  1. RUN
    good Just like starting over... 1 mi 00:11:12 11:11 pace

    Making the go of running again. I have been in a definite exercise malaise since leaving the hospital in August. A meeting with a new doctor today, who is taking a more science-based approach, with... read more

  2. RUN
    great Overcoming mental barriers 2.1 mi

    I've had a lot of trepidation and mental challenges since going to the hospital in August for pulmonary embolism and clots in the 6 largest veins of my right leg. My right leg is still quite s... read more

  3. RUN
    good 1 mile 1 mi

    It's not doing anyone any good to pretend I can run a 3:30 marathon at any time. It's also not doing anyone any good for me to have great consternation about running because I can't ... read more

  4. RUN
    tired Running again 2.9 mi

    Ugh. That was, quite literally, my worst run ever. I am so out of shape, and have so far to go. But there's only one way to get there, and that started today.

  5. RUN
    good Sunday morning: guilt by Timehop 3.1 mi

    Timehop: on this day you've previously done 20 mile runs, finished 70 mile weeks, and run half-marathon PRs. Twitter: your friends are running marathons today. Guilt by timehop: just the nudge... read more

  6. RUN
    good Lake Placid-Mirror Lake-Mirac... 4.11 mi

    Gorgeous run through Lake Placid, past the Miracle on Ice stadium and along Mirror Lake.

  7. RUN
    good 5K with B 3.1 mi

    Another evening run with B.

  8. RUN
    good Evening 5K with B 3.1 mi

    Considering it was B's first run in 11 months, it went pretty well.

  9. RUN
    great South Beach: HEY IT'S WARM! 4.6 mi

    Collins Avenue to South Pointe Park and back along boardwalks and Ocean Drive. SUN, WARMTH, OCEAN, BEACH, PALM TREES. And one more time WARMTH!

  10. RUN
    good San Francisco run 3.7 mi

    Taylor-Folsom-Harrison to the waterfront-Embarcadero-Market-Geary. A few miles along flatter areas of SF.

  11. RUN
    Lunch run 2 mi

    A sign my brain is getting into the right place: I use the phrases "lunch run" and "I'll squeeze in whatever I can get in." (Though I hadn't built in a 20 minute wait ... read more

  12. RUN
    good SSS 4 mi

    Short slow short. It's like LSD, but without the long or the distance. Just some evening miles (in shorts even! though brisk).

  13. RUN
    good You have to (re)start somewhere 3 mi 00:27 08:58 pace

    First run in 6 months? Possibly. Ugh. Miles 9:41 8:55 8:20. Only 1 way to get back in shape, and that requires starting. This hurt far more than those numbers should indicate.

  14. RUN
    good Lunch cycle 17.74 mi 01:05 03:39 pace

    Miles.

  15. swim
    great Short race week swim 800 yd

    The rule "Don't swim for at least 30 minutes after eating a meal"? I broke that.

    Getting in some miles.

    blah Hilly 15.74 mi

    I could have chosen a substantially less hilly course today. Legs pretty fried. I suppose that was the point? Garmin went on the fritz then had a hard shutdown at halfway point, which also seemingl... read more

  18. RUN
    great Easy 10K 6.22 mi

    Watchless run where the goal was to keep the heart rate low while running in the midday heat. Solid happy run!

  19. swim
    good Short swim 600 yd 00:13:00 38:07 pace

    A (planned) short workout where my body said, "3 days swimming in a row after swimming once the previous 10 months? Ha, nice one!"
