    Wonderful 6 mi 01:11 11:51 pace

    I have not had much of an appetite lately. I wasn't sure how this run was going to go because of lack of carbs or anything much at all. Buuuut...

    Weekend long run 12 mi 02:18 11:28 pace

      Agreed! Then there's this: Caballo Blanco (from Christopher McDougall's 'Born To Run'): “The problem with most people is they only care about getting fast, and think that once they get fast, running will get easy. They got it backwards. First focus on getting easy, because if that's all you get, that ain't so bad. Once you can run easy, focus on light. Once you get light, focus on smooth. By the time you're easy, light and smooth, you won't have to worry about getting fast--you will be.”

    Is there any temperature that will keep you indoors for your workout?

    I don't like cold, but cold + wind will keep me in more than anything. Days like that I wish I had a tread... read more
