All About R.I.C.E.

This week was all about RICE!  That is not easy for me at all.  I tend to ignore aches and pains and keep pushing on.  But, I couldn’t ignore this.  I spent the first part of the week resting, icing, and elevating my feet while wearing compression socks.  So, this week was not a good one in terms of running.  But, it did get better towards the end, and my dad and I are planning a long run together next weekend.   more “All About R.I.C.E.”

The Word of the Week is Consistency

Hey Guys!  This is going to be a long recap, because it was a very busy week!  This week was all about being consistent!  This was my third week of marathon training, and I rocked it!  I hope I can keep this up throughout all of the training.  (15 more weeks!)  Since my second week didn’t go according to plan, I wanted to make sure that I worked hard this week.  I pushed myself hard in my workouts, but I also made sure to stretch a lot more, and get a lot of rest so my body could recover.  I really enjoyed my runs and workouts this week!  I felt stronger!    Later on when the training gets really hard, I’ll have to look back and remember how much fun I had this week! more “The Word of the Week is Consistency”

Motivation!

Hey! Hey!  Today I want to share some motivation with you.  I have been in desperate need of some lately, so I thought I’d share with you too.  During the winter months when it’s cold and dreary and the sun doesn’t shine much I have a hard time staying motivated.  I would rather curl up under a blanket with some hot chocolate and a good book or movie.  Even though sometimes we need that, we also need to be exercising too.  more “Motivation!”

A Solid Week of Workouts

Hi Friends!  Welcome to this week’s recap!  I had a really busy week of work, but I also had a solid week of workouts and runs.  And, the weekend brought some cooler temperatures so it was actually tolerable to be outside!  A busy week called for a relaxing weekend and that’s just what we did.  I included my weekend recap in this one since we relaxed all weekend.  Let’s go back to Monday.  more “A Solid Week of Workouts”

My Life This Week

Hi Friends!  I can’t believe another week has already gone by!  It feels like I was just sitting down yesterday to write a weekly recap.  Summer is definitely here.  This week our temperatures heated up quickly!  I had to get up really early to run before the days got too hot.  And you know I am not a morning runner!  But, I got it done. I really didn’t do much this week besides eating and running!   more “My Life This Week”

Rainy Day Runs and Workouts

Hi friends!  I hope you all had a great week!  I had a very rainy week!  We had rain and storms just about every day this week, which can make it tough to stay active.  When I wake up and it’s raining, I don’t even want to get out of bed! Even though the weather forecast showed rain and storms for the next 15 days starting last Sunday night, I was able to still get out and get some runs in.  I also focused on a lot more strength training and core workouts.   I feel like I had a pretty active and productive week!  And, we did end up having a few days without rain!   more “Rainy Day Runs and Workouts”
