  1. RUN
    good Mid-Week Five... 5.5 mi 00:48 08:43 pace

      Your easy for "hot and humid" is faster than mine for "perfect conditions" LOL! Nice!

  2. RUN
    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

  3. RUN
    good Six-Miler... 6.13 mi 00:49 08:04 pace

    I was only supposed to run five miles, but since I was alrerady up to 93.87 miles for the month, I decided to get that 6.13 and make an even 100 for the month. My plan was just to run this one how ... read more

    alright Lakefront Long Run.... 19.01 mi 02:47 08:48 pace

    I had to get my long run in today, instead of waiting for the weekend, because there's a chance I won't be able to do so. The weather was absolutely gorgeous today, and I'm glad I de... read more

  5. RUN
    good Back-to-back Niners.... 9 mi 01:08 07:35 pace

    Second day in a row of nine-mile runs. Not quite the pace I wanted, but a good, strong run nonetheless. I gotta work on getting more sleep....

  6. RUN
    good Hump Day Niner.... 9 mi 01:17 08:34 pace

    Just wanted to get the miles done. Legs felt kinda heavy....maybe it's because I did legs at the gym yesterday. Gonna have to do a lot of running in the next few days. Nice weather outside.

  7. RUN
    TM Run... 4 mi 00:34 08:32 pace

    Weather kinda crappy, combined with my gym workout afterwards leads to a short TM run...

    good Weights After Run... 00:45

    Followed up my run with some upper body work....

    good Leg Day... 00:45

    Start of Week 10, and the 2nd half of marathon training. No running---a cross-training day, so I hit the weights.

  10. RUN
    alright 2014 Chicago 10K 6.26 mi 00:47 07:28 pace

    My official race time---46:49, a couple minutes from a PR. It was a decent race, despite running on less than five hours of sleep. The body was just tired, and I simply ran a tired race, but at lea... read more

      I'd say the pace was more than just OK, D - especially running tired. You always give it your all. Great job, Mijo!

      It's hard to be "on" for as much as you race the Chicago summers Derek. Nice going on this one and sometimes you just run to run and pick which ones to really race. Definitely not slow in my book!

  11. RUN
    alright Four-Miler.... 4.01 mi 00:32 08:00 pace

    I did NOT feel like running today....just wasn't feeling it at all. My mind was on everything BUT running. But, I figured since I was out there, I might as well get it over with ASAP--got nega... read more

    good Wednesday Niner.... 9.01 mi 01:14 08:09 pace

    Nine stress-busting miles....DONE. I needed this run.

  13. RUN
    great Tuesday Tempo Run... 4.01 mi 00:33 08:08 pace

    A nice, short, strong run...negative splits (8:36, 8:18, 8:12, 7:33). Felt good.

    Total upper body with the weights for my cross-training....no running today.

    good Sunday LSD Run.... 17.5 mi 02:35 08:50 pace

    Today's run wasn't as bad as last weekend. It was still challenging, but I handled it better. I got an earlier start this time. The temps weren't too bad, but the humidity was a litt... read more

    great 8-Miler....Caliente! 8.01 mi 01:07 08:19 pace

    Another hot one (about 80 degrees, but low humidity)....but that's what happens when you START just after 12PM. It was the earliest I could go. Still, it wasn't all that bad. I stopped on... read more

    great Easy Friday Four... 4.1 mi 00:36 08:47 pace

    After Wednesday's & Thursday's harder efforts, I purposely kept this run nice and easy. I have to run 8 & 17 miles this Sat & Sun, so I don't wanna push it. The weather w... read more

    great Quick Neighborhood Loop... 4.01 mi 00:32 07:51 pace

    I didn't intend on running hard, but I felt so good after the first mile, I just went with it and pushed the pace. It was a warm 79 degrees (pretty low humidity, 54%), but I didn't care. ... read more
