Cinnamon’s Training Log 7.29.14

Rather than make excuses about why I didn’t write a training log last week I’m going to take a cue from today’s post and just get back to it and list last week’s running.  This week featured (mostly) shorter runs and only one day off in the attempt to make the heat a little easier on myself. Sunday, 7/20 – 8 miles easy, taking a friend on a swell little more » Read more

Salty’s Training Log – 7.27.14

I made a very important observation. When going through a rough patch with training, but feeling relatively a little better, going and and putting in one of your hardest weeks of training is probably not smart. For all the relative awesomeness of last week, I think I just dug myself a deeper hole. I felt super tired on my Monday run and my track workout was a train wreck. It more » Read more

Catnip’s training log – week ending 7/27/14

After a week of zero running, I was ready to get back into the routine. But after a long weekend of continuing ed courses and exploring New Orleans, I was pretty tired. By the end of this week, the travel and work stress had really worn me down! A couple down days and sleep-filled (well, almost) nights have helped to turn things around now and I’m going to enter the Columbus more » Read more

Lemongrass’ Training Log: 7/28

  Tuesday, 7/22: My training plan called for a “Fun Workout” but I switched this to Friday when I knew I had something exciting planned with my good friend. Instead, I did the easy 3 miles which was actually 3.77. Yes, I do want credit for the extra .77. Wednesday, 7/23: Wednesday workout buddy couldn’t run this morning (boo!) so I slogged through 6 humid and very sweaty miles on more » Read more

Mint’s Training Log – 7.27.14

After two weeks of breaking 50 miles per week, this week was a cut-back week.  I have to admit I was feeling pretty antsy and wanted to keep building up miles, but my coach put my long runs on my schedule for the next several weeks (without the rest of the schedule).  Seeing 3:00 and 3:20 coming up in the next 2 weeks was enough to convince me to embrace more » Read more

Pepper’s Training Log -7/27/2014

Well this week was another busy one. Week 2 of two part time gigs was somewhat of a bust in the workout department. It’s looking like I may be relegated to a weekend warrior who sometimes squeezes in a bike commute until I nail down this nutty schedule! There’s four weeks to go until the North Country Trail Run and this week was supposed to be a sort of back more » Read more

Basil’s Training Log – 7.20.14

Well, the new (old) shoes have done the trick. I switched back to a new pair of the Adrenaline 13s and my extensor tendinitis seems to have disappeared! I had a relatively light week of training to give me a bit of a taper for the half marathon at the end of the week. The lower mileage and absence of hard workouts was nice, as it coincided with a short more » Read more

Lavender’s Training Log 7-14-14

Another Week on the IR (injury reserve). I managed to get in the weekly mileage due to the quality runs were speed work, but my easy runs were harder to do. I’m trying to remain positive, as my injury allows me time to incorporate more strength training sessions at CrossFit,  but I miss just running without thinking. Monday – CrossFit workout: practicing handstands followed by metcon: 7 minute AMRAP (as more » Read more
