Running Summary August 10th – 16th 2014

This week I continued to work on increasing my distance while trying to press for a faster pace. I ran a total of 34 miles and did a timed 1 mile on Tuesday. The timed mile was using RunKeeper running on a paved running trail. I think I could have pressed harder on a track. It’s really hard to push the last quarter when your not sure where the finish line is on a trail.  I did the mile in 6 minutes and 23 seconds. This new mile time seemed to flip something in my longer runs because I felt really good on my 6 and 11 mile runs later in the week. On my 11 mile run this week my average pace dropped almost 45 seconds a mile from my 10 mile run the week before. Overall it was a really good week.

I began programming in C++ when I was in college. Odd for a business major, but hey I am a Dork. After college I got a job as System Administrator. As a System Administrator I was in charge of web administration. My journey as a PHP web developer had begun. Since that time I have gained an in depth knowledge of CSS, Javascript, XML and MySQL. With changes and advances to technology I have also began learning AJAX. I started Blue Fire Development to do freelance work in my spare time.
