fabulous 12

went out for another mid-day run. Weather was once again fabulous, and the run was as well.

It was a very fast run. I started Across Kishon, the bridge to Gimmel, up through Yarmuth Park, down to Road 10, across to the 375 and then back into RBS and home. 12km at a very fast run. At the end of the run my watch congratulated me for a new record with my fastest 10km - it is not actually my fastest, but it is my fastest since running with this watch, and it is also my fastest in a very long time.

great 11

Went out for a mid-morning run. The weather was beautiful and conditions were perfect. The result was a very fast 11km run around different parts of the neighborhood. It was just such amazingly nice weather out, I could have stayed out for another hour easily just enjoying..

good 5

After a week of no running, I finally got back to it tonight. Last week I started the week with a tender hamstring, so i took a few days off, and then the weather got bad, so i just finished the week as a vacation week. I eased back into it tonight with a 5km run, and I felt good and had a tempered fast run.

great 17

got a late start so missed my long run I had planned. Instead I went out late morning and got in a 17km run at a great pace. I did not have a backup plan so just ran until I decided to stop. I did not decide how far I would run in advance.

it is interesting that running in 20 degree C funny weather felt very warm, compared to the 11-13 degree weather I generally run in at 5 or 6 in the morning, but just a couple of months ago 20 degree weather would have been a wonderful temperature to run at  compared to the 26-28 I was normally running in...

disappointing 7

I had a good fast 7km run this morning, but it felt like a struggle all the way. That is not a bad thing and is not why I called it disappointing. I called it disappointing because I was hoping for a 12 or 14km run and between timing and it feeling like a struggle even to get to 7, I just was not able to run the distance I wanted...

great 12

woke up late after a crazy busy week. I knew it was likely I would be too worn out to get my long run in, so I just figured I would play it by ear. I ended up with a fast 12km run

good 6

Had a really fast 6km run, but I only call it good. I am still surprising myself with faster than expect runs, and I might have hit the point where it is time to change my expectations. Anyways, i only called this good, not great, because despite running very fast, it felt difficult and almost slowish. I did not expect, even during the run, that I was running anything close to the pace I ran.

good 8

I have been pretty lazy about running recently, looking for excuses to not run. Motzash I didnt run because I was helping my wife prepare for an event she was hosting. Sunday I did not run because it was cold and rainy. Yesterday afternoon as well This morning I did not run because it was cold and rainy. And I have suddenly started eating too much junk again. I got a window mid-morning, and the rain had petered off, so I decided to go out and run.

I got in a good 8km run at a fast pace. I ran across Kishon, up Hayarqon, across Rav Elyashiv St (I think that is the name), and down via Yarmuth Park where I ran through a puddle of mud and water and got detoured by piles of tree branches and shrubbery blocking the path. Then back up to Hayarqon and Luz, down to Kishon and back home, finishing at 8

finally 11

Today was strange. I planned a long run, but when I got up it was wet, cold and windy, and I was feeling lazy. I actually went out and started to run and then decided I did not want to do that, so went back in and watched football. Then later in the morning I got ready to run and again decided not to.

Finally around noon I was feeling ready to run, but by then a long run was out of the question. So, I got ready to run and actually went out. I had a really good 11km run at a fast pace. Third time is the charm. I had a good run in practice, but relative to what I had planned it was sorely lacking in distance.

good 6

went out early and got a fast 6. I expected to run slow and wanted to avoid running fast so as not to make tomorrow's long run more difficult. When noticing I was running too fast I tried to slow myself down, but in the end had a fast run.

fabulous 11

Got out for a mid-day run and was kind of tired, so I assumed it would be a slowish run. It even felt slow starting out, but when my kilometer alert went off I saw it was actually pretty fast, so I just kept going, focused on running and form, and kept seeing consistently fast kilometers.

I ended up running 11km at a very fast pace (for me, obviously), and broke the hour mark for 10km by a nice amount.

very good 7.5

great run this morning. was feeling good after a day off of running and woke up earl for no particular reason, so was able to get out early enough for a slightly longer run. Ran 7.5km at a very fast pace. I thought about pushing to ten but decided I'd prefer to save my legs for a slightly longer Wednesday run. Hopefully other things will fall into place and that will happen.

record November


My running apps just popped up on my phone with some stats.

This past month of November had me running 200km, and burning over 16,000 calories.

that is significantly more than any other month in the past year. November 2018 came pretty close to November 2019, and October 2018 beat November 2019 by a little bit...

It must be something about November. Maybe the cooler weather...

ok 6

woke up early and got out for what i expected to be another slow run. I actually felt pretty good despite some lingering soreness (though not nearly as sore as last night) and ran 6km at an average pace.
