Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

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 :)
