Running Summary Oct. 5th – 11th 2014

This week I ran 41.8 miles. I won’t be talking about the 5k on Sunday. If you are interested the in-depth post can be found here. It took several days to feel good on my normal runs. I wouldn’t have thought a 5k would have left me so sore. For the next few weeks I won’t be doing any speed work just keeping my distance up.

I’ve been thinking of starting to run commuting in the spring. So on Saturday I did an 11.58 mile run into work. The run went well considering the hills. The run into work is no problem, the full distance will be a little over 6 miles. The run home starts with over a mile of hill with almost 500 ft of elevation gain. Luckily run commuting will give me an 8 hour break between runs unlike this test.

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.
