Hi runners. The race is just a few weeks away. It’s crunch time! I feel like I made some good strides this week…..literally and figuratively. I was able to get out for some really good runs and felt good for the most part. I do have some tightness in my foot, but that’s just part [...]

Hi runners. I had a good week of running. Chuck gave me a great schedule including  tempo work on a treadmill. Although I sometimes lose my mind on a treadmill, it’s really cut down on the pounding and allowed my foot to heal. I did get out for some longer runs….2 runs of 13 miles and 1 [...]

Training went very well this week. I ran 4 times, the most since my injury. My distances are still very minimal compared to what I am used to but I am just happy to be running again! I have noticed a huge drop in my endurance, out of breath very quickly. So along with working [...]

Posted on August 10, 2015 by Staff No Comments

What a trying week! I really felt like I was being tested this week, not so much physically, but mentally. I normally wake up at 5:30 so I can leave my house at 6 a.m. I do this so I can be back before my husband has to leave for work, and so it isn’t [...]

Diane’s Omaha 5K Training – Week 2

Posted on August 10, 2015 by Staff No Comments

Last week I had a really good 2 mile run. My injury continues to improve. I have learned how to use kineseo tape and I find the extra support really makes a difference. I was on my feet a lot this weekend, so I cross-trained on my road-bike. I have put a lot of miles [...]
