As the crow flies straight, so to did I focus solely on my mission of running major race events this year and becoming a “runner”. Major events for me, anyways. Specializing in a way I never have. I do not know exactly how many miles I put in, though it was never enough. At least, it… Continue reading Msfit Log: 12242016 – Unstrategic Planning
I cannot believe I made it here. Well, I can, but I can’t. You see it didn’t happen exactly as I had planned – but I made it all the same. I did what I said I would and that, in and of itself, is a win. Did I win? No. Not any medals anyways.… Continue reading MsFit Log: 10072016 – There She Goes.
My six weeks are up. Today I ran my first 5 km trail loop since the stress fracture. You know… The one I obtained by being a little over zealous in my last race [she says to the two people who actually read her posts.. Ps. Hi Mom]. I even had to pull out of… Continue reading MsFit Log: 08092016 – Goodbye Break.
Two weeks ago was a ground breaking weekend – only my second time on my mtb this year and I rode a 50km mountain stage race with ~1800m of elevation gain, followed by a 25km trail run the very next day. What was this madness called you ask? A Half Donkey. I know – awesome… Continue reading Msfit Log:07132016 -Rundle’s Revenge.
Taper (or deload for the lifters of the world) is just that. Ease off, slow down and lighten up. Call it what you will. For me this essentially means chilling out for a week before a major race. Simple, yes? No. Not quite. You see, 2 months ago my training was going exceptionally well; predictable,… Continue reading Msfit Log:06222016 -Cookie Dough & the Art of Taper.
“Not-sorry” to disappoint you drama worshipers out there, this isn’t a post about some sort of office affair. I have been MIA again to this blog blog in a good way! The last 2 months have not only been jammed packed full of training and loading and de-loading and loading back up again – I… Continue reading Msfit Log:04242016 -When Love & Work Collide
Well, I did it… [The crowd roars as MsfitMegs blazes across the finish line like a beam of sunlight penetrating the darkest of days]… okay, not quite. Truth is, I am not looking for any sort of acknowledgement. What I was looking for, I already found – and that my friends, is confidence. Not confidence… Continue reading Msfit Log: 03142016 – seeing double
“How to train for a half marathon by only running your LSDs”… that is what this post should be called. A close second was “Why can’t I fit my runs in”. Tough Call. This is what I decided to go with instead… Ready? My first half. (By MJ aka BeMightyLegsMegs) I have three goals going into… Continue reading Msfit Log: 02132016 – half time; half the time.
I have not written for awhile. In some ways, this is by design. In others? I have been lazy. You see, in my profession I spend a lot of time on the computer. And work can reach me everywhere – ipad, ipod, cell, desk top. Does this mean I dislike what I do? Au contraire.… Continue reading Msfit Log: 01232016 -lazelations.
