    TCS New York City Marathon 26.2 mi 04:59 11:25 pace

    With sore quads and the usual creakiness that accompanies the third day of a marathon recovery, I will attempt to reflect upon our adventure in NYC. I have purposely not read Wes’ entry (if he has ... read more

      Thanks Fiona! Just checked into our airbnb in Midtown Manhattan. Forecast for the race is mild temps and scattered showers. It's gonna be an adventure for sure.

  3. RUN
    Y inside track 3 mi 00:28 09:21 pace

    Pulled in from Ohio and made it to the Y an hour before closing to get this short interval run on the books.

  4. RUN
    Y Outside .6 mile track 9 mi 01:35 10:30 pace

    Had option of 8-10 miles for this run, so I split the difference. Only smallish runs left until the big day in NYC. I'm jonesin' for the starting gun and looking forward to another advent... read more

  5. RUN
    Y outside .6 mile track 6 mi 01:05 10:50 pace

    Nice and easy, steady as she goes. With a biting wind in the upper 40s, this was the first cold run of the fall season.

  6. RUN
    Y outside .6 mile track 5.5 mi 00:50 09:09 pace

    Despite wind, rain, and cold I managed to turn in the best average pace at this distance in quite some time. It was an interval run (5 X 1K, 400m RI) and I opened it up on the 1K laps. Feeling stro... read more

  7. RUN
    Dandy Don Pre NYC Half Marathon 13.1 mi 02:19 10:36 pace

    13.1 @ PMP Final long run before the Big Apple. Felt good for most part, though both heels are very unhappy with me right now. It's a good thing we are tapering now. Now off to Ohio...

      Nice, Dandy Don. Nurse the barking heels and slide into the final two weeks.

  8. RUN
    Y outside .6 mile track 5 mi 00:52 10:29 pace

    Pedestrian mid tempo run. A little sore from cross training and the speedy outing on Monday. Looking forward to the half marathon on Friday and ramping it down on the road to the Big Apple.

  9. RUN
    Y outside .6 mile track 6 mi 00:55 09:08 pace

    Interval run (8 X 1/2 mile, 1:30 RI) I felt really strong on this outing, running many of the half mile sections at a sub 8:00 pace. I slowed down a bit after my right achilles started barking, but... read more

  10. RUN
    Y outside .6 mile track 20 mi 03:44 11:11 pace

    Perfect day for a long run, overcast and 59 degrees at the start. I was worried about breaking in the new shoes on such a long outing, but my other pair was so broken down and worn out that I had t... read more

  13. RUN
    Y outside .6 mile track 10 mi 01:46 10:34 pace

    10 miles at PMP. I'm shooting for a 10:40 pace at NYC which would put me over the line at 4:40. Gorgeous day, albeit warm. Incredibly blue sky with a hint of fired tobacco in the air...

  14. RUN
    Y outside .6 mile track 5 mi 00:49 09:46 pace

    Short interval run, 1 mile w/400 RI X 3.

  15. RUN
    Y outside .6 mile track 18 mi 03:24 11:18 pace

    Despite the beautiful weather, this was the most difficult run I've had in quite awhile. As a great man once said, "sometimes you just get blew out." I was not having much fun from m... read more

    I pushed the pace on this interval run despite the high mid day temps. Like Wes' run, the humidity was not horrible and I generally felt great on this outing. Felt like I could have pushed it ... read more

    Didn't have time to go the planned 12 miles, but got 2/3s the way there. That's okay, good mileage for me this week with an 18 miler coming up soon. Looks like we may get some cooler temp... read more

    Y outside .6 mile track 10 mi 01:46 10:37 pace

    I wish I had gotten out early like Les. This was a PMP 10 miler and I started in the low 80s and full sunshine. I'm feeling it right now.

  19. RUN
    Y outside .6 mile track 6.5 mi 01:04 09:50 pace

    The price for sleeping in this morning (Fergus had no school) was running in the lower to middle 80s with high humidity. Intervals, too! Seriously overheated after this one.

  20. RUN
    Old New Cut to Greenbrier 16 mi 03:00 11:13 pace

    Black clouds of mosquitos at my Y running track forced me to revisit the old training route of Springfield to Greenbrier. This meant I had to wear a hydration belt and carry some food with me. Desp... read more
