  1. RUN
    good Friday Ten... 10 mi 01:25 08:32 pace

    Knowing I have a longer run on Sunday, I took this one easy until the last mile. Another beautiful day for a run, and I encountered more friendly people on this run than I can ever remember. Seems ... read more

  2. RUN
    good Hump Day Runnin' 7 mi 00:55 07:53 pace

    A beautiful day for a run....felt strong all the way through.

  3. RUN
    good Neighborhood Loop... 7 mi 00:58 08:20 pace

    Nice afternoon for a run....getting my week off to a nice start. Preparing for the 20-miler this coming Sunday.

  4. RUN
    good Sunday Long Run... 14.01 mi 02:02 08:42 pace

    Nice cool morning....not as many miles as I wanted this week, but Week 14 done.

  5. RUN
    blah Uninspired Run... 6.01 mi 00:51 08:26 pace

    Today....I simply was not feeling it. I didn't wanna run, but I did anyway, partly because I missed yesterday to attend the funeral of one of my cousins. My mind was on so many other things, I... read more

  6. RUN
    good Five At The Park.... 5.01 mi 00:39 07:45 pace

    I always feel tired, slow and have heavy legs on my first run after a long run--even after I take a day off. So, I made sure to push the pace after that first sluggish-feeling mile. It was a really... read more

  7. RUN
    alright Sunday Long Run... 20.01 mi 02:55 08:46 pace

    I didn't know how this would go after yesterday's eleven, so I made sure the 1st half of this run was nice and steady. Then the 2nd half would be whatever I felt I could do. Maybe I shoul... read more

  8. RUN
    good Run With Sarah... 11.01 mi 01:32 08:22 pace

    I was supposed to run ten miles on my own at marathon goal pace, but my allergies kicked my butt yesterday and had me feeling crappy. Also, Sarah wanted a running partner, so I just compromised and... read more

  9. RUN
    great TM Thursday... 5 mi 00:41 08:16 pace

    Had to run inside, because it was raining. Did a mile w/u, then 5X400 & 1X800 at slightly faster than my 5K pace (with a 400 recovery run in between each), then a mile c/d just to shake things ... read more

  10. RUN
    great Mid-Week Ten... 10 mi 01:25 08:31 pace

    A warm afternoon, but not too humid, so it wasn't bad. Got a mid-week double digit run in the training plan...trying to build up the miles steadily. Just found a nice pace, then pushed the las... read more

  11. RUN
    good Easy Five.... 5.01 mi 00:42 08:20 pace

    First run of the week & month. Still pretty hot and humid out, but I found a nice pace to stick with, then pushed a little harder the last mile.

  12. RUN
    good Early Morning Seven... 7.01 mi 00:53 07:37 pace

    It was a kinda cool, but quite humid morning. I was glad to get this run done early. Started with a mile warmup, then 6 miles at my goal pace. I wasn't quite hitting it, but overall, when I ta... read more

  13. RUN
    good Double-Digits Again... 10 mi 01:26 08:37 pace

    Followed up my eleven from yesterday with 10 miles today. It was a lot warmer and more humid than I thought it would be (about 84 degrees/66% humidity). I guess I was obviously feeling the effects ... read more

    good Make-Up Miles...? 11.01 mi 01:33 08:26 pace

    I hadn't run since Monday--I just didn't feel like it, felt fatigued. So today, I kinda tried to make up for it. Got a nice double-digit run in, it was great weather for it, too. I found ... read more

  15. RUN
    good Monday TM Run... 5.25 mi 00:45 08:35 pace

    Even though it was hot and humid, I was still considering ruuning outside.....until I saw the lightning. That decided my plans for me, the TM it was. Just wanted a nice, easy after yesterday's... read more

  16. FIT
    good Pushups, Abs & Weights... 00:40

    Did pushups and abs before my run, because I'm usually not in the mood to do abs afterwards. Then after the run, I did upper body (chest, back, shoulders and arms).

  17. RUN
    good Fort2Base 10NM Run... 11.25 mi 01:29 07:56 pace

    This was my first time running this race. It's 10 Nautical Miles (or 11.5 regular miles), beginning at Fort Sheridan, and ending at Naval Station Great Lakes. It was a good morning for a run, ... read more

    This was the MOST HUMID. RUN. EVER! I wasn't supposed to run this morning. Originally, I was going to do twenty yesterday, rest today, and my 11.5-mile race tomorrow morning. But a sore Achill... read more

    good Tuesday Ten... 10.01 mi 01:25 08:27 pace

    Definitely a warm one (82 degrees/62% humidity), but I managed to pull off a mid-afternoon 10-miler. It felt like my pace was slower than what it turned out to be. I was actually not trying to hit ... read more
