Run Training

Went for a run in Upper Rancho San Rafael Park.  I struggled with the knee brace and took it off in the second mile.  I picked up a book called Run Workouts for Runners and Triathletes and did a workout from the book probably went a little too hard but i felt good for the first 5 minutes.

Run Training

Short run @ lunch.  I avoided tougher hills to try and get a longer run in than last week.  I tanked my new knee brace and shutdown after 2 miles after some left calf numbness.

Journal Jog 2010

Hit the starting line with Turi & Slowrunner77 for Reno's Journal Jog.  Oddly, it's the first time I've done this race despite living in Reno as long as anyplace else.  Slowrunner77's rehabbing & Turi's got the Tahoe Marathon next week, so they lollygagged with me for a couple of miles.  I broke out my new Cho-pat brace and while I still felt some limiting discomfort, getting to run Turi & Slowrunner77 makes things more better.  I finished in 46:21(strangely, that's a PR) with walk breaks @ 2.85 & 4.15 miles but not bad for a lack of training the past two weeks.

Turi snapped some pic's of me finishing and I stole them from his blog.

Bike Training

Interesting little ride.  I felt like I was gettin' "lathered up" on the second lap and the had to pull over for an ambulance then I flatted and forgot a co2 cartridge so I got to walk to the jeep.

Run Training

Bit of a lackluster run in Upper Rancho San.  Still grooving in a regular running schedule but my knee's been a limiter five of my last six runs.
