Busy busy at work, working on other things at home, the better half seriously sick, holiday season …. haven’t had much time, desire or motivation to blog, so I’m finally just gonna squeeze out a log.
When I last left off a couple weeks ago, I had just done circuit. That Thursday was a 600/400 workout, which was a nice change of pace. I remember telling G. how sore I was from circuit, and he said it was because I was weak and didn’t eat my veggies. Anyway, we were supposed to take “at least 2 minutes” on our 200m trot between the 600 and 400, but we never took more than 1.40, which sucked. we really need that “pace of reason” on the warmup and cool down too.
Saturday the 9th I was supposed to meet Pat-o Legat-o for our long run, but I overslept. He did 17 or 18 and I did 7 at the TLT on Sunday morning. Times were something like 7.35 … to … 6.35 with a total of 48.30 or something? Can’t remember, but it was just under 7 per.
The 12th was Wilke and I did 10. Felt fine. If I remember it felt almost Summer-esque.
13th I probably did 3 around the hood.
14th was Tempo: 6.29, 6.26, 6.05, 6.10 = 25.12 = 8 second PR. It was a good hard run. A little wobbly on the last mile but I never felt over-extended.
This last Saturday I hit a curveball and went for a 8-9 mile trailrun on the BC greenbelt with J-Rey. Distractingly lovely change of pace. I did fall on some rocks. The rocks were hard. My tailbone is fractured. But I thoroughly enjoyed the run. You lose track of time/distance out there and that’s good sometimes. The pounding (when you don’t fall) is less than pavement/TLT. Scenery goes by. Look forward to doing it again soon.
I keep meaning to get back into the Monday water bomb run, but I don’t and haven’t.
“Secret Hill” was on the agenda for Tuesday (19th). Turned out to be Spring Creek, near Wilke, and I did seven of those. I think I wheezed on my final breath on the final repeat. Threw me for a loop. It was humid. I was shirtless. Going backwards up hills sucks.
Yesterday was another lame 3 mile “loosen up” jog around the neighborhood.
I couldnt make it to class today. Taking care of the sick wife, bored children.
That is all.
clever title, although I was expecting some sort of “Yule” reference.
