  1. RUN
    alright Neighbor(ing)hood Run 3 mi 00:31 10:27 pace

    It is stupid humid out there. I warmed up with jumping rope, ran my miles, then finished up with jumping rope. I'm on a quest to see how the jump rope can improve my fitness--ok and lets be re... read more

  2. FIT
    good Magazine Monday Workout 00:15:00

    I picked a core workout using a medicine ball out of a magazine. Talk about yeeeeouch!

  3. FIT
    good Jumping rope 00:10:00

    grabbed my jump rope and hit the driveway just to get my heart rate up-even though it was a rest day.

  4. RUN
    good Run around the airfield 6.3 mi 01:19 12:31 pace

    Did a nice 4:1 run/walk. My legs are pretty tired after yesterday's 5 mile run. I'm slowly building my base after 2 months off.

  5. RUN
    good Stupid Early Run 5 mi 00:51 10:12 pace

    Met up with some new running friends for an early run. 5 miles flew by and I was mostly pain free. Looking good for the first week of OBX 26.2 training. :) #fitfluential

      That would be amazing! David's gma will watch him for those dates. I don't think he'd enjoy the drive over there anyway lol. And I would be more than happy to split costs for the room! Annnnd it would be so nice to be with peeps who already know about this marathon business because I've never run an event this big! Let me know for sure!

    good Home workout 00:30

    did 10 minutes of jumping rope (it's my new thing) and a 20 min workout with the Reebok Dual Grip Core Ball (50% off at Target!!). It was a good workout for sure.

  7. RUN
    good Run 1 mi 00:10:00 10:00 pace

    I was excited to run but turned back because I didn't want to get struck by lightening. It's best to live to run another day. :)

  8. swim
    great Swim 1000 m 00:31 49:53 pace

    back in the pool!! Definitely lost all my conditioning over the last 10 months. but it felt great to be back in the water!

  9. Being injured is for the birds. Wish I could will my knee better. Got in a lot faster than expected for an MRI...hope to have some answers this week so I can get on the mend and back to the road. I... read more

      I'm sorry... being injured sucks so bad when you just want to get out there and do your thing.

      I understand... I haven't run in 4-5 weeks...doing yoga, weights and walking 1-3 miles, and PT work to strengthen my quads. I have "jumper's knee." This is great running weather...grrrrrr! Hang in there...try to find something else you also love to do in the mean time. This shall pass. :)

      Thanks everyone! You never really know how valuable and essential body parts are until they are rendered useless...I mean there just isn't much I can do without my aggravating my knee. No swimming, no biking, no walking, no elliptical, no yoga...upper body weights is about it. I need to sweat people... =)

    alright Pope gym 00:35

    Worked out with a trainer who absolutely destroyed my arms. And I don't mean in a good way. I have not been able to move them since Wednesday. I may have actually pulled my right tricep. Not c... read more

  11. RUN
    injured Big Sur 20 mi 04:15 12:45 pace

    Showed up with BIG expectations and left in the shag wagon. =( No fun being injured...no fun at all. Especially when you go from East Coast to West with one goal-complete 26.2.

  12. RUN
    good Neighborhood run 3 mi 00:30 09:54 pace

    Short run to break in the new shoes.

  13. RUN
    alright 20 miler! 20.01 mi 03:52 11:35 pace

    this was a tough run. Around mile 16 it got real rough. My knee started hurting, which stinks. We saw a creep snake that made me "scream like a girl" and nearly jump into Jessica's a... read more

  14. RUN
    alright Long run 16 mi 03:00 11:15 pace

    I have no idea how long it actually took. My garmin froze at mile 11. Has that ever happened to you? Was supposed to go 20 but my hip and knee were hurting pretty bad. One more chance next weekend ... read more

  15. RUN
    good Long Run 16 mi 02:53 10:47 pace

    Longest run of this marathon training cycle! It went much better than last weeks 11 that should have been 16 but was cut to 13 and ended at 11. Does that make sense? In other words last week was a ... read more

      Very happy to get it done!!! Thanks guys!!!
      And YES! It did feel faster than that, at times. I know I stopped the garmin at the gate but I think I think I left it going when I got water. but really we pretty much ran the whole thing. And no tripping or falling to blame it on this time either.

  16. RUN
    alright Evening run 3 mi 00:30 10:00 pace

  17. RUN
    alright Long run cut short 11 mi 01:54 10:22 pace

    cut from 16 to 13 to 11. Better than nothing I guess.

  18. RUN
    alright I ran 3 mi 00:29 09:38 pace

    I ran. It was muggy and windy. But I ran.

  19. RUN
    good Trail run 9.58 mi 01:46 11:03 pace

    Fun trail run! Fell twice and laughed at myself. Was supposed to be 9 miles but we got a little lost.
