    good Longish 12.01 mi 01:45 08:42 pace

    Seems weird calling 12 long, but that's what it was. Achilles was good, ankle still a little sore. By the end, my feet felt like they ran a marathon, still some kinks to work out in the next 1... read more

    good Hood 3.01 mi 00:24 08:03 pace

      Plus if you wear the Hokas you gain about three inches of height. ;) Hope the pain goes away.

  6. RUN
    good The 'bury 6.26 mi 00:50 07:56 pace

    After 2 PT sessions with ultrasound and steroids, the Achilles is getting better but it still needs work. It will probably be a couple months before full recovery, but my confidence is building tha... read more

  7. RUN
    great Unintentional Progressive 4.01 mi 00:30 07:30 pace

    Once my Achilles loosened up, my legs, for the first time since the marathon, felt like moving. I found myself in an unintentional progressive, and I embraced it. Splits: 8:00.3/7:39.1/7:23.6/6:58.7

  8. RUN
    alright G Town 6.01 mi 00:48 07:57 pace

  9. RUN
    good On the mend? 4.01 mi 00:32 07:55 pace

    PT starts tomorrow, the run seemed physically difficult, like I was drained, but the Achilles and ankle felt alright, a little tight for about 100 yards or so but it loosened up. I feel like I lost... read more

  10. RUN
    alright On the O again 12.01 mi 01:41 08:26 pace

    Nice run with Joe Toe on the O trail. Tolerable levels of soreness. I've got 4 weeks to turn this ship around.
    Splits: 8:36.1/8:37.6/8:29.6/8:22.2/8:26.4/8:31.6/8:19.0/8:25.8/8:19.6/8:16.6/8:2... read more

  11. RUN
    alright Into the wind! 6.01 mi 00:48 07:55 pace

    Tolerable levels of soreness. Oddly, none of it from the Achilles. Splits: 7:54.7/7:58.9/7:58.2/8:02.7/8:02.2/7:36.5

  12. RUN
    blah Gahanna 4.08 mi 00:33 07:58 pace

    Legs and feet felt like $h1t compared to yesterday. Splits: 7:49.1/7:54.3/8:08.9/8:03.7/0.08 @ 0:37.4

  13. RUN
    good ZTZ in the G 6.01 mi 00:47 07:48 pace

    Getting better, no pain in the Achilles, just occasional discomfort. My right foot was bothering me more, which I know is a result of the left Achilles monkeying up my stride. Splits: 7:39.1/7:44.6... read more

  14. RUN
    alright Bury 6.01 mi 00:47 07:49 pace

    Took 4 days to see how the Achilles would feel. It seems to have helped, but I may see a Doc anyway.

  15. RUN
    alright Gahanna 3.6 mi 00:29 08:04 pace

    Still taking it easy to recover, this Achilles is not happy. Splits: 8:00.0/7:59.2/8:10.3/0.60 @ 4:57.7 (8:15)

    alright Columbus Adventure 10.51 mi 01:31 08:38 pace

    Nice little 10 miler with Joe Toe and the elusive Rancidgoat who I haven't run with in awhile. We did some adventuring around Columbus to get to Audubon park, and by adventuring I mean we may ... read more

  17. RUN
    great The 'bury 6.01 mi 00:48 07:57 pace

    Felt good until the last 2 miles, then my left Achilles started acting up again. Ain't nobody got time for this, I got a marathon in 5 weeks. Splits: 7:56.7/8:01.3/7:58.7/7:52.5/7:56.2/8:01.2

  18. RUN
    good Almost Human 4.01 mi 00:32 08:05 pace

    Recovering properly from a marathon is just as mentally hard as some parts of the race. Especially if you are trying to recover for a race that is only a short time away. You want to get out and go... read more

      Recovery is every bit as important as the marathon itself. Good luck balancing it with training for the next one.

      Not running is the hard part of being a runner.
      That said, want to run Sunday? I'll be not running Run With Scissors and that'll have me bummed. Shoot me a FB message with the location.
