into the San Francisco Nike Women’s Half. I am looking forward to it!
So far my marathon training cycle has gone nowhere. Its time to find my long run mojo for 26.2 at the end of August. Right now I am recovering from a flu like illness. Good times!
Last week: 14 miles run over 3 runs, 3 x spin class, 2 x 1 hr strength training.
This week: get better and find some miles!
4 miles along the beach while the sun began to set. Great to catch up with my running partner Rae who is coming back from injury. Tomorrow - double spin and run. It had been a while since my last double spin with reillysmith and I’ve missed it!
Posting this here as reminder to breathe and go with the flow. On Saturday my trip to Ojai was canceled (no metric century ride) and that was okay. Instead I walked down to the ocean. It was so healing! Thanks ironphenix for the suggestion.
Today I was back to my normally scheduled workouts. 3 mile run followed by an hour of TRX with the trainer.
I went to bed at 12:30AM last night and woke up at 5:15AM to run some early morning miles. I wanted to run 7 mi but only had time to run 4.25 mi. I fought for every mile. Today was another tough day but I made it through. Is it the weekend yet?
