Grandma’s Marathon Race Report

I’m going to start this race report with two lists. First, a list of lessons I learned. We’re all here for the takeaways, right? Don’t trust people who tell you races are flat. Always wear sunscreen. Don’t part your hair down the middle for marathons. Don’t skip the warmup ever ever ever. Go ahead and... Continue Reading →

Race Report: Anthem 5k 2019

It’s always fun to line up for the Louisville Triple Crown series — a 5k, 10k and 10 miler each two weeks apart. While we have lots of races throughout the year, the Triple Crown is when everybody turns up. It’s a big reunion! This weekend was the Anthem 5k and I was feeling good... Continue Reading →

Carmel Marathon Race Report (finally)

This marathon cycle I unplugged a little bit. I didn’t write training logs for Salty Running. I did a terrible job, frankly, of even updating my logs for my coach to review. I didn’t post a lot about running on social media. I also hit taper with mixed feelings. I could see in those aforementioned... Continue Reading →

Weekly Recap 12/10/17

Week two of my new job and I’m getting back in the early morning groove. Monday: 6 miles before work, in the dark, with Morgan for the first mile. I ran hard Saturday and lifted Sunday, and got my mileage back to 50, so this run basically sucked. 8:15 pace, 141 AHR. Tuesday: 8 miles... Continue Reading →

Weekly Recap 11/19/17

This week ended with a FUN running weekend but I have to do this chronologically for my sanity so hang on. Monday: 6 miles, 50 min, 139 AHR. Woof. After pacing a friend for a half on Sunday, this was very not pleasant. Taught Pilates in the evening, advanced class which meant I got to... Continue Reading →

Weekly Recaps 9/18-10/1

Can’t get my training log action together this season. Let’s roll into Chicago with one more double log! Week of 9/18-9/25 Monday: 8 miles on my lunch break, from downtown across the pedestrian bridge to Indiana and back. Easy miles, 63 minutes/141AHR. Tuesday: 10 miles on the treadmill with 5 miles around marathon pace. Felt... Continue Reading →

Weekly Recap 09/17/17

It's almost here!!!! This was my last big week of training, now time to sharpen up and get ready to fly. I raced a 5k on Tuesday and am feeling good about Chicago! Monday: 8 miles, 63 min, AHR 141. Ran during lunch. Great idea. I don’t do this often because there’s no shower available. But... Continue Reading →

Weekly recaps July 23 & 30

Sometimes I have to think less about running and just do the damn thing. So I haven’t been great about logging or reflecting or any of that. I did read Ronda Rousey’s “My Fight/Our Fight,” which was a good motivational read that was also quick and easy. Quick and dirty weekly recaps for now. My... Continue Reading →
