Absolutely! I actually haven't made it to Central Park to run yet myself!!! Haha.... I have been meaning to get over there for a long run on a weekend one of these days (I live in Brooklyn so I would have to take the subway over there, so it's not really an option on a work day). I like to try to do cool long runs on weekends when time allows....I did one where I ran over the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan, through Chinatown, and then back to Brooklyn over the Manhattan Bridge and finished in Brooklyn Bridge Park. That was one amazing run. I plan to run a 10K in Central Park on April 6th though if I can continue to run without any more ITB issues, and looking forward to it!

Kristin - Faster cadence and shorter stride dropped almost a full minute off my pace, that would be my bet Glad you were able to have a good, pain-free run!

Interesting.... I wish I knew about the fact that I was overstriding a lot sooner...maybe I would be speedier and not injured haha.

Just checked into a hotel with a broken treadmill. There's a winter storm rolling in. Looks like I'm headed to a Planet Fitness, and I swore to never set foot in one of those places. Argh! Places like Planet Fitness used to turn away me and my powerlifting brothers. Now, I'm a runner and they'll gladly take my money.

6.36am where I am and I have already done most of my work..
Jack, haven't tried the Newton but had a friend who got PF after taking it to FM.. Maybe too flexible for him but he did it on a HM before the full and came up fine..
2XU HM - 29 Mar
Do you know how hard it is to workout when the people working at the gym are eating deep dish pizza?
Awood.. haa.. That's a little inconsiderate.. Don't they all eat like Ben stiller in Dodge ball?
Awood that sucks about the TM
So I'm off to yoga.... Usually I will either go to yoga 4:30 on Friday or 1:30 on Saturday. But the weather is likely going to be really bad at both times....so I'm being Pre-emptive and going to an 8:30-10:00pm class now. Usually I'm too wiped after a 10.5 hour work day, but since I was off my full time job today I have plenty of energy for it. I think it will cap off a great day
I just cranked some GnR and tried to forget where I was.I felt like a trader going into a gym that slams meatheads and lunks on their sign, only to greet you with a sign inside that says, "no judgement zone", "you belong". Should read, "hypocracy is delicious with deep dish pizza".
Sorry guys. I should just be greatful that I got a run in. Even if it did cost $20. Damn...there I go again. I'm done.
I wouldn't mind the pizza, as long as they gave me a slice. If not, I'd stop on my way back to the hotel and get my own. I hope your travels didn't take you into the storm zone. It's supposed to start earlier than expected.
Kristin - have fun with your yoga. Sounds like a good idea taking advantage of the calm before the storm. Sounds like you won't get out much this weekend. I did a yoga video this afternoon after my run. It's a nice way to stretch out.
Ginny - 8 inches by morning. Its coming down like crazy. The gym took more money than I expected. So, I didn't have money for anything on the way to the hotel. I got some peanut M&M's from the vending machine for dinner with a diet Dew. This trip has run a muck.
Awood - that's hard. I've had cookies for dinner, when backpacking in bad weather, but M & M's just wouldn't hold me long.
