Fast Four Things Friday



  1. I have come to the realization that I am a “running geek” thanks to JayDub’s post on Galloping Geeks.  He collected/wrote a fair list of observations about runners, and yes, I am indeed a ‘Running Geek/Nerd”.
  2. I ran an awesome 35 minute Tempo run yesterday. (click the link to see the Garmin results)  I am really lovin’ the speed work.  I was a little surprised at how the Garmin tracked my pace because I didn’t notice all of the up and down during my run, but my HR was very steady.  One note I found interesting is that I did not feel the slight headache afterwards, so it appears my body is getting much better at processing oxygen on these speed runs.  SCORE!!!
  3. This weekend I have a 6 mile marathon pace run on Saturday followed by a 13 mile long run on Sunday.  I love the double runs on the weekends.  The training plan I am following added the Saturday runs, and I am really liking them.  On my past training plans I felt kind of lost on the extra rest day, but I will see how I feel once my mileage gets back up to 40+.
  4. I added the new countdown to the site for the San Francisco marathon.  It seems so far away right now, but I know it will get here fast.  I haven’t officially signed up for it yet, but will probably take care of hotel and registration soon.

Take care everyone, and have a great weekend.

    I need to remember my running shoe signature, thanks for the reminder :). I haven’t read the geek/nerd article yet but I’m certain I can place myself in that category. Have a great weekend, Adam!!!

    Oooh I am so jealous I want to do the San Francisco marathon!

    Have fun on the long runs!!

    Running with my leg up like that gives me a little hitch when I run, but it’s great for the core;)

    Adam, i’m a galloping geek too! San Fran was my 2nd ever marathon and my favorite ever. Not to mention the scenery is breathtaking and the weather is usually perfect. Have a good weekend of running!

    Nice job on the tempo run. I hope your weekend runs went well.

    I really love the back to back runs on sat-sunday. I am nearly positive that they help the most out of any back to back run.

    Nice work on the tempo! No headaches have to be a good thing!
