  1. RUN
    good Sweaty Betty 5 mi 00:59 11:45 pace

    A little warmer and a lot more humid than recent mornings. First 3 miles were in the low 12s but I got a little boost of energy in the last two miles and dropped into the low to mid 11s.

      This sounds like it was hard but good! That dang humidity. I don't know how you manage it.

    good Fuel for the Fire 8 mi 01:32 11:28 pace

    After yesterday's crap run, I was nervous to do today's 8 miler. Also, I was out late last night celebrating Finn's graduation so sleep was sparse. First 1.5 miles were slow and I fe... read more

    tired Big Day for FBB 6 mi 01:14 12:16 pace

    My get up and go has got up and went. After several great runs where I felt like I could run forever, this one was a drag. Not sure why but I'm glad it's done. Now to get on with the exci... read more

  4. RUN
    good Shortie 4 4 mi 00:46 11:25 pace

    It didn't take long to reach the point in training where a 4 mile run feels like a quick jog. I'm shifting this week around because we're away this weekend and it would be challengin... read more

    good Victory Lap 5 mi 00:55 11:01 pace

    good Loopin' the Lupine 6 mi 01:10 11:41 pace

    Super late night last night for the Imagine Dragons concert had me feeling hungover this morning at the start of the run. But near the 2 mile mark I found a mellow groove and stayed in it for the r... read more

    good Sixer 6 mi 01:11 11:48 pace

    First six mile run in at about 6 weeks. Felt good. Once again, I was creaky and slow for the first couple of miles and then I found I had a well of energy that allowed me to amp up my speed. My spl... read more

      This appears to me to be an excellent set of splits! WTG on the distance.

    alright Darn Squats 4 mi 00:47 11:41 pace

    Did tabata on Monday and was feeling it today. First mile was soooo slow but I was able to loosen up and pick up the pace as the run progressed.

  9. RUN
    good Marathon Training Begins 5.1 mi 01:00 11:49 pace

    I was riding high on Finn's team's state cup victory yesterday and the giddiness of starting a new training plan. Remind me of this feeling when I'm feeling ground down by life on th... read more

    alright I Miss the Chickens 3.75 mi 00:43 11:30 pace

    I felt like I was dragging during this run and I considered bailing after 2 miles and just getting a couple of miles of walking in instead. Pushed through but this was definitely not a 'wind b... read more

    good Boston Bound 3 mi 00:34 11:24 pace

    good Rumble in the Tumble 5 mi 01:00 11:55 pace

      I feel like we had some guidance on longer runs but the new portal took away all my documentation :(

      I took protein bars with me on long runs, and they magically worked. Do you have any you like?

    good Home Again 4.01 mi 00:46 11:21 pace

    After a very challenging visit with my Dad, I'm back home. Got off the plane, came home, unpacked and then went for a therapeutic run.

    tired Slowly but Surely 4 mi 00:49 12:17 pace

    I had planned to run 5 straight miles but I felt so gassed in the first mile that I almost called it, thinking I'd just walk a few miles instead. I gutted it out, slowing way down and taking a... read more

    good Cross to East 4 mi 00:47 11:50 pace
