  1. RUN
    good LSD in SNP 20.1 mi 02:58 08:52 pace

    Another perfect Sonoran morning for a jog. Nice and cool ~ 50 at the start and close to 80 by the end. About 1/3 on dirt, and 1150 vert.  Mostly Z2 with some Z3 for the hills.  Achilles and knee st... read more

      nope. not even close. 3 weeks to my 'tune-up' half marathon, and 7 weeks until marathon day. I still have 350-400 more miles between me and race day to get myself injured. Guess I better go shoe shopping.

    4 Solid weeks of running... and today I rest. But, has everyone noticed how strange DM's plotting routine is? 30ish mile weeks look to be *1/4* the distance of the 60 mile weeks.

      Totally got into it whenever I could catch up on it on my iPhone. I realize how wild my life has become when I HAD to go for a run in the morning, and I spent any chance I could catching up on an Ironman Tri.

      OK Hil and Ben. No- I mostly do not run on 'mills. I really enjoy outdoor running, but I don't 'diss the 'mill. it's good for certain things. it was what I needed last night, as I wanted 'controlled conditions' without hills to do some limited speed work. it worked.

      No worries Morey, I've done a few TM runs too. I don't know anyone that hasn't had to use one from time to time. I almost wish I owned one for those rare days when getting out is too much to deal with. But that's like once a year or less, and I don't have the space for one anyway. I think the most I've ever run on a TM was 12 miles. I've done that twice. Hated it both times. I admire the people that can run that much on them.
