    I ran in a half marathon through downtown Detroit yesterday with a new PR of 1:38:07 which beat my previous PR by more than 2 minutes. I was ecstatic with the time, especially considering that I was not even attempting to go that fast. I figured it would be hard to keep up a good pace in the first organized run of the spring, but I guess keeping up the running over the winter really paid off.

    I've got another HM in less than 3 weeks but this one will be much tougher - a trail route with some significant hills.

    Congrats on that run! BTW--I checked out your Tumblr and those are some awesome photos. I felt very much aligned to your "why-I-run" post featuring the paczeks, too. :D

    20.0 miles on Sunday. My last long training run before the Big Sur marathon later this month. Felt great, although I avoided any steep hills. Now, the tapering begins.

    6.5 this morning. Not actually hot, but it sure did feel like it.

    Nice HM PR MP. That's a very good time regardless of time of year.

    Ran four miles, finishing just before midnight. I didn't feel like running in the 86 degree weather in the afternoon.

    7.2 miles this morning. It poured rain all night but thankfully finished up just before I hit the road for my run.

    Walked 5 miles. My hamstring tightened up about a week ago and was causing a lot of discomfort so I decided massage and rest is best

    11.4 miles today w/ mile tempo intervals. Last big run, start to taper now.


    Hamstring problems are no fun. If rest isn't quite getting it, try some of the dynamic stretches from Wharton's website. They helped me when mine was a bit tweaked in the past.

    First run yesterday after a week fighting the flu.... bit over 8 miles in 92 degree temps. Not a great run but got a big race in a couple weeks so need to put these legs back to work.

    It'll actually be my first 50M. Leona Divide. I'm a little worried that I haven't trained enough (I'm not even sure what "enough" is for a race like this), but hoping my tenacity will carry me through :).

    4 this morning with a friend who's training to do Bay To Breakers next month. This was his longest run ever. He said afterward that he felt pretty good!

    8.5 for lunch. Normally I like a rest day before going long on Saturday but thought it might be a good idea to go long on slightly tired legs instead. I might not think this was such a good idea come tomorrow though.
