"By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail" Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com http://MarcE.fastrunningblog.com/ Thu, 19 Sep 2019 15:31:34 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Sun, Feb 28, 2016 http://MarcE.fastrunningblog.com/blog-02-28-2016.html <p>Because my right calf had been giving me fits..I rested it for a couple weeks. I had already paid for the Cowtown Half, so I decided to show up and see how things went. Calf was fine. Feet were blistered. Finished in 1:55ish. Positive splits. Going to dust off the bikes...running has lost its excitement for me. I realize that running is a great joy for many of my friends...but it has turned into a painful chore. Instead of posting about my woes, until I&#39;m ready to commit to regular training, I&#39;m going to abandon this &quot;Fast&quot; running blog. Happy trails, folks!</p> Sun, 28 Feb 2016 07:00:00 Thu, Feb 04, 2016 http://MarcE.fastrunningblog.com/blog-02-04-2016.html <p>5 miles around Texas Motorspeedway. Right calf very tight. Need to bring compression socks next time. Counting down to Cowtown Half marathon...it&#39;s been a long time since I&#39;ve run that far!</p> Thu, 04 Feb 2016 07:00:00 Tue, Feb 02, 2016 http://MarcE.fastrunningblog.com/blog-02-02-2016.html <p>5 miles around TMS.</p> <p>AP: 8:20, last mile: 7:20</p> <p>feeling out of shape.</p> Tue, 02 Feb 2016 07:00:00 Sun, Jan 31, 2016 http://MarcE.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-31-2016.html <p>Ran 10 miles on rail trail. Convinced my sherpa, Christian to ride his bike along to keep me company and carry my water. Nice 75 degree last day of January!</p> <p>AP: 8:50</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Sun, 31 Jan 2016 07:00:00
