  1. RUN
    good Trail Run 4 mi

    Ran on a grass trail in the woods with Pacers and it was gorgeous out. We had a big group, and the number is growing after the 5K Saturday. A few people commented that it was their first 5K ever an... read more

    alright Pacers Homecoming 5K 3.1 mi 00:22 07:09 pace

    8am - kicked off Homecoming with the 5K this morning. I did alright. Leah and I were both about a minute slower than last week. Running on grass versus pavement slowed us down and it was slick and... read more

  3. RUN
    alright Pacers 4.2 mi

    Ate a granola bar half an hour before running so my left side wasn't very good. So that was a mistake, but I can control that better next time. We ran the 5K course to see how it would be for ... read more

  4. RUN
    good 3 mi 00:22 07:26 pace

    3 on my own while watching tutorials for class trying to kill two birds with one stone. What a week. But running this feels so much easier than it used to, the transformation amazes me.

  5. RUN
    good John Deere 5K 3.1 mi 00:21 06:47 pace

    1pm - John Deere 5K at Tractor Cab in Waterloo. This was a big step for me. First 5K since last July, but I'm pretty pleased with how I did I think. I thought I was a lot slower because there ... read more

  7. RUN
    alright Treadmill 3.1 mi 00:22 07:00 pace

    Did a tempo-ish 5k on the treadmill to see where I'm at for the race Sunday. May or may not get to run it now, but family comes first. Miles were 7:37, 7:03, 6:20ish. My legs felt like they we... read more

      Wow! You are in great shape. I've realized that I can get into shape on a lot less mileage than I thought I needed. I think this lower miles plan might work for us to keep us fast but injuries at bay.

      I agree - I think I require lower mileage for sure, and thank you.

    I don't know the last time I finished this distance and felt like running farther. It simply leaves me smiling. Running with those slower than my pace was probably a factor, but two good "... read more
