Back in Seattle and a strong run on the lake

Desperately needed a run after a long week of travel and work, and had an opening at lunch today. A really good pace, considering I felt out of shape. My time was helped by the drawbridge going up while I was on the other side, which gave me a forced 3 minute break at just past the half-way point.

Back Country Run in Virginia

Attending a retreat in Virginia, and had a little time off in the afternoon. Went running on a path in the the woods. Don’t really know how long it was, but I’m guessing about 2.5 based on the time I ran. Very pleasant running through the woods–no bugs, not too humid, but I had a tough time with the hills. Not a great run, but great to get it in.

Lake Washington Run

Runs have been sorely needed in this spring of heavy travel. I have hardly had any weekend runs…big reason for that is to fit them in they have to be first thing in the morning, and that seems to be harder for me these days. Takes longer to stretch out. Although I suspect that may also be habit. Any way, this morning I was determined to do something/anything, no matter how short or slow. So made it down to the Lake and ran south from the Madrona beach parking lot…managed a round trip of about 4.5 miles. TIme deceptively fast, as I took a break of a couple minutes enjoying the fishing pier at the turnaround point and subtracted that from the total. In reality it was a slow and painful start, but felt quite good at the end.

Post-vacation run

Didn’t manage any runs on my brief visit to San Diego, even though I quite liked running on the beach last year. Everything seemed to hurt a little this year when I was out there (knee, hip, etc.) so I didn’t even try. Today, first day back, I was pleased to have a very nice run. The time’s a little flattering because I got a 2:30 minute rest holdup with the bridge open, but I’ll take it. Feels great to get one in.

Hoops! Disappointing Loss

And that’s putting it mildly. We shoulda killed that team. As it was we had our chances to win, but just couldn’t close the last three point gap. I had a weird day–made some tough shots, but missed some point blank bunnies. Yeesh–one to forget.

Much needed run

Wasn’t able to get any workouts in on a long East coast trip, and was too slammed to get to the gym the first two games back. Saw a brief window to spend 20 minutes on the treadmill and took it. Was willing to start nice and slow, until ultimately closing at my usual pace. Wasn’t much but felt great.

Hoops - Satisfying win

Started with four, and as always, the short-handed team actually does better for that brief period of time. Teams played close for the first half but those younger boys ranĀ  out of gas early in the second half, and we put them away. I had a decent game–scored 8 or 10.
