This was my second lunchtime 5-mile run, and I made sure to use my watch properly to record it. So I actually ran 5 miles instead of 6.
The goal was to get a decent tempo run down and, once again, focus on running form.
I wore a compression...
This midweek run had the goal of being somewhat slower-paced than normal, to help conserve energy for my long run at the end of the
week. My main goal was to enjoy it, focus on running form, and go all the way around the lake instead of doing...
I took both Saturday and Sunday off as rest days to recover from last week's miserable overtraining. I knew I would need extra time
this week, with a long run of 18 miles planned, so I shifted my schedule a bit, too, moving my runs from Tuesday...

This week I decided to head back to Lake Hefner for my scheduled 16 mile run, with hopes that familiar terrain and...
Today was my second four-mile run for the week, with the first Tuesday and an eight-mile run yesterday. I decided to take it a bit easier
