  1. walk
    good school to home 0.53 mi 00:11:00 20:45 pace

    Tracking at least two miles today... even if walking

  2. RUN
    good Powerline to school 1.86 mi 00:24 13:00 pace

    Timed so that I could pick up the kiddo at school. Jogged up to the front of school just as the bell rang. I win today!

    I thought my momentum would be interrupted; it's been a week since I wa... read more

  3. RUN
    good powerline 2.46 mi 00:32 13:03 pace

    5 minute warmup/cooldown, ten minutes of running broken up by walks. Shins definitely felt it, but they're doing OK, just a vague quiet ache today ... hope I can keep that up without hurting t... read more

  4. RUN
    good Powerline with kiddo 2.02 mi 00:32 15:50 pace

    Took my six-year-old with me. Upped my run interval a little bit and it was mostly fine. A whole 90 seconds, whee ... a whole 8 minutes total of jogging between walks... but my ankle does have a ... read more

  5. RUN
    great Powerline 2.07 mi 00:30 14:30 pace

    Still feeling really really glad to be out!!

  6. RUN
    good Powerline 1.9 mi 00:30 15:51 pace

    I'm getting to be an expert at starting over. I had my gallbladder out and kept trying to go sooner than I should - it really did take six weeks to be able to go without hurting something insi... read more

  7. RUN
    alright Powerline 2.5 mi 00:34 13:38 pace

    5 3-minutes. Downer after hitting 5 4-minute jogs and 3+ miles two weeks ago, but not today.

  8. RUN
    blah 2 mi 00:28 14:07 pace

    4 3-minute jogs, feeling bad.

  9. I need a new playlist. Usually riverdance-type music will do it. Lord of the Dance, etc. Right now, though, I need something different. I am not in a light and happy and peppy and positive place. I... read more

      I like music like Linkin Park, Nine Inch Nails, AC/DC, Marilyn Manson, etc when I get in those kinds of moods.

      Modern Day Moses is more of a spiritual song, but one of absolute favorites, especially when thinking about running injuries as a form of bondage!
      I've thought about you the past few weeks because I think I was making progress on my own PF symptoms that I seemed to have developed trying to run in Vibram's FF's.

      I was re-reading Chi Running, and a reader testimonial was talking about a landing evenly on the heel, inner ball, and outer ball of the feet, and with a little experimentation was able to dramatically reduce the symptoms.
      Thinking about putting the details in a blog, but the book is incredible!

  10. RUN
    blah Powerline 2.76 mi 00:39 13:57 pace

    It's hot. The blackberries are ripe, but my stomach rebelled during a walk break when I tried to eat a couple. I hoped a hard run would distract from heartbreak. It didn't. Muscles don&#x... read more

  11. RUN
    blah Powerline 2.57 mi 00:37 14:22 pace

    That was hard. It's hot. And it turns out it's possible to run and sob at the same time, but not for long. I spent a lot of time taking care of my body this year ... time for it to start ... read more

  12. RUN
    good River Trail 3.14 mi 00:42 13:30 pace

    Back to 5k!! Over three miles!! That's with a lot of walking to warmup/cooldown, and I *used* to do 5k WITHOUT including the WU/CD, but I'm getting there, getting there, getting there! ... read more

  13. RUN
    good River Trail 2.94 mi 00:40 13:38 pace

    Much better. Flat trail is nice. 4:2 works, though some of them run segments get pretty tough. Guess that's how it should be, though, because it's tough-but-possible. Getting closer to a ... read more

  14. RUN
    blah Powerline 1.87 mi 00:26 13:54 pace

    That. That was a bad run.

  15. RUN
    great Powerline 2.68 mi 00:37 13:48 pace

    Got out earlier than usual; it's been warm lately (for the PNW). Glad I did, because I was crazy sweaty. 4:2 jog:walk felt awesome. Was only going to do four intervals to make sure my shins we... read more

  16. RUN
    alright Powerline 2.26 mi 00:31 13:31 pace

    Not as much fun to finish up when I couldn't quite keep up the second 3-minute jog segment (3, walk, 5, walk, 3, walk, 5, walk). Hill took it out of me this time. Managed the fives, though th... read more

  17. RUN
    great Powerline 2.5 mi 00:33 13:12 pace

    I haven't been out in almost a week -- my mother-in-law was here and we took a big trip into the mountains of Oregon. (It looks like Bend kicks Seattle-area's ass in being outdoorsy-orien... read more

    great Powerline 1.98 mi 00:27 13:28 pace

    That's week three. I remember how hard this week was the first time I did it -- 3 minutes running about a year ago -- and compare to how awesome it feels now, and I am so so so happy I have to... read more

  19. RUN
    great Powerline 1.96 mi 00:27 13:38 pace

    This one was easy! Much cooler today. Those two three-minute jogs were no big deal. I did some more rather than cooling down. I walked a longer distance at the end just to get closer to the usual 2... read more
