Running Summary Aug. 31th – Sept. 6th 2014

Total mileage for the week was 41.4 miles. Still pressing on several runs and started to do 2 speed works a week. My 400 interval work on Thursday was cut short because of time and my hamstrings started to get tight. The tight hamstrings caused me to dial back the distance and intensity of my Friday and Saturday runs.

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.
