    6.07 miles over the Queensboro Bridge and along the East River in 43:50. Left calf is feeling sore/buised from the long weekend run. Not sure how to deal with it.

    Four. Lovely, clear day, about 55 degrees.

    Kid nickles - I admire your willingness to get on the elliptical - I can barely handle 5 minutes of indoor exercise.
    9 last night for me with 5 miles at 7 min pace with 100 meter pick ups every 400 meters. Felt decent - 7 minute pace feeling very easy.
    Tonight was 6.5 at like 8 minute pace. Felt like shit probably because I ate a burrito like 45 minutes before I ran. Oh well.

    ^^ yeah, that would do it.

    Today, a big 1.3 miles in 10:45, I had scheduled to run 6, but after the first loop I had to duck inside to make a pit stop, and then the baby started crying, and next thing I know I have 10 minutes left. So I went outside to do more box jumps and v-ups. abs still hurt, but the box jumps weren't too bad. Then I tried the one-leg box jumps onto a step and it wasn't awful - coordination was a big hurdle, though. I can see this getting easier after a few more sessions.

    Almost every day, about 4 miles. The weather has been mostly OK. This has been an unusually warm winter.

    This needs more attention. Myles, I biked over to cheer in that race and the conditions were something else. Even getting around in 1:37 is a massive accomplishment. I watched some friends on their first loop and bailed before my toes froze off.

    For me, a return from a week layoff to a wonderful 5 miles. I love running the less I do it.

    Up next, the ESBRU on 2/8. Gulp.

    7 tonight with an awful tempo run. 5k in 19:40 . . . felt pretty crappy. It was on muddy grass but tempos always challenge me. I got it done though and feel much better for it now.
    Myles I didn't see your post of that half. Nice work.
    11oClock - that is the abbreviation for the empire state run to the top yes?

    Yeah the conditions were pretty gnarley out here, but in all honesty I think it was the most fun I had running in CP in some time, it almost felt like trail running. So given the conditions, the 1:37 is pretty solid.

    I'm running the ESBRU as well - about11oclock - have you run it before? This is going to be my 4th stab at it.

    And yeah - ran 4.32 miles on the treadmill yesterday in 31:12 with half miles portions on 15 incline to cycle in some hill work.

    8 miles, pretty easy this morning. Looking good for March marathon. Just have to be sure the wife isn't too upset (near her birthday)

    5 with four two-minute intervals at tempo (or as best I could judge without a heart rate monitor). Toward the end, I got flashed when I came across a couple of women who'd gone off on a side path so that one could change her shirt. So, that happened.
