    Quickie! 1300 m 00:30 37:08 pace

    Alex was at a birthday party so decided to try a marathon pace run today and see how the leg felt the day after a tempo. Wow! My acupuncturist is a miracle worker. Hoping for good, continuing recov... read more

      The recovery is great news for Vernonia. I was a little banged up from Shamrock as well, but still hoping to do the Vernonia Half.

    Recovery 00:35

    I didn't bother to lap count or use my watch on this one. It was mainly just for recovery after last night's 20. Felt like I was sinking at first but the legs loosened up after the first ... read more

    It is done! 20 mi 02:52 08:34 pace

    tired Back to the trainer! 16 mi 01:00 16.0mph pace

    Since this doesn't hurt the back of my knee and hamstring, I opted to get in an hour of quality time with the bike trainer before my son woke up. It wasn't too horrible. I am hoping this ... read more

    Recovery miles before work 10 mi 01:28 08:48 pace
