Run Training

Went to Rancho San for an easy 3 mile run. I wanted to add runs in Rancho San to my normal training to match my build for IM FL and also during the two Moonlight Madness Runs I cracked on the same hill and ran poorly.

Run Training

Weird! Just plain weird. I got a non-windy day out in Verdi so I started my run with the hills to my advantage and got a little carried away. I felt faster than normal and my knee felt OK so I got going faster than a normal jog and made it about 1&2/3 mile before cracking and shut it down to finish out three. My first tempo run under 9minutes in years so maybe I gettin' there.

Bike Training

Felt a little punk today so I Jaked the Donner Lake Swim; I didn't want get off-shore and not feel strong, so I moped around all morning before heading out for a ride. I decided to scout my commute routes to and from NW.

I usually go up and over Las Brisas to Melton Elementary School , home of the Melton Mountain Lions and parents in over their heads. I'll get better data on the climb because I'll end up using it as a performance measure. I took a short breather and headed home.

The widening of McCarron and 7th change my normal way home but I like this new way as it makes for a long climb home.

**I locked the maps in my Garmin Connect Dashboard because I might not want to put a map to my house on the internet. I guess I gotta think about it on a ride the next couple of days and maybe change the start different from my house.**

Bike Training

Hopped on my Cyclo-cross rig for a post-work spin. First ride since Ironman CDA and the wind got up in my grill early and often. I went from the library to the front of the Somerset housing division. It ended up a couple miles shorter than I thought.

Went for an Easy Run during lunch. I shut it down at 4 miles because my knee started acting up but still had a good day.

Wild West 1/2 Marathon & 10k

Hopped in the car w/ SnowLep, Big T & Abby3 and headed up above Truckee for the Wild West 1/2 Marathon & 10k put on by High Sky productions. SnowLep and I ran the 10k which went a tad long @ 6.6mi & Big T and Abby3 took on the 1/2 Marathon. The course climbed 594ft over 3.3 miles and then we got to downhill it back to the start. I felt slow as I just started back running and need to walk some of the hills. SnowLep dropped me after the first mile but I caught her around mile 4 and then she got down the hill a minute & 1/2 before me in 1:10:08 and I came in @ 1:11:35. Big T & Abby3 clocked in @ 2:08:22/23 to finish a difficult day on the trails. The race tees were pretty cool so I snagged a medium to send back to the SSI. Then we cruised over to 5050 Brewing for some well earned pizza and beer!
