Staying Active and Eating Well

I had this daydream that the next time I blogged the knee pain would have already magically disappeared. (Sometimes aches and pains do that, right?) Unfortunately, that’s not the case. 😦 The good news – it’s not worse. The bad news – pretty much feels exactly the same. For those of you asking, it’s located … Continue reading

Overindulged on Every Front

Yikes. It’s cutback week. Less mileage, less everything. (Except food and drink, it seems.) But cutback week feels excellent right now. It seems forever since the last time I temporarily reduced mileage because it actually was in my training plan and not because of a minor injury. *drumroll* I am currently running tape free, insole … Continue reading

Week Eleven Recap

Already? 🙂 Seems like I started with this marathon training plan just a couple of weeks ago. There something awfully liberating about recovery runs. I mean. You get to go both short and slow. Usually I don’t find short runs all that fun because you barely notice you’re running… when it’s already time to stop. … Continue reading

Slow and Steady Girl

The more I run and the longer I’ve been running… I become more and more convinced that I’m made for distance. I’m not a sprinter. I’m not a natural runner. I work hard. And sometimes it seems like progress is almost nonexistent. But. I love to run. Who knows why, but I do. 🙂 I … Continue reading

Shoppin’ and Advice Needed!

I had one of those twelve hours at work days today and decided to follow that up with a little bit of shopping at a mall on my route home. Mostly because it boasts one of the two specialised running stores in the city and I found myself needing some stuff. Confession time! I hate … Continue reading

All Your Eats Are Belong to Us

Today was that day. That day when you don’t feel like running at all. It’s not even that your legs are hurting or… anything that makes sense really. For me it was a super busy long day at work. I’d had a short night sleep, I’m stressed about finding a new flatmate, all I’d managed … Continue reading

Injuries, Dinners, Spring and Week 6 Recap

Phew, so that’s a lot. 😀 After my run yesterday, my left thigh and knee area felt sore. But this morning they were pretty ok. So, again following the 75% rule, I decided to for an easy and comfortable 3.5km run instead of the 5km The Plan called for. I’m still testing the new shoes, … Continue reading

Those Forced Breaks

…of Doom! Well then. Turns out that my cut-back week is now recovery week. 😦 I’m one of those obsessive runners who hates missing a run. Firstly, because I love running, and secondly because I love plans and checklists and ticking things off from The Plan (aka my this year’s marathon training guide). So, as … Continue reading

KT Magic and the Weekend Breakast

I’m compiling my shopping list for next week and waiting for the rain to ease up a bit before heading out for my Sunday recovery run. This is the first time all weekend I’ve had a moment to breathe really. Let’s look at Saturday. Now, The Plan called for a 13km run. But I really … Continue reading
