Princess Half Training: Week 5

During Week Four I only got two out of the three runs in. I honestly expected something like that to happen during Week 5 because I’m in Florida for Thanksgiving and I always have a harder time getting a run in when I’m traveling. Determined to not repeat last week, I started with my first…

Sarasota Turkey Trot

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! On Thanksgiving Day all across the U.S., cities have annual Turkey Trot 5K races. Today I did my first Turkey Trot in Sarasota, FL. And for Florida, it was chilly. It was only 45 degrees when the race started. I was excited to get running because I was so cold waiting around….

Princess Half Training: Week 4

The plan for week four was to run Monday, Wednesday, Friday since Saturday I have class and Sunday I’m leaving for Florida. Well Monday morning came and I was dragging. I was tired and had a headache. I still felt like going back to bed after two cups of coffee. Remembering last week, I figured…

Milestone: 400 Miles

Yesterday during my 30min run for my Princess Half Training Program, I hit 400 miles on Nike+. Honestly, it should have happened a year ago. Well…maybe not a year ago since a year ago was when I hit 300 miles, but maybe six months ago. Regardless, I said I wasn’t rushing to 400 and clearly,…

I’ve done a couple in the past with companies and PR firms, but majority of the time I forget when they are. Then I came across RunChat. It’s…

Princess Half Training: Week 3

After coming off a great Week 2, I decided I should probably get some runs in outside instead of using the treadmill. I don’t want to get into a pattern where I’m so used to running on the treadmill that my outdoor running suffers. So I figured I would do my first outdoor run on…

Princess Half Training: Week 2

I had finished my first week of training earlier than scheduled, so I ended up having four days off between runs before the second week started. I did this purposely because Saturday was the first day of my weekend class and my dad also came into town. He was here until bright and early Tuesday…

Princess Half Training: Week 1

Seems like just yesterday I was writing about my 10-Miler training. Well now we’re on to the half marathon training. This week marked the first of the 18-week training program and it went really well. I actually got all three runs in. I didn’t think it was going to go as well as it did….
