Jaybro's always doing something like that. Sully that is very impressive marathon speed. Last winter I ran on a treadmill for 30 minutes, my basic speed is 7:30/mi and I was just trying to get comfortable at the 7:00 min pace. (for 4 mi) But that is really pushing it for me. Since the weather got nice I'm running outside, a 7 mile trail run 4 times a week, and I think I'm maintaining the 7:30 pace. A few years ago I would have been at the 9 or 10 min pace trying to run 15 miles, but I found that just injured me. I am still a little weak in the forearms but its bouldering season now too.

^^^^. Yeah Ms Elite Runner....I never got the speed thing, just endurance...the b&w pic looks like one of those old classics where some guy looks like he's going to shove you off the course because women aren't supposed to be running marathons. And the guy next to you looks like the puke factor is kicking in.

Glad the knee is healing up.

Hope to catch up with you soon...

Ha ha Susan! That's what I thought too. My first thought was what's her name in the Boston marathon!

50k mtn bike ride often paved and sometimes technical.
From "Negro bill" (William Grandstaff) canyon along the grand (colo) river to the bike trail north. Up the hill (grunt) to the Moab brand trails and beyond a short way up the Gemini trail,. A little "E-Z" action and back down the hill to Moab, including a (mercifully brief) stop at the slackline park!

Taking time out to smell the flowers;

I've done a few 90 mile plus bike rides over the years, but never had broken the 100 mile barrier. So last week I put on my favorite bike socks and gave it a go. Davis to lake Berryessa then down to Napa valley and back to Davis. Nice ride. Legs could have taken a lot more, but my feet were cramping up much of the way which meant I was glad when it was over.

The loop I took was actually 95 miles or so, so when I got to town I turned around and headed back out to make up another 5 miles. Arrived home still a bit short so I went around the block two times until the odometer clicked over to the big 100. Next goal a double century. But it will take a bit more training. Ha

Did that Smith Rock 15 mile trail run - splatted in front of the second aid station. Grandma got up and kept going.

Ran the Happy Girls Half in Bend and took my age group. Not happy with the time, but happy to have negative splits.

Now the weight lifting season is over, and I hope fresher legs let me train and run faster. Got in 8 miles with a big hill today instead of jogging post weight lifting....

I like working on my strength and power. The trainer thinks my refusal to take a true day of rest leads to cumulative fatigue. I seemed to have a good second half of the year once I suspended going to the gym. Looking forward to the change of seasons.

Next race will be the brutal Fueled by Fine Wine. This course does not result in fast times. It does generally yield a nice bottle for age group people and many coupons for free wine tasting. Lovely romp through the rows of vines.

Way to go Seamstress. I know I ask about Hood to Coast every year, but do you think you'll ever do it again? Had a knee scare, but can almost bend it all the way back. Running is helping it heal, but boy am I rusty. Lost 14 lbs. since last summer, so I'm nearing my running weight.

I decided to finally "check in" on this thread for the first time, as I just started using Strava app (on iPhone), and it's a hoot!
Here's a solo road-bike ride I did today:

Still had 37% battery left. ;-)

Of course I'll do Hood to Coast again - but my team's application was not chosen in the lottery this year. Sleep deprivation contests are my favorite. THe Cascade Lakes Relay will be an interesting relay change of pace. I'm thinking that the smaller field and more remote course will give it a different kind of charm. I hope we do get routed to see many lake views.

I had knee surgery 14 years ago. They said I would never run again. That translates into one marathon every two years instead of two per year. Sully, you can reclaim the runner inside you again.

Fabulous run today. The Rose Garden is all a-bloom. 8 miles including the Arboretum and the Rose Garden. For an 8 mile city run, 5 miles are on trails or park streets with virtually no traffic.

Legs are starting to feel more lively. Today I enjoyed it instead of lived through it. Celebrate. Happy dance.

I've been getting in shape doing laps to the local taverns but it does take its toll.

Stupid bike.

Biking alot this summer. Enjoying it tons...easier on knees than my beloved running. Trying to get at least 2500-3200 feet in every couple days.
This morning, HOT, 2800 feet of climbing around Lower Mt. Madonna...with a stop at Gizdich Ranch of course! This is a short but steep ride (20 miles). On cycling GPS "laps" are in 5 mile increments.

I've been lazy since the Zion traverse, but last weekend did 26.2 from Lake Hodges to Woodson and back. It was 26 exactly, so we did .1 each way to the gas station to grab a beer.

No sooner did we open it did 5-0 pull up... oops.

32.3 miles run so far this week, 2 hours swimming in the ocean. Training for Sat/Sun back to back 10ks in less than 4 weeks. Try to PR the second. The heat always kills me in July races, I'm trying to train above the HM level to compensate.
