  1. RUN
    Recovery Run 7 mi 00:56 07:58 pace

    Have a tough tempo run coming tomorrow so I just focused on keeping it real relaxed and not worrying about the watch.

  2. RUN
    Medium Long 15 mi 01:47 07:09 pace

    Nice crisp 15 miles this morning. Not too fast, but not pokey either. Was windy heading south, but made it up hovering around 7 flat and even a bit under most of the way north. Brian Posehn'... read more

      Thanks Tom! Not doing my highest mileage ever but my most consistently high in a long time. The Marathon will be here before I know it!

      Bayshore in Traverse City MI. I did it several years ago. It's a really pretty medium sized race with a flat course and always a solid field.

  3. RUN
    Easy Run 9 mi 01:08 07:35 pace

    Was supposed to include some strides in this run, but the path was just too slippery to be doing any fast running at all. I couldn't even maintain a decent pace while concentrating on staying... read more

  4. RUN
    MP Long Run 18 mi 01:58 06:33 pace

    A really solid hard long run. 4 miles warmup, 12 at marathon pace, and 2 cooldown. MP is about 6:06-6:09 right now, somewhere in the low 2:40 range. I knew the wind would be strong out of the so... read more

  5. RUN
    Recovery Run 6 mi 00:48 08:01 pace

    Really nice relaxing run on a gorgeous morning.

  6. RUN
    Afternoon Run 10 mi 01:10 07:02 pace

    Early work, so a post work run. Didn't mind as much as usual since it meant I got to wear shorts and a t-shirt. As usual, felt a little bloated, but still kept a decent pace.

  7. RUN
    Medium Long 15 mi 01:49 07:14 pace

    Clearly getting stronger. Expected this to be a real slog with a hard workout yesterday, but it really wasn't all that bad. Strength equals speed!

  8. RUN
    Track Workout 11.25 mi

    3 mile warmup, and few strides, 5x1200 @ 5k pace(roughly 4:00, or 5:20 pace), 600 jog recovery, which ended up being about 3-3:15, and then 2.75 miles cooldown, for about 11.25 miles. Repeat were ... read more

  9. RUN
    Easy Run 6 mi 00:45 07:33 pace

    Run #1. 4 easy miles tonight.

  10. RUN
    Long Run 17 mi 02:06 07:24 pace

    This run was about as steady and even as it gets. No need to get too serious on this light recovery week.

  11. RUN
    Recovery Run 5 mi 00:40 08:01 pace

    Nice and easy treadmill run. Could've run outside, but it rained while I was walking my dog, and I just didn't want to risk the potential of getting soaked, even if it rained for 2 minut... read more

  12. RUN
    Treadmill Tempo Run 10 mi 01:10 07:00 pace

    Good god, that was the longest treadmill run I've done in a long time. Thankfully I had a good podcast for the warmup/cooldown, and a hot playlist for the 4 miles of tempo. It took a lot to ... read more

  13. RUN
    Recovery Run 4 mi 00:33 08:07 pace

    Very easy recovery run. Nice cool morning, and legs were tired but not too badly beat up.

  14. RUN
    Medium Long Run 15 mi 01:52 07:28 pace

    I REALLY didn't want to deal with the wind on a run this long, but I sure as heck wasn't gonna do it inside. Wasn't as bad as it could've been since the wind was from the west-... read more

  15. RUN
    General Aerobic run w/strides 8 mi 00:56 06:58 pace

    Just a pretty simple 8 miler with 10 100m strides in the back half. Really nice morning starting off what ended up being a really warm Chicago day.

  16. RUN
    Long Run 18 mi 02:12 07:21 pace

    With the exception of the weather this run was pretty uneventful. As usual, the wind from turnaround to the North Ave bridge was awful. You know the story.

  17. RUN
    PM Recovery Run 8 mi 01:03 07:51 pace

    Wife wanted breakfast in the AM, so I postponed this one for after work. Usually I hate running after work, but this ended up being rather peaceful. I took it real easy more because of my long ru... read more

  18. RUN
    Aborted Tempo Run 6 mi

    Ugh, the potential rain(though I don't think it ever got above a mild drizzle) and high winds drove me to attempt this on the treadmill. This was a mistake in more ways than one because I hat... read more

      Weirdly-calibrated treadmills are stupid.

    Recovery Run 4 mi 00:31 07:48 pace

    Felt pretty good, just a relaxed 4. Nothing else really of note.
