Week of 9/2-9/8

Sunday-Took today off, just biked to and from work.

Monday-Had off work today for Labor Day, so I decided to take advantage. At 10:00am I headed out for an 8 mile run (58:39-7:19 pace). Felt nice and relaxed the whole way. At 4:30pm I went on a 24.2 mile bike ride around East Walnut Hills, Norwood, then Lunken and Armleder Park. Humid out, but overcast which was nice.

Tuesday-Had off today so I went on a 12 mile run (1:25:00-7:05 pace) around 11:20am. Same route as 5 days ago, but WAY more humid today. Last 3 miles were rough, but still kept the pace.

Wednesday-Headed out for an 8 miler (59:14-7:24 pace) after work around 8pm. ran to the conservatory in Eden Park and back. Thunderstorm that rolled through around 5pm cooled the temperature down quite a bit to around 72 degrees which was great.

Thursday-After work with Mr. 2:21 marathoner Chris Reis, 8 miles in 57:20-7:10 pace. Felt decent enough, hot and humid again. First time I have run with somebody in about 2 months.

Friday-Just biked to and from work, took off because we had dinner plans after work.

Saturday-7 miles after work (50:43-7:14 pace). Very easy and relaxed before long run tomorrow.

Running miles-43
Biking miles-42.7

Week of 8/26-9/1

Sunday-Carrie and I left her parent's house in Pittsburgh around 6am, and got back to Cincinnati around 10:30am. I changed clothes and biked to work for 11am. After biking back home from work I threw on my kicks and headed out for a 7 mile run (50:48-7:15 pace). It was still pretty warm at 6pm, about 90 degrees. Long day, but glad I managed to get a run in.

Monday-Today was my short day at work, so around 3:30pm in the post afternoon thunderstorm humidity I did a new route with about 1,100ft in elevation change. About one mile of it was on a trail cutting through the middle of Ault Park. Total the run was 8 miles in 1:00:28-7:33 pace.

Tuesday-Worked late today and didn't get out for my run until 8:15pm. Did 7 miles in 52:38-7:31 pace. Second half of the run was in the dark, kind of fun.

Wednesday-Didn't run today, but I did bike to Bob's house for our bi-monthly manager's meeting, then to work, then back home.

Thursday-Off work today and beautiful outside. I headed out for my long run around 9:30am. Did an out and back 12 miler in 1:26:16-7:11 pace. It was 78 degrees, sunny, and no humidity. Perfect day out and the run was very easy.

Friday-Didn't run today, just biked to and from work.

Saturday-Did what I call the UDF Loop which passes three UDF's along the 8 mile route. Very humid out, but only 84 degrees. Covered the loop in 58:52-7:21 pace.
