30 Day Running Challenge: Day 18

What are your PRs? Time, distance?

My PR during a half was 2:03.. and I am determined to beat that!

My best chipped time during a 5k was 27 minutes, but I clocked in at 21:22 while running 3 miles one night.  I was fueled by rage at something and was just killing it!

I hope to set a PR of under 5 hours in my marathon, so fingers crossed.

Again, I am not a fast runner, but I keep it movin’!

Watch Me

30 Day Running Challenge: Day 17

How many miles a week are you usually running and what’s your normal pace? How would you like to improve this?

My mileage has been pretty low lately, around 20-25, but is increasing significantly with my training plan for the October marathon.

I am not a fast runner by any means and usually come in around 10 minutes per mile on a long run, but have noticed that my pace has really picked up during shorter runs, coming in more at 9 minutes per mile.

It would be ultimate goal to run a marathon at a 9 minute mile, but being a super asthmatic, I try to just focus on distance and not so much time, but I will get there.

Consistency and speed work is the key!
