Princess Half Training: Week 9

I’ve pretty much given up on trying to train during the holidays. I keep thinking I’ll be able to get a run in, but the days come and go and I haven’t. Monday I finally slept in after getting no sleep the days before. But it was also a day of prepping for Christmas and…

A Running Survey

I saw this on another blogger’s page that I follow (Chocolate Covered Race Medals) so I decided to do it too! Best Run Ever: Disney’s Wine and Dine Half Marathon – It was my first half marathon and it was tons of a fun. Plus I finished the race under my goal time, so that was…

10 Miler Training: Weeks 15-17

As mentioned before, I sprained my ankle so I haven’t been running. That’s why I haven’t bothered with the recaps. There hasn’t been much to recap. I’ve been resting my ankle and avoiding running. As I entered the 18th and final week of training, I figured it was a good time to recap the past…

Everyone Knows Best

For the past three days I have heard people tell me EVERYTHING about my ankle. Everyone thinks they know best. Granted, my mother usually does know best, and if I don’t listen to her I always hear, “I told you so!” Not the point though, everyone keeps telling me what I should be doing. I’m…

Not Broken, But No Running

Today I caved and went to get x-rays done on my ankle after rolling it Friday night. I didn’t want to at all because I was terrified of finding out what I did. The last time I rolled my ankle I broke it. It didn’t feel broken. I continued to run on it, I went…

10 Miler Training: Weeks 13 & 14

Unlucky 13, right? You can say that again. Week 13 turned out to be nothing more than a big disappointment. But what’s new? No other week has been good either. Monday I arrive back from Florida. We took the first flight out and went directly to work. When I finally got home that evening, I…

10-Miler Training: Weeks 3-5

I haven’t bothered with the weekly recaps these past three weeks because I haven’t gone for a single run. Between being in Vancouver or a conference, my injured foot, and getting ready to move, I haven’t had a chance to get a run in. I’m hoping that will change this week. Tomorrow I’m going to…

Injured: No Running this Week

So much for making up for last week this week. Yesterday I got an insane blister on my foot and today I stressed a tendon. There’s not way I can run with the tendon. I want to cry when I walk on it for too long. I have no idea how I’m going to last…

Milestone: 300 Miles

After the last run I did, my knee started hurting again. Upsetting. So I took some time off, which has been killing me. It is so hard to go from running 13.1 miles to not running at all. It’s like quitting cold turkey. Not easy to do. So today I decided to try again. I’m…

…Guess Not…

So my last post I stated that I was planning on doing Pilates once a week and running three times a week. Well, that probably won’t happen. I went to the gym yesterday for a short run and now my knee hurts again. I guess I should have known better than to start running again. It…

I Wish I Ran Like This All the Time

I had a fantastic run today! It was the first run since I hurt my knee.  I was just going to do an easy two mile run.  I got on the treadmill at the gym and it felt great.  I had no problem running 1.3miles straight.  I wasn’t even going to take a break, but…

I’m Back!

It’s been close to a week since I updated…rare for me.  Well, on Wednesday last week I hurt my knee running.  Nothing bad or anything like that, it just needed to have some time to rest.  So I pretty much took the whole week off when it came to working out. Today was my first…
