Today a 12 mile easy run was on the schedule. It has been a while since I did 12 miles and with my hip still acting up I was looking to make the run a comfortable and soft as possible. So what better than to take to the old trail route in Mercer County Park. Having to run a bit on tarmac I didn’t take my Salomon Speed Cross that I normally use for trail running but maybe I should … →
The wife had to go training today at Gold’s Gym, so I packed my things and went for a quiet 5 mile easy run. Man its boring to be on treadmill. Only good thing is that the cool air and low humidity kept my at a 143bmp average which was quite nice for a change. Oh: And the treadmill is easy on my bad hip! Amount of miles for this week 30.44!
Today’s run was plagued by bad timing. I should have gone out for my run early but work kept me home until 3pm. As always during the mid afternoon it was around 90 degrees and today also had a totally hysterically high humidity that I really struggled with. I bought my North Face Enduro Boa Hydration Pack which really is good for long runs in the heat, but I still struggled, being well above my 75% max heart rate that … →
After a few days in Niagara and Ithica I am back in the hood. Today run was 2 miles at marathon tempo (4:54); 4x1mile intervals at tempo pace (4;33) and then finishing off with 2 mile at marathon tempo. Looking out the windows did not vouch for an easy run as I could see dark clouds and also hear the thundering not too far away. Thus I decided to find a route that was close to the house in case … →
I didn’t feel like going for a long run today as I still felt my hip being a bit sore, so I changed my schedule so I did my normal Thursday 3 mile run today. I still felt my hip but not as much as the previous days. It is still hard staying at the marathon pace of 4:54 when I just run without looking too much at my Garmin so I ended up 4:46. But I just to keep … →
I was still in Ithica so I was a bit out of my normal territory, but that is what I like about running. You can do it almost everywhere. This was an early morning run in what was the first time in a long time where the temperature was way below the 90s. Actually it was closer to 65 (but still very humid) and just running in my shorts and t-shirt was actually a bit too cold for the day. … →
My general state starting this week was a bit on the weak side. even though I have had 5-6 weekly sessions since June, it has been a long time since I had 4 running sessions in 5 days. Furthermore my hip is still acting up a bit with some pain. But as it seems to disappear quickly during runs I better continue my training This week is basically like my week 1 except for the face that I start out … →
I signed up for the Philly marathon on November 20th, so I thought that I would keep track of my progress on the website. My goal for the marathon is 3:25 which should be doable considering my current form and previous results at 1/2 marathons. I did a 1:38 1/2 marathon in April and did a sprint triathlon in July. Monday: Since the training program wasn’t started yet, I decided to go for a bike ride instead. Just a 1 … →
I dag havde Albert Field Day på skolen. En hel dag hvor børnene mod meget sædvane rent faktisk fik løbet rundt og leget udenfor. Normalt er de ret bænket inde i klasselokalet så det var en rar forandring for en 5 årig med krudt i røven.
Anden del af spring break foregik i Virginia Beach – 6 timers kørsel syd for Princeton. Vejret var på forhånd lidt en ubekendt faktor da udsigten blev ved med at skifte, men hotellet var booket og betalt, så det var bare med at komme afsted. Heldigvis er Q7′eren et gudbenådet køretøj til lange ture og med DVD afspillere på nakkestøtten (og hovedtelefoner så de voksne ikke behøvede at høre på “De Utrolige” non-stop) til børnene gik det smertefrit. Hotellet var … →
