    good 8.16 mi 00:30 16.3mph pace

    Some cycle time during the storm while I watched Bachelorette. Finished with a plank & 30 weak ass push-ups.

      Bari, I fell off the wagon with the push-ups. I bet I can't even do 5. I had some really great muscles going...all gone now. Nice ride!!

    Walked with the band during the parade (so maybe 1/2 a mile) then we got home just as it started raining, so no yard work. Went for a mile run instead. Was wearing my old mizuno elixirs and I felt ... read more

    good Saturday "long" run 5 mi 00:56 11:15 pace

    This run felt ok until about mile 3. Then I died. I hope my body figures out this low carb thing soon or I'm only going to be able to run 3 miles at a time. Even the first 3 wasn't grea... read more

      Congrats for getting it done on low fuel. Fat adaptation is very gradual. You might be miserable for a long time. Why not add a really tiny something on the run, like a small diabetic wafer. Even the Elite fat-adapted athletes add a little carb fuel when they need it. Tiny amounts, just a taste is often enough to avoid big blood sugar dips. Did you have anything prior to the run? Your post reminds me...I forgot to report the two marshmallows Danielle forced on me mid-run this morning.

      I actually ate something - a piece of broccoli & ham quiche because I woke up starving. Almost no carbs in that though.

      I've heard the low carb is super tough to get used to for runners. Nice 5!

      That would be tough. What about dates? Not sure where those fall carb-wise, but I love fueling with those.

    Just burning some calories before I start a day's worth of house cleaning and landscaping. Walk was ok. I thought I was walking at a good clip but I guess not.

    great North instead of South 2.9 mi 00:29 10:00 pace

    A bit disappointed that this route is short, especially after I came home and saw the clock said 29 minutes. Oh well. Did 1/2 mile WU and CD with roughly 2 miles of telephone pole fartleks. Fini... read more

    First the good news: the Newton Fate (today with my orthotic) is a great shoe - my feet felt good during the run and while my achilles bitched the whole time, it never got any worse. Now the not so... read more

      Don't expect the achilles to suddenly stop hurting. It is damaged. Changing shoes will not heal it. The extra drop may give it a chance to heal over time. That's what I'm hoping for when I switch shoes.

      I suggest staying in your newtons for the race. That's what you're used to. You don't want to work your muscles differently for a 25K.
