Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: April 13, 2011

In a previous post from March 1st, I wrote about my need for a new pair of running shoes and my proposed selection process, such as it is.

Mileage 6 Miles Time 7:00PM Location Indoors – Treadmill Weather Hot and Sticky I am continuing with my steady mileage increase towards my half marathon goal and it seems to be working.

Mileage 5.5 Miles Time 7:00PM Location Indoors – Treadmill Weather Hot and Sticky The weather continues to be brutal here in the Chicago area but at least the village finally sprayed for mosquitos this past week.

It has been a typical winter here in the Chicagoland area with lots of wet snow and cold to go along with it. As much as i would like to run outside I don’t want to deal with the drivers around here or the possibility of a slip/fall scenario. Being forced to run inside has […]

Two In A Row

Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: February 5, 2010

Had another great run today on my road to recovery. It was just a short 4 miler but I felt really good and I did not break the two rules I broke on Wednesday night (tonight I started the run at 6:30 pm and waited till after the workout to eat). Not being so rushed […]

On The Road (Treadmill) Again

Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: February 4, 2010

I finally got back in the swing of things after my marathon induced deltoid ligament injury. I was able to squeeze in some time on the hotel treadmill following a client site visit, but I broke two of my basic rule of training. Don’t eat right before you run Don’t run after 8pm Breaking these […]

Ouch…What The Heck?

Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: January 13, 2010

Despite the great Marathon experience, apparently I did not come out unscathed. I noticed today that the top of my foot feels like a creaking door and If I put my hand on my shin and move my foot up and down (point the toes at the ceiling then at the floor) I can feel […]
