It’s Too Far

Walking An Extra 4 Miles…

….So you can lactate with the wind at your back.

The run on today’s menu was 12 miles with 7 miles at a lactate threshold pace (7:40-8:00 min/miles for us). Terrifying you ask? Absolutely!

I was not looking forward to this run and after the warm up with legs still sore and angry from running […]

The Trance : A Different View

Well Well.


After reading Bob’s post about the new Brooks Trance 6 that came out with a 90 day guarantee I couldn’t (apparently turn it down). I went to Running Away in Chicago which is a really nice running shoe store, and they had the shoe in my size. It felt […]

Weekend Roundup

Amazingly, our weekend consisted mainly of: running working

I know, I know, you don’t believe me. And I can’t blame you since, I’m sure, you expected me to write something more along the lines of: drinking partying partying and drinking

But this was one of those rare weeks where we were really busy and were […]

Book Report x 2

Hello all, although it took me awhile to get through In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, I made up for that slowness for getting through another book in one day yesterday, so here are two for your enjoyment :

When I started reading this book Jason was on shift and I was home […]

The Bloomington Report

Well Jason and I are back in good old Chicago. We had a wonderful couple of days in Bloomington, IN full of physics, running, drinking and seeing of old friends.

We decided to push our runs back a day, after again not sleeping much on Monday night because we were at work for a ridiculous […]

I Am A Big Cheater

Alright. Alright. I cheated.

I didn’t do my 15 mile run with 12 at pace. There I said it. I am somewhat upset about missing it, but my work schedule and sleep schedule and “I don’t want to make myself sick” schedule did not allow for it. I was going to try and do the […]


Well that’s just fine. Yesterday Jason and I woke up at 9…..let me go back.

On Saturday morning Jason and I got up at 2:30am to go see my old roommate compete in her first triathlon. It was so much fun, but needless to say we didn’t get much sleep. We both slept a bit […]

Slow, Sore, and Slurpeelicious

Sometimes it’s just really hard to go slow on a recovery run. Other times, it’s just really necessary.

We went a modest six miles as slowly as we could possibly manage, which was really pretty slow. We plodded along for the first two and a half miles, but after we stopped for water and to […]

All Over The Map

Today was a 14 mile run which we started at about 6:30pm. Although we paced 9:06 miles for the whole run we were all over the map with some miles at 8:30ish or less and others around 10 minutes, although the longer miles usually included some water/stretching.

I just said to myself, “We ran 14 […]
