That's it. That's all there is left. Countdown to New Years and a countdown (or rundown as I look at it) to the 1200 mile mark. I got aboooout............55 miles to go. Tonight I did things a little backwards to give myself that extra kick ... Read more

CONTENDER or pretender......................

So I'm on another little running streak here (hence another blog streak as well) as I went out on another decent run tonight. Just like last night, I just grabbed the wife's mp3 (because mine is BROKEN along with the radio bought this year) and... Read more

Finally got out for a sort of decent run tonight. I've had a really crappy week of runs with a suspect case of food poisoning and a little bit of not wanting to deal with some of the weather elements (rain or freezing ground.) I've been gettin... Read more

Gear shifted...............goal TARGETED!

MAN IT FEELS GOOD TO BE BACK IN THE GYM ON A DIFFERENT FORMAT! For a long time now I've been doing high rep sets, toning muscle, cutting weight, and leaning out. Now I'm back to short sets, HEAVY weight, and just bouncing from exercise to exer... Read more

Just taking things in stride

This is just a short add on to my blog earlier today. I did go on that run I described earlier. It's just really about throwing everything together for the run and getting out there. A lot of my blogs say the same thing as "just get out there... Read more

Don't ask me.......I don't even know where I'm going

So being 2 weeks removed from the half marathon, I'm left feeling very unmotivated and somewhat directionless. It's the final month of the year, and I'm excited just to finish out the final weeks and days of continuous running. The 1200 mile m... Read more

A return to the trails and the "hmmmmmmmm"

So it's kind of cool. With no training for a race, I can pretty much run anything I want distance or speed-wise. The only commitment I have is to run everyday til the end of the year. I have that soft goal of 1200 miles out there for the year... Read more

And when you train like a crazy person.......................

So Sunday was the half, and I NAILED the 2 hour mark by about 5 minutes. I ran into a few potentially disastrous things that came up, and almost had to back out of the race at the starting line and a couple miles into the half. Fortunately I ... Read more

It's starting to feel POLAR again!

So temps are now in the 20s in the morning and at night. This morning's run was a frigid mile. Tonight I had my Ghosts on and a jacket already from getting coffee so I just threw on the neoprene mask and left. Back to that run where things ar... Read more

A completely breed of animal

So there's no more runs above a mile before the half on Sunday. Three one mile runs a day just to see if I can increase that natural pace. The first run was quick enough to knock 15 seconds off my last speed run. The second run I notched up t... Read more

So coming out of breakfast this morning, I was a little behind my wife because I paid the bill. She was at the truck already, so I did a little jog across the parking lot. I was VERY happy to notice my natural form just with that short stretch... Read more

So I'm down to a week before me trip, and 9 days before the Vegas half. I had a few days since my last post where the weather was on the warmer side for November, and I put together some decent runs. I got another new pair of Hoka shoes in the... Read more

That's how I'm feeling right now. I really thought I was down and out of the two remaining challenges I have towards the end of the year. It's frustrating and scary to be faced with the possibility of bowing out of something that's been worked... Read more

So far so good

So with the temperatures in the 30s and vicious winds to go with them I just got out for a speed run, and I put off a mid range run for sometime tomorrow. First one since the hamstring strains. I started out just as I did the first time around... Read more

Just give it a shot

I felt a little more comfident about the knee today. Didn't really feel that much tendon snapping, and i only iced it in the morning. I let the run linger on later and later (as usual) and finally just before midnight I had enough. I threw on... Read more
