  1. RUN
    good run with CES 10.14 mi 01:56 11:28 pace

    Man, I've missed this! I joined in with the CES 11:30 blues as a pacer on the second half of their marathon training run this morning. The group was doing sixteen miles total, but I only ran... read more

    good long swim at Ohio Street Beach 4400 yd 01:53 45:03 pace

    Another longest swim ever! I took it nice and slow, and felt like I could keep going at the end. I feel confident that I'll be able to finish Big Shoulders, even if I will be one of the last... read more

    good neighborhood run 2.1 mi 00:23 10:57 pace

    A short easy run around the neighborhood. Man, I've missed these! Perfect weather tonight. I was short on time; I would have liked to go father.

    Tonight's workout was half laps around the track fast, with half lap jogging recoveries. I did 16 repeats of this, plus a half mile warm up.

    Most of my 100s took about 1:10 to 1:15, and my r... read more

    good Blue Dolphins class 2000 yd 00:50 43:59 pace

    I was tired from the tri yesterday, but I didn't want to miss our last swim class at the lake. So glad I went. Everyone else who went was tired from the tri as well, so it felt low pressure.... read more

  6. RUN
    good Chicago Triathlon run 10 km 01:12 11:33 pace

    This was my redemption run. When I did the Chicago Tri in 2012, I had a terrible time of it. So today my goal was just to keep my run pace around my long run pace, to walk at all the aid stations... read more

      Awesome PR. Proud of you smashing it in a number of different ways. Did you know that I'm re-retired from tris, though? :)

    good Chicago Triathlon bike 40 km 01:37 15.4mph pace

    Interesting new bike course. Going on Lower Wacker and on the busways was pretty surreal. The bike started out super speedy with a strong wind coming from the south. Turning around, I really fel... read more

    I'm really happy with my swim today! This was a swim leg PR by about six and a half minutes. The water started out fairly calm, but became pretty choppy in the second half. Fortunately, the... read more

    alright bike to transition 10 mi 00:47 12.8mph pace

    A wind-blasted ride to rack our bikes for the Chicago Tri.

    The group was doing 20 quarter mile repeats tonight. I didn't think I'd do all of them, but I didn't expect to tank so hard and so fast.

    Ray had us skip the warm-up, and go rig... read more

      At first glance I thought you had 20 mile repeats! That is a lot of speedwork for anytime, let alone race week. Plus heat and humidity. Nice job getting 12 of those in! As they say, the hay is in the barn.

    alright North Branch Trail 20.08 mi 01:30 13.5mph pace

    Not a bad ride, but I was feeling tired and my stomach felt a little upset. Can't believe the Chicago Tri is next weekend!

    good lakefront run 6 mi 01:06 11:04 pace

    Not a bad run on the lakefront trail this morning! I never get tired of the view of that lake. I still feel out of shape, but it went a lot better than my last few weekend runs. I'm looking... read more
