A marathon the night before rapture
26.3 mi - 4:45:54 Awesome! I just PR’d my marathon by nearly half an hour. Too bad this is just a training run, so it is unofficial. I’ll still take it though. Now to stretch, recover and listen to some end of the world music. Grab somebody sexy, tell them HEY! Give me everything tonight…

Stand Up Desk
Sitting down all the time is not good for you (duh!). Now an infographic is making its way around that says sitting will kill you. Ok, first of all, it’s not the best infographic, and it seems to be more of a scare tactic. Anyway, my coworker and I have complained on numerous occasions about another department having a desk that can be adjusted (high enough, so you can stand while using it),...

I didn’t quite make my goal of 50 miles for the week, but I feel I did really well on my long run on Friday. I’m going to build up my long run some...
adamtdorsey asked: What do you use to track your running numbers? Just your head?
When I wake up....
Da dat da, da dat da! Holy crap, I just hit 500 miles for the year.
04/25-05/01 Recovery Week
Mon - 4.25 mi easy run (11:03 pace) Tue - 2.4 mi easy run (10:33) Wed - 5.4 mi easy run (10:11) Fri - 10.2 mi long run (9:45) Sat - 5.2 mi easy run (10:18) After a nice long run last Friday and Saturday, it was nice to take it easy for a week. I still put in a lot of milage, but it was clearly much less than the previous week. I ended up with 27.5 miles, just short of my 28 mile goal. The week...
