I have fun every time I run, and have recently overcome the "I can't go fast anymore" hurdle.  I'm having fun going faster and working towards becoming even faster.  

I have raised two running children, one competitive and one not.

I have learned to run in ice and snow and I don't complain. 

Short-Term Running Goals:

Work towards a faster marathon by Spring 2012.

Get my 5K down to 21:30. 

Place in my division at duathlon and triathlon.

Train for biathlon.



 




 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Joining Forrest Gump


 

Personal:

I'm a 52 year old mom of two ex homeschooled teenagers. They both think I'm nuts.

Track workout tonight!  It was raining sideways and raining hard, but not too cold.  The workout was 5X800 at 7:00 minute/mile pace, followed by 4X200 at .46 per 200.  I am usually really terrible at pacing, and have had very little practice lately with the 5K pacing (7/mile), so I was beyond happy at my pacing tonight!  The 800s came out at 3:29, 3:31, 3:30, 3:31, and 3:34.  I must have been rather tired on the last one!  The 200s were .46, .46, .45, and .44.  All very acceptable.  My tendency is to run 200s way too fast, but I think it helps to kind of tire myself out with the 800s first.

Downhill skiing in the morning, just because we had a little fresh snow.  We get incredibly heavy, wet powder often, and this was definitely heavy and wet!  It was fun for about three hours, then I quit and put on the skate ski gear for an hour and a half.  I worked especially hard on uphill technique, so it turned into more of a workout than I intended.

Bike interval workout on the indoor trainer!  Its been a long time since I did this - probably too long.  I did a wu, some 30 second bursts, then 4X5 minute intervals at a "hard" effort.  then a cool down.  Then some more cool down because the movie I was watching was not quite over!

 Followed it up with some yoga and abs.

No skiing today, so I did a 200m hill repeat workout.  7X200m on the hills at R pace, and then 4X200 on the flats also at R pace.  warm up and cool down jogging, and followed it up with a nice stretching/yoga workout.

Merry Christmas!
