    good New strength routine with coach 00:45

    My coach and I met today and worked on a new strength routine. He likes to first talk with me about what I liked and disliked from our last one and then we build it together. While this is not th... read more

    good Fantastic Friday Run 6 mi

    50 degrees and sunny...yes please! The colors of the trees in the neighborhood are getting more and more vibrant! I love it! So pretty!

    good Neighborhood run 5 mi

    This is sort of odd because I'm a stats person and like numbers so when I'm running without my watch, I don't have a lot to say! Ha! I felt good today again. I can tell my body is... read more

    My goodness are we having beautiful fall weather here or what? I continued my watchless week and just enjoyed the 5 miles.

  6. RUN
    good Neighborhood run 4 mi

    All my runs are easy this week as I'm recovering from my half on Sunday and then will prepare for my last race of the year which is a 5K on November 5th. I'm going to try to run without ... read more

    blah IMT Des Moines Half Marathon 13.1 mi 01:38 07:27 pace

    Tough day at the office for the half. I went in with a goal of 1:33 (7:08 ish pace average) and, on paper, all of my workouts pointed to the fact that I was capable of running it. It became appar... read more

      That's a great time in tough conditions. Humidity gets me more than anything else, and it's hard to let go of a goal when a factor you can't control (weather) has such a big effect. You'll get that faster race time someday soon!

      Thanks Susie! I think it snuck up on me because it didn't feel hot and I don't think I consumed the water I should have. I learned a lot and am happy and proud that I persevered and that will help me in my next races. I'm determined to reach my goal and definitely want to run this one again next year when conditions will not likely be like this and I can give a fair assessment of this new course.

    good Strength workout 00:45

    No running today and instead my coach had me meet with him to do a very easy strength workout and stretching.

  11. RUN
    good Recovery Run 5 mi 00:41 08:11 pace

    Yesterday's speedwork made it easy to run easy today. My legs were tight so it was all about just getting them loosened up.

  12. RUN
    good 2x1200 / 3x 800 / 4 x30 strides 6 mi

    This was my one and only speed workout this week since I have the IMT Half on Sunday. It was tough but I did exactly what I needed to. Goal pace for the 1200s and 800s was 6:30s and the strides w... read more

    I just took it easy today and got the miles in. It's race week so not going to push too much. I have one speed workout tomorrow and then it's low easy mileage the rest of the week. I&#... read more

    Boy were my legs tight after last night's speedwork! It was perfect weather (for me anyway) 45 degrees, sunny and no wind. It did take me a bit to get warmed up. I didn't push this run... read more

      Thanks JJ! Susie, it looks like it will be mid 50s on Sunday morning. Works for me! Stephanie, I'm not exactly excited about the change, especially the hill late, but I'm trying to reserve my thoughts until I actually run it. I just loved the old course.

    good Neighborhood out and back 5 mi 00:41 08:10 pace

    I needed to try to get this in before the thunderstorm and I got back and just stepped through my door when it started to pour. Apparently I timed it perfectly. :)

  18. RUN
    good Treadmill run 6 mi 00:48 07:58 pace

    Due to work stuff I had to get this in on the treadmill. My back was a bit tight this morning but other than that this run went well. I have a massage and adjustment on Friday so that ought to help.
