It's been a while!

Howdy everyone! Sorry it's been a while since my last post! I've been a little busy...but now I'm back and I'm excited to tell you what I've been up to!

I've been VERY faithful to my running schedule. Even with another weekend away, I still trained. I've decided to start giving myself an extra day of each session before moving up to the next weeks training. This is working out well for me. Besides the fact that I'm starting to feel awesome, it feels like I've had better recovery time since I started doing this.

Tomorrow will be my last day of Week 2 training and I'm kind of nervous to move on to week 3. My very supportive friends all said it went well, but we all know I'm a wuss! Although...I have found myself looking forward to finding out what songs will be in the next podcast because I'm really starting to like them.

Here's a funny story for all the readers who already know me personally...I was in Philly this past weekend and thought I would have a hard time finding a track to run on. My brother told me there was one behind his house and I got so excited that I forgot to stretch or eat breakfast before my run! Can you say "major Charlie Horse!" Even I had to laugh at myself for that one!

I did discover something interesting after this weekend's adventures...I was due for a run on Easter morning, but I had been out drinking the night before (heavily I might add,) so I was a little worried. I forced myself to wake up, had some fruit, and got out to the track...when I started running, I found that it was one of the BEST runs I've ever had! I wasn't sore, I didn't really run out of breath, and the only thing I noticed was that I had perspired more then usual. Could this have been because of the alcohol? I did end up drinking a lot of gatoraide that day, but it was amazing how good I felt! I probably won't ever do it again, but I'd love to hear your thoughts about this?

Well...until next time...Keep your fingers crossed for my next phase of training!


  1. you are doing great, keep it up!
    I don't really drink so can't help you with that one, sorry!

  2. I rarely drink unless it's a social occasion, and it was so strange to wake up and run! I really don't think I'll be doing that again, but I definitely thought it was interesting enough to mention!
