  1. Entering week four of consistent running, 3 miles or so, 3 times a week. Glad that I'm able to stick with it without much effort this time around. I think I burnt myself out with so much dista... read more

      Enjoying it, and being healthy-- the most important reasons to do this. We tend to get caught up in it, and do a lot more than fitness and enjoyment require. From that point, it's easy to cross the line into burnout, a bad place to be. Hope your break was just what you needed, Keith-- your comeback is going well, and running without pressure always feels best!

      It was fun for a long time, but started to become forced after my last marathon. It's starting to be fun again now.

    alright Tough one 3.01 mi 00:31 10:17 pace

    Some days you eat the bear, and some days the bear eats you. This run was four minutes slower than Saturday's, on an easier course. Thought I was going to die on the first half mile. First mi... read more

      Yep, those factors can sure mess with one's run. Nice to still pull off that great last mile!

    good 3.01 mi 00:28 09:25 pace

    Another day, another route. Today' route led to a trail that I walk my dog on almost every day, but had never run. Not bad, but only around a half mile of trail before you wind up on a golf co... read more

      I've run almost all of these routes before. Most of them many times. But did discover a couple directions I haven't gone yet. One is a trail that I walk my dog on just about every day. Never run it though. That'll be tomorrow!

    Overslept yesterday, so got a run in this morning. I'm mapping all the major 3 mile out-and-back runs from my house. I've identified 10 different directions I can go. Today's was #5.... read more

      Looking good, Keith! I do most of my easy running with Garmin display set on time of day to avoid pace pressure--distance sounds like a good option also.

      thanks Vern. I just do that so I know when to go home. :) I generally know my turnaround points, but I'm trying to vary my routes these days.

      I do the same thing - my garmin has been set for distance only on my runs for a year now. Really has helped me run to effort, versus worrying about meeting a specified arbitrary pace. Welcome back! Keep up the good work!

  9. RUN
    good Week 2 3.01 mi 00:31 10:24 pace

    Late posting Monday's run. First mile of this was rough. Too much Mother's Day chicken tikka masala Sunday night. But things smoothed out and the rest of the run went pretty well.

  10. RUN

    Well, that wasn't so hard. I think I'll do it again next week.

  11. RUN
    good Keeping it going 3 mi 00:29 09:46 pace

    Two runs. In the same week. Could be the start of something. A little stiff the last couple of days, as my muscles get used to running, but overall good.

    Been following the 10% rule for some time now. But 10% of zero is zero, so I haven't progressed at all. Tried an infinite percent increase today. Just going to try for some consistency in sche... read more

      Smart call on yesterday's run. I bail if I'm feeling particularly fragile (or whatever) on a given day. Nice long miles today, you're doing great!

      Nice job on the big hills, Keith! Those HR straps can be troublesome for sure-- mine give erratic readings if I don't dampen it enough and get it perfectly situated.

      I think the static electricity really gets cranked up in this cold weather too. So I need to take extra care to avoid it.
