  1. RUN
    good Scrub Run 5K (3.16 miles) 3.16 mi 00:32 10:14 pace

    I took off yesterday so I could feel well-rested for today's race. It started 5 minutes from home on roads I drive all the time so I knew there are not many flat stretches along this route.

  2. RUN
    good Summer's Arrived 3 3 mi 00:34 11:18 pace

    This is the beginning of the hot muggy weather that Atlanta is famous for. Just kind of "jogged" this morning, because i have been running frequently, my body is tired, and it was 72 deg... read more

  3. RUN
    good Brookwood Easy 3 3 mi 00:33 11:00 pace

    I had a 4-hour webinar I was conducting from 8-12 this morning, so it was up and out early this morning for an easy 3 before all the fun and games started. Another day of near-record heat is on ta... read more

  4. RUN
    good Effort-Based 4.6 4.6 mi 00:53 11:31 pace

    Working more towards effort-based training, so I'll be watching my heart rate more than my pace per mile. Hoping to ramp up this summer for a fall half-marathon, which means more miles in the... read more

      That's a good goal, Michael. And yes, here comes the heat - I'm not ready for it.

      That is great, Michael...I am also training for the 3 local half marathons in the fall here, and there is just no way to beat the heat! I try to get out the door by 6 a.m.! Good luck!

  5. RUN
    good Big creek Greenway 4 4 mi 00:46 11:33 pace

    Very slow, but after yesterday's 10K, very comfortable. Glad to have a decent mileage week, and a good start to the month.

  6. RUN
    alright 6.2 mi 01:07 10:46 pace

    Just a so-so 10K. Been away for two weeks, and I think I was still recovering from the trip home. Didn't really feel like racing, but wanted the miles, so basically just jogged the course. ... read more

  7. RUN
    alright Another slow Alamogordo 3 miles. 3 mi 00:44 14:30 pace

    It was noticably more humid today (68% today vs. 33% yesterday) and a bit mor breezy as well. Another morning i really had to drag myself out of bed, but a 4:30 alarm is never easy. You just have... read more

  8. RUN
    Alamogordo 3 3 mi 00:34 11:22 pace

    Really tired when I got up this morning, but went through the motions and got out for a slow, easy 3. Got out a little before 6. It's a good time to run this time of year here. There is eno... read more

  9. RUN
    good Alamogordo 4 miles 4 mi 00:45 11:07 pace

    Finally got tired of running slow, and 2 miles into the run, decided to stretch it out a little bit, and picked up the pace. It actually went pretty well, and the last 2 miles were under 11. Stil... read more

  10. RUN
    good Alamogordo Desert Run 4.01 mi 00:46 11:28 pace

    The course looks very boring from an oiverhead perspective, but is really fairly nice. Mountains in the background are a nice touch. Weather (cool and sunny) early in the day is a bonus, even tho... read more

  11. RUN
    alright Big Creek Greenway 4 miles 4 mi 00:44 11:02 pace

    Warm, overcast, and humid this morning. Got to the greenway a little before 7:30 this morning. As Atlanta summer conditions start to set in, there will be no more sleeping late on run days.

      Funny - I was on the north end of the greenway at about the same time as you were further south and I described it as "cool overcast and humid". But then I was probably a good 20 feet higher in elevation. ;>]. Glad to hear you've got a good set up for running in May during your travel.

      Sorry Bill. I would not 70° at 7:30 in the morning in Atlanta as cool. It was definitely uncomfortable and muggy on my end.

  12. RUN
    good Brookwood Lower Loop 3 mi 00:32 10:31 pace

    Work distractions got in the way of my running in the early part of the week, then a cold hit for the close of it. Cold Ezee seems to have pretty well knocked it out, so got out around 8 this morn... read more

    good Brookwood Easy 3 3 mi 00:32 10:32 pace

    How is that for consistancy? 10:31, 10:32, and 10:33. Not a bad shakeout run after yesterday. Yesterday was just one of those days I probably should have taken a day off. Today felt good. Ran easil... read more

    tired Sweetwater 420 5K 3.19 mi 00:35 10:49 pace

    Way too many people for the course provided. Wasn't feeling good anyway, so decided before the start to just jog it like a regular run. Hey, free beer and a T-shirt at the finish. Why not?

    Could not sleep well last night, so took advantage of it, and ran early this morning. 3 miles as the sun was coming up.

  16. RUN
    alright Brookwood easy 3 3 mi 00:32 10:35 pace

    It still feels like I'm just going through the motions, but the good news is, it's still motions, and they are forward and a little less slow each day. While I am waiting for the pure jo... read more

      A thoughtful run this morning, Michael. When travelling and the outside run choices aren't good, I like a good fitness center workout on the elliptical or the stationary bike just as much.

      Nice plodding this morning :). For 9 years I traveled just about every week for my job, and was often uncomfortable running outside in unknown areas, so took advantage of fitness centers. I learned to like the tready, and the lipty was my go-to for cross-training. I also brought DVDs or watched YouTube videos to do stretch/strength workouts in my room. A light evening workout is a good idea to stave off unhealthy habits!
