  1. RUN
    great Ridgewood hills 11.01 mi 01:46 09:37 pace

    It had come to my attention (thank you Coach Caolan M.) that I've been running all my runs too fast (and thus too hard) lately. So I really made the effort to Slow.It.Down. today. Picked a hil... read more

  2. RUN
    great 5.7 mi

    I've really been feeling bound by the numbers lately, so today I left the watch home. Ran as easy as felt I wanted to, throwing in some occasional pickups; some faster and some not as fast. Pi... read more

  3. RUN
    great Glen Rock to Rochelle Park, p... 12 mi 01:54 09:29 pace

    After a lousy night's sleep, I really had no expectations for today's medium long run. But I ended up feeling surprisingly good, and the company in the park today was definitely a major c... read more

    great 24 Hour Fitness 1632 m 01:00 59:10 pace

    Excellent early morning swim, still managing one mile in about one hour, so I'm happy. Thought about how when we move to the temporary housing in downtown Boston, the pool in that building is ... read more

  5. RUN
    great full park (except Ridgewood) 16.22 mi 02:35 09:32 pace

    After yesterday's stressavaganza over my tempo run, I figured there was no way I was going to worry about today's long run, even with the fact that a major section of the park was closed ... read more

  6. RUN
    great Glen Rock to Rochelle Park loop 10 mi 01:26 08:33 pace

    DM asks "How did it go?" In my case, DM should ask "How did you expect it to go??" I really thought today's cutdown tempo was going to be a bust, especially since last week... read more

  7. RUN
    good Glen Rock and bus stop loops 5.01 mi 00:49 09:44 pace

    Didn't get out until the afternoon, so I'll take that as half a rest day. Easy paced run with some faster bits thrown in. Legs felt sluggish but it's been a tough couple days in term... read more

  8. RUN
    great Along the Charles 9 mi 01:26 09:33 pace

    The whole world runs in this town! Another beautiful early morning run along the Charles River, as we're back here again scoping out possible living accommodations come this fall.

  9. RUN
    great random cul-de-sacs 5.54 mi 00:56 10:04 pace

    Early morning fartlek run, random local route, before our most recent look-see trip to Boston.

  10. RUN
    great ESR to WSR Roads 12 mi 01:56 09:39 pace

    I'm really getting to like this route, through the scenic and varied terrain of the local streets up to Saddle River and back. Started out with the group, then split apart for the second half,... read more

    great 24 Hour Fitness 1632 m 01:00 59:10 pace

    Nothing like taking advantage of a bout of insomnia to get an early morning swim in.... Usually I can't swim on Saturdays because the kids club is there all day. Well technically not ALL day, ... read more

  12. RUN
    great full park (except Glen Rock) 15.21 mi 02:26 09:37 pace

    Solo long run in the park, and I think it was exactly what I needed today. Wasn't anything epic, just a decent amount of easy-effort miles on a beautiful morning. Kept flirting with being bore... read more

  13. RUN
    great Glen Rock to Rochelle Park 10 mi 01:27 08:40 pace

    I loved my tempo run today! It was a cutdown run, which meant after a mile easy but progressive warmup, every two miles was faster than the last. The easy cooldown mile seemed to come too soon, tha... read more

  14. RUN
    great home to park 5 mi 00:48 09:39 pace

    Easy fartlek today; just me, my thoughts and the humidity. No HRM, and for a moment there thought about ditching the watch too, but I had already left the house... Perfect run for my head, exactly ... read more

  15. RUN
    great streets and park 10.65 mi 01:40 09:25 pace

    When I left the house to run this morning, I really had no idea where I was going to run. Ended up stringing together a couple favorite streets for a nice and varied terrain medium long run. Took t... read more

  16. swim
    good 24 Hour Fitness 1632 m 01:00 59:10 pace

    Crowded at the pool today, the first time I had to wait to get into a lane. Still got my hour or so in, working on being relaxed and not moving my body too fast. Why is so hard to work easy?? ;)

  17. RUN
    great Ridgewood hills 14.2 mi 02:16 09:35 pace

    Yet another stop on the farewell tour: Dominique's favorite hilly route through Ridgewood, supposedly done in reverse, but since I had never done it, it was all new to me. Good thing I love hi... read more

  18. RUN
    great Ridgewood to Red Mill 8 mi 01:09 08:36 pace

    GPS was obviously broken today. Kept reining it back in my tempo miles, yet the Garmin kept saying I was going faster. Whatever, felt like HM pace which is what my target was (more or less), so I w... read more

  19. RUN
    alright home to Rochelle Park 11.3 mi 01:48 09:31 pace

    Payback for all the recent runs where I've said I was feeling "too good".... eh, it was late in the morning and hot, my sleep the night before was wretched, didn't like my shoes... read more

      I don't look at it as payback as much as part of the cycle. Ha don't beat up everything else too much. It's done. Next run will be awesome!

  20. RUN
    great Southern Drive loop 5.5 mi 00:55 10:00 pace

    Easy paced run with some faster pickups thrown in whenever I felt like it. Ran a route through town that I could've sworn was nice and shady, but proved to be otherwise. Then I remembered that... read more
