Official 5K times are up - 36:58!
Saturday, April 11, 2009      4 comments

Despite my worries about running a real 5K outside the comfort and convenience of the gym, dragging in last long after everyone else had finished, et cetera, I actually took five minutes off my in-gym time. It does strike me, though, that t... Read more
Another 5K!
Friday, April 10, 2009      2 comments

I was prepared for my 5K results in an actual race to be slower than what I'd done on the treadmill, what with the asphalt and the 75-degree weather and the lack of water and all. The official results that were supposed to be up an hour and a h... Read more

Victory at the gym!
Monday, April 06, 2009      5 comments

I went up a level on the StairMaster. Normally, this means at least one rough session, with gasping, panting, suffering, and some amount of leaning on the bars for "balance" (which I then try to reduce every session). This time, though, it... Read more

It's too bad they give you three points for reading the Daily Spark, because that means I read the Daily Spark.

Wednesday, April 01, 2009      5 comments

I was awakened this morning at four a.m. by a guy shouting a few yards from my window. "Bob! What's it about?" Over and over and over and over and over. I realize there are hygienic reasons that we no longer have the Middle Age practice ... Read more
Rivendell this month?

Darwinista is hoping to reach Rivendell before May 1st. I just passed the 300-mile mark today, leaving me with less than 100 miles to go. I'm hoping to make it, but with Easter Break coming up, don't know if I'll be up to my usual mileage aver... Read more

A little more 5K stuff
Sunday, March 29, 2009      1 comments

Today I'm sore - sorer than I remember being when I did 5K on the treadmill. Probably due to the hills. It's not awful, though, and I'm hoping that doing some walking will help. A classmate who's in the university running club just sent m... Read more
More or less 5K
Saturday, March 28, 2009      2 comments

After unexpected morning drama (laundromat opens two hours late!) I got to campus to find an enthusiastic if disorganized group of runners setting up the 5K. The route marking was minimal. Really minimal. They described the route beforeha... Read more
Make that six 5Ks
Friday, March 27, 2009      3 comments

A classmate invited me to a 5K on campus tomorrow. I probably won't get a T-shirt - they're only giving them to the first fifty registrants - but on the bright side, all the money raised goes to a charity that fights malaria. Tomorrow I'll... Read more
