    first run in houston since the move! med school's killing my schedule, but there's a gym in my apartment complex and a pool at the school gym so I've been getting some workouts in.

  3. RUN
    intervals at Klein 2.5 mi 00:18 07:10 pace

    Definitely some of the fastest running I've done in awhile. 400's weren't feeling quite right and weren't easy to mark out so I started doing lengths of the field I was on (came... read more

      Oh in other news I've also found a 5k. The Bearkat Bash at my old high school is this 9/10 or 9/11. If I hit my time I'm looking for I'd be a top 60 finisher. Jeeze, even fun runs have so many good runners in them!

    good just getting out there. 3.57 mi 00:35 09:47 pace

    I didn't think to look at what was on the training schedule for today, I just wanted to get out there and get some miles under my feet.

    After starting my 5k program over again yesterday, I'm already wondering if it isn't time to start over all over again. My last interval workout went very well, but this one left me gasse... read more

      Just keep at it. Everybody goes through a readjustment after a layoff. I agree that 1:45 is probably about right for now.

      These look pretty good. Once you get them down to about race pace then you can start cutting the rest intervals. ;-)

      I hope you find Houston to your liking. It will still be hot and humid though.

      Thanks. Looking back on my repeats, they aren't my fastest (7:27, so close) but they are consistently fast. Id be very happy to get a 23 minute 5k as my first race but I think in 6 weeks (when I might run a community 5k near houston) there's a lot of room for improvement.

      So ill be very happy with 23 but am shooting for sub 22:30 best case

      22:30 is within reach. Try plugging in 22:30 in the McMillan pace calculator:
      http://www.mcmillanrunning.com/cgi-bin/calc.pl

      You'll see that he suggests running mile cruise intervals between 7:27 and 7:37. I think you get down there with a little more conditioning. As you said, 6 weeks is a lot of time, and you're almost certainly in 23:00 shape already (note what the calculator says about 23:00.)

    good short run got rained out 2.57 mi 00:24 09:16 pace

    It was supposed to be an easy 3 but got rained out. Since I have my super-smart-phone on me, I'm still sitting under a canopy waiting for a break in the weather.

    Anyone have any good jokes?

  11. RUN
    good 1.56 mi 00:09:55 06:21 pace

    I was going to do 5 x 400 meters, but I couldn't get on the outdoor track, so instead I did 5 x 3 laps (~537 meters). My goal was to beat my 5k goal pace in each interval, so faster than 2:30 ... read more

      What were the rest intervals? How hard did the 2:14 feel?

      I was definitely doing them too hard. I only got 2 of 3 laps on the last interval. My goal is faster than 7:30 pace for the 5k (22:30).

      Something that bothers me is that there isn't any cross training or weights build into this program. I'm thinking that at least one rest day will be a swim for me and I'll continue doing weights ~3 x per week. Think that sounds like too much?

      Hmmm. Cross-training is usually a good thing, particularly if you're worried about getting injured. Maybe you might want to look at the FIRST program and make some adjustments to your plan. The FIRST program explicitly includes two days a week of cross-training and even has guidelines about how to do it so that it helps your running. There's a cheap book you can buy at Amazon with all the details:

    jogging before and after intervals

  13. RUN
    good 4.5 miles, gym, then two sing... 6.45 mi 00:55 08:30 pace

    4.45 miles out in the heat in just under 40 minutes, then two singles during my weight workout (upper body + shoulder and wrist rehab) with some foam rolling at the end. Repeats were 7:50 and 8:18

  14. RUN
    good mile repeats 2 mi 00:15:00 07:30 pace

    7:23 and 7:37. I was going to go for a slow jog after, but it was raining

  15. RUN
    good before the gym 3.41 mi 00:30 08:41 pace

    7:45, 8:10, 8:50 splits. Didn't negative split it, but I'm psyched that they were all under 9. That half week off was a good call!

      You are getting faster. Cool! With more miles under you, the third mile will start to look more like the first two. Just don't overdo it.

    Not my best mile ever, but it was nice to run it inside on the track in the AC. Very negative split also!
