    blah 3.38 mi 00:35 10:17 pace

    Sometimes I think about silly things while I run. I sing songs or craft poems. Sometimes I think about really serious things. About my future or my job or my personal relationships. Today a thought... read more

    I ran my first 1.67 in 15:17...That's a 9:09 pace!!! What!?

    Slowed down a bit towards the end. But considering how tired my legs felt to begin with I'm pretty stoked with this turnout.

    Well, it wasn't EXACTLY what I was planning. It was a little warmer and I was a little slower. THOSE HILLS....stupid hills. I wanted to try and get in 5.5 but I started later than I wanted and... read more

    Easy 40 minute shake out at the gym last night. Going to see if I can pull off a LSD today. I'm excited to run!

    Quick run before yoga. I havent quite figured out how to balance the two yet. It sees backwards to run after yoga because then I have to stretch again afterwards. But if I run before then I punk ou... read more

    Lost my daylight hors so I hit the gym for some easy treadmill miles. Wanted to go further....but no no....STICK TO THE CODE!

    Snow run!! So fun. The roads were ridiculously slippery but I found I had better traction when running then when walking. As with all signs of snow in the south, the whole city has shut down, so it... read more

    Okay! I have been pain free in my feet for 3 weeks now!! I have been keeping myself slightly satisfied with yoga. And though yoga is challenging and exciting... Ive missed running. So I am going to... read more

  12. Figured out why my feet ached every morning! I think I have a touch of the PF. Never had it before so I figured it was just because I stand for 12+ hours a day. It started before I was getting back... read more

      Order up or swing by REI and get a Foot Rubz (hidden in the sock section). Helped my PF (along w/ yoga stretching) immensely.

      Good luck! The golf ball trick always works for me- although it's not really a golf ball, it's a golf ball sized ball covered with little massager nubs. It's the same thing Rgbytrtl mentioned.

    Cold weather magic!! Long day at work but I really couldn't pass up the weather. The heat and humidity finally broke and it was cool and breezy and PERFECT running weather!

    These were my plans at 9! Well, sort of. The show I'm working on right now premiered tonight. Sleepy Hollow!! But I don't have cable...or a TV... so I decided to use the TV at the gym! An... read more

    good Treadmill 2 mi 00:20 09:57 pace

    Kicked it at the end to get it under 20:00 :D Didn't have much time to squeeze everything in today since I had plans at 9pm. But I managed to also get in some arm and core work.

    HARD fought. It was a little warm out there. My face was radioactive red by the end (cute, amirite?) I came up with a pretty great metaphor while I was out there. Stick with me here. At this curren... read more

      The Jenga metaphor works for lots of stuff, and it works here. Nice run!

      Heh, I love the metaphor!! You know, I didn't see any injuries until my second marathon training cycle, and now I know that i have to be careful - but that first time, it was like I was invincible!

      It makes sence. And maybe so, because I have noted some of my most enlightening moments have come during or after long or strenuous runs like this one. Love it!

    I haven't been running lately, but I haven't been just sitting on the couch. Behold! Pisgah National Forest, John Rock! I hiked 13 miles that day. Hiking is my new crush.

  18. RUN
    good Treadmill 2 mi

    Went to the gym after work. Hoped on the treadmill for a couple miles before doing the core work. It's a good thing I have no social life. Headed to bed and then back to work at 10 AM.

    I have work today from 1pm to 3ish AM. So I figured if I wanted an outside run I'd better get up early. And I did! Still plan on going to the gym tonight (tomorrow morning?) but I really need ... read more

      Oh just that the only races I've ever run have been all COMPETITIVE so I'm not sure what to expect! I just have to make sure to be all in the fun moment, that's all. :)
