Just did a slow 8 miler... Need to get me some motivation. Seriously thinking about doing Phoenix, if only to try and go sub 2:40. The question is.... can I do it in two months of training?

I did. I am actually back ON THE WAGON. The running wagon that is. I did 10 tonight, in pitch black condidtions. the pace was not much to talk about, maybe 8:00's I cant tell since there is no mile markers in any of these damn Boston trails. But it was slow. However, it was inspiring: I managed to berate some old lady on a bike who had the audacity to ask me to move over...

At any rate I was pumped as i found out that article about Coach's training methods which featured me as the proverbial "Boy Wonder" aka "The Freak that went from 8:30's to 6:15's in 2 years" somehow got printed in the New England Sports, the local version of Windy City Sports. So now I'm not only midwest famous, but world famous. Take that!

Anyway, you boys better get in gear 'cause I will school yous in the Turkey Trot!


By the way I added some images from the last Harvard party I attended. Note the wine spills in the front of the pin~ata shirt, as well as the sweat stains... Classy huh?

Bad trend starting

No running on Thursday. Brutal. This is how is happened to me last winter. Missing one workout leads to more easily skipping the next. Ugh.

Against The Wind

Man it was cold and windy this morning. Somehow Sweeny and I still managed to run 8 miles with 4 @ LT pace. The 4 miles were with the wind, so it was a highly assisted sub 6:15 pace. I'll take it any way I can get it. Secretly, I was hoping noone would show up and I would go back to bed. Now that it is all said and done, I am glad we did it.

Hey Muffin-Top. Keep that training up. You don't want Chris and I to school you.

First Tempo Workout

Wednesday was my first tempo workout of the Boston 07 training season.

Total: 6 Mi | Tempo: 4 Mi | Avg Tempo Pace: 6:28/Mi

Hey there. this is not the way i envisioned starting this, but I have not run in one week, and the muffin top is returning. On the other hand, I just got an email from CARA about the Fastest Male Award, so i should be motivated... Hopefully I can get my ass in gear in the next few days. Tomorrow I will try to run a few miles.
