Goal:

Cut some time off of my marathon PR (3:32:43) so I can improve my chances of registering for Boston 2015. It's great to say I "BQ'd" but I want to say I ran it!

    Ran a 5k with my mother and father-in-law against my better judgment (1 week out from the marathon) but I think I'll be ok. Pretty sure this is a PR AND 1st overall female! HUGE hill on first ... read more

  2. RUN
    Kirksville 9.14 mi 01:19 08:41 pace

    We're visiting the in-laws for Easter so I ran around Kirksville. Beautiful morning. Ran more hills than I would have liked but it was a good run.

  3. RUN
    C25K 2 mi

    This was my cooldown.. My friend Jenna usually teaches the couch to 5k program but she was out of town today so I filled in. The 2 miles were a combo of walk/run but mostly running. Fun times!

  4. RUN
    Speedwork 5.65 mi 00:47 08:23 pace

    I wasn't sure what I should do for speedwork being 9 days out from the marathon. I settled on 3x1600 and an 800. splits: 7:08, 6:47, 6:58, 3:21 for the 800m. NO CLUE how that middle mile was ... read more

  8. RUN
    Refuge 7.06 mi 01:03 08:53 pace

    Very windy and warm recovery run. Legs felt tired but I think this helped. Still fighting that damn cold! Got some more serious meds so hoping that does the trick.

    Yasso 800's 10 mi 01:29 08:54 pace

    Took a longer nap than expected so I found myself on a very crowded track zig-zagging between the outside and inside lanes. Overall a very good speed session. The workout: 1.1 mile warm, 10x800 wit... read more

      I was surprised by the distance! I figured 8 miles.. glad I did the math wrong because that would have overwhelmed me. Good news: I'm faster than most of the middle school runners but not so much the high schoolers...

    Cedar Grove 4.68 mi 00:41 08:48 pace

    I lay down for a nap after church and wake up feeling sick. Sore throat, achey body.. ugh. Took some meds and ran easy. Getting some extra sleep tonight and hopefully that will kick it!

    Although the word gets used far too much and has lost its meaning... this truly was EPIC!! This run raises money for the victims/survivors of the marathon bombings. It's a relay race from Cali... read more

    Pressed for time so rather than going to the gym, I did some home strength training and hopped on the mill for some easy miles.
