A New Running Habit…
A New Running Habit…

My Garmin and my new favorite post-running drink! Yes, I have become a big fan of Mountain Mudd’s APB, Half Colada with protein smoothie. Yes, it’s a long drink order but SO delicious! I treat myself to one a week after the hardest workout- usually my long run. I went ahead and bought a pre-paid drink card (10 medium drinks)

Easy week… very nice!

Abi and I on her 5th birthday, this past week. My little girl is growing up! Last week I was able to clock in 30 without any trouble. I even took 2 days off… very nice!! Sunday- 5 mi. Monday- 8 mi. Tuesday- Off Wednesday- 4 mi. Thursday- Off Friday- 10 mi. Saturday- 3 mi. This was the second week

One HOT week!!

Yes, the temperature was pretty much at 100 degrees every day this week. My goal when it is all said and done is still 35 miles. Monday was the worst run of the week. I went at 8:15 with the running class at Health Corp. We ran 5.5 in the humidity on hills at about an 8:40 avg. pace and

On Thursday I went 8.5 with Kem in the heat of the morning. Friday I went at 6:15 (a.m.) with Meg and it was wonderful. The temperature was so much more bearable.

Hot Runs on some Hot Days…

Yes, it is blazing outside. I know I need to go earlier in the morning but I need to get my kids all sleeping through the night first. Anyway… Tuesday morning Kem and I went 8 around a 9 minute pace. Then today I went 5 with the running class (same pace). It was harder today than yesterday because of

Harder with jogging strollers?

Yes, today we went on a “family run.” When we do this, John pushes the double jogger and I push the single jogger so we can all go together. I enjoy these runs because we get to go with the kids but it is definitely a workout! We went 3 1/2, although it felt like 7. Today was a nice

2 More Morning Runs…

Yesterday I went running on a Sunday morning for the first time in a LONG time. I met Meg at 6:55 and I must say it is a different world out there at that time. There was hardly any traffic, the weather was great- I could get used to this! We did 6 miles, partly on the trail and then

Another week done…

Yesterday I did 8 with the running class. Afterwards my legs were pretty tired so I put off doing Body Pump until today. I am not planning on running today since I am at almost 30 for the week. I am planning on going a few in the morning with Meg. Marathon update… I recently realized that I will need

A nice run with my sweetie…
A nice run with my sweetie…

This morning a good friend from church wanted to watch the kids for me (yes- they called me and asked when they could keep my kids this week!) so I had an hour and a half to myself! John and I decided to go for a jog together with no children since we haven’t done that since our half marathon
