Purple was the theme of the day. First time doing the 15/1 intervals and it didn’t suck. I even did the actual 1 minute rest instead of 2. Hubby got mad because I was complaining about being tired but I still went out to run. I get super antsy now if I don’t run! I […]

Another great run around my “neighbor track”. It’s a huge block of houses that has been my running route for the last few weeks. Two laps around it is more than 2 miles which is perfect for this kind of training. It keeps me close to home, has no huge streets to cross or stoplights […]
