Hitting the Ground Running

IMG_3040

Gooooooooooooooood morning! Dragging my butt out of bed this morning to run was well worth it for this: As I always say, waking up early to run sucks big time when that alarm goes off, but just remember how awesome you’ll feel when you’re out there/done. :) That, and having someone to meet really helps!

Return to Track Workouts!

IMG_2498

This morning marked the start of operation: get my running speed back! My friend Sokphal and I took our standing Tuesday a.m. run date to the track. We ran the 1.75ish miles to get there, and once there, we decided to do a 2 mile workout. For 8 laps, we jogged the curves and ran hard on the straights. I love this track workout – it’s one I Continue Reading …

8 Miles Before 8 a.m.

When my alarm went off a little after 6 this morning for my running date, I REALLY wasn’t feeling it. I’m tiiiiired, I whined to myself. I probably shouldn’t have had those 2 glasses of red wine at happy hour last night, either. I checked my phone: freezing rain and 27 degrees?! Great. I debated texting my buddy Sokphal to see if she still Continue Reading …

Track Tuesday & Triangle Area Blogger Wine Tasting Meetup!

Good morning, friends! I made it back to the track yesterday morning for a great workout — Tobacco Road Half Marathon training continues! I can’t believe the race is only a few weeks away. I convinced Elle to join me for the early morning workout. We were pleased to see that the sun was already up to join us when we arrived! Continue Reading …

A Double Workout: Track Training & Walleyball!

Good morning, friends! Yesterday’s workout was in two parts. I had an intramural walleyball game at 5:45, so I decided that instead of getting up to run before class, I would combine my workouts and do a track workout in the evening before walleyball. Efficiency AND a chance to sleep in? I’m sold. I arrived at the track around 5:15, so I only Continue Reading …

Track Workouts Are Back!

Early yesterday morning before the sun had come up to join us, Elle and I made our return to the UNC track! We’re both training for the Tobacco Road Half Marathon, and it was time to get back on track (literally) with speed workouts! Obligatory sweaty/tired un-cute photo We had a great workout! Here’s what we did: Warm up jog Continue Reading …

Dear Sunshine

Dear Sunshine, I’m so glad we’re morning workout buddies again. Love, Anne Good morning! Can we just talk for a second about how amazing that whole clock change thing is? I’m back in Chapel Hill and met my friend Genna for our usual Tuesday a.m. track workout this morning — and it was so gloriously bright and sunshine-y when we Continue Reading …

Track Tuesday & Dressing for Winter Running

Good morning! I hit the track this morning for my usual early Tuesday a.m. track workout! Brrr it was a cold one again this morning — NC is weird because it gets just as cold (if not colder) than areas farther north overnight, but then gets a lot warmer during the day. It was 35 this morning when I met up with Elle — and it’s supposed to Continue Reading …
