  1. RUN

    Ok, so , sad news. I think I'm going to have to back out of the marathon this year. I really don't feel ready to take on a marathon just yet. Also, Matt won't be able to be there to ... read more

  2. RUN
    alright 8 mi 01:46 13:15 pace

    This is the longest run I've done in awhile. I felt pretty good except for the fact that I need to figure out hydration. I felt SO thirsty but when I drank I felt heavy and sluggish when picki... read more

  6. RUN
    alright 2 mi 00:23 11:35 pace

    Suuuper hot and humid in DBQ today. We've been getting blasted with rain lately (9 in. in 24 hours!). Super short run today for me. We are preparing to leave town for Alicia & Eric's ... read more

  7. RUN
    great 3.8 mi 00:43 11:26 pace

    AWESOME run today. I felt great the whole time. It was not nearly as hot and humid as it has been and what a difference that made! I wish every run could be like this one.

    tired 7 mi 00:36 11.7mph pace

    Holy Hills! It was hot and humid and my body was having none of it.

  9. RUN
    good 4 mi 00:46 11:28 pace

    I was wanting to go a bit farther, but, it started raining. I was visiting my parents in Chicago last week and I forgot how much I LOVE running on flat land! Back to hills today and I actually felt... read more

  10. RUN
    good 5 mi 01:09 13:47 pace

    For the first time on a training run I went without my iPod. Here's what I think about that:

    Pros:
    - Much, much more in tune with my breathing. Really focused on doing belly breathing for eve... read more

  11. VELO
    great Cross Train 5.77 mi 00:36 9.7mph pace

    Little bit of cross training today. I wanted to see how far the trail by my house goes. I was a little disappointed to find out that it's only 2 miles long. Oh well, it should be great for sho... read more

    good 3.4 mi 00:41 11:58 pace

    Oops, I forgot to post this yesterday. I found this awesome trail about a mile from my house and I'm super pumped about it. I definitely adopted the Tamara attitude toward hills. Thanks T!

  13. RUN
    blah 2.45 mi 00:36 14:42 pace

    Whew. I'm a bit sore from yesterday, as to be expected. It is super sticky here and like an idiot I went out without water. Needless to say I was plenty parched after mile 1. I will not make t... read more

      Hydrate tons throughout the day and then plan your runs as mini loops and leave water at your house or with plenty of parks and trails with outdoor water fountains along the way. I've also stopped at many-a gas stations and drank from the faucet in the bathroom as well as used the facilities or cooled my head off in the faucet. I have yet to commit to a hydration pack/water bottle on runs as I have found with careful planning you can do it without the extra baggage.

      As for hills, I also struggled when we first moved and saw that if I didn't change my attitude how I felt on my runs wasn't going to change either. I started to view the hills as trying to hold me back, the hills were trying to push me to failure... which lead me to a "bring it!" type attitude. My mantra now (to quiet the voice in my head telling me to walk or turn around) is "fuck that! keep going!" Keep at it! You're very right, it will get easier with time! You can doooo it!!

      I personally adopted the Tamara "fuck that" attitude on my hill workout yesterday. I found it to be much easier to adopt than my previous mantras. Hang in there Steph!

    Well, this was my first run back after quite the hiatus. It went pretty well. Man, Dubuque is HILLY!!! I'm not hating my pace considering how many hills I climbed. I am going to have a major K... read more

      Keep it up! Your body will start to figure out the hills, give it time and take it easy. (Missouri is one hilly bitch, I feel ya!)
