Well, I did it again...took too much time off from blogging!  It's a vicious cycle...I don't blog...I feel bad about it...I feel so bad that I don't blog...I feel bad...

Anyway, I'm back!  So here's a quick update for my first day back!! 

When last we met, I had 2 weeks till my last half marathon.  It was quite a run!!  It was a fantastic run!!  My trainer, Kyle, predicted that I would shave off 10 - 12 minutes off my best previous time!  Amazingly, I really did take 13 minutes off my best time!  I ran the California Classic in 2:05:11.  My best half marathon has been 2:18!  Wow!!  I was pretty thrilled!

The secret, you may ask, is speed workouts!  That was the difference in preparing for this race.  Running 400s and tempo runs!  What a difference!

Hope your runs have been going well...I got hubby out for a run today.  I'm hoping I can keep him going out with me.  He even mentioned running a half marathon with me in November!  I'll keep you posted on his progress - keep good thoughts for me!  (His past experience with running was in the Army - not the  most pleasant memories!)

I'm almost at 40 followers - I'm excited!  When I reach 40, I'm going to hold my first giveaway - so keep checking back!  

And, here's a little preview of my next post...BACON!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy 4th of July!!

  1. Glad you're back to blogging! That is awesome that you shaved 13 minutes off your half marathon time! I've been diligently doing speed work in hopes of shaving time off mine as well. I'm glad to hear it worked for you.

    Mmmmmm, bacon. :)
