HOT Temps on the Track..

  Thanks to the BC Speedsters (Track Club) for letting me run my own workout during their track practice.  This time of year it is hard to find an open track in Bucks County so I am very thankful for the generosity. http://connect.garmin.com/activity/316339492 Today was the hottest day of the year thus far here in […]

Not the day I had hoped for….

http://connect.garmin.com/activity/308181194   Today did not turn out as I had expected and hoped. I am not sure why but it is worth looking at the last 6 weeks to try and figure this out. In late March, after finishing the Winter Series, my legs were tired and I was not particularly motivated to run the […]

6 Miles with 6 x 1 minute pickups (1 min recovery) at 6am

. So this morning I met Joe Warwick at Council Rock Rock at 6:00am for a quick 6 mile run with some pick-ups.   It was a cool morning but a great one for running.  We ran for about 2 miles from CRS to Tyler State Park and then started the 1 minute pickups.  The […]

Back on the track with Joe Warwick

This Sunday is the Broad Street Run which is one of, if not the largest 10 Mile road races in the United States.  I am running on a very good masters team for the Greater Philadelphia Track Club. The team has my good friends and training partners Bill Gould and Joe Warwick.  Bill and Joe […]

Speedwork, A Great Item Donated and a Dinner I Was Lucky to Attend

So today was one of those busy days.  Some much going on at work, soccer practice for my son, and a speed workout looming.  Todays’s workout was 10 x 400m at a goal of 80 sec with a short 100m recovery.  Of course once again it was ridiculously windy with a big change of weather […]

Working at the Bucks County Half Marathon and a Nice 15 Miler!

So today started early. I had to have my table set up at the Bucks County Half Marathon by 6:00am. I co-located my table with the Bucks County Speedsters tent. The speedsters are the local track club that has been kind enough to sponsor the Maccabi 5K and have added this to the calendar of […]

What were you doing at 5:00am? I was on the track with Boston Pete.

http://connect.garmin.com/activity/292225232 Today’s workout seemed simply enough, 12 x 600m with 200m recovery.  The first 400m was to be at 10K pace with the 2nd 200m at 5K pace.  … I got up at 4:10 when my LARK (iPhone alarm the uses a vibrating wrist band to wake you.  It also monitors you sleep patterns which […]
