Bremen Half Marathon | Week 7

Bremen Half Marathon: Week 7 | No Apathy Allowed

This past week was the last hopefully for a while that I had to combine a full-time job with big freelance projects and intensive training.  I definitely need a bit of a breather!  With too much stress and not enough time, I’ve fallen into a terrible cycle of too much coffee, sugar, and processed foods.  So I’ve …

Bremen Half Marathon: Week 6 | No Apathy Allowed

Ok, so I spaced on posting about Week 5, but let’s just jump on ahead and talk about Week 6, shall we?  I was super pleased with my running this week, although I think my cross-training left something to be desired.  The pool near work reopens in September and I’m going to have to integrate …

Bremen Half Marathon: Week 4 | No Apathy Allowed

I made a concerted effort this week to up my training game, and I think it paid off!  Plus, I bought the newest model of my running shoes and a couple of new running shirts, all of which have motivated me that much more  to get out the door.… Monday: Rest Tuesday, tempo run: It was raining, but …

Hamburg Half | Week 11

Half Marathon Training

Well, wouldn’t you know? After my Week 9 comeback post, I came down with a miserable cold, and I had to take a week off of running.  If I had properly trained up until that point, it wouldn’t have been too big of an issue.  (Heck, I even PR’d my last 10K with a cold!) …

Hamburg Half | Week 9

Hamburg Half Marathon

You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t mentioned a peep about the Hamburg Half Marathon in more a month.  It’s coming up in less than three weeks, so maybe I should give you a bit of an update, huh? Things on the training front have been very frustrating.  Around the time I returned from …
