wild canyon ultra race recap

I’ve been meaning to write this post for three weeks. Procrastinate much? Yes. I’ve been busy—the end of the semester + work craziness—and I’m just tired, but still. On April 21st, I did the Wild Canyon Ultra in Quitaque, Texas. It was my first ultra, and I just did the 25k. There was also a… Continue reading wild canyon ultra race recap

week in review: me vs. the elements

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review. Last week was one adventure after another. Last Monday, I came home sick from work. 24-hour stomach bug. SO not fun. Yuck. I was still feeling a bit under the weather Tuesday, when I drove my parents to the airport. I… Continue reading week in review: me vs. the elements

week in review: from insanely busy to disgusted

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in review. I missed last week for a very good reason:  my parents were in town for a couple of hours on Sunday afternoon (when I usually write this post), and spending time with them and Baby Brother was more important. I’ll actually… Continue reading week in review: from insanely busy to disgusted

TOL: the cowtown race re-cap/positive self talk

I’m linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for Thinking Out Loud. The Cowtown was two weeks ago, and I’ve been meaning to put a few thoughts out there ever since (procrastination at its finest). The people I know…aren’t really athletically inclined, for the most part. So, when I tell them I did a… Continue reading TOL: the cowtown race re-cap/positive self talk

week in review: races

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review. I survived the week. This is a huge accomplishment. And I took quite a few pictures. Work was work. I ended up working a short (10-hour) day Wednesday because bad weather/sleet moved in, and we sent the patients home early for… Continue reading week in review: races

what my running motivation looks like on any given day

Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons to talk about my running motivation–or lack thereof. Actually, I’m just trying to motivate myself into finishing the other half of my homework and getting a run in, since I was too swamped on Tuesday to run (bad runner, I know). These are the stages of my… Continue reading what my running motivation looks like on any given day

my low-key half-marathon “training plan”…a.k.a. “laziness keeps making me start over”

Seriously, y’all. What happened to all my motivation of a year ago? I ran four times a week, I ate healthy, I was totally focused on being healthier. Fast forward to now, and it’s all I can do to finish like 5 things on my to-do list, much less everything. Ha. As if. I’ve been… Continue reading my low-key half-marathon “training plan”…a.k.a. “laziness keeps making me start over”

weekly workouts #4

I need an accountability partner. In my eating choices. My workouts. Life. That’s kind of the point of these posts: I’m basically physically lazy, and if I don’t keep myself accountable, I’ll totally slack off and slop around the apartment. Which is kind of what happened since last fall. I was doing great:  running regularly,… Continue reading weekly workouts #4

weekly workouts #3

This week has been pretty “meh” as far as workouts go. In other words, I’ve been feeling pretty lazy. Sigh… Monday:  worked 14 hours or so for a total of 13,282 steps (6.29 miles). Tuesday:  Holiday. Obviously. Wednesday:  worked 12.5 hours for a total of 11,743 steps (5.56 miles). Thursday:  strength training + ran 2… Continue reading weekly workouts #3
