Pacing and Perspective by Corey S. Posted Sat 02 Apr 2011 6:15pm With the marathon being just 2 weeks from Monday, today was my last double-digits run of training. It’s hard to believe it’s so close (especially since we got snow in Boston yesterday!) After discussing my general race strategies , my unexpected feelings after a 21 miler last weekend, and beginning to bounce back toward positivity and ... Read on »
High pace for a change of pace... by Cord C. Patient Expert Posted Mon 25 Aug 2008 6:44pm I am still in search of the perfect run. So, today I took to the same Crazy 8 or Figure 8 route I have been running, but this time I kept the pace quick. The weather was cool (40's) and I ended up outside after dark but the traffic flow was low and I didn't have any problem running through the streets of my neighborhood. I took the hil ... Read on »
Cooler weather means faster training runs: 8:30 pace in 80 degree weather means 7:30 pace when temps are in the 60s by Kevin L. Patient Expert Posted Tue 20 Sep 2011 11:09am The end of summer is not until Friday, but already the cool temperatures – and cool is a relative word since the morning lows are in the low 70s instead of the low 80s – are positively effecting my runs. On Monday, I had my first marathon-goal pace run. I ran 9 miles with the first three as a warm-up. I wore my heart rate monitor, which gav ... Read on »
Review and Giveaway: Omron GOsmart Pace/Distance Tracker by Jennette F. Patient Expert Posted Thu 22 Jul 2010 8:21am Disclosure: I received a free Omron GOsmart Pace/Distance tracker for this review, as well as a free t-shirt, water bottle and ear buds. I figured if I walked up the big $&%^-ing hill to the bakery shop, I deserved to have a cupcake at the top, so I set off on my walk. Then I turned around on my front porch, went back inside and grabbe ... Read on »
Pace Workouts On Your PC by Ashley M. Posted Thu 11 Aug 2011 5:59pm We've been relatively quiet with running posts for the past several months. But that doesn't mean we haven't been hitting the pavement. Some of us harder than others, of course. Stephen recently reaped the reward for all his hard work -- earning a new 5K PR. Seriously. He beat his HIGH SCHOOL time, finishing in 16:42. I th ... Read on »
Perfecting Pacing by irunnerblog Posted Wed 16 Nov 2011 10:05am Bonking at the NYC marathon was not in my game plan.  What I did have in my game plan was to run a fairly even paced race avoiding going out too fast and fading over the final 5 miles.  Well, that whole plan went out the window when my dumb-ass went out way too fast, crushing my legs on the downhills and throwing off my entire day. I tal ... Read on »

Run 2, Week 5 (BTHR): You Can't Judge Your Pace By How It Feels! by Corey I. Patient Expert Posted Sat 18 Oct 2008 2:35pm It was 37 degrees and cloudy when I went for my run today at 5:15 pm. On the schedule was 40 minutes of running at a moderate pace. I did 5 laps (or 3.7 miles) in 43:20 minutes, or a 11:42 minute mile pace. At the 4 lap-marker (2.96 miles), I believe I'd clocked roughly 34 minutes and a certain number of seconds that I can't seem ... Read on »
Training Paces while Running by Allen Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Mon 17 Nov 2008 9:07pm When you talk with other runners or read the running literature, you hear comments about running various paces, such as rest runs, tempo runs, marathon pace, etc. Proper training means that you don't just run one pace all the time. You vary your pace according to the goals of your training. In this page, I discuss the paces that are commonly us ... Read on »
finding my pace ... by Tonia B. Posted Fri 19 Feb 2010 6:16am Can I just start by saying, "Wow! 80 followers!"? Seriously, when did that happen? Welcome and if I haven't stopped by yet, leave me a comment and I will be sure to. OK, back on task. Thanks to G, and her declaration of my greatest weakness as a runner, everyone in the free world knows that I am a notoriously bad racer. I train my butt off, bu ... Read on »
