On October 29th I will run 13 miles

Posted by Scott Swires on Thursday, October 20, 2011, In : official training training 
About 3 weeks ago I went out for my 10 mile run. It was the longest run I've ever been on in my whole life, and the next longest I will do will be 13.1 miles, half of a marathon, on October 29th!

The night before I ran the 10 I was eating sushi in celebration of my 26th birthday with one of my dear friends here. As I was talking to her about how I had to run 10 miles the next morning, I realized, that although I thought I had to be a lot nervous than I was, I really didn't feel nervous about i...

I think I can vs. I know I can

Can I just start off by saying I ran 8 miles yesterday!!!!

My clock said 1 hour and 18 minutes. But then my encouraging housemate reminded me that I started my clock a minute or two before I started by run, so I may have really done it in 1:16 or 1:17 every minute counts! This means that I had a pace slightly below 10 minutes per mile. If I could keep that pace for 8 miles, surely I can keep it for 13! Which means I could run a half marathon in roughly 2 hours and 15  minutes or so...OK my ma...

"Hi, I'm training for a half marathon"

Posted by Tabitha Swires on Sunday, August 28, 2011, In : official training training 
I'm trying to think of so many wonderful things to post about.

But my mind is failing me just now.

I really want to give you some fun details about the way my life has changed in the past few months because of training for this half marathon, but I feel like I can't put them into words that will suffice. So instead I will make you a pretty list complete with bullet points of the way I've been affected by training for this half.

Bullet points below:)

  • I'm stronger. I can see and feel my leg ...

I'm training for real now

Posted by Tabitha Swires on Wednesday, August 3, 2011, In : official training training 
When we got back from our holiday in Florida a dear friend of mine stopped in for a quick Hello:)

Calun: did you keep running over vacation?
Tabitha: I had to! I have no choice!! I already registered for the half marathon...
Calun: wow that's good that you kept up with it! That means your committed!
Tabitha: I don't feel very committed, but I'm registered to run the race so I guess that's what I'll do...

Its true. I don't feel committed. My housemate is up to 8 mile runs and I am only up to 3. G...

Well well well this month has turned out to be quite interesting. Definitely not a month dedicated to the beginning of my training, but with grace and strength from above I'm managing to squeeze into one month- vacation,rest,errands,helping get my in-laws new home in Florida ready, painting, swimming, going to Disney, AND training for a half-marathon which includes running three days a week and cross training two days a week with Yoga.

I know this doesn't sound like much of a Sabbatical ...

Training by Mickey's house

RUNNING RUNNING RUNNING...everything I think about has to do with RUNNING!

I wake up in the morning and think about what I will eat, and how much I will drink...whether it is a running day or not, everything I eat and drink has to do with "how will this help me in my running?" and "what will best FUEL my body?" Sometimes I get a little sad as I have these thoughts, because I remember back to the days where everything was DANCE DANCE DANCE. I would think, "what should I wear today? will i...
