Running - Easy (trail) 9:00 [2] 1.17 mi (7:42 / mi)

Warm-up for A-meet at Vasquez Rocks. My legs felt okay, but not great. I'm still sick.

Running - Tempo (orienteering) 1:07:32 [3] 8.0 km (8:27 / km)

Ran A-meet at Vasquez Rocks. I made a few minutes of mistakes (maybe 5), but it was basically a pretty good run. I did a lousy job reading ahead, so I lost several seconds (10-20) at many of the controls.

Cycling (Mt. biking on road) 18:45 [2] 3.6 mi (5:12 / mi)

Biked to Haley's and back to run Mickey.

Running - Easy (road / grass) 25:31 [2] 3.34 mi (7:38 / mi)

Ran with Mickey around the West side of the zoo to the Woodland off-leash area and back via Woodland. My legs felt somewhat tired but not as bad as a few days ago.

Cycling (Mt. biking on road) 13:33 [2] 2.9 mi (4:40 / mi)

Biked back from getting a new drivers license at the Department of Licensing in Greenwood.

Running - Easy (road) 24:00 [2] 3.31 mi (7:15 / mi)

I went for a run in Santa Clarita. I ran from the Travelodge to Albertson's, then turned right and ran until I reached a little strip mall across the street from Denny's. Some of the stores in the strip mall were: "Liquor, 99 Cent Items!", "J&J, The King of TV, Service Center", "Pizza Man", "Annie J's Beauty Salon", "Lingerie Chest", and "The Nail Affair". I stopped there and stretched, then I ran back, turning right on American Beauty street for a 4 minute tour through Valley(?) Oaks neighborhood. The run felt pretty good on the way out, but I realized on the way back that this was probably because it had been downhill with a brisk tailwind.

Cycling (Mt. biking on road) 7:25 [2] 1.66 mi (4:28 / mi)

Rode to school for a cappella.

Cycling (Mt. biking on road) 10:25 [1] 1.66 mi (6:16 / mi)

Rode home from school. It was raining, so I had to go slowly, so that water wouldn't spray up on my butt. I didn't go quite slowly enough at times...

Tuesday Dec 4, 2001 #

Cycling (Mt. biking on road) 20:31 [2] 4.65 mi (4:25 / mi)

Rode to Suzzallo to return aerial photos, then to Albertson's to buy some french bread, then home. My legs are really tired from the last four days of running. It's always tough at the tail end of an illness.

Running - Easy (road / trail) 46:19 [2] 5.45 mi (8:30 / mi)

15:19 warm-up to Woodland and on the track (where I ran into Krissy and talked with her for a few minutes while jogging) before my workout, jogging recovery between hard running, and 15:10 warm-down. I felt slow and tired, and my legs are trashed. It will be a miracle if I bounce back fully for the Relay Champs.

Running - Sprint (grass) 3:17 [5] 1.02 km (3:13 / km)

Ran three times up Soapbox Hill at Woodland Park, starting even with the outfield fence. I did one set before doing a 2-mile tempo on the track, then I did another set of three afterward.
Set 1: 34.2 33.9 33.1
Set 2: 32.2 32.6 31.2

Running - Tempo (track) 11:47 [3] 2.0 mi (5:53 / mi)

Ran two miles at tempo pace on the track. It was about 40F and raining lightly, so I was on the chilly side in shorts and a long-sleeved but porous shirt. The tempo felt tough, and I was just happy to run sub-6 minute pace. My pulse was 168 right after the tempo.

Running - Easy (road / trail) 1:49:20 [2] 14.2 mi (7:42 / mi)

Ran to Fremont to pick up Mickey (Haley's family's boxer), then ran with Mickey to Discovery Park and around the loop trail, via Ballard Bridge. We ran back on Nickerson and the Fremont Bridge. After I dropped him off, I ran most of the way home, but walked up the hill from Woodland, because I was hitting the wall. In fact, I felt really wiped out for much of the run. I didn't think it was possible, but my quads actually felt "light-headed" (tingly and cool) at one point. It sucks to be sick! It didn't help that I scarfed down half a Dutch Baby right before I ran out the door, and it started giving me stomach cramps after sitting and oozing butter for 10 miles. Mickey is even more of a dynamo than I am; his muscles are hard and springy, his strides are longer than mine (amazing, for a dog), and the only dead weight on him is his floppy, slobbery jowls. He needs a play date with Jake, Maddy, and Bernie.

Cycling (Mt. biking on road) 13:58 [2] 2.56 mi (5:27 / mi)

Rode to and from a cappella rehearsal at Mercer Hall.

Rollerblading (easy) 40:30 [2] 7.4 mi (5:28 / mi)

Rollerbladed to East Greenlake, around the lake 1 2/3 times, then up the hill from Woodland. I mostly felt pretty good, considering how long it's been since I've 'bladed (and I'm sick).

Running - Easy (road) 56:55 [2] 7.63 mi (7:28 / mi)

Ran North to Ravenna Blvd, down through Ravenna Park, along the Burke-Gilman Trail to Gasworks Park, through the park, then North up the hill and home via Good Shepherd Center. The lights of downtown were pretty from Gasworks. It was a chilly evening, and I ran with a jacket, which is almost unheard of for me.
