  1. RUN
    good running from the bugs 8.5 mi 01:16 08:56 pace

    Still recovering from race, legs still a bit heavy. Warm and very humid; bugs out in force -- must be summer! Rest time between running is interesting keeping the bugs away. Then when I take my shi... read more

    great Jason's standard core plus extra 00:25

    Front, side, and reverse planks; bridge, bicycle, donkey kicks. Also 2 x 20 dips, 30 seconds of squats and one foot toe touches (35 per side)

  3. RUN
    good humid miles 7.5 mi 01:03 08:24 pace

    Cool but very humid. Sluggish, but that was expected after Sunday's race and yesterday's swim. Wanted to get the miles in to move the legs. Tried to take it easy on the first half, maybe ... read more

  4. swim
    good indoor scy 2600 yd 00:46 31:08 pace

    Felt a bit sluggish after Sunday's 10k, but surprisingly good. Body position was good and felt the extra speed from it. Last 400 with pull buoy was amazingly strong, considering. Marathon tra... read more

      Hope the sluggishness is temporary! Rail Trail marathon sounds great, hopefully the injury gods are nicer to you this time around!

      Thanks. Just got to stay smart. I can worry too much about potential injury from misplaced foot during trail race but not consider consequences of attempting a hard interval set just days after being sick. Symptoms of addiction ? .... Probably. But I'm learning from my mistakes.

    great Mt Hebron trail 10K 6.3 mi 00:53 08:24 pace

    Nice trail race - hills were concentrated in a couple place (last mile uphill with last 1/2 mile pretty tough) with long stretches of flat. Couple of stream crossings and muddy spots. Wore an old p... read more

    great Greenbelt Park 3 mi 00:28 09:20 pace

    Short and easy run with daughter #3 (who used to swim a lot). She's on break from school and taken up running. I tagged along to get my legs moving the day before my race. Tried really hard to... read more

    great limited intervals 2250 yd 00:44 34:25 pace

    Tried to keep it easy, nice to get in the water. Worked to keep it positive despite 1) dropping 1/2 banana on floor 2) getting on the beltway in the wrong direction so burned 15 minutes getting bac... read more

  9. RUN
    great Paint Branch Trail 4.5 mi 00:35 07:46 pace

    Really needed the stress relief. Same trail I usually run weekdays but started from a different place and really didn't look at my watch much. Didn't think I was going that fast (tried to... read more

  10. RUN
    great Greenbelt park 5.8 mi 00:51 08:47 pace

    One loop around perimeter trail. Cool morning, low humidity - not going to be many more mornings this nice during this summer. Think this is the fastest I've ever done this loop. Wearing VFF, ... read more

    great intervals in low humidity 8.5 mi 01:17 09:03 pace

    Wow! I knew this would be good weather-wise, but turned out to be a fantastic run! Cool (about 50) with low humidity, almost ideal conditions (low 40's is ideal for me). May not feel that cool... read more

    good four in VFF 4.5 mi 00:39 08:39 pace

    Warm and humid, but dew point a bit under 70. Looking forward to run at end of week - humidity should be much lower. Adding a bit more distance to running in VFF.

      Can never decide which I hate more, humidity or heat/sunshine. Combined is obviously the worst!

      Jacquelyn - I think the heat / sun is worse - really fries the brain and drains the energy.. At least with humidity I have learned that pushing the limits of the body in those conditions is beneficial in the long term and I will reap the benefits as soon as humidity drops (how ever many months away that is)

    good swim intervals 2900 yd 00:56 33:59 pace

    Great to get in the water the day after a run. Felt soooo nice. Arms were starting to feel fatigued by the time I got to the 4 x 50s. Happy Monday!
