2014 Happy Trails

Saturday - July 20

Run
  • 1h 33m 33s
  • 10.00 miles
  • 09m 21s /Mi

Lapham Peak. same route as last week, just a bit shorter because of time. As always distance is an estimate. Negative split got love that.
out: 47:27 (9:29 pace) 46:05 (9:13)

Beautiful day to run in the woods. (isn't everyday.) After a tough week of stress, little sleep (three nights to bed after 1), humidity and not much running, this was just what the doctor ordered. Although I don't think the doctor ordered the fall I took two minutes into run as I tripped on a rock. As the old saying goes, I picked myself up, brushed myself off and kept going. After that things went quite well. Continue to be pleased with my strength going up hills. Last couple of miles put the pedal down as I was trying to prevent a guy behind me from catching me. (mission accomplished) Whatever it takes.

Friday - July 19

As life and my schedule give me a beatdown, this ended being third 'rest day' for the week.

Thursday - July 18

Run
  • 37m 17s
  • 4.00 miles
  • 09m 19s /Mi

yuck.

Well once again BT is not letting me add a run because I am logging this on Friday. arrgh! Since all I really do is run these days, this is a problem. May have to consider finding a different place to log my running. :( Well with heat (upper '80s) and dew point in the 70's, even at 8:15 pm at night, was not much fun.

UPDATE: once I put in a blog entry, it let me add my run. Still quite the pain in the backside. Just want to log, without a lot of headaches.

Wednesday - July 17

Did not get up early to run this am because was at the Paul McCartney concert last night with my daughter. That fella can sure put on a show. Will probably trudge through some kind of run in the heat and humidity tonight.

Tuesday - July 16

Run
  • 27m 58s
  • 3.00 miles
  • 09m 19s /Mi

sluggish recovery run. Lots of little aches and such starting out. way-high humidity had me as wet as a sponge.

Beautiful morning run on the way to Pewaukee tri

  • 09m 07s /Mi

return trip from Pewaukee around lake on Glacier road and Maple. some 'fun' hills on course in reverse.

Sport
  • Stretching
  • 10m
Decided to do something different for my long run and head down to the Pewaukee Tri. Got up at crack of early and it was so worth it. Got to see sun rise over Pewaukee lake (more beautiful than it sounds) saw lots of nature, including a close encounter with a deer. Took the Lake Country trail for some of this. As I arrived Elites were just starting bike and saw Lisa, zip past. Had fun watching some of the tri. Was like old times hanging out with Dave, Pete, Terri and Clint. Looking at swim course gave me a little jumbly stomach, just like old times. Decided to return trip on bike course (with some detours) in reverse. Saw Clint out there and gave him a shout out. All in all was a fun morning and managed to get in a long run without much thought.
