  1. RUN
    tired Rose In The Fisted Glove 5 km 00:24 07:43 pace

    Second race of the day and there was some fatigue in the body after blasting out a 22 minute race two hours earlier. Focused on keeping my form with each step and dug deep for a faster sprint over ... read more

    Warm up run between races to keep the legs limber and lungs pumping. Minus zero temperature despite the blinding sunshine.

      Ooooo...blinding sunshine! I'm looking at grey/overcast, but that's the normal noises for Seattle in November. :-) Nice warm up!

      LOL! I love that feeling! The one thing experience has taught me is to just race my race, and keep my own pace. Even as an old broad, I often end up passing people who just went out too fast. :-) As ever, an outstanding Zoom!!! run for you! How is the tendon feeling now?

      Sam R. You're right, we should always run our own race. The tendon is holding nicely as I'm giving it extra warm up and stretching sessions. Thanks for asking! :-)

    great Moonshadow 11 km 00:58 08:29 pace

    Morning run with a new running buddy who sets a tough pace. I kept up but only just.

  9. RUN
    good Weeds Grew High 7 km 00:48 11:02 pace

    Milder temperatures encouraged me to brave the evening air and hit the bricks. Took an extremely easy pace to not overwork my calf, and warmed up nicely as a result.

  10. RUN
    good Fat On A Rolling Stone 5 km 00:24 07:43 pace

    Second race of the day at 11am, Birchfield Park. Tried for a speedy 5th kilometer but my newly healed calf muscle began to protest so eased off the gas a little.

      That's still a smoking pace. Nice race!!! And I guess this answers the question about whether Parkruns got through November? :-) Great work out there! The leggy ones always get past me, too.

      Well, I can't imagine anyone not seizing the opportunity to chat you up a bit. Glad you had a nice cool down, all the same. :-) Seattle can be a lot the same way. They even have a name for it - the Seattle Freeze, which is sometimes disconcerting to this California girl, but on we go, eh? :-)

      Yes, Sam R. I lived in BC not far from Seattle and we shared the same weather. I can deal with the rain, as long as it remains mild. I look forward to being back in that part of the world.

      Wahoooo! Look at you go! You must have been feeling easy to be able to turn up the heat like that. Congratulations on a wonderful run! Do Parkruns go through the winter, or will October be the end? I'm enjoying watching you run them faster and faster!

      Hey Sam R. I would have answered you ages ago but I've been off for two weeks with a strained calf muscle and haven't checked in. I'm guessing the parkruns continue during the cold months. However, some of the grassy courses alter their routes to keep folks on the asphalt and gravel paths.

      I'm sorry to hear about the calf muscle!! I hope you're healing well. I've been looking around for something like Parkruns here, but so far, no luck. It would be great motivation to get out in the winter! :-) Take good care of yourself!
