Luke and I have officially been in Steamboat for a full year! We absolutely love our small town life and feel so grateful to live where we do. Life’s not too shabby when you wake up to this each morning… I’ve spent the last two hours typing and re-typing the next paragraph. I then realized… More a life hiccup & refocusing on houston marathon.
i knew a few weeks ago we were going to be able to go down to denver for a quick trip over thanksgiving. i decided to take advantage of this && find a turkey trot to use as my last speed work session before CIM. i found the mile high united way turkey trot (4… More united way turkey trot recap & last CIM long run.
so i’ve already run both of my planned 20 milers for CIM. the second 20 miler was actually scheduled for next wknd, but needed to bump it up a week because i figured trying to squeeze in a 20 miler && being on call for work next wknd might not be the best of ideas!… More the two 20 milers – CIM
The last two long runs — check! My longest training runs for Portland Marathon are now 20, 20, 22 & 24! The first 20 miler — SUCKED! The second 20 miler being MUCH better than my first. The 22 was great & fun, however I think my most successful run would be 24! Before I… More the 22 + 24 milers!
I know, I know…you probably keep seeing “HIGHEST MILEAGE WEEK EVERRRR” on a few of my recent blog posts. But, yeah…61 takes the cake BY FAR! I can assure you that it will be that way until at least next year. My Portland Marathon training plan says so. ;) Next up after Portland is Colorado… More 61 mile week running recap!
So, this last 20 miler—COMPLETE turn around from my first! I am so so so so SO pleased with it! After the first one, I really had my tail between my legs. Ran it smart! Stuck to my routines that work! Fueling and hydrating the day before, sticking to the same oatmeal, chia seeds &&… More 2nd 20 miler & first time marathon nerves!
