5mi. Today was the first morning of the new "summer hours" at Benjamin Track. Security will open the school gates at 6:30 am. I imagine this will inconvenience a few that have a work schedule beginning in the early mornings. Some runners cane at the regular time and did a workout on Grandiflora Ave. They … Continue reading A delayed start

5 mi. I'm running our second "Rogue Run" tonight, but this is more important. Today was breeze-less and I had a big red meat dinner last night. I felt good, wearing the well-worn Skechers Go Run Ride 4 shoes, primarily because they are easy to slip on/slip off. 1 mi warmup jog 300m w/100m recovery (1:09) 300m … Continue reading A fair chance

It was still and humid, maybe we've already experienced the last cool track-type workout of the year? Paul had the sign and we went rapidly … Continue reading Last cool one?
