  • Day341 reality

    I have to accept the reality that to run back across Tennessee (virtually) within two weeks is out of reach for me in my condition. I had the ambitious goal of doing 250 miles this week and another 250 miles the next. I have ‘slowly’ trying to bring my miles up from 5 miles to […]

  • Day304 feeling defeated

    I am feeling a bit deflated. Maybe it is just a natural progression after a long weekend trip. I drove up to PA to meet with couple guys who were running a section of the Laurel Highlands Trail. None of the people in my group was running the whole thing that day but after I […]

  • Day302 crawling

    The day is crawling by. I was caught in the rain last night. I got my move back and ran 10 miles. It started raining at mile 5 and I had to head back. I checked the forecast then and it was showing the heaven is going open up. So I took shelter in the […]

  • bit of everything

    Day 238 I am a bit sleepy so I will try to make this quick. I feel if I don’t write something, I might never get to it. This weekend is everything I want it to be. I totally exhausted myself. I did a 50K on Saturday (the full report will hopefully available some day). […]

  • Random Friday sort-of

    Day 233 / weekend A plug for my friend Isaiah Day who started this blog Player Development for athletes. I am anticipating his interview with an ultra distance runner next Tuesday 3/3 @10:00 ET. More info about the interview can be found on his group Facebook page. ah…it is hard to link to FB. Other […]

  • 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 […]

  • weekly run summary

    Day 225 I ran 56 miles last week Monday: usually rest day, I rested Tuesday: 4-ish miles with the group. I showed up in three layer shirt and did not realize it was 60 (15 C). Hot night. Wednesday: rest night Thursday: group run canceled because of rain and no one showed up. I ran […]

  • running summary

    Day 222 It felt good to be able to do long runs. I ran the same routes as in previous weekend. Many thoughts passed through my head. What gave me hard time while running two miles last July, now seemed like nothing at all. I was amazed after running even 16 miles and did not […]

  • Should be back in shape

    Day 221 I should be back in shape. Not yet at peak condition but should be ready to tackle some hard training this weekend and the next few weekends. I have not put together a solid plan. Actually I prepared one while I was still in Chile in December, but since coming back with 5-6 […]

  • Lazy weekend

    Day 195 I had a lazy weekend. I did a small 9 miles hike up to Old Rag on Saturday. It took whole day but it was not because the hike was hard but because we had to wait at several times before we could ascend in the crowded section. We might have lost couple […]
