  1. RUN
    good Here and there 4 mi 00:36 09:00 pace

    It was rainy pretty steadily when my alarm went off, so I opted for more sleep (good to have after staying up late to watch the end of the Royals game - that was a fun one!). Ran a mile or so durin... read more

  2. FIT
    good Strength training with Whitney 00:30

    All upper-body work. No need for legs this week!

  3. VELO
    good Ryde Barre 17.6 mi 00:50 21.1mph pace

    Heart rate was higher than normal today - maybe a sign my body is still recovering from the race? Good, tough workout. Average RPM: 85. Average HR: 147.

  4. RUN
    good Recovery run 4 mi 00:38 09:34 pace

    Easy miles under a clear, starry sky. Calves are sore, otherwise feel good. Splits: 10:06, 9:28, 9:21, 9:19.

  5. swim
    good Recovery swim 1800 yd 00:46 44:58 pace

    Good pool time except for the weird pain in my upper back - pinched nerve, who knows? It's bearable but annoying. Calves are tight today, otherwise things feel good.

    good Recovery miles 3 mi 00:45 15:00 pace

    All systems OK after race day, except for a tight spot in my back that I think is from sleeping weird rather than running. Go figure. :)

    great KC Half Marathon 13.1 mi 01:39 07:33 pace

    Great day to run, super happy with my race! I knew it would be a good morning when my training partner Jennifer and I happened upon some fancy-shmancy porta-potties (that have real toilets that &qu... read more

  8. swim
    good Genesis North 1800 yd 00:46 44:58 pace

    Pool time to loosen up the legs. I've had some tightness in my lower back on the left side, and interestingly enough the swimming seemed to worsen that. So ... I hope I didn't create any ... read more

      Hopefully just a minor complaint that a good nights sleep will cure. Good luck tomorrow, it looks like a perfect day.

      You may have to walk around the room yelling instructions by the end of the week to get a taper in... Today was still a speedy workout.

    alright Ryde Barre 17.8 mi 00:50 21.4mph pace

    Kept the resistance and effort lower during Marci's class, and my heart rate did the same. Dark, rainy Monday morning ... but good to start the week with some sweat. Average RPM: 83. Average H... read more

    good 3 mi 00:45 15:00 pace

    Another sleep-in Sunday - more than eight hours of good sleep, and I needed it. Nice easy walk. Had hoped for a swim, but all the lanes were booked this morning at the gym. Thinking of all the folk... read more

    great Close encounters 8 mi 01:07 08:22 pace

    Starting at 5 a.m. on Saturday means quiet roads - and encounters with critters in the dark. Grateful to make it home without incident. During mile 2, saw something crawling around near a bus stop ... read more

      I had very similar experiences dark and early this morning! I didn't see the skunk but sure smelled it. And then had my far-too-often encounter with the coyote that I always see. You got me on the owl though. :-) Strong run!! Looking great for the Half. Hope your daughter's meet goes well.

      Susie, since you'll be done with your half in little over an hour, you could come back out and help pace me to the finish of the full. It would be a jog pace for you. :-)

      @Bill - that's funny! Luckily you will be in good hands with the pacers. I do plan to stay to see my friend Jennifer finish, so here's hoping I see you too.
