    NP West End loops 4 mi 00:34 08:32 pace

    Strange how things change. I was going to just get in 4 miles as a taper week kick off at easy "dont get hurt" kind of pace. But the sun was shining bright and was the first day I've... read more

  5. RUN
    RVRR Club Run - Rutgers Campus 5.75 mi 00:50 08:37 pace

    The club run was the perfect way to end the first taper week. Only one loop., but pretty speedy pace. A few miles were above my likely MP and the HR was still in the MP zone. A good sign and keepin... read more

  6. RUN
    4.5 mi 00:45 10:00 pace

    Last gym and last bike workout before Boston in 10 days! The taper madness continues....

  7. RUN
    NP Tempo run to downtown and ... 7.07 mi 01:00 08:31 pace

    Last tempo run before Boston! Wanted to see where my likely MP would be at, which has been difficult with a reduced training cycle, no real test races, and pretty much kept the training wheels on. ... read more

      Wow, Boston is really close!!! Have a GREAT time! Don't forget to look to the right as you pass the mirrored service station so you can see yourself running in the Boston Marathon. Throw up your arms at the top of the Newton Hills as everyone cheers.. they will erupt if you do this! Smile at the Citigo sign and the people headed to watch the Red Sox and show your smile, lack of fear and patriotism as you run down Boylston! Way to go!! Most of all, forget the pace and just have a BLAST!!!

  8. RUN
    NP 8x400m hill repeats 6.25 mi 00:59 09:22 pace

    Last hill repeats of this Boston training cycle. I didn't do that many hill workouts because of my fragile feet and knees this time, but this one was a quality workout. Ran downhill at MP ever... read more

  9. RUN

    Quick Easter loop before family gatherings.

  10. RUN
    RVRR Club run - Rutgers Campus 12.1 mi 01:55 09:32 pace

    Good group for the RVRR club run. Decent enough pace as the taper continues to wind down.

    Boston Marathon shoe selection is in! This was a tough one this time, but I'm going with an all-time classic and the Brooks Launch (in Boston colors!) I'm also a sucker for the little &qu... read more

      About the tough choice....lots of recent foot injuries, so trained easy and long runs in the Ghost (but too much shoe for 26.2) and speed in the Mizuno Sayonara (but not enough cush for 26.2) so needed something in the middle that had lots of forefoot cushioning, but still faily light. Also needed wider toebox with some stretch, but also rugged enough to take an orthotic. Not many Goldilocks shoes that were just right, but the launch seems to fit the bill. Many runners will now say "duh!"

  13. RUN
    4 mi 00:36 08:55 pace

    First run in Brooks Launch to start to break in for Boston. Was going to do 4 easy miles, but felt good and ended up pushing to a tempo MP pace workout. Shoes, pace and HR all good.

  14. RUN
    RVRR Club run - Highland park... 7.13 mi 01:08 09:28 pace

    RVRR April Fools/Crazy hat day club run. I went with the sock monkey hat and headed out. Was planning on doing 4-5 miles, but good conversation and easy pace kept me out and ended up doing the full... read more

    Dragon's NYC birthday adventu... 16.6 mi 02:48 10:05 pace

    Fun run around NYC sights with a great group. Nice and easy pace with lots of picture stops, which is the perfect way to run the big city. Lots of laughs and great conversation and my last long run... read more

  17. RUN
    WE to downtown to park 7 mi 01:08 09:45 pace

    Nice easy run with 16 on tap tomorrow.

  18. RUN
    West end to library and park 7 mi 01:06 09:25 pace

    Second workout of the day, so a double to catch up. Was going to do it at super easy recovery pace, but felt good and ended as a pretty good easy paced run with decent HR to match.

  19. VELO
    Gym bike 6 mi 01:00 6.0mph pace

    An easy paced hour on the bike at around 70%HRmax. Part one of a double day to catch up....6-7 mile run laters.

  20. RUN
    West End and park 5.51 mi 00:52 09:27 pace

    First run on the neighborhood 5+ route in ages, but 60F and couldn't resist. The pace was the closest I've been last year's easy pace and my HR stayed in the easy zone as well...bare... read more
