5mi. Just home from a great weekend away in Boston, it was time to tell the stories. Both warmup and cooldown miles were spent recalling the weekend's high points and answering questions. Today was breezy from the east. I ran with Janet, sometimes Atilla and always behind Seth. 1mi warmup jog 300m w/100m recovery 500m w/100m … Continue reading Still in the street.
5mi. The "prescribed" workout for pre-marathon Thursday is run the track session at half speed or do 6 - 800m intervals at marathon pace. Not today! I ran the familiar workout next to Attila, we were going faster than I would have but with no problems or strain. My breath was taxed, but it recovered … Continue reading Off the usual

I know it will be clear but wet when I arrive, so no delays - it's off to the run. 1 … Continue reading Sometimes there’s no noticeable change
5mi. How do I show up for an outdoor track workout and go through the whole thing feeling as if even while running, there is no breeze. Like I was indoors? The blast of full-summer humidity is back, and it gets light very early in the process of covering 3 miles of intervals. I was … Continue reading As still as the indoors
Today we had many runners, kids, first-timers and people we haven't seen in awhile. Erica and Keith, Jen Davis, plenty of folks that used to come every week. Paul was away so Franci's workout was the guide... 1 mi warmup jog 200m w/200m recovery 200m w/200m recovery 400m w/200m recovery 800m w/200m recovery 800m w/200m … Continue reading Franci leads
