Keeping The Ball Rolling

I feared the worst after the hard day on Sunday, but didn’t feel too bad on Monday.  Sore for sure, but I didn’t feel as bad as I did after the national meet.  I took 3 days off after Lisle, … Continue reading

Six days closer to nationals, this one definitely has a different feel to it ever since we signed on for this relay.  In December 2009 (about 7 months before I started this blog) Chuck Shields set up a Greater Philadelphia … Continue reading

Back, and Faster than Ever

Just kidding about the faster than ever part.  I am back though. Long layoff from the keyboard as a recharged my blogging batteries.  Meant to start back up as the Harrisburg Mile approached but one thing led to another and … Continue reading

To Swarthmore to Race

It’s Saturday, so it’s time to race.  I felt like I had a decent week+ with a couple sets of intervals, albeit longer and slower than normal.  Felt dead yesterday though, so hopefully that won’t mean anything today.  It’s 7am … Continue reading

Turkey Day Dress Rehearsal

Took yesterday off, then avoided the invitation/temptation to jump in the early spin class for quite possibly the first time ever – didn’t want to have dead legs for the track session.  Got out to the high school by 0730, … Continue reading
