enjoying every second of life and running




Sunday (1/9): 20 Miles Long (Treadmill, 1% Incline, 2:46:39, 8:20 Pace)

Today was my first 20 miler of this training cycle and it put me into a new weekly mileage high of 73 miles. My legs were noticeably tired and sluggish so I’m glad that this run wasn’t with MGP miles and was just time on the feet.

This evening we are chilling out and watching movies, a nice way to wind down and enjoy the last of this great weekend!


Hat Trick


Saturday (1/8): 4 Miles Bike Easy (Warm Up for Run, P1, L4, 15:00, 16mph), 9 Miles Recovery (Treadmill, 1% Incline, 1:17:09, 8:35 Pace), Light Weightlifting, 5.75 Miles Recovery (Treadmill, 1% Incline, 49:18, 8:35 Pace)

Today I ran the remaining miles from my week of tummy troubles. Luckily I’m feeling much better! After my bike and first run it was time for our running club’s annual banquet to celebrate 2010.

Me and Rob.

Mitch and Me.

Tonight I won “Female Runner of the Year”! Making it a hat trick for me because in 2008 I won “Best New Runner Female” and 2009 was “Most Improved Runner Female”.

Terry and Me. Terry won “Most Improved Runner Male”.

The dinner was great and we had fun catching up with our fellow running friends. Plus they have drawings for door prizes. Both of our tickets won and Rob was awesome and let me have both. Which meant I got this long sleeved running shirt with our running club’s name on it and pink recovery socks! Score! 😀 I was off to do my second run of the day in my new gear.
