  1. RUN
    good Treadmill 6 mi 00:48 08:01 pace

    This should be it for treadmill runs for a while. My legs felt a little sore from last night's lifting but once I got a few miles in, things rolled along. Bring on the warm weather!

    good Strength work 00:45

    I didn't get to my strength work at all last week with not feeling so hot and the Relays, but I was back at it tonight. I'm sure I'll be feeling it tomorrow.

  3. RUN
    good Treadmill run 6 mi 00:48 08:01 pace

    I felt really good on this run this morning. I stuck to the treadmill for another day just to be safe. Since the wet and colder weather is heading out, I should be outside again mid-week!

  4. RUN
    good Neighborhood + treadmill run 11 mi 01:26 07:47 pace

    Since I'm still dealing with bronchitis and need to limit my time out in this damp, cold weather, I ran 6 miles outside and 5 inside. I'm thrilled to have averaged 7:47 between the two a... read more

      Thanks, Stephanie! I honestly feel pretty good. I had some tightness in my chest earlier in the week, but that's completely gone. I still have some coughing issues at moments but if I am running inside where it's warm, I'm fine.

  5. RUN
    good Treadmill run 4 mi 00:33 08:09 pace

    I was on the treadmill again because my lungs wouldn't do well in the cold weather due to my bronchitis. So I watched some news and now it's off to the Relays!

  6. RUN
    good Treadmill run 5 mi 00:42 08:19 pace

    So I went to the doctor and found out that I've had bronchitis. She told me I could keep running but needed to take it easy. She also suggested I run indoors since the cold, rainy weather wo... read more

  7. RUN
    good Recovery run 5 mi 00:43 08:35 pace

    I ran on the treadmill since it was thunderstorming. I was pretty tired and muscles were a bit tight after last night's Grand Blue Mile but not terrible.

    great Grand Blue Mile 1 mi 00:05:51 05:50 pace

    I earned myself a shiny new 3+ second PR tonight! My goal was sub 5:50 so I got SO CLOSE! I'm very happy with how I ran tonight despite going out a bit on the speedy side to start. When I look... read more

      What a great attitude!! I'm always afraid of the mile as it so often makes you continually question your effort and you have to manage it so perfectly. Well done!! Nice catch to back off versus blowing up!

      Thanks, Paul! I think that is what is so intriguing to me. The mile is a race distance that requires such strategic execution. I feel like it exercises the mental and the physical.

  9. RUN
    good Neighborhood run 4 mi 00:33 08:13 pace

    This run felt good. I wasn't trying to do anything but just put in some miles. Tomorrow is my mile race so I need to be ready.

  10. RUN
    good Recovery run 5.55 mi 00:50 08:57 pace

    I changed things up and did a run with my friend while she rode her bike this afternoon in Water Works Park. She blasted Prince music and we chatted and rocked out. Fun!

      So much of this is mental and whether we want to accept it or not--sometimes overthinking the upcoming workout and really mess with you. Thank goodness you're in a good spot with your conditioning and be able to just rock it out even when you're not feeling it! Nice one!

      Thanks everyone! I was happy with the pace for sure. Paul you are right on when you mention conditioning. It's pretty incredible what can allow a person to overcome.
