Yesterday I was running here: Today I ran here: There was a 50 degree difference...I have traded tanning and hilly, sweaty morning runs for colder, albeit faster, runs. And so week 7 begins in my training for the NWM Half in DC.
I don't know what week of training I am in now but today was set for an 8 mile run. I have only run 8 miles (approximately) once before, and that was last May in Panama. Despite the pain and thus running setback I endured for weeks after, that was either my favorite or most … Continue reading Final Run in Barbados: Saturday Long Run
On Thursday I went a similar route as Tuesday's run, and the route I had originally set out to do for last Saturday's long run. This took me gradually but struggling uphill into Royal Westmoreland Golf Course. I logged 4.3 miles and got some wonderful rash on my right leg that stung me periodically throughout … Continue reading Thursday: Barbados Run #5 (Vacation’s almost over!)
Yesterday saw a half mile increase in the usual Tuesday run. As the half marathon training is progressing so is the mileage; Tuesdays are now for 3.5 mile runs. I hit the road again in the morning, after postponing my run for almost an hour because there was some intermittent down-pouring. The run itself was … Continue reading Tuesday: Barbados Run #4
Monday I did an easy but sweaty 2 mile run on the beach. Photos below of my footprints in the sand, the beach, and a very purple jellyfish I passed.
This morning I woke up at 6:20 and was on the road by 7:30. My pre-run meal was a banana, apple, and a chocolate peanut butter chia bar. The goal was 7 miles, and I had a vague "plan" of where to go. By that I mean I was going to leave the hotel, go … Continue reading Saturday: 7.2 mile Run #2 in Barbados
This morning was my first run in Barbados. Since I was traveling all day yesterday, I had to do my usual Thursday run today. After getting in late last night and subsequently going to bed late, I managed to get myself up around 7:30 and set out for my run at 8:30. There's a small … Continue reading Friday: Barbados Run #1
I am somehow still in college and on my last Spring Break. That means for nine more days all my posts will be made from my trusty iPhone. Hopefully I will be posting about each of my six runs while in Barbados (normally I won't be posting about every individual run), accompanied of course with … Continue reading FYI it’s SPRING BREAK
