  2. RUN
    good Brazen Coyotes = Fartleks 3.5 mi 00:30 08:38 pace

    I was thinking about longer today, but the left achilles and right PF are still troublesome, so this was just a little bit of moving to keep the blood flowing. 50 degrees. just getting light. be... read more

    good Breezy swim 1750 yd 00:30 30:10 pace

    Would have been longer- but once again, spent too much time chatting with Alice and Jill. Sky was partly cloudy and breezy today. Nice little swim. 500 w/u, 500 moderate, 250 kicks, 250 hard, the... read more

  5. RUN
    good TRP Run up Sabino Canyon 7.41 mi 01:07 09:00 pace

    I had forgotten how magically beautiful Sabino Canyon is in the early morning- especially in the spring with so many flowers. Met up with the TRP group, always friendly, took our picture and heade... read more

    good 1st Run After 3.46 mi 00:30 08:43 pace

    Yay- running again. Felt pretty good. Still a few little sore muscles left over from Monday, but it was a beautiful morning. Ben was thrilled to be running again, as was I. Nice little short loo... read more

  7. swim
    good 'nother swim 2000 yd 00:34 29:55 pace

    Sunny. Warm. No wind. The only one in the pristine pool. Perhaps a little lonely, but it kept me from yada yadaing my workout away. The legs are beginning to feel spritely again, but I'm sav... read more

      If you would have told me a year and a half ago my name would be attached to a swim routine, I would have told you that you're smoking something.

    great After Work splash 1250 yd 00:20 28:09 pace

    That felt just terrific to do a nice stretch out swim. My legs are feeling surprisingly good. Minimal soreness. I can easily do steps, even jump-squats. Can't wait to run again... but not fo... read more

    great Boston Marathon 26.2 mi 03:24 07:46 pace

    Everyone has their story. Some routes are easier, some are harder. Mine is probably about average. Regardless- it has been a long road. The first time I qualified for Boston was in in my 2nd ma... read more

    great Magnificent Boston Shakeout 4 mi 00:37 09:15 pace

    Firstly- it's a spectacular day in the city. Clear, sunny, 50. Just perfect to be out for a jog. Unlike NYCM, the Boston runners seem to be the majority around here. The whole downtown area i... read more

      I've only got the NYCM experience to draw from, so I'll be relying on you to paint me the picture of Boston. I hope the hat keeps you warm enough before the start of the race. Once again...GOOD LUCK!

  14. RUN
    good 5 w/ 6x100m pickups 5.4 mi 00:45 08:19 pace

    Legs are feeling almost ready. Still some lower leg pains- but they'll be plenty of other things hurting during the marathon way more than those. Tossed in 6 x 100m pickups, just like Pfitz ... read more

  15. #dailymission You only have 30 minutes to get in your workout/train-what are you doing? Blowing off the workout.

      stop running!! kidding. but dang, pfitz is aggressive. funny (not funny) that the weather here has been chilly basically until this weekend, when it'll probably be a lot closer to what you're used to. dress rehearsal might have been possible? MP with 140s is a dream. very nice.

    I always lose count and never really know if I did the right number of pickups. Looks like I got my 6 in today. Pace was ~4:40/mi. Or, about the same pace as world class runners do marathons. I ... read more

      Some years ago I looked at my pace as I ran down a hill and it dropped under 5 min pace and I thought to myself that my pace going down the hill was almost as fast as the Olympic qualifiers I had just watched a few days earlier were averaging for the entire marathon. It's pretty humbling sometimes.

      I'm so glad I'm not the only person to lose count! A few years ago I saw a video where Anderson Cooper ran against Shalane on the track. He's an athletic guy, so I figured he had a chance. She gave him a head start, and then absolutely dropped him. I am still boggled by that kind of speed over the course of a marathon. Amazing stuff. Well done today!
