I'm retired from racing. Really. Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/ Tue, 30 May 2017 01:28:29 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Fri, May 26, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-26-2017.html <p>AM- another chilly morning. Felt much better than yesterday. 6 miles in just over 44 minutes.</p> <p>Lunch- Ultimate, 7v7. My team won 5-2 (we were probably a bit stacked). Then, a 4v4 game with points that took forever. We called it at 2-1 for my team.</p> Fri, 26 May 2017 06:00:00 Thu, May 25, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-25-2017.html <p>AM 4 run, the stopped due to my shin bugging me again. Biked for a while. Exciting.</p> Thu, 25 May 2017 06:00:00 Wed, May 24, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-24-2017.html <p>AM- 10</p> <p>Lunch- it didn&#39;t rain, so we played frisbee. Man, am I sore now, especially my lower back and ankles. My team lost 5-3.</p> Wed, 24 May 2017 06:00:00 Tue, May 23, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-23-2017.html <p>AM- 8. Rainy all day, so indoors. Aaron and I both decided a Paris Mtn run wouldn&#39;t be smart as we&#39;ve had 3-4 inches of rain the past few days and it was thundering that afternoon.</p> Tue, 23 May 2017 06:00:00 Mon, May 22, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-22-2017.html <p>lunch- run 3 miles then frisbee. I&#39;d say my team was the better one today, and we were having lots of early success, but then went down 4-1 during the official game. We scored 2 points, then someone left on the other team so I switched sides. My new team scored so won 5-3.</p> Mon, 22 May 2017 06:00:00 Fri, May 19, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-19-2017.html <p>Lunch- rough, rough frisbee game. 3 miles running first, then time for ultimate. We didn&#39;t do a good job splitting the teams and my team was definitely outmatched. We got whupped almost the whole time. We weren&#39;t playing well (bad throws, missed catches) and the other team had better players. We started the game to 5 and the other team immediately scored 2 easy points. I got very frustrated and was working my tail off chasing the disc, counting the thrower, etc. My team started playing a bit better but the score was still 4-2 them. However, with some kind of insane toughness, effort, and luck, we somehow won 5-4. It was tough, tough. After the game, almost my whole team was laying on the ground exhausted, and, for the first time ever, had a team rally after. Game to remember.</p> Fri, 19 May 2017 06:00:00 Thu, May 18, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-18-2017.html <p>AM- I intended to run an hour, but my shin (shin splints?) were not feeling good, nor my ankle, so I stopped after a mile and biked instead. Uneventful. Blah.</p> Thu, 18 May 2017 06:00:00 Wed, May 17, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-17-2017.html <p>Lunch- new shoes. 2.5 miles run, then frisbee on a hot day. Lots of drops and low energy due to heat. My team won 5-3.</p> Wed, 17 May 2017 06:00:00 Tue, May 16, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-16-2017.html <p>PM- PM with just Aaron. Hottest day of the year, above 90 deg, but not very humid so didn&#39;t feel too bad. Didn&#39;t even drink all of my water. Did the shortened course, 7.5 miles or so. Felt pretty good, better than last week.</p> Tue, 16 May 2017 06:00:00 Mon, May 15, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-15-2017.html <p>Lunch- 2 mile run, then ultimate. Good game today, 7v7, my team won 5-4.</p> Mon, 15 May 2017 06:00:00 Fri, May 12, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-12-2017.html <p>Lunch- frisbee. 70 and cloudy but humid. Too many people, 20, means we end up with 7v7 with 3 subs. I find it hard to establish a rhythm when subbing out every third point, plus the field seems very congested. Nonetheless, my team won 5-2.</p> Fri, 12 May 2017 06:00:00 Thu, May 11, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-11-2017.html <p>Left heel really hurts again, all the time, so decided against running. Hour bike.