About Me

I'll make you laugh, or break my neck trying. This is usually accomplished with daily bouts of swimming, biking and running. A former "chub-a-holic," I got fit and healthy the good old fashioned way and went from a mid-pack athlete to top age group runner and triathlete. I'm a Writer and USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach. I guess that makes me part Tina Fey and part Jillian Michaels. Visit my coaching site at www.fomotraining.com

Week 8: 800s on Track

Wednesday brought a return to Gazelles and a return to the track for 8 x 800m repeats with a 2 minute rest in between. While I was definitely pushing it through the repeats, I was able to fully recover during each 2-minute break which is a sign of a good fitness level. I ran in a pack with Jennifer, Dennis, Cindy and Mike. Frank and Marcy joined us for the last few as they are gearing up for Chicago in just a couple of weeks! They are both running so strong right now, but you can tell they are itching to get it done. I know the feeling--I can't wait until my taper in a few weeks!!

We rocked on the 800's. I actually feel it in my hamstrings this morning after a hill run. I might have overdone it a tad bit.
