Getting my stretch on!

Most runners aren't that flexible. I'm no exception. However, when Meb gets down, LaBella must try...historically...

I mean, "we" are running Boston "together" (lol)  so I kinda appreciate his insight as he's "better" than me. LOL...

So, as I'm now on my flexibility/high mileage/strength training/no sugar/clean diet kick....I figured, hey, why not improve on my latest stretch..and this was born :

Last week was another higher mileage week. I'm pulling up my connect account because there are too many runs to count and remember what I did. ok, 10 total...79 miles. 

Monday: 8 am 3 pm
Tuesday: 8 am 3 pm
Wednesday: 10 miles with fartleks
Thursday: 8 miles
Friday: 9.5 am and 3 pm
Saturday: 7 miles
Sunday 18.5 miles

Along with 5 days of strength training after the run. Most runs are 7 flat to 7:15. Post long or post tempo is closer to 7:30 pace. I did my long run at 7:44 pace with the last mile at 6:30 pace. So, I am behaving. 

Have a great week guys!


  1. I have no flexibity, and don't run enough to do strenth training (I look at it like this: strengh or run more, I run more... 1 day I will be running enough then I will do strengh)

    No Boston for me... I have friends who would like to run, but not me I would rather run something fun (montains in switzerland)

    Then Diet... chocolate, wine, beer, steak, coke, did I mention wine!!!
