Run Notes:

December 31: This was a really slow run/walk on the treadmill, but I wanted to get one more run in before the new year. I’m proud of how I ran in 2013 and I hope to make 2014 even better.

November 28: Mental note: start running with a hat; the air is cold and my ears will freeze solid. Also, this was my first non-treadmill run since I hurt my knee and my knee was totally fine. Yippee!

November 26: I’ve been resting my knee. Today I went for a run and 1.16 miles is when I felt my knee start to twinge, so I slowed down to a walk from there. Hopefully next time I’ll get farther.

November 20: Motherfucker. I did something to tweak my knee today. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.

November 11: So slow. I was on the treadmill. I decided that some days it is okay to run super slow as long as I am running. After all, it is better to spend 40 minutes on the treadmill (I walked for a while after I stopped running) than 40 minutes on the couch. FYI, entries without pace notations probably happened on the treadmill.

November 10: I headed out not realizing I was running directly into a strong headwind. It was kind of brutal. I was supposed to run almost five miles to Sam’s soccer game, but asked to be picked up instead because it was so horrible out there.

November 5 & 6: These were less runs and more run/walks. I only added 5 miles and an hour to my totals because I didn’t run all of it.

November 3: This was the first 10k I’ve run. (Run for the Parks 10k) It’s such a great starting point for me to improve upon. Yay, me. Also, I think it would have gone better had I actually trained for it. At all.

October 28: I ran around a field at Sam’s soccer practice. My pace was actually probably substantially faster, but I had to stop and rein in Jack and Quinn every time I passed them because they were constantly harassing people walking dogs. They love dogs.

October 16-17: These were run/walks. They weren’t great, but they got me back out there, which is what I’m aiming for in October.

September 21: This was the Kensington 8k. I ran it 17 minutes faster this year than I ran it last year. I may have peaked. I doubt I will ever see this kind of improvement in one year again. :)

September 13 & 14: These three runs are my Reach the Beach runs. My first and third runs seem to be my fastest pace ever. In fact, only 1-1/2 miles of those runs had pace averages of more than 12 minutes per mile. I even ran a couple of sub-11 minute miles. I feel incredibly awesome about this.

September 4: I needed this one so bad. This is the distance and pace requirement of all three of my Reach the Beach relay legs. I’m so relieved that I am able to put this one up there now, just before the race. Now I just have to be able to do it two more times in 24 hours.

September 2: You know what sucks to run in? 91-degree humidity. Ugh.

July 29: Last time I ran in DC, it was 90-something degrees and humid. Running when it is neither of those things is not just an entirely different ballgame, but practically a different sport.

July 26: This was the BlogHer 5K. Guess what, people? Chicago is flat. That is the only explanation I can come up with for the time on that run. Either that or a GPS malfunction, which is entirely possible.

July 16-22: Running outside has been challenging because it’s so hot. Some of these runs included stretches where I walked. The 12 minute mile runs were on a treadmill.

July 15: It turns out that July is really hot. My 10am run this morning needed a couple of minutes of walking mixed in with the run.

May 30: Hip pain is back. :(

May 23 & 29: I had two great races on two days in a row and then a run on which I couldn’t get past 3.71 miles. I think it’s because it’s getting so hot out, I’m having a tough time and I have to look at when and with how much water I run. For the next few weeks, because I’m having a tough running time right now, I’m going to focus on diet and overall fitness and just try to get in 1-3 miles a day with one longer run a week. I’m going to try to get my groove back.

May 18: I would like you to look at that pace. I felt so awesome about that race.

May 5: Shitty day, shitty run.

May 3: Today someone was telling me about someone he used to run with who ran really slow—like 12 minute miles—when she was pregnant. I cried a little inside and then I went outside and ran two very fast (for me) miles. I will take inspiration everywhere I can get it.

April 29: I managed to talk Alex into going running with me. I’m starting him on the couch to 5K program. It’s actually working out really nicely because he runs waaaaay faster than me, so while he’s working on increasing his endurance, I’m working on increasing my speed. Win-win!

April 27: This was a weird run. I got lost and had to slow down and even stop a little bit to look at my phone for a map. I stopped my GPS a couple times when I did this. I actually went 5 miles in an hour and ten minutes or so with a 14:05 min/mi average. When I ran, I must have been going faster than I thought.

April 14: It felt great to do a long run. It gave me a lot of time to be mad at hills.

April 13: In addition to this run, I jogged a half mile or so with Sam and Quinn. It was extremely demoralizing when they jogged backwards in their Crocs and still ran faster than me. I hate kids.

April 12: I didn’t have a chance to run while my kids were at school, so I made them hang out at a track while I ran around and around in circles. In related news, circles are boring.

April 11: I ran in circles on grass at Sam’s soccer practice, while also watching my kiddos. Hence the super slow pace. But at least I was out there. Bonus: I didn’t twist an ankle on the field.

April 10: 90 godsdamn degrees. First run in a long time. But it felt soooo good.

  2. I am keeping up with your stats! I am starting to train for a 10k in April (have done some 5ks, but never ran the whole 3 miles!!). Keep up the good work and I will try to do the same…

  3. BADASS! I am so impressed, but I admit my favorite part is where you wrote in SHUT UP. Heh. I want you to know I went for a run yesterday, partly because you’re talking about it so much it makes me want to get back into it. :)

  4. ROCK STAR! 100 miles! that’s 1/4 of the way to my house from you!
    and I love how you are tracking this. But I would change “failure” day to “nonsuccess”. Sounds better that way. It’s all about the reframe.

  5. My end of March looks like yours…:( I am nursing some plantar fascia and ongoing knee issues as I head into a 5k this Sunday and a 10k next Sunday. I hope your hip is doing better. I think I’m going to buy new shoes (like many of your readers told you to do) and see how that goes. Good luck to Jack at the tournament!!
