    Trying to clear my head & burn a couple calories. Didn't really succeed. At least the sun was out & it felt warm. Also, walking hurts just as much as running so I might as well run tom... read more

    #wycwyc - I still don't know if I'm running long tomorrow. Note to runner friends - don't drop a liter bottle of conditioner on your foot 2.5 weeks out from your goal race. Stupid ... read more

  3. FIT
    tired

    Had alarm set to get up early & bike but I fell back to sleep. Did 60 sec plank, 10 triceps push-ups, 10 crunches & 10 plank jacks. Better than nothing I supposed.

    It's Earth Day so that crack whore Mother Nature decided to produce legit snow and 20+ mph wind. Well played, you b*tch. Even the robins were squawking at me "WTF?!?"

      Cheers:

      You just ran a half marathon. You have snow and wind. Your achilles is screaming, which was also mentioned in your HM post. Running won't help weight loss much. Careful diet (versus dieting) and timing of food is key. Achilles is very serious. There's a reason it screams. My knees are whispering and I am listening. Walking is really cool. Try it for a while until Achilles is happy. Even though I'm healing from injuries, I am listening every step of the way. It really helps :)

      My trails are all paved, Bob. It's an old rail-trail that's been turned into a county park system.

    I've been literally and figuratively around the block long enough to know that not every run will be a good one. That being said, it still amazes me how a 14 mile run on Saturday morning can f... read more

      But you also stopped for cars! You can't take this as a realistic time. If you felt good and worked hard, that's what matters.

      You will love it. I haven't been able to go watchless while training, but I'll be done as soon as race day is over. I got so used to being watch free and really just loved running again.
