Time for a nap and then there are a few 18+ old bottles of bourbon and scotch that are waiting for me to celebrate with them.

Holy cow, excellent job!

Halves: 1:29:37 first, 1:29:38 2nd. Feeling pretty fucking pleased with myself.

Got a cold late last week, ran 9 on Sunday, slept in Monday, 6 x 800 on the track this morning. My times were pretty well in line with the past few workouts (3:25 -> 3:15). I still sound like Barry White.

This morning, 5 miles at a 7.40 pace. Running on wet leaves is as tricky as running on ice.

6.5, starting just before dawn. Saw this after a couple of miles:

Yessir...is it easier on the rings?

No, I was in gymnastics in high school and we could not swing to do our initial muscle-up. It's harder on the rings IMO.

I've only done it on the rings, but I was under the impression it was easier on the rings. You're a gymnast, so I believe you. Either way, a helluva feat for non-gymnast.

4.1 nice and easy today. Felt decent toward recovery from the Marathon Saturday. Thighs, quads, and hamstrings were still a bit sore.

NYR- Tks for the video to explain.

I tried to do a muscle up when I was at muscle beach in Venice the other weekend. Absolute and total fail. NYRR's a beast.
For me tonight: 9 with 5 hill surges at between 510 and 610 pace, hills ranging from 1000 meters to 250 meters long. Nice workout, as I did it on trails with a fun group.

I woke up late and still managed to get a 3.5 mile run in. I felt a cold coming on but decided to power through it. Probably a pretty stupid decision as I am now slowly losing my voice as the day progresses.

A little over 6K (3.8 miles), i.e. my standard pre-work run. Some day I'd love to train for a half, but that day hasn't arrived yet.

Bummer. The run usually turns things around for me.

5 miles for me today.

Also, got a new pair of running shoes today....went to this store called Fit 2 Run, which is one of those specialty running stores that measures your gait while running, the arches in your feet, etc. Apparently, I have really high arches, which I never knew. I tried on a bunch of shoes, tested them out on the track in their store, and ended up going with the Brooks Glycerin 10, and I got a pair of orthodic inserts to support my high arches. I could tell the difference between these and my old running shoes instantly, and I think my future runs will be much better now smile.gif

Beatlegeuse - I happen to work in One of those stores . . . Good choice! The proper footwear helps a ton!

A very sluggish 5 miles am/8 miles pm today.
