Whether you workout before work or after work, chances are if you workout outside you'll be working out in the darkness or very dim light.

And one of my major pet peeves is to see runners or walkers or cyclists or really anyone out and about who doesn't make sure that they can be seen.

Because the majority of my workouts are before Hubby goes to work, and usually I'm solo, safety has always been a priority for me. And when I say that I won't run outside in the dark / low light/ fog without my Noxgear, I'm serious.

And The Marathon Training Continues

I've been a little MIA lately with the blog posts - sorry about that to the 2 of you who actually read my blog ;)

Since I faced my mountain (which by the way my mountain gave me poison oak or ivy or poison of some kind which I am STILL wearing on my legs), I've continued along my training. My Friday morning trail runs have come to an end since it's so dark outside in the early mornings. I do miss the trails. I'm trying to find a way to incorporate them into my training. But as the mileage is ramping up, it's harder for me to sneak in extra miles. I'm sore, and achy.

Last week my mileage dropped a little, but I ran with a faster running buddy. She pushed me to an 8:48 pace for our 5 miles. I do believe that was my fastest 5 miles.

Then Saturday I had another good run. I ran 15 miles with a 10:30 pace (which was speedy for me).

So far so good with the training. In just 2 weeks I'm attempting a half on Saturday and a half on Sunday. Yeah, I don't know what I was thinking. But it will be pretty cool if I can finish both of them :)
