Last Week Was Crazy Busy

Had a friend in from out of town and no time to blog! Then I flew home to Florida on Sunday. So, here’s last week’s running in a nutshell:   Distance: 17.13 miles Duration: 3:14:55 Split Pace: 11:30 min/mile   There was a big difference in the day-to-day split paces this week. See 10:20 min/mile […]

New Method of Posting Statistics

So, I’ve been recording my “Stats” for my own benefit, but as has been apparent, I am really, really lazy about getting on a blogging when I’ve gone for a run. I’m constantly posting my stats late (as well as missing weekly blog features like #FitFriday and The Weekly Cool Down, which I will try […]

Official Training Commences!

As of yesterday, the Official Walt Disney World Marathon Training Program has commenced. My “real” training has begun! This training program consists of two forty-five minute runs and one “long” run a week. For simplicity’s sake, I will be now recording my runs in miles instead of kilometers, as the long run goals set out […]

Pop Tarts.

Let me tell you what running on Pop Tarts was like: The first thirty minutes are great! Lots of energy, right? But after that first thirty, you get thirsty and you start to taste that Pop Tart again. You’re drinking way more water than usual. That Pop Tart may as well have been made out […]

Lazy Blogging, Late Stats, Paula Deen, Grisly Disney, Civil Rights, Food Overload & Mizuno’s

I have been such a shite blogger over the last several weeks. I’m sorry. Things started out so well. Let’s start over together: Hi, I’m Amanda. This one time I went for a run and a bird shit on me. Okay, so what’s the craic? What’s been happening? I worked Taste of London last week […]

#FF #FitFriday

(A little bit of Girl Power for your Friday Morning) Went for a quick run yesterday, but didn’t record as I went to work a very long shift at Taste of London. I’m off to work again today, but didn’t wake up in time for a run :S All of this inspiration is making me […]

Pianos, Guitars, and Scarves, Oh My!

Picking up the piano for the first time in six or seven years. I played for about a decade, then forgot it all because I hated it. So, now I’ve got two instruments to practice – piano, and the guitar – and both of them I suck at! I’ve been sitting around working out my […]

I forgot to record a run again!

I went running yesterday. I took lots of walking “breaks” because I was feeling a little on the tight side to begin with and didn’t want to push it, and because I thought it would be good to get used to some walking. They weren’t regular, timed intervals. Didn’t seem to slow me down too […]

Want to see something gross?

You can see every blood vessel in my transparent legs! Gahh!!! 😛   So, today’s run was pitiful. I was feeling some “Lady Pains” and running was exacerbating it. Ran half of a small run and ended up turning around pretty much walking the whole way home. Yikes. I shall pick up some pain relievers […]

Ailments! Oy Vey!

My back and shoulders are so bloody tight that every morning I wake up feeling like something has popped out of place, but it hasn’t, it’s just tightness! I feel really lopsided as well! It was irritating and worrying me on my run this morning. I kept trying to pull down my right shoulder. Gonna […]
