  2. RUN
    good Treadmill 2 mi 00:25 12:30 pace

    Due to a goodbye party for a colleague, I arrived home at sunset. I had more work to do (which i just finished), so I jumped on the treadmill to get something in. Completed FB1 by CJ in order to ti... read more

  3. RUN
    good BP 5.44 mi 01:22 15:08 pace

    I quoted "When the world is running down, You make the best of what's still around" by Sting/The Police on my Charity Miles post tonight because it was what was going through my head... read more

  4. walk
    good Neighborhood 1.31 mi

    Got out of the office very late after getting there early, so did a short walk around the block at sunset to get something in and keep my legs loose for tomorrow as running will have to wait. I als... read more

    good Walk @ work 1 mi

    A nice walk on a beautiful day to another plaza to pick up my parking pass.

  6. VELO
    good Long Prairie Trail 14.18 mi 01:29 9.6mph pace

    Used my crosstrain day to hitch up the bikes and check out the Long Prairie Trail near Capron. Nice trail! Fiance and I only road to the half-way point and back (my legs were starting to hate me), ... read more

  7. RUN
    good Where didn't I run? I covered... 15.97 mi 04:20 16:17 pace

    When I ran Wednesday, I ran the 8 miles as a 9/1 run/walk - skipping every other programmed 4/1. It went so well that I decided to see how far I could carry that today. I thought I'd be able t... read more

  8. walk
    good Walk Chicago 3 mi

    Had a meeting downtown today, so I got to walk a portion of my old hood's daily walk. I used to walk that route every day between home and work when I lived and worked in the city. It was the ... read more

  9. RUN
    great BP 4.05 mi 00:53 12:59 pace

    Another awesome-feeling run tonight and a lovely evening. I had some pretty awesome split times (for me) given some of the uphill-against-the-wind running I had to do. Gave up a department get-toge... read more

  10. walk
    good Walk @ work 1 mi

    Beautiful, windy day! Glad meetings took be between plazas today. I don't get to get out as much during the day since moving plazas.

  11. RUN
    great BP, N & SF 8.2 mi 01:58 14:21 pace

    I quoted Ozzy on my Charity Miles post because that's how today's run felt. I did not want to stop! I likely could've knocked out my 16-mile long run for the week today had I had the... read more

  12. RUN
    good Treadmill 4 mi 00:52 12:52 pace

    Loved treadmill trotting in my new shoes! Even when a lightning strike tried to scare me right of the platform.

  13. walk
    good Botanic Garden walk 2.03 mi

    A nice, hot walk around the Botanic Gardens with fiance today was a great way to shake out the legs from yesterday's long run!

  14. RUN
    good BP, N and Treadmill 15.12 mi 03:57 15:40 pace

    OMG, this is the most mileage I've ever run. My 14 year mileage barrier is now broken! I had planned to run it in 3 5-mile loops with 2 stops, but right when I arrived at the light near our ho... read more

  15. RUN
    good BP&N 5.36 mi 01:25 15:54 pace

    "Running on -- empty" summed this run up pretty well. While - although unplanned - I ate lunch late, I forgot my gel at home, not realizing it until I arrived at the point at which I tend... read more

      Yikes! Forgetting the fuel is never a good feeling! Way to tough out what you could though!

      Thanks! Yeah, I was really aiming for 7 miles, but with the heat and no fuel, it was just not going to happen unless I fell over and didn't make it home. Haha!

  16. RUN
    good Treadmill 2.2 mi 00:25 11:21 pace

    I know I shouldn't do speedwork on a first marathon's build week, but I awoke this morning craving an intense workout. So I did a CJ workout on my treadmill - a short 25-minute one I have... read more

  17. walk
    good Walk @work 1 mi

    Beautiful day to need to plaza hop... At least before the downpours.

  18. RUN
    good BP and DGP 10.16 mi 02:35 15:13 pace

    Started early - hit the pavement at sunrise - and cranked through my 10 miles. This run felt good and made me glad I'd decided to skip/replace Thursday's run. I saw lots of wildlife on th... read more

  19. walk
    good Walk @ work 2 mi

    Plaza hopping by foot (not car like earlier this week). Beautiful day!

  20. RUN
    good BP & N 6.61 mi 01:41 15:15 pace

    Oops! Turned a street too early at one point on my planned route and robbed myself of .4 of a mile. I'm ok with that. I did have to hop three plazas at work today. so I'm sure I made up f... read more
