ahr:117 max:175 shoes: Hoka Clifton 6

LLELA (TX) Nature Preserve. Damon suggested a trail run where he's run a lot. Trail running is hard for Dee and she didn't enjoy this as much. It was a mix of walking and running. Ran with a topo map of the area.

orienteering (trail run) 14:26 [3] * 1.27 mi (11:22 / mi) +10m 11:06 / mi

After, Damon ran the same set of loops again, and I opted to run just the Black Jack Loop pushing the pace. Dee rested and then went out on own a few hundred meters on Black Jack. Ran with topo map of trail. Good exercise to follow the trail and NOT pace count.

9 AM

strength/stretching warm up/down 8:00 [1]

running warm up/down 10:00 [1] 0.5 mi (20:00 / mi)

east jog before and after run on XC course.

running (cross country) 1:09:12 [3] 6.26 mi (11:03 / mi) +55m 10:46 / mi
ahr:154 max:179 shoes: Salomon XT Wings 3

Did my own time trial 10K on the Billy Mills Trail course at Haskell. Gusty winds from the south, sunny, ~60F. Did push the pace at the end. At 3 mi, I had 34 min and at first figured a 68 min finish or 1:08, but quickly remember is 6.2 mi (10K) and guessed I should finish in 1:10. Also figured I had more uphills in the last 3 miles and more in the open into the wind, so the need to push. 1:09:12 was good. The depressing not at 3 mi at 34 min was Billy Mills had already finished his 10K under 29 min. But then I wondered what Billy could run today as a 75+ runner. Overall, it was a nice run.

Had cramps again in both feet after the run and had to wait for cramps to go away before I could drive the car. Is it because I wear the old Salomon shoes?

Wednesday Nov 18 #

just a short walk on Westchester, 25 pushups and some stretching (rowing with band)

ahr:166 max:188 shoes: New Balance 880

From home to S Shaw & Burcham parks looking into the woods and thinking maybe I can set an Usynlig O course. Did not carry a map just looking around. Lots of homeless sites with tents in some parts. Seems to be a lot more nice camping tents like these homeless had more money than others in the past.
Galloway intervals 60:30 most of the time. Sunny, ~ 34F.
23m of climb (flat).
Dropped my cellphone and small wallet out of my fanny pack (I had left it unzipped). Would be a real problem if I lost my cellphone. Need to be more careful.

for most exercises: 15 reps.
5x25 pushups
2x15 heel extensions (L,R)

Terrible headache while doing jumping jacks, so didn't do a second set.
