Re-Emerging – Tuesday – June 8, 2021

Today’s Focus Run efficiently Planned Workout Description:  Workout: 30:00 Minute Recovery Run Purpose: To recover from the harder effort in yesterday’s run. It will be hotter and muggier than yesterday, so I need to run slow this morning, and I also will focus on running tall and landing quietly instead of slouching or slapping my feet. “Know what specific skills you are aiming to improve … Continue reading Re-Emerging – Tuesday – June 8, 2021

Moving Away from Running Shoe Reviews

During this latest Achilles injury, I have had time to think about my relationship with running shoes, writing reviews and I asked myself: Do I want to review running shoes on my blog? Should I run in as many different brands/styles of running shoes in the future? What brand has worked the best for me? What kind of running shoes do I run most comfortably … Continue reading Moving Away from Running Shoe Reviews

RunLog – Thursday – May 13, 2021

Planned Workout Description:  Do an easy 1-mile run to warm up and to see how the Achilles is progressing today. If the Achilles isn’t too grumpy, do 10 x 2:00 minutes running, with 2:00 minutes walking, with a 5:00 minute walking cool-down—easy effort level on the run portions. Warm-up: My minimum warm-up is the leg swing routine x 20, 40 air squats, 100-ups before running, and … Continue reading RunLog – Thursday – May 13, 2021

A Little Progress is Good News – RunLog 5/10/21

Today was my first run in quite a while. I ran for almost 25:00 consecutive minutes with just a short pause at the top of Stevens Hill to catch a breath before finishing where the tar starts about 200 yards from the upper gate. Which is progress! The leg is coming along slowly but surely, and I think that the ASICS Evoride 2s that I … Continue reading A Little Progress is Good News – RunLog 5/10/21

Run #2 in the Rehab Cycle – RunLog 4/26/21

The winds keep coming pretty steady around 20 mph, with gusts just a tad higher at times. I braved them to get out and do my 16 x 1:00 with 2:00 recoveries rehab workout this morning. I was looking forward to this run, so a bit of wind wouldn’t stop me from getting out the door, especially with the sun shining. However, I was happy … Continue reading Run #2 in the Rehab Cycle – RunLog 4/26/21

First Run New Balance 1080 v10 – RunLog 3/13/21

My first run in the New Balance 1080 v10 was this morning. So how did it go? Good is what I will say, just good. I am still recovering from the after-affects of the COVID-19 vaccination from Thursday and not back to 100% yet, but feeling a lot better than I did yesterday. So I was not 100% ready to run, but I couldn’t wait … Continue reading First Run New Balance 1080 v10 – RunLog 3/13/21

Nike React Miler – 50 Mile Review

This post was written for and first appeared on Harold being Harold. The Nike React Miler, a shoe that came out in 2020, is new, at least compared to my usual shoe reviews, although version 2’s release is imminent. Why these running shoes? Early in February, I was having a lot of problems with my right foot. As a result of those foot problems, I … Continue reading Nike React Miler – 50 Mile Review

It’s Better to Wait Until Later – RunLog 2/17/21

We were lucky and unlike so many places, didn’t lose power. Especially, those places that are not equipped, setup for, or used to having to deal with this nasty weather. I hope they get the power situation back online sooner and that life will get back to their normal. This weather certainly isn’t normal for those down South. Yesterday Yes, it was a snowblower workout … Continue reading It’s Better to Wait Until Later – RunLog 2/17/21

Nike React Miler – Initial Thoughts

I wanted a great winter running shoe, not just another trail shoe that would do triple duty as a walking shoe, winter road running shoe, and trail shoe. Something that could: Handle some snow, slush, and nasty weather, but still, be good on dry tar or dirt. A multi-purpose outsole Breathability is not a big deal. Keeping the feet warmish and mostly dry was more … Continue reading Nike React Miler – Initial Thoughts
