  1. RUN
    great out-and-back 3.01 mi 00:34 11:11 pace

    Ended up being a great run, and I negative split by almost 30 seconds, but man, it was hard at first. That's what happens when you don't run in almost a week.

  2. VELO
    good three witches loop 17.64 mi 01:17 13.7mph pace

    Not the long ride I'd typically try to do on a Sunday. But with my husband recovering from surgery and me needing to both drop off and pick up the kids from Sunday school, it was the best I c... read more

  3. Thank you for all the kind comments and prayers. My husband came through his surgery great yesterday. Now on to healing and recovery but I think the worst part is behind us.

  4. RUN
    great waiting 3.1 mi

    Husband is currently in brain surgery all day. ..have hours to wait so I went for a run. In and around Golden Gate Park. Great stress release. Wow, hills. And I got rained on. Felt great.

  5. RUN
    great Mission Bay/Mission Beach 5 mi 01:00 12:00 pace

    After my swim, I went for a run around Mission Bay and then the Boardwalk out-and-back.

    great Bonita Cove 775 yd 00:15:00 34:03 pace

    My first open-water swim since Tiki at the end of September. I only did one lap---the water was cold getting in but I admit I was warmed up soon after I started to swim. My main goal was to get in ... read more

    great Costco Run 3.22 mi 00:37 11:29 pace

    I had pictures to pick up at Costo. I also had to run. So I did both. Mapped my route to run by Costo. Not only did I get to literally "run an errand" but it saved me from spending $100... read more

    good to Cardiff Kook and back 40.6 mi 03:18 12.3mph pace

    oh boy. Much slower than usual. To the Kook and back. Hot....so hot. Also rode with two friends. One hasn't ridden in 6 weeks and we kept having to wait for him up hills. A long time. Fi... read more

      Doing it helps. But heat will always slow you down. Just what it is. Plan areas with more stops for water so you can use a bottle to pour over you. Keeping the core cool is the most important.

      A camelback maybe? The advantage with a camelback is that I use one of those small blue something (?) that one puts in the freezer. Can't remember what it's called :-(

    good out-and-back 6.11 mi 01:13 11:55 pace

    My first "long run" in 2 weeks. Hard to believe that just 2 weeks ago I set a PR in a half mary. Today I slogged through 6. Just goes to show how being sick and not running will affect, ... read more

      Great job, girlfriend. It is hard to run in this heat no matter how well you're trained. I see a Thursday run in our future once I get my half marathon behind me.

      Warm and not feeling good is a tough combination. I'm wiped after my ride.

      I always find that first run after a half to be the hardest. Great job.

      Distance is counted by an accelerometer, not GPS. It recognizes your acceleration after you push off. So if your push off is weak, it may miss a 25. If you accelerate hard mid-lap, it may count an extra 25.

      I hit lap after every set or sub-set. So if I do a 4x200 I hit start, after 200 I hit lap. When I start again, I hit lap again. Repeat.
