Run Training

Wrapped up the month with a 6 mile jog on the treadmill:  10:06/9:42/9:32/9:30/9:23/9:37.  I ended up with 61 miles for the month including a string of 5 straight days for the first time in 18-20 years and dropped 8 pounds.

Clean, Old Fashioned Hate -- that says it all.  georgia tech comes to Athens this week for a pretty big game.  Erk Russell once commented his training program was running 3 miles and hating tech 4.  I'm gonna run 3 miles every day this week for the game.  It'll be my biggest week of running since June and my first back-to-back run days in years and will include my most treadmill running ever.  Erk said it best though, "GATA!"

Today I got a 5k in on the treadmill

34th Annual Donner Lake Turkey Trot

Carpooled over to Donner w/ Turi & SnowLep for the Turkey Trot. 

I got dropped on the first two miles of hills and faded during Mile 5 to finish in 1:09:30.  Very happy to go under Seventy minutes (probably for the first time ever, lookout 65!), I beat last year's time by aboot 3 minutes and it took me 1:17:22 the first time I ever ran around the lake so I'm getting better.  Also today I went over 100 miles of running since August.

Bike Training

Hit the Gym after work for some stationary bike work.  A few years ago, I bought some Spinervals DVD's and went to their site and found some free workouts and I went with "Easy Does It."

Run Training

Met Slowrunner77 for a morning run in Upper Ranch San Rafael.  After an easy jog, he started taking me uphill and throwing out a beating.  I got to live up to my High Altitude claim as we went a mile high on the top climb.  Slowrunner77 took it to me and I look forward to this run with him again in a few months.

Lunch-time Jog in Verdi.  Ate some wind and felt some fatigue from Sunday.

Run Training

Rolled over to Thomas Creek with Turi, SnowLep, Slowrunner77 & some friends from Carson City for a run on the Fall Colors Trail Run course.  Not really my cup of tea as the first 3.5 miles went uphill but I got going downhill to finish.

Then I got bored waiting for the group that went long, so I tacked on some cooldown loops to get to 15k for the day.
