I love when the clock Fall back.  An extra hour to the day!  Had a great run today.  Ran in my shorts again!!  Ran my boston prep route.  Started at 7:20 pace and progressed down to 6:10 pace.  I had a pretty solid week considering wrestling started.  Gotta keep it going until I officially get dialed into Boston training.

11 miles

Another day running in shorts.  Ran my south loop with extra.  Felt great running.  I'm in pretty good shape right now considering not doing many workouts.

7 miles

Running in shorts in November!!!! Loving this weather. Got it done again after wrestling practice tonight. Ran to Huffman and back and added some extra. Felt good.  Glad the work week is done.

10 miles

Another great wrestling practice today.  I had to wait until after 6pm again to run, but I felt really good. I ran my south loop mostly in the dark.  Lots of trick or treaters out too.  It's not ideal running after a long day, but I gotta suck it up and I'm glad when I'm out there doing it.

6 miles

First day of wrestling today and it went good.  Kids seem motivated and ready to put in some work.  I had to wait until 6:30p to get my run in. I felt really good running though.  Kept it easy.  Still warm outside (40 degrees) and I ran in my shorts and it's almost November!

10 miles

Wow!  50 degrees and sunny today.  Almost November and I'm running in shorts.  Had a great run today too.  Ran my south loop.  Started at 7:20 pace and progressed down to 5:44 pace my last mile.  I felt really good. Wrestling starts tomorrow!!!!!!

7 miles

Nice and easy today after work.  Felt really good running and wanted to run longer.

An easy run before work today.  A light rain, but felt good being outside.  Wrestling begins on Wednesday. Gonna get busy.

10 miles

I woke up at 6am to get this run done, so I could enjoy my daughters dance recital today!!!! Felt awesome running in the dark and cool weather.  It was a clear sky and lots of stars out.  I felt pretty good this morning and usually it's hard for me to get going that early.  Nice to have out of the way too.

10 miles (5 @ Tempo)

Had a great run this morning.  I did a real easy 4 miles w/ 5 striders and then did a progressive tempo run.  It felt pretty darn easy, but I'm not really trying to get workouts in right now. Just wanted to spin the legs and get a harder effort in.  It was fun though.

4 mile warm-up w/ striders
5 miles (5:56, 5:52, 5:46, 5:42, 5:39)
1 mile cool down.

7 miles

Easy recovery pace after work today.  I'm feeling good and almost like I could start training serious for my next Marathon.  Wrestling starts next wednesday though, so I'm going to have to try and get my running in.  It'll be pretty busy starting wednesday until Boston in April. But, sometimes you gotta work hard to enjoy things.  I'm actually looking forward to it.

9 miles (10 x 20 sec. striders)

Sunny but cooler outside today.  Felt really good though.  Ran to Dearmoun and back and an extra mile.  Through in some striders toward the end to spin the legs a little.

6 miles

Very sore and my right hip was tight.  I wrestled last night with my son and a couple other kids.  I'm just not sure I can still do both at my age and be focused on running.  Anyways, easy pace for the entire run today.

10 miles

I ran my south loop right after work today.  I started at 7:22 pace and progressed down to 6:06 pace at the end. I felt pretty good and it was a beautiful fall day.  Suppose to get colder the next couple days, but warming up again this weekend.  Good effort today.

Easy pace this morning before work to Huffman and back.  Nice fall morning, but I really need to start eating better.  I eat too much before I go to bed and I can feel it weighing me down when I'm running.  I realize this is the off season from marathon training, but I can still start eating better.

14 miles

Was able to sleep in and have a little breakfast and coffee before I went for run.  Another nice fall day out, but still really windy.  Ran my Boston prep route and added a couple miles at the end.  Started at 7:22 pace and progressed down to 6:20 pace.  Felt pretty good and nice to be outside.

7 miles

Wow! I can't believe what a busy week I just had.  After our kids wrestling camp I was fortunate enough to run an general aerobic pace 7 miles to Huffman and back with some extra.  It was still warm outside, but windy.  Feels great to be out in fresh air!

7 miles

Ran an easy 7 before the all day parent teacher conferences.  Kept it easy and I felt really good.

10 miles (4 @ Tempo?)

Had a good workout today in my hot garage.  I was just gonna run an easy 10, but I wanted to turn the legs over for awhile.  I haven't done any workouts since my marathon.  This wasn't really tempo pace just slightly slower, but the heat made up for the slower pace.  Felt good and it was fun!  The first 6 miles started at 7:30 pace that eventually  progressed down to 6:30 pace. Then I did the last 4 miles  @ (6:00, 5:56, 5:52, 5:49).  I lost a lot of water!

6 miles

I was able to fit in my run during lunch today.  Just an easy pace for the majority of it. Felt really good and wanted to run longer.

7 miles (10 x 100m striders)

Easy pace to Huffman and back and I through in some striders at the end.  I just feel like I haven't turned my legs over much since my last marathon.  I don't really want to start doing workouts yet, but I believe these striders are good.

I was able to sleep in a little till 7:30am.  I was also able to make breakfast and have some coffee while watching a little tv before I had to drop taelynn off at dance.  I ran my south loop in the rain and I kept it easy, but felt really good today.  Nice to get outside and just run easy.

13 miles

Great run this morning.  Woke up early and was out the door by 7:45am and it was still dark.  I love running when the sun is just starting to come up.  Started off easy, but was around 6:10 pace toward the end.  Nice to get the run done before work too.

7 miles

Easy pace after our IN-SERVICE day at work.  Turned out to be pretty nice outside.  Ran to Huffman and back and added another mile, because it felt so good to be outside and running.

10 miles

Decided I'd run 10 miles on 10/10!  Ran my south loop today right after work.  It was cool with light rain, but I felt pretty good.  Upper body felt a little heavy and my arms were tired.  Averaged 6:43 pace for the run.  Nice to be outside though.

7 miles

Started at 7:30 pace and progressed down to 6:30 pace.  Kept it easy and felt great.

7 miles

Raining and blowing 70+ mph outside this morning. Ran on the treadmill before work. Felt good to get it done.

7 miles

Nice run before work this morning.  I'm really enjoying these morning runs in the dark!  Felt pretty good too.  I did some lifting and my leg routine as well.

Another easy pace to Dearmoun and back.  Nice cool fall morning.  Leaves were falling and it was peaceful.  Felt really good too.

6 miles

An easy pace to Huffman and back. Loving this fall.  I also did my 1st ever HOT YOGA session.  I really enjoyed it.  It was very challenging though.  I want to add something to my running with this yoga.  Hope to gain some core strength and flexibility.  Looking forward to next session.

13 miles

Ran my Boston prep route today after work.  It was so BEAUTIFUL out today.  Sunny and warm.  I have to enjoy these days while I can. Started at 7:25 pace and progressed down to 6:15 pace.  Averaged 6:38 pace for the entire run.  My right hip flexor was way better than yesterday!  Looking forward to the weekend.

8 miles

Ran to Dearmoun and back after work today.  My right hip flexor wasn't very happy during the day and during my run.  I usually can run through it and after it warms up it feels good.  It got better, but still an annoying pain during the run.  Need to pay attention to it.

7 miles

Easy 7 on the mille today.  Felt pretty good.  My right hip flexor was a little tight, but after an easy mile it warmed up.  I foamed rolled for awhile after today too.

6 miles

Sucked it up and got it done during lunch today.  Kept it easy!  Did my leg exercises too.

6 miles

Another awesome and beautiful fall day in Anchorage.  I was able to get out on the hillside trails by Service and run easy.
