Week 14: Momming in the Middle

Sometimes these are so smooth I feel as if I’ve finally found that sweet spot.  Other times, I can barely breathe with the humidity.  My legs feel heavy, my music is all off and my mind won’t clear enough to just let go and GO. This week was good, not great, but good.  This morning,…

Week 11: Small Victories

Today started like every other morning I need to run… racing the clock. I rushed to get Diem on the potty so we can continue on this “no accident” streak, I made  breakfast, got my kids to EAT the breakfast which takes an old priest and a young priest as it is, dressed all of…

Week 6: Finding My Groove

The last couple weeks have been a learning curve of sorts.  I am still figuring out the balance between momming – training – writing – wife’ing but within each of those is another balancing act in itself.   While I LIKE to have some kind of outside activity to do with the girls, the heat…

Week 4: Mind Over Matter

For the last 2 weeks I cleaned up my diet again and was relieved as hell to see that my stamina and mileage improved a TON!  I still have trouble with snacking on the bad things, but I’m human and training is tough.  The more you exercise/run, the more starving you feel ALL day long.…

Week 3: #gottheruns

This week proved that keeping a positive mind and outlook will yield good results!  Getting back on track with cleaner eating (I feel) also helped in keeping my mind clear and my runs stronger.   My kids seemed to know I was considering waking up a little earlier to get out before the heat rolled…

#gottheruns: Week 2

This week could have been better, but I’m going to just focus on the fact that I put in the miles however pitiful they were.  I know everyone who runs religiously and everything you read says you need the carbs for energy and recovery, but they are just NOT my friend.  I find that my…

Week 1: #gottheruns

Week 1 was not bad! It’s REALLY hot and humid, much sooner it seems this year than last, but I hit my goals and that’s all that matters.  I did have a friend recommend these hydration tablets which will come in handy the longer my runs get.  It’s so easy to get dehydrated in this…

#gottheruns

A couple years ago my running style can only be described as sad.  Just really pitiful.  But I set small goals for myself over time and although what I did is probably not how most “runners” would progress, but I did what worked for me.  Like anything I do that is for “me” i work…
