  1. RUN
    alright Cadence drill 2.35 mi 00:37 15:44 pace

    High cadence, low HR, no fun. I'm really tired today from staying up to watch UK beat Missouri. Twenty wins in a row, baby!

  2. RUN
    great Loveland Track Diagonals 4.24 mi 00:50 11:47 pace

    This was so miserable while I was doing it, but now that it's over, I feel kind of exhilarated. Diagonal sprints across the football field in the dark, in the rain, with a cold wind. Is this w... read more

  3. RUN
    alright Form drills 2.45 mi 00:40 16:19 pace

    I hate the mornings when I piddle around and don't get outside until 6:30. Every other driveway has a car backing out, and most of them are high school kids who are half asleep and didn't... read more

  4. RUN
    alright Treadmill Speed Work 5 mi 00:55 11:00 pace

    Group speed work tonight is canceled, and I didn't want to face the 11-degree wind chill by myself, so I asked my trainer for a treadmill workout instead. It was so hard! He told me to "r... read more

  5. RUN
    good Hills 5.25 mi 01:01 11:37 pace

    I was a little worried that the roads would be slick, but once I was out of my cul-de-sac, they were mostly just wet. I had to slow down a few times where it was slushy, and I almost got hit by a s... read more

      nice job, then. It was a little slick on the sidewalks for sure. Roads seemed dry here.

      I think I'll do speework on the TM tomorrow, but the hills just sounded like more fun outside.

  6. RUN
    great Loveland Nature Preserve 2.2 mi 00:34 15:27 pace

    Inspired by my conversation with Madison A. yesterday, I took my recovery run/walk to the Loveland Nature Preserve today. It was a little muddy from the rain, but there's something about being... read more

  7. RUN
    great Mojo long run 10.2 mi 01:44 10:13 pace

    Sunny day, friendly group, great run! I fell behind the group around mile 5 because I was doing on and offs instead of a steady pace.
    On: 9:30-9:45 mile pace
    Off: walk 30 sec followed by recover at... read more

  8. RUN
    alright Cadence drill 2.75 mi 00:50 18:10 pace

    Up and down a hill with high cadence and low heart rate. My least favorite workout.

  9. RUN
    great Tempo run 4.5 mi 00:45 10:00 pace

    10-minute warmup with HR in Zone 2, then 30 minutes in Zone 3. Woo hoo! This training schedule has made me realize that I enjoy running fast more than I like the long, slow distance runs. I spent m... read more

  10. RUN
    great Around the block recovery run... 2.14 mi 00:31 14:29 pace

    Recovery run/walk after speed work last night. My trainer calls this "sharpening the saw." Also, I discovered that running in my neighborhood between 7 and 7:30 am is scary. School buses... read more

  11. RUN
    great Mojo speed work 4.5 mi 01:00 13:20 pace

    Great weather, great group! 1 mile warm up, then 4 x 800. My splits were 3:43, 3:49, 3:44, and 3:47. I am pleased.

  12. RUN
    blah Grumble grumble 4.6 mi 01:00 13:02 pace

    Heart rate workouts leave me grumpy. I just want to run! But I need to trust the training.
    20 min Z1
    3 x 10 min (Top of Z1, Top of Z2, middle of Z3) with 3 min walking between

  13. RUN
    great Loveland Bike Trail 8.02 mi 01:23 10:17 pace

    Pleasant, uneventful slow long run on the bike trail with a negative split. Just after I turned around, a guy coming the other way yelled "Nice job!" and high-fived me. That made me smile... read more

  14. RUN
    alright Cadence drill 1.66 mi 00:32 19:16 pace

    Cadence around 90 spm, heart rate in Zone 1 (under 145). Not my favorite workout.

  15. RUN
    great Strides 2.85 mi 00:40 14:02 pace

    Strides are always fun. This was 12 x 30 seconds with 2 min recovery (walk/drill/walk). The road I chose is normally empty in the morning, but I went out a little later than usual and there was a ... read more

  16. RUN
    great all around in the dark 5.92 mi 01:00 10:08 pace

    Nice run with heart rate in Zone 3 for 45 minutes. I absolutely love that my new watch has a backlight that stays on! So nice not fumbling for the light button with gloves on. But the pain in the ... read more

  17. RUN
    good Drills 2.66 mi 00:40 15:02 pace

    15 min Z1
    15 min drill work (butt kicks, ankling, ankle springs, heel walking, high knees
    10 min Z1

  18. RUN
    good Recovery walk 1.16 mi 00:28 24:08 pace

    Since yesterday was supposed to be a race, my trainer had a 20-minute walk on the schedule today. So I had a nice amble with my 15-year-old dog.

  19. RUN
    great 10K with Sue 6.32 mi 01:03 09:55 pace

    This was supposed to be a virtual 10K race, but because my foot has been hurting I had decided to just do 5K. Then my friend said she was running 10 miles today and I decided to tag along. We kept ... read more

  20. RUN
    alright Cadence drill 1.99 mi 00:35 17:25 pace

    Started out with a twinge behind my right knee and ended with a sharp shooting pain in the arch of my left foot. These easy weeks are the worst!
    This was up and down a hill at a cadence of 95 spm.
