  1. RUN
    3.79 mi

    Warm-up & cool-down jog back and forth from the Y. It's so close that I feel like such a jerk driving there.

  2. RUN
    great Recovery run/dog jog 6 mi 00:59 09:50 pace

    Ran the first 3 miles in my own. Then came back home, picked up the dog, and brought her out with me for 3 more. We haven't run much together during the summer, so I think she got out of shape... read more

  3. RUN
    Reach the Peaks trail "run" 11 mi 02:31 13:43 pace

    This was a hiking (and ostensibly running) event--not a race--at Hanging Rock State Park. Only kinda sorta timed. There were 5 checkpoints, one at each of the five peaks in the park. Other than tha... read more

  4. RUN
    speedwork 3 mi 00:23 07:37 pace

    Not gonna lie: I didn't do all 8 800s that I was supposed to do. I just had no juice and I thought it would be better to do 6 good 800s rather than a few sloppy ones.

  5. RUN
    1 mi

    warmup & cooldown

  6. RUN
    dog jog 4 mi

    I was feeling awful all day long (allergies?) and was about to blow off a workout for the first time since I started my 50k training over a month ago. But the dog just looked so bored this evening ... read more

  7. RUN
    Sauratown Trail sections 11-4... 21 mi 05:12 14:51 pace

    Yep. That is a slow pace. Yep. I'm ok with that. My last long, long run before my 50k in three weeks. Let the taper begin!
    The temperature jumped 30 degrees over the course of my run and I ac... read more

  8. RUN
    7.46 mi 01:16 10:11 pace

    UGH. There were definitely some good moments in this run, but mostly it felt awful. My quads are sore (from yoga? from speedwork?) and I couldn't seem to catch my breath at all. Hmph. Slightly... read more

  9. RUN
    speedwork 10 x 400 2.52 mi 00:19 07:29 pace

    It's been forever since I did proper speedwork. Now I remember why I simultaneously dread it, yet love the feeling of accomplishment after.
    Splits were all around 1:52

  10. RUN
    2 mi

    Dreadmill warmup before weights and the MYRTL routine. Let me tell you, that Myrtl is a bitch.

  11. I am just four weeks out from the Pilot Mountain to Hanging Rock 50k. I have been following my training plan to the letter. There have been times when I had to cut the midweek run a little short, b... read more

  12. VELO
    two laps of Salem Lake 14 mi 01:10 12.0mph pace

    Ooof. I forgot riding a bike is harder than it looks.
    This was the longest ride I had taken in a long time and it was on my heavier cruiser/commuter bike. I was seriously pooped at the end.

  13. RUN
    Corridor Trail 13.2 mi 02:46 12:34 pace

    This felt ok. I had hoped to do this a little faster, given the cooler temps, but that just wasn't happening.
    But thank jeebus for step-down weeks. There is no way I could have run any longer ... read more

  14. RUN
    Corridor Trail 9 mi 01:57 13:00 pace

    Great run this morning on the Corridor Trail at Pilot Mountain with Hillary! It is rare that she and I are free at the same time, so we took the opportunity to run a little longer than usual for a ... read more

  15. RUN
    The Hills at Mom's 4.25 mi 00:43 10:13 pace

    Much cooler today, but still humid. I still find it tough to push myself up and over these hills.

  16. RUN
    Hanging Rock State Park 19.5 mi 04:47 14:43 pace

    This would have been sooooo much better had it not been sooooo humid today. It wasn't even all that hot! This already difficult section of my 50k course was just made so much worse by having t... read more
