Grew up outside Chicago and joined the blog while I lived in Salt Lake City. Now living outside Birmingham. I am married with two daughters. Wife thinks I'm crazy for doing marathons. And yes I am crazy I'm a scientist for a living...

Southerly run on own. Out and back. The wind had died down and it wasn't too cold. Overall felt good. Did almost exactly the same pace as yesterday although this was outside and on a hilly course.

AM: 2-A-Day, decided to cut the run in half when faced with the wind this morning. I know I'm a wimp. Slept better last night.

3mi Avg. 8:21 HR 146

PM:  It is so great to actually be working in some workouts instead of just sanity running. Although it was much nicer out this evening I jumped on the treadmill. I did my favorite acceleration run. Start at 8mpm then increase 0.1mph every 0.1mi. I did that down to 6mpm then every 0.5 mi until the last mile where it was every 0.1mi again. If you are still reading kudus. The long and short of it is that I did 5 mi in 32:05 starting at 8:00 and finishing at 5:22.

5mi Avg. 6:25 maxHR 186 (no average on my treadmill)

AM: Long day so far. Only time for a commute run. Solid experiments from 7:30am-12:30pm. Then on to the computer for analysis...

PM: Had a much better day overall than yesterday. These evening run was very "foggy" though. Both in the weather and in my head. Did a southerly loop with John.

Since I only had computer work today, I opted to change around my schedule and work from home. Started on the computer until my wife had dropped the girls off at school and then went for the Suicide Loop run with her. It had been a very long time since just the two of us had run together. The weather more or less behaved and it was a good run. Now back to typing...

Only time for the commute run. It was nice working from home yesterday but that does cause a few odds 'n ends to pile up...

Woke up early and went for a nice morning loop. About half way through got to see a very nice sunrise. It is nice to be back in the half century club... Back in time to make waffles with my youngest.
