The week coming up

MissyFoy -

Saturday, February 28, 2009 I’m looking out the window right now and the rain is going sideways.  It’s 45 degrees and dropping.  Lovely.  Tomorrow at this time, I’ll be in sunshine and 80 something degrees, though.  Back here in NC, it will be, oh, 30 something and snowing.  Hmmm.  I don’t travel well and I’m […]

Winding down the week

MissyFoy -

Friday, February 27, 2009 I ran my long/tempo run this morning.  It was a mental struggle!  I did not want to run 10 miles of tempo in the midst of a 17 mile run.  I didn’t want to run at all actually.  I really didn’t even want to get out of bed this morning.  But, […]

Speed workout #1 is done

MissyFoy -

Thursday, February 26, 2009 I ran the first speed workout yesterday.  The day didn’t go as planned as I had some mid-day family things to deal with, but everything turned out okay and I got the workout in without any problem.  My goal pace for the 300s was 63 seconds with a 100 meter walk […]

This week’s training and other random things

MissyFoy -

Monday, February 23, 2009 It has been a hectic day.  I got back from NYC, where I had a busy but great time.  I ran in Central Park a few times, spent a day and evening in Greenwich Village with some good friends, went to my old training partner’s bridal shower on Saturday, and stayed […]

The week so far and all that jazz…

MissyFoy -

Thursday, February 19, 2009 I have to make this short because I’m in the midst of trying to get my stuff together to leave for NYC.  I ran the workout this morning.  I don’t usually run workouts in the morning because I’m so not a morning person and it just makes the workout so much […]

Another week of training down

MissyFoy -

Sunday, February 15, 2009 I ran the long run/10 mile tempo thingy this morning.  I didn’t sleep well last night thanks to Bob snoring all night and the cat climbing on me and pinning me down.  So, I left the house in a little bit of a disorganized fashion … and forgot my watch.  Ack!  That’s […]

Finally, my first workout in over six months!

MissyFoy -

Friday, February 13, 2009 I ran the ladder workout yesterday.  I ran my workout on a dirt trail loop to stay out of the wind as much as possible.  It was a tad bit harder than I thought it would be!  I ran the right pace and didn’t fall off, but it just took more […]

Beautiful Weekend for a Long Run

MissyFoy -

Sunday, February 8, 2009 We had fantastic weather in NC this weekend!  It was 67 degrees and sunny.  I ran my long run with 10 miles of tempo again.  I added a couple miles to the warm up, going 5 miles, and I ran 2 miles easy for a cool down.  The ten miles of […]

North Carolina in February

MissyFoy -

Thursday, February 5, 2009 The weather in NC varies quite a bit during the winter months.  We never know if New Year’s will bring a record snowfall or temps warm enough to head to the beach and surf.  And, February is predictable in that you can bet we’ll yo-yo between extremes.  This week, for instance, […]

Update on training … and other stuff

MissyFoy -

Monday, February 2, 2009 Today is Groundhog Day.  I sooo wish that Spring was right around the corner!  At least once we reach Groundhog Day I know that the days are longer and we’ll have a few warm days sprinkled in and that can get me through the rest of Winter.  Next week I’ll start […]
