How Amber Got Her Groove Back…

March 27, 2008

Week #4; Wednesday: The weather today was absolutely GORGEOUS and I didn’t waste a second (starting at 3:01 pm, of course). I did my long FUN run today since I’m gonna be passed out on Miami beach on Saturday morning. I cut my usual long FUN run down to 10 miles; I don’t know why […]

Yo, I’m starting to suck!

March 25, 2008

Rest of Week #3 and first part of Week #4: My bad, my bad, my bad!  I’ve not been doing a good job of keeping up with the log.  I have, however, been doing some serious runnin’.  I’m gonna try and get back in the groove though….I’m not sure if any team members are actually […]

Maine Track Club chooses Peak Performance as title sponsor for 2008 Maine Marathon Don’t mind me, I’m learning how to use the “blog this” features on the PRWeb site

Catch Up…

Week #3; Tuesday: Well, runners, I’ve been doing a bad job of keeping up with the running log. I know everyone has been in tears, impatiently waiting for the next blog entry (I know you all enjoy hearing about my black toenails and sore muscles 🙂 ) Anyway, last weekend’s fun long run was pretty […]

My turn on the treadmill!

March 14, 2008

Week #2; Thursday: Wow, I got a go on the treadmill for my Thursday run!  The Vocus gym was almost empty, save for myself and Kate.  What a great time! Since I have been meaning to work more on my speed training than distance, I ran two miles @ 7:48 minute pace.  I’m still planning […]

Week #2; Wednesday: My Wednesday workout consisted of taking my parents’ Japanese exchange student salsa dancing on U St. 🙂 Oh my, what fun! We got there in time for her to take lessons, which was hilarious, not because she didn’t do well; but it was hilarious because she caught on really quickly and then […]

Drop it like it’s hot (yoga)

March 11, 2008

Week #2; Tuesday: Hot yoga tonight with my dad 🙂 Nothing much to report there. I think I’ve managed to both scare and motivate myself by announcing that I want to run the Marine Corps Marathon. Kate’s post made me stop and think about the fact that I haven’t actually run a full marathon in […]

Just another day…

March 11, 2008

Week #2; Tuesday: Well, I don’t have much to report as far as Monday’s workout goes. I opted for the gym; the elliptical machine and lots of leg presses, to be exact. I really hope I’m getting stronger… The more training I do, the more fun the Marine Corps Marathon looks. Hmmmm. Just as a […]

Beautiful, just beautiful!

March 9, 2008

Week #2; weekend: Saturday’s morning long run turned out to be beautiful!  My Colombian, soccer player friend Daniel came out to run with me.  We got a rather late start, about 10:30 am or so, but we finished quickly so it all evened out.  We started our run in the pouring rain, which is always […]

Back at it

March 6, 2008

Week #2; Wednesday: Today was considerably colder than Monday.  Nonetheless, I did a quick 3 miles just to loosen the legs once again.  I think  that’s all I have to report as far as running goes…almost everyone has dropped out of Saturday’s fun long run already 😦  which is fine, since I’m planning on having […]
