  1. RUN
    alright KM 14, 7 mile loop 6.91 mi 01:03 09:06 pace

    First real run back into regular training. I've got a race to focus on (December 7, a half marathon in Santa Cruz), and am about to start harassing my wife about the Bryce or Zion 100s for ne... read more

      Nice pace, Jay! Can't miss in term of view with either canyon.

  2. RUN
    good Santa Cruz Ninos de la Calle ... 6.21 mi 00:41 06:39 pace

    Very pleased with this race. Will write an extensive blog post on it, but I took 5 minutes 8 seconds out of my last 10k (and now have a worthy PR to chase in future races)...

  3. RUN
    good Camiri Highway. 9.84 mi 01:17 07:48 pace

    Decent run today. 5x1 mile (or 6:30 whichever came first). Did this to estimate pacing for the race on Sunday. Assuming "human" traffic doesn't interfere, I'll run the first ... read more

      The question is how many times did 1 come before 6:30 ... :).... Nice run

  4. Just did a bit of research and discovered that my "Adult" 10k PR is 46:31. Supposing I race on Sunday, even if I just go at a hard training pace that number will go down. If I can race,... read more

      How do you define "Adult"? Over 18? Good luck dropping the PR!

      Is adult defined by age or attitude?

      Good question Brandon. I'm certainly more "adult" in attitude than I was when I was 28, but that probably has to do more with credit card debt and having successfully passed on a portion of my genetic material...

  5. RUN
    good KM 14, 7 mile loop 6.91 mi 01:03 09:10 pace

    Achilles is seems to have accepted yesterdays tough return to activity. Hopefully I wake up tomorrow feeling similar. Used the rolling pin the minute I walked into the house post run...

  6. RUN
    good Km 14, 4 mile loop 4.06 mi 00:28 06:50 pace

    First run in 11 days. Achilles felt good. Been using a rolling pin to loosen up my calf muscles and it seems to be really helping.
    I went fast this morning to see how I feel tomorrow. May throw ... read more

  7. I've taken several days off thanks to a really grumpy Achilles. It's coming around and I think tomorrow I'll test it out with a short and easy 4 miler. If that goes well, I'll ... read more

  8. RUN
    alright Santa Cruz Club Willys 12.15 mi 01:54 09:21 pace

    This run was supposed to be 2.5 hours, but I ran out of road. I guess that's a good thing because that's 20% less stress on my achilles, but it didn't really bother me while running... read more

  9. Took yesterday and today off thanks to a resurgence of achilles tendonitis in my left leg. I've been wearing my old Doc Martin shoes to take the strain off while I'm not running. It... read more

      I've been sucking down ibuprofen for my knee the past few days with all the crawling around from liquid painting. Pain came right back when I was weeding. Nothing major, just annoying.

    Completely uninspired to get out today, but convinced myself that: You've skipped scheduled workout #6 every week for the last 4 weeks - Don't Do It Again!...

  13. RUN
    good Camiri Hwy. 20.03 mi 02:44 08:12 pace

    Kept a measured pace - heart rate zone 2 throughout - until the last 2 miles that is. I told my wife I'd be home in 2 hours 45 minutes, and I felt really good at the end of my run, but was ru... read more

      I miss this kinda stuff when painting with solids. I love that pace for 20 in training, especially zone 2. Freakin' sweet!

      Thanks man, I've been really adhering to HR guidelines in my training runs and am stoked by the progress I've been making...
      This kind of effort has me thinking that a sub-3 hour marathon might be something I should focus a 6 month training cycle on...
