Matt Todd Running Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com Fri, 21 Sep 2018 19:21:02 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Mon, Sep 10, 2018 <p>Longest run I&#39;ve done since last June. I feel a bit tired. mostly because I stuffed myself at a ysa thing right before my run... not a good idea. nice and slow.</p> Mon, 10 Sep 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 07, 2018 <p>7 miler. much faster than yesterday (not too much of an accomplishment), but it ended up being around 7:46 average. Turns out ice makes your legs less sore. How&#39;s that for a fun fact?&nbsp;</p> Fri, 07 Sep 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 06, 2018 <p>I feel like I just carried the&nbsp;one ring to mordor, collected and destroyed all 7 horcruxes, and beat alex honnold up the face of El Capitan. Holy Frick. My legs are seriously fatigued. I plan on hitting 42 miles this week, which isn&#39;t a ton, but it&#39;s more than I&#39;ve ran in a week since high school. Probably a dumb move but yolo right.</p> <p>Suuuper slow. I would&#39;ve lost to my grandma on speed. She could probably amputate one of her legs and I&#39;d still lose. Let&#39;s just say I had a lot of time to think. Nonetheless, I did it.</p> <p>St george in 30 days. ya know, I may have only started running again and training the last 2 weeks but if I&#39;ve learned anything from Nike the last few days it&#39;s to not ask if your dreams are crazy, ask if they&#39;re crazy enough.</p> Thu, 06 Sep 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 05, 2018 <p>Super slow. tryna hit 8 again tomorrow so I needed a bit of recovery. I even did one plank at the end. That&#39;s one more plank than I did yesterday. Dope. Average pace 8:16/mile.</p> Wed, 05 Sep 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 04, 2018 <p>Roughly 7:40 average pace. It was hot. Sidenote I actually have no idea what my average pace was... that was just my warm up pace and then my watch stopped working. Happens every day. I guess that&#39;s what I get for rocking the frickin forerunner 10. Thing was&nbsp;literally carved out of mammoth tusk with a stone knife. I&#39;m practically living in a third world country here. I mean, even kids from rural ethiopia probably at least have the 15. fetch. Maybe I&#39;ll have to mug some Timpview High School JV kid and take his watch. Stay tuned.</p> Tue, 04 Sep 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 03, 2018 <p>Fresh New kicks. Wanted to go 10 but it was 10:00 at night and I ran past one too many sketchy warehouses with flickering lightbulbs and decided to just run back home as fast as I could. Adrenaline feels great though, averaged around 7:30/mile.</p> Mon, 03 Sep 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Aug 31, 2018 Fri, 31 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Aug 29, 2018 Wed, 29 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Aug 28, 2018 Tue, 28 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Aug 27, 2018 Mon, 27 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Aug 25, 2018 <p>Only 5, but actually pretty proud of how consistent I was for a first full week back at it.</p> Sat, 25 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Aug 24, 2018 Fri, 24 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Aug 23, 2018 Thu, 23 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Aug 22, 2018 Wed, 22 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Aug 21, 2018 Tue, 21 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Aug 20, 2018 Mon, 20 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Aug 18, 2018 <p>with @connorballer</p> Sat, 18 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Aug 17, 2018 Fri, 17 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Aug 13, 2018 <p>Almost killed me.
