Been absent over the past month or so. Slowly building back the miles on my foot. It’s been busy trying to get all the spring outside work done and keep training. As Porter said last week… “This training takes a lot of time & energy!”
Yes, yes it does. He really hit the nail on the head, it’s just building new routines.
Think some of it is that I’m nervous about pushing through that 6-8 mile wall that my body has had the past couple years. Working hard to build up the base to push through. We’re getting there as you can see below. Let’s let the numbers speak for themselves.

Key icing tip from eldest… “You have to bite on a towel until it numbs.” Good to know. For some reason it was easier on Sunday. Hopefully it gets easier the more you do it! Just know that, like running, it feels great after you finish.
Spent yesterday morning at the Girls on the Run 5K in our town. Saying this is a fantastic event is a gross understatement. It is a gift. So many amazing girls learning that they have the power to set and achieve goals, to push themselves physically wherever they are. It felt good to just be there. This year was a hot and humid morning, so it was more of a challenge. Kudos to everyone who took part.
How is your training going?