</p> Thu, 11 May 2017 06:00:00 Wed, May 10, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-10-2017.html <p>Lunch- frisbee day. 6v6. I played the best I&#39;ve played in a long time, especially making some ridiculously hard catches. Fun to play well sometimes. We won 5-2.</p> Wed, 10 May 2017 06:00:00 Tue, May 09, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-09-2017.html <p>PM with just Aaron. 85 deg but not humid. I did about 9.5 miles. Pretty slow with pain in achilles and shin. Aaron has a nasty gag reflex while running and a chest cold, so actually ended up gagging so much he threw up a number of times. Yummy.</p> Tue, 09 May 2017 06:00:00 Mon, May 08, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-08-2017.html <p>AM- 8. Pretty slow, didn&#39;t feel at all energetic</p> <p>Lunch- frisbee. Warm. minimal wind. Even teams but my team got our butts kicked 5-2.</p> Mon, 08 May 2017 06:00:00 Fri, May 05, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-05-2017.html <p>AM- 6 at 7:40-7:20 pace</p> <p>Lunch- frisbee. Rather windy, made it interesting. My team had 6 and the other had 7 most of the time, which ended up even, but they one of ours left so we did 6-6. Not even anymore, we won 5-0.</p> Fri, 05 May 2017 06:00:00 Thu, May 04, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-04-2017.html <p>AM- 10 miles. Started 8, but the bulk of the run was 7:45-7:30 pace. I think I even threw a 7:20 in there. Smokin&#39;. 60 deg and a bit breezy. Perfect weather. And I ran the GE trail without seeing any turkeys.</p> Thu, 04 May 2017 06:00:00 Wed, May 03, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-03-2017.html <p>Lunch- frisbee 7 people, so we stuck the 3 fastest on one team, including me. Fun time, lots of running. Great weather, no wind. We ended up winning 5-4. 5v5 is better, though, or 6v6.</p> Wed, 03 May 2017 06:00:00 Tue, May 02, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-02-2017.html <p>PM- PM with Seth, Barry, and Aaron. We even ran into Carl, who we used to run with years ago, out walking with his toddler son. I felt lightheaded and terrible the first 30 min, then ok, then great on miles 6-8, then ok again. Tired by the end. Perfect running weather- mid-70&#39;s, sunny, a little breeze. Glorious.</p> Tue, 02 May 2017 06:00:00 Mon, May 01, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-01-2017.html <p>AM- thunderstorms predicted for noon so I assumed no frisbee. I ran in the morning. Planned on 8 and wasn&#39;t going real fast (7:45-8:00) but felt fine so did 10</p> <p>Lunch- rains held off so we played frisbee. 13 people, evenly matched game made more adventuresome by the blusstery winds. Fun times. My team went down 2-3 but then scored 3 straight to win.</p> Mon, 01 May 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 29, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-29-2017.html <p>Played Ultimate and Gaga ball for several hours at church picnic. Was super sweaty the rest of the time due to the heat. Counts for some running.</p> Sat, 29 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Apr 28, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-28-2017.html <p>Lunch- frisbee. Pretty warm, humid day, but minimal wind. They had me switch to the other team halfway through cause we were killing them. My new team ended up winning 5-3. I played pretty well- a couple bad throws, but generally on target for Def, catching, scoring, and throwing. Afterwards, a few of us were mutually complaining &nbsp;on having to cover some of the other players who we categorize in the &quot;runners&quot; class, all of us fit, sprinting all over the field. We pretty much all agreed that we all hate covering each other cause we have to run so much. Fun, even game today.</p> Fri, 28 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Apr 27, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-27-2017.html <p>AM- 9 very slow. 8:30-8:15 pace or so.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 27 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Apr 26, 2017 http://Jon.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-26-2017.html <p>Lunch frisbee. Even teams, but we lost 5-1. A couple wide open drops in the endzone didn&#39;t help. Always fun. Hot, humid, no wind.</p> Wed, 26 Apr 2017 06:00:00
