Looking Back – Week Ending August 30, 2020

A week in review I am going to start doing more of them, because it seems that I am writing daily running log entries less and less, so a quick catch-up at the end of the week is something that I probably need to make happen. Favorite photo from last week: The weather broke and we are enjoying fall-like weather and yes, I am loving … Continue reading Looking Back – Week Ending August 30, 2020

At the Bottom Looking Up – RunLog August 27, 2020

I subscribe to The Positive Split by Peter Bromka and his “Fear of getting fit” this morning, hit closer to home than I wanted to admit when I first read it. While it is nice to know that he and most likely many other runners share some of the same meandering thoughts about regaining our running fitness after injury, life getting in the way or … Continue reading At the Bottom Looking Up – RunLog August 27, 2020

The Winds of Change – RunLog August 26, 2020

After the storm came through yesterday, it changed the weather completely. This morning I woke up to 54*F, very little humidity and some pretty good breezes. By the time I ran it had warmed up to 61*F, but the breeze had picked up a bit too. In other words it was a great morning for running. I did the ChiPose pre-run stuff and then decided … Continue reading The Winds of Change – RunLog August 26, 2020

The New Routine – RunLog August 25, 2020

Okay a day and a dollar short again, but here is yesterday’s workout. ๐Ÿ™‚ I figured out how I want to start the new non-running routine and am going to go with ChiPose stuff on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Strength work on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, with Sundays being left as a free day to do whatever to hell I want (rest, long run, short run, … Continue reading The New Routine – RunLog August 25, 2020

Soreness is Positive – RunLog August 24, 2020

Most people equate stiffness and soreness with pain and discomfort, for me and well…other who run, workout and all that kind of stuff, tend to think that there is a huge difference. Stiffness and soreness tell me that I had a good workout yesterday or earlier that Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) thang, whereas pain and discomfort are warning signs that something is not right. … Continue reading Soreness is Positive – RunLog August 24, 2020

Thinking Too Much and a Good Workout – RunLog August 23, 2020

Focus, Focus, Focus. Right now that is what I need to do, focus on the process to help me become not so much a better runner, but more to become a less fragile runner. Which means doing the work beyond getting out the door and putting one foot in front of the other. The getting out the door usually is not an issue, all too … Continue reading Thinking Too Much and a Good Workout – RunLog August 23, 2020

Day 1 of The Harold Running Plan – runLog August 22, 2020

Today’s run was a good 4.0 miler, in my Beacon v2s #2 where the upper legs didn’t feel too bad, but they are still bothering more than I want them too. However, progress is being made and they are getting better, so I am happy with that. It feels good to be running with the aches and pains being the usual ones versus something new … Continue reading Day 1 of The Harold Running Plan – runLog August 22, 2020

Chi-Pose or Pose-Chi with A Splash of Dicharry on the Side

The worst thing about everything that is going on – all those “black swan” events that seem to be raging around us…well for me at least, is that I have even more difficulty focusing on writing and working at controlling the things that I can control. I don’t believe that I am alone with these thoughts, mood swings and the inability to focus on the … Continue reading Chi-Pose or Pose-Chi with A Splash of Dicharry on the Side
