  1. RUN
    great Slaughter Creek Trail 5.2 mi 00:47 08:59 pace

    First time on the trail since the stress fracture. There's nothing like runnin' your favorite trail again for the first time.

    Life. Is. Good.

  2. RUN
    great El Dorado + La Fauna Loop 3.38 mi 00:28 08:25 pace

    Another awesome run (hills!) with the best running buddy a guy ever had.

    Weather: Chance Rain, 22c/71f, 68%RH

    Lap 1, 8:19 min/mi
    Lap 2, 8:41 min/mi
    Lap 3, 8:05 min/mi

  3. RUN
    great Quick El Dorado Out-and-Back 2.46 mi 00:21 08:22 pace

    Working out the stiffness from the flight home this morning. My favorite running buddy rode along on his bike and told me about everything I missed while I was away. I'm a lucky, lucky dad.

  4. RUN
    great Treadmill 3 mi 00:28 09:20 pace

    Traveling on business - treadmill at the hotel (Beaumont, Calif.). 3 miles, 2% incline, 28:02. Good times.

  5. RUN
    great El Dorado 2.46 mi 00:21 08:29 pace

    Perfect (continuing recovery) run after a wonderful weekend. Moved several piles of rocks, built a stone wall, and spread a 1/4 ton of mulch. Love it.

    Min./Max.: 61.1 'F; Humidity: 33.5%

  6. RUN
    great Recovery Run 3 1.79 mi 00:16 08:54 pace

    Excellent, if a little fast. My 15yo nephew (exactly 30 yrs and 1 day younger than me) likes to push the pace.

      "Fast" because we stopped for about 2 mins to adjust his knee wrap (forgot to stop the watch), and did the run 60 secs, walk 30 secs bit. I'm pretty sure we were in the mid- to low-sevens during most of the running. Which isn't such a feat for only 1.7 mi., but I don't think it really qualifies as "recovery." (At least not for me.)

    great Recovery Run 2 1.78 mi 00:16 08:45 pace

    1.78 mi. Run 60 sec. / walk 30 sec.

    Weather: Overcast, 12c/53f, 70%RH

  8. RUN
    great Run Walk Recovery 1.78 mi 00:20 11:08 pace

    First run in a very, very long time. Stress fracture healed; cleared for recovery training. Run 30 sec., walk 60 sec. 1.75 mi. Felt like a million bucks. Can't wait to do it again.

    great Neighborhood ride 5 mi

    Easy ride in the hills with my family to test out the tibia. So far, so good. Nowhere near running yet. But I might be able to get a little (smooth surface*) cycling done in the meantime.

      But if you didn't get tired, it wouldn't be a challenge. Sort of like playing a video game that's way too easy.
      Missing seeing your miles, Damon.

    Stress. Fracture.

    As shown, left tibia, ~ 4 inches above the ankle. 8 - 10 weeks off (minimum). Full crutches; zero weight-bearing (at present).

    A new adventure in the slow lane.

  13. RUN
    tired Slogging 7.5 mi 01:07 08:57 pace

    Barely brought this one in under nine. (Credit the beetle juice.) I was bushed, walloped, spent. I'd mowed 1/2 acre in the morning and buried a drain tile in midday heat (102° F). We swam in ... read more

      Now that is a full day! Way to push it that last mile. You were trucking!
      A long time ago, you and I were running together on a country road. We would sprint between poles, then jog, then walk. Do you remember this? We were in HS I think. Anyway, I did this yesterday. I love to sprint. I've certainly lost a step, but damn it feels great!

      Way to push it, Dude. I think I will push up the distance again soon. Amazing how much a DM friend pushes you to get better. Love it.

    great Good Times 8 mi 01:12 08:58 pace

    Nice easy run this evening. Felt great from start to finish. The hills in miles 2 and 7 are only 1/4 mi each in length, but they're fairly steep -- about 5% grade. The first one isn't bad... read more

      Way to go, brother. The hills on the course that Rainey ran for her meet on Saturday kicked her butt. They had to finish up a pretty tough hill. That's a "kick" buster, eh? And my new loop starts with a very slow uphill climb for the first 1/4 mile. It seems almost ridiculous, but when you try to get your breathing leveled out it is just a ball buster (for me). That 8:20 is movin'!

    great Hottie 7.18 mi 01:04 08:54 pace

    Felt a little warmer today than I expected. Maybe the humidity. 93° F, 42% RH. Not bad, but I would've worn the ice bandana if I'd been thinking on the way out. Happy Weekend, everyone!

      Hottie indeed! From MN to TX... from one extreme to another. I would certainly choose the ice bandana over the ski mask and head lamp!

    Today's even effort. Pace (blue bars) against elevation change (brown lines). Worked on pushing the downhills a bit.
