Blogger's Block

Between the holidays and my recent blogger's block (aka writer's block), I haven't checked in via my blog in over a week! I have been wandering around all of your blogs though, in hopes of getting some writing and running motivation and inspiration. I think it is starting to work. Now I just need a few more hours in the day. Last week was crazy as far as finding time to run. I went to bed every night thinking, "I have to run tomorrow." So without much running to report, I will share my upcoming running plans instead.

As part of the runner series to get guaranteed entry into the St. George Marathon, I have to run two of nine designated races. I was originally going to run a half marathon and a 10k, but I decided to run a 5k on January 23 instead of one of the others. I haven't run a 5k in a long time, so I am going to really focus on speedwork and shorter runs until my marathon training starts on Janury 11. I am doing the FIRST training program for my marathon. More on that later...

So with a new week underway, the 5k training plan begins. Today's plan is a speedwork run on the treadmill. I'll let you know how it goes.

And I will leave you with a glimpse of two of the best things that have been keeping me so busy...


  1. VEry good reasons to take a little break.. Oh I LOVE LOVE the matching outfits. I do that too :)

    Of course you are on the Christmas Card list...I saved your address from the Giveaway LOL :)

    And 5K training sounds great! You will rock it. Winter Barbie 5K

  2. Time off can be a very good thing! I hope your speed-work went well.

  3. Love the pictures! I want it to snow here! I just finished the FIRST training for my first half marathon and I loved it! I will follow it again for my next one in April. I love the look of excitement on their faces :-)

  4. Many people from Phoenix run St George and I've heard its beautiful. Maybe one day I'll run it too but it requires doing the really long runs in the middle of the summer.


I love your comments! They make my day, so be sure to let me know you stopped by. And I always try to respond to your comments, so let me know if you have any questions for me or if there is anything you want to see on here!
