  1. RUN
    good Get Out! 5 mi 00:59 11:48 pace

    Alleluia! A midday run OUTSIDE at work! First time I've done this since working at JAX. I had 5 miles on the books and I just couldn't bear to do it on a TM. I checked the weather last ni... read more

  2. RUN
    good Week 3, Run 1 3.5 mi 00:39 11:11 pace

    TM run in the middle of my work day. Did my usual slow start and then ramped it up to a 10 min/mile pace for the last 5 minutes.

  3. RUN
    good Spring-y 5 mi 00:59 11:53 pace

    Gorgeous morning - blue skies, bright sun and in the low 40s! I ate some quinoa with lunch yesterday and had part of a cupcake at dinner. Both did trigger flushes of heat within about 10 minutes of... read more

      Such a tough balance with carbs and runs. I'm still figuring it out. I'm taking in way fewer carbs (esp the simple kind), and doing with less gu during workouts... but still seeking the magic balance. I DO think that Ellie's method (0-1 c carbs breakfast, 1-2 c lunch, 2-3 c dinner) has merit in terms of the whole cortisol thing, as well as giving you reserves for morning runs. Hmmm...

    alright Week 2, Run 4 4 mi 00:46 11:36 pace

    Upside of this run was that it was with Melissa. Downside was that it was supposed to be at pace and it was not even close. I need to figure out the food thing. I feel great with my current eating ... read more

      I'm catching up to this original post... about the fueling issues. I hate that it's complicated for you! I'm not saying it's been easy for me... and can't really compare since I've been doing HRT- which automatically has a lower carb demand. Thinking thinking thinking

  5. RUN
    good Week 2, Day 3 3 mi 00:33 10:50 pace

    Started slowly (12+ min/mile) and added speed bit by bit, with the last 5 minutes at a 9:40 /mile. Thought I'd be fried from yesterday but I felt solid throughout. DOR tomorrow!!

  6. RUN
    tired @Pace = @Gasp 4 mi 00:44 11:01 pace

    Oh sweet cracker. This was a HARD run for me. Conditions weren't ideal: I'd worked extra hard with a double workout yesterday afternoon, so less than 24 hours to recover. Plus a visit fro... read more

    Tacked a TM run on after doing the monthly boot camp team challenge at work. Whew! Running after a bunch of box jumps and wall sits and planks is hard. I started very slowly and eased into a not-qu... read more

    good Sunday Runday 4 mi

    This plan has runs on Sat and Sun. So back-to-back weekend runs it is. Melissa and I did this one together. Roads are still packed with a layer of snow but it was 12 degrees and no wind, so decent ... read more

    good Yakkety Yak 3 mi 00:39 13:00 pace

    Had every reason to bag this run (1 degree, snow and ice on the roads, tired legs) but I did it anyway. And I'm glad I did. I wore my yak trax and just kept a nice steady slow pace the entire ... read more

    good Week 1, Run 3 3 mi 00:32 10:42 pace

    Same exact pace as Tuesday's TM run. (and same exact TM!) The best part about TM boredom is that it inspires me to go faster. My intentions of taking it easy on this run were trumped by boredo... read more

    good Week 1, Run 2 4 mi 00:52 12:57 pace

    Sat back and took it easy on the pace today. Yesterday's double dip of step aerobics and TM run felt like an great workout, but I don't want to push my legs too hard, esp. as I ease back ... read more

  12. RUN
    good TM 3 3 mi 00:32 10:42 pace

    Starting a new training plan because I'm going to sign up for a 15K in the spring. Feels good to get back on the structure wagon.

    good Moving on up. To the East Side. 4 mi

    Did this run with Melissa. Decided not to wear a watch. I just wanted to go but I feel and I had a feeling I'd be pretty tired. I worked all day yesterday in Connecticut and then drove 6 1/2 h... read more

      Good question. I think it would be hard unless you work on "good carb" ing up? Either way, you are doing great things. Xo

      Ah, technical difficulties! Nice paces there! Jealous of your sunshine. I feel like SLC has been co opted into the Pacific Northwest this winter.
