Getting caught up! Not like I have much time left. Eek.Continue reading “2021 NYC Marathon Training: Week 12”
A little behind on these posts, so I am playing catch up! I’ll try to post a few over the course of this next week.
Week 11 of training was my highest mileage in a long time: about 50 miles.
Finally! The Bronx 10M.
I was signed up for the Bronx 10 Mile in 2019, but my feet hurt (my long bout of plantar fasciitis had started just a couple of weeks earlier) so I didn’t run. Instead, I showed up with my camera and took some photos of fellow Harriers.
This year, I was good to go. Even if my dog wasn’t impressed.Continue reading “Not a Race: 2021 Bronx 10 Mile Race Recap”

Week 8 was decent! I feel like I’m slowly climbing out of whatever running hole I fell into. Here’s hoping I stay out.Continue reading “2021 NYC Marathon Training: Week 8”
Overall, week 7 of marathon training had a nice upward trajectory: iffy at the start, with me questioning my ability to run not only this marathon but at all, ever again; ending much better, with me only questioning other mysteries of life (what am I doing? why am I here? is time travel possible yet because I’d love a second chance at some stuff?).Continue reading “2021 NYC Marathon Training: Week 7”
No running took place in week 6.
While I did make an attempt on Sunday after I took the below photo (in light rain, which I genuinely love to run in), I didn’t get more than a few seconds in before calling it off. My right heel still hurt too much, for reasons I still don’t understand.Continue reading “2021 NYC Marathon Training: Week 6”
