I don't do sprints but watch out for tripping while sprinting if not on a track.


5 easy miles this morning.

Today was supposed to be a rest day but the weather after work was too nice to not get out for a run. I got in a bit over 6 miles in temps in the high 60s with no humidity. You don't get many July evenings like that around here.

Got in 7.35 miles on the trails this morning.  Started with it being pretty dark and wondering if I should have brought a headlamp.  It was cool and an amazing start to the day.  The worst part...cob webs.  I swear I hit some big ones because after the run they were still on me.

I ran none miles today. Right achilles felt a little off yesterday, and I realized this morning that my upcoming half isn't my big race this year, so sacrificing a bit of training for it in service of staying healthy was for the greater good.

Plus, I didn't want to have to buy deet just to go running.

5.5 miles this morning, preparing for another 9 mile run on Sunday. I ran pretty slow when I did 9 last week, so I'm going to try speeding it up this weekend. I've been ramping up mileage by 2 total miles per week every 2 weeks, and increasing my long runs by one mile every 2 weeks, but I think I'll be ready for a week-long break in a few weeks, just to make sure I don't burn myself out or get injured

A bit under 10 miles this morning. I went looking for a Frank Lloyd Wright house in the dark in a slightyl unfamiliar neighborhood near me and ended up running about a quarter mile up a hilly, winding dirt road only to realize it wasn't a road at all but somebody's driveway, I decided, "in for a penny, in for a pound" so I continued up the driveway until I got to the house. When I got to the end of the driveway there was a new-ish looking Rolls Royce, Mercedes G-Wagon, and a couple older SL convertibles parked in the turn around in front of their lawn tennis court. Rough neighborhood. dozingoff.gif

I did eventually find the FLW house. I believe it's one of his smaller ones but it has a great setting - a nice large lot with some great looking trees nicely spread out. I want to run by again when there is a bit more light and try and get a couple photos. I knew this house was near me but didn't know exactly where and then I saw a recent article about it and was inspired to look it up. Turns out, I've probably run past it a couple dozen times over the past few years. Photo gallery

There's another one of his houses about a mile and a half further east but it's right off of a major road with no sidewalks or good running paths. Thankfully, that one is owned by a local university and they offer tours. I may have to bite the bullet and spend the $10 if I want to see it.

No run this morning but 2 breakfasts.  I am not ashamed.

Thanks for sharing, MP. I wasn't familiar with that FLW home. I find that I love his buildings, but don't care for his furnishings nearly as much.

10K around Central Park last night...And 235 jumps during this shoot:

6.4 and 5.6 miles earlier this week. Took off the last 2 days. Pacing a friend in his first 50K tomorrow at Dances With Dirt - Devils Lake edition. The Running Fit guys from MP's neighborhood have this event and put on a good race. Should be a blast. Thunderstorms may even hold off until we are done.

No run for me today. Worse feeling ever. I have a cold, mostly head cold, although I can feel the drip which is causing a sore throat, and I have a touch of chest congestion now. That is enough for me to hang up the shoes for at least a day. (I exercise every day, period, so this is extremely difficult for me.)

Got 10.9 miles @ 7:28/mi pace this morning on flat ground in Ohio.  Ran past 3 groups of women (10-12 each group) this morning which I thought was a little off but maybe some sort of safety thing?

That's nice pace, jb.
