    good in and out of the park 4.3 mi 00:45 10:28 pace

    Different route, different shoes, and a different attitude. Much better feeling run today, but still not 100%. Good thing I have another recovery paced run tomorrow too. And also good thing I have ... read more

    alright neighborhood cul-de-sacs 12.07 mi 01:55 09:32 pace

    For once I had a crappy run. It happens. Looking forward to my massage this afternoon, which I'm long overdue for, and probably the reason why today's run felt so off. Mama said, mama sai... read more

    good 24 Hour Fitness 1632 m 01:10 69:01 pace

    First time back in the pool in three weeks, since Ragnar and travel had gotten in the way. They say it's like riding a bike, you don't forget, right? Not so. Riding a bike is like riding ... read more

  5. RUN
    great SRCP 16.21 mi 02:24 08:54 pace

    If ever there was a marathon test run, today was it. 16 mile long run, with 12 in the middle at 8:40-8:50 pace, just to get a feel for things. And I was nervous about this one. So as I was leaving ... read more

  6. RUN
    great local hills 8.51 mi 01:21 09:32 pace

    As much as I love running in new areas, there really is nowhere like home. Back in the neighborhood streets for some hilly fun early this morning, grateful that the forecasted nor'easter never... read more

  7. RUN
    great Boston Harborwalk 5.01 mi 00:51 10:15 pace

    Sightseeing recovery jog in the Waterfront area, exploring the Harborwalk. Flying back to NJ today to be with family for the upcoming holidays. Will be back in two and a half weeks for my first rac... read more

  8. RUN
    great Further along the Charles 14 mi 02:13 09:30 pace

    The one problem with unknown loop courses is that the return part of the trip might not end up being the distance you expect. But I was getting tired of out and back courses and wanted to be advent... read more

  9. RUN
    great Fenway w/Denise 6.28 mi 01:03 10:04 pace

    Met Denise on Boylston today, right at the marathon finish line, for a nice hour's recovery jog. We followed the marathon course in reverse for a while, and that was very inspiring and interes... read more

  10. RUN
    good Summit Street 12.36 mi 01:56 09:25 pace

    My assignment today was to find some hills and run them relatively hard, about a half a dozen short-ish segments, interspersed within my run. So of course I headed over to a street in Brookline cal... read more

  11. RUN
    great Boston long run 16.35 mi 02:35 09:29 pace

    Meandered all around the Charles, and got the miles done. Stopped at a DD for a restroom break and the watch reset itself, and I wasn't exactly sure what the mileage had been at that point. I ... read more

    great Along the Charles 10.4 mi 01:29 08:33 pace

    Cutdown tempo along the Charles River in Boston today, and when I set out for this run, I wasn't sure I'd find a clear stretch of uninterrupted road to run, what with traffic and all. But... read more

  13. RUN
    great Glen Rock around the block 4.04 mi 00:42 10:30 pace

    Low intensity recovery jog, before I leave for the temporary apartment for the week. No pace alarm needed today!

  14. RUN
    great Saddle Brook & Rochelle Park ... 10.23 mi 01:40 09:45 pace

    Man, that pace alarm is a real killjoy, ya know? Playing around with my new Garmin 620, I figured I'd put on the pace alarm to keep myself from going too fast, especially since I'm still ... read more

  15. RUN
    great streets into the park and back 5.58 mi 00:56 10:02 pace

    Easy post-Ragnar jog, no HRM for a change, just enjoying the movement of running and the midday sunshine. Was nice to reflect a bit on all that went on this past weekend, and how far I've come... read more

  16. RUN
    great Ragnar 2nd leg 7.67 mi 01:11 09:16 pace

    Holy hills! My second leg of Ragnar DC, and this one was also rated Very Hard. Mostly dirt roads, but luckily it had rained in the previous hours so the dust wasn't a factor. The final hill in... read more

  17. RUN
    good Ragnar 3rd leg 4.62 mi 00:41 08:55 pace

    Last leg of the Ragnar DC adventure. We were running out of time to finish the relay, so we leapfrogged a couple of the legs and doubled up the others. Ran this one with Bryan, a little faster than... read more

  18. RUN
    great Ragnar 1st leg 9.33 mi 01:19 08:28 pace

    First leg of Ragnar DC. Started so late that I had to wear the required night gear of reflective vest, headlamp and taillight. But it was barely dusk, and running in the paved paths in the park, as... read more

  19. RUN
    great north half of the park 12 mi 01:55 09:33 pace

    The loop to Ridgewood has been closed for a while now, though there's been a space in the fence at the bridge that I've seen people squeezing though quite a bit. And now with the path clo... read more

  20. RUN
    great Glen Rock to Saddle Brook 8 mi 01:08 08:28 pace

    Shorter cutdown tempo this week, and also sooner in the week, due to the Ragnar this weekend. So of course I was more stressed about hitting my paces than normal, since I had to get faster sooner i... read more
