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 …

Successful Day: 10 Miles & A Wedding Venue!

Guess what? I ran 10 miles yesterday!! :) I haven’t run that far since March! I was proud. And especially happy because my leg felt good for the run, too! (I’ve been having some issues with my calf/ankle.) As you know, I skipped my long run last weekend and have been foam rolling, icing, and rocking my compression sleeve — and I think Continue Reading …
