I run- after my students, my own kids, and occasionally on my own.

A look back at 2014, and some goals for 2015

Well, I just started to remember to write 2014 on things, so it must be the new year! I have spent a little time looking over the numbers from my running log, and it has been quite a year. As seems to be my norm, my running went in fits and starts all year long. Some of this was due to the cycl...

Week 1 training recap

This was the first week of my half marathon training plan, but I am in the throes of the 100 mile November challenge, so I can't claim that I stuck to the program. Here's what was scheduled: Monday- Stretch and Strengthen Tuesday- 3 miles Wednes...

#100Miles and a new training plan

100 miles in a month. For many of you, this may seem like a no-brainer. I would love to be in that group of cool kids, but as it stands, I have yet to hit 100 miles in a month. That is, until this month. I am participating in Angie Maske-Berka's (@angiemaskeberka) 100 mile November challenge....

10K Training: Weeks 4, 5, and 6

Just a quick update. Training has been stagnant at best. Cross-country return trip, August in Florida, getting a new school year up and running, etc., etc. I'm not going to bore anyone with excuses, but I am going to get back out there and get after it! For those who have busy schedules, how do ...

10K Training: Week 2

This was the second week of my 10K training plan, and as usual, we like to keep our schedule full. The end of summer brings our annual migration to Iowa, so I missed a couple of runs due to the 20-hour drive and following recovery sleep. I should have worn my Garmin while I chased this g...

10K Training: Week 3

This was week 3 of my 10K training plan, and it was a doozie. This was the second week of our Iowa pilgrimage, and I came down with a stomach bug that put me out of commission for about three days. I won't go into detail, but I assure you that running was the furthest thing from my mind. I did ...

10K Training: Week 1

This week was the first week of formal training for the 10K I have targeted in the fall (the Run for Lawson 10K on November 1). My training plan started off nice and easy, and I ended up doing a little more than what was scheduled. Here's a quick recap: Scheduled: Tuesday: 2 miles Thursday: 2 m...

A new training plan and some old trainers

Today was the first day of a new training plan. I have learned that I do so much better when I have some clear objectives for each day's run. I am using a sub-55 minute 10K plan from Runkeeper. This is the first plan of theirs that I've used, so I'm excited to see how it goes. My goal race is the...
