Weekly Update *
Training continues for everyone and welcome to a few new additions: Aimee at I Tri to Be Me, Luke at the Super Fatlete , and Amy at Tri Tri Again.
Long run updates...I think they are starting to feel less scary for those reaching the higher numbers! Olivia at Blissful Runner tackled 20 miles, Nicki from Nicki's Nook took on 18 miles, and Amber (Girl with the Red Hair) reached 17 miles!! In addition, Aneta at Confessions of a Rambunctious Runner ran her longest yet at 15!! Meggan at On My Way to 26.2 will be running her longest to date this week - 11 miles!
Race Reports...Click on the links to read the race reports from the past week. Julie from Julie's Running Blog - Gopher to Badger Half, Becka at 50 Half Marathons... - Georgetown to Idaho Springs Half, Rene at the Amherst Shuffle - Crisman 5K . Oh, and Allie at The Constant Pursuit has a brand new PR for the half marathon!
I anticipate Katie at Legally Fit will have a recap of her 5K today (These posts take awhile to compile so they are pre-written on Tuesdays). Jon at SwiCycloRun is going through a bit of taper madness but should have a new race recap for us soon!
Molly at I'm a Sleeper Baker (who is trying not to freak out about the upcoming marathon) received some good advice for dealing with a blister. Ann at Sole Sisters had some blister issues after her long run this week too. Speaking of advice, Chris at Evolving through Running is seeking some advice on hydration packs.
It seems like a few of us are starting to see some better temperatures and running conditions, while others are suffering. Lisa at Lisa's Yarns had more reasonable tempertaures this week but it still hot for Kellie at Running Rodeo and Pam at Thirty Schmirty. Caro at Calinchen Runs dealt with rain, which is always an adventure.
Bobbi at Zero to 26.2 is getting her knee checked out this week - hope you are back to running soon!! Heather's (Crazy World of a Running Mom) shin pain is back, but she continues to have a great attitude about it.
