Workouts – Last Week Today – February 26

This week was a week of what I would call the best laid plans gone awry.  I had the best intentions for the week, but things didn’t go as planned.  I still managed to eek out 24 miles for the week, thanks to the half marathon I decided to run on Saturday. Follow along to see how my week went…

February Runfessions

I’m linking up with the lovely ladies today for Friday Five 2.0 and the fabulous Marcia for Runfessions.  February sure did fly by, but not without some things to come clean on! I wasn’t really planning on adding another half marathon to my race calendar this spring, but when the hubs decided to go out to the hunting club this…

Workouts – Last Week Today – February 19

I’m still just running as I feel like it, 4 days a week with one long run.  My weeknight runs have been on the short side at 3 miles so that I don’t have to leave work early to get it in before it gets dark.  I’m looking forward to the time change so I can increase my distance.  I have been adding a progression run…

Workouts – Last Week Today – February 12

After my long run on Sunday, I took it light this week.  I was up in the air about running on Saturday… but sleeping in and being lazy enjoying a couple cups of tea and reading won out. Today I ran the Galveston Half Marathon… I’ll recap it later this week – spoiler alert: I beat my time goal and…

Workouts – Last Week Today – February 5

Another easy week this week.  My next race is the Galveston Half Marathon next Sunday.  I’m just keeping my running to 4 days a week with one of them being a long run.

Fennel, Leek, & Mushroom Pasta with Artichoke Hearts

This dish is a creation from remnants from my fridge.  I had the leeks left over from the spanakorizo and the fennel left over from my sweet potato and white bean stew.  The pasta and artichoke hearts were already in the pantry and I had mushrooms on hand. This pasta dish is how I like it… heavy on the vegetables, light on the pasta….

Workouts – Last Week Today – January 29

This week, I eased into running one week post marathon.  I am taking it slow and easy…  best way to recovery, I think.  I didn’t feel any soreness or DOMS after the race., and for that I am thankful. I am enjoy running easy, and although I do have a race on the horizon, I’m not too worried about it.  I…

January Runfessions

I’m linking up with the lovely ladies today for Friday Five 2.0 and the fabulous Marcia for Runfessions.  First of all, how is it already the end of January! I have a few things on my mind to Runfess… To tell you the truth… I’m still living on my “marathon high” … and sometimes in disbelief that I ran 26.2 miles. …
