  1. RUN
    great Ernie Maxwell Trail w/Garry 5.09 mi 01:03 12:17 pace

    Five miles before dinner with visiting trail runner Garry on the Ernie Maxwell Trail. A dinner we earned with sweat. :)

    good wicked trails 5.18 mi 01:04 12:22 pace

    so, the guys that make these stupendous-yet-unauthorized trails on the hills west of town just got busted (and steeply fined). Inevitable, I suppose, given the burrowing obsession they have; over 5... read more

      Sounds like fun! Hopefully they don't take the trails away.

      That is a realistic concern, Mike. In the name of "forest preservation," they have been known to come in with backhoes… Ironic, to say the least.

    good Runch on the mountain 4.91 mi 01:01 12:31 pace

    A nice, and much needed, midday run on the Ernie Maxwell Trail behind my cabin. A morning of various computer issues sapped my productivity and dampened my mood, but this little exertion on the mou... read more

    Great to be back on the mountain where I belong. I did about 5k here to recover from Saturday's 50k. Sore? Sure, but all is good. Even better: I'm back to running in sandals, which were ... read more

      me too, Rosalinda! :) Thanks, Miguel and Mike. Lyle -- only got word of that little snag about 5 days before the race, so most of my training was in sandals, not shoes. But the shoes worked out fine. And then turns out that some snuck in the minimal stuff and got away with it! -- i saw a guy who did the whole thing in Vibram FiveFingers -- wow!

    great Bulldog 50k race 28.78 mi 06:27 13:26 pace

    Bulldog 50k race -- Quite possibly the hardest thing I've ever done, except maybe for making my way through the birth canal. That was tough too.

    But I'm happy with my results. My 1st... read more

  6. RUN
    good post-race beach stroll 0.45 mi 00:09:23 20:51 pace

    Since the 50k ended so near to Malibu, my racing buddy and I headed for the ocean to cool down our legs and stretch them out a bit before the 4 hour drive home.

  7. Second-ever 50k this Sat. I'm looking forward to it. Weird tho... I feel like I ought to be a bit unhinged (a somewhat beastly course with beastly weather forecast), but it's cool to feel... read more

  8. RUN
    good Hill repeats 0.7 mi 00:15 21:55 pace

    Not a long run but, geez, with sections of the wooded hill behind my cabin as steep as 44% grade, this qualifies it as a significant workout. :) Up and down it 3 times. Just trying to be ready fo... read more

      Be careful not to over train. You should be tapering.
      Remember, its always better to be under trained than over injured. :)~

    good Tahquitz Loop hike 14.55 mi 04:33 18:45 pace

    Tahquitz Loop hike with 10 others from a hiking meetup group. Apparently none of them had even heard of hiking/running in sandals, so I ended up explaining several times to whoever was in front or ... read more

    great Ernie & Devil trails training... 8.22 mi 01:52 13:35 pace

    More race prep; theory is that speed-hiking the steep uphills can be more efficient than trying to run them, so I'm practicing speed-hiking up & using my heart rate monitor to manage BPMs.... read more

  11. RUN
    good Speed drills & hills 2.52 mi 00:30 11:54 pace

    race prep: practice uphill speed hiking, downhill speed stuff, and a couple speed drills to boot.

    Noontime desert sun run, intentionally with minimal hydration for race day prep.

    Late afternoon, feeling brain dead, so I closed the laptop & hit the trail to do a little dirt dancing in the clouds - up to the Tahquitz Peak fire tower and down the long way for 11 miles tota... read more

      Not good to be surprised by a bike in the dark. Great distance.

      fortunately, Mike, I had a headlamp too, so he saw me and slowed down for a safe passing.

    My goal was 2k' of elevation gain from home. I got it. And I got to test out my new shoes! Twisted my ankle 2x in them, but I think that that's got more to do with me not being accustomed... read more

      really nice people too, Mike. If this is what group hikes are like normally, i think i'll do more of these. Nice to meet so many like-minded individuals in one setting.
