Not really. However, I've made a few changes to my running blog and have decided to decommission 'I "Will" Run at 40' Please check out my new look:

Progression Run

I tried a Progression Run (PR) today based on the suggestion of a Twitter companion. A PR, as defined by Greg McMillan, is a run where you you begin running at a slow, easy pace but finish at a fast pace (see URL My stats were: 400 (kcal). 4.00 mi. 9:22 min/mile and 00:37:33 time. I thought I did pretty good even though I was unable to finish the last 8 minutes.

17 And Counting!

I'm up to 17 miles this week which is about my weekly average in 2009.  The Lord is going to bless Chicago with warmer weather the next few days, so I'll be able to go outside, PTL!  I've been "tweeting" and "facebooking" a lot and have built up my network of runners and trainers who are located across the entire world. That's pretty good for a guy who was not even running this time last year!

Today I did some speed work: 1 mile warm-up/cool-down & 4x400 sprints.  I also incorporated core training exercises used by Lolo Jones.  Tomorrow I am going to do a long run outdoors.  Now if I can just figure out where to run...hmmmm.
