  • Day467 slow week

    Maybe it is a pattern that after a big race, there is a big let down immediately after. I have been in a slump the last two weeks. My ability to run shouldn’t be a limiting factor, but my life has been hectic and what not. It got so bad that I haven’t run for […]

  • Day445 Fall Classic 10K

    I have been doing a lot of longer runs and while they are fun, sometimes running a shorter race is a break in the routine one needs. I was originally going to go up to Philadelphia for their trail marathon race. I have been contemplating and maybe was even agonizing a little over it. Those […]

  • Day376 small run

    I had one of the best runs last night. It was just 10k. Just nice distance. I ran too many long miles and those were slugfest. I like short and fast runs. It felt fast to me though the time showed otherwise. I felt I ran the fastest ever. Zoom Zoom. Due to corona virus, […]

  • November, bye bye

    Day 201 Last day of the month. I had nothing to do today. It has been quiet in my life. No trip no run. I have spent my day reading on my own journals! I reread my last race report at least 4 times. I have been reading other people reports too. I love it. […]

  • Parks 10K

    Day 189 Fidelity Investments Parks 10K is one of races I run each year. Each year as far as I can remember, the weather was cold. We started at 8AM. The sun was already up and started to warm up a bit but I think the temperature is still uncomfortably cold in tees and shorts. […]

    Day 171 Guilty pleasure – icecream The weekend wasn’t as intense as I had anticipated. My training fizzled out due to my own undoing. I ran on Friday, but my quad wasn’t healing properly and pain shot out after about 8 or 10 miles. I was going to do 20. Any way, I started the […]

  • Good weekend

    Day 163 Sunday came and went and I did everything that was needed. Nothing too spectacular to write about except that I did all my runs. It was a good weekend, with a morning 10k race, then made it to church worship (plus Sunday School – Adult Bible Fellowship) which orginally, I thought I wouldn’t […]

  • Intensity

    Day 115 I came across a training article. The concept is pretty simple and logical, but it occurs to me that it is an important truth that I have overlooked. The concept is we train in three phases. The first is foundation. We build a good foundation and hopefully the last three years, I had […]

  • Thinking

    Day 98 I am still thinking how did I run a minute faster than my normal 10K time on yesterday race. It was an out and back course. The map showed km 4 to 5 is shorter than km 5-6, where the turn around point was. I don’t think I cut the course, because I […]

  • Bluemont running

    Day 97 – race A quiet weekend and it is just what I like. No big plan. I woke up and went to a local 10K race. It is about a hour from home. I ran a good time here every year. This was my third. While at the course, I didn’t have good vibe […]
