  1. RUN
    great W5D3 - Easy 3.25 mi 00:30 09:14 pace

    Goal was to run by feel, guess Kelly & I felt good. 2nd run in new Mizunos & I'm now wondering why I ever moved away from them.
    Splits: 9:30, 9:10, 9:07 {9:02}

  2. RUN
    good W5D2 Mid/Easy 6.2 mi 01:01 09:51 pace

    Are we to week 5 already?? More discussin about what constitutes "pace" because marathon pace is naturally easy over these shorter distances. And shouldn't non-pace runs be slower by... read more

  3. VELO
    good Spin class 10.7 mi 00:34 18.9mph pace

    WEAK quads. desperately need to make this class part of my routine.

  4. RUN
    good W5D1 - Tempo 3.25 mi 00:31 09:24 pace

    Goal was 0.75 up, 0.75 down and 1.5 building from 9:00 to 8:45. Didn't stop between half mile laps, but did "lap" the garmin to keep an eye on how I was building. Easy to hold once I... read more

  5. RUN
    good W4D4 - Long 10 mi 01:45 10:32 pace

    Skipped day 3. Weird week with my share of excuses but made a date with Gretchen and Amy to ensure this got done.

  6. RUN
    good W4D2 - Pace 6 mi 00:58 09:37 pace

    Goal pace 9:40 - 9:45, which we danced around the whole time. Not sure if it was a cloud issue with the Garmin or if Kelly and I just can't hold a pace steady.

  7. RUN
    good Hills - Broad Ave 3.1 mi 00:33 10:45 pace

    0.75 warm up and cool down
    Ran up the big hill at Broad and down the little one to the right. Then up the little one and down Broad. Repeated this 5 times.

  8. RUN
    good W3D4 "Long" 6.2 mi 01:00 09:43 pace

    Kept it at a nice, comfortable pace. Watch was only to make sure I went far enough. Glad to see it was close to what Wednesday 's run should have been.

  9. RUN
    great W3D3 3.25 mi 00:31 09:26 pace

    #1000gifts - a great run so quickly on the heels of yesterday's poop-tastic run
    perfect weather, perfect easy pace, good company, and a (sorta) new route

  10. RUN
    good W3D2 5 mi 00:51 10:15 pace

    Note to self: binging on Mexican before a midweek run is a very bad idea.
    Miserable miles, but it didn't puke or poop my pants, so I'm calling it a win.

    Tried to go easy on the legs to aid in recovery from yesterday.

  14. RUN
    good Secret City 13.15 mi 02:05 09:28 pace

    Didn't really have a time goal, but wanted negative splits for the 2 loop course. Came through loop 1 around 1:03, so I definitely achieved that one. Wore my heart rate monitor, which really h... read more

    An unintentially progressive run - warm, sunny, and windy.

  17. RUN
    good Veterans to Teaster 12 mi 01:56 09:40 pace

    Didn't really pay much attention to pace for the first 10 miles. Partly because it was so cold I wanted to keep my sleeve down over my hand to keep warm.
    Decided to pick it up for the last 2 ... read more

  18. RUN
    good W1D3 - Easy 3.5 mi 00:33 09:24 pace

  19. RUN
    good W1D2 Pace 5 mi 00:49 09:42 pace

    After much discussion about what marathon pace would be, we decided to divided this up like we plan to on race day. 2@10, 1@9:45, 2@9:30 had to work on going slowly enough to hit he paces but I ver... read more
