    good Apple Blossom Time 4.07 mi 00:52 12:46 pace

    First of all, the world smells really good right now thanks to all the apple blossoms.
    Second of all, I effed up this run but it was still a good one. It was a 2x2 run: Warm up for 10 minutes, keep... read more

  2. RUN
    good Big Leap 2.49 mi 00:31 12:21 pace

    Just looked at my pace time over the past two weeks of HRT and see that it's steadily dropping: 13:25, 12:38, 12:36 and now 12:21. I'm sure it won't be a steady decline like this thr... read more

  3. RUN
    good HRT Monday 3.57 mi 00:45 12:36 pace

    I was really looking forward to getting out for an HRT EE run. I had an easier time staying in the 133-140 range than in previous runs. Maybe I'm getting more comfortable with the shuffle?

      you ARE in the shuffle zone! If I work at modulating my pace as the HR gets closer to 140, I'm able to keep running longer. I only ended up with 5 walks in nearly 5 miles today. Last Monday I had 8 walks and 36 seconds per mile slower avg pace. GO YOU!!!

    Gorgeous morning - sunny and minimal humidity - but not yet hot. Ran 3 miles on my own, then on my way to meet Melissa I crossed paths with Chris, so we ran together to meet M, the three of us ran ... read more

    good 3.56 mi 00:45 12:38 pace

    133 bpm average. Felt good throughout the run - except when Phil B shouted from his bike that I was "really slow". F'you, Phil B.

    good Too Nice to Not Run 3.38 mi 00:45 13:25 pace

    I'd told myself I'd take a week off after the half, but this stretch of clear sunny days was calling to me. Plus I've been following all the chatter about HRT online and really want ... read more

      Nicely done! If you're going to run after a tough half, this is the way to do it!!!

    alright Maine Coast Half Marathon 13.18 mi 02:29 11:16 pace

    Strange feelings coming out of this race. I had a good time in the events surrounding the race - overnight with friends in a hotel the night before, hanging out with them in the lead up to the race... read more

    alright Here, There and Everywhere 11.18 mi 02:03 11:00 pace

    I just felt slow and tired throughout this run. I'm grateful that I was able to do most of this run with a group of friends (3 of whom are running in the same race as me next weekend, expect t... read more

  9. RUN
    good Fifteen Miler 15 mi 02:41 10:43 pace

    About the most perfect weather a runner could ask for. I ran the mile to Melissa's house, we ran 6.5 together, then I refilled my water bottles at her house and did another 7.5 on my own. I fe... read more

    good Get To The Point (And Back) 4.28 mi 00:47 11:00 pace

    First time using the HRM. Took a little while to get my watch hand strap to find one another, but once they did the readouts were steady throughout the run. Definitely strange to be getting a digit... read more

    good Good'n 14 mi 02:39 11:20 pace

    That felt good. No back pain, felt loose and strong throughout the run. I did the first 4 miles on my own, going very slowly (upcoming heart rate training is on my mind) - 12:30 was my target pace.... read more

    great Witch Hole Pond 3.2 mi 00:34 10:32 pace

    Great run! After work, met up with Misha and got to run in Acadia. And the weather was gorgeous: 67 degrees and sunny with a light breeze.

  13. RUN
    good Well That Was Weird 3.27 mi 00:44 13:35 pace

    Inspired by an interest in heart rate running and some lower back pain that won't go away, I did a super slow run today. I listened to a podcast to ensure that I didn't get swept away in ... read more

    good ADT Half Marathon 13.1 mi 02:25 11:03 pace

    Alison was running a half marathon out in Utah today and I had 13 miles on my training plan. Time to reach out across all those miles and run an "I'm there in spirit" half marathon w... read more

    good Quadrophenia 12 mi 02:08 10:42 pace

    This run had a rough start. My quads were screaming at me, the result of Thursday's bootcamp challenge: 75 squats with a 45# bar across my shoulders. Good workout but it left me hobbling. It t... read more

      Whoa Nelly! That's a great workout. The run AND the squats :)

      I always liked how being sore from something else always seems to be an overall benefit to my running.

      You are working those hills, which is awesomely wonderful!!!

    Tossed and turned last night, thinking about the situation with my parents. I need to go down and help them out and get some things in order and am trying to carve out a space for that. I am so gra... read more
