  1. RUN
    good 3 x 1 mile repeats w/1 min rests 5.7 mi

    This was TOUGH but I'm thrilled I did what I need to. My goal pace for each was 6:44-6:56. It's amazing how a one minute rest feels slower and slower the more tired you get. I was at 7... read more

  2. RUN
    good Treadmill 5 5 mi 00:41 08:16 pace

    Thunderstorms kept me inside this morning but I still got a good run in.

  3. RUN

  4. RUN
    good Recovery run 5 mi 00:44 08:51 pace

    My feet and calves were a bit tight but loosened up nicely. I thought I might feel worse after yesterday's track meet but I'm recovered well.

  5. RUN
    good USATF Open/Masters Championsh... 6.25 mi

    800 - 2:41 (1 second off my PR) / 1500 - 5:37 This was much slower than I wanted to be. We had to deal with a bear of a headwind on the back stretch. I felt my effort was really good but couldn&#... read more

    good Easy run + 4x40 second strides 4.06 mi 00:33 08:07 pace

    This purpose was just to get loosened up. I have USATF Outdoor Masters/Open Championships tomorrow.

  7. RUN
    good Recovery run 4 mi 00:34 08:34 pace

    Oh the humidity can leave at any point.

  8. RUN
    good 6x400 @ mile pace with 1:30 r... 5 mi

    This was one of my hardest speed workouts in a while! My coach had me stay inside and run on the treadmill due to it being in the 90s and humid. I ran 5:20 pace. I was definitely at my max.

  9. RUN
    alright Hot and humid track run 6 mi 00:49 08:09 pace

    I lead a track group on Wednesday nights (cheerleader/helper not running) so after the crew left, I stayed and got six miles in on the track. You may think, "Oh my gosh! How boring to run th... read more

  10. RUN
    good Treadmill 5 5 mi 00:40 08:05 pace

    Hit the 'mill again

  11. RUN
    good Treadmill 5 (stupid hot outside) 5 mi 00:41 08:11 pace

    I decided that 90 degrees and high humidity was not a good mix for me so I hopped on the 'mill for some miles.

    good Strength work 00:40

  13. RUN
    good Capital Striders 8.55 mi 01:06 07:45 pace

    Well the humidity has arrived! I actually felt really good despite it. I could tell I was getting a bit drained in the last mile but knowing I didn't have much farther to go helped.

  14. RUN
    good Neighborhood out and back 5 mi 00:40 08:04 pace

    Boy acclimating to this instant summer weather is "fun". Ha! I ran the exact same time as I did yesterday for the same route without trying to. Now that is not something that happens o... read more

  15. RUN
    good Neighborhood out and back 5 mi 00:40 08:04 pace

    Man, it was HOT! There was some residual tightness in my right quad but overall much improved!

    good Neighborhood run 5 mi 00:40 07:59 pace

    HAPPY GLOBAL RUNNING DAY! I got 5 miles in after work. Temps were in the 80s but low humidity made it absolutely beautiful!

  17. RUN
    Treadmill 5 5 mi 00:41 08:16 pace

    Hit the 'mill this morning since my night is busy. My quads were still tight although not as much as yesterday. This week is a recovery week. Next week I get ready for my first track meet o... read more

  19. RUN
    good Neighborhood out and back 5 mi 00:42 08:21 pace

    The only thing that was bothering me were my tight quads. I'm sure that will subside. I know the half from Saturday is still lingering. It was still almost 90 when I headed out at 5:45 toni... read more

    good Dam to Dam Half Marathon 13.24 mi 01:36 07:13 pace

    Wow! It was warm and humid (68 degrees, sunny, and very little wind) at 7 a.m. I didn't have a time goal as I haven't been training for the half and instead middle distance events on th... read more
