  1. RUN
    good Matters of Perspective 12.9 mi 02:10 10:05 pace

    15 months ago I would have had to almost ruin myself to finish a run like this.

    12 months ago it would have been a complete impossibility.

  4. RUN
    alright A Sky Full of Stars 4 mi 00:39 09:37 pace

    Day-after-speedwork recovery runs are what they are. Sloggy and heavy and inconsistent and periodically maddening. So these are the days when I find any little opportunity to focus on/correct my fo... read more

    great Get Down, Stay Down 6.7 mi 01:00 08:56 pace

    This is how I roll:

    Drag my entirely tired body out of bed at 4:40.

    Immediately drop and knock out a 1:30 plank.

    Sit down at my desk and ponder life, the universe and everything for a few minute... read more

  6. So it's time for my annual sabbatical. As in each of the last two years, I just need to take some time to put in focused work on getting my head straight. I'll come back in due course, re... read more

    good Monday afternoon stroller stroll 2.09 mi 00:38 17:57 pace

    Phew! It is warm out there! After the little lady's nap she jumped in the stroller and we sauntered around the neighborhood soaking up some rays. Good start to the week!

  12. RUN
    great The White Room 5.25 mi 00:49 09:19 pace

    blah White Noise 4.54 mi 00:48 10:35 pace

    The morning after (the day before).

    On the heels of a horror show of broken sleep (and huge chunks of non-sleep), I threw myself out on the trail for some active recovery.
