  1. RUN
    great 2.3 mi 00:31 13:32 pace

    C25K W5D3. Guys, I can run for 20 minutes straight. when did that happen? Its supposed to rain all weekend, so i was both ecstatic and disappointed that it was clear out for my run today. I'm ... read more

  2. RUN
    great 2.3 mi 00:32 13:51 pace

    Holy shit, I can run for 12 minutes straight. What?! Loved everything about this run Okay, not minutes 9 thru 11. But the rest of it. Legs feel good, arms are cold, face is sweaty, YAY!

  3. RUN
    good 3.11 mi 00:44 14:01 pace

    C25K W5D1. Felt the work a lot more today, which isn't necessarily bad, but man, those five minute intervals feel like my limit right now. Oddly, although I am more sore and spent, I also feel... read more

  4. RUN
    great 2.04 mi 00:28 13:58 pace

    Saturday run at Manfriend's! Easy run, think I'll take the dog with me next time.

  5. RUN
    good 2.18 mi 00:30 13:34 pace

    Much better. Not easy, but easier. Fewer miles, since I have to get the kid off to school and myself off to work, but I feel better with 2 miles under my belt. No pain, and the longer intervals wer... read more

  6. RUN
    alright 3.36 mi 00:46 13:49 pace

    The verdict is in: Morning runs are the business, afternoon runs are a slog. Plus side, no issues with the calves this run. And my elbows were sweating. Not my face, my elbows. WTF, body?

  7. RUN
    alright 4.05 mi 00:58 14:17 pace

    Nice. Morning went off the rails and I had to call out from work, but it meant I had time for a longer run! Right calf wasn't as tight (thanks for the tips, Aleta!), but the midday heat got to... read more

      Glad to help. I went through 2 years of suffering before I finally learned to stretch it out several times a day.

  8. RUN
    alright 3.29 mi 00:48 14:28 pace

    That tight right calf is back with a vengeance! Damn! I suspect that, being my dominant leg, I'm putting more strain on the right calf on footfall than the left. Feels like my stride is lopsid... read more

      My left calf is all jinky too. I have to stretch it several times a day even on rest days. I've found that stretching it and lifting weights (lunges, calf raises, etc.) help balance some of the unevenness.

      I'm sure that's part of it. I'm not stretching enough. And I'm so intimidated by lifting! Gotta start doing more of that kind of thing.

      Drop heel stretch and against the wall. It's changed my life.

  9. RUN
    alright 2.2 mi 00:30 13:49 pace

    Good run after all the birthday food and booze last night. Pretty cool morning for SoCal; my hands are cold!

  10. RUN
    alright 3.2 mi 00:45 14:03 pace

    C25K week 3 day 1! FUCK. The first two 3 minute intervals were MURDER. But that was exactly what I needed. Good run, warmer than its been recently, and I could feel my ass the whole second half of ... read more

  11. RUN
    good 2.22 mi 00:30 13:40 pace

    So many good jobs and good mornings from the Saturday runners! made me smile, and push harder. Really good run. Already looking forward to Tuesday!

  12. RUN
    good 2.03 mi 00:29 14:03 pace

    Again, I wish I'd had more time to spare. I could have pushed that third mile out if I'd had another fifteen minutes. I woke up early enough, but that getting out of bed lag killed me. Fe... read more

  13. RUN
    good 2.29 mi 00:33 14:25 pace

    I thought this run was going to suck. The first two intervals were a mental struggle, and then my wicked right calf started aching. But then it went away! I wanted to, I could have, gone for 45, bu... read more

  14. RUN
    alright 2.17 mi 00:31 14:20 pace

    Blah. New route sucks. But I did it, and I'm better for that, at least.

  15. RUN
    good 2.18 mi 00:31 14:12 pace

    Went out with my sister and soon to be brother in law at the ass crack of morning for the third run of the week. Felt good. Keeping pace with them for a bit was weird, but a good run! Feel great an... read more

  16. RUN
    good 2.09 mi 00:30 14:23 pace

    I am not a morning person. But I don't regret getting up at the ass crack of morning for this one. More burning jiggle than last run and I started off tighter despite stretching more (I blame ... read more

  17. RUN
    good NeighborhoodPark Loop 2.12 mi 00:31 14:37 pace

    Missed that! Tried not to push too hard, loved that burning jiggle in my ass fat. I missed you, Edna!

  18. RUN
    good 2 mi 00:27 13:39 pace

    C25k Week 1 Redux completed! And it didn't kill me. Much cooler this weekend, actually whipped out my old AC/DC thermal to beat the chill, because I'm a spoiled SoCal baby. Run felt good,... read more

  19. RUN
    1.31 mi 00:18 13:44 pace

    I actually did about 22 minutes, but the Garmin crapped out early. Its okay, I needed a short run so I don't end up late to work. It was a good one, I was totally bummed when I realized Edna h... read more

  20. RUN
    2.03 mi 00:29 14:18 pace

    Easier than I feared, harder than I'd hoped. But C25K week 1 day 1 redux completed. All of the squirrels in the world were out today!
