when a mile feels like a marathon

Six months ago, I ran six miles like it wasn’t a big deal. (Not like super fast or anything, but I ran it without stopping or passing out.) Then I was injured for 3 months. Then I started trying to run again, and life and laziness kept getting in the way. So, here I am… Continue reading when a mile feels like a marathon

the past week’s workouts

Starting over fitness-wise sucks. (Also any other-wise. Just sayin’.) I’ve been struggling to get back into running, without hurting my leg again, and while combating several months’ worth of inertia. (UGH.)

…and miles to go before the end…

I’ve run 10.5 miles in the last 72 hours. For me, that’s a lot. First was the 5k Saturday night. Then 3 miles on the trail on Sunday.   Less than 14 hours after the 5k. BAD IDEA.  I was really sore yesterday, and I’m still feeling it today, despite a hot bath with Epsom… Continue reading …and miles to go before the end…

week in review: the stuff of nightmares

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the first time in a couple of weeks. Hi, y’all!  I’ve been a little bit busy, so I haven’t been around much lately. But this week is my Stay-cation, so I’ve a bit more free time this week. A bit. My planner actually looks… Continue reading week in review: the stuff of nightmares
