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 […]

So I skipped the last day of W11. Week 12 adds a total of three minutes running and I figured I’d be ok. I was and the run went great! No issues to speak of running wise but my schedule has been busy and my motivation to run a little less than normal. Time to […]

Hit the 5 mile mark today! I am doing a 5 mile (not K) race in about a week so this makes me happy! Day 2 of Week 11 was not bad. I had the endurance but some fatigue and overall weariness set in toward the end. I pace blame for this on myself. I […]

Today begins Week 11 of 10K Trainer. Three 17 minute runs with a one minute walk between each. I don’t like walking! The first run of this week went very well. I seem to be getting my comfort later in the runs though, usually in the last two miles. I’ve been running this trail since […]

Week 10 Check-In

Posted by & filed under 10K Check-In.

Week 10 went well. Next week I’ll be adding a total of about 6 minutes to the runs which should add about .5 miles and get me close to the 5 mile mark. I have my first race coming up soon and it’s not a 5K, it’s a 5 Mile. Then, four days later I […]

Today was one of those “bad” days running. There is never really a bad day running but there are tougher days. This was one. I’m starting to recognize what conditions really affect me during a run and the Texas heat and humidity are absolutely a factor. It was only around 80 today but it really […]

Another good day. Weather was nice and the run went well. I’ve started having a few pains in my shoulders, most likely from clenching my hands (common running issue) but other than that, nothing to report.
