  1. RUN
    alright Treadmill 6 mi 00:49 08:09 pace

    The motivation was there, but physically I was glad today was an easy day. A little tired and my stomach was a little "meh". No biggie. Miles in the bank, 47 days.

    Tempo tomorrow!

  2. FIT
    good Core & Upper Body 00:30

    Stretching and rolling followed by core with medicine ball and a few upper body exercises with free motion machines.

  3. RUN
    good Treadmill 8 mi 01:05 08:09 pace

    Treadmill miles after work. The woman on the treadmill next to me smelled ridiculously bad. Perfume + alcohol + sweat + cigarettes. .. What I assume a brothel would smell like. I wanted to vomit... read more

      Eww. I ran past some neighborhood kids playing in the yard yesterday and I knew they were smoking, I could smell it from the road. So yucky. It is even worse to smell someone inside a gym, when you cannot just run past. It looks like you had a great run, at least!

      OMG, I think the smell of perfume over cigarettes is the smell that will give me a headache the fastest in life...can't imagine trying to run next to that, gross! Glad she left and you could finish in peace!

    good Elliptical 6 mi 00:50 08:20 pace

  6. RUN
    good LFSD 22 mi 03:00 08:11 pace

    I did as I was told today. I stuck to the plan verbatim. No excessively challenging terrain (coach vetoed the route I planned, with 2k gain), and stick to pace plan between 8-8:30. So I ran all ... read more

    good Sunny Saturday 6 mi 00:45 07:29 pace

    Heat wave! Sunny & 75. Just kidding, Sunny and 20 but a girl can dream. Got outside for some easy afternoon miles hit up Highland and Cobbs hill. The Sun made this very enjoyable, I almost wi... read more

    good Friday Shake Out 4.72 mi 00:37 07:53 pace

    Afternoon miles outside. Cold but sunny out, which always makes it feel better. Wind was tough in a few spots but I didnt have a ton of exposed skin so that helped. First mile felt wonky, working ... read more

    good Tempo 8.2 mi 00:54 06:38 pace

    Needed a mentally and physically strong feeling workout today, I got it. 1 mile warmup, 10k tempo, 1 mile cooldown.

    I effectively broke my 5 mile and 10k PRs in this workout (I'm not sure if ... read more

      Sorry to hear that it didn't go as planned, but I can tell that you've already screwed your head back on straight. It's tough and it downright sucks when you have a goal and things go horribly wrong against that goal. Most people don't get the frustration and would say you still ran a great race, but I know that those words ring hollow for a competitor like you. However, I will say solid effort for battling and continuing on. Chalk it up to a learning experience, and use it as fuel for Boston.

      So proud of you. We all have bad days, and that was a super tough one. Don't beat yourself up. Trail shoes and ice and snow and only ten secs/mile slower pace? That is an accomplishment. Also, come run marathons down here in winter! ;)

      Honestly I wouldn't give this race another thought...the conditions sucked...laugh about it and move on...you're obviously better than the pace/time shown at the finish line. Onward!

    Recovery Miles today. Last week I met a girl while running (her dog got off leash and I helPed her, then we chatted), we realized we only lived 1/3 mile from each other. Today her and her 2 dogs ... read more

    blah Lake Effect Half 13.1 mi 01:35 07:13 pace

    Not a good day for racing for me. Physically I just didn't have it, add in the back half of the course being covered in snow and I was done. After the first 2 miles I threw out any time goals ... read more

      Just finishing it under the conditions is an accomplishment, Laura - don't beat yourself up too badly on this one. There are plenty of races in front of you with PRs there for the taking.

      Seems strange they would run the race with snow covering the course. But well done for getting through it and best to put it down as a training effort - you know you're much better than this.

      Sheebus! Look at those paces! And that heat wave, it's like a sauna in upstate NY! Happy to hear you stayed upright and didn't slip though, that's always a win in those conditions. You're getting faster and faster, dear!
