Work With Me

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 »

What’s really annoying about Runners: #Runchat

So, I’m just now seeing the viral “OK, You’re a Runner, Get Over It“Article. And then of course had to skim the response article, which I didn’t think was all that great either to be honest. I’ve had my fair share of laughs from the hater crossfit articles and was hoping I’d get some good … more »

I ran a lot this week.

First Triathlon TOMORROW!

Tomorrow I’ll be doing my very first triathlon. It’s a sprint triathlon and I’m more prepared than necessary since the half Ironman is just 4-5 weeks away.  Endurance wise, this is just another workout. I’ve never done all three disciplines at once though so that will be interesting. Swim: I’ve never done an open water … more »

Learning to be a swimmer. Or maybe a runner who can swim.

Usually if I tell someone I’m training for a half Ironman, they assume I’ve done triathlons before and tell me they’ve never done one. Well, I haven’t either. Usually when I tell someone I’m training for a half Ironman, they tell me they are terrible at swimming and they’d do one if it weren’t for … more »
