Gang Run

60 minutes of slow running with the gang ( Tom, Danny, Rick ) at WVC. Walking to cool down afterwards. The weather is incredible.

Reps

Drove over to WVC both Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday was a non starter. My plan was to run 40 minutes easy, but instead I ran and walked for 30 minutes ( mostly walking ).

Sunday was business as usual but over at WVC.  Dimitri and I did a 20 minute warmup followed by:

400 in 1:42
400 in 1:40
400 in 1:40
500 in 2:10 (1:38-400 )
400 in 1:36
400 in 1:36

200 meter recovery between each rep.

The weather was cool and breezy on the backside.

Dragging

Ran another of those easy 60 minute workouts. I was scheduled to do reps but was dragging a bit so I passed. Tom and Danny joined me. Beautiful weather continues.

200 club

Rick and Tom and I jogged 60 minutes. We're all members of the 200% club. That means we now take twice as long to run a distance in comparison to our best days.

Example of the 200 club for a three mile training run.


1970's and 80's: 3 miles in 19:30

Now: 3 miles in 39:00

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.

Hippy

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.
