    good Lighten Up 7.25 mi 01:25 11:42 pace

    Didn't want to go quite as far this week as previous weeks. I've been steadily adding mileage each week to my long run. My knee has been tetchy over the past 10 days, including pain in th... read more

      Good call on stepping back a hair. Sounds like it was pretty glorious!

    tired Hello Hill-oh 4.03 mi 00:48 11:54 pace

    I smoked me some hills today. Non-hill pace was a crawl but on the hills I cranked it up and saw some low 9s and high 8s for pace. Did 5 uphills runs this time.

      Hahaha my initial mental image was of you grabbing some papers and rolling up a piece of hill and lighting up... clearly I need sleep ;)

      Good for you for taking the Hill-smoking challenge!

    good Frosty Nine 9 mi 01:51 12:21 pace

    My body was fine going long today as long as it also didn't have to go fast. I listened and settled in for a mellow long run. Chilly - took several miles to stop wishing I'd worn a vest a... read more

      Chilly stuff. Good stuff. Way to listen to your body. With your speed work, the long run paces are not as big of a deal (says she who desperately needs to start speed work again).

    good Speed Check 3 mi 00:29 09:49 pace

    Good morning, speed! I am really enjoying these bi-weekly speed workouts. I love how short they are and I'm excited to see progress. I don't think I'll get much faster so I will star... read more

    Mellow morning run. Trying to make sure I look up frequently to take it the beautiful fall colors.

      Jealous of your colors. We pretty much get yellow and brown here. Glad you're able to maintain that perspective.

    good It's a Habit 4 mi 00:49 12:17 pace

    I was toying with skipping this morning's run. Everyone else is away at a soccer tournament, I had a late night of socializing, and I'm not training for anything. What would skipping one ... read more

    good Nine! 9 mi 01:46 11:48 pace

    A little rusty at the beginning thanks to lots of squats in bootcamp this week. But once I got going I felt good and would have happily gone another mile or two. Makes me wish I had a half on the b... read more

    good Hills: 4 4.25 mi 00:50 11:43 pace

    It's Wednesday so that means speed or hills. Today was hills. I did 4 rounds, going fast up the first three and doing more like a crawl on the last one (I was tired). Hard but good.

      Yay for hard but good. And good for you for doing hill repeats. I tend to go up and bone and never up again. Maybe I will follow your lead once I figure out my hip thing...

    good Headlight 4 mi 00:49 12:13 pace

    First run with a headlamp this fall. I was definitely moving slowly today. Back to back runs, maybe?

    good Happy Brrrr 4 mi 00:45 11:11 pace

    This run just felt good. 34 degrees but the sun was out. I added gloves, hat and arm warmers to my outfit after a quick trip outside to check the temps. The weather had me feeling giddy and I went ... read more

    good Chilling Out 8 mi 01:34 11:41 pace

    Much cooler (low 40s) this morning. Felt good to be a little shivery at the start of the run. Was working out some work stuff in my head for much of the run so this long run felt like it was over i... read more

    good 4.21 mi 00:53 12:38 pace

    Warmth and humidity are back. I don't mind - soaking up the heat because I know what's coming. Took it nice and slow.

      Warmth and humidity?! Crazy. We have had November weather here for a week and it's decimated my garden - but been great for runs. I envision you "stockpiling" outdoor runs to last all winter!

    good Sunday, Sunday 5 mi 01:00 12:00 pace

    Thought I'd go 4 miles, but once I got going I just wanted a little more so I added a spur up and back on Carter's Beach Road. A fine way to start the day.

    good Eight! 8 mi 01:36 12:03 pace

    Beautiful morning - low humidity and cool (but not cold) temps. I felt strong throughout this run. Probably could have pushed my pace, but didn't want to run out of gas in the late miles. New ... read more

    good De-Creaking 7 mi 01:26 12:14 pace

    Boot camp started this week. And boot camp means squats. And squats mean creaky legs. So the first few miles of this run were sloooow. Eventually I shook the dust off and got a tiny bit faster (12:... read more
