  1. RUN
    good 5 mi

    First run in new Hoka One One's, that I hope to use for the 100. Felt crazy, like moon shoes!

  2. RUN
    good Chunn's Cove in Asheville 7 mi 01:01 08:42 pace

    Normal 7-mile route at easy pace. Wore Brooks PureDrift ... I have to be careful not to run too much in them, or my calves get tight, but they seem to prevent IT band pain on runs.

      Good news on the shoes. Nice 7 btw.

  3. RUN
    good Kenilworth in Asheville 5.5 mi 00:50 09:05 pace

    Took it easy to make sure IT band was okay, but no pain! Nice recovery run after Sunday long run.

      Thanks! I've been running, of course. Just not using DailyMile. :) But I want to add a little accountability, so I'm back!

  4. RUN
    good Town Mountain and Chunn's Cov... 18 mi

    Easiest 18 miles I've ever run, especially considering that Town Mountain is a decent climb. Some worrisome IT stuff going on with my left knee though, with only 6 weeks until Burning River 100.

  5. Running the Falmouth Road Race this weekend after the New Balance media retreat! Anyone else running?

  6. RUN
    good 3.5 mi 00:25 07:08 pace

    Back!

  7. I must say Boston has given me more inspiration to train than I've had in a long time. Perhaps it's time to start posting workouts on DM again, for some good old accountability. ;)

  8. RUN
    good Boston Marathon 26.2 mi 03:39 08:20 pace

    Loved it. Made me realize I need to get back to Boston and show up in great shape to race it. That will probably take a sub-3 marathon to qualify though.

  9. Ran for just a few mins rehabbing the IT band... :) Loving my new Brooks Green Silence, just reviewed them here: http://www.nomeatathlete.com/green-silence-review/

      Hey Matt! Do we know each other? Did you write for me for RRCA's Footnotes years ago? We def should have "run" into each other in small town Bel Air!

    good Vermont 50-Miler 50 mi 10:11 12:12 pace

    Incredible race. I wasn't really as prepared as I should be, but "conquering" this course (if you can call it that) is something I'll always be proud of. And believe it or not... read more

      astounding, matt! sounds like it was a tough course. reading about your intense 50 miler experience is making me a little less apprehensive about tackling my first 50k at the end of the month.

  11. RUN
    great Neighborhood 4 mi 00:32 08:00 pace

    Since I ran a 30-miler so close to race day, I've taken a few days off to help my body recover. Any evidence that light running is better than total rest for recovery?

      I think light running is better for recovery than too much rest. I find I am less sore if I follow a long run with a short recovery run.

      I find I'm sore after a long run much longer if I sit around and do nothing than if I'm up and moving around, whether its a light run, out in my yard, playing with my kids, whatever...I just have to keep moving. My recovery time after a long run becomes about 24 hours and then I'm fine (vs multiple days of soreness if I just sit around)

    great 30 mi 04:55 09:50 pace

    Okay, so it's a little close to my 50-miler (two weeks) to be doing a 30. But I haven't trained all that much this summer and absolutely needed this to have any confidence going in. And... read more

      You will do great. And if you are already an experienced distance runner, these periods of "off" seem to help more than hurt. Fresh legs are a wonderful thing. Great job today.

      Way to get out there, Matt. I know things have been difficult for ya lately. Did you do the Forest Hill Trail? BTW, Bec and I are going to do The Dominator 5/10k this Saturday out on the Forest Hill Ma/Pa trail. Stop on by if you guys are not doing anything.

  17. I need to get back to running. But it's so damn hot out and so cool in.

  18. It's been two full weeks since I've run, and I'm totally cool with that after the 50. Back at it this week.

  19. RUN
    Forest Hill area 5.9 mi 00:54 09:09 pace

    Nice morning run with Joe (RunDad4Two) http://www.dailymile.com/people/Rundad4two. Realized there's a trail way closer to my house than I thought!
