  1. RUN
    good Neighborhood and Parl 5 mi 01:24 16:48 pace

    An easy long run to start the weekend. My goal was to run what I could between 4 and 6 miles knowing my legs still feel taxed and I'm still negotiating with myself which races I might do next ... read more

  2. RUN
    alright Alpine Speed Work 4.61 mi 01:18 16:55 pace

    Oy! Where do I start with this one? First of all, it was a beautiful evening. There was enough wind to have the flag flowing, but it wasn't flying straight out like last week.

    Yesterday I di... read more

  3. FIT
    good Basic Yoga stretches 00:15:00

    I haven't done yoga in way too long. This felt good, even if short. Tomorrow I return to running.

  4. RUN
    good Chicagoland Spring Half Marathon 13.12 mi 03:23 15:26 pace

    I was hoping the official times would be posted by now for the Chicagoland Spring Half-Marathon, but they're not. My official time is likely slightly less than this as I didn't stop my wa... read more

  5. RUN
    good Neighborhood 1.75 mi 00:27 15:09 pace

    Just a slow, easy, don't-overdo-it early evening jog in between work and dinner to keep the legs primed a bit for Sunday's race.

  6. walk
    good Lake M 2 mi

    Had the day off, so took a leisurely walk by Lake M before dinner with bf. A bit chilly out there by the lake tonight!

  7. RUN
    good Alpine Speed Work 5.15 mi 01:29 17:18 pace

    I missed my marathon q&a to fit this speed work in. I wanted to get this week's plan done well ahead of my half marathon on Sunday. Coach had me run 5x3 min intervals with 3-min walk/jog r... read more

  8. walk
    good Neighborhood 3 mi

    Once the winds died down, and after dinner, bf and I took a walk around the neighborhood. It was a beautiful night -- especially with the lilac, viburnums and honeysuckle scents coming in!

  9. walk
    good Walk @ work 1 mi

    Too much walking in new heels! Ack! But they need to be broken in at some point. Haha!

  10. VELO
    good Neighborhood and park 5.84 mi 00:34 10.3mph pace

    Because I may throw in a 5k tomorrow, and I'm on taper for a half I want to do next week, I decided to throw in a shorter cross-train element today to keep my body moving and happy. I started ... read more

  11. walk
    good Neighborhood 1.5 mi

    Bf and I walked to the local Walgreen's and back. It was a beautiful evening we couldn't pass up.

  12. walk
    good Walk @ work 2 mi

    Catching up. Slower week in terms of meetings. Found out we might relocate in a few months to the plaza where I travel to most. That'll be a shame as it'll mean less walking at work.

  13. RUN
    good Alpine Speed Work 2.61 mi 00:28 10:46 pace

    Took the first speed work session of the season a little easy tonight so as not to injure my hamstrings which were feeling a little tight and sore. I definitely need to put yoga back into my workou... read more

  14. RUN
    good Long run 11.25 mi 03:11 16:59 pace

    Today, with all of the running I do, I had a first sighting of a SNAKE! It was hiding on the side of the path and just when I got next to it, it jumped and slithered away. Good thing because I, odd... read more

  15. walk
    good Walk @ work 1 mi

    More walking between plazas for meetings.

  16. walk
    alright Walk @ work 3 mi

    Used this cross campus meeting rushing between several campus buildings today as a shakeout after Sunday's 10-miler. Feeling some aching in my left calf. Will lay off the running tonight, do m... read more

  17. RUN
    great Long run 10 mi 02:34 15:21 pace

    This was a nice, easy long run just to enjoy the morning. There's nothing like running a few miles, listening to the frogs, birds and squirrels go about their business. Today, as far as birds ... read more

  18. RUN
    good Tempo Run 3.31 mi 00:44 13:09 pace

    A great tempo run on a beautiful evening using CJ's tempo workout. I haven't run a true tempo run since the summer. It felt good and I felt appropriately taxed after it was done.

  19. walk
    good Walk @ work 2 mi

    Meetings, meeting! Chilly day.

  20. RUN
    good Treadmill 3 mi 00:39 12:54 pace

    Trying to fit a few easy miles in between work and, well, more work. I didn't want to blow away in the winds outside either...so I took to the treadmill to get it done.
