i love chopping wood.
that's my digs.
i hate running.
but i'll go bust through 20 rounds
in a sesh,
especially satisfying in these heat waves.
my wood crib is bulging,
and winter is still months off.

I'm impressed with you runners, my Mom was a fan for over 60 years before she stopped.

Osgood–Schlatter disease made me hate the sport at a young age and I've never got over it, so I started cycling and got over it.

How come you never see runners smile?

Oh sure they smile when they stop running but never during, always that painful expression.

I pass cyclists, rollerbladers. skaters, we're all smiling, runners look like they are passing a gallstone.

Running = Joy most days.

Now I am hyperventilating. Why? Beacause I went down to the locker room for my mid-day run and discovered that I forgot to pack shorts. Now the whole staff has to suffer because I did not get my prescribed stress relief run yet.

Tapering down this week. Sunday is Fueled by Fine Wine, a lovely 1/2 marathon through brutally hilly vineyards. 10 for scenery and torture. Also will score a 10 for obscenely early race. By 9 AM, I will be over the finish line and at the tasting tent with my souvenir wine glass.

I guess it will be 5 miles this evening, 4 miles tomorrow, rescue drill on Saturday, then 13 miles of sidehills through steep jory soil....

I've got back to back 10ks in just over a week and have been doing a lot of speedwork and have run the past 7 days straight. I crashed at a pathetic 3.3 miles today. May RD 2 days and run 13 with the group Sunday or try again tomorrow and only do the 7 Sunday. Need to taper a bit for the 2 races.

Worked a rescue drill and area familiarization. Not very aerobic. 1/2 marathon in the morning. Finished that all important carbo load, and will crash shortly. 1 1/2 hour drive to a 7 AM start - YIKES - for a brutal run through vineyards. Looking forward to the finish.

Optimistically I packed the car with climbing gear thinking we could stop after the race. 20 years ago, I know I would. Let's see what the old girl has in her tank tomorrow.

I'm drinking coffee right now, getting ready for about 6 hours on the bike. This will be my longest ride yet. The 60 I did day before yesterday really wiped me out, so we'll see how this goes.

I'm a little nervous about this century ride next weekend. This will be my first. The thing is that the crux of the ride comes after the 60 mile point (about an 18 mile hill climb). I just hope my pistons will have enough left to crank out that hill late in the ride like that.

Power vibes to you Reeotch, this morning and on next weeks century.
I'm doing my coffee before a medium trailrun.


Edit; did a seven mile Fivefinger trailrun on the headquarters trail. On to the crags!

Reeotch, staying properly hydrated on long rides is your friend. I've done several centuries over the years and average about 280 miles a week these days. Water is not enough since your body needs protein and carbs on that long a ride and liquid nutrition is better than a pbj sandwich.

I'm a big fan of hammer nutrition for endurance rides, not a sponsor or salesman, but the stuff works.

Mt. Elbert South trail yesterday. 4,800 elevation gain and about 5 miles one way to the summit, in about 3 hours.

Three Triathlon deaths I can see, so far, this w/e. May be more dangerous than climbing.

Only 11 miles. Came out too fast in the heat and got beat up on the hills.

Rick, you probably smoked some 20-somethings out there. Nice.

The old lady finished around the 25% mark in a field of 1,300 deranged people accumulating personal worsts for a 1/2 marathon. The 1.5 miles inside the Lange vineyard reached new levels of ridiculous - it seemed that the soil was freshly tilled on the steep uphill.

At the finish, we were confronted with yet another endurance feat. 30 vineyards were providing 2 - 3 tastings. My pacing was good.

Visitors - I have piles of coupons for tastings in the Dundee Hills.

Next up - the Cascade Lakes Relay. 12 women and 200 mountain miles.
