MAF Training Update

I've started this post a million times in my head and I'm finally sitting down and putting pen to paper.  I've been training via the MAF method for the past 11 weeks....meaning all my runs have been at my MAF heart rate (i.e., easy).  I've been a diligent student too - no cheating - except for … [Read More...]

Fiona will be 8 months old tomorrow.  Eight months?!  I sound so cliche but time really does pass in the blink of an eye.  I wish the same was true for training.
