Tempo Run & Building Speed

Good 9 mile Tempo Run on Wednesday in Iowa City, Iowa ...

 8:00, 7:37, 7:17, 6:49, 6:38, 6:39, 6:23, 6:34, 7:54

The five middle miles were at an average pace of about 6:35 or so, which I'll absolutely take at this point.

In the photo, you'll notice a sizable amount of back fat.  That's real.  I didn't Photoshop it in.  My eating is still out of control and as a result I don't look great naked.  Normally I do.

Back at it I guess.


  1. If you didn't point out the back fat I would never have noticed. I was too engrossed in the calf definition. They're runner's legs.

  2. I second Char's comments. Your calf muscles are awesome. And, P.S., the cool thing about back fat (and yours is so minor it's almost laughable) is that it's on your back. You don't have to see it, lol. Keep up the paces.


Thanks for stopping by ... your comment's always welcome!
