  1. RUN
    good Week 6, Run 4 3.78 mi 01:00 15:52 pace

    First time I've done an HR run on a TM. Not my favorite way to run for an hour but grateful to miss the heat and humidity of central PA. I kept the pace pretty easy even though it was a free r... read more

      I haven't done one on the TM since the 30 minute days at the beginning. I'm not sure how I'd feel about it right now, either. Glad you're in PA safely.

  2. RUN
    good Week 6, Run 3 3.27 mi 00:45 13:45 pace

    Another soupy, humid day. But I dialed into an EE run and then turned it up at the end with 6 accelerators. Good to get a run in before hitting the road for my trip to PA.

  3. RUN
    good Week 6, Run 2 2.13 mi 00:30 14:05 pace

    Oh, the humidity!!! Pea soup morning. Knowing that training picks up in intensity next week, I reveled in the short EE run, even in the humidity.

  4. RUN
    Week 6, Run 1 4.15 mi 01:00 14:27 pace

    I was very happy to toddle along at a very slow pace for the first couple of miles of this run. I gradually speeded up and felt ready for the accelerators when it was time.

  5. RUN
    alright Week 5, Run 4 5.27 mi 01:15 14:13 pace

    Ooo, my legs were tired today. Definitely felt yesterday's run. I did notice that I didn't get more tired as the run went on. Just felt a steady state of less than fresh legs but felt sol... read more

  6. RUN
    good Week 5, Run 3 4.81 mi 01:00 12:28 pace

    This run was all over the place - but that didn't bother me - I just got what I needed in the moment, pushing myself a little harder than EE but but not killing myself or beating myself up for... read more

  7. RUN
    good Week 5, Run 2 3.44 mi 00:45 13:05 pace

    One thing I like about accelerators: I switch over to music when I run them. I've been od'ing on podcasts because music tends to make me run too fast. I miss my tunes and love the chance ... read more

      what a good idea! I have a hard time hearing podcasts with the road noise around me. Need to catch up. Nice run, and glad you liked the accelerators!

    good Week 5, Run 1 4.46 mi 01:01 13:35 pace

    First time with accelerators!! The controlled speed felt great, as did the overall run.

  9. RUN
    good Week 4, Run 5 5.18 mi 01:15 14:28 pace

    Doing the long run on a Sunday because of yesterday's 5K free run. Started raining about 2 miles in and it felt like heaven after the fug of humidity. Never crossed 140, stayed mostly in the u... read more

  10. RUN
    great Wek 4, Run 4 3.6 mi 00:41 11:28 pace

    Switched up the week a bit, because I had signed up for a 5K with the boys. So I put my free run today. And it was definitely an "all over the place" kind of run. I warmed up with a frien... read more

  11. RUN
    good Week 4, Run 3 3.16 mi 00:45 14:14 pace

    Had to take more walk breaks today than in the previous few runs. HR just kept bumping into the low 140s. More people around because it's high season for all the summer residents. Without inte... read more

    A short slow run on a beautiful day. What's not to like?

  13. RUN
    good Week 4, Run 1 3.19 mi 00:45 14:06 pace

    Beautiful morning after all the fog and rain. Easy to just settle into a groove and run. Didn't go above 140 once.

    good Week 3, Run 5 5.27 mi 01:15 14:14 pace

    It's a long time to be going at a shuffle, but I listened to some entertaining podcasts and appreciated that I didn't feel like I was fighting against tired legs and lungs. There were a c... read more

      Nicely done! I found the long runs to be "works in progress" - but you WILL see gains in another three weeks. It's really amazing to watch it unfold, bit by bit. GO YOU!

    good Week 3, Run 3 3.3 mi 00:45 13:39 pace

    Felt mellow and easy throughout this run, never crossing the 140 mark and never needing to stop and walk. Maybe I'm getting too good at this slow thing and will never go fast again? Unlikely, ... read more

      Ha! Same thought crossed my mind today! But there's something to be said for not feeling beat up all the time. Nicely done!!!

    good Week 3, Run 2 2.16 mi 00:30 13:53 pace

    I thought this run would be a disaster because I didn't sleep well last night. But instead it felt "just right" and I didn't cross the 140 mark once.

      whoa! Nice run. I haven't let loose too much on the free runs and keep wondering if that's going to reach out and bite me...
