A new week! My running buddy has some major taper miles this week…so we shall see how the miles go! My next pacing event is this coming weekend – so I will be cutting back just a little as well.
These next few weeks are going to fly by and Hospital Hill is going to be here before I know it! While this mini-training cycle is set for the HH weekend, my 50-mile training cycle has started as well! The miles are super low at this point, so I will jump right in the first full week of June 🙂
A short drive away is Wamego, KS – home of the Wicked Marathon and Half Marathon! This is my first year running this course and minus some questionable weather, I really enjoyed the experience!

A short while ago, I read online that OOFOS was going to come out with a new recovery shoe! As a BibRave Pro ambassador, I was able to be one of the first to check out this new closed shoe design – the OOmg!
This week is another week of trial and error. My goals are to keep my pace low so my HR also stays low. I have a pacing event this weekend that would usually be an easy, easy pace for me – but I am nervous that due to my low mileage the past couple weeks, I am not sure how the weekend event will go.
Needless to say, with last week’s craziness, I am not jumping right into my next mini training plan…but I am still trying to move a little more everyday!
