Real hills

I finally got back to running real hills again. Dimitri and I ran up Moody to Palo Alto park and back. We took it nice and slow arriving back at 76 minutes and change. I do admit to walking some of the uphill simply to go easy on the calf.

My left hip was bothering me so I popped some ibuprofen. I drove over to the club and ran and walked for 50 minutes. I'd say 80% was pure running including a warm down around campus with some faster guys at a faster pace.  I felt good. Flowed along with little or no strain. Ice and more ibuprofen on tap for today.

Not too shabby

I ran 5 miles give or take this morning. Tom and I warmed up and then, joined by Danny, I proceeded to do 6 x 400 at fast ( for me ) tempo. 1:45-42-39-37-36-34. 200 recovery in between. I'm getting partial to 400's.

1:38-39 average. Age graded to 72 seconds. Not too shabby for 69.

Very Easy Day

Ran and walked for 70 minutes. Tom, Danny and Rick accompanied me. Used a 2-1 ratio for an hour which made it very easy. Walked for recovery. My legs felt decent after yesterday's massage. The weather has cooled off. Sunny but with heavy clouds coming from the southwest. The wind had picked up by breakfast time.

I walked and ran 6 miles this morning. Stayed low versus running hills. Dimitri and I jogged around Foothill College Track so slow that everyone was passing us. Business as usual. I didn't sleep that well last night and felt sluggish so I decided to do something but not too tough.

Something ended up being 6 x 200 relaxed tempo. Started at 48 and dropped down to 44.  I was more than happy with the results.

40 minutes peppered

Ran a very easy 40 minutes this morning. Peppered the running with walking breaks. The club ran 3 x 1600 on the track. Danny dropped in a sub 7 minute mile. Not bad for 67 years old.

It was cool and overcast. Fall's coming!!!!

Wow! Another cool morning. Tom and I ran 65 minutes (4-1). I decided not to run tempo for no good reason. Jus' felt like running and chatting so that's what we did. Danny bailed because he had a cold but joined me for breakfast. Tom ran but bailed on breakfast.

I'm thinking "time trial" for Sunday.
