Pepper’s Training Log – 4/13/14

The last two weeks have flown by, mostly because we took a week trip to Yosemite, but life has been nutty as well and the 6 days of workouts a week took a slide because of travel, but I still met my 30+ minutes a day for most of the week goal, though it was mostly hiking this week. March 31 – A few hours playing around at Ray’s Mtb more » Read more

Pepper’s Training Log 3/31/14

Another week of meeting my goal of 30 minutes of exercise most days, and even ran twice this week. Though the planned weekend outdoor riding got thwarted by mother natures random snow storm I did manage to get myself to Ray’s for some indoor riding, and I have plenty shiny new bruises to prove it. Monday – Commute to work 13.5 miles Tuesday – Lunch run 6.5 miles, slow pace more » Read more

Pepper’s Training Log 3/23/2014

What? A training log? Yeah I know it’s been about a year since any real training went on over here. Don’t get too excited because most of it is going to be cycling these days, but FWIW I do have a few ideas on the back burner about how to up my run fitness on minimal run training while focusing on the bike and getting preggo this year that I more » Read more

Pepper’s Catch up log 4/22/13 through 5/26/13

The past four weeks have been way too light on running hence the lack of training logs. Some of the lack of running was due to laziness, some to stomach illness, a lot due to heavy workload, and there was still a decent amount of cycling going on. But I think it is safe to say you can put me squarely in the weekend warrior column right now and my more » Read more

Pepper’s Training Log 4/21/13

What a week. Between Boston, Texas, ricin scares, and local shootings I must say I am very glad I do not work in media. But despite all the awful in the news, despite a cold, and hardly any training this week, I still have much to be grateful for and I am. I live to train another week and I remain a very blessed girl. This week was packed socially, more » Read more

Pepper’s Training Log 4/14/13

I’m in the fog of a cold and can hardly recall last weeks workouts, it was a rainy week in Cleveland and that resulted in me slacking off on the commute front, and overdoing it a bit on the run front. Still need to get back into a week day groove of some sort if I want to start doing some races here, whether they be multisport, cycling, or running more » Read more

Pepper’s Training Log 4/7/13

Yep, still being a bit of a slacker here. I need to pick a goal race or I am doomed to be a weekend warrior. My left calf has been a bit angry since last Sundays long run, and it has me a bit worried, but I am hoping I am just being overly paranoid and that it will loosen up with some TLC. This week I didn’t make it more » Read more

Pepper’s Training Log 3/31/13

After the disaster that just was trying to make vegan peeps I have an unexpected few minutes on my hands here this Easter Sunday to actually do my training log on time! Not a big week. A few too many days recovering from the race and whatever viruses and bacteria were holding my body hostage. Took through Thursday before I started to feel like a real human being again! Monday-Rest more » Read more

Pepper’s Training Log 3/24/13

I’m late, I’m late, for my training log entry date.Not much to say about last weeks “training.” I only got in one workout and the race. Pretty sure I was fighting off a stomach bug and a virus of some sort. Monday and Tuesday I had absolutely no energy. The rest of the week my stomach was not playing nice at all. And to top it off aunt flow arrived more » Read more

Pepper’s Training Log – 3/17/13

This week was nothing special but pretty solid going into race week next week. Not quite what I was hoping for on the weekend but given the weather (cold, snowy, windy, muddy) I’ll take it. Took the mid week run up to 90 minutes and knock on wood the foot seems no worse for wear. I’ve been feeling like I could go longer and I am glad to say I can more » Read more
