3 PM

Hashing 50:00 [2] 5.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

Annual RH3 GDR - started in Henrietta, bused to the city.
Conservative estimates of distance covered and moving time (it started with a 1.8 mi. road run to the bus pickup - but I ran that easy with Kickstand).

4 PM

Running 16:00 [2] 2.0 mi (8:00 / mi)

Only time to fit in a couple of miles during track practice. The kids did 2 sets of 5 x 300m with 2 circuit exercises (and a total of 100m) between each interval.
7 PM

Hard Core 9:00 [2]

Only counted the light running today because I also did exercises at home:
Fire hydrants - 25 each
Clams - 30 each
Kick backs - 30 each
Scorpions - 30

7 PM

Running 56:11 [2] 6.67 mi (8:26 / mi)

Ran after dropping Luke off (early, we went directly from his basketball game at the U of R - rough game: Luke's "5" were down 1-0 after 4 min, but then played better, going 8 of 15 from the floor overall. Sadly the other 5 were a combined 1 for 16) for his indoor baseball practice on a beautiful evening.

Here is the route (except the running in the woods near Eyer Park is very rough estimate, but distance is correct, assuming 9 min pace)

8:16 pace on the roads early; estimated 8:35 pace in Channing Park (stopped watch when I was on the steep bank and climbing over some logs); 8:23 pace for next stretch to the end of the trail by the RR tracks; assuming 9 min pace for the trails in the woods; 8:11 pace on the roads back.
9 PM


Interestingly - I am having a little trouble walking, due to Achilles soreness from the Elliptical, but no pain at all while running...

I think this happened once before, too.

(rest day)

Unplanned rest day. Did not really have a chance to run during track practice, then I had to leave there at 5:30 to get to a 10-week (x 3.5 hours) class that I am starting to prepare for the PMP exam.

6 PM

Swimming 26:27 [3] 0.74 mi (35:44 / mi)


Bayview after work. Had to wait 15 minutes to get a lane (which shortened my workout, given we got kicked out at 6:30). I had expected everyone to be outside enjoying the weather, not swimming. My achilles were a bit tight after yesterday's eliptical, so running outside was not a good option for me.

4 PM

Running 6:00 [2] 0.75 mi (8:00 / mi)

Opening day of track practice. This year I get to coach the girls distance team, as well as the boys. Nice turnout - more than half of the boys and over a third of the girls are distance runners. I thought I would get some running in, but it couldn't really happen.

The kids did 2x800T on the track, 800m or 1600m T by "feel" around the fields, then 1-2 more 800T on the track.
7 PM

Running 29:59 [2] 3.5 mi (8:34 / mi)

Decided to watch the Sabres game at the Penfield Y, which has individual TVs on many treadmills and ellipticals. Wasn't sure how long I'd make it, so I started easy to maximize possibilities.

This was during the first period; 1-0 Canadiens.

Avg HR based on a relatively small sample size, but my assumption is that it didn't change much at this pace.

Biking 14:00 [3] 3.6 mi (3:53 / mi)

Jumped on the bike between periods. Manual - started at level 8, but moved to 9, then 10 as my legs became able to spin. Did not get the HR above 120, despite this being much harder than the treadmill.

Elliptical 32:00 [3] 3.5 mi (9:09 / mi)
ahr:144 max:151

Moved to the elliptical (the kind where you use your arms, too) for the second period. The "big man" tied it at 1.

Kept enough effort up to keep the HR above 140 as much as possible. This also seemed easier than the biking.
9 PM


Decided I could not handle another hour of watching at the Y, so I drove to Applebee's to catch the 3rd. The "big man" scored again, but the Canadiens tied it with 4.6 seconds left. But Tyler Myers got the winner early in overtime, so all was well.

(rest day)

Hard to believe, but with the beautiful weather today, I did not manage to get out for a run. I did catch Luke's hockey game (5-2 win +3 plus on for a PP goal) and basketball game (lost, but he had 11 points to lead his team again).
