  1. RUN
    alright Some wandering with Jim and C... 13.62 mi 02:04 09:06 pace

    Jim and his daughter Claire came over for a run and it was very nice to have company. We did a five mile loop at 9:30-10 min. pace and then I went on for another 8.5 or so. I'm pretty pleased ... read more

  2. RUN
    good Longer day with some around B... 22.13 mi 03:15 08:48 pace

    With temps in the 60s and high humidity and sporadic rain, this was a sweaty, muddy romp. Lots of folks out in the parks and feeling friendly, so that was nice. I got tired the last couple of miles... read more

      Seems like we're teetering and tottering as well as ever. Nice job on the run.

      We need to find a third partner and dump the bad karma on them. I'm thinking Kim Wrinkle, that cheery little sh*t ;-)

    good Errand run. 13.05 mi 01:53 08:39 pace

    In the spirit of Vern M. and his Banana Runs, I ran to the post office with a package and then some miles and back around to pick up a car at the fix-it shop. I had trouble finding my legs for a co... read more

  4. RUN
    alright Longer two loops of Burke Lake. 12.29 mi 01:50 08:57 pace

    This was all about recovery, though I can't say I feel all that recovered. Still, I survived yesterday's little speedy run without serious damage, so that is good enough for me.

      You are putting in some amazing mileage ... are you training for anything specific or just having fun?

    great To the track for 5k time trial. 12.5 mi

    4.5 miles warmup, a couple of strides, 5k (19.36) 4.75 warmdown/shuffle home. I am very pleased with this. And it's good to have a number to plug into the training formulas, providing hours of... read more

      Indeed, Diane. Note my workout from last Saturday. That said, the slow stuff never ends, it just gets supplemented. Otherwise, I would lose the benefits over time.

  7. RUN
    good Cross County Trail to Little ... 12.24 mi 01:46 08:39 pace

    Back to shuffling. I'm a touch stiff from yesterday's faster running, but nothing untoward. Now, to get the lawn mowed.

  8. RUN
    great Again to the track! 11 mi

    4.5 mile warmup, 2 x mile (6:30, 6:25) w/100 meter jog, 4.5 warmdown. Sometimes you just have a great workout. I was much scared to try running faster after so many weeks of shuffling and was very ... read more

  9. RUN
    alright Three laps of Burke Lake 14.88 mi 02:13 08:56 pace

    Wore my HR monitor today and really worked to keep the pace where is should be. Not to worry. It was so hot that I was lucky to maintain a shuffle :-)
    Y'all enjoy the weekend!

    good Cross county trail to Woodbur... 15.43 mi 02:12 08:33 pace

    It's a warm one out there today, but I felt better than yesterday. I'm having a bit of sciatic trouble this week, but today less so. I keep trying to slow the pace to closer to 9 min. mil... read more

    great Wakefield to Burke Lake twice. 12.11 mi 01:45 08:41 pace

    A couple of days off can really leave one feeling good! My hip has been tight since the 20 on Saturday, so I took a couple of days to let it settle down and am glad I did. Lovely day at the lake to... read more
