    Clearly I have no ability to post via my ipad so here is my weekend summary out at the Sawatch

    Went out to Leadville on Thursday and planned on hiking/ running Mt. Massive on Friday. Weather was perfect. Climbed from just over 10,000 feet to 14,421 at the top in 2:18 or so, then ran the downhill in about 1:39 minutes for a total of 3:57. Air was super thin but it was a pretty amazing experience.

    On Saturday i ran the Leadville Heavy Half Marathon which is about 15.6 miles in 2:52:40. took me about 1:48 for the climb of 3,500 feet and about 1:04 for the descent.

    Quads are def feeling it today but had a great weekend out there.

    MP, you made me curious, so I went back to my previous years

    2009: 251.1 (My first year running, and I apparently had the zeal of a convert. This is actually the second half of the year because I started running in May.)

    2010: 105.4

    2011: 114.2

    2012: 283.3

    2013: 400.7

    I note with interest that every year I have run more July-December than I did January-June...

    7,1 miles today. Big 3 days for me with close to 39 miles. 50K Dances w/ Dirt in 2 weeks. Start peaking / tapering now.

    MP - Nice pics. Small parks out of the way are sometimes the best.
    Myles - Way cool trip and looks like you are ready for VT with those runs. Quads should be trashed w/ those ascents and descents. I'd think the calfs aren't too happy either.
    MP / SB - I'm at 886 thru end of June.

    Legs are feeling suprisingly fresh today which I'm happy about. Got in 7.5 miles in CP in 1:01:07

    And not that I'm keeping track, but at the half way point of the year I'm at 1,031 miles.....

    I put in 6.3 miles this morning and am sort of tapering for the next couple of weeks. I am planning on running a "practice marathon" on the 28th that is just a few loops between my house, my wife's aunt's house, and a local private school campus. I figure I can set up a makeshift aid/hydration station at the houses and the school has a lot of water fountains.

    Very impressive Myles, and I agree with Wingin' It that those hills mountains must be pretty tough on the quads but fun to run and train in.

    I think that next year I'd like to try and find a marathon to run that's at a higher elevation than I am used to, maybe somewhere like Santa Fe, Flagstaff, Salt Lake City, Yakima, or Denver.

    5.5 miles with plenty of hill work. (It's not called Rochester Hills for nothing.) Today, I tried the CEP compression calf sleeves and loved them. These are much, much better than Zensah, IMO. After several days of crappy weather, today is glorious with a blue sky and moderate temperature. Wish it was like this every day.

    I put in a quick 6.3 miles this morning. My first mile was at a 7 minute 20 second pace (which is insanely fast for me) but then I slowed it down and just did a stride at about 90% effort every third block I came to.


    I like to run out of Rochester on the nice flat Paint Creek Trail but then do a turn headed west on Dutton, north on Brewster, and east on Silver Bell back to the trail (and then do the reverse on the way back into town) to get in a bit of elevation. I think that hill on Dutton is one of the worst that I've come across in the area. The stretch of Livernois between Tienken and Dutton is pretty good too.

    I haven't run on that trail in a looooong time. I may need to head out there this weekend.

    3.1 this morning. My marathon program started today.

    Here's a picture from Golden Gate Patk I meant to post last week. I love running there.

    Awesome pic SB, looks like a fantastic route to run on. 3.1 for me today as well, didn't wake up early enough to run this morning, so I did an evening run tonight.

    In mid May, I was convinced that I would never run again. Today, I ran the "Run of the Mill 5K" in a small, small village ("Reduced Speed") village in SE Michigan. I certainly set no records, but I maintained an even pace and felt great afterwards. The setting of the race was pure Norman Rockwell. Happy 4th!
