Easy peasy

I took it easy peasy this week running 70 minutes on Tuesday and 60 minutes on Thursday. Low heart rate efforts. It heated up on the second day. Danny and Tom both days. Danny gone the next two weeks and Tom leaves the week after next. I'll be back to running alone for a week or two.

Time trial postponed

Saturday: easy 30 minute run. Cut back for time trial on Sunday.



My buddy and I are jogging to the start of the time trial course and suddenly we stop because a giant tree has fallen across the path ON THE COURSE totally blocking it about 400 meters in.

Soooo, we jogged over to the local high school track and ran 3000 meters of 350 at AT effort and 50 meters of walking. The wind had kicked up, but surprisingly the 350's were at 6:40-50 pace. Even with the 50 meter walk breaks the 3000 was faster than my last AT effort 3000 of 2-3 weeks ago. 

Anyway, hopefully they get the tree cleared and we'll go for it again in several weeks. 

Sunday was a 70 minute total workout...

2 x 70


Two 70 minute easy runs. Cool weather. Sunny skies. Some wind.

Legs feel good.

Hitting on all cylinders

Saturday: 45 minute run at 65-70% of max. I moved along nailing 8:30-9:00 minute mile pace. I'm not sure what was going on. I was hitting on all cylinders. Age graded, this is like running 6:30 pace or faster back in my 30's.

Sunday: very easy hilly run through Saratoga with D. I purposely kept my heart rate low.

Both Tuesday and Thursday's runs were 60 minutes 65-70% affairs. Tom returned on Thursday. I burned him off in 45 minutes of 65% running. It wasn't intentional. Between beta blockers and two week walking vacations, he's just not in good shape to run.

It's getting warmer

Saturday: 30 minutes of easy running. 55 minute dog walk later on,

Sunday: 70 minutes of striding straights and strong running.

I noticed that it's beginning to warm up.

Tuesday: 70 minutes of fairly strong running. Focused on 350-50 EVA run-walk. Got into the low nines. Felt strong throughout. My heart rate was rarely above 135. Fastest recovery run in a while.

Thursday: 60 minutes of the same. Feeling pretty strong.

Jogged an easy 35 minutes Saturday followed by an hour walk with Lucy.

Sunday included a 32 minute easy warmup jog, 3000 meter AT run and an 18 minute slow warm down jog. The 3000 was faster than last time. 14:54 or 14 seconds quicker. I was a bit washed out...dieting I think. Trying to lose five pounds. That and a bit of a headwind going out made it more challenging.

At least I've breeched 15. It's progress.

ME = Really Really Slow

Danny and I dragged ass at the slowest pace possible for sixty minutes. My heart rate was super MAF. 110-115. I think this is a new record for low HR. Actually it felt really good. The weather was sunny and cool.
