    Airport-Hobbs 17.26 mi 01:08 15.2mph pace

    Good ride. Took the hilly route for the first time in months. Almost ran over Eddie W in the dark on his run!

  2. RUN
    good Dashers - Greenway-Spring Garden 5.7 mi 00:51 08:58 pace

    First run with the group since marathon training got serious... fun! Probably back to solo, though, to keep speed up for TH10 in a couple of weeks. I'm on track for a monthly race streak, and... read more

    alright Hill Repeats: 6x Walker-Chapman 4 mi 00:34 08:27 pace

    Tired legs this morning. Repeats on the Walker hill to Chapman - 2 sprints up/6 sprints up: 1:17; 1:16; 1:14; 1:17; 1:12; 1:14. It's apparent I've been focusing on flat-road training; ... read more

    good Mowed, then Rode 41.7 mi 02:46 15.0mph pace

    I waited 'til it warmed up some, and it was really windy. About 20 miles was into a strong headwind. I needed that.

    good Spring Garden-Walker - Hill F... 8 mi 01:04 08:01 pace

    First run since Sunday's marathon, everything felt good. Cold, and very windy. I did this "no-look", and just ran by feel... I guess I'm enjoying a nice pace bump after the ra... read more

      Paul - the only cool part us I watched a video I made in one if my rides recently... thus made it tolerable!

      Masayo - I WAS swimming most of the winter, but I've slacked off. Do you think you'll do one again thus season? Tom and I plan on LKN again.

    My legs feel pretty good, but not yet ready for any work.

    great Wrightsville Beach Marathon 26.2 mi 03:33 08:07 pace

    Great day today! PR by almost 7 minutes, 3rd place age group, and a BIG BQ. Weather-wise, this was perfect - for me. Mid-50s at the start, cloudy the whole way, and almost no wind. The course is... read more

    good Sunset Hills 1.8 mi 00:16 09:01 pace

    Short run before tomorrow's race. Not sure if it was necessary, but it felt good to do SOMETHING. Single loop of the 'hood, with a couple of quick hills and some short sprints. Some wo... read more

    good Weights - Whole Self 00:45

    Good whole-body workout, including the squat rack and glutes machine. I've become convinced that building a stronger butt will be my key to everlasting happiness.

    Yay - the final run in the FIRST plan. 1-mi warmup; 3 miles @ MP (7:59); 1-mi cooldown. I may do a short run Saturday morning before I drive to Wrightsville. Really nice temp at 50-ish; sprinkle... read more

    good Intervals: 6 x 1/4 mi 4 mi

    Really nice morning, 53F. As much as I love winter, I could get used to this running weather! Short intervals on the plan this morning, so I decided to just do them in front of the house. Target... read more

    Good ride, but I've got a 100k ride in the mountains in three weeks - I've got to get some more time in the saddle! This was a start. Still on the heavy bike (Old Yeller)... Black Beaut... read more
