Another week for building endurance came and went. As far as how it went down, I must say it was very productive. I exceeded my weekly mileage by 4.5 miles, even after the 18 mile weekend long run. I pushed myself running 7.25 miles 3 days in a row to build endurance. I also remembered to look back at the half marathon time that I had at the Duke City Marathon in ABQ, NM back in 2009, and it was quite interesting to see how far I’ve come in the past less than 6 years. And I am 100 miles closer to this year’s 1,100 mile goal than 18 days ago. Read More…

Today was the last longest run day before the Surf City Marathon. I got up early this morning to simulate the process of getting ready for the race, which is less than 2 weeks away.

Not So Great Pace and Stride Length, and 1,100 Mile Goal

Today was a bit of disappointing day, in terms of pace and stride length. Because I had such a great run the other day, and actually it was probably the best pace and time I ever had, I was really hoping to see my average stride length go up and my pace stay brisk. Read More…

Tempo, Cadence, Stride Length!

What a difference! That’s what I wanted to see as soon as I was done running, and that is what I saw!  Read More…

Stride length, it is.

What a fabulous, overcast day to do a long run! 16 miles along the beach, and most of all, the perfect temperature (63 degrees) in spite of the sun peeking through the clouds in the early part of the run. Read More…

Back to square one!

cadence, stride frequency, stride length,


Today was the day when I put my cadence to the test! With my Garmin Forerunner 310XT and a foot pod on, I was really anxious about measuring my most accurate cadence to date. Also, I was excited about putting on my new Asics Gel-Kayano 21 and the FootBalance insoles. Read More…
