Did 30 minutes easy run last night, about 2.5-2.8 miles. I switched my training schedule up from intervals to easy because my legs were fried. So tonight I have to do those intervals- yuck!

2 miles on the treadmill yesterday before I met with my trainer.

I did intervals - 2 min. at a pretty fast pace, 2 minutes at my usual pace, 1 min. walk.

I had egg rolls for lunch. They are not good pre workout food.

We have a new layer of snow today so no intervals on the track, darn! I was really looking forward to getting off the treadmill and hitting the track. So back to the gym today for 5-800's and min rest and a warm up mile and cool down mile. Then I went to the yoga class. That felt great and the intervals went pretty good.

I did my 11 miler LSR on Sunday and nothing Monday due to work.

Egg rolls sound great right now! Yum!

I was sick last week, and the bronchitus stole my voice.....teaching was impossible, but it was 65 degrees even though I felt horrible, I went for a beautiful 5 mile trail run anyway....with lots of tissues

Long bike ride saturday (50 miler) and an extremely hilly run on Sunday.....back to the pool yesterday and out on a run tonight....6 miles tonight.

I still have a bit of a cough, but I have a terrible time cutting back! I did take one day off last week, and I just slept instead. I know it helped!

I think my principal would be appalled if he knew what I did when I was sick! I just have no willpower!

Be careful Kacie- bronchitis can stick around a long time and become worse as pneumonia! But I have also been told it is okay to run or bike with bronchitis because it does hang around so long. My doctor just said "you may not want to be outside breathing cold air". I usually get it in November/December.

I know....I am chock full of meds.....My doctor also said that if i had even a little bit of a cough when I ran out to call him. It is actually in th 70's here though, so I am not worried about the whole cold air. It is always a balance!

True, I can only stay inside so many days when I am sick. I usually choose to hike or ride at an easy pace but if you are training that is not always an option. Hope you get to 100% soon!

Just be careful Kacie!

Eight miles (high )... and yoga's REALLY helping. Especially when I ran right after yoga class. The more flexibility I get in the lower back, and especially the more my lumbar curve gets restored, the more naturally my pelvis rotates when I run. After my turnaround when I saw my footprints and noticed that my right foot is still toeing out a little bit, I could inner spiral the thigh and feel my leg straighten. When my arches started burning a teensy bit and I wondered whether Blister Block was going to be enough for such a long sandy run, I could cue myself big toe mounds, four corners of the feet and arch support doesn't come from shoes: (although my feet are definitely in the early stages of learning that). And of course when I started to fatigue, I could visualize the energy in my center powering me and pulling me forward.

I'm afraid that if I build too much mileage too early without any problems, I'll be tempted to do the full marathon in the fall. I'm crazy that way. I'd better sign up for the half now. (she says, fully intending that it's NOT going to be the next thing I do on the Internet. )

Another beautiful day... the beach was perfect... I'm grateful... yay.
