    good Tuesday Tempo? 9.1 mi 01:19 08:40 pace

    Good solid run.  Felt pretty recovered after yesterday's rest, and took it at a nice moderate pace through most, but hit it to tempo on one hill climb and 95% on that last climb back up into t... read more

  2. #dailymission What advice you would give a couch potato who wants to lose weight and get fit? Don't do it! Stay fat and flabby instead. Makes the rest of us seem more attractive.

    alright Easy Sunday Seven 7.03 mi 01:05 09:18 pace

    Feeling the effects of yesterday's long run. Fatigued and a few little sore places- so I made it a nice easy Zone 1 jog today. Course, there was still 800ft of vert in there. I don't m... read more

    good LSD- Berkshire ramble 19.2 mi 03:00 09:23 pace

    Nice big loop around the Berks. Perfect running morning. Overcast and in the 60's. 2300ft of ups and downs - nothing flat around here. Some trails, but mostly road- and all very pretty; la... read more

  6. Tossed in a lot of speed work (for me) this week. Feel great, but fatigued. Been a good week. Today: Rest day. Tomorrow- LSD.

      @ann. I think I've got a BQ -5 to -10 in me right now (perfect conditions). I could conceivably shoot for a September marathon to capture that, but I don't really wanna fly across country and do 10 laps of a 3mi flat loop somewhere, just to BQ. Just not fun. I'd rather stay local and just do the Tucson or Phoenix marathons, and do Boston in 2016.

      Yes- 5k's scare me as well. They're much worse than Half Mary's, as you are above threshold for most of it. But- I think that's the idea. ;)

    good Polar Vortex 7.2 mi 01:03 08:44 pace

    Polar Vortex Run.  A nice crisp 50 degrees- a true pleasure for July.  Just an easy, base building run after two days of speed.  Felt fine.  Strava says 880 ft of climbing in there.  Nope- nothing ... read more

    good Cincinnati Track Day 6.4 mi 00:52 08:03 pace

    In Cincinnati on biz, and google maps, showed me a high school track about a mile from my hotel. perfect. Did a nice warm up jog over there, and hit some Yasso 800's. Result: 3:08, 2:57, 3:... read more

    good Steamy 9.1 mi 01:19 08:37 pace

    Rained all last night, so this morning was really humid. Steamy even. Legs still feel weak, but a day of rest brought them up to 'serviceable', and I even enjoyed most of the run. 1000... read more

    alright Sl-ugh-ish 13.5 mi 02:08 09:29 pace

    Ugh. Felt like crap from beginning to end. Granted, perhaps the 1700ft of vert contributed, but for some reason, my legs just feel like lead. Was planning an 18mi run, but cut it short. Started... read more

      @tom. We have a house sitter that spends a lot of time with the dogs. She'll take them out and they get to freely run around our large horse boarding facility. So, exercise isn't the problem. It's our "relationship" that we'll both miss.
