Secret summer rally training, taper edition. Sweet little run doing it this way. I had always seen the braids and monarch as a bit of a trigger, but i really like this circuit.

Longer workout, but I scaled parts of it as part of my long taper (i'm not a really good taperer).

Dumbbell thruster (20 pounders for me)
Lateral dumbbell burpee
Rest 5 mins
4 rounds
25 dumbbell deadlifts (20 #)
12 toes to bar (getting better--still have to work my snap more)
Rest 5 mins
6 rounds of Cindy
5 pull ups
10 push ups
15 squats

run 50:00 [3] 9.37 km (5:20 / km)

Last hard workout before the TT next weekend. With Jordan at the University loop. 5 km repeats with 2:30 easy between.


Interesting test of two different kinds of cheater shoes. First three k were with the Saucony Endorphin Pros; last two were with the good ole Nike cheater Next %s. Gotta say that there was definitely more bounce in the Nikes. K4 felt much like K3 and was 4 seconds faster. K5 was just a burner and so not a good comparison. But the Nike is definitely a faster shoe.

run 42:30 [3] 6.71 km (6:20 / km)
shoes: Saucony Peregrines

Secret Summer Rally training run number 2. The Jordan-specified workout today was three by six minute tempo intervals separated by two minute jogs. And that mapped well onto the Summer Rally course.

Got out the door just as the main thunderstorm of the day hit. In fact this was exactly one thunderstormth worth of a run because we finished just as Otter Dog and I got back to the Hottage.

I managed Going Postal and The Thumb just fine, quietly crediting my superior trail running skills to my satisfying lack of anything close to a fall. As I was settling into how great that was, I rounded the hard right down into—of course—Travesty, planted my right foot to pivot and…it just kept going. Took me about 10 meters to stop sliding down that stupid gully and scramble back to my feet.

The rest of the run went well. 22:50.

Gym 15:00 [3]

Bogus fitness test at the annual physical. Logging it anyway.
