  1. RUN
    alright Short of breath 3.63 mi 00:36 09:50 pace

    Had a hard time catching my breath throughout this run. Hope I'm not getting sick.

      Ah, it's probably just the pollen/spring crap in the air messing up your lungs.

    alright Old man shuffle 2.16 mi 00:22 10:20 pace

    Sore and stiff, but back at it with a shorty and more yardwork the rest of the day.

  3. RUN
    good Here it is, BAM! 4.6 mi 00:44 09:38 pace

    Did a run to Stanbridge St Park with my man Chuck D, followed by 5 hours of yardwork. Rewarding myself with several Shock Top Twisted Pretzel Wheat.

      mmmmm. That is a great run, and yardwork is no joke. It's that time again. I "meant" to have a beer after my 20-miler yesterday, but I forgot! D'oh!!!!

    good Draggin' the line. 3.01 mi 00:28 09:23 pace

    Gorgeous day to go running with Tommy James and his boys.

  6. RUN
    alright Please come back, Mr. Sun. 3 mi 00:30 09:59 pace

    The sun has only been hiding for one day, and I miss it. Come on sunshine and 90 degrees! Tough slow run. Still very stiff and tired from an arduous weekend.

    good More sun, please. 4.02 mi 00:39 09:47 pace

    A little cooler than I expected, but great rays from that giant yellow orb in the sky. Going to be sore after running and two days of yardwork. May need Monday off.

      Yardwork sure uses different muscles than running. Sounds like you're off to a great start with your yard.

  8. RUN
    good Devlied eggs. 2.98 mi 00:29 09:46 pace

    Quite windy run today, though the sun felt nice and warm. On a side note, perhaps the post-run lunch with deviled eggs was not the best idea I've ever had.

  9. RUN
    good 4 at lunch 4 mi 00:41 10:09 pace

    Tired, but glad it's warm. For April, the air was pretty thick, which I'll take every day over frosty air!

  10. RUN
    good First day of shorts! 3.5 mi 00:36 10:10 pace

    Loved the sun and finally warm-ish temps this evening. Hoping the temps stay warm and rain holds off enough over the next few days to get in some more miles.

      Wow, I haven't seen you post lately...however, I have been a slacker about reading, so maybe it's just me?

      Garmin - you can set the field to lap pace rather than immediate pace. The numbers will jump around much less.

      I have read and tried heel-walking for shin splints. I never had a problem until recently, so heel walking is new to me, but seems to help (and hurt at first.)

      Rest is the only thing that has ever helped shin splints for me. Then do calf raises religiously before and after you run to strengthen them.

    good Some one and ones 3.8 mi 00:34 09:04 pace

    Did some intervals after a 10 minute warmup. Felt nice to get the legs moving a little faster than I have of late. Gorgeous day. Would have liked to run longer in this weather.
