    alright Trail Mix 4 mi 00:48 12:06 pace

    Still sporting a 5 inch scar on my calf from my May attempt to run a local trail, I gave it another go this morning. It's much better marked now, so no tangles with brush deep in the woods. ... read more

      Pretty view I bet! Nearly forgot about your war wound. You are brave to try again. Do you think you will incorporate more trail runs?

      @Alison T. I think if I can get trail runs in that require little effort on my part (like driving more than a few minutes or needing special gear) then I'll do more. I feel like I need to do something to change up my routine because I am feeling pretty unmotivated these days.

    good Blue Hill Memorial Hospital 5K 3.13 mi 00:31 09:44 pace

    Thanks to a nudge from Melissa, I opted to do a 5K race today. I haven't done a 5K in forever (at least 15 years) and man oh man, are they over quickly. I feel like I barely had time to regi... read more

    tired Fake It 'Til You Make It 3.75 mi 00:40 10:41 pace

    Had a hard time getting out of bed for this run but told myself I could just go one mile and then walk if I was still feeling like lead. Managed to go nearly 4 miles, but the whole run felt stiff ... read more

      weather can suck the good right out of a run - especially hot and humid. Well done taking it one chunk at a time!

    alright Four in a Funk 4 mi 00:43 10:46 pace

    I went to bed in a foul mood last night, hoping that a night of sleep would improve things. I felt a little better this morning but the run did a good job of moving the dial a little closer to &qu... read more

      Ugh, sorry to hear you've had "funk" in your life. Glad that running can at least take the edge off. You're probably working too hard.

  5. RUN
    good Happy Birthday, ADT! 9.26 mi 01:45 11:20 pace

    I made myself run slowly for the first 3 miles of this run, holding an 11:30 - 12:00/mile pace. It felt crazy slow and I would catch myself speeding up and force a slower pace. It left me feeling... read more

    good Foxy 4 mi 00:42 10:26 pace

    There are two fox kits living in a burrow along the route of my regular weekday run. I've seen them out and about later in the day, but this was my first morning sighting. So flipping cute.

    Um. . . is there an emoticon that represents me scratching my head and trying to remember some detail about this run? I did this run yesterday and honestly can't remember anything about it. ... read more

    tired Gonna Make You Sweat 8 mi 01:29 11:09 pace

    Felt good for the first 6 miles but I struggled in the last two. I'd brought 32 oz of fluid with me: 16 of nuun and 16 of water. I went through it quickly and was nearly out by the start of ... read more

      Ugh I hate running out of water on a run! I asked a lady to let me fill up from her hose on Saturday cause I had the same issue. It makes such a huge difference. At least the first 6 were good.

    good Before the Drive 4 mi 00:43 10:38 pace

    Leaving for CT this morning and figured a short run was a good antidote to sitting in the car for 6 hours. Beautiful morning - humid but not hot.

  13. RUN
    good Monday, Monday 4 mi 00:42 10:26 pace

    Did Slow/Fast miles this morning. The one mile splits were 10:27/10:01/11:10/10:10.

    I'm doing my best to stay positive when I have slow runs. I look at my watch and say "It's fat burning time!" when I see those 11+min/miles.

      hahaha yeah. I want to watch the fat melt off my butt in the heat while I run! The heat and humidity just sucks it right out of you, doesn't it?!

      I'm pretty sure I know exactly where you were because I have done the same damn thing there. I've complained to the powers that be (the one that I live with, anyway :-) about how poorly the top end of that trail is marked! The non-trail looks like a trail, is straight ahead, and has flagging, while the real trail takes a steep jog to the left without a clear blaze to mark it!
