  1. RUN
    great Running with AP in spirit 3.1 mi 00:28 08:57 pace

    Since I couldn't be in Kennesaw in person to run with AP on his first run back I did my own 5K on the treadmill tonight... and you know what? I didn't even mind that it was on a treadmil... read more

  2. RUN
    alright Some simple miles 4.4 mi 00:41 09:19 pace

    After a really long, but positive, day at work where I was either on the phone or video conferences almost the whole day I needed to clear out the mind and reboot. So I laced up the Olympuses (Oly... read more

  3. RUN
    alright Relearning my limits 5.51 mi 00:55 09:55 pace

    After the debacle from Sunday I'm trying to re-learn how to judge what is within my comfort zone, what is comfortably stretching that comfort zone, and what is WAY outside the comfort zone and... read more

  4. RUN
    good 3 cutdown + some cooldown 4.5 mi 00:39 08:37 pace

    Took advantage of the light rain and a bit lower temperature this afternoon to get in a few miles. I thought I'd just put in 4-5 miles and then as soon as I started I scrapped that plan becau... read more

    After the 18 on Sunday my quads were really sore and I felt like I needed a few miles just to see if I could work out some of that soreness. So I headed out in the heat and put in a few miles. I ... read more

  6. RUN
    alright The return of Stupid Adam ;-) 18.02 mi 03:07 10:21 pace

    After nearly two weeks off I returned to running this past week. I was being very smart about it and not pushing too hard, too far, or too quickly. I kept the mileage reasonable earlier in the we... read more

      Ah, I can relate so much Adam..life and work have gotten in the way of my marathon training too. It's a bit of a double edged sword, the essence of being a runner (and particularly as you get into the longer distance races) is pushing yourself, and sometimes that can backfire, I have had a few memorable instances of that myself. Still, sounds like a good overall run. Already did some foam rolling?

  7. RUN
    good Building it back 8.12 mi 01:23 10:12 pace

    Got up super early to hit the road with Shawna B. , Lisa, and Nadia. I'm still trying to build back without overdoing it so I decided I'd meet them after they had done the first 5 of the... read more

  8. RUN
    alright 3.1 mi 00:35 11:08 pace

    Well this one didn't feel as good as yesterday's run but it was still great to be out there running again. I'm definitely taking it a bit easy to let the legs and lungs come back an... read more

  9. RUN
    great First miles in almost 2 weeks 3.1 mi 00:29 09:23 pace

    So due to some respiratory congestion I've been out of action for almost 2 weeks. Given that as the backdrop this run felt great. My legs didn't feel wonderful and I probably pushed a l... read more

  10. Hi friends. I haven't left or gone anywhere. I went to a fun convention over the US Labor Day long weekend and just before I did I caught some sort of cold. It morphed into a nasty chest co... read more

      Thanks everyone. It was tough not being able to get out there and I tried to spend time looking at everyone's workouts but it was so painful to NOT be able to get out there myself that I just stayed away. But I'm back at it and hoping to stay healthy!!

  11. RUN
    alright Miserable Mill Tempo Miles 5 mi 00:44 08:53 pace

    I really wish I could have run outside tonight because it was beautiful here in Rockville, MD. Low humidity, mild temperature, very light breeze... but I couldn't get out before dark so off t... read more

  12. RUN
    alright 5 to cap the week 5.05 mi 00:45 08:50 pace

    I meant to get up early and go for 10 with Shawna B. but my brain said "NO!" and wouldn't allow me to hear any of the three alarms I had set to wake up. So I waited until just befor... read more

  13. RUN
    good Sweaty Saturday on the run 13.26 mi 02:09 09:41 pace

    After the run I had on Thursday I felt like my body was telling me I really needed that cutback week I forgot about LAST week. So I took ANOTHER day off yesterday and, frankly, with the weather as... read more

    tired Struggling 6.5 6.5 mi 01:04 09:54 pace

      Good run, Adam. Some days it isn't easy, but you got it done, and that takes a lot and counts for a lot!

      I have been having runs like that lately, I think heat dehydration, etc. make these things happen, and also you are still recovering from last week. I had about two-three of these and the next week was way better. Hang in there.

      The heat was ridiculous. Way to get it done nonetheless.

    Beautiful morning in Farmington, CT so I made sure to get up early and hit the nice trail loop around the hotel and United Technologies campus. It's a very nice path mostly of crushed gravel ... read more

  16. RUN
    good Nice evening jaunt 8.01 mi 01:17 09:38 pace

    I realized today that this weekend was supposed to be a cutback weekend so yesterday's 18 was a little more than I needed. So today I was going to take the day off. But as it got to early ev... read more

    good Runs are getting longer 18.63 mi 03:10 10:12 pace

    Woke up early to knock out the 18 I wanted for the day. No pace goals but since I was down at the river running a flat route I decided I needed to add some hills. So I climbed from Columns to Pape... read more

    great Wonderful 6 tonight 6.02 mi 00:52 08:38 pace

    Wow that felt good! I think that may be the first run in a while where every mile was below 9min/mi and it wasn't a struggle to keep that pace at all. Even for the uphill parts of miles 2 an... read more

    great Fast 50 with Shawna 4.8 mi 00:50 10:25 pace

    There aren't too many people for whom I'd gladly wake up at 4:30AM to meet at 5:30AM for a run. Shawna B. is one of those few. She had a speed workout today so it was off to the races. ... read more
