Cooler temps yesterday after work. My warmup mile jog was the fastest in awhile at 8:07 when I’ve been warming up at 8:30 pace in the middle of summer. My 400M sprint was a 1:04.5 which is the fastest I’ve managed to run it I awhile. I probably could’ve did it faster if there were less people on the track which didn’t force me to run out of my lane.

Had to get a new windshield installed this morning and they need it for a couple hours due to camera recalibration. Luckily it's a three minute ride to get on some nice trails. Through two golf courses (one has held multiple PGA events and it's extra gorgeous,) up to a farmer's market where I had a coffee, and some beautiful scenery. When I got back the car was ready to go. Easiest service visit ever.

That sounds like a lot more productive service visit than mine normally are. My dealership is a couple blocks from one of the best ice cream places in Metro Detroit so when I drop my Jeep off for work, I usually walk over and get a sundae or a few scoops of sugar and fat.

Another 20 miles on the bike yesterday, which gets me to about 55 miles for the week and 4,500 feet of elevation gain.

Now if only I could do that in a single day...

The city has closed a bunch of streets to non-local vehicle traffic, so it’s possible to string together a pretty long ride without having to share the road with cars much at all. I’ve been enjoying that little upside to the apocalypse.

It feels like I'm wearing nothing at all!

Oh yeah. My wife is not a fan of my tights. Nothing is left to the imagination.

First ride of the week. Don’t let Strava fool you, there was easily 10 feet of elevation change per lap. 😁

3.1 miles with the dogs. I tweaked my lower back a few days ago carrying my son (aggravating an existing injury). This run was slow, but it’s always good to stretch the legs. Temps in the mid 80s.

3.1 mile cross country race this morning. Overall time was 23:30, 7:37 pace.

Frankly I’m really disappointed in this haha. It’s a hard course (all of
mile 1 and half of mile 2 is uphill) but even with the anticipated 2 minute buffer to your time I’d still would have liked to been faster. I’ve been battling a migraine the past few days and this morning I just felt so lethargic. I wish I could have gotten myself in a better state but just wasn’t there. Good news is I have 2 other races in the next month to improve. Gotta start somewhere right?

Buttonwillow Raceway Park. It's on I-5, about 30 minutes from Bakersfield. First California Lemons race of the year because COVID. Having a grand old time!

11.11 miles this morning at 8:15/mile pace. New PRs for 10 miles and 15k.

I felt like I had quite a bit left in the tank at the end so I probably could have pushed myself a bit more.

No run today, but we did something way more fun. This was my 3-year old’s first time climbing. My niece climbed as well, and the kids loved it. I climbed twice, to put up the anchor, and to take it down. This is Crown Rock on Flagstaff Mountain. The line probably is 4th class to a 5.6 or so finish (I finagled a line that felt like maybe 5.9).

6 miles this morning. Didn’t time myself by gauging by the time I left and the time I came back I was just under sub-7 pace. Then spent the remainder of the day at the beach and a brewery. Great transition to the work week.

I ran a steady 4 laps of my 1.4km mini-XC course today, first time out in a week, and nothing tweaked, hurt or pulled. I should have been running this as a race this weekend (or last) but I'm not taking any chances right now.

Total: 5.6km (3.5 miles), total time: 25:40, which is 4:35/km or 7:22/mile.

The good news is that the laps got faster every time, the first was 6:44 and the last exactly 6 minutes, and I felt like I could have kept up that pace for pretty much as long as I wanted.

I'm going to pretend the break never happened in terms of my gradual distance increase in my long runs. So my next run will be 21.6km. I'll still keep it relatively slow.
