Luckily for me, the weather today was much better than yesterday. The sun was out, the temps were up slightly, and the wind wasn’t as strong. So I laced up my shoes and went out for my first(!) double digit run in this training cycle. Mile 1: Woo, okay feeling good. Going a little fast… Continue reading Thoughts Per Mile
Hi, everyone! I hope you all had a ham and chocolate-filled Easter Sunday. I DID! My mom made a copycat Portillos Chocolate Cake and it was delicious (though the secret ingredient really grossed me out and I really doubt I’ll be eating it again).

I say semi-modified because I’ll still be doing some strength training… Continue reading Half Training – Week 1
