Link Love

Today’s Workout:

AM- 11 Miles with 8 @ Goal Marathon Pace- 6:25
-Took a quick pitstop in the middle of the marathon pace part…yikes! Otherwise this workout went better than planned. I felt smooth and focused on keeping good form and breathing. Hearing goal marathon pace always makes me laugh a bit. What exactly is goal pace? Can I say my goal marathon pace is 4 minute miles? lol.

PM- 3 Miles at a recovery pace.
-I’ll do this one tonight on the treadmill after the kiddos are asleep.

Remember when I wrote about running a 5K with my daughter HERE? Well I was approached by writer and runner Lacy Hansen to be a part of her series of articles about running with children. She sent me some questions and I felt truly flattered that she would include me. Here is the link for anyone interested in reading. Click Here

Kelsea and I thank you Lacy!!

  1. I love the article on you and your daughter racing together :). I always think it’s awesome when families run together and it was great for you to do it with her, especially when you could complete like 3 5Ks in that time period, I’m sure it meant a lot to her and you as well.


  2. Nice set of runs today! I always like doing doubles–that second one always seems to clear the junk from my legs. And how cool that you guys are featured in the article! Fantastic.


  3. Query: how do you do your MP running? I’m trying to picture seeing a girl run a 6:25 down the streets in my hood, and it would be impossible… many stop lights, tight turns, stop signs, jerks who don’t share the sidewalk. The only place I can run that speed is the treadmill, or the track. Do you do these workouts on the treadmill?


    • See, I have a benefit of being a suburban, beach town mom that ultra cool city girls like yourself do not have….calm roads. My neighborhood is flat and I have a 5 mile loop with barely any traffic. When I lived outside of Seattle though I did marathon pace work on the treadmill often. Some people act like the treadmill is terrible but it can be a great training tool. If the humidity is ridiculous or when I start doing 10-15 mile marathon pace runs, I will be on the treadmill with fuel by my side. I’m not training for a humid, 95 degree marathon where I have to dodge traffic, know what I mean?


      • I LOVE this response, I have just concluded that all my tempo work MUST be on the treadmill during Houstons hot and steamy months, I simply can’t produce the kind of paces I want/need outside in summer. Would love to see a post from your re the ‘fuel’ you mention – this side is still a mystery to me. Also a post on how you improved your marathon time so incredibly and in such a relatively short period of time. I have just agreed to run the paces my coach wants me to in the run up to Houston but I’m nervous about where the improvement comes, I mean I feel like if I can train harder then I ought to? Would love to hear how you managed such a rapid improvement. pretty please?!


      • I’d personally recmomend getting help and advice from other experienced online marketers on a regular basis instead of depending on ebooks and tips that can only get you so far (if they get you anywhere at all). Having been where you were once before I know how is it to struggle to make a profit online and worrying about wasting your money. Some advice I would give you is to never stop testing methods and never give up. Once you find the right niche and learn to market it right you’ll start to get the hang of things then you’ll really start to earn money.


  4. I’m laughing at your comment about what MP really is. I’ve been wondering the same thing as I’m starting to train for NYC. My plan currently calls for 6 miles at MP, so do I use my current marathon time from a few weeks ago, or do I shoot for a faster time in NYC (although I hear it’s a hard course to do well on, so I’m doubtful I can be faster there)?? Still not sure what to do!


  5. Similarly, many ethical hacking courses teach students to
    create “phishing” scams. After Obama was reelected to a second term ass
    President of the United States there were masny social media
    posts hat were very radical. Make sure yyou don’t sign up for applications that may
    have a questionable background.
