    good Syracuse Trail 4 mi 00:39 09:42 pace

    Last year this wouldn't have been such a huge accomplishment, but to run 4 miles in less than 40 minutes is huge for me right now. I would actually have liked to slow it down and go longer, as... read more

      To run 4 miles in less than 40 minutes is huge for 95% of the population! Nice job! Keep it up!

    I think I am getting sick, was really fighting lung congestion the whole way, this felt way harder than it should have for that pace!

    alright my living room 00:15:00

    Arms and abs tonight. Arms are so hard for me. My shoulders are so weak. I really need to try to strengthen them. Good workout tonight. Didn't do legs as I am running early in the morning.

      I'm finding out that a stronger upper body will help a lot to give you energy for long runs. I've started focusing a bit more on that area and it seems to be helping. Plus I feel better. Of course, core muscle strength is needed for any physical activity. That's the one area you can exercise every day.

      I too am hoping it pays off, I know how much I rely on my arm swing to pull me through when I am pushing through fatigue!

      Good work, Chris. You should get out and run the trails on the island. That will help get you in shape for the hills during Ragnar.

      Dave-I definitely plan to hit the Island soon (probably will give it a month or so to warm up a bit) and I also plan to hit Bonneville Shoreline, I discovered this fall and it is a great training trail for Ragnar :) Thanks!

      It was so good to see you and your family on Sunday; we miss you.
