Storm Running

I just felt compelled to mention after running in the storm/rain yesterday that nature is actually quite peaceful in the thick of it. We tend to look out the window or drive in our cars with the rain smashing against the windshield and think that this terrible weather is a mess. Maybe it was because I was doing intervals so the sound of my breathing and heart thumping were chaotic compared to that of the rain hitting the cement. But I enjoyed it and urge fair weather runners to give it a try. Running in a storm is far more interesting than running on a treadmill.

This is also something I would like to try....

Pirates Cove - First Trail Run

My thighs were built for trails.

March 19th brought a rainy day for my first trail run at Pirates Cove in Sausalito. Trails will see me again. This is yet another thing that I must conquer.... I'm not sure if its the workout or the getting dirty that I like better.

I'd like to post pictures but I don't know how to.

On another note, my Grandmother's potato chip cookies are to die for. I'm getting the recipe and I'll post on here... Just so the poor saps who read this will have something delicious to take from it.

I'm on Week 6 of 16 for my break 4:00 regimen. Legs are feeling excellent with little fatigue and I'm still doing spin 2 days a week, weights 3 days and other recreational activities.... The trigger point I was forced to do last night helped get out any knots in quads left over from the trail run.

That is all. For now.

New to blogging

I'm new to the blogging thing. I'm embarking on a journey of breaking 4:00 and maybe if I blog about it, it will further my dedication.
I'm on my 5th week of my second marathon training. Last week I was infected with the plague and although I encountered a minor setback in training, I PR'd at the Shamrock half marathon so overall i'm feeling pretty confident.
I hope anyone who can view this will find it helpful and/or amusing. I'll try my best to keep it entertaining and suggestions are encouraged!
