  1. swim
    blah laps at EAC 880 yd 00:23 46:00 pace

    I always say that swimming is the magical cure for any ache or pain. Today I learned that that does NOT apply to sinus headaches. Ouch. At least my hip felt good while swimming.

    good trainer ride 8.4 mi 00:43 11.7mph pace

    I fiddled with the resistance knob on the trainer, and resulted in a dramatically different speed. So maybe I should stop logging distance for trainer rides. But I'll leave this here for now... read more

  3. RUN
    tired CES run 6.93 mi 01:25 12:18 pace

    Not a good run for me today. I ran the first half with my group, but I hung back during the second half. Always a terrible feeling as a pacer. I ran/walked most of the way back with another wom... read more

      Can't beat yourself up! As pacers we are still human and I think it is good for our groups to see when we DON'T necessarily have a good run.

      Hope your next run is better!

      I agree with Whitney. I've never been a pacer, but I appreciate it when our coaches and pacers aren't afraid to let it show when they're having an off day. It happens to us all - just like those really good days do. Hope you feel better soon!

      Thanks Patty. Everyone in my group was super nice about it, but I still felt bad. Rationally, I know it's all right, but it's hard to shake that feeling. Even though I know I've lost some fitness, I also know that the cold I have has been aggravating my asthma and that was a major cause. Hopefully, some rests helps and next time I'll bring along my inhaler.

  4. VELO
    bike trainer 9.5 mi 00:25 22.8mph pace

    Hmm, I wonder if I should keep logging mileage for the bike trainer. I was hoping having a bike computer would give me a way to compare my workouts against each other, but this is pretty ridiculou... read more

  5. RUN
    good short neighborhood run 1.3 mi 00:14:30 11:09 pace

    Short run around the neighborhood, just to keep the holiday streak going.

  6. RUN
    good neighborhood run 3.1 mi 00:35 11:08 pace

    Still getting used to the Brooks, and still dealing with the nagging foot issue. But other than that, not a bad run.

  7. RUN
    good neighborhood run 3.2 mi 00:37 11:27 pace

    Rainy run through the neighborhood. Tried out some Brooks. They felt a little stiff, but probably just because they're new. I'll give them another go for sure.

  8. swim
    good Sunday swim 1320 yd 00:33 44:00 pace

    Freestyle laps.

  9. RUN
    alright CES run 5 mi 00:57 11:23 pace

    Pacing with CES winter warriors. Foot still gave me trouble, and this pace is definitely more challenging for me than it's been in seasons past. We did come in a little fast, though. It... read more

  10. RUN
    good neighborhood run 2 mi 00:23 11:37 pace

    Great running weather tonight. I wore my old old shoes, which felt better than either of the new pairs I've been trying. Still feeling that pain in my left foot, and this reminds me that Ath... read more

  11. RUN
    alright short neighborhood run 2.1 mi 00:24 11:25 pace

    Foot still wonky. I tried a different pair of shoes (New Balance). Much better than the Sauconies, but still not the same as my really old worn out ones.

  12. VELO
    good trainer ride 14.5 mi 00:45 19.3mph pace

    Rode the bike trainer in my living room again. Not sure why the speed is so fast, I know I would not have been able to do that in real life. Foot still bothering me, but this felt fine.

  13. swim
    good EAC freestyle laps 1760 yd 00:45 45:00 pace

    Felt good to do a workout without my foot hurting. I'll try running again in different shoes now that I'm back home. But it always feels good to swim.

  14. RUN
    good Dearborn run with Tim 1.4 mi 00:16 11:11 pace

    Short run in my parents' neighborhood. Foot still hurts, but felt better than yesterday.

  15. RUN
    injured Detroit Turkey Trot 6.2 mi 01:11 11:31 pace

    This wasn't the run I would have liked, but I still enjoyed myself.

    The side of my foot hurt quite a bit, so I did a lot of walking. I also started out too fast for the first half mile or... read more
