    great Lunch Treadmill Progression 6 mi 00:42 06:55 pace

    Felt good today - started at an 8:00/mile pace and progressed down to 6:00/mile pace for the last mile. Felt good throughout, legs felt great today.

    good Lunch Miles 3 mi 00:22 07:19 pace

    Some light work.

  3. RUN
    good Lunch Miles 5 mi 00:38 07:31 pace

    Haven't been feeling well the past couple of days so I took some rest. Ran into Woody at the gym today and he inspired me. It's much easier to find the desire to run when you have other p... read more

    good Lunch Miles 5 mi 00:35 07:01 pace

    Felt good today - ran out some work anxiety at lunch time. Have a good weekend everybody!

  5. RUN
    good Treadmill Run 5 mi 00:36 07:15 pace

    Felt good today - the blister area is still a little tender, but it doesn't hurt and I think it's getting better and better every day.

  6. RUN
    good Back At It 3 mi 00:23 07:46 pace

    Blister is mostly healed - starting out slow; switched to a new pair of Asics Gel-Storm running shoes, they seem nice and light but also very narrow. Jury is still out. Felt good to work the legs a... read more

  7. Have taken the last 8+ days off of running completely. The main reason is because of a huge (painful) blister that developed over the course of the half marathon - the other reason is because I hav... read more

    alright Schaumburg Half Marathon 13.1 mi 01:27 06:37 pace

    Ran in the Schaumburg Turkey Trot Half Marathon this morning in Busse Woods Forest Preserve. Pretty nice morning for a race, sunny, mid-30s and a steady south wind at the start of the race. I was g... read more

      We all have days like that. As you said, no one nails every race - there are too many factors and variables. Your splits for the last 3 miles are pretty much identical to mine in the Chicago Half in September. You know - the race where you breezed by me with 2 miles to go. So it wasn't your day, but big picture stuff - you've had a hell of a year, including a 2:59. TWO FIFTY NINE!!!

      Splits here are pretty damn good Adam, I don't know about you, but I really don't like the half marathon. I'd rather run a 10 mile or a marathon. Anyway, good to take a break. Great race either way buddy!

    good Lunch Run 5 mi 00:39 07:42 pace

    No idea on the time - forgot my watch and my phone. My legs are still not feeling great - wonder if some of the post-marathon lbs I've gained over the past 6 weeks are contributing to some of ... read more

    good Sunday Run 8 mi 01:00 07:32 pace

    Ran through the rain the whole way but hey, it was 50 degrees out so I was not complaining. Felt good, started really easy and migrated towards a more normal pace. Happy with the run, officially si... read more

      50 degrees!? MJ and I are very jealous of the Chicago weather. How's it looking for the half?

    alright Outside 4 4 mi 00:32 07:52 pace

    About 1/2 a mile into this run, I regretted the decision to run outside. I had some flimsy gloves and the wind was going pretty much straight through the pants I had on...oh well, I lived. Legs fel... read more

  12. RUN
    great Treadmill Speedwork 6.5 mi 00:45 06:50 pace

    Might have gone outside except for the wind. Decided on some treadmill work instead - did a 3200/1600/800 workout. Mile w/u and mile c/d. Felt strong today, my legs felt good and the achiness from ... read more

    great Lunch Miles 5 mi 00:39 07:46 pace

    Just some easy miles on the indoor track - legs felt achy at the beginning but felt a lot better at the end.

  14. RUN
    good Sunday Long 10 mi 01:15 07:28 pace

    A pleasant light, fluffy snow fell throughout my run today which was pretty to watch. Settled in a nice groove for the middle miles of this run and then bumped up the pace for the last 3. Legs felt... read more

    Met the gang at the gym. 2-mile warmie and then 5-mile tempo run on the treadmill. Averaged 6:40 for the tempo miles and felt good the whole way. Legs felt much better than yesterday. Always more f... read more
