• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

My last 'long run' before the race today, and actually not that long, because of the taper - just my 16km route (about 10 miles). The air is starting to get cold in the morning now, but it was sunny and clear, which was perfect for a riverside run. It was all nice and smooth, and I ended up just under 6min/km again.

Now, the whole of the rest of this week until next Sunday, I will only run a total of 16km. I am going to eat well, and relax.

Ran 5.5 miles on a beautiful San Francisco fall morning. I’ve been itching to move out of town for a while now, but then I go for a run that winds up at this view:

My knee wasn’t too happy about the down climb unfortunately. Not as bad as I used to get but I definitely need to be careful about over doing it.

Nashville has a little spot where you can see downtown from the trails. Amazes me such a thing exists so close to a city.

Same in Atlanta! I can't believe at times I can have a yard and a house within walking distance of Downtown.

First run since Weds due to travel and having a cold that I am 90% over. Simple, easy, 3.5 miles in 30 minutes with no stopping.

4.5 trail miles with the dogs. The weather was absolutely perfect for me (64 with a light breeze), and this my fastest training run since probably April, at an 8:21/mile pace.

5.5 miles in 52 minutes had to stop for a few minutes for my dog to sniff and then in felt really nauseous around mile 3 and walked for a minute or two

Track intervals last night. I made sure to take it properly easy to minimise any chance of injury, so I ran with the sub-4:30 min/km group not my usual sub-4:00 group. 1200 / 800 // 1200 / 600 // 1200 / 400, at an average pace of 4:17 min/km, which is almost exactly 30 seconds / km slower than normal, and I felt relaxed and was hardly sweating.

3 damp trail miles with the dogs. It started sprinkling lightly around the time I started and the ground was nearly saturated when I finished. It’s about to start snowing now...

Since I am new to running, I am also new to running soreness. I ran on the treadmill (ew, gross) yesterday for a shorter and slower distance than usual and now the muscles on the outside of my tibia (lateral side) are sore.

It's raining today, so I haven't been out, but I don't think I really need to, with the race on Sunday. It looks like it's going to be raining overnight beforehand and then cloudy and around 15ºC during the race itself. That suits me just fine.

I have no idea how this is going to go. Can you feel both relaxed and scared? Confident and nervous? Well, I am all of these. I know I've done what I can, and that my training program has gone well, despite being a little too short to be ideal.

In the race itself, I am determined to keep to my pace, aiming for a 3:45:00 finish, and not go too fast even if I feel I can go faster. If I still feel good towards the end (say, last 10km), then I will speed up a bit - I mean, I'd be delighted with 3:30:00, but the main idea is to finish. I don't mind if I end up on 4:00:00. I just want to know that I can do this.

If I can, then next year, once I've had a full year of proper training and I'm down to a better weight, I will go harder.

See you all on Sunday evening...

I ran 3.1 on mixed terrain (damp muddy trails and sidewalks/paved paths) with the dogs. The temps were in the upper 20s, with snow flurries falling, and I was overheating. Good times... I also climbed for 90 minutes at the gym at lunchtime, getting my first V6 in a few months in the process.

7 miles yesterday around the neighborhood. I've somehow dropped down to 177lbs which is somewhat worrisome. I feel great around 180 but any lower than that and I feel off. Maybe it is just a mind thing but I need to eat more. I may opt for a few sessions with a trainer at the gym to get back into the swing of things there. Proper warmup then some sort of weights.
