4 Weeks Already

Not knowing when this sucker is going to heal might be the hardest part about not running. I can’t make a plan because I don’t know when it will be better. The Doctor says probably 6-8 weeks, but who really knows. I’ll be able to feel it when it’s ready. I know that even if … more »

Working on that GOAL

Yesterday I gave myself a goal to post on this blog everyday this week. I think I was drunk because that’s a big goal. I think I can do better at blogging though. A lot of times I’ve rolled my eyes at the “blogger mentality” or whatever you want to call it… because like who cares … more »

Hoosier Half Marathon Race Report

Today felt like progress. I anticipated I’d run somewhere between 1:35-1:37 and I ran a 1:36:08. I wanted to run 20 miles for the day for my last long training run for Boston, so we warmed up 3.5, ran the race and cooled down 3.5. Correct, this is a much more fun way to get … more »

Being content where you are.

Today I woke up wanting to run. Most days it takes a good 2 hours before I even want to think about running. I’m not the best morning person. Today I was feeling motivated and encouraged, which was good news because yesterday I was in a funk the first part of the day and sat … more »

Week 4 – Mohican 50 Training

Another week of running. Another training log blog. Recording this helps me process through how I am feeling, what worked, what didn’t, new things to try, etc. I figured out today that I have ran for 30 straight days. I kind of like it. My body feels good. The last two Mondays I have used … more »

Week 3 – Mohican 50

Hi. Another good week of training. The winter has been grinding on in Indy this year. It is one of the coldest and snowiest January’s on record. This has meant a lot of treadmill miles for me lately. It is hard to get in quality runs when it is just really shitty outside. I don’t … more »

A Life without Limits

I finished Chrissie Wellington’s “A life without limits” and have walked away feeling inspired to be a better athlete, but more importantly a better person. Chrissie is an Ironman World Champion 4 times over and has never lost an Iron distance race in the 13 that she has completed. I read this book during several easy … more »

Week 2 – Mohican 50

If you noticed I really only blog about training… exciting I know but its what I like to talk about. Here’s another training log.Overall, it was a good week. I am not where I’m ultimately hoping to be but that is expected with taking 8+ weeks off any real training. I ended up running every … more »
