    good Wednesday 6 mi 00:51 08:25 pace

    Nothing wrong with this run but I just felt flat. No pep at all. Thankfully that's totally acceptable right now.

  2. RUN
    alright Sluggish 6 mi 00:55 09:07 pace

    Just really slow today. Effort was pretty light but it was one of those days where I couldn't have made myself run faster. That's OK, I've got lots more work to do.

  3. RUN
    good Finally 6 mi 00:51 08:32 pace

    I finally manged a 4 day run week. This was pleasant enough although there was the expected fatigue from running less than 24 hours after a previous 6 miles. For the most part I kept the pace nice ... read more

  4. RUN
    blah Uh Oh 6 mi 00:50 08:22 pace

    First 4 miles were pretty good. Things became not-so-pleasant at the end of mile 5 and an emergency stop was needed. I'll leave it at that.

  5. RUN
    good Still Going 6.01 mi 00:50 08:23 pace

    I'm claiming the .01. Legs were noticeably fatigued from Monday. A few weeks ago this pace would have been much harder so I'm pretty happy. Effort was pretty steady and I didn't floo... read more

    good Birthday Miles 6 mi 00:48 08:02 pace

    I was going to run 42 miles for my 42nd birthday. No, I wasn't.
    But conditions were almost ideal with a cloudy 60 degrees, on legs that hardly had any work last week (12 miles total last week... read more

      In fact if you toss out the first mile I think that makes my 5 consecutive mile average like 7:57.

      Looks like another year didn't slow you down! Nice job on the speedy miles, and happy birthday. Hope it's a good one!

    tired 6 mi

    Wife took my inhaler out of my car. This didn't go well. I walked most of one mile.

  8. RUN
    good Back Home 6 mi 00:51 08:26 pace

    Quick weekend trip to Tulsa left no time to run on Saturday. So my last 2 weeks have been a stagnant 18 miles each. But despite being pretty tired I got a nice sunny jog in today now that I'm ... read more

    good Salmon Creek Weasel Miles 6 mi 00:50 08:22 pace

    Yeah so two of the coolest predator moments I've witnessed have occurred on running trails. A few years ago a Cooper's hawk tore through the tree canopy and knocked a hooded junco out of ... read more

    good Cooler Temps, Faster Times 6 mi 00:50 08:15 pace

    Fastest time this year on a 6 mile route. I wasn't necessarily aiming for that when I started, but mid-way into mile 3 it became clear I had some legs today. So I went with it. I can't wa... read more

    good To Quote America: 6 mi

    The heat was hot. Lovely day for sure but slow running. I actually felt good after the first 3 miles but faded really fast. I must have left my Garmin at home because I couldn't find it and th... read more

  12. RUN
    good Mission Accomplished 6 mi 00:53 08:54 pace

    I really didn't have a mission when I started. But as I was finishing up mile 1 I thought it might be smart to take this one really easy, since I'm running the same distance again tomorro... read more

    good Another Wednesday 6 mi 00:50 08:17 pace

    Fairly predictable improvement for this week. Not major but noticeable. Next week I'll be travelling so not sure if I'll get all my miles in.

      Predictable improvement... That sounds awesome! Keep it up Aric and you'll be smashing your goals soon.

    good Killdeer Chicks 6 mi 00:51 08:24 pace

    No that's not a band, although it would be a good name. I actually saw killdeer chicks for the first time ever on the trail today. If you don't know, killdeer are those long legged little... read more

      Interesting. And if they were a band, I would definitely go see them. What trail did you run? Nice pace!

      Marine Drive trail. Pretty much my only option during the week unless I'm on the road, which is rare.

    good Cooler Weather 6.01 mi 00:51 08:30 pace

    Evidently the heat was the main factor in the sucky runs this week. I base that on the fact that today was fine, and it was also about 55 degrees and cloudy. Much better conditions for me. No soren... read more

      Yep, when the heat shows up it's like a slap in the face! I'm glad it's cooled down some for a few. Sweet 6!

    alright Weak but Better 6 mi 00:53 08:50 pace

    Still a tough run for me but not as bad as Monday. I think the combination of increased volume (gee, I'm up to 20 miles/week now) and 80+ degree weather explains it. In any event the miles are... read more

    good Day 4 2 mi 00:17 08:39 pace

    It's been a very long time since I ran 2 days in a row even with the very light volume. Kinda cool, I forgot how long it takes to loosen up and get past the aches and pains of the previous day.

  20. RUN
    good One More Down 6 mi 00:51 08:26 pace

    Just a bit slower than Wed, but still good. I could tell I didn't have the power I did then, but really pretty close. Tomorrow: TWO miles. Yes, TWO entire miles.
