    alright 4 mile Zone 2 4.04 mi 00:47 11:42 pace

    Wow, I'm getting even slower. My heart rate was all over the place today even though the weather was perfect and I felt great. At one point early in mile 3, my HR said 168 for no apparent reas... read more

    good Beautiful morning! 4.04 mi 00:46 11:23 pace

    Great running weather, and I'm trying not to get down about my slow pace. My old pace will come back to me eventually, right? At least nothing hurts.

    alright 5-mile Z2 5 mi 00:55 10:57 pace

    Beautiful morning for a run, but I'm getting tired of having to go so slowly to keep my heart rate in Zone 2. When will it get better? Feeling frustrated.

  4. RUN
    alright humid 4-miler 4.02 mi 00:45 11:06 pace

    Low energy + high humidity made this a tough one. I'm going to give in and call my doctor to see what she can do to help me sleep. Menopause is just mean.

    great 4-miler 4.01 mi 00:43 10:41 pace

    Ok, so I am thrilled with my pace today after running 11s and 12s for the past couple of weeks. My trainer asked for a 10-minute pace with my HR in Zone 2, and I laughed. But hey, I did pretty good... read more

  6. RUN
    great 6.01 mi 01:11 11:51 pace

    Had to go slowly to keep my heart rate in Zone 2, but otherwise a very nice run. My first long run since April 11! Had a bit of trouble at the beginning with a weird tightness in my back, but it lo... read more

  7. RUN
    good Aerobic run 3 mi 00:35 11:30 pace

    Steady Zone 2 for 3 miles. From my house, it's downhill in every direction, so I have uphills on the way home. I held a slow and steady pace until toward the end, and had to walk a bit on the ... read more

  10. RUN
    alright Loveland track 2.71 mi 00:33 12:06 pace

    My trainer suggested speedwork today but I didn't feel ready for it. So I gave it a try but may have psyched myself out. I was supposed to do two 1200s at 5K pace and then 2 x 800 at 5k-5secon... read more

  15. walk
    good 1.03 mi 00:20 18:55 pace

    Still recovering from surgery, so I can't run yet, but I wanted to see if I could walk a mile in 20 minutes. My pace was better than I expected and I decided to go for 19 minutes. I was cuttin... read more

    good Needed to get out there 3.03 mi 00:32 10:43 pace

      I have a tumor on one of my ovaries, so they are going to remove both of them. Medical menopause, here I come!

    Hatfield McCoy Half Marathon,... 13.1 mi 02:43 12:28 pace

    I ran the first half of the marathon (we had a choice of the first or second half) because it included a mile up Blackberry Mountain and a mile back down. Why run a half in WV if it doesn't in... read more

    My leg still hurts but I'm going to do the Hatfield-McCoy Half on Saturday anyway. Went out this morning and practiced walking fast to see what my pace would be, so I'll know what to expe... read more
