Exercise Log 5.4.14 (Pittsburgh Half Marathon)

By phoebusapollo on Sun May 04 2014

After the training and the talking and the stressing it was finally race day, and I was ready as I’ll ever be. I had a fantastic time out today, well except for getting my car out of downtown after the race was over due to the race sections still being corded off… the day was […]

Exercise Log 4.27.14 (Half Training Run #4)

By phoebusapollo on Sun Apr 27 2014

Today is leg day, which as part of my temporary program change is now half marathon training day. So today I wanted to do a run on pavement, as much of my half training was on trails (to get elevation change challenges). I need to preface this with the fact that basically everything went wrong, […]

Exercise Log 4.21.14 (Half Training Run #3)

By phoebusapollo on Mon Apr 21 2014

Another lost log, but this training run (which is shorter than intended due to the intensity of the 10K from two days before) was an elevation challenge – the half only has one elevation change but it’s a couple hundred feet, so to be sure that wouldn’t take me for surprise I ran up and […]

Exercise Log 4.19.14 (Boyce Park Wild Trail Run 10K)

By phoebusapollo on Sat Apr 19 2014

Today I had my Wild Trail Run 10K at Boyce Park. I don’t have official times, but I ran the race in about 1 hour 1 minute, which is good considering the route had 297ft of vertical gain up and down the hills in the park. These were backwood trails, which created an interesting challenge […]

Exercise Log 4.14.14 (Half Training Run #2)

By phoebusapollo on Mon Apr 14 2014

Half marathon program change has me doing training runs instead of leg day, and doing squats on dev day to keep my squat development continuing (just at a slower pace). So today I did a nice long run, 3 hours and 15 minutes to trek 14 miles in the hilly Frick Park (again). Not much […]

Exercise Log 4.13.14 (Moonlit Stroll through North Park, Cardio only)

By phoebusapollo on Sun Apr 13 2014

Due to weird work hours, and being ahead on my workout cycle, I designated both Saturday and Sunday as rest days. Itching to get something done outdoors though Sunday night I took a beautiful stroll through North Park with a hiking group. 3 miles at an easy pace. Nothing big, but worth logging for future […]

Exercise Log 4.7.14 (Half Training Run #1)

By phoebusapollo on Mon Apr 07 2014

Today I am doing a programming change and turning leg day into long run days. Dev day will take over my squat work, to keep my squat progression on track. This program change is only until May when I go to run the half marathon I’ve been training for. For this half training run I […]

Exercise Log 4.2.14 (Arm Day & Bouldering, No Cardio)

By phoebusapollo on Wed Apr 02 2014

Okay well today was arm day and I needed to have a good workout because it was also my birthday, and what better way to celebrate the ripe old age of 34 than to get a glory swole bicep/tricep pump. I’m going to keep this log short because the workout was simple, but it was […]

Exercise Log 3.31.14 (Spring Run ’14, Cardio only)

By phoebusapollo on Mon Mar 31 2014

Well, ran 21.45 miles today (canceled leg day to accomodate for the long run), although I admit after mile 15 I stopped maintaining a running pace and it turned into a series of walks with intermittent hobbled jogging. The total trip took 4 hours and 45 minutes, I started in Frick Park and ran down […]
