HM Race report - Escape From Prison Hill
Saturday, April 19, 2014      5 comments

Since my last blog entry, I completed my final four training runs (which included a 12.4 m run) and was feeling pretty well-prepared for today's race! I was not prepared for the STEEP climbs and descents, though - all I can say is WOW! I thoug... Read more
HM training notes - I needed today's run
Thursday, April 10, 2014      1 comments

Since my last blog posting, I've had 5 training runs. Today's was the best by far and just what I needed. I've been waning on my desire to compete in the upcoming half-marathon... I had a decent 11 mile run the other day, which gave me the co... Read more

So far this week, I've been able to get in 2 training runs and plan to get 2 more in before the weekend. Since I wasn't able to run my scheduled 10-mile run this past weekend, I set out to run it on Monday. At 5 miles into the run, I got a... Read more

This week has evaporated! I was able to get in a 5 mile run on Tuesday, but haven't had time for anymore runs this week. Subbing has been great (really wonderful classes this week), but the time away from home and my training has been challen... Read more
HM training notes - Monday, windy 4 miler

This weekend suckered me into thinking that spring was here and the weather was going to stay warm and beautiful. Today was a very chilly, windy run (which I'll use as my excuse for low pace time). Like last week, I'm subbing most of the week,... Read more

WOW!!! It was an absolutely beautiful morning for a long run! The only downside was, due to the time change, I couldn't get my run started as early as I wanted - had to wait for the sun to come up. My long runs are taking me further and... Read more

Another unexpected schedule change today - daughter was sick in middle of night, so I canceled my subbing job for this morning. Thankfully, when she woke up, she was feeling all better, but I decided to keep her home from school today. Since ... Read more

Plans... Sometimes, I think "Why bother". Tuesday's plan was exercise, run, housework and cooking in the morning, then sub in the afternoon. But, daughter woke up with stomachache and stayed home from school. No problem, though - she had a g... Read more

Unmotivated. Did not want to run today - anything could have kept me from my run (I almost started cleaning the bathroom, instead!) BUT.... I knew deep down that once I got out the door and put one foot in front of the other, it'd be ok. So ... Read more
HM training notes - Saturday 7.2 miler
Sunday, March 09, 2014      3 comments

Saturday's training program called for a 5k race, but I decided to skip a race and extend my distance to make up for two lost training days last week. On Friday, I could have easily gotten in my scheduled 3 mile run, but then I wouldn't have ha... Read more

Today would normally be a rest day for me, but since I already know that I am subbing the next 3 days, I decided to get in a 4 mile trail. I did my same route as last week's 4 miler, which takes me up Water Tank Climb (and is actually 4.27 mile... Read more

Normally, I head for the hills on my Saturday run, but due to lots of rain yesterday, I decided to stick to the pavement and avoid the mud. Last week, I commented in my blog about how fortunate I was to be able to hit the trails right from my h... Read more

Once again, my training plans were adjusted this week due to work - but it's all good:) Yesterday, I was scheduled to run a 3-miler, but subbed instead. During the day, I had several teachers ask me if I would sub for them today, but decli... Read more

Saturday's wonderful run was followed up by kettlebells on Sunday and rest on Monday. Yesterday was supposed to be a 3-mile run, but life happens... I had full intentions to run yesterday, but was asked to sub for my favorite class of kids (th... Read more
