5 mi. Even in recovery mode it was refreshing to have the second cool track workout in a row. Many of my intervals had me as the very last runner in the group, which was expected. Sometimes, my recovery jog was the same speed as the interval! 1 mile warmup on Alton Rd 300m w/100m … Continue reading A good cool morning for a change!
5 mi. We had 30 runners up early on a Thursday morning for the track session. Paul said he was having a stress test and therefore he wasn't running. All those people spent the first 15 minutes on Alton's well-lit road warming up. I met two new runners, CrossFit people who heard about the workout … Continue reading 30 runners

5mi. The drive to track took me a longer time than usual. Military Trail is being repaved between PGA Blvd and Donald Ross Rd. So when I'm driving up, there are partially blocked lanes, guys picking up street cones and I seem to hit every nonsense red light even if there's no one there to … Continue reading 1 mph
