Sunday Running Report: Benched

I got chikungunya and took a forced hiatus from the blog.  I’m not quite back to normal.  My body still feels like mush.  My muscles are not as strong as they used to be.  For this and other reasons I have made two important decisions about my running. 1.

Sunday Running Report: Catching up

Other than realizing that I have no idea where my good running shoes are this week went well. I swam a lot more.  I was really surprised my endurance while swimming.  To think I only learned to swim 10 years ago.  Also is there any easy way I can figure out my mileage while swimming.  I realized that I had […]
