Relentless Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com Tue, 17 Oct 2017 05:34:59 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Sat, Oct 14, 2017 <p>morning - 8.25 North Desert. Not too bad. A bit tired from the last couple days. Left hammy feeling decent. Right hammy a bit skiddish the last couple days. Twix enjoyed being out in the desert. (Peg green 86.25)</p> <p>My running was okay this week. It has been a long week in some ways. Glad we had a long weekend.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 14 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Oct 13, 2017 <p>morning - 30 minute walk with both dogs and Laney and Elin.</p> <p>noon - 8.25 BHNP. Met a little earlier today with the girls and ran a workout with them. They did a great job, and it feels as if they are ready to roll next week.&nbsp;</p> <p>afternoon - 7.5 BHNP. Met up with the boys. Warmed and cooked with them and ran around throughout the workout to encourage them. They also looked really strong today. (Boston 128.5)</p> Fri, 13 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Oct 12, 2017 <p>morning - 35 min walk with the dog. It is a nice way to start the day after being able to sleep in a bit. Plan on running a bit longer this afternoon, so no need to double, but I do feel bad when Twix only gets a walk - she lives to run.&nbsp;</p> <p>afternoon - 15.25 Chuckwalla/Temple Quarry. Met up with the girls team and ran to the overlook and back. Had a good chat with Robs - such a great guy. When we finished, I ran up the paved trail along the marathon course (always a beast). Then a quick drive down to Temple Quarry. I was a bit tired and was near the back. I eventually turned early and finished up on the road by the old airport. Long run for me, pretty tired, hammies held up pretty well.
