      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

    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

  8. RUN
    good Tempo work + cool down 3.72 mi 00:32 08:29 pace

    After my Baseline 5K I needed to get back to the hotel. So I took a bit of a circuitous route (and taking the opportunity to give the NCAA the raspberry as I ran by their HQ) and instead of just c... read more

  9. RUN
    good Baseline 5K 3.12 mi 00:25 08:01 pace

    Got to my hotel and felt the need to get out the door for some road time. I know I've lost a lot of speed in the last 6 months since most of my training has been ultra-marathon related (50K i... read more

      Good to be back. I hope I can continue to find the time to look in, post my training, and comment on everyone's awesome workouts. Summer life just got in the way of posting... everything was good, just hectic. I need the motivation here, though, so I'm going to try and hang around more!
