    good Four & a Quarter 4.25 mi 00:52 12:07 pace

    Got this one in on the early side, since there's a lot to do today before boarding the bus for DC. Decided to hold a tempo effort for the entire run instead of doing intervals. Kept an eye on ... read more

      Good question. I think it would be hard unless you work on "good carb" ing up? Either way, you are doing great things. Xo

    Mellow warm up, 2nd mile at speed (10:07), used the third for recovery (very slow: 14:07) and then was planning to hit speed again on the 4th. The effort was there but the speed was not. That final... read more

      I had no idea!!! If I thought it would help, I would try contacts for running again but my problem is opposite yours. I'm trying to find a watch face app that Will allow me to see the numbers in my Garmin more clearly. I am glad the vision part went well; the rest of the run sounded great, too.

      Great idea to do a short and slow with the spin class on your horizon. Definitely a habit creation situation, getting back in the swing of morning runs (or regular runs at all).

      Oh I understand! When I am getting back on the speed bus, my fave workout is a mile warmup, then 10 sets of 1 minute hard, one minute barely moving and a mile cool down.

      Probably not what you want to hear, but maybe you need to leave the devices at home for a while. I've been doing this for a couple months, and I'm a much happier runner for it. It's good to track pace and all of that when you're in a training cycle and trying to hit a particular goal. But it's also good to take a break once in a while and just -run-
