Weather is supposed to change over the next couple of days! 7:34 average. Thu, 18 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Jan 17, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-17-2018.html Slept in this morning, so treadmill run. Progression run with 10 x 1 minute pushes. Wed, 17 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Jan 16, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-16-2018.html Really dark run through the park this morning, followed by Zumba. Flailing my arm around in class made my elbow sore. Tue, 16 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Jan 15, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-15-2018.html So, I had to press the running re-set button. I overdid it. I was really sick and run down last week. Actually, the last month has been a continuous cycle of recurring illness and constant stress. I couldn't sleep, and dropped weight because of loss of appetite. I can't run well in this condition, so I pulled the plug on the Phoenix Marathon and took about ten days completely off. I'm trying to find a healthier balance in my life. It felt good to get back out there today. Mon, 15 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Wed, Jan 03, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-03-2018.html AM: Planned on a midweek midlong, but felt terrible this morning. I'm getting the kids' chest cold. I couldn't face 12 miles this morning. So, double run today. 8 miles at 7:37 average. PM: Snuck out for four more. I owe Cole five bucks. Wed, 03 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Tue, Jan 02, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-02-2018.html Up with a congested baby through most of the night, so headed to the gym this morning. 10 minute warm up then tempo. 7 x 3minutes at 6:20, 3 minutes at 6:10, and 3 minutes at 6:00. Up from 5 sets last time I ran this workout. Cooled down to 12. Tue, 02 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Mon, Jan 01, 2018 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-01-2018.html First run of 2018! 8.5 afternoon miles. Picked up on the last 2. 6:13, 5:51. 6:51 average. No elbow pain! Mon, 01 Jan 2018 07:00:00 Sat, Dec 30, 2017 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-30-2017.html Well, at least I got the long run in. Kind of felt crappy, but my elbow didn't hurt. 7:15 average. Sat, 30 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Fri, Dec 29, 2017 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-29-2017.html Still nothing. Kind of scared about impact. Fri, 29 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Thu, Dec 28, 2017 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-28-2017.html Broke my elbow. Hopefully not out too long. I think I'm cursed. Thu, 28 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Wed, Dec 27, 2017 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-27-2017.html Met Nan, Jenny, and Angie at Murray Park. Ran to Wheeler Farm. I wanted 12, but at 10.5 I got hit by a car making a turn and not looking both ways. It was minor, but I banged my elbow pretty hard, and felt really nauseous. So, I hobbled back to my van. Cole wants to go for a run later this afternoon, so I might throw in a second run. Wed, 27 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Tue, Dec 26, 2017 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-26-2017.html 2.2 mile warm up. 4 x 10 minutes with 3 minute jog recovery. Cooldown 10 minutes. Zumba! I was tired. Tue, 26 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Mon, Dec 25, 2017 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-25-2017.html I love running on Christmas. It's so nice to get out by myself in the quiet and reflect on the year and other things. Always a present to myself. Merry Christmas running friends! 7:17 average. Mon, 25 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Sat, Dec 23, 2017 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-23-2017.html Slept in and went on a nice easy run with Cole. I'm glad my kids can be my running partners. 8:28 average Sat, 23 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Fri, Dec 22, 2017 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-22-2017.html FREEZING! But, we made it. No pick ups, just a solid long run. First 20 in a while. So glad I had Becca, or I would have stopped at five. 7:17 average. Fri, 22 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Thu, Dec 21, 2017 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-21-2017.html AM: Hour run. Cole told me he would babysit if I wanted to run later . . .for five bucks. We'll see . . . Thu, 21 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Wed, Dec 20, 2017 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-20-2017.html Midweek midlonger than last week! Stuffing in a little extra before the storm. Wed, 20 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Tue, Dec 19, 2017 http://emruns.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-19-2017.html Morning run with Becca. Sore legs! Zumba!
