Small Dose of Redemption

After the debacle that was yesterday’s long run, I was expecting little from today’s morning effort. I figured to be sore, sluggish and generally apathetic. Instead, I was mildly tired and feeling not so bad. If the truth be told, I was feeling pretty okay (please note the toned down evaluation of how I actually felt). Maybe this getting serious thing is actually beginning to work out.Early in a training… Read More »Small Dose of Redemption

Long Run Does NOT Go Well!

This little guy is a bit too close to Parker Road. I shushed him away. Okay, I confess: this was probably a little more than what I should have done. I was supposed to go 13 and I was actually going to do it at the Heart and Sole Half in Boulder. Glad I didn’t drop THAT $80. I chose to run at home (home meaning Cherry Creek State Park).The… Read More »Long Run Does NOT Go Well!

“Long” Run Goes Well!

Finished off a great mileage week today with a 12 mile “long” run. I parenthesize the word long because under normal circumstances a twelve mile run would barely achieve the status medium long. But for now, I’ll take it. It was great!Spent pretty much the entire run on the trails of the Cherry Creek State Park; so close to home and so awesome. The run basically had four parts: The pavement… Read More »“Long” Run Goes Well!

High (Low) Fives All Around

For the third day in a row no tornado warnings, no hail, no rain. Must be living the charmed life. Today’s 9 mile run was the best of times and the worst of times. In my mind, it was a piece of cake (“never say piece of cake” – Billy Crystal in Forget Paris). In my body… not so much. Tired…… sluggish….. just plain exhausted. Not sure the origins of this… Read More »High (Low) Fives All Around

Video Report #1

A nice 8 miles in the woods today after 12 yesterday (went over 104,000 miles on the twelve miler). Surprised I could walk. The key was water and my Roll Recovery.

Today I… Read More »Video Report #1

Get Serious

After a half year of putzing around, gaining weight, being injured and being busy. It’s time to get serious. I guess after almost 48 years of running, I deserve a break, but it didn’t feel like that. It’s been awful. So I’m back and this time it’s serious.Goal #1: Fifty pounds gone by summer’s end. Eating healthier (cutting out the grain for two months, then we’ll see), running more and… Read More »Get Serious
