  1. RUN
    good testing the legs 3 mi 00:37 12:09 pace

    Trying to see if my legs want to run. They did alright... The half marathon on Saturday is basically all downhill, so that will help.

    good sunrise yoga 00:30

    I opted out of my run to do some yoga outside while the sun came up. I'm still in recovery mode after these last couple of weeks.

    good recovery spin 10.14 mi 01:05 06:24 pace

    Easy breezy recovery spin. My legs are angry after all that steep down hill.

  7. RUN
    good Ragnar leg 3 4.54 mi 00:53 11:44 pace

    Last leg of Ragnar, hot again. This time, it was straight downhill for 3 miles. And I mean STRAIGHT downhill. The first mile was fun and then my quads were on fire. The next mile hurt a lot. The mi... read more

    good Ragnar leg 2 6 mi 01:04 10:43 pace

    Leg two, in the wee hours of the morning. I've never run 6 miles so fast in my life. It was basically all downhill, it was cold, and I had to pee sooooo bad. Those things combined make for som... read more

  9. RUN
    good Ragnar leg 1 3.07 mi 00:37 12:09 pace

    Leg one, right in the heat of the day on Friday. I'm pleased with the pace, because it was pretty darn warm.

  10. RUN
    good test run 2 mi 00:25 12:30 pace

    The first mile felt a little iffy, but then things started to feel nice and warm. So I'll probably survive Ragnar this weekend... probably.

    A tough boxing session at the gym tonight. Phew. My legs are feeling decent, so I may try a run tomorrow morning...

    good Bear Lake Marathon, day 3 26.26 mi 07:56 18:07 pace

    Well, I finished the trifecta, which is what I set out to do. Tomorrow's race is off my schedule now, and I'm good with it. It was an unofficial one anyway. Three marathons in three days ... read more

      I just now got to check in on you. I'm so happy for you that you finished these 3 in a row! That's super impressive, Heather. I really think the down time in between events makes them that much harder as your body stiffens up so much. Well done!

    good Bear Lake marathons, day 2 26.26 mi 07:26 16:58 pace

    good Bear Lake Marathon, day 1 26.39 mi 07:22 16:44 pace

    So day one of my quadruple marathon didn't go all that well, obviously. My feet hurt so much, but for some reason, my mental state was positive the whole time. I think it's because there&... read more

    In just two days I'll have completed the squat challenge! This is the first challenge that I've ever made it through.

    good taper run 10 mi 02:05 12:28 pace

    It is SO hilarious that I'm tapering. Tapering from what? My super lazy months of barely doing anything? Bear Lake is going to kill me.
