(Not so much) Running week of April 25-May 1

I’m actually disgusted in this week for my running and fitness.  It started with a mild sore throat on Monday night which really wasn’t that bad.  Tuesday morning, my body just let me know that things weren’t right.  I don’t get sick often but… Continue Reading “(Not so much) Running week of April 25-May 1”

Running week of April 18-24

So this week my intended goal was to get away from the 5 miler runs and get in some speedwork and long runs but again, life happened.  It was birthday week and eager anticipation to get into the Golden Leaf Half Marathon in Aspen… Continue Reading “Running week of April 18-24”

Running week of April 11-17

Running week of March 14-20

Running week of March 7-13

I thought after reading my friend Katie’s blog that a weekly update on my running would be a good idea for me to keep a “journal” of how my weekly fitness is going.  I think by logging the mileage and how I feel after… Continue Reading “Running week of March 7-13”
