    good Lavalanche run... 5.06 mi 00:48 09:34 pace

    Several false starts due to uhmmm... "digestive" issues delayed my start time by almost an hour. It would have been so easy to call it a sick day and go sit in the A/C but that is the eas... read more

    Just grinding them out... 5.25 mi

    Paying the pied piper by grinding them out even on days I don't want to run. It was hot, it was sweaty, so it was pretty normal for this time of year.

    As you can see, just another normal day is the Southwest.

    Today I just ran a little as I was not really feeling all that well today. Despite getting decent sleep and having a rest day I was feeling really low on energy and the legs were tight. I had to ma... read more

      So sorry to hear about all that's going on right now! While some of the changes sound like they'll be tough to navigate (but I know you can do it!) new opportunity sounds exciting. Best of luck with everything to come and looking forward to hearing about the new adventures!

      Big changes, David-- and I'm sure you'll handle them well! No worries if you don't get much time for DM-- get the runs and rides that you can squeeze in, and we'll still be here when things ease up. Good luck!

    It's been a while since I pushed past the 10 mile mark on a long run so my brain had conveniently forgotten the difficulty of going longerisher distances. I sweat so hard that it was worse tha... read more

  6. RUN
    good Runch Run 5.5 mi 00:54 09:47 pace

    My target pace was 10 min as I just wanted to run a full 5 w/o taking any water breaks or stops to bring the HR back down. It was 94F when I started the run and it was 97F when I finished.

      Great fantasy, David-- I need to channel a bit of that blizzard into my workouts. Great bike miles in the brutal temps!

    blah Quasi Rest Day 5.25 mi 00:48 09:09 pace

    Just ran a simple 5er this AM. It was all I had in me today - feeling a little wimpy. Still I was sweating profusely (more than usual) when I really did not have a reason to be. Plus I have some im... read more

    Time is an estimate based on the truck clock (close enough). I had to force myself to gear up and get on the bike b/c I just wasn't feeling it. So I pushed off (tech free) and had mentally con... read more

    Slower feet. Mission was to just keep it super slow & super easy - no tech b/c that would just mess my slowass mojo up. Sometime you just have to take you slow sweet time and make it last as lo... read more

      Great job getting that slow run done! It is so hard sometimes not to think about the pace. Smart decision to stay tech free!

      Slow sometimes is good! I enjoy runs without electronics as well so I just run comfortably without pressure (and then I come map them out after).

      I love that--letting the run itself take over, extinguishing the urgency we tend to have with speed (or strength or endurance) goals and listening to what the run tells us to do! Rock on, buddy!!!
