Running!

Next Sunday I'm running the Philly Half. I haven't fully put in hard training for this and I've kind of decided that that isn't going to happen until I want to devote the time to it, but I'm not sure when that will be.  Ever since I went to the track workout (which was awesome) a couple of weeks ago, my legs just can't recover quickly and my running schedule has been kind of poor. I've been doing my long runs mid week and running 3 days in a row. My legs have been TIRED!


 I almost took off the whole weekend this past weekend to rest my legs. Instead I didn't run Friday or Saturday and then had a great 3 miler on Sunday. I took off Monday and felt good today with 8 miles.  I'm getting some kind of cold and might take off a couple of days to recover so that I am not sick for next weekend! I really wanted to go to the track tomorrow night for speedwork but I don't think it will be in the cards.  I did 2 bike trainer sessions in the last week. I don't like the bike. My butt kills! What is with that?

Leading up to the half, I want to get in a speed session early next week and then just run at goal pace for a tempo run at some point. Let me know if you have any tips.

I've been trying to get some Christmas picture ideas. Love anything matching. I took a photography class this past weekend and have been having a blast taking pictures of my little ones. Love them!

matching PJS. A must.

  8. your butt will adjust, honest. you have padded cycling shorts? or at least tri shorts? otherwise, it's just time. but honestly, it will get better if you 're consistent.

  9. Great pictures! And it just takes your butt a little while to get used to the seat. It helps if you can get a saddle that is comfortable for you but if you are riding bikes at the gym there isn't much you can do about it other than wear cycling shorts.

    Good luck at the half!
