Work With Me

So long recovery week, I had fun….

Recovery week is coming to an end.I’m getting ready to head out for an easy nine with some Back on My Feet peeps. The recovery week is beautiful. Although it’s funny, during this “down time” I had five, nine mile runs on the schedule. (I broke them up a little differently than originally scheduled, taking … more »

Workout fail, kind of.

I had 16 miles on the schedule for today.  Halfway through the week Glenn emailed me with a marathon pace workout for the long run. It looked like this:  Alternate between marathon pace (MP) and normal long run pace (LRP) using a ladder format as follows: 1/2 mile MP/1/2 mile LRP 1 mile MP/1 mile … more »

Why I’m Staying Home.

I went back to work in September. I was fortunate to have a super flexible schedule, going into the office three days a week and putting in some evening and weekend hours. We found a couple of great babysitters (Butler students) and things were looking up. As time went on, I started to realize I … more »

First Post Baby 26.2.

On Saturday, four months after having a baby, I ran my 10th marathon. The extent of my training for this race was really making sure to get in a 15, 17 and 20 miler. All the runs in between were what I had time for between balancing Marshall, not sleeping, going back to work and … more »

20 Miles with a Stroller.

Today’s 20 miles. I don’t know why I do this to myself, but I was agonizing over this run for like 2 weeks. The distance seemed daunting. I hadn’t ran that far since the Monumental Marathon last year– which I ran with a friend. It’d been over a year since I’d ran 20 miles and … more »

My marathon with James

On Saturday, I ran the Monumental Marathon with James Boyd. What an experience. If you are a seasoned marathon runner, I highly recommend running a marathon with someone who has never gone the distance. It is truly a rewarding, fun and real experience. You know what it meant to finish your first marathon. You know … more »

Month of May

It’s been a while since I last posted. I have decided it is hard work to keep up with a fairly consistent blog entry. So here goes a new one for ya! It seems like I have been up to a lot of racing and what not since last time. Like the Arcade Fire song, I’ll … more »

Back on My Feet runs the Carmel Half Marathon & 8K

There were a total of eight resident members who ran the Carmel Half Marathon and two who ran the 8K. I had the … more »

Summer Music Preview and Spur of the moment music

When I got into Lindsey’s car the other morning at 5:15 so we could head to the Back on My Feet Indy PH team meeting The Decemberists was blarring. This was not a real big surprise since the moment we bought The King is Dead on the way to Piney Point for the marathon the cd … more »

Lindsey the Low Key Runner

Ever since the big PR’s in Piney Point, I have been quite the low key runner. I’ve made myself believe it is difficult to get “real” training runs in. While this is not entirely true…. really I just like to make excuses as most people do!  My the struggle has been between running with Back on My Feet three times a week and running … more »
