Making it Happen

Hi Friends!  I hope you had a great week and an even better weekend!  It’s been a little cold this week, but today it’s back up in the 60’s!  I had a great week and got in some good runs and workouts.  I was pretty happy with that.  Usually this time of year it’s hard to fit those things in.  But, if it’s important you’ll make it happen.  I saw that on Pinterest this week and I’ve had it running through my head all week!  more “Making it Happen”

It’s December!

Hey Friends!  I can’t believe it’s December!  Christmas is just around the corner and this is my favorite time of year!  I love everything about Christmas, and I really got into the Christmas spirit this week.  The weather can’t make up it’s mind on whether it wants to be hot or cold.  It keeps going back and forth between temps in the 30’s and temps in the 60’s.  I’ll take 60 degrees any day!  The 60’s made for nice running weather this week! more “It’s December!”

Thanksgiving Week

Hi Friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and were able to celebrate with friends and family!  We had a great Thanksgiving and I enjoyed way too many sweets and am looking forward to getting back on track this week.  It was a busy week getting ready for the holiday, but I did get in several runs.  This is going to be a long recap, but a good one!  Here’s what happened in my life last week. more “Thanksgiving Week”

Sick and Tired, Literally

Hi Guys!  I hope you have had a great week!  Mine was okay…alright, it actually totally sucked!  I have literally been sick and tired all week.  I feel like I’ve been a huge downer lately because of my back, and then this week I got sick.  But, what do you do?  🙂  I did get to watch a ton of Netflix.  I won’t complain about that!  I was sick all week long and completely worn out.  All I wanted to do was sleep, which just made me mad that I couldn’t run.  But I’m finally starting to feel better and I got in a run yesterday and another one today.  I did take Jake on a walk each day so I could meet my Pile on the Miles goal.  Plus, he didn’t care if I felt good or not.  He just wanted to play!  more “Sick and Tired, Literally”

My Weekly Recap

Hi Guys!  I hope you all had a great week!  Mine was really good.  I had a little unexpected, but very much needed break during the middle of the week and it was awesome!  I didn’t get a lot of running in, but I did better.  My back is finally starting to feel better!  It’s not 100%, but it’s really close.  Maybe 96%!  So, I took more rest days than run days this week just to help it feel better.  I did do a lot of yoga and that really helped my back.  I didn’t really feel like I trained that much this week, but I did make sure to meet my Pile on the Miles goal every day.  (Walk or run 30 minutes each day)  I’ll share with you what I did do.  more “My Weekly Recap”

There’s Always a Silver Lining

Hi Friends!  I hope you all had a great first week of November.  It still does not feel like November.  Our temperatures have stayed up in the upper 80’s and the sun is hot!  I’m not complaining at all, because I would rather have this than cold weather.  But, it doesn’t really feel like fall yet.  more “There’s Always a Silver Lining”

One Tough Week

Hi Friends!  This week was pretty rough and there wasn’t a lot of running.  Coming back from vacation really caught up with me and I was TIRED and sore.  The soreness in my legs set in on Monday night and it was still there on Thursday! No matter how much stretching, foam rolling, or hydrating I did, they were so sore! (I had a hard time getting in and out of my car, and also just sitting down in a chair!)  Also, my back was pretty sore, and towards the end of the week it changed from soreness to just pain.  Overall, it was a rough week.  Thankfully, it was a “rest” week on my schedule, so I took it easy and tried to rest as much as I could.  Even on the runs that I did, I took frequent walk breaks and didn’t push too hard.  (It also probably didn’t help that the heat and humidity were in full force this week again.  Seriously, it’s almost November, when is the temp going to drop below 85-90??) more “One Tough Week”

A Lot of Running!

Hello Everyone!  It has been a week.  It’s not been bad, it’s just been busy, busy, busy (!!) and next week is even more busy!  But, I’m still managing to get in some good runs and hopefully next week I will be able to as well.  But, let’s talk about this week.  I hope you all had a great week and let’s get you caught up on what’s been going on in my life!  more “A Lot of Running!”

Halfway There

Hi Guys!  I hope you all had a great week and are having a great weekend!  It feels like forever since I’ve posted.  I guess it’s just been a week, but it was a busy week so it feels a lot longer!  We have had an awesome weekend and went on a little getaway.  I’ll tell you all about it tomorrow in my weekend recap.  This week was sort of a rest week on my running schedule, which worked out very well since we were out of town.  It was seriously just a coincidence but it worked out perfectly. more “Halfway There”
