Butt Kicker-

  Fall is here...yet the sun and 83 degree temps + all the stinkin' hills= one worn out runner! I did manage the 19 mile run but I had to begin a walk run program around 12 miles. I picked up a friend as I was running too. A really nice looking bird dog began following me around the 4 mile mark. She stayed with me the whole way!!
  I drove her back home after the run was over...nice dog, wish the owners were more responsible! So one more long run in the books! It wasn't pretty but I did finish and I think I'll live!? I really believe this was a perfect work-out today. I needed the heat and the hills to keep me tough. When the cool weather comes and the course is flat I will be strong! Hope all is well with you!

I often do some walking on my long runs and find them all very good workouts.

A little "speed"

   I like to use the treadmill at times for speed work. I have no real flat stretches out here, the speed on the mill is steady and you can...
