The Home Stretch

If there are any other teachers among my readers, you can attest to how insane the last weeks of school are. It seems that every year, students realise that school’s about to end for the year when there’s about two weeks to go, and every year they get really worried about their grades and extra credit assignments … Continue reading

It’s not running without shoes and taping

Really, it’s not. 🙂 Instead of the well-deserved rest after the Saturday race last weekend, I decided to go on a 12k slow and easy in the blistering heat the next day. Well, I can say that it took me no effort at all to keep to a 7 min/km LSD pace then. 😛 It … Continue reading

Race Recap

How awesome to this again! 🙂 I’m afraid I’ll be cruising on endorphins for the rest of the evening so bear with me. Today I ran my second ever half marathon. I ran it pretty much unprepared. (Not wise, but you know…) Since I had done very little running in the past two months – … Continue reading

The Weekly Recap

So, I quite suddenly started running again on Tuesday and I’ve been trying to get in a run on my regular days since. That’s Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. 🙂 I think I might have started too early seeing as how I’m sitting with an ice back on my knees right now. Argh! Can I … Continue reading

High on PB (and That’s Not Peanut Butter!)

Yup. That’s right. Still running. Running through the fatigue. It’s possible, I’m telling you. 😉 A little bit of tape and ice has vastly helped the knees as well. I felt so energetic when I woke up today. A bit earlier than intended – my cat was hungry and decided to take a nice sharp-little-paw … Continue reading

Cumulative Fatigue

Or something. I’m starting to think that just pushing on with my training plan straight after the HM last week wasn’t such a good idea. Just because I don’t feel like my legs are tired doesn’t mean they actually aren’t. Which is why I’m sitting in bed on a Saturday evening with ice packs wrapped … Continue reading

Hitting the Ground Running

And I’m back! 🙂 It’s officially the beginning of Week Sixteen of my marathon training plan and now it’s all about getting back on track. After all the rearranging I did with the running days and distances in preparation of the half marathon I ran three days ago. (Feels kinda awesome to casually say that. … Continue reading

First One Down! (The Race Report)

Let us start with: You do not want a post-op cat recovering in your bed the night before race time. Lesson learned. 🙂 I’d been busy eating more carbs the past two days than I usually, so instead of my weekend breakfast of protein pancake I started my race day with a late breakfast of … Continue reading

Fumble, Stumble and Fall

Or tumble down a hill, as the case may be. It’s taper week. And I’m finding it tough. It’s weird. But my half marathon is next Saturday and I’m determined to do everything I can to have a great experience. 🙂 For my taper, I’m trying to decrease the frequency, intensity and mileage of my … Continue reading

The Stubborn Snail Makes Muffins (and Runs)

It’s ten to midnight, time to type this up! It’s also still light outside. I guess we are really heading towards the shortest nights of the year. Probably also why I’m not sleepy at all; my body doesn’t realise it’s nighttime. In fact, lately I’ve taken to sleeping with one of these sleep masks. (Have … Continue reading
