  1. RUN
    good Around 2.5 mi

    Light run, gotta be careful. Focused more on the stretching after. I saw Kenny! Hip was just okay. It'd be awesome to PR from when I last ran Bix healthy 5 years ago, but I think I'm goin... read more

  2. RUN
    good Bix Hills 5 mi 00:43 08:35 pace

    River path and hills with Wheels. I felt okay today. Not as much pep and McClellan kinda killed me. But it was humid. Hip felt fine, better than yesterday for sure. Core and stretch after. Off to M... read more

      Of course! I am excited for you too... so much! You seemed a little better today than Monday, and I think by Saturday you'll be there. And if not, it is what it is and you know what to do - remember not up to you :-)

  4. RUN
    good staycation 6 mi

    Always a great day when I get to run with Wheels. 6 mi run with 2 at tempo. Legs felt good which was much appreciated after my runs the past week. The dew point was under 70 and humidity not as hig... read more

    blah River's Edge 10k 7.5 mi

    Well.... The first 5k was good, second half was sucky. They mis-measured the course by accident so we actually ran over a 10k at 6.36 mi... 90% HUMIDITY so have to put things in perspective. but no... read more

  6. RUN
    good Pre 6am 3.03 mi 00:25 08:19 pace

    Very easy 3 before work. 72 degrees vs 90s, couldn't get away with not sweating though at 94% humidity. I'm sure it'll be similar tomorrow morning for the 10k. Glad it starts at 6:30.

  7. RUN
    good #Sweat 4.14 mi

    6pm - Heat index was like 105 but we braved it. Warmed up then 6x400 (88, 80, 78, 81, 79, 77) on the trails. Hard, but not terrible. Legs felt better each rep. Massage helped significantly. The gro... read more

  8. RUN
    blah Dripping 3.43 mi 00:27 07:46 pace

    Short run after PT. Crummy. Legs were awful from the start. Felt like 97 with the heat index, very humid and hot. Workout tomorrow at club I believe then Friday I might run in the morning with the ... read more

    4pm - Shorter wo: 1600 @ 6:22, 800 ~3:10, 4x400 @ idk (dead watch), wu/cool down. Still felt hard with the humidity. Got to the track right as Jaden Merrick (8-year old with the youth 1/2 world rec... read more

  10. RUN
    alright Hot 4.3 mi 00:34 07:52 pace

    Went out to xtrain but realized a few miles in that my back tire was low, so biked back and just decided to run.... Legs felt like lead. Lots of people on the trails despite the heat.

  11. RUN
    alright 6.03 mi 00:47 07:44 pace

    7:45pm - Super muggy. Not sure what's up with my legs, I have energy to run a long time, but my legs/hip get so tired after 3 miles... Makes the second half of these mid-distance runs tough. M... read more

      I was going to run last night up here but bailed due to the humidity. Great job getting out there and pushing through it.

    alright Tempo 5.04 mi 00:38 07:33 pace

    1 mi warm up then right into 2 mile tempo (6:47, 6:36) and 2 mi cool down. I'm ready for more than one workout a week so trying to ease my way into it. I didn't feel great and it was humi... read more

    6x800 repeats at interval pace with 3 min recovery between each (3:18, 3:11, 3:14, 3:12, 3:10, 2:53). Warmup/cool down. We pushed the last quarter on the 6th one. Ate too much beforehand so didn&#x... read more

  14. RUN
    alright 4.6 mi 00:35 07:31 pace

    My roommate dropped me off from Family Video and I ran the trails back to our place. Legs felt like bricks and it was hilly. Some work/run club people asked me if I would run the QC Marathon Relay.... read more

      the relay is fun. try to not get the arsenal leg. No spectators on there. It was the worst part of the marathon route for me. Just my two cents.

      Oh thanks, I'll make sure I don't get that one. They have to at least block off the road going across, running on the side is freaky.

    good Running nerds 5.14 mi 00:41 07:56 pace

    5pm - Ran from Pfeiffer with Brandon on the trails. I was glad we chose a heavily shaded route because it felt like 99 with the heat index. :P Always fun to talk training & races since he used ... read more
