Sleepy day...
Tuesday, June 02, 2020      1 comments

I haven't been sleeping the best lately (which is a small thing in the grand scheme of things so I'm not complaining), but I still awoke earlyish and realized I was done sleeping for the day. So I had my coffee, got some work in, and then went o... Read more
The sun still rises...

Another bad night in Philly - in parts farther removed from me than yesterday. But... the sun still rose, the sky was blue, the weather was perfect, people were running, people were walking dogs... And, always, always, healthcare workers we... Read more
Sad days, cathartic run...

I ran through the oldest part of Philly today. I forget how much history there is sometimes. I ran by Ms Ross's place - she was having some work done last week but it appears to be done. Maybe they fixed her A/C. Hopefully, she can reopen her gi... Read more
Still slooooow and easy...

BEAUTIFUL day today - BLUE BLUE BLUE sky, sunshine, lower humidity and temperature than yesterday, beautiful river with the sun glinting on it, just enough breeze to refresh, greenery all the way, ... I started out slow to "baby" the muscle... Read more
Getting a little further back in, still slow & easy...

Still discomfort, but definitely improved on the muscle pull front. Slow & easy was the rule, but I was able to run steadily for 6.25 miles. And I got to spend some time along the middle part of my Delaware River Trail haunts - some of the ... Read more
Getting back into it, slow & easy...

Today's effort was an unexpected success. I started out walking, but started mixing into a very slow run/jog/shuffle pattern. As I went farther, I was able to increase the run segments without extra discomfort to my pulled muscle. Yay. It felt s... Read more
Late check-in...

I ordinarily check in earlier, but I got deep into work and didn't want to take a break, so I just kept it going. All in all a productive day there - and I'm very happy to have gotten better at focusing ON WORK and putting in an acceptable amoun... Read more
Whoopsie Ouchie Walkies Kind of Day!

Soo... The muscle pull (I think that's what it was - one of my intercostal muscles in my left ribcage) I suffered during my fall at the end of Sunday's virtual 50K really doesn't seem as bad as the two I've had in the past. On the other han... Read more
Well, that was unexpected... in more ways than one!

I didn't just get up with my alarm (well, lights - my "alarm" is to turn on the lights in my bedroom, which never fails to wake me but is also less jarring than an audible alarm), I beat it! Out of bed by 4:15am and out to start my Virtual 50K a... Read more
Resting up...
Saturday, May 23, 2020      1 comments

I hadn't decided yet if I wanted to continue with the monthly virtual 50K challenge after doing my first in April (in the same weekend that my "real world" 50K had been scheduled), but... It seems a shame not to at least try. I've been looking a... Read more
10 miles!
Friday, May 22, 2020      0 comments

A nice cloudy morning and a delayed rain forecast led me to venture out... the beauty of the day and view (running along the Delaware River) led me to venture farther, and I ended up with 10 well-paced miles instead of the 6 easy run/walk I was ... Read more
Puttin' on the racing flats!

I had a lovely day of self-care (and no running) yesterday and all my gadgets, as well as my body, agreed this morning that I had an awesome night's sleep. The temperatures were high 40s, and it was sunny with only moderate wind. So of cour... Read more
Self-care day!
Wednesday, May 20, 2020      2 comments

Well, assuming "self-care" involves coffee, eggs with cheese, ham, sausage, toast... I was up early enough to do a run, but... I was feel a bit tired and since I'd been thinking of an extra day off this week anyway, that decided me. No run ... Read more
Back to Penn Treaty Park on a Windy Day
Tuesday, May 19, 2020      0 comments

Double digit wind from ENE dictated my route today. If there's appreciable wind, I like to do the first half into it so I'll have wind at my back on the way home. So, NE I went - east toward the Delaware River and north toward the Race St access... Read more
Mondays are for Active Recovery!
Monday, May 18, 2020      0 comments

Well, not that I'd hesitate to change the plan at the drop of a hat, but I did decide to stick to my normal weekly routine and give myself a day off running today. To avoid total vegetation for the day, though, I decided to do some active recove... Read more
