Ask A Running Coach Q & A

ask a running coach Q & A

  I ALWAYS seem to have random questions to ask a running coach. Thankfully, I have Laura who is always so happy to answer any of my questions with explanations that always make sense. Last week I asked Laura to take two of my most recent running questions and expand the answers into a post that I […]

  I can’t believe that my third week of training with Laura is now complete. The miles are flying by and I am LOVING every single workout she throws in my direction. This week definitely involved more challenging workouts. I had a tempo run, treadmill hill workout and a last-minute progression run on the treadmill added […]

  This was my the first week of my summer training with Laura. I’m not training for a race just yet, she’s just giving me a month of workouts that mix up my mileage and rejuvenate my routine in preparation for maybe a Fall half marathon. I believe I ran 41 miles and I never […]

That Time I Didn’t Finish A Race

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already heard that I didn’t finish yesterday’s More/Fitness Women’s Half Marathon. Let’s start from where we left off yesterday morning. My cousin Amy and I did our usual pathetic selfie shot while waiting in line for the Port O Potties. It was a bit chilly but […]

Let’s Talk Overtraining

Rosh Hashanah and Women’s Health Run10Feed10 info

Rumor has it today is already Wednesday. And, get this, Rosh Hashanah begins tonight at sundown. The holidays are super early this year and while I am never one to turn down challah, apples and honey, I do have a bit of trouble switching from summer mode to fall mode so quickly. The fall produce is a bit behind the […]

Robert McAvoy 5 Mile Race Recap (2013)

When I turned 35 a few months ago, I entered a new age bracket. And, I have concluded that checking the 35-39 box isn’t half bad. I decided at the last minute to run the Robert McAvoy 5-mile race in Long Beach yesterday morning and actually finished second for my age group. The weather was icky, sticky and misty. The boardwalk […]

Monday Morning Science Experiment

Monday morning greets me with what seems to be the new norm for us here in New York – 20 degrees, feelin frigid with a gust of wind every few seconds. Last winter was so mild i just figured it would happen again this year. Clearly I was wrong. Today may be a rest day. […]
