  1. RUN
    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

  2. RUN
    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

  3. 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.

  5. 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

    great Tempo Saturday 7 mi 00:49 06:57 pace

    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

  7. RUN
    alright Lunch Miles 4 mi 00:30 07:25 pace

    Legs felt like achy garbage. Was going to go 5 but could only make myself go 4. Might have to take a day off just to let things heal.

    great 5 x 1-Mile Repeats 8 mi 00:54 06:47 pace

    Speedwork indoors on the treadmill today. 5 x 1-mile repeats with ~3:00 jog rest in between reps. Felt good throughout, probably should have pushed them a little faster since I was on the treadmill... read more

  10. RUN
    good Sunday Tempo Long 10 mi 01:11 07:06 pace

    Felt good for the first 8 miles or so, the last two were more of a slog. I've definitely lost some of the endurance I'd built up - also I've gained a few lbs which isn't helping... read more

  11. RUN
    good Lunch Miles 4 mi 00:30 07:28 pace

    Legs felt a little toasty from yesterday's intervals, but not bad. Had to make myself go and run a few miles, the motivation just wasn't there today.

    great 6 mi 00:48 08:00 pace

    Speed session out on the track at lunch today. Mile w/u, then 6x800 with 400m jog rest in between. Happy with the workout, much better than last week. Felt very strong at the end.

    Legs felt great today - also felt inspired watching the NYC Marathon this morning. Loved watching the close finishes.

  15. RUN

    Some indoor lunch miles today on the track at HealthTrack. Felt good, wasn't terribly enthusiastic about running but managed to stick it out for 4.

    good Track Work 6.25 mi 00:46 07:21 pace

    Did 6 x 800 with Woody out on the track this evening. At first the pace felt tough but after three reps I really settled in and was feeling great for the last two 800s. Did a mile warm with some st... read more

      Glad you are back to feeling better. Marc said he was ready to quit after 3 but just hung in there. Great night to be at the track...glad to see Leslie and Addie too. I didn't have a good workout but you guys helped push me at the end.
