    I have to ask: what does your code means. 2.68 mile? with 2 intervals? speed at 7:24/mile?

    He prides himself on his brevity! LOL
    I believe that means 2.68 miles at 2% incline at 7:24 minute/mile pace. Right @dreamfinder ?

    Bike today.

    Yup.

    Yup. My midweek workouts take place at 5AM, so done at the gym. Weekends will depend on schedule/weather. TM is pretty uneventful, one of the reasons for my shorthand usually. I don't seem to hate it as much as most people do. Not as easy to do speed work/intervals, but I still do them occasionally. More likely to do negative splits or large intervals instead of shorter speed work intervals. Lately it's been more about getting to the gym on time and just getting something in as I have a very small window of time in the AM before I have to get on the road to commute to work.

    4 slow and easy miles this AM. Knee still not 100%, but soooo much better than last weekend. Back in training, for the 10th Anniversary Princess Half in February.

    Supposed to run yesterday, but, you know, college football Saturday. And the Noles blew a chance to beat Clemson. :(

    Tweaked my knee yesterday, so only 5@2i@9 and then 12.5 on the bike. One of those stupid annoying things, just walking and them BAM! felt like it was hyper extended. Happens every few months or so, but usually only lasts a day or two. Today was bike.

    Local Veteran's Day half marathon on Saturday. Cold and windy but sunny. My finishing time was OK considering the wind and hills. I'm going to miss those flat Disneyland races. Oh well, back to Goofy training. :arghh:

    2@2i@10. Knee still smarts a bit. Really need to find a way to make more time to do more strength/flexibility I think.

    7 miles on Saturday. 4 last night. Feel better @dreamfinder.

    Anyone have an older generation Nano with a bluetooth dongle? I'm thinking of getting a dongle so I can use wireless headphone when I run. For that matter, anyone have any wireless headphones they like/dislike? I was looking at Bragi.

    Sunday was my 19 miler....ugh. Maintained a 10:45 pace with difficulty.

    Yesterday for my ego's sake I did an 8:22 one mile "sprint" lol.

    I have both a 5th gen and Touch Nano. Use Bose SoundSport wireless earbuds. Found them on Amazon (of course). Not cheap, but instead of the funky around the ear hooks that many sports ear buds have, which don't fit my weird ears (thanks, Dad), these have soft silicone tips (come with three sizes) with a tab that fits in the grove of your ear. I got the bundled pack that included a charging case for travel. I prefer Bose - great quality and sound. And all their earbuds, whether wired or wireless, include a clip so you can clip them to your shirt or collar - I hate things bouncing on the back of my neck when running.

    They come in black, blue and citrine.

    I've been using SoundPEATS for a few years. You can probably get better sound but can't beat the price. Took me a while to figure out what ear attachment to use but once I did these things never fall out.
