Two common issues I’ve dealt with throughout are: tight calves and tight IT band. They have always been weak points for me. You may remember a couple weeks ago I posted about the ...

One of unfortunate things about doing a lot of my runs before the sun comes up is the lack of the track in my life. I’ve been missing it a lot. We got back from the beach on Sunday, but I had taken Monday off from work. I am really glad I did because I got a lot of some ...

Marathon Training Week 10: 8/10/15-8/16/15

Week 92

I guess all my reset and refocus goals for the week paid off. It was still a challenging week, but I felt like I was much more mentally in tune with running this week. It was much overdo! I didn’t stick to the Hansons plan this week, instead did my own thing. I think it paid off great mentally for ...

A Treat for Relaxation

Palm Breeze2

What a week. It has not gone anything like I had envisioned, but I’m just going to shake it off. I’ve still got some things to figure out, but I’m taking it one day at a time. I took resting very seriously Thursday night and picked up these delicious Palm Breeze drinks from Walmart. Maybe it was the frustration of ...
