    Treadmill, one of the few benefits.

    20 miles that felt like torture. Must be making me stronger, right?

    11.2 trail miles today. Nice weather, 33 degrees and some tromped down snow on the trails made a nice run.

    Somewhere between 23 (according to google maps) and 26 trail miles (according to other runners who run a similar route and how my legs feel).

    Tons of elevation and 30+ mph headwinds made the return trip extra challenging. As much as I hate the winds, it made for an extra beautiful day (approaching the turnaround)

    Just did six miles. A bit of snow on the ground, thus a bit slippery all the way.

    5.1 miles at easy pace today.

    I added a 47" TV to my 10.5" android on the treadmill. While I hate the Tmill, it does make things quite a bit better.

    Blah - Great pic and trail to run. Looking forward to spring.

    Blah, that looks fantastic.

    wingin', all you need to make that complete is a kick-ass fan to blow the sweat away.

    5.1 miles today, felt much better than when I did the half marathon last weekend. I stopped at a park halfway through the run to do about 10 minutes of pullups and dips at a park that had workout stations. It was a nice way to break up the run, I think I'll have to run by that park again.

    I got in about 5.5 miles this morning. It was 6º and my phone/music shutdown around the halfway mark.


    I hate the crowds of people at the starts of bigger races. If I cannot start in one of the front corals (or if there aren't separate corals), and the run is at least 10k, I will usually just go pretty slow for the first half mile or so before I bother trying to get around the slower folks.

    As for walking around to much the day before, I think that can be a huge contributor to a less-than-optimal performance. The day before my first Marine Corps Marathon I probably walked at least 5 miles in DC and the next morning I was just beat. It ended up being my worst marathon to date.


    I wish we had a park with those workout stations around me because I would do the same thing. I've made do with pull-ups on some playground equipment but that's about all I've found. Once a week in the spring and summer I'll stop at every playground or park that I pass on my run and do 10-15 push-ups. They really add up after a while.

    4 miles this morning, all running. Felt pretty good and wasn't painfully slow. Just slow. :D

    7.5 miles along Cherry Creek in downtown Denver. Didn't find the altitude to be a problem surprisingly.

    The more I think about it, the more I think all the walking the day before did play a big part in my fatigue and cramps on race day, because every other run before and since that race I haven't had those same issues at all.

    I recently just discovered one park that had the workout stations along one of the routes I run, but I'm definitely glad I did. It's actually in a gated community, so I can't drive there, but if I run past it, it's right next to the sidewalk so I can sneak in through the pedestrian gate that stays open from dawn to dusk. It's a really fun way to break up the run and I plan on using it every time I run past it now. I used to be better at pullups, so I want to get back to where I used to be with those.

    7.75 miles at a 9:24 pace with just over 1000 feet of climbing. The climbing was almost all in one steady climb from 1.3 to 3.4 mile mark. Good times on my favorite trails!
