span style=”font-size:85%;”span style=”font-family:arial;”Hi all,/span span style=”font-family:arial;”br /br /I’m new to the group, and since I have to be out of state this summer (unfortunately), I thought I should post something so I’m not totally forgotten so soon after I met most of you…/span span style=”font-family:arial;”br /br /Summer has been hectic…here’s a summary: I was married on May 23rd in Minneapolis, and then left for 10 days in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Less than a week after I returned to Minneapolis, I left for 10 days in Japan. I presented a paper at a circuit design conference, but figured as long as I’d be half way around the world, I really had to spend some time touring. Less than a week after I got back from Japan, I moved to Austin, TX for a few months to do another internship with IBM Research. I’m about ready to finish my PhD in CMOS circuit design at the U of MN, but it’s not a great time to be looking for jobs, so I’m kind of waiting out the worst part of the recession before finishing up. Therefore, coming back to Austin (for my 3rd stint here) provided me with a chance to get some more experience and earn a decent paycheck for awhile./span span style=”font-family:arial;”br /br /The summer in Austin is always a killer, but this summer has been one of their worst ever. The high temp has been over 100 almost every day since I arrived at the end of June. And, no, it’s NOT a dry heat. So although the temps “cool down” to a little under 80F in the early morning, the humidity is usually ~80%. There is no choice but to deal with this if you want to run or rollerski outdoors, so we just get used to it and accept that paces won’t be quite as fast./span span style=”font-family:arial;”br /br /Although some weekend traveling has interrupted my training schedule a couple times, here is a normal week for me now:/spanbr /br /span style=”font-family:arial;”M: 11-12 mile run, lift/span span style=”font-family:arial;”br /Tu: 11-12 mile run with 30 min tempo (~5:30 pace), lift/span span style=”font-family:arial;”br /W: 1:10-1:20 rollerski/span span style=”font-family:arial;”br /Th: 10 mile run with speed work (track or fartlek), lift/span span style=”font-family:arial;”br /F: 11-13 mile run, lift/span span style=”font-family:arial;”br /Sa: 15+ mile run/span span style=”font-family:arial;”br /Su: long-ish rollerski (hope to be getting this to 2.5+ hours soon)/span span style=”font-family:arial;”br /br /Hope you are all enjoying the cool weather up north!/span span style=”font-family:arial;”br /br /John/span span style=”font-family:arial;”br /br /ps. here are some pics from my travels:br /br //span /spandiv style=”text-align: center;font-family:arial;”span style=”font-size:85%;”a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_BHb-Q9fL1qI/Sn2lpNtnxRI/AAAAAAAABvU/P5tKnKxK514/s1600-h/DSCN0217.JPG”img style=”margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 240px;” src=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_BHb-Q9fL1qI/Sn2lpNtnxRI/AAAAAAAABvU/P5tKnKxK514/s320/DSCN0217.JPG” alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5367628458369729810″ border=”0″ //a/spanspan style=”font-weight: bold;font-size:85%;” The new wife (Sarah) and I in Mexico./spanspan style=”font-size:85%;”br /br //span/divspan style=”font-size:85%;” /spandiv style=”text-align: center;font-family:arial;”span style=”font-size:85%;”a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_BHb-Q9fL1qI/Sn2lo1gyzmI/AAAAAAAABvM/UXKOJQaUNOI/s1600-h/John_KaminarimonGate_SensojiTemple.JPG”img style=”margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 240px;” src=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_BHb-Q9fL1qI/Sn2lo1gyzmI/AAAAAAAABvM/UXKOJQaUNOI/s320/John_KaminarimonGate_SensojiTemple.JPG” alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5367628451873476194″ border=”0″ //a/spanspan style=”font-weight: bold;font-size:85%;” class=”gphoto-photocaption-caption” Sensōji Temple in Asakusa.
