18 Miles…. BOOM!


So, my long run for the week was 18 miles – longer than I have ever run before! I have to admit, I was a wee bit nervous about it. I logically knew (or at least was pretty sure) that

Last night was a procrastinating night.  I knew my rest-days were over, and I had a 3 mile run on the books.  That’s it, only a 3 miler.  Well I kept finding reasons to put it off.  I spent some

Running for cake


BIRTHDAYS!!!!!!  Always a fun, fun time… Joy, Presents, Cake and… Calories! So, with that in mind, I planned ahead (how uncharacteristic of me!)  and got a run in before dinner.  Not far, as there was a time constraint – but

Never sore where you think


Last night I hit my bowflex for a nice workout. My thought is that by swapping days of running and lifting, I give my Plantar Fasciitis a chance to heal (in theory), while working on the upper body/core that I

Running and Rolling


So, my last couple of posts have glossed over any training – while focusing on my fundraiser/giveaway.  Rest assured, I have still been working on my training! Last night, I went out for an easy 3ish miles (I accidentally gypped
