8mi, 7:29/mi, 134bpm — Z2 Base Miles

Feeling pretty spry today. That’s a good pace for me relative to those HR and power meter values.


Awesome 5k PR @Michigan Planner - That’s a HUGE improvement in just a short period of time.

@imatlas - If it makes you feel any better, my pack was just a bit lighter than yours (~37lbs without water) when I hiked the Wunderland Trail around Mt Rainier. The pack never bothered me and we were trekking through 90% snowpack with 0 trail visibility. That god for the Garmin Topo maps on my watch or we’d have been screwed.

GPS has bailed my ass put on a couple of occasions. Once we got dropped off in the Yukon 50 miles from our planned destination and the helicopter pilot gave us one of his aeronautical maps, but 1" = 50 miles is useless to a hiker. We wound up navigating with an old school Garmin with a teeny tiny little screen.

The asshole pilot (who couldn't stand us) yelled "You'll have an adventure now, boys!" as he flew away.

We got him back though: we never paid for our flight time. He was so sick of us that when we tried to negotiate a discount (based on getting ditched in the wrong spot) he threw us out and swore he wouldn't accept a dime. So he never got one.

What did you do to him?

It wasn’t fast, or pretty, but I did 5.9 trail miles at over 8000’ elevation (58:16). We’re camped at 8150’.

5K last night put on by a neighboring running club. Just a hair short as I had 3.05 miles on my watch but finished in 20:27. Happy I still would have been under 21 with the extra 5 hundredths.

Flat out and back but so many turns as we snaked along the waterfront. Started waaay to fast with the help of a tailwind, 6:30, second mile 6:40, and flagged super hard from lack of fitness and the head wind the last mile at 6:57. Out-kicked 3 people at the finish.

Wore my endorphin pros which definitely aided me. Would have been curious to see my time in racing flats.

7.2 miles last night on the trails. Started a little later than normal and it was getting dark under the canopy. When I did pop out at one spot where you can usually see downtown, it was super foggy. Come to find out, it was smoke from wildfires in California and Canada.

10mi, 8:08/mi, 127bpm — Just a Z1 recovery jog. Enjoying the beautiful weather here. 60f, low dew point, no smoke. A late July gift!



Awesome work @kjb !! You crushed it!! I’m not a 5k runner…in fact, I hate the distance, but one of the best tips that I got was to hold back as much as you can the first mile and then treat it like a 2 mile race. It’s so easy to blow up that first mile and lock up.

thanks Dusty. yeah in a former life i was much more controlled in my pacing, but a year plus of not racing has me really rusty. also my brain totally thinks my fitness is also pre-covid so it keeps writing pace checks my body hasn't entirely been able to cash yet. i am super happy i hit my sub 21 goal though regardless of how the splits played out. but would really like to be more purposeful with them, something to work on.
