GoAM - 10 Highland. I guess this was Highland in a round about way. Had various thoughts of where to go, what to do, and how far to go for this run, and as I got going, I finally settled on City Wells or maybe Bracken's Loop. But as I got up into the desert, the bathroom called and so I dropped through the tunnel under the freeway and went to Highland Park. Then decided to just loop it back home while doing the same workout we did at practice a couple weeks ago with 5 minute sets. Didn't really have a pace goal, but just wanted a solid effort. By the end both Twix and I were tired. Interestingly, my pace for the end of nearly every run the past few weeks has been as quick as the ending 5 min set today. (Cumulus 321.5)

Not a lot of miles this week, but solid runs. 

Goals for next week: kind of chill before practice starts.

AM - 7 North Desert. Hadn't been up furtheron the dirt road for awhile, so Twix and I went that way. As per the usual around here, this section of the desert is getting destroyed like al the others. They put in some new big power lines over the spring and now there is a big work yard all bricked off out in the middle of the desert (won't be the middle of the desert too much longer).  The price of progress I guess. At least we'll "always" have the preserve!  Flabs after. That's how I feel at least. (Peg oly 340.5)

AM - 7.75 Dino Tracks. Twix and I went up on the trails today and did Dino Tracks with a return via the North Desert. It was a good run and the mileage is adding up for the dog (who, like me, hasn't put a lot in lately).  One thing I saw really bugged... some idiot took a lawnmower up into the desert reserve. It had no wheels and no push handle, so they must have carried it at least a half mile though the desert to dump it there. People are so stupid. Abs. Achilles pretty painful at first.

AM - 7 Hell's Hole.  Down onto the river trail with Twix.  We had a nice run on a beautiful morning.  I knew I shouldn't have said anything about my achilles feeling good because this morning they both hurt so bad for the first couple miles while they stretched out.  Ahhh.  Abs after.  (Peg black33 210.5)

AM - 7 Highland.  Up on top of the ridge with Twix to watch a beautiful sunrise.  Every run the last few weeks has been ending with great negative splits.  Improvement in the hammy and achilles... maybe a little bit.  Schools out so that's crazy; can we get talking XC yet!  Ended with abs.  (Peg blue 481)
