  1. RUN
    Recovery Run 6 mi 00:47 07:53 pace

    Run #1 for today. Just a quick 4 tonight.

  2. RUN
    Long Run 17 mi 02:09 07:34 pace

    This one was a real struggle. My legs were shot, especially the first few miles. Ah well, got it done.

  3. RUN
    Tempo Run 10 mi 01:08 06:47 pace

    4 miles tempo, all about 5:46. Humidity was bullshit.

  4. RUN
    Medium Long 12 mi 01:27 07:13 pace

    Pretty chill 12. Listened to the Giant Bombcast and it made it go by pretty quickly. This is a slight recovery week so no 15 thankfully.

  5. RUN
    Easy 8 w/10 strides. 8.2 mi

    Finally stepped on the new track. Those jokers at the park district really need to take the stupid fence down since the damn thing is finished.

  6. RUN
    Long Run 18.2 mi 02:15 07:24 pace

    God I hate the Air & Water Show weekend. If I had a car I'd absolutely go run ANYWHERE else, but alas. I don't even know if any planes are gonna fly with the low cloud cover. Run w... read more

  7. RUN
    Recovery Run 5 mi 00:40 08:04 pace

    Nice and relaxing recovery jog.

  8. RUN
    Tempo Run 10 mi 01:06 06:38 pace

    3 mile warmup, 5 miles at 15k-HM goal pace, or about 5:40-5:48, and 2 mile cooldown. Splits for the tempo were: 5:50, 5:47, 5:47, 5:46, 5:40. Really focused on trying to hold my form late in the ... read more

  9. RUN
    Recovery Run 5 mi

    No watch, but I'll give you a hint, it was really slow.

  10. RUN
    Medium Long 15 mi 01:50 07:19 pace

    Packing in those miles. Saw Dan K. fly past me somewhere near mile 4. Legs were fairly tired but otherwise uneventful podcast filled run.

  11. RUN
    Medium Long 13.2 mi

    Bathroom break included. Thankfully made it to Mariano's on Foster. Thought I could make it home but my body insisted differently.

  12. RUN
    good Marathon Pace Long Run 17.1 mi 01:53 06:36 pace

    W/U 4 miles in 29:04, then 10 Miles at goal MP, which is about 6:05-06. Trying to ease into the first few miles and finish a bit faster than goal.

    6:12, :12, :10, :04, 05, :03, :10, 5:58, 6:03, 5:... read more

  13. RUN
    Recovery Run 5 mi

    Low and Slow.

  14. RUN
    Medium Long Run 13 mi 01:35 07:18 pace

    Took the day off to relax with my wife who's been on England for almost 2 weeks. Nice late morning run.

  15. RUN
    Medium Long Run 12 mi

    No watch or anything today, just a quiet run. Legs were a bit tired, so I took it fairly easy.

  16. RUN
    Mind Clearing 6 6 mi

    Just a quick 6 to relieve frustration after a restless night, trying to figure out a way to get my wife home from London on standby. Oh travel woes.

  17. RUN
    Run + 8 strides 9 mi

    Really 8 miles with 8x 100m strides with 100m recovery, adding up to the 9th mile. Did the strides on the grass, felt really good. Trying to really focus on form and drive during the strides. It... read more

  18. RUN
    Long Run 17 mi 02:13 07:50 pace

    Long and slow. Knew from the beginning my body was tired and just needed to take it easy. Pushing would only put me in a hole I don't want to climb out of.
