  3. RUN
    good R2R in central park 3.01 mi 00:29 09:38 pace

    Lunges, pushes, plank then the lower loop of the park. I think I join the Army.

      The only thing more "fun" than doing those exercises in public is doing those exercises in public and having your coach post them on the Internet for the world to see! :) You look strong and happy, though!

  4. RUN
    blah 3 Bridges 20.63 mi 03:43 10:48 pace

    Mile 11-15 were rough and I was ready to quit. I regrouped and was able to run the last five. My time doesn't include the time at the water station. I feel like crap now.

      Thank you everyone for the support. Elizabeth I have had everything you said.. injuries, blisters, stomach. I keep dreaming that the marathon is easier then the training.

      Speaking of dreams...A friend of mine ran the Detroit Free Press Marathon on Sunday. Her dream was that the race was an obstacle course filled with "challenges" - one of them was performing a dance of choice. Hers was from Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video.

  7. RUN
    alright 5Bridges 15.7 mi 02:50 10:49 pace

    I do not recommend Brian's 5 bridges run after you have been fasting for 24 hours the day before. My quads were hurting and tight from mile 7 onward. I did not like the Manhattan Bridge runni... read more

      Yikes - I'm a bit nervous about the bridges and hills. Any suggestions?

      See Brian's tip on running the hills. If you haven't I would add some hills to the training to get some exposure. And remember when you make it to the top of the hill there is a downhill :).

    alright R2R -- Central Park 6 mi 01:04 10:40 pace

    Not my best...I was hurting...frustrated that 6 miles seemed tough after running 18 miles.

      I hate when that happens! What a difference a day can make - your next run will likely be much better :) You got the miles in - that's what counts! Nice job.

      Sounds like an adjustment day - your body's fixing itself up after the high mileage weeks and Saturday's race, so it can't give you 100% tonight. I'm sure you'll be back at it tomorrow!

      Thank you...the 18 miler was two weeks ago and then my body hit a wall and I didn't run much. It wasn't my breathing...it was my muscles. I look forward to meeting everyone.

  9. RUN
    good NYRR 18 miler tune-up 18.19 mi 03:17 10:49 pace

    Thank you to my team mate Briana Fitchner...Great runny buddy. Wouldn't mind being a little faster...but three Harlem hills will not be in the marathon.

  10. RUN
    good Central park -lower loop 4.75 mi 00:50 10:32 pace

    Pulled something in my thigh getting there, but surprisingly felt better running then walking or standing still. Now icing.

  11. RUN
    good R2R Little Red Lighthouse Run 17 mi 03:05 10:52 pace

    Rough in the beginning again better by mile 5-6. Not as bad though as the biker collision Jeff and I saw. THanks for the suppost Jeff, Ali and Liz. I ran home to get to 17.

  12. RUN
    good R2R Thursday run 7 mi 01:08 09:42 pace

    Don't ask me how I feel between mile 2.5-4. Better to ask me on mile 4.5-6. My pace picked up to a 9 min/mile. I must have felt good because I ran home and tacked on an extra mile.
