Injured on the long run

I'm nervous about this long run today. We are scheduled for 6 miles. I know my ankle won't hold up that far. I am hoping for at least 4, but considering it already hurts and all I've done is wake up I'm worried. I'm still getting up and meeting with my running group because they… Continue reading Injured on the long run

Weekly Workout 4

I'm injured and¬†I've been having a really hard time dealing with this fact. According to the physical therapist my extremely tight calves and limited mobility in my right ankle have caused stress on a tendon in my ankle. This is causing pain when I run, walk, and sometimes even when I am just resting. Luckily,… Continue reading Weekly Workout 4

I finished my first half marathon on May 7, and training for my fall half marathon doesn't start until July 1. Luckily, the running… Continue reading Weekly Workout 1


Running Across the Finish Line

Yesterday I tweeted my (almost) negative splits. At first I was a little hesitant to post my times, because, let's face it, I run a pretty slow mile. I connect with a lot of people on social media and in life that run an 8 minute mile on their easy days. I can't even fathom… Continue reading Running Across the Finish Line

Fall Half Marathon Training

So, I just got the email that registration for Fall Training is open at my local running shop. Um...hellooo... did we not just finish our Spring half marathon two weeks ago? I am no where near mentally ready for the next one. Training doesn't officially kick off until July, but even that seems too soon.… Continue reading Fall Half Marathon Training
