Guys, I had a great week! Weekly recaps help me stay accountable, see weekly progress, set small goals, and check in with the world. I like seeing how others are doing- the good, the not-so-good. I think as runners we have so much we can learn from each other. I’m Linking Up With the Jess’s- jessrunsatl.com and therightfits.com -check them out for other weekly recaps!

Less than 100 days until the Richmond Marathon! This week went better but my schedule was off. I was much better about foam rolling and stretching! Lots of early mornings, even though I ran in the evenings. Read More →
Well friends, the end of July has arrived. It has been a month of big changes in my non-running/traveling life, but things are looking up and going well. Here is my recap of the week. Recapping my week helps me be accountable and not make excuses for how the training season goes. Read More →
It was the second crazy week of overcommitting. I even got talked into doing something on Thursday. Sigh. But, I got some running in, which I count as a success. Read More →
So to all my friends who told me this week as a horrible idea- you’re right, it was not a good idea, and if I could have a redo, I would make different choices. Read More →
With the 4th of July holiday on Monday, and my last of regular work on Friday, it was a strange week. Later nights than I was expecting and the heat+humidity was back. Read More →
How did the week go so fast?!? It was crazy at work and with evening commitments, so a little light on the workouts. But, Read More →
7 miles and 1 kettlebell class. So a low mileage week. Bummer.
But the flip side, since I have such a late marathon (mid-November), it’s ok that I’m not fully ramped up. Read More →
In full honesty and transparency, because it’s important in life and in running, I had a terrible week. Ok, so I had a terrible running week. Like seriously, zero miles. I went to kettlebell class and that was it. I was in an intensive certificate program for 8 hours a day, then doing my own work, commuting, had evening commitments, and was trying to read each night for class the next day. The classes were awesome! But… I averaged 5 hours a sleep for the whole time. It was rough.
A bright spot though, I did homebase for ARRC on Saturday, which meant I got to see all my running peeps, even if I wasn’t out on the hills with them.
I’m going to try again. Even though my schedule says 26 miles this week, I will be happy if I can hit 18-20, given how the past two weeks have been. It’s all you can do sometimes, try again in the morning, step by step.
