  6. RUN
    alright Stamford, CT 8.5 mi 01:20 09:24 pace

    Felt good to get and run with my brother after driving. Lots of slush. At least there were a couple hills.

  7. RUN
    good TM 8 mi 01:11 08:52 pace

    Actually feel like I loosened up a bit and got in a grove. I think I have some mental block keeping me from being comfortable on the 'mill

    alright treadmill 7 mi 00:57 08:08 pace

  12. RUN
    good C&O canal Carderock 22 mi 03:09 08:35 pace

    22 miler #2 - better than the first two weeks ago (by 10 minutes), negative split by 2 minutes. Again started at Carderock going north-west; wind not too bad, not much ice on the path. Beautiful b... read more

  13. swim
    great indoor scy 2400 yd 00:45 33:00 pace

    good PBT to UMD 10.5 mi 01:34 08:57 pace

    So nice to be back doing intervals outside instead of on the dreadmill!!! A bit icy this morning, especially on the bridges over stream. That definitely slowed me down a bit (guessing 3 -4 sec for ... read more

  15. swim
    great indoor scy 2500 yd 00:59 41:32 pace

    More rest between intervals than normal so it took longer than expected. But distance is what I was aiming for. Able to consistently get my 100's in at 1:25 now. Thinking I should cut the swim... read more

  17. RUN
    alright Greenbelt Park 6.6 mi 01:04 09:41 pace

    Second run of the day. Possibly didn't drink enough water.

    1 mile warm up loop and run to trail head - 13:09
    5.3 mile loop - 50:32 - struggled last mile. Legs did not want to go up hills

  18. RUN
    great RI / TT / PBT / NEBT 10 mi 01:17 07:40 pace

    Back after a couple days off to rest. Might have done too much - second run really wore out my quads & hammies. But this first run was good. Didn't realize just how good until I entered th... read more

      Son of b*tch! My teammates have run this race before and they were some laughing when they said I would be "good" for the last leg! I knew it! Yep my HAT training will prepare me for this. Can't decide to go for it, speed wise or be conservative. I have a 26 mile training run the next day. Decisions, decisions!

    alright TM 7 mi 00:58 08:17 pace

    Still sluggish from weekend workouts, dialed it back a bit. Very warm on the 'mill, think I lost at least a pound in sweat. Not enough gumption to run in 20 degree temps with probable spots of... read more
