“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.
In less than 3 hours – it will be a new year – and I just learned a valuable lesson. Well, allow me to rephrase that. I just reminded myself of a valuable lesson. I was having a conversation with someone about how their 5K race training was not going very well. The elusive 4… Continue reading Msfit Log: 12312015 – a relentless new year.
Training outdoors in the winter adds a new element of fun. One that I anticipated but not quite to this extent. It feels primal. Especially given the lack of sunlight and early onset darkness we experience in the northern hemisphere. For a female with self-defense at the forefront, it also challenges me to stay on… Continue reading Msfit Log: 12062015 – snow day.
After nearly 9 weeks following a program with over 65% accuracy, one week downtime prior to the new one commencing feels like an eternity.
Change up. Running to the corner, do I turn left or right? The right is to survive and left I have a fight. Best respect the process of an amateur athlete, Time to rethink the program and focus on quick feet. Run a marathon sub 5, or beat a half in 2… be smarter better faster; that’s exactly what I’ll… Continue reading Msfit Log: 11212015 – poetry in motion.
5 lessons, 100 laps. 1) my Polar RS300X counts only 99, then “_ _” laps; 2) 25km, a new PDR (personal distance record); 3) the field house closes at 10:30pm; 4) sprinting the last 3 km was both exhilarating and painful; and 5) the field house staff deserve props for not kicking me out. I… Continue reading Msfit Log:11172015 – ahead by a century.
Yesterday was a big day for “Be Mighty Legs Megs”. I literally ran over my first half marathon… 22km/14 miles around an indoor track. As you question my sanity I assure you there were moments where I did the same. What seems crazier, is that I inadvertently forced myself to run without environmental distraction during those 84 laps.… Continue reading Msfit Log: 11022015 -a PDR.
I could not do what Kim did. Writing this blog is a clear indication…! http://devour.com/video/woman-runs-marathon-says-nothing-about-it/
I keep telling myself this as I hit week 4 of my marathon training program. Thus far, I have been hampered by family obligations, medial tibial stress, a hectic work and travel schedule and now? Bronchitis. I could not imagine what it would be like to manage kids at the same time. Props to you who… Continue reading Msfit Log: 10292015 – If it were easy, everyone would do it.
