I’ve decided to add in my splits from my Garmin. I was reading my old blog, and I did it a lot – it’s awesome for me to look back at how I was running. I know I could look on Garmin Connect, but this is so nice and easy. Though, I think I may just do it for specific runs, i.e.. long runs, speedwork, tempo, etc. Continue reading
Eep. That’s scary just typing that title.
I’m going for a BQ. I’m putting it out there into the universe. I want a BQ. I’m going to take steps though. I wrote about my goal for the CIM here, which is a 3:50 marathon.
Now, this is a big goal. And I’m not sure if it is attainable just yet. The A goal is to get a 3:50. The B goal is to sub 4 hours. Depending on my results from the 2017 CIM I will attempt a BQ the next year. (My BQ will be 3:40, thank goodness for getting older!!)
I’m going to track my progress, with blog posts. My half marathon training will finish in two weeks (!!) and then I will properly start on working to get to my goals.
So, in order to do this I believe I need to work on a lot of things. Continue reading
This is becoming a common theme. Not a great week.
On Thursday when I woke up my left eye was sore. I went for a run, and a surf, and it just got worse and worse. It ended up being scratched. I don’t know if any of you have had a scratched eye, but it is pretty much the worst thing ever. Sunlight hurts. I wear contacts, and am pretty much blind as a bat without them (or glasses). Trying to wear glassed while running in a warm environment also doesn’t work too well.
Oh well. Plenty of surfing early in the week to make it a little more fun. My training for the half is pretty much done, and I’m just going to be running for fun and to try and get my speed up to where it should be for my marathon training starting July. Continue reading

Overview: Not the week I was hoping for, but, I’m not really bothered by it. My training isn’t going well, which I know means I won’t PR at the Hapalua Half Marathon. That’s ok. I’m going to run it as a fun run – a nice long fun run!
Total weekly mileage: 16.3 miles
Well. It happens. You have good intentions to do something, then it fails.
I went to Kauai last week with my husband, and didn’t fit in my 3 mile runs. Then I got sick. So. Yea. That whole 3 mile a day for the month didn’t really work out. And I’m still sick.
I’ve been surfing. I did go on a couple of runs, and am planning on running tonight. I’ve done a teeny bit of weight training – but nothing really to write about.
My training for the Hapalua Half Marathon has been a complete flop. But you know what? I’m going to continue on, hope for the best. We will see how it goes. If I can manage a sub 2 hour half marathon, great, if not – it will be a good day for a run!
My focus now is the CIM. Continue reading
Another week of running, and another so-so week. I really do need to work on consistency. That is definitely my biggest downfall. But I did get in a quick island hop over to Kauai – so that’s pretty amazing!
A successful week! I ended up running every day, and since the start of March I’ve run at least 3 miles every day. I’m not sure if I’ll continue with the 3 mile streak, however I will try, but I’ll make sure I listen to my body. If I need a rest day, I’m going to take it.
