Can we just round this to 5K? I'm working up my distance and down my pace with interval runs. So far so good. 

1:18 below my best pace, and a mile above my normal distance.

LOL. sure, it makes sense to text an executable & expect you to open it on iPhone/android or use wi-fi to store all files via http://dilbert.com/

The government wants to force you to have brakes, but brakes or no brakes is a personal decision. Do your research and make your own decision, for you and your family.

Another ok run this morning. I feel like I'm plateauing though. I can't seem to up my distance much without taking a big hit to my pace.

Right now I'm doing 2 miles around 2-3 times per week, and I can't seem to crack the 9:50-10:00 mark for more than 1 of those miles.

I am fairly new to running - just a little over a year. My goal is more general fitness than anything, so I'm actually going way farther and faster than I ever have before.

Where do I go from here? Do I keep up the "slow" pace and try to step up the distance and duration - or do I go faster over a shorter period and work up the distance?

Thanks for your input.

Fartleks are good too.
If you say (+Steve Giralt) that you ran for some time already, then you are probably ready to move forward and a combination of speed workouts (shorter intervals like those 100m mentioned) and VO2 max workouts (those 200m intervals), should boost your performance pretty fast.

Intervals are not very enjoyable, especially in the winter.

I'm not even blind, and I would appreciate something like that. What an amazing gift for the blind.

The more aggressive the weight loss, the harder your body will push back—and the harder it will be to succeed. You may coast off the success of the first few weeks, but with each passing day you'll utilize more willpower just to stay "good."
If you're overweight, you've probably heard the adage just "eat less, move more." Unfortunately this saying will do nothing to help you progress. Here's why.

Useful info.... alot things you can agree and disagree on.... don't rely on willpower that's true... . Also its true, the quicker the weight loss, the harder your body will push back.... It also depends on the individual if they are willing to work hard to lose the weight and exercise.

Talk about walking a mile in someone else's shoes. Props to the folks who are going through these simulations with an open mind.
It was a spilt second decision.A distressed man with a young baby in tow was pacing back and forth in a manic state and shouting incoherently.

Dear nature: WTF?

Yes, this is a snake whose tail looks like a spider. It's called, naturally enough, the spider-tailed snake, and it uses a combination of this tail and some exceptional camouflage to lure in birds and eat them. You can watch its hunting in action here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CjtQOc9euU

This has been your disturbing science for the day.

I have two grandchildren. I cannot control their school assigned reading. However I can control what they do when they are with me. They will understand and come to love at least some of the classics. 
This is why in a hundred years, we've gone from teaching Latin and Greek in high school to teaching remedial English in college.

In a word, wow. He does an amazing job. I've been to too many chiropractors who leave you wondering if you actually got adjusted. I've never had such a thorough adjustment. I would say he is fairly rough, but I was in a good deal of pain when I went for my first visit and left with very little. He warned me I would be sore afterwards and he was not kidding. This is not your kinder, gentler adjustment. That said, I betcha he could be more gentle if you asked. Your first adjustment is free and there was hardly any paperwork. The thing I appreciated most was when he told me to come back when I needed to get adjusted again. Most offices want to see you like 3-4 times/week - he just wants to see you on an as needed basis. I would recommend Dr Troy without hesitation. I will be back (pun intended).

This is a nice little shop with a very obvious family feel (which is a good thing). We ordered 2 entrées and 1 Thai iced tea. The food wasn't bad, although I've had better in other towns. The iced tea was of course excellent. My complaint was really the price - our little meal came to just under $50 - and in my mind that's high for lunch. We were traveling through town, but I probably would not visit again in the future. If you just have to have some Thai and someone else is paying I guess you could do worse.

Service here was way better than in Stevensville. I brought my car in with tires that I told the guy at the counter were not from them. I then walked back to work (about a mile away). He called me a few hours later and said it was all done and he would be coming by to drop off my car! I asked about payment and he told me not to worry about it. Now I don't expect free service, and I would have totally paid. What I am most happy with is the AWESOME service, and how they went above and beyond what I expected. I will definitely be back when it's time to purchase my next set of tires.

Excellent food. I'm not a drinker, so no idea on their beers. Quiet enough on a Monday night, we were able to enjoy a hockey game. Would highly recommend.

While I've only been once, I found the experience disappointing. I had to wait for a long time for my order, and people who had arrived and ordered after me had their orders completed before mine. I ordered one pizza, and the others who I was passed up for also ordered one on the spot. The one in Missoula is way more friendly.

Check it out for dinner, it's pretty good. Shrimp, crab, lobster if you're into those things, steak and some other good stuff if not. Watch out for the lack of chopsticks in any area besides in the little staff enclave and the awkward looks you get for walking back there and grabbing some. I'll keep coming back here, mostly because of the good food, nice people, and I mean.. it's a buffet. I paid $23 for 2 adults, 1 child, and a baby. Not too shabby.
