Long Run I nicknamed this run “The Hurtlocker: Alevkaya”. It had some pretty tough uphill sections and the heat and humidity was incredibly intense, even though I started at 6:30am. Despite that, I actually felt quite good throughout. I have felt far worse after completing shorter runs, so this is a good indication that my …

Long Run Jetlagged and downtrodden from my return to Cyprus from Montenegro and a couple of “meh” runs, I set out this weekend to explore some of the E4 spur that I discovered a couple weeks ago near one of my favorite trails. This ended up being a really nice find and I was able …

Long Run I needed to make a bit of a comeback this week after not doing a long run last weekend. Life got in the way, as it sometimes does, and so I skipped it altogether and just went ahead with my normal training schedule. I’m still in Montenegro, so using Google Maps, Strava, and …

Long Run I didn’t do a long run this week. GASP! I am travelling around in Montenegro and had too much going on this weekend to fit in a 22-mile run was was planned. But, life happens. It’s also really hot here (a little too similar to Cyprus, if you ask me!), so if I …

Long Run My long run this weekend was actually two back-to-back medium runs. The first was 15mi on a familiar trail close to home, and the second was 10mi on an even more familiar route even closer to home. The idea behind back-to-back runs like these is to get used to running on tired and …

Long Run For my long run, I went for 20 miles on a tough section of the Besparmak Trail in Northern Cyprus. This was a real “going to the well to see God” run, i.e. one of the hard-effort runs in my training cycle. The heat is getting unreal during the day, so I left …

Long Run My long run this week only needed to be about 13mi, and knowing I would be in Romania I did a quick Segment Search on Strava to find where people were running in the area. I found a nice route not far from the hotel that seemed to offer the right distance and …

Long Run This weekend I was back in my old stomping grounds in the Kyrenia mountains and did a nice tough 18-miler. I started a bit earlier than normal to get more of the cooler weather and it worked out great. It was a tough section of the Two Castles Mountain Ultra course with a …

Long Run There was a rally car race in Nicosia today and so the crossing I usually use to go the North and run in the Kyrenia mountains was closed. That being the case, I decided to revisit one of my favorite routes just outside of the city where I did a couple loops and …

Long Run My long run this week was my race! I was in Slovenia all week and so I didn’t get much running in, but it was a taper week anyway so it was nothing to stress over. See below for the stats. We began at 5:30am and it took me just under 6 hours …
