  1. RUN
    great Glen Rock loop, extended 4.1 mi 00:49 12:01 pace

    Nice and easy recovery run, on a beautiful brisk morning. HRM flipped out on me in the first mile, giving me numbers saying I was PR'ing in a 5k. Ha, good thing I'm not that dependent on ... read more

  2. RUN
    great Saddle Brook loop 5.26 mi 00:55 10:22 pace

    Easy fartlek today, and for once I think I finally got it right. Ran the tenth-mile markers in the park, and I wouldn't start my next pick-up until my HR had gone back down to my recovery-pace... read more

  3. RUN
    good home to park and back 8.1 mi 01:18 09:40 pace

    I ran today's miles in honor of the victims of Boston Marathon bombings, which was a year ago today. I don't have a Boston shirt, but I do have last year's Superhero Half shirt that ... read more

    alright 24 Hour Fitness 1000 yd 00:45 79:11 pace

    Squeezed in a late afternoon swim amidst baking and other holiday prep. Was rushing so much, though, that I swam too fast and had trouble catching my breath a little too often. I really have to wor... read more

  5. VELO
    good stationary bike 14.5 mi 01:06 13.2mph pace

    Lots to do today, last minute holiday prep. Still had time for an hour's worth of sweat on the bike though. Onward!

  6. RUN
    great Rochelle Park loop 8.04 mi 01:22 10:14 pace

    Easy aerobic run with 8x 30-second strides with equal recoveries embedded. Split the strides two sets, with a little over a mile in between. The speed felt great. The slow and easy parts, before, b... read more

  7. walk
    great Broadway and back 5 mi 01:20 16:00 pace

    Lovely day for a walk! Just me and my thoughts, the warm sunshine, the birds... perfect!

  8. RUN
    great up and down Jacquelin 14.2 mi 02:25 10:11 pace

    I've often wondered what the hill on Jacquelin in Ho-Ho-Kus would feel like coming down, so today I ran up to the top (I think it's Chestnut Ridge Rd in Saddle River by that point) and th... read more

  9. RUN
    great Glen Rock to Saddle Brook 7.05 mi 01:05 09:10 pace

    Weekly tempo run, and it was a chatty one at that. Karina and I had to monitor the pace so that we wouldn't get carried away... The company and the weather was just too good, it was hard to ho... read more

  10. RUN
    great Glen Rock to Ridgewood 5.01 mi 01:00 12:04 pace

    Was serenaded by the birds this morning on my recovery run, and once again I wished I knew how to identify them by their sounds. The resident woodpecker of the park also lent its voice to the cacop... read more

  11. RUN
    great home to park and back 10.09 mi 01:37 09:36 pace

    I must've been very excited to get out of the house to run today, because I forgot to put on my Road ID. Don't think that's ever happened before... 52°F and barely raining, if at all... read more

  12. swim
    great 24 Hour Fitness 1050 yd 00:45 75:25 pace

    Something clicked with my stroke today, in the last ten minutes of my time in the pool, after noticing another swimmer's arms who had just entered my lane. I have no clue what he was doing dif... read more

  13. VELO
    good stationary bike 15.5 mi 01:06 14.1mph pace

    Starting the week off with some moderate cross-training. Happy Monday, everyone!

  14. RUN
    great Ridgewood, Glen Rock, etc. 10.5 mi 01:50 10:29 pace

    What a glorious day to be outdoors today! I actually didn't want to go home from the park once I was done with my run; watching all the people running, walking, cycling (and even hugging) alon... read more

  15. walk
    great Costco, ShopRite and the mall 2.08 mi

    I've often wondered exactly how far I walk when I go to Costco and my other shopping adventures. So today I wore my Garmin... Also went to ShopRite and the mall, and on a Saturday no less, to ... read more

  16. RUN
    good Saddle River County Park 16.11 mi 03:05 11:29 pace

    It was a long slow run in the park by myself today. The biggest excitement was when I didn't notice a crack in the pavement and tripped, went flying with arms waving, and managed to catch my b... read more

  17. RUN
    great Glen Rock to Saddle Brook 8.01 mi 01:14 09:17 pace

    Tempo run today, and probably the easiest feeling one I've ever done. I'll attribute that in part to the gorgeous weather, and in part to running into friends and sharing some miles with ... read more

  18. RUN
    good Saddle Brook loop 5.3 mi 01:05 12:20 pace

    I've been running and training for a while now, but I swear, with every day (and every run), I understand more and more of what my coach is trying to tell/teach me. For instance, the recovery ... read more

    good all around town 10.02 mi 01:39 09:52 pace

    Started my route with an errand across town, in a rather hilly neighborhood. What goes up, must come down, right? Well no matter where I went, it was all uphill today. Like running in an Escher pai... read more

  20. swim
    good 24 Hour Fitness 1800 yd 01:00 58:39 pace

    Three hair ties today = 4 laps freestyle, 1 lap backstroke. Seven sets (I think??), plus one more lap for good luck. Had to change lanes in the midst because the guy who I was sharing with was swim... read more
