1:35:00 :: 14 miles

Easy run. Felt the leg a bit at 8-9 miles, then it gradually faded. No pain, just a mild tightness. Legs felt great, overall felt easy and relaxed for the whole run. Stopped short of the full 1:45 I was planning due to the leg issues.

Good choice on cutting it short. I've been resisting the temptation to jack up my mileage. Two miles less now is worth it if you stay healthy. Do you have any idea when you want to race next?

Here's to progress!

Hey Eric,
Good to hear that you're getting some good runs, keep up the great work.

Sky said...

Nice to see things getting back on track.

Not sure what to say about the new graphical depiction of your current training status...

Ewen said...

My mind has exploded - I've shelved all plans to commence a career as an ultra runner!

Thanks for the HR info - 87% gives me something of a guide. I think I'd be fairly similar.

Pat, I will be running the Fargo Half Marathon in about 10 days. After that, we'll process the results by supercomputer, and create an ultra-secret plan of action. I fear I've said too much...

Thanks, Steve. I'll see you in less than a couple of weeks. Should be fun!

Sky and Ewen, considering one of you is speechless and the other has been rendered mindless, perhaps I need to take down that graphic. I didn't anticipate a couple of things: 1) my audience is physically strong and remarkably attractive, but cannot be expected to tolerate concentrated awesome without either: a) a warning, or b)welding goggles, and (watch out, nested lists!) 2) Pat has an inhuman ability to handle concentrated awesome with an uncommon artistic flair that lends credibility to the hotly debated theory that he is a cyborg that has modeled its artificial intelligence on repeated viewings of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Grizzly Adams, and Baywatch.

Having said all that, I now have concerns for my own humanity...

Hey Rick...thanks for the link. I found that vid a few days back, I have been watching it a lot lately, remembering how much fun it is to just get out and go.

Eric, congrats on Boston! It looked like a tough day out there for a lot of folks, especially with the wind. I'll probably see you at the start line on Saturday. Cheers!

You had a similar run to mine from this morning!
Check out my own little blog from Canada! Its completely black out and below freezing temperature, my soul patch was frozen with ice when I got home!
