Yep, folks that's what I have alright, runner's burnout. I don't even have it just a little bit! I have full-blown, I have no desire to run ever again because running sucks burnout! How did this happen you might ask? How did an avid runner come to the conclusion that she never wants to run … Continue reading Runner’s Burnout…yep its a real thing
Today's post is coming a few days early. It was supposed to be a race report on the DIVA St. Augustine race. This is a race series I've been wanting to do for a while. We have been planning this girls race weekend for months now. Then on Thursday at work I started to have … Continue reading When you can’t race
Oh man I am so behind on posts in the past week! Sorry kids! The In-laws were in town and it majorly threw me off. One thing I did learn from their visit was that apparently I have a routine that I didn't realize I had. I found out (or figured out) by process of … Continue reading Bored running
Right about now Northern runners, triathletes, and the like are gearing down for a winter of easy workouts and a leaner schedule. Here is Florida most people have the summer of easier schedules and a winter filled with races. Somehow, with the move, I missed both of these off-seasons. I started training for 70.3 Haines City … Continue reading Where is the off-season?
This is something I've been asking myself the last few weeks. I don't mean the type of runner of run/walker vs runner or jogger vs. runner but I mean am I really a runner? 6 years ago when I started running it was to try to do something active but it was also with a … Continue reading Am I a runner?
I am now in the prime training time for my third full marathon event. My A-race for the year is the Walt Disney World Marathon in January. My last two marathons had times just below the 7 hour mark. My goal is to hit 6:30 or lower. This is a super ambitious goal for me. … Continue reading The 14 miler
Jens Voit said it best! I kinda hate my legs right now and every time I run I ask myself why the hell did I decide to do ANOTHER marathon. I kinda hate the marathon distance and now add shoes into the mix! At some point running becomes enjoyable and pain free...right? So about a … Continue reading Shut up legs!
Is there really an off-season? In February of 2015 we made the big move to Florida. We got here just in time for all the races to be finished and there were really only 5K's left. It was weird to know that we had missed Florida racing season and now we were going to miss … Continue reading Tri-Talk Tuesday – Off Season
Today the coach had me running 60 minutes progressive run. Which means I had to start off slow and have each lap get faster. So I went out with the hubby to join our local run club for the Saturday morning run. I had to do 60 minutes; He had to do 6 miles...same time … Continue reading Thoughts from a 15min miler
So this week starts the official training. I've always called myself a runner but in all honesty I'm a run/walker. I've never fully run any race or any training run for that matter. That all changes. It is time to push myself past my comfort zone. I got myself a coach who is pretty awesome … Continue reading Here we go
