Saturday Apr 6 #

9 AM

walk trot (nice morning overcast) 54:09 [3] 3.5 mi (15:28 / mi)
shoes: Nike Pegasus 34

Friday Apr 5 #

10 AM

running tempo (OC Track) 12:08 [3] 1.25 mi (9:42 / mi)
shoes: Hoka Clifton 2

Warmup to start once again to put some sort of quickness and smoothness into my stride (all things considered). When warming up at track I did a few short 10 to 20 yard speed bursts and I always feel awkward so I paid attention to the light bulb flashing over my head. I slowed down until I felt smoother and more in control.

I approached the 5 lap 100mt trot then stride with same philosophy. I accelerated into strides more slowly and smoothly and tried not to strain (too much). Basically ran same pace without the purple face and bulging veins in my neck.

I felt smoother and thus more rewarded and confident I was going to gain the most from this rather limited 'speed' workout.

4:53 (2:27)
7:18 (2:25)
9:42 (2:24)
12:08.2 (2:26)
11 AM

running (OC Trail 2.5 mile loops) 50:10 [3] 5.0 mi (10:02 / mi)
shoes: Hoka Clifton 2

In the past I would have pushed to break 50 but I felt I was doing the most I needed to do today...pace and effort wise. It was a good hard workout but I had a little left.

Ran backwards and did not start at the marked starting place so only 2 times:

26:29 (10:36 pace)
23:41 (9:28 pace)

Thursday Apr 4 #

10 AM

walk trot (sunny beautiful humid) 59:29 [3] 5.1 mi (11:40 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Ravenna 8

I see a Hoka Cantu on sale (black and red with white trim) on sale $67 from a place on line called Kelly's Runningwarehouse. And same color for Hoka Mach $80...

Ran same pace today...different course tho. I overdressed by a lot...we had unexpected rain...a lot...last night and this was overcast and cool while I warmed up inside...just before I went out sun came out...due to all the skin issues when I'm in doubt I'll use the 'cover up' from the sun for a tie-breaker...but the humidity was high and I was close to be toasty by the time I finished.

Wednesday Apr 3 #

walk trot (good rest day breezy) 58:22 [3] 5.0 mi (11:40 / mi)
shoes: Hoka Infinite

These Hoka's felt good today...

Tuesday Apr 2 #

10 AM

running (sunny nice breezy) 50:19 [3] 5.0 mi (10:04 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Ghost 9

I could have broken 50 min/10min pace if the breeze had just been slightly less...not a howling wind but I still lack a little running power. Right hip slightly sore before and it was the left hip slightly sore when I finished...

1M 11:15
2M 21:42 (10:27)
3M 31:38 (9:56)
4M 41:17 (9:39)
5M 50:19 (9:02)

I held back just slightly...too early and too weak to go the 110 % push.

Monday Apr 1 #

Sunday Mar 31 #

5 AM

walk trot (KIDNEY STONE UGH) 1:10:55 [3] 6.0 mi (11:49 / mi)
shoes: Adidas Duramo 9

Yesterday evening it began to feel like I strained my lower right back...but then it got worse and I realized it was probably a kidney stone. Hard to's like someone kicked you. I had one worse kidney or what I felt like was my kidney felt like the size of a watermelon. I could barely walk...drove around looking for emergency place...I never go to those so of course I went to walk in clinic that was closed...then it just disappeared.

I tried lemon water...some new magic potion called stone breaker I got about a week ago...olive oil, apple cider vinegar, etc...googled and all those were mentioned...and a tylenol. I had not taken any aspirin, aleve, ibuprofen or tylenol in about 3 days after yet another life lesson that all things are bad for you, including air, sun, water, food, etc. I gave in and took some let up by about 50%.

Went out about 5:45 not knowing what to expect including perhaps having to shut down after a mile or two and just slow walking. I was going so slow that after half mile I just kept the trotting up as it was so slow. But I began to do some short 5 to 15 yard surges...if you can call them that about a mile or mile and quarter...and actually got going and pain went away. But once I stopped my kidney are is still sore and painful although much better.

1M 15:20
2M 28:00 (13:40)
3M 40:10 (12:10)
4M 50:50 (10:40)
5M 1:01 (10:10)
6m 1:10:55 (9:55)

So first mile super slow even for Sun am in dark and cold but last 4 especially very good all things considered.
