    good Week 10, Run 3 5.26 mi 01:00 11:24 pace

    Free run! It felt good to ramp up the pace for much of the run. When it started feeling like a burden instead of a challenge, I'd slow down. Fun to listen to music and push a little harder tha... read more

  2. RUN
    good Week 10, Run 2 2.47 mi 00:31 12:43 pace

    So much cooler and less muggy this morning. Kept a mellow pace until the last 1/4 mile, when Melissa caught up to me (not too hard to do!) and as we talked we got faster and faster. When I look at ... read more

    alright Week 10, Run 1 4.13 mi 01:00 14:31 pace

    Ooo, that ol' humidity was back with a vengeance. I managed to thread this run between two rounds of heavy rain - so the upside was that I didn't get caught in a downpour. But the downsid... read more

    Huh. After a week of runs that felt harder than usual, runs where I didn't feel like I was seeing any progress in the training, I had this gem of a run. Beautiful, less humid weather surely pl... read more

      SO SO glad you had a great run! Sounds like it was perfect in so many ways. This HRT has definitely knocked all my fueling habits on their ear. I have had the same appetite suppressant thing, but the long runs are bringing out the food beast in me. I KNOW that when the temps are down and the humidity modulates that you're going to be amazed.

  5. RUN
    good Week 9, Run 4 4.58 mi 01:05 14:11 pace

    A little less humidity made for an easier time maintaining an EE pace at the beginning of this run. In the last ten minutes I really struggled to keep my HR down and had to slow to a crawl to get i... read more

      is it possible that your monitor was blipping on you and picking up your cadence and not your HR? I've had that happen three times in the last week. Sudden spike to 160 even though I'm not even breathing hard. Each time I had to readjust the strap to get it to behave.

      I never even thought of that as a possibility. I'll check it next time this happens. Thanks for being my guru/troubleshooter.

    tired Week 9, Run 3 4.34 mi 01:00 13:50 pace

    This one was hard. Not because of the nature of the workout, but just because it was intensely humid and my body felt exhausted. I'd noticed that my legs were feeling really fatigued yesterday... read more

    Nice and mellow.

  8. RUN
    good Week 9, Run 1 4.26 mi 01:00 14:05 pace

    First run with my light-up vest since the spring. Super foggy and a 5 a.m. run time meant it was d.a.r.k. dark. Humidity had me sucking air but it still felt comfortable. PU's at the end of ev... read more

  9. RUN
    great Week 8, Run 5 8.05 mi 01:50 13:39 pace

    Longest run since starting the plan. I sure do love long runs and I've missed them - so I'm glad to have them back in the mix. Super humid morning but cooler temps made for decent running... read more

      Love that you loved this run! Hint - they get longer from here on out. But it is on these very runs that I see most of the improvements, so it helps me enjoy them even when the time grows loooong. Sorry it was so humid, though. Excellent work!

    The humidity is back.When I look back over the past few weeks of runs, I see a pattern of humidity = apx. +30 sec/mile on my pace time. Waves of storms coming through over the next few days so the ... read more

    good Week 8, Run 3 3.82 mi 00:45 11:46 pace

    It was only a couple of days ago that I realized that I biffed on last week's schedule. Starting last week, the free run moved to Wed and Fri became an EE run. Oh well.
    So this week is my fir... read more

  12. RUN
    good Week 8, Run 2 2.56 mi 00:34 13:16 pace

    Another beautiful morning with minimal humidity. It was in the upper 50s so when I first stepped out the door for the run I was actually just a wee bit chilly and it made me think of l/s tees.

  13. RUN
    good Week 8, Run 1 4.52 mi 01:00 13:16 pace

    Beautiful morning. I found a good groove and stayed in it, adding the accelerators at the end. If I could off blocks of 5 as I speed up and slow down I have an easier time of controlling my speed. ... read more

      good idea. I have a little trouble with accelerate/decelerate, too - it's more of a binary thing here. Glad you had a good run with great weather!

    good Week 7, Run 5 6.46 mi 01:30 13:56 pace

    Here I am at the end of another running week. This was the longest run to date. It feels pretty easy to go longer distances when the pace is so mellow. Ii think as long as the weather is decent and... read more

  15. RUN
    good Week 7, Run 4 5.1 mi 01:00 11:45 pace

    Free run! It's fun to go old school once a week and listen to tunes and push the pace a bit.

  16. RUN
    good Week 7, Run 3 3.4 mi 00:45 13:14 pace

    This one felt good throughout - effortless -- including the accelerators. Not sure if it's the drop in humidity but there seems to be a shift happening as my pace drops while my HR stays on th... read more

  17. RUN
    good Week 7, Run 2 2.22 mi 00:30 13:31 pace

    Drop in humidity = easier time keeping HR under 140.

  18. RUN
    good Week 7, Run 1 4.46 mi 01:00 13:27 pace

    I thought this run would stink - up late last night and in the car all day yesterday. But it felt really good to be outside and moving.

    Another TM run. A girl could get used to having a fan blow cool air on her face during a run.

    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.
