IMCuse 2.0 Countdown Week Two

Heyo, another week of training in the books. I did a bit better this week. I’m still having a hard time letting go of the control, which was made obvious by the fact that every single day this week I logged onto Training Peaks and moved my workouts around. Seriously, Read more →

Must Have Cold Weather Running Gear

This winter, I don’t think it will ever end. When I got up yesterday it was -10F with a windchill of -29F. For real, -29F, those are some seriously cold temperatures. And school didn’t even give us a delay. Even my car cried a little when I started it to Read more →

For The Love Of

It’s Friday *happy dance* And my winter break starts now at 3pm! (Damn you weather for not being cold enough for a snow day!) Hello full week off from school, I’ve been dreaming of you all week. I pretty much mentally checked out Tuesday. My alarm went off and I got Read more →

That Thing Holding You Back

Ain’t No Snow Gonna Slow Me Down

Monday again. Where did my weekend go? I did have a decent week of workouts. Slowly but surely, I am getting back into a groove. Slowly but surely. No workout Monday. Tuesday I headed to spin class. It went pretty well and I pushed pretty hard the whole time. Wednesday was Read more →

The Never Ending Countdown

Wow, some days are just too much. Monday ended up being rough! Just a straight up struggle for me getting ready in the morning and I ended up leaving a few minutes later than usual. And on my drive in I missed my turn which meant I had to drive Read more →

We Meet Again, Monday

Hello Monday. I see we meet again. First thing’s first, a little weekly update since they’ve been scarce around here since my injury back in August. Last Monday I ran, but it was again only two miles. And my footpod hated me, as I mentioned last week. I still haven’t recalibrated it Read more →
