  1. RUN
    neighborhood run 3.15 mi 00:35 11:11 pace

    Decent enough evening run through the neighborhood. The temp is 54 and I was way overdressed in a long-sleeve and vest.

    good Des Plaines River Trail half ... 13.1 mi 02:27 11:10 pace

    This was a great race! Beautiful scenery and lots of good friends. One section was flooded over, so we had to crawl over a bunch of rocks, which added a few minutes. But other than that, the tra... read more

      Nice! I "ran" through the section with the rocks later that afternoon when I went to cheer, and that would not have been fun during a race. Great overall time!

    alright neighborhood run 2.1 mi 00:25 11:44 pace

    First run back after having my wisdom teeth removed. Felt a little tight, and cut the run shorter than planned because of bathroom issues. But weather was great, and it's good to be back at ... read more

  5. RUN
    good neighborhood run 4.2 mi 00:45 10:49 pace

    My shin felt a little tight, but eventually loosened up. I wore my newer shoes, and didn't get the foot pain I felt on Saturday. Great running weather!

    good CES run + bonus mis 10.83 mi 02:02 11:14 pace

    Brr! It was actually chilly today! I did the first six miles with the CES group, then another fivish with Tim and Jenn. Didn't feel super great -- my foot hurt, and my stomach felt a little... read more

    alright neighborhood run with Tim 3.02 mi 00:32 10:38 pace

    This felt kind of tough. My shins felt super tight the whole time, and I felt more lung tired than I thought I should have felt. Humid weather. It was nice to run with Tim though.

  8. swim
    good freestyle laps 1760 yd 00:43 43:00 pace

    It feels like forever since I was training for Big Shoulders. It took a while to find my groove, but I eventually did. I thought about stopping after a half hour, but decided to finish out the mile.

  9. RUN
    good neighborhood run 4.15 mi 00:45 10:50 pace

    Not a bad run around the neighborhood. Ankles felt a little tight.

      Good job, speed champ! If I had shoved more kids out of the way in front of you, you would've made that last second for sure. :)

      Thanks all! Apparently, I got the timing just right -- 29:01. So no sub-29, but still a 16 second PR. Considering I didn't expect to PR at all, I'll take it!

    good morning bike commute 9.45 mi 00:45 12.6mph pace

      It's a bag that goes on a rack on the back of your bike. I haven't bothered putting my rack back on my bike after the Chicago tri, but I should do that.

      I've never really thought about quarter mile repeats as "lovely", but they were really satisfying. :) It was a beautiful night to be out though.

    Short run in the neighborhood with Tim. Legs finally feel loose again.

    A slow, easy swim, mostly just to loosen up my legs a little bit.
