  1. RUN
    4 x 1 mile repeats 4 mi 00:30 07:25 pace

    One mile repeats run. It worked out well, other than my Garmin's battery dying right after the start of the fourth mile (so I arbitrarily gave the fourth mile a pace of 7:40). Otherwise, it ... read more

      Good work, Keith! I bet your last mile was much faster than you took credit for.

      Mike, no idea. The tiny bit my garmin got before the battery dropped was 7:07, but that was before the two uphill stretches. Thanks to you and Shelly as well!

    great Foam Roller Recovery 00:10:00

    Spent about 10 minutes with my roller to get my legs loosened up.

  5. So, is anyone else doing the 'Finish on the 50' over at Auburn, Alabama on Saturday? I'm in for the half marathon (hopefully I can hold moderate pace for the half!)

  6. RUN
    great Ein's short run 0.65 mi 00:06:40 10:15 pace

    I got Ein out for a short run today, as he hasn't been running for a while. Since he's still a pup, I'm going to keep his distance down a bit for the rest of the week. Next week, w... read more

  7. RUN
    great Recovery run 3.11 mi 00:31 09:55 pace

    I got in some recovery miles, and some time out to get used to the coming heat. It was a good run, and seemed to help loosen my legs up a bit. Other than heavy traffic at a couple of intersection... read more

    great Tempo Run 4.01 mi 00:32 07:51 pace

    I was hoping to hit 7:49 for this run, but I was a touch slow. That's not a bad thing, a few seconds off tells me that I'm getting my training right and coming closer to my goal. Additi... read more

      Thanks, everyone! Adam, speed is relative depending on distance. Remember that 14:24 is the pace to maintain for a sub 24 hour 100 miler (keeping that steady during the race is another beast, but the numbers are valid). Definitely keep a speed run going, as it does help!

      Great tempo run! I left the speed work out of my training for the most part during the half marathon season and it killed my speed. Now that it's time for shorter races I'm planning to add it back in and not leave it out next year!

    Ein seemed to want to walk this morning, so we walked his route. We still had encounters with a squirrel, several dogs in their yards, and two cats in a driveway that all had Ein interested and wa... read more

    great 4 mile recovery run 4.03 mi 00:43 10:37 pace

    Today's recovery run was slow, easy, and managed by letting my legs set the pace instead of me worrying about it. Just a few miles to relieve the stress of faster pace runs, and to enjoy the ... read more

      I'll toast to that sentiment! And terrific way to just let the body recover with no worries.

      Adam, its a lesson I'm finally learning. If there's some speed there, I'm okay with it, but letting your body set the pace is critical.

      Rachelle, I'm just getting that worked out, too. First thing was to get my running workouts in the right order, which helped a lot!

    Took Ein out for a quick run this morning, to help him loosen up. Everything went well for the first 0.25 miles. Then, we found the squirrel (Ein wanted to chase him), and then a yard with two do... read more
