  1. RUN
    alright Not a Soaker 4.01 mi 00:35 08:46 pace

    Well, a few rain drops but not much, thankfully. Heavy wind though. The difference between miles 2 and 3 (into the wind vs. with) was 86 seconds with about the same energy output. Slow anyway, but ... read more

  2. RUN
    alright Tsunami saturday 4 mi 00:36 09:00 pace

    Got out before breakfast today. We've had record rainfall recently and today was right in line. Got soaked.
    Still not feeling great but still getting it done!

  3. RUN
    alright Lez dooo dissss 4 mi 00:36 09:00 pace

    Actually the run felt terrible but the weather was fantastic. Legs felt like lead because a) I feel a bit feverish today and b) I did squats yesterday for the first time in a couple months and my l... read more

      Well aside from my legs being ridiculously sore (still from the squats I think) I don't feel any *worse* than I did yesterday.

  4. RUN
    good Waterlogged 4.02 mi 00:35 08:41 pace

    I couldn't see the first 2 miles with the driving rain and wind pelting me in the face. Grr.

  5. RUN
    Marine Drive Trail 4.01 mi 00:37 09:10 pace

    This was basically punishment for staying up too late last night and drinking too much vodka.

  6. RUN
    good Ugh 4 mi 00:37 09:15 pace

    Really nice winter weather. Partly sunny and mid 40s. Took Zander on his bike again.

  7. RUN
    good One day at a Time 4 mi 00:36 08:56 pace

    Well waiting around hasn't gotten me any faster. So I figure I'll try this approach. You know... running. Will revisit this "running" thing on Saturday.

  8. RUN
    good Discovery Trail 4.85 mi 00:46 09:22 pace

    Car was being serviced this morning so I took my youngest and his bike with me and we covered a few miles.

  9. RUN
    good Sshhh! Don't Tell Anyone 3.26 mi 00:29 08:44 pace

    I told myself that once the weather was tolerable I'd do it. So I did.

  10. I am still around, although not checking DM as much since I'm not running at all. Been lifting weights exclusively for the past couple months. Hoping to start running again once the weather ch... read more

  11. RUN
    good Strange Weather 4.01 mi 00:35 08:38 pace

    It's almost mid-November and today it is sunny and almost 70 degrees! Wow!

  12. RUN
    good Lunch Time 4 mi 00:36 09:00 pace

    Time is estimated as I accidentally deleted the run before I even looked at it. No biggie. I can tell that a) I've not run in a couple weeks and b) I've been lifting a lot of weights. We&... read more

  13. RUN
    good Full Frontal 4.03 mi 00:33 08:09 pace

    Wind! Thankfully it was also sunny and about 62 degrees. Really nice, but man that wind was a killer. The difference in pace between miles three and four: 9:01 vs 7:34, all because of wind! 8:52, 9... read more

  14. RUN
    good No Rain 4 mi 00:33 08:09 pace

    Tired today. The first couple were hard to get into but I finished pretty strong with a 7:30. I've done weights twice this week so I think the squats and deadlifts have me a bit weakened.

  15. RUN
    good Back At It 4 mi 00:32 08:06 pace

    Got doused by the rain for most of this. Heavy showers. Otherwise it went pretty well. This week I started a(nother) new schedule for working out. I'll be running tues/thurs and maybe Saturday.

      I have been feeling a bit "under the weather" and expected to run a bit slower, but getting drenched makes me move faster.

  16. RUN
    good Hittin' It 4 mi 00:31 07:52 pace

    I second faster than Monday total. I am enjoying this type of run. Makes me happy. 7:30, 8:30, 7:18, 8:14. Next week I start back up with a 5x5 strength program too.

  17. RUN
    good Grudge Match 4 mi 00:32 07:52 pace

    I felt pretty good about this. 7:30, 8:30, 7:11, 8:19. Idea was to go hard/moderate/hard/moderate. It felt a lot like I used to feel when I first started getting into running 8 or so years ago. It ... read more

  18. RUN
    good Long Post Incoming... 4.01 mi 00:33 08:16 pace

    The short part: the run went fine for being back out of running form. Xfit has definitely improved my short burst cardio though. Splits were 8:20, 8:57, 7:14, 8:30. I was surprised at the 7:14. I w... read more

  19. RUN
    2.25 mi 00:17 07:35 pace

    Today's Xfit was a running workout. Very short. Very depressing. 5 years ago I would have crushed this in under 13 minutes. Hell a few months back I probably would have done it in under 16. Th... read more

      How often do you run this workout in XFit? Do you think it really reflects your overall fitness, or just the variability of the workouts? I would bet you have gained fitness in other areas.

      Yeah I have gained a bit in other areas. It's a matter of specializing vs generalizing for sure. Of course now I'm ditching the xfit because of the tendinitis in my elbow. No idea when that will heal. I'm going back to shorter distance running and basic barbell weight training a few times/week.
