CIM Training: Week 17

CIM Training: Week 17

After a week off from work it’s back to reality today. The past 7 days were such a great refresher and we the perfect mix of production around the house and fun family time. We also took family pictures on Saturday morning and Lavinia was […]

CIM Training: Week 16

CIM Training: Week 16

I can’t believe that Week 16 of my training for CIM is behind me! It was my last week of full on training before the taper started today. I was a little nervous that this week happened to fall at the same time that I […]

CIM Training: Week 15

CIM Training: Week 15

As I mentioned is last week’s training summary, I started off week 15 of CIM training out of commission due to a burst ovarian cyst. I was a little overly dramatic about it ruining the important week of training that I had on the schedule […]

CIM Training: Week 14

CIM Training: Week 14

Hey there friendly faces!  This training summary is coming to you a bit late this week. To say that the first half of this week didn’t go as expected would be an understatement. On Sunday morning we had a wonderful time at Lavinia’s Baby Dedication […]

CIM Training: Week 13

CIM Training: Week 11

CIM Training: Week 11

This is right around the time that marathon training starts to get hard for me. Not because of the high mileage or difficulty of workouts, but because marathon training is pretty monotonous. Lots of easy runs, workouts that are more difficult for me mentally than […]

CIM Training: Week 10

CIM Training: Week 10

10 weeks down, 8 to go! I’m three weeks away from my next race and am feeling stronger every week. Last week I had two big workouts that were very different from each other – a speedy 16x 400m w/ 1 minute rest + a […]
