  1. RUN
    good W16D3 - Treadmill 4 mi 00:40 09:58 pace

    "Chomp" by Carl Hiassen, read by James Van Der Beek. Hiassen is crude in his regular novels, but fixes that by having the character say "bleepin" when he wants to swear to avoid... read more

  2. RUN
    great W16D2 4 mi 00:39 09:38 pace

    blah W15D4 - LongRun 20 mi 03:33 10:39 pace

    Felt okay this run (the group was a bit faster than me but I managed) until mile 12ish. I had a clumpy gu and from then on out my tummy felt awful. Going fast(er) just made me want to hurl. Pleased... read more

  8. RUN
    good W14D4 - Shot week 12 mi 02:15 11:15 pace

    this one was the worst run I've had since the last time I got my allergy shot. During that run a few weeks ago I had no clue why it sucked. Now I'm guessing I know why. Thankfully I alrea... read more

      those things are terrible, my wife had to stop taking them because the symptoms were worse than the allergies.

  9. RUN
    good Treadmill 6 mi 00:58 09:41 pace

    Listened to the entire short story "Pros & Con's" by Janet Evanovich and Lee Somebody. I like the O'Hare & Fox series so the story was familiar and fun. Played with the ... read more

  10. RUN
    great Treadmill 6 mi 01:00 10:00 pace

    Took a long lunch to ensure that I got this in before the community center closed. Turns out work is closing 3 hours before the CC. Oh well its done! Never been so happy to be on a mill. Listened t... read more

  11. VELO
    good Home bike 7.8 mi 00:45 10.4mph pace

    Hit the outdoor patio, watched Ironman on the big screen, and enjoyed the ride. It's an old-school bike probably works my muscles more than my cardio, but it was better than nothing. Gym close... read more

  12. Community Center closed, so the treadmill isn't an option. Sidewalks/roads are iced over. I suppose I'll have to brave the cold and do the exercise bike on the back porch. Any Netflix/You... read more

  13. walk
    good Gatlinburg Trail 6 mi 02:00 20:00 pace

    Most of the National Park was closed due to "pending inclement weather" but we wanted to get out and about. Ended up just seeing a bit of sleet.

  15. RUN
    good W13D2 - Pace(ish) 5 mi 00:49 09:47 pace

    Felt great compared to last weeks mid. So odd to only have a handful of training runs over the standard lunch 4 left.

  18. RUN
    good Strawberry Plains Half Marathon 13.19 mi 02:12 10:00 pace

    Felt strong starting off, but have had allergy/breathing issues all week and that started to come into play around the 4ish mile marker. Add that to my lack of hill conditioning and I certainly was... read more

  19. RUN
    W12D3 - Easy 4 mi 00:39 09:45 pace

    Ran with Kelly & Lynnette. I don't think I've ran with L before, it was nice to have her along for the chat! :)

  20. RUN
    blah W12D2 - Pace 8 mi 01:17 09:36 pace
