    Hey, look. I'm running.

    Glad to hear you're back running. I know strength/cross training is no fun, but I figure if it helps keep me running it is worth it.

    Starting up. Slowing down.

    Unfortunately being a little bit hurt when we are older is alot different than being a little bit hurt when we were younger.
  3. Your run savvy and experience shows (not to mention craziness); great self pacing for both the 50K and 5K.
  4. Great improvement! I always nice to when you get that feeling of running stronger and easier.

    RR: The 2020 Run Thru Hell

    Congratulations on being Army Ranger Strong! According to my new issue of Reader's Digest, running 5 miles under 40 minutes is one of the requirements for becoming an Army Ranger.

    Smart, run by feel race, especially after not racing for a while. It also sounds like you're ready to ramp up your training for that fall Marathon.

    Good for you. It's good to get out and run some place different after running the same routes all the time, with our races being cancelled. From your past race summaries I believe this race has a pretty hilly course. Good luck and enjoy the change in scenery.

    exercise in moderation

    Pretty cool to be able just drive up to a trail head/spot and to backpack into a remote lake and fish.

    And there went July

    I really miss the social interaction of my group runs, although my group has re-started group runs I am not comfortable participating yet. I have tried more focus on being mindful during my runs and focusing on the moment, enjoying the run, and being thankful that I am able to run. I am currently re-reading Mackenzie L. Harvey's book Mindful Running to better focus on my breathing, and environment during the run and not think about other things.

    Running in Grand Haven

    I have slowlyyyyyyyyyyyy started back running after recovering from my hip injury. I have been running 4 days a week for the last couple of weeks for 15 miles total each week, with my long now 5 miles. I running slow and easy to build up my strength averaging about 10 minute miles with my heart rate getting closer to my easy effort rate. The week of July 19th I was on vacation with my wife and 2 daughters, and we went to Grand Haven, MI to a place we have renting every summer for the last 15 years or so. This is one of my favorite places to go on vacation, as it has all the a
  11. Sounds like your training is going great, maybe eliminating the speed work was key to being able to run more days a week. Good luck at the St. George Marathon and a BQ.

    I love Colorado.

    My family has done a couple of escape rooms; one in Chicago, and one in Ferndale and enjoyed them. It is great that they both had way of getting you audio hints when you get stuck. I found that you really have to pay close attention to what the clues say when solving them.

    In a pandemic time warp

    My goal, and what I find some comfort in is to follow a consistent daily morning routine. When I get up in the morning I do a combination of stretching, mild strength, balance, and breathing exercises that takes me about 30 minutes, which I do mostly for injury prevention for plantar fasciitis and achilles tendinitis which I have had problems with multiple times . I guess that completing this routine daily adds something that is consistent in my life and that things will be alright today during these crazy times.

    Joyful June

    Thanks for mentioning the Running with Sherman book by Christopher McDougall. I have enjoyed reading two of his books; "Born to Run" and "Natural Born Hero's". I was able to reserve the Sherman book at my local library even though they are not admitting people, they are doing drive by pickups, which is pretty cool.

    the new thing

    I hope you are feeling better. I had heard about Dr John's personal story of having heart problems resulting for excessive bicycling in a interview on the pod cast of the "The Natural Running Network". I was concerned enough that I ordered his book: " The Haywire Heart", but alas I have had a hard time finishing it as is hard read for me with all the technical detail that he goes into about how the heart is affected by excessive exercise and how the heart responds.
