  1. RUN
    alright FF Quarter Marathon 6.56 mi 00:53 08:06 pace

    This was a tough one. Don't know if I pushed too hard on the 5K or the humidity just kicked my ass. I think it was a combination. Around mile 5 I could feel my energy draining, so my mantra wa... read more

      I was thinking the exact same thing, except mine started at 4 miles. These temps were way different than years past and kicked my bootie! You did amazing though! Congrats on the 3rd place!

      Just you wait until we get a cool low humidity day... you'll be off like a shot. It's the humidity that does it.

      I felt it too, definitely a mental game the last 2.55 miles. Mile 4 was at hospital hill. What starts as a mostly flat to downhill course finishes with hill after hill after hill.

  2. RUN
    good FF Qtr Marathon: 5K 3.13 mi 00:23 07:13 pace

    Felt good. Negative splits. Didn't PR, but then again, it wasn't 54° like last year. I placed 4th in my age group. I'm happy with my performance.

      Going to do the Graveyard Dash or any of the other 5ks coming up? It'll be cooler for sure by then. PR time ahoy!

  3. RUN
    good NorthHood: 3miles@Tempo 6.34 mi 00:51 08:01 pace

    Not to bad. It was 12° hotter than last Thursday;had to take a break after the tempos, but all in all it was a good run.

  4. RUN
    alright SouthHood 6.46 mi 00:58 09:00 pace

    For about a month now it seems the Wednesdays seem to be the hottest and most humid days of the week for me. It was another heat and humidity beat down. I'm ready for the change of season.

  5. RUN
    good North/NortheastHoods: 6x1min ... 8.34 mi 01:08 08:12 pace

    No track night tonight; TU soccer game goin' on. I knew if I tried to do intervals by myself it would probably suck, so I though some hill repeats would be a good replacement. Felt good.

  6. RUN
    good THD/State Farm/Corp.Woods 8.21 mi 01:11 08:38 pace

    A relaxing Sunday morning run.

  7. RUN
    great FFKP - M1: LSD 16.06 mi 02:18 08:33 pace

    I was a bit cold, but felt great. My energy level stayed consistent throughout. Felt like I could have kept running once we finished. M1 stayed together for the whole run. Runs like this reminds me... read more

  8. RUN
    good NorthHood: 3miles@Tempo 6.28 mi 00:50 08:00 pace

    What great conditions for a tempo run. So nice to run fast without melting. Much better than yesterday.

  9. RUN
    alright SouthHood 6.42 mi 00:57 08:48 pace

    I think yesterday took it out of me. Not much energy today. Even though the front was passing through it was still humid. I was doing alright until the sun came back out. Had to take a couple of br... read more

  10. RUN
    good TU Track: Speed Work 2.93 mi 00:20 06:51 pace

    6x800m (3:24, 3:23, 3:18, 3:24, 3:17, 3:22). My group was only scheduled to run 5 intervals, but I did one more by myself to see if I could pace myself. Seems like I nailed it. Didn't look at ... read more

  11. RUN
    great THD/State Farm/Corp. Woods 8.15 mi 01:09 08:29 pace

    What a great morning for a run.

  12. RUN
    good FFBD - M1: Progression 12.3 mi 01:42 08:16 pace

    It was 6 miles at progression; 5 of those miles were well below my race pace (8:30). Felt pretty good though; HR wasn't too, crazy, high. The cool temp and the light rain was really nice.

  13. RUN
    good North/NortheastHood: 6x1min H... 7.28 mi 01:05 08:55 pace

    Redemption. Took the w/u and c/d slower than usual. Also took a break after the repeats, and 2 more during the c/d, but I didn't care. I got 'er done. It was still hot, but the lower humi... read more

  14. RUN
    tired SouthHood 4.8 mi 00:42 08:50 pace

    Total suckfest. Heat and humidity kicked my ass again. Had no energy today; took 3 breaks. It wasn't even worth it, so I cut it short.

  15. RUN
    good TU Track: Speed Work 2.47 mi 00:17 06:43 pace

    1600 (6:50), 2x800 (3:22, 3:21), 2x400 (1:34, 1:29). The cooler temp was very welcomed.
