The Fairest Week in Review: 9/16

Moon can’t make it today, but – IT’S HER BIRTHDAY! WEEEEEE!!! Everybody wish her a happy one! 😀 😀 D Glorious. Okay. Training last week. It started out well – on Sunday I knocked out a 16 miler at decent speeds. Unfortunately my Tuesday run was rough and my Thursday run was even rougher. I couldn’t figure out what went wrong until after the Thursday run when I realized that my bit of a cough and slight soreness of throat added up to a cold. Not a severe one – I’m already almost over it – but just enough...

The Fairest Week in Review: 9/9

Whew. Long day. Long weekend! I started last week by running outside for the first time in forever and ended it with the Electric Run 5K (more on that tomorrow). Teaser: I think it went pretty well! TEASER TEASER TEASER TEASER WOOOOO I will tell you this about the Electric Run: I did it sans iPod because I was promised music throughout the course. This was not 100% delivered (I said more on that tomorrow) but I actually turned on some speed, probably thanks to my running companion Scott (I SAID MORE ON THAT TOMORROW). It did lead me...

The Fairest Week in Review: 9/2

I just completed my first outdoor run in… forever. More on that later this week, but needless to say, I am tiiiired. On that note: happy Labor Day! I hope you’re thoroughly enjoying your day off. Also, I hope you have a day off! And CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who finished the Disneyland Half, 10K, 5K, etc. over the weekend! Last week was something of a back-to-basics training week for me. I didn’t do any really long runs, instead logging three eleven milers. It’s been pretty hot and humid here, and even at steady, baseline speeds I ended each drenched...

Fairest Week in Review: 8/26

Hello, humans! In case you weren’t aware, Moon’s mother has been in the hospital, and I haven’t wanted to bug her about the whole blogging thing while clearly more pressing matters are at hand. That’s why you’ve been suffering through my solo efforts so long! However, the most recent update (as of this evening) is that the situation has improved somewhat, and thus I’m optimistic that she’ll be able to drop in this week for at least one post. Regardless, I do hope you’ll stick with me in the interim! I know, I know, our entire shtick kinda rests...

The Fairest Week in Review: 8/19

Hi guys! Still me for the time being, I’m afraid. Moon’s mom is still having medical issues so I’m holding down the fort. She does tell me she managed to sneak in a 1.25 mile run, so girl is keeping it going. Send good vibes her way! 🙂 Okay, let’s see. My training this week went fine, except for the part where I flew off the treadmill, but really that was fine too. Although now I’m kicking myself for not titling that post “You Can Fly, You Can Fly, You Can Fly Off the Treadmill.” Wasted opportunity! It’s been...
