Yesterday - 6 mile AM run - nice tempo, climbed in the afternoon, 2 mile PM run.

Today, hit the heat

Heard the team might be short a runner for the relay. Might have to do 4 legs. I will be doing more doubles, even if they are short, to get me legs and head accustomed to running tired.

Hour and 15 min. run at a place I hadn't been to in over a decade. Saw deer and three wild turkeys. Hilly and fun.

We should run together someday Sully. My new Garmin GPS watch with constant feedback has me running faster than in a long time. I mightt even be able to keep you in sight!

Well, I went to the century ride in Flagstaff last Saturday. As I was reading the pre-ride information I saw they had a cut-off time for the century riders.
2.5 hours to be at the 43 mile point, and 8 hours to complete the ride or be picked up by the sag wagon.

This bummed me out. I really wanted to do the full century. I know how fast I can ride, and making it to the 43 mile point in 2.5 would have required me to push way too hard early in the ride. My strategy was to really take it easy on the first half since the real climbing started at the 60 mile point.

Anyway, I switched and did the 65 miler instead. I did it in 4:24.00 which I was more than happy with. I am still bummed I didn't get to ride the full century (which I had trained for, and I know I could have made, only in more like 8.5 - 9 hours instead of the 8 hours alotted)

I just wish they could have put that information on the website with the course descriptions and ride profiles.

Now, I have to find another one . . .

Jaybro, I'm slow these days. I'll run with anyone willing to join the shuffle. Running at locations where I once ran well. So my tick list continues. Next stops are Huddart Park(Woodside) and The Forest of Nisene Marks(Aptos).

Good job Sully, old trails are the best, triggers all sorts of great memories.

Been averaging about 75 miles a day on the bike, 35 in the morning 40 in the evening with a two mile swim along the Gulf every other day.

Did my first-ever solo century this morning, no stops.

http://app.strava.com/activities/69541867

It's amazing what the body can do on very little food. I had a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, and all I had on the ride was 3oz of Hammer Gel (Espresso, tastes like chocolate pudding). Got a PR on a longish Strava segment in the last 10 miles (end of bike path to Golden Gate Bridge).

Here's the heart-rate breakdown:

Next I'm gonna ride my 30lb Shít Bike™ to the Giants game at AT&T Park. Wish me luck!

8 mile run in the GA sultry summer. (temperatures are down this summer; we're having a wet one with nothing higher than 93º so far. The humidity was 99% when I ran with a temp of 75º at 6:30 a.m..

Speed work on track plus 2 mile warm up and 2 mile cool down on rails to trails

I will hit 1000 mile mark for this year at the end of July (should have been there but injuries and illness syndrome stopped me).

I try to get 1 half marathon, or somehow equivalent once a month. Since December 2011. I think that's as close as I'm gonna get for July '13

I've been running 35+ years, with some time off at several junctures due to long term injuries and health issues. I can't count the number of 5 & 10K's; but I can count the number of 15K's, half and full marathons. 2,2 and 0 respectfully. I had to scratch on a marathon, the morning of the race.

I am on the way to a half in November and the Rocket City Marathon in December.

6ish around parts of Baltimore some of which served as sets for The Wire; not sold on the whole plywood-window craze around here. Here for 10 days; thinking of checking out the EarthTreks climbing gym...

An hour's muggy thrash through a spider-webby, overgrown mess that somehow topped the list in an article about the best trails in the Baltimore area.

Ran a Rancho trail I hadn't in awhile. Reached the 1 1/2 hour mark feeling great.

Seamstress, how'd the relay go? Did you run the extra leg?
