I’m sad that next week is the last week of my running clinic, but I’m kinda excited about doing my own thing. I’m ready to start half-marathon training. Now I just have to pick a plan! Through the St. Jude marathon program I get a free plan through Active.com that normally costs $30. I think I’ll try it because it will give me reminders and such.
Thanks! I might have to make a trip to Conway!

I’ve managed to work hard at the gym 4 times this week! This morning’s circuit:
- Two-arm kettlebell swings
- Wall sits
- Kettlebell bent-leg windmills
- Medicine ball arc chops
- Wide-grip pull-downs
Short and sweet, lots of sweat and huffing and puffing. I planned to run tonight but decided I want fresh legs for tomorrow’s group run.
So tomorrow I’m going to run with the local running club. A lot of the group leaders at my running clinic are in the club, so I’ll know some of them, but I’m really intimidated. I don’t wanna go and be the slowest runner!
I’ve been hitting it pretty hard at the gym the past two mornings after a couple of months of half-assing it. I hurt in muscles I didn’t know I had. Top that off with mowing the back yard for the first time with our new reel mower and you’ve got a chick who hurts from her knees to her shoulders.
Ooh, lights just flickered, the storm must be here! Better “Create Post”!
We had our third timed mile at tonight’s running clinic, and I PR’d! 11:07 minute mile. My previous PR was at my last race where the first mile was downhill. I shaved three or four seconds off of that time.
if you run. you are a runner.
I disagree, there are runners and there are joggers, and there is a world of difference.
If you’re actively trying to improve your pace, but are still kinda slow, are you a runner?
This made my day!
