  1. RUN
    good Streak day 94 3 mi 00:39 12:58 pace

    Not feeling it today. It was so wretchedly hot and humid. I ran all the hills, listened to the "Lime in the coconut" playlist and discovered it kind of goes off the rails there after a ... read more

    good Walking with Penny 5.2 mi 01:30 17:18 pace

    Met Penny for a walk after my "run" She told me all about her half ironman and pretty successfully convinced me to do some sort of insane Run/Swim race where we are tethered together... ... read more

  3. RUN
    good Run With Hope 5K 3.1 mi 00:38 12:19 pace

    I totally struggled with pacing during this race. It was a tiny tiny race, and I struggled with pacing. I knew I was going too fast, but I had trouble slowing down, so...of course it was a frustr... read more

      It is difficult to maintain your pace - at least for me - in a small race. But congrats on a nice 5k, Holly. Glad you had fun.

  5. walk
    good treadmill incline walk 1 mi 00:17 17:00 pace

    Put the incline up to 5.5 and strolled... not as great a workout as the stair master, but... some days are not stair master days!

  6. RUN
    good streak day 91 1 mi 00:11:50 11:50 pace

    I am still amazed at how much better I feel since I started running pre-work! So much less achey. Not any faster, but I think I will be prepared for Ragnar Del Sol in February.

  7. swim
    good short course heaven 1800 yd 00:52 50:50 pace

    good day for a swim, felt it mostly in the abs... this weather is delightful. I am however, a bit concerned about Puerto Rico...

  8. RUN
    good Morning 2.5 mi 00:30 12:09 pace

    Getting out the door in the morning remains a challenge for me, but I was rewarded by a really nice run. I found a new playlist on spotify "lime in the coconut" which is pretty good- th... read more

      Checked a medicine forum and found reasons for muscle cramps in general:
      - Lack of calcium
      - Poor blood circulation
      - Muscle overload
      I'd certainly suggest you few days of only less intensive workouting. Take care!

      I get cramps... in my case due to joint damage that causes poor blood circulation. In your case it is probably due to pushing too hard and as Drago says, escalate less rapidly.

      I think it may be a calcium thing, I also have issues in that leg due to nerve damage that I had not thought about!! Interesting!

  10. swim
    good 2 sessions 2400 yd 01:03 46:12 pace

    two sessions of identical workouts. 250 pull, 50 kick... repeat and repeat. Pool is really really nice if a little crowded. Soon enough it will be "winter" and there will be less traff... read more

    good well now.. not what I planned. 5.1 mi 01:08 13:20 pace

    good treadmill 2 mi 00:25 12:37 pace
