  • Day394 oho the 3rd 50k

    A few weeks ago I mentioned about running the 50K fatass on Bull Run Trail with the Virginia Happy Trail people, or do a 50K on Waterfall Mountain (also their trail), or join a guy running on the W&OD trail (Day391). In the end, I didn’t do any of those that weekend (Day392). But then […]

  • Day291 Long run to high school

    [long post] Back about a month ago, I went on ‘a walk‘, which was really a long run but I was very under-motivated at a time and was too ashamed to call it a run. All my races were being canceled at the time and my training for my biggest race of the year (June […]

  • Day278 Fairfax County Parkway Run

    Run yesterday 62; GVRAT total 149 Last couple weeks I ran north on the County Parkway to Reston. Yesterday I decided to run south, since the starting of where I entered the highway is at mile marker 26. I figured if I run south, I would have a marathon distance. Doing an out and back […]

  • day264 week summary

    It’s Week 13 or something. About 7 more weeks left before my race if there is one. Total is around 25-30 miles something. It is much much less than I want, but what do I do? I am sorely distracted by the coronavirus as you can tell from my previous posts. Monday – 4. I […]

  • weekly run summary

    Day 231 This starts getting fun and I’m looking forward writing it. This would be my fifth week. I have 15 more weeks before my Laurel Highlands race. Total: 56-58 miles Monday: rest. I didn’t want to rest because the week before I only did 9 miles* (plus 20+ miles of hiking), so I had […]

  • weekend plan

    Day 230 / Long hilly run tomorrow If you don’t succeed the first time, try again. So this weekend I am heading back out to Ashby Hollow. Last time I started about 7 miles north at Snicker’s Gap and ran to Ashby Hollow before turning around. I was planning to run the whole thing, but […]

  • Long run

    Day 161 I did it! I ran my long run on Friday. My long run was supposed to be tomorrow but there are just too much going on during the weekend and the risk was high I might not be able to pull off a long run at all. Long run is usually my hardest […]

  • Leesburg 20k

    Day 157 I finished today run with ease. It was a race so that helped. I ran faster than normal training run. Twice as fast. I was not trying to win any medal though. I finished last in my age group. I was ahead of my expected time however. That is a win for me. […]

  • Middle of a long run

    Day 156 Boy is it hot! I am 7 miles into my long run and now stopped and got sidetracked here. I had my biometric taken for the TSa pre check screening. That is another story. I am not so happy to pay a load of money so that I don’t have to go through […]

  • Easter

    Day 111 I woke up early and got to church for the morning Easter worship. We were told to come early, lest there won’t be parking spots available at the layer service. Normally, I attended the night worship, but today there was neither Sunday School (they called it Adult Bible Fellowship) nor night worship. I […]
