Tremendous Outdoor Run

Well, I don’t know where that came from.

Got outside today and a cold but mostly sunny February day and did the usual four miler up Westlake (the path across the bridge is now open again). Pretty sure it’s my first time doing 4 miles since New year’s day. Morever, after quite a bit of slow running (which I had come to peace with BTW) I turned in a rather blistering pace. Part of that was because I had a mandatory 5 minute break at the 2 mile mark, being caught by the Fremont Bridge going up. But that wasn’t all of it by any means. I kept a good steady pace throughout, and never thought of stopping at any point. Even so, I was astonished to run four miles at a pace that low. I’m guessing it has been a couple years since I did that.

Three outside

I’m totally guessing about the pace here, because it turns out I left my watch at home. I rather enjoyed not being about to know how fast (or slow) I was going for once.

Treadmill Run in Cupertino

Had about 30 minutes between work and meeting someone for a drink, and decided that (a) one mile on the treadmill would be better than nothing at all, and (b) I probably wouldn’t manage to do better if I waited until the next morning. As it is, I managed 1.5.

Hoops! Monster Double-Header

Double-header tonight. I went in pleading that I might not be able to run that much, and wound up running a lot, as I felt pretty great. Of the two hours of game time I’d say I played 1.5. I didn’t play very well, mind you, but we were short bigs and I played center the whole time without disgracing myself overmuch. Unfortunately we lost both games. Probably we should have one at least one of them, but I’m not sure which one.

Injury Run

I guess I should not have been out there today. Tried to run outside, though feeling a bit sore, and had to abandon the project at about the 1.25 mark because my calf was too sore. Ran/walked back to SLU park, which explains the overall quite slow time. Need to rest it a bit.

Lovely Outdoor Run in January!

Record-setting warm weather in January today, so I went for an outdoor run. Did my usual 4 mile route up Westlake, only to discover that my lane of the Fremont bridge is STILL closed to foot traffic, all these months later. I wasn’t going to bother with crossing the busy road twice just for the last .25, so I cut that part off, and thus ended with a shorter run than usual. But it felt great to be back outside. I DO seem to run at a much faster pace outside…

Hoops! The Less than Triumphant Follow Up

Second game back, and oddly this one felt MUCH worse than the first one. Of course that may be because I went home and had a bit of a heavy dinner before I went out there. In any event, I felt winded the whole game, and didn’t score a single point. And we lost, badly, ending an 8 game win streak.
