54 years of standing up and 15 years of pounding the trails – the muscles are getting a bit stiff. The left hip is the main challenge.
Usually yoga, stretches and hot tub gives a lot of relief – but did I mention that I have lost some of the discipline in that? Need to get back on the horse again… of course, the left hip permitting 🙂
My run was far more straight and narrow than my friend’s!!
The last one was three months back. The rising temperatures have worked well so far for my miles this year. This was was done in 58 minutes 20 seconds – or about a pace of 9:25 per mile.
Went for a run in the morning at my usual trail. Since it was morning, there was not too many people out there. I was putting in my run at my pace, when I thought I saw somebody I knew!
Met Greg after a long time. In fact, the last time I met him might have been in a different trail when he and his wife was finishing up a run and I was starting my own. Greg and I used work together a couple of jobs back and is one of the coolest dude around.
Met his dog – I think Bodie is his name. You can see that “you are getting me late” look on his face. Apparently he goes for 15 mile runs at whatever pace you want him to!
“Greg, you were off the trails with that injury, right?”
“Yes, I am starting to recover now.”
“How many miles are you putting these days?”
“About 50 miles – “
“Sounds about right as you recover”, I said assuming he was giving me his monthly number.
“ – a week”!
The man and his dog are crazy. We agreed to go out on our motorcycles one of these days.
Touch wood, but I think I have gone past the initial pain and hurt of building up the miles. The goal is to see if I can take advantage of the virus and post a couple of 100 mile months.
That was the fourth 5 mile run in a week. Tried out some hills first and then did a flat trail run.
It was around 80 degrees and breezy. Somehow the sun got to me after about three miles. Started feeling very hungry and tired. Pulled out after another couple of miles. I think I am getting old!
5 mile run in 80 degrees in Fowler Park. The trail was crowded even at 1pm.
