“So what are you training for?” “Oh, nothing. I just like coming to class.” Yeah.
Gilbert tricked us. He said we were to do five mile repeats. “That means you need to do the first one sloooooww. For you guys … a 6:50 pace.” So of course it seemed like everyone went out too fast. I was last in my group and coasted in at 6:45. I didn’t feel good […]
Or so says Dalton. But me, well, I don’t know about that. My back and leg have been in somewhat intense pain for about a week. I think it’s the sciatic nerve, though I have no clue about that stuff. I just know the pain starts in my left lower back, goes down by butt, […]

So Jessica and I joked the other day that the night before running class I should just sleep in my running clothes so that I could just wake up […]
I love me some fartlek. The 7-mile fartlek, which I ran this morning, is my favorite workout with the Gazelles. So much so, that I”m going to write one of those boring accounts of my workout. I don’t know why I like fartlek so much, maybe because with all those easy 1 minute legs to […]
