Of Deer and Bison…

In my informal planning mind, I had set Monday aside as a 12 hour hunting day – perfect for a running day off out of both necessity and reality.  Well, I guess I have a blog following member of the Odocoileus virginianus family … Continue reading

All Things Considered….

Not too bad.  6×600 w/200 walking rest back to the start (about 3:00).  Didn’t get the early start I had originally planned – checked the weather Saturday night and saw the difference between a 7am start (31 degs) and a … Continue reading

Rolling, Rolling, Rolling, Rawhide!

Shout out to the men and women from my old Navy squadron, VRC-40.  If I possessed one ounce of internet savvy you’d be hearing the theme song right about now, but I don’t so you won’t.  I do feel like … Continue reading

Turkey Day Dress Rehearsal

Took yesterday off, then avoided the invitation/temptation to jump in the early spin class for quite possibly the first time ever – didn’t want to have dead legs for the track session.  Got out to the high school by 0730, … Continue reading

Running with the Canucks

Just finished a second long run here in Vancouver.  Same route both days, around Stanley Park and then across downtown.  The park trail is blacktop, right along the seawall following the coast of the wooded peninsula park – flat as a pancake … Continue reading

Back on (the) Track

First track workout of the indoor season planned for this morning.  Didn’t hope to try to do anything memorable, goal was to do something a little quicker than a tempo run that wouldn’t put too much stress on the body. … Continue reading
