All I want to do is drink beer and train like an animal.

I'm feeling rough. I'm feeling raw. I'm in the prime of my life.

Thursday 09/14/06 to Sunday 09/17/06

30 min

20 min

Just barely squeezed this one in.

5 min w/u
2Xmile, rest = 100m walk [5:38/5:40]
3X1,000m, rest = 200m walk [3:20/3:19/3:19]
3X400m, rest = 300m walk [1:08/1:07/1:05]

Felt great tonight. The mile repeats were pretty easy, the thousands pushed me just enough and the quarters really let me cut loose and go all out. Really feeling confident about going out and running a smart even race next week. Ran with Kelly again and she did a great job with the pace. She did 1/2 the distance with me and she hit some very good times for her.


30 min out around the Olin Park Woods.


  1. Inspiring words.."every passion has its destiny." Made me stop and visit your blog:)

  2. I just found your blog via RBF... the quotes made me peek :)

    I have to ask, have you had Bob Andersen as a prof at UW ?

  3. The astronomy professor? I has him for his last class he taught here - Astro 200.


  4. My name is Robert Key and I am a runner from Houston, Texas. I saw your blog listed when I was looking through the RBF directory and very much enjoyed reading some of your entries. I have a web site at that is inspirational stories for walkers, runners and athletes of all ages and abilities. A new feature I have recently added to the site is a categorized and searchable Running Blog Database where members of my site can find a blog of interest to them based on other walkers, runners or athletes of similar abilities, goals and interests. To my knowledge it is the only one of its kind specifically for walkers and runners on the internet. I would appreciate it if you would take a moment to put a link to your blog in our Running Blog Database. Just click on "Link your running blog" under "Free Features" from the home page. If you want to learn more about my running background, just click on "Meet Robert" from the main menu , or to learn more about my involvement in the running community, click on "Faithful Soles in the news" in the left column under "Weekly Features". I also have a blog that I just started at, but most of my running information is on my web site. Also, if there is anyone else in your blogger network that you think would be interested in listing their blog, please feel free to pass this information along to them. Thanks and continued good luck in your training.
