Workouts – Last Week Today – March 19

I had a solid week of running this week.  I continued with my plank-a-day and went to yoga class.  I only ran three times this week, totally ok with that as I had a half marathon on the books for today (more about that this week). My runs felt better than they did last week.  I still slacked on the foam…

Annual Wearing Of The Green

Today I’m joining the lovely ladies for Tuesdays On The Run.  Where we talk about a different topic each week that is running related. Today’s topic is “St. Patrick’s Day”…. we’re talking about traditions, races,  costume… etc. St. Patrick’s Day was always one of my favorite holidays! There was never any stress involved on St. Patrick’s Day … there were parades ……

Workouts – Last Week Today – March 12

I had a solid week of running this week.  I continued with my plank-a-day and went to yoga class.  I only ran three times this week, had planned on 4, but got stuck at the office late 4 out of 5 days. I don’t know what it is, but this week my runs have felt harder than usual.  I have…

Workouts – Last Week Today – March 5

This week was a week was a definite cut back week for me.  I ran twice this week, made it to yoga class, and started on my plank-a-day for the month of March. This is how my week ended up: Sunday – Rest day.  Spend most of the day in my PJs. Totally needed a pajama day! Monday – 3 easy miles with the…

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. Although I do have a race on the horizon, I’m not too worried about it.  I am actually thinking about running that race as a “fun” run….
