  1. RUN
    Around the lake 17.02 mi 03:02 10:42 pace

    Parked 3.5 mi away from the start of the ten-miler, to force myself to finish 17. Good thing! It was muggy and rainy and I didn't want to finish, but I had to get back to my car!

  2. RUN
    good tempo pace 10k 6.28 mi 00:58 09:15 pace

    Torrential rains last night kept me off the trails, so ran this on city streets. Without doggies, who would like to lodge a complaint.

  3. swim
    Stacy pool 1200 yd 00:22 31:42 pace

    Workout shortened because I let a Chatty Cathy get me cornered, and I ran out of time. Sigh.

      That is a tough situation - nice to get caught up, but hard to shorten a workout. You'll make it up soon.

  4. RUN
    6x800m intervals 6.09 mi 00:59 09:40 pace

    Ran at the high school track after dropping car pool girls off. The drum corps was practicing the entire time in the adjacent parking lot; I *strongly* recommend always having a drum corps at your ... read more

  5. RUN
    great Run Free Texas 80's 8K 5 mi 00:43 08:38 pace

    Fun 80's themed race up north in Cedar Park. More Cydi Laupers than David Lee Roths, thankfully, because nobody wants to stare into the spandex.

  6. RUN
    great North Austin 15.43 mi 02:38 10:13 pace

    Temps in the low 60s and cloudy skies, just spectacular running weather for a few days until Texas summer comes back. Ran with Austin Runners Club's Ship of Fools, big feast at Coach's ho... read more

      @Joe, I've got the Mount Desert Island marathon in Maine, Oct 19th, the day after I turn 50. I'm also signed up for the Austin Marathon in February, so I'll see you there!

      A mile swim is a great start to Friday! And nice when it is feeling better too.

  8. RUN
    good Tempo 5.2 mi 00:52 10:00 pace

    Still hot here in Austin, but ran my tempo run slowly but to an honest effort. Can't wait for this weekend's "cool" weather and rain!

      As everyone always tells me, tempo runs are about the effort, not pace, so an honest effort was terrific.

  9. swim
    good Big Stacy Pool 1600 yd 00:29 32:21 pace

    Been out of the water for a while, really felt it. Love this 100' spring-fed pool in South Austin!

  10. RUN
    good 4x1200 on trail 5.33 mi 00:53 09:51 pace

    Weeks of missed training took a toll, but knocked out 4 x 1200 meters with the dogs. Katie gave up and went home instead of running the cooldown with Molly and me. Poor little thing is starting to ... read more

  11. RUN
    Back in Austin 15.02 mi 02:39 10:35 pace

    Hot hot in Texas

  12. RUN
    More seaside running 3.7 mi 00:37 09:55 pace

    Around the point in Mossel Bay, South Africa

  13. RUN
    Cape Town 16.31 mi 02:51 10:28 pace

    From Camps Bay to the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, and back. Run of a lifetime.

    good Southwest Austin YMCA 2000 yd 00:40 35:11 pace

    Got out of the pool for a few weeks, and I forget how to swim!

  15. RUN
    great 1200m intervals on trail 6.42 mi 01:02 09:40 pace

    Ran with the dogs, got five 1200m intervals in. Well, one of them was 1600m and two of them were maybe 1300m. Couldn't be too exact, if you stares at your watch, you gets the Red Badge of Tra... read more

  17. walk
    blah Hobble home 3.79 mi 00:52 13:35 pace

    The walk-jog of shame. I threw the towel in on my 20-miler at 17, but I was still almost 4 miles from home. So I took it nice & easy.

    Not the 20 miles I had on the books. Once the sun came up, the run went south.
