100% Humidity Made it Interesting – RunLog July 3, 2020

I knew that this run was going to be tough, the humidity takes it toll on me, more than it used to, but the temps were decent, it was overcast or a light mist at times, so I figured 5.0 miles would be about as far as I would want to go today. The Run Planned run and focus: Middle Road Loop and strides after. … Continue reading 100% Humidity Made it Interesting – RunLog July 3, 2020

Last Run in GlideRides for a While – RunLog May 28, 2020

After yesterday’s run, the GlideRides have over 200 miles on them and since I have been having increasing issues with my ankles every time I wear them. Therefore, I have decided to put the GlideRides in the back of the garage for a month or two to see if the ankle issues clear up. Then decide what to do with them at that time. You … Continue reading Last Run in GlideRides for a While – RunLog May 28, 2020

ASICS GlideRide – 200 Mile Review – Not What I Expected

The ASICS GlideRide is probably the closest I will get to a super shoe this year and it is one that is becoming a bit of an enigma for me. As I go over 200 miles in them, they are showing a bit of a split personality. The first 175 miles or so, I was in love with the GlideRides. They were doing everything that … Continue reading ASICS GlideRide – 200 Mile Review – Not What I Expected

Mosquitoes and Humidity – RunLog May 27, 2020

Okay, the mosquitoes have hatched around us and the dragonflies have not, so for a while the little winged terrors have unmatched superiority of the skies. Nasty little buggers they are too this year. However, with the high humidity (for Maine) when you swat one on an exposed skin part, it stays there as a trophy to your skill as a mosquito hunter, to go … Continue reading Mosquitoes and Humidity – RunLog May 27, 2020

Memorial Day, Overcast & Breezy – RunLog May 25, 2020

May everyone be safe and remember Memorial Day as something more than a day to party hearty. Remember those who have served and especially those who did not come home alive to their families and friends. They and their families paid the ultimate sacrifice. Writing about my running on Memorial Day feels kind of awkward in some ways because it would not seem to many … Continue reading Memorial Day, Overcast & Breezy – RunLog May 25, 2020

Pepin Test Course – RunLog May 22, 2020

One thing about all this pandemic stuff going on is that while I do have a schedule, at times remembering what day it actually kind of slips away to something that ain’t all that important – other than it is Friday which means a shorter, but something with a faster element thrown into the run at some point or a course time trial. I know … Continue reading Pepin Test Course – RunLog May 22, 2020

Middle Road Plus – RunLog May 15, 2020

Today is about as perfect as it gets for running in my opinion. Low ’50s, slight breeze, cloudy, decent humidity, with a few raindrops here or there, and this all meant shorts/t-shirt. Enough so, I was very tempted to wear the Razor 3s again today and go for a faster run. However, the plan and the body called for a comfortable run based on effort, … Continue reading Middle Road Plus – RunLog May 15, 2020
