Goal:

Cut some time off of my marathon PR (3:32:43) so I can improve my chances of registering for Boston 2015. It's great to say I "BQ'd" but I want to say I ran it!

    Refuge 6 mi 00:52 08:41 pace

    Wasn't sure what I was going to do today.. Legs were very heavy so I did a mile warmup and then a semi-steady state run for the middle 4 miles and a cooldown mile. Splits for the middle 4: 8:1... read more

  6. RUN
    Intervals 6.01 mi 00:52 08:34 pace

    Workout was warmup, 3x10:00 at threshold pace with 2:00 recovery and a cooldown. Threshold pace is apparently around 10k pace. The last 10k I ran was Wine Cellar in 2012... My pace there (which was... read more

    AM Mill 4 mi 00:35 08:41 pace

    Banking those miles. I probably should have turned on my AC. I couldn't cool down after the run and my makeup kept running pretty much right as I put it on. I cranked up the AC in the car on m... read more

  11. RUN
    Devil's Kitchen/Foster Lane 8.03 mi 01:11 08:47 pace

    This was actually two runs. I ran alone the first 4 miles, then drove about 10 minutes down the road to Wayne and Jenna's new house to run with them and Ben. This was a hill workout too, espec... read more

  12. RUN
    Marion 12.07 mi 01:54 09:27 pace

    Slooow lonely run. I had to get it done early today because we were timing a race at 8am. Left the house at 5:00 when it was pitch black. Enjoyed the run but not the slow pace. Oh well!

      Nice miles! Sometimes I think easy slow miles are good for us, or at least I hope so bc I've been running a lot of them. :)

      I've also had a lot of slow runs lately. I think it's humidity! I've noticed on long runs late morning when the humidity starts to clear out I can breath/run better. Good job getting them in so early!

    Bad day and even the run couldn't fix it. It was freaking hot again (91)! Saturday it will be cooler though. This was slow but it's just miles in the bank.

      Ok. I finally found it. I was tired this AM and brain wasn't quite functioning. Anyway, all my paces seem kinda slow, so if I go that slow, I shouldn't feel bad, and if I go faster I should just feel good about it? And not try to come up with some crazy goal just bc I can run a bit quicker than suggested? I never had to worry about this when I was a part time runner. Lol

      I'm guessing your pace is slow because of the recent race time you entered?? Especially if you used a recent marathon. (Not that I'm calling you slow :)) Maybe try a 5k time or just lie on the marathon time to get it closer to your goal time. It gives a large range for most of the steady runs so just try to be in that range. I use this loosely but I love it as a guide. I think most of the time we run too fast on our easy and long runs which is not important.

      One option for a long run is to do a few miles in the middle at race pace on tired legs. That could be beneficial.

    Sports Complex Intervals 5 mi 00:43 08:41 pace

    Workout was warmup, 6X5:00 with 60 second rest, cooldown. This should be at "Threshold pace" but I don't have much speed this week. My goal was sub 8:00. Paces: 7:56, 7:55, 7:55, 7:4... read more

    AM Mill 4 mi 00:35 08:50 pace

    I usually try to add some speed on the mill but today was about zoning out and getting it done.

  19. RUN
    Track 3 mi 00:25 08:29 pace

    Went to the track to run easy with Wayne and Jenna. Small group for today's run.

  20. RUN
    Spillertown/Cedar Grove 5.1 mi 00:45 08:46 pace

    NOOO motivation today. I really need a rest day but I would rather wait until later in the week. Of course once I got out there it was fine.
