10K in 81:04!
Saturday, January 09, 2010      4 comments

Not exactly a record-breaking time - but it would have gotten me across the Apple Blossom finish line before the parade ran over me. Plus now I have a new goal - get my time under eighty minutes. (If you think of it as improving my time by 1%,... Read more

I may or may not reach 100K on vacation, what with the car breaking down and all - but I have gotten to 50K, so I've been getting to the gym regularly and working on my running goals. Here's to a good 10K time at the Apple Blossom Festival in A... Read more

... but I put in another 5K today. I should look up what muscle it is that aches when I go downstairs. (It's the kind of soreness that means you've been getting exercise, not the kind that means you're injured.)... Read more

Even though I was up late last night having fun with the doughty crew of the USS Quantum, I got up and jogged 10K this morning. And I felt good afterwards, not all OH GOD. It does seem, though, that one of my 10K goals is going to be "do t... Read more

100K before spring semester?
Monday, December 21, 2009      3 comments

So the biggest inconvenience from doing 10K on the treadmill was my aching feet afterwards, and a soak in a hot bathtub left me ready to go to a party that night. Yesterday and today I did a more modest 5K. My times have been ... less than... Read more
Initial 10K: not so bad
Saturday, December 19, 2009      2 comments

I got on the treadmill today and alternated jogging half a mile with walking. I did have to take my walking pace down a bit from what I'd hoped to do, because my calves (and hips, weird) were feeling it pretty badly, but still finished fast eno... Read more

The eternal battle of the DuPont Circle Escalator
Tuesday, December 15, 2009      4 comments

So I always gripe about walking up the DuPont Circle Escalator, which works out to about four floors, even though I always walk up it, because if I didn't I'd feel like I was being lazy. And I'd kick myself if it made me miss the shuttle. ... Read more

The bad Stairmaster
Wednesday, December 09, 2009      2 comments

So I figured out a while back that the second StairMaster from the end is set a little different from the others. It's consistently a harder workout, so I stick with the other five, which are more consistent. But today I absentmindedly got... Read more
New fitness goal
Monday, December 07, 2009      2 comments

So maybe it's the lingering effects of the flu, but my cardio has been way below the level it was at before summer break, and it's kind of discouraging. (Not to mention that it's only in the last couple of days that going to the gym has started... Read more
