Getting more confident

On Saturday last week I felt inspired after watching our team run at an invitational meet and wanted to run fast on Sunday for my own run. I didn’t know how fast I could run, and haven’t tried running hard since I have upped my mileage. I was shocked at my splits

I finished off the run with a 4 miler and 8:30 pace felt fantastic. This week really showed me a lot with pushing myself to the limit. I worked hard on every run and didn’t make excuses for when I was tired and my legs were sore. I went to spin class on Monday morning, which was killer and then did a short 2 miler on Monday morning.

Wednesday I did an early morning run of 6 miles, and in the afternoon I did a short 4 miler recovery run. I finished off the warm afternoon run with a frozen capri sun and my 6th grade tastebuds rejoiced. It was SO good.

double-day-marathon-training-runThursday was a rest day and I have been back on the ice and foam rolling train. My right need has been hurting just a bit and I know that taking care of it on my non mileage days is key to making sure that I can keep running the miles I have been.

foam-rolling-icing-it-bandFriday I finished off the week with another easy 4 miles and my average pace has been increasing with each run. Even though I only ran 25 miles this week, I really worked hard at making sure all the miles ‘counted’. I usually can just go out and run, but I don’t push myself, and this week I did just that. I haven’t felt this confident in my running in quite some time and I’m really looking forward to the Santa Clarita Marathon in November!

Also, I’m pretty excited for tomorrow, I have a big giveaway coming up! Stay Tuned :)

xoxo

    They’ve definitely stepped up from early drops in terms of design quality and overall styling so props for that, just finding it hard to see what they’re about. Where’s the link with the tutankhamun / iluminati tee & hood and the american sports based tee & snapback? It’s too confused.

    Before this post, I was under the impression that you can’t use wildcards within URLs.Would the following work now in a hypothetical situation to remove different sorting URLs?Disallow: /product/sort/*This would cause pages /product/sort/alpha/ and /product/sort/price/ to then not be indexed.

    This is cool. I currently have to escape every file so I might have a go at this solution.One potential improvement here would be to return a Reader that could wrap the extra content without having to first read the whole template into a String, in order to save memory where a template is large.Also it may be a bug to be closing the Reader within that method – it happens to work here since StringReader.close() does nothing, but for most other Reader classes that would cause reading it to fail.

    Today it’s zero or below zero in the Northeast. That’s way too cold. That’s my complaint. Even the weather is political. If it’s cold, they all come out of the woodwork claiming this disproves global warming. But everybody misses the point; global warming or not, there is still GLOBAL POLLUTION and that’s bad for everybody. Burrrrrr.

    Do crash logs get sent to Google? If not, I need to talk to someone about the 35 crashes I've had in Chrome dev since 2013-02-21. Only 3 crashes in January and 3 crashes in December. This was the most unstable month I've ever had with the Chrome dev channel. ;)

    Tally ho, old chap, how about some claret to the old tripe! Chasse-Spleen är inte illa, låter härligt med 00an. Själv sitter jag med italienska Napa-caben Le Serre Nuove 04 i glaset ;-) Skämt åsido, Serre är riktigt, riktigt bra. Klart det finns fat, men också en rejält stenig och kryddig cassis med lite stall och lakrits. Med lite svart vinbärsgelé till hjortsteken är det en höjdare. Lirar inte dumt till en okynnesbit parmesan heller.

    Vern… one of a kind. It flashes memory back to the days of walking over to the PURE OIL station and listening to “Stardusters” practice or hearing him play at the old Carpenter’s drive-in. So tonight Vern & Ike will pick a few tunes tonight, for sure.

    Thanks for posting this article. One more reason why I foam at the mouth when people tell me how great Al Gore is. I strongly recommend the book Cool It, a calm look at the myths and truths of Global Warming as told by an actual environmentalist, not an enviro-activist.
