4 mile tempo run – felt great!

Posted by bunchgrasser on May 27, 2009

I dashed out of the office at lunch time today and ran a 4 mile tempo run. The weather was fabulous and the sunshine felt sooo good! It almost feels like summer already. Anyway, I began the run with a 5 minute warm-up at a slower pace and then maintained a challenging pace (ranging between 7:30 – 7:50 minutes/mile for the remainder of the run. It felt good to run faster but I sure felt it afterwards. As I sit here writing this post I’m still attempting to cool down.

I am also breaking in a new pair of Asics Gel Nimbus 10’s. I normally run in Kayano’s for the extra cushioning and stability, but I decided to experiment with some shoes that are more neutral in design since I”m not a heavy pronator. I may not have taken a big leap between these two models, but I’ve worn the Nimbus model in the past and liked them. I’d like to find a comfortable shoe that is about half way between the Kayano and my Nike Free 3.0. Something maybe around 9-10 ounces or so. Anyone have any suggestions?

Cheers

Why do I blog? (part 1)

Posted by bunchgrasser on April 28, 2008

My wife recently asked me why I decided to start a blog. As I took a deep breath and prepared to list off all of the cool reasons – something strange happened – I couldn’t think of any. At least none with enough substance to convince her that blogging is a worthwhile endeavor. So, while pondering this seemingly complex question, I decided to see why other people blog. What I found was an amazingly diverse collection of reasons. One blog site in particular has taken this a step further and conducted an informal survey with the top 35 respondents listed.

As for me, I’m going to put some thought to this question and I’ll post the results in part 2.

Cheers
