2015 Indoor Track Season

It’s about that time! The New Year is here, and indoor season is now underway.  

I am pretty excited to start hitting the faster workouts on the track that come with track season.  There is nothing like lacing up the spikes in preparation for a fast paced interval session.

TRY. FAIL. LEARN. TRY AGAIN

3 more days until the U.S. Half Marathon Championships with the Chevron Houston Marathon as the host and I’ve got nothing but excitement and adrenaline running through me (pun intended). Since last year was my first time running a U.S. Championship race of any sort, the course made sure to leave a bitter taste in my mouth (You know you’ve had that feeling about a race before!). I had just gotten back from being up in Michigan for Christmas as well as tying the knot with my husband when sickness struck. I remember going for a 20 mile long run with wind chills making the temperatures fall into the single digits. It was downhill from there. I ended up getting the flu and terrible cold all before the “Big Day” and the effects lasted up until the half marathon.

How Much Would You Give

 Defining the word Sacrifice… How hard is the simple task of relaying what I go through on a daily basis to everyone else?  I believe too many people take advantage of the time it takes just to sit on the couch to catch a movie, talk on the phone without multitasking, go shop at the mall because its payday Friday, or even hang out with friends after work.

A word from the coach.... Dec 29th

Most everyone knows that the warm up is an important part of a successful workout or race. That said it has come to my attention that many distance runners don’t warm up properly.  There is not one-way to warm up, like training, warm ups need to be specific to the event one is warming up for. The faster the event the more important and intense the warm up!  Often times distance runners when running intervals in practice or when stepping down in race distance make their efforts much more difficult and negatively impact their times with improper warm ups.

Learning to Love the Process

 

This time of year is one of the least glorious times of the year in my training.  I am deep into my “off-season”, where the workouts are long, hard, and painful.  This is also the time of year where many athletes, including myself, see their motivation waver.
