    Ran the trail at Portage Lake this morning with my friend Martha York. First time I've been there. Humid, mega-hills, nature all over, and I only tripped once on a tree root. Great run!

  9. RUN
    good Neighborhood 2.9 mi 00:30 10:11 pace

    Warmer out there than I expected today. Having fun with Garmin 10.

  10. RUN
    great 2.26 mi 00:24 10:30 pace

    After work fartleks and a few hills. A good way to end a long day!

  11. RUN
    good 3.24 mi 00:36 11:02 pace

    Trying out my new Garmin 10 Forerunner. Will get it synced soon. Never had this much data on a run. Welcoming myself to the world of running technology -- Wow!

  12. RUN
    great 6:50 AM: Mr. Ken's Neighborhood 1.7 mi 00:17 09:44 pace

    A smooch from my sweetie before she left for work, then a "shake the sleep off" run before my work day begins. Temps mid-40s and daylight began to peek through. Happy hump day!

  13. RUN
    good Brain Cleansing Time! 1.9 mi 00:18 09:22 pace

    Evening sprint to wash (sweat!) the day away. Beautiful Michigan evening.

    That was a really good one!

  15. LOOKING FOR FEEDBACK. 3 runs this week, a little over 6.5 miles total, concentrating on tempo and hills (which I'm very fond of). Was training for my first marathon (Oct. 13) then employee/wor... read more

      Sounds like you'll be more than ready for a ½ four weeks from now.

      On the one hand I would say that your current weekly mileage doesn't lend to a HM in 4 weeks. But, as you point out, you have done the distance before, and yes, if you can get a 12-miler in, you can sure run a Half. So I would say, yes, do it. Only thing to add is be careful with focusing too much on the tempo and hills. A little really does go a long way. 1, maybe 2 sessions a week is plenty--getting in some good base, aerobic miles around that (assuming you have the time) is key. Good luck Ken

      I think just take the 12 mile run really slow and listen to your body... you know your body the best. But if you can do the 12, you can easily do a 13.... even if you can do a 10...

    My first run in 2 weeks. Some work priorities immediately after vacation pushed me off my training square. It became obvious I wouldn't be able to do my marathon training plan justice for 10... read more
