30mi. The idea was to go only 30 miles but to spin one gear lower than where I belonged. I left at the same time as the group but allowed the mass to get further ahead of me. I stayed behind with no pull, we were riding with the wind up the Island. I stayed … Continue reading Short recovery 30

30 mi. Charlotte had planned to run the SF marathon since the MBA acceptance went through. Thinking she'd already be living on the west coast, her trip to and from Florida wasn't something anyone thought would happen. As had happened when I ran in Boston, Charlotte woke up very early, under everyone else's radar, and … Continue reading The Juno-Francisco Marathon
5mi. We don't get a mile for time assigned often, those are every 5-6 weeks apart. We even less get to do two timed miles in the same workout - that was today. We started with innocent 200m intervals, then a mile at what Paul billed as 80%. I ran with Tom Matese for a … Continue reading The double mile day.
30 mi. Chiara set the idea in my head - "Let's ride after work..." Thinking I'd have a good chance at doing that, I agreed. As the day progressed, she found she couldn't do the ride at 5:30, then at 6:30, then at all. I was at this time, ready to go. I drove home, … Continue reading I’ll do it myself anyway
2000 yards. Seems like my last few swims have been mostly repetitive 75m intervals. I do them, it seems to take awhile to get to the pool, do the workout, and drive back to work in time. Long arms, good breathing. Warmup Set (300y) 3 x 100 easy-mod @ 2:20 Main Set (1400y) 18 … Continue reading More 75s?
8 mi. No relief from the breeze today, only a small amount of wind from the west helped make the climb west bearable. I ran with Walter who flies to Sydney after going home to shower, he will miss a few workouts next month due to Aussie and NZ trips. Paul stopped shortly after our … Continue reading Very hot hills
7.5 mi Took my time getting started, I ran only one lap around the parking lot with Walter before Chiara and Charlotte arrived ready to run. This was maybe the first time in a very long time that the four of us came to run the bridge together. It may be the last with Charlotte's … Continue reading Final Four
100mi. Showing up to start at 3:30am makes for a tired ride in the dark. Anita brought Austin who was the most excited of the three of us to do the century ride. Charlotte's last big ride would be on her Specialized Transition. Big difference, as she was strong in the late miles as we … Continue reading One hundred hot ones.
16mi. Surely before a century ride I should relax and be sociable, run light and be strong for tomorrow, right? Steve Bernstein, Walter and I ran 16 starting at 5am, easy running to PGA and back. (self supplied water with no jug at FP&L anymore) At the store we barely made it to the water … Continue reading Tape these together and they look very nice…
5 mi. Perry called out the intervals today, a really hot and still humid morning. No relief from a breeze or a temp under 83 at 5:30am. We ran the following workout. 1 mi warmup jog 1000m w/200m recovery 400m w/200m recovery 200m w/200m recovery 800m w/200m recovery 800m w/200m recovery 600m w/200m recovery 400m … Continue reading No Paul, no mile…
