Training, March 11 - 17

Monday: Off - still recovering from stomach virus.

Tuesday: PM - 10 miles easy.

Wednesday: PM - 8 miles easy.
Ran part of the run with Dan Kittaka after picking up some new racing flats (NB 1600s) for short road races.

Thursday: AM - 15 miles moderate.
Ran about 6:20 pace for most of the run; pretty tired by the end, definitely still a bit run down from illness.
PM - 5 miles easy.

Friday: AM - 7 miles easy.
Legs pretty shot, might have overdone it a bit yesterday, still coming off of illness.  

Saturday: Paleozoic 50k - "2nd place", 3:50:18 - 32 miles total.
In addition to being tenth place, I was also second place; explanation and race report forthcoming.

Sunday: AM - 6 miles easy.
Not too beat up all things considered.  I was pretty sore after yesterday's race in mud and ice, but felt decent for the easy regeneration run today.

Summary: 83 miles
Not too much going on this week.  I had the flu or some similar stomach virus last weekend, so I was taking it relatively easy coming back.  When you get super-dehydrated like I was, it can take a bit to get back to normal.  The doctor had recommended that I take it pretty easy for a week.  In light of that, I might have pushed a bit too much by doubling on Thursday with a longer quality run.  And obviously a trail 50k on Saturday as well.  But I really needed the training stimulus (American River 50 Miler is just three weeks away!), so I went ahead and raced anyway.  No functional strength work this week, mostly because I was taking it slow coming back, and then was just shot later in the week.  I'll get back to form next week.


  1. They have had them on since, and haven't once tried to remove them. Purchasing enough for your home could replace your old and broken down furnace quickly and for far less. One minute you're enjoying the hazy copper aura of Fall and then wham, it's November.

  2. Purchase from local manufacturers if possible; if not, purchase
    direct from the manufacturer to ensure the most freshness - all-natural beauty products don't contain chemical preservatives, so their shelf-life may be shorter than their conventional chemical-filled counterparts. Why bother going to the department store when everything you need is right in your kitchen. Indulging in a warm bubble bath, listening to music and playing your favourite sport are also good ways of beating stress.

  3. To make scrambled eggs with a waffle maker simply crack eggs into a bowl, add milk and wisk.
    This is a recipe for a Belgian waffle that is truly a sweet, sumptuous and nutty concoction.
    Modern makers of the waffle iron give us the challenge of
    choices on a large scale.

  4. Cheaper adjustable dumbbells can be purchased at discount retailers and don't always go up to 50 lbs. Manual resistance is a great supplement but requires a competent trainer or partner well acquainted in the practice. There are also light models made for people that can't lift as much weight.

  5. The reflected heat can be felts several yards in front of the heater itself.

    Description: This recall involves Creative Heating Solutions brand portable space heaters with model number CH-750,

  7. Throughout that movie, they're traveling from place to place, but is that really safe. In fact the term zombie came from the region and refers to persons who have undergone such a mind altering experience. Along the various groups of survivors the doctor manages to outlive, he finds that the infection may have been started by a food processing plant and an additive that is found in nearly every food and beverage.

  8. This breast enhancement exercise should be repeated a few times
    a day:. Decades ago when some American coaches saw what their superior Baltic counterparts were training their athletes with for certain strength competitions, they began slowly to incorporate kettlebells into their
    programs. In a half squatting position your torso is as vertical as possible.
