  1. Feeling motivated! Bring it on 2015!

  2. RUN
    good Day 1 C25K 1.6 mi 27:00

    Wow, daily mile. It has been a while... just getting back into things starting c25k.

  3. RUN
    alright Downtown Grand Haven 1.75 mi 00:23 13:24 pace

    Tired and a little sore. Didn't really feel like running but knew I needed to get something in.

  4. RUN
    good Downtown Grand Haven 2.6 mi 00:35 13:25 pace

    Feels good to be back at it.

  5. RUN
    good Downtown Grand Haven 2.3 mi 00:29 12:46 pace

    Who would have thought that my first run back would be 2.3 miles? Pretty proud about that. Still recovering from my hip injury (who knows what happened...severe pain...) from about 3 months ago and... read more

  6. RUN
    blah to the Gh state park 2.03 mi 00:24 11:56 pace

    Ran with a friend. Felt awful bc it was much faster than my usual pace plus it was hot.. pushed through.

  7. RUN
    injured tm 3 mi 00:39 13:00 pace

      That happens with my knees sometimes too! Weird. Sometimes, if I run at a nice slow, steady pace, it actually seems to help. Nice job getting in the 3 miles (low motivation or not!) :)

  8. RUN
    alright Out and Back 4.52 mi 00:57 12:33 pace

    5 min warm up, 4 mile run, 2 min cool down... wasn't hardly running at the end so cut the cool down a bit short. Still walking a bit, wishing I didn't have to.

      You'll get there, just keep putting miles behind you and before you know it the walking will fade!

  9. QUESTION-- For distance training, is it better to push myself as far as I can run without stopping? Or to keep adding on distance even though I do a walk/run/walk/run type pattern?

    • Cat B.

      I'm NO expert and still quite a newbie, but my initial thought is that it depends what your goal is. The long run is meant to get your body used to being on your feet and moving for a long time. So there is really no shame in a walk/run, slow pace, especially for much higher mileage. But if you are working on honing a race pace for a particular distance, maybe the walking isn't beneficial. I would avoid pushing the pace on your long runs in any fashion though or you'll wear yourself down.

      Ok that is what I thought but wasn't sure. I have no goal for pace... my goal is to finish alive! And I feel like mentally, the only way I can make it thru long runs right now is knowing I can walk for a few seconds when I need to.

      For what it's worth, the long runs that I "allow" myself to walk often end up with a faster average pace than the ones where I force myself to run the entire time. I don't know if it's mental or what. For me, there is this fine line between knowing when to push myself and knowing when I just need a quick breather. :)

  10. NEEDING ADVICE -- I planned to do a half marathon 7 weeks from yesterday. As you can see, my mileage is not where it needs to be. I need some advice on where to go with my training, specifically ho... read more

      consistency is your friend... plan your runs out weekly and stick to the plan. run 2-3 on monday, tues rest, run 2-3 on wed, run 2-3 on thurs, fri rest, then on saturdays go a bit longer like 5 miles. do this for a couple weeks then bump up the weekly runs to something like 3-4miles and your long sat run to 6-7. i think that if you can build your weeks up to a 10 mile long run on the weekend, you will be able to finish the half no problem. just remember to dial it way back down a week before to rest.

      Thanks! That helps a lot! I am "okay" with the thought of walking some during the race, just not 5-10 miles worth! I totally agree that if I get to 10 miles, I can do 13 on race day. The motivation of the crowd always gets me. I have 7 weeks to work my hardest.

      I used this to train for the 5th/3rd Riverbank Run. Maybe it can help you too.
