better 5

 Altra Paradigm

woke up early, went for 5km run in the cool air, all nice. I felt like I was struggling and had to stop an extra time to catch my breath. I didnt realize I was actually pushing until I finished and saw my pace was somewhat better than previously...and then I got home and took the dog out for a walk

good 5

 Altra Paradigm

good early morning run. Started off a bit stiff because of the chilly air but warmed up quickly. Pushed and felt good. Slightly lower than last run but still better than previous runs. Continued improvement. 5km. Thought about going for 6 again but decided not to, not for any particular good reason.

good 6

 Altra Paradigm

went out for a late morning run. It was a bit warm but I was angry about something so that gave me a good run, I pushed, wanted to burn energy. Ran 6km, which was unplanned, and ran it at a better pace than my previous recent runs, and felt good, though I guess I will be very sore later. Maybe that should be my strategy for all runs. Or maybe it means normally I run lazy (which I already know to be somewhat true)

better 5

 Altra Paradigm

another beautiful morning for a run. 5km at a slightly better pace. I pushed myself a bit today and my pace was a bit faster, and I was also huffing and puffing much more. It was nice to bump into my old running group during my run....

nice 5

 Altra Paradigm

beautiful morning for a run. I planned to go out early but my early morning plans had to be changed late last night, so after getting kids to school and doing a little bit of work that was waiting for me I went out for my 5km run in beautiful post-rain sunny warm but pleasant weather. Run was 5km at a slightly better pace than the past couple days...

morning 5

 Altra Paradigm

got up early this morning to run. Wanna make a comeback, gotta commit. 5km. Slow. Just trying to get back into a routine right now. Ran decently at a slow pace and felt good throughout.

They say a storm is coming today -  a 2 day storm. This morning was beautiful weather with clear skies, but as my run went on I felt the winds picking up....

Hard Easy 5

 Altra Paradigm

It has been nearly two months since I last ran. I had good excuses, though in the past most of these excuses never stopped or prevented me from running. It started with a randomly swollen knee (that doctor thinks might be gout), and that kept me sidelined for a few weeks - I tried a couple times but felt very unstable. Then it went to holiday, wedding, war, and other more minor factors. But I made it out there tonight. I actually planned to start back with an easy 3km run, but as I began i felt good so I figured I would go my regular 5km route and cut it short if necessary.

it was an easy light run, no pushing, no stress, but it was hard and tiring, but I did the entire 5km, so good start on my way back.
