Fast Four Things Friday


  1. I have come to the realization that I am a “running geek” thanks to JayDub’s post on Galloping Geeks.  He collected/wrote a fair list of observations about runners, and yes, I am indeed a ‘Running Geek/Nerd”.
  2. I ran an awesome 35 minute Tempo run yesterday. (click the link to see the Garmin results)  I am really lovin’ the speed work.  I was a little surprised at how the Garmin tracked my pace because I didn’t notice all of the up and down during my run, but my HR was very steady.  One note I found interesting is that I did not feel the slight headache afterwards, so it appears my body is getting much better at processing oxygen on these speed runs.  SCORE!!!
  3. This weekend I have a 6 mile marathon pace run on Saturday followed by a 13 mile long run on Sunday.  I love the double runs on the weekends.  The training plan I am following added the Saturday runs, and I am really liking them.  On my past training plans I felt kind of lost on the extra rest day, but I will see how I feel once my mileage gets back up to 40+.
  4. I added the new countdown to the site for the San Francisco marathon.  It seems so far away right now, but I know it will get here fast.  I haven’t officially signed up for it yet, but will probably take care of hotel and registration soon.

Take care everyone, and have a great weekend.

  1. Hi there–Just found your site via Viper’s. I see that you are a former NE Ohioan, as am I. You also have the best name in the world, my son’s! Looking forward to following your adventures.

  2. Hi Adam,
    Nice job on your tempo run yesterday!! I think being a running geek is a good thing:) If someone called me that I would be flattered!!

    I hope that you have an excellent weekend Adam!

  3. I need to remember my running shoe signature, thanks for the reminder :). I haven’t read the geek/nerd article yet but I’m certain I can place myself in that category. Have a great weekend, Adam!!!

  4. Adam, i’m a galloping geek too! San Fran was my 2nd ever marathon and my favorite ever. Not to mention the scenery is breathtaking and the weather is usually perfect. Have a good weekend of running!

  5. I really love the back to back runs on sat-sunday. I am nearly positive that they help the most out of any back to back run.

    Nice work on the tempo! No headaches have to be a good thing!
