ok 6.5

Got in a late morning run before it got too hot. 6.5km at an average pace. That is better than I expected as I still had soreness and my last run was about 12 hours ago...

not bad 6.5

Solid but slow run, pretty good for a Motzash run. Ankle fwelt a little tender and my leg muscles were still sort from Friday's "lng" run, but I had a good solid slow 6.5km run tonight with little of the regular discomfort and issues I have on most Saturday night runs

good 11

I didnt know how much I wanted to run. Was hoping for at least 10, had a pipe dream of maybe getting close to 14-15, but knew that was not really realistic as I havent even run close to that in a long time. And it is hot.

Anyways, I had a good run. I felt a little more tired and worn out, partly from the heat, than I had expected. I ran 11, though I felt I could have extended it to 12 or maybe even 13, but those last km would definitely have been more shuffling and not good quality, as I was getting worn out, and I decided not to bother.

So, I finished at 11km, at a good pace

hot 5

I knew it was hot. Hottest point of a heat wave we are going through. But I wanted to go out for a run anyway. I knew because of the heat that I would be limited to 5km, and probably a slow run.

I ran 5km, but it was reasonably fast. The first 3km were very fast, like yesterday's pace. The last 2km were slower, about average pace - still fast for a crazy hot day, but much slower than the first 3km. I finished with a fast pace, but not a crazy fast pace. The last 2km were tough and I really felt beaten by the heat by then

great 5

after a week and a half of not running, I finally got back to it today. It was hot and humid but I had a great 5km run.

I went out with no expectations, just wanting to get back into it and start stretching out my legs again. I ended up with a really fast run. During the run i felt solid the entire time. Not wanting to overdo it, plus it was hot and humid, I decided to limit the run to 5km

good 10

I was feeling good after a nap due to a few late nights this week, so I went out int eh heat. I was feeling good so I pushed the run to 10km even though the uphills were difficult and I struggled on them. My final pace was fast end of average, though that was only because of the uphills. The regular terrain had me at a pretty fast pace. Overall a good run, but could have been better.

nice 10

This has been an overall slow running week, even with decent distance. I expected another slow run today. I forced myself to not run yesterday and was going to take off today as well to give my legs another day of rest, and they were feeling tired. But, it was not meant to be and I felt the need to go out/ I was hoping for an 8km run, but resigned to 5 or 6 if I would feel too tired to continue.

Overall I felt good, though not speedy. My overall pace was at the fast end of average. I combined parts of a couple different routes after seeing that i was running ok, I figured I can probably get more than 8, so I finished at 10

slow 8

that was much hotter than I expected. I wanted 8 and got 8, but it was a struggle - especially the second half. Slow pace, but I made it to 8.

slow 6.5

Today was a slow run, but I did it and did more than planned.

I knew it would be slow. Everything felt slow. It took a while to get out, body was not reacting well, etc. Two days of overeating and poor sleep schedules did not help. I skipped running last night thinking it would be a disaster and waiting until today would be a little better. It probably was a little better, but not by much.

I expected to run 5, thinking that is more than enough torture for a lousy run, just wanting to get through it. Sure enough, besides for being slow and a little uncomfortable, overall I felt ok and the run itself did not feel laborious. So despite having planned to stop at 5, I kept going until 6.5.

fab 12

I went out not knowing what to expect. I wanted a longer run than I have had recently, but I also did not know if I would have any lingering pain or discomfort from the other day. Also, while I have been running faster recently, it has only been tested on relatively short runs, between 5 and 8 kilometers. I have not run long in a while and I do not know if I could keep up that pace on a longer run.

I started my run and was feeling pretty god. I was getting a good pace, but not super fast. As I approached the 5km mark I was still feeling great and strong and decided I would head out of RBS and try for 12. I was not sure if the last 3 or 4 kilometers would be at a decent pace, as the first 5 were already at a relatively fast pace, but I knew I could get the distance.

The run was really good. I went out on the 10 (3855), ran to the 375 and back, and then down Rabbi Auerbach st back to Luz, Hayarqon, Kishon and back home finishing at 12km. The uphill sections were a little slow, but the flats and downs were at a fast pace, so overall I finished 12km at a fast pace.

eh 5

Went out for a run but was in pain. left foot, and in addition my right knee felt a little wonky. Not sure what's wrong. First three kilometers were at a pretty good pace but then I slowed down as the pain was not going away. Finished at an average pace. Cut it short at 5km

pretty good 5.5

Had a pretty good 5.5km run this morning. Felt pretty good. Felt a little pain in the left foot at the beginning and thought of bailing but after about half a kilometer it went away so i continued. A couple of important calls in the middle derailed me a bit but I still finished with a pretty fast pace. Would have run more but was on time constraints

Motzash 5

After a few days of no running, I finally got back to it tonight. It wasnt a great run, being Motzash and all, but it was relatively solid, if slowish.

I forgot to turn my watch on (I actually thought I had started it on but in the middle of my run I saw it was still not recording the run) so while I know I ran 5km based on the route, I have no idea what speed/pace I ran at. All I know is that it felt a bit slowish.
