the workout

MissyFoy -

Tuesday, March 31, 2009 Just finished the workout – 12 x 1000 with 60 to 70 seconds recovery.  It went well:  4:00, 3:57, 3:56, 3:56, 3:55, 3:55, 3:57, 3:53, 3:53, 3:53, 3:54, 3:52.  I felt okay all the way through until #10.  On the end of the tenth one I started to feel tired.  But, […]

Another week down, another one up

MissyFoy -

Monday, March 30, 2009 Last week went pretty well for training.  I had to cut the repeat miles short because I was running them faster than I think my legs were ready for, but that happens sometimes.  Not a problem; I got in six of them anyway.  My long run with 10 miles of tempo […]

Workout update

MissyFoy -

Tuesday, March 24, 2009 I ran the workout this morning and thought I would post a quick update.  The workout was 6 – 10 x 1 mile.  So, based on my original time trial, my pace was supposed to about 6:25 – 6:27ish per mile with about 2:10 recovery jog.  Well, I ran the right […]

This week…

MissyFoy -

Monday, March 23, 2009 Last week’s running went so-so for me.  I had a tough week – lots of work and stress from my crazy and hectic life, plus lots of busy-ness with my friend’s wedding.  So, the wedding was great.  My former training partner, Heidi, got married.  I ate way too much and got way […]

An “ugh” kind of week!

MissyFoy -

Sunday, March 15, 2009 I hit one of those weeks where the legs were feeling dead.  At least I didn’t feel blah for the whole week, though.  Between traveling, trying to squeeze training in, working whever I could squeeze things in, and not getting enough sleep, I got hit with dead leg syndrome at the […]

Hollow cakes and other funny things

MissyFoy -

Wednesday, March 11, 2009 While I was in Tucson, I had the chance to spend some time swapping funny diabetes stories.  So, I had to tell on myself and I guess I’ll share one of my funny ones here.   In our neighborhood, we have a lot of impromptu get togethers and cookouts and such.  So, […]

Waffles for breakfast

MissyFoy -

Friday, March 6, 2009 I went for my long run this morning, here in Tucson.  The weather in the mornings here is great, really great.  We went down the river trail all the way to the end and looped around some open desert for a little bit, then headed back up to town.  On the […]

Still in Tucson

MissyFoy -

Thursday, March 5, 2009 I’m still in Tucson.  I’m getting my training in, but had to switch up my morning/afternoon schedule as it is just too hot here in the afternoon to run 10 miles or so.  I ran my speed workout on the high school track.  Nice track!  Tucson High has a mondo track […]

Training in Tucson

MissyFoy -

Monday, March 2, 2009 Here I sit in Tucson after finishing my afternoon run in 85 degrees.  Back home, Bob is snow bound with 14 degrees tonight.  I think dealing with sun, heat, and dry wind makes for a wee bit better training environment than snow, wind, and 14 degrees.  But, I miss Bob.  I […]
