    Well, this is marathon (or longer) 35 completed. No knee pain during the race, and none since (so far). Considering that my longest run in the previous 364 days was a half marathon, I'm coun... read more

    great 20 minutes with Ein 1.99 mi 00:20 10:05 pace

    Well, today Ein was the slow one. He made a sudden bio stop while we were out (that never happens with him), and on the way back, he got chased down by a cute girl puppy that wanted to come see hi... read more

    great 40 minutes solo run 4.12 mi 00:40 09:47 pace

    Tuesday Brick Run 1.09 mi 00:10:05 09:15 pace

    great Tuesday Brick Ride 15.88 mi 01:03 15.0mph pace

    A great ride today. Lots of people were on the Fall Line this afternoon, which made it hard to keep a consistent pace on the ride, but I did hit some strong riding. I even rode with a couple of g... read more

    great 30 minute swim 1300 yd 00:30 40:13 pace

    great Brick Run with Ein 2.93 mi 00:30 10:15 pace

    great Brick Ride 42 mi 03:00 14.0mph pace

    great 1 hour swim 2600 yd 01:00 40:34 pace

    I made it to my swim today. I've been checking out some swim tips, so I worked on them (primarily on how I pull my arm back, and keeping my feet and toes pointed back when I kick. I also wor... read more

      Great work, Keith! Always nice to feel progress. 2 questions for you: Have you tried practicing side breathing with just a kickboard so you can focus on only that? And do you breath out during the downstroke? Sounds like a silly Q, but many people don't, and then try for a quick out-in on the side breath, which makes it harder to get enough air. Exhaling into the water is more efficient. :)

      Rita, Andrea, thanks for the tip. I've made that connection to exhaling into the water, its just getting my inhale worked out to the point that I feel like I'm getting enough air. I'm sure it will come together, its just a matter of grinding through the swim hours to get it all working together.

    Well, Ein wanted to get his run in today. And then he realized it was hot and he has a permanent fur coat. I wasn't sure how he would do in the heat, so I let the pup set the pace since this... read more
