Personal:

I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

Finally figured I should get off my duff and do something today. Actually, I did two things.

Jack

Squat

 

Any questions? I'm enjoying retirement from running so far.

Lunch- 30 days after Western States 100, I did my first run. Upper 80's and humid, plus a fast pace, made for hard running for me. Did the first 4 miles with a group of 11, then 4 of us cut out early, slowed down, and ran 2 miles back. My legs were dead (as expected) and calves were almost cramping. The problem with running ultras, though, is you learn to run for hours on dead legs. It makes me feel like I should keep going on days like today (just cause I figure I could) when it's best to stop  early. I have to set myself hard limits when I'm just coming back. That limit is 30-50 min this week. Finished with 48 min 6 miles.

No run, donated blood instead. That should make tomorrow's run that much better.

Lunch- I don't suggest trying to run with a moderately fast group when you are out of shape, it's hot and humid, and you donated blood the day before. If you are crazy enough to try this, you will get absolutely dropped within 2 miles and limp home at 9+ min pace. Ouch. 4 miles. Still sore from Monday, and tired. I guess this is to be expected for getting back in shape.

Spent the morning with my son at the dentist getting some cavities fixed. He screamed for an hour straight. Kids don't like the dentist.

AM- 5 in 44 min. Yeah, that slow. The good news is, I didn't even think I would make my planned 4 miles after the first 10 min, but ended up feeling good enough by mile 4 to add on one more.
