C210K W14D1

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Day one of the last week of 10K Trainer! Today’s run wasn’t bad. I was a lot slower than usual but did that on purpose. Still not feeling 100% but the run was fine. I did 60 mins straight no walking and that is what it will be until the end. The trail was pretty […]

C210K Week 13 Check-In

Posted by & filed under 10K Check-In.

All in all a decent week aside from the Sinus infection. Normally I don’t have trouble running when I’m not feeling great and it usually makes me feel better but this time was different and probably more to do with the humidity. On Day 3 I waited until nearly sunset to start my hour long […]

C210K W13D3

Posted by & filed under 10K Trainer.

Today was MUCH better than last week. I took several days off to get over my sinus infection. I was worried about taking that many days off but it was worth it. Today’s run, my longest ever at just under 6 miles felt great. There was the usual fatigue toward the end but it wasn’t […]

C210K W13D2

Today was terrible. I’m sick with a sinus infection and the weather is humid and nasty. I decided to run anyway and I got through it but it was probably the worst I’ve felt after a run since beginning C25K months ago. D2 of Week 13 is two 25 min runs with a one minute […]

Good run for the first day of WK13. Day 1 is 22 mins twice with one minute walking in between. No real soreness to mention. The previous races had my training schedule a little skewed but I’m back on track.

Back to 10K Training

Posted by & filed under Check-In.

Back to 10k training! As you might have noticed I’ve not posted a 10k Training blog in a week or so. This doesn’t mean I haven’t been running! I ran the races and as well, I’ve run with a couple of other runners, one who is just starting C25K and another who is just finishing. […]

15th Annual Katy Trail 5K

Posted by & filed under Races.

Did the Katy Trail 5K tonight! My time was 34:03. Not too bad. Fun Race! A little crowded due to the streets and getting 4000 people on a trail but it wasn’t terrible at all and the after party was insane! Live bands and a who’s who of local restaurants in the park! THe run […]

Cinco De Miler/First Race Completed! (8k!)

Posted by & filed under Races.

I did my first race on Sunday, the “Cinco De Miler” in Dallas. This was a 5 mile (8k) race. I’ve not done a 5k (3.1 miles) yet but I have one coming up Thursday night. I remember hitting the 5k mark Sunday and thinking “I’d be done by now in a 5k!) hehe.The race […]

What? A treadmill?! And only 2.4 miles?! Are you sick??? No I’m good and yes a treadmill, but the milage is wrong. I don’t think Nike+ likes being inside, or I wasn’t holding it right for indoor use. I *hate* treadmills and I haven’t been on one since the beginning of C25K but it was […]
