2 more this morning in the wind and the rain (which I quite like, actually). Ran around the top of Bernal hill, so a bit of elevation change for a, um, change.

I’m going to try adding one more run per week. Bay To Breakers looms...

ran first 3 at 8 mph then slowed down to 7.7 for mile 4 but cranked to 8.5 for last quarter

was only planning to run 3 and forgot to turn on the treadmill fan so I was sweating like a dog

10.3 miles Saturday followed by 9.3 miles Sunday. Finished the week with 41.6 miles. Was eyeing a half marathon in February but won't be in my best form due to a minor surgery later in the month.

Just another quick 5K tonight. 7:5x pace. Keeping the intensity up and the duration low with a focus on form/stride dynamics. Right leg is feeling a lot better.

Decided to upgrade my watch from Apple Watch to the Garmin Fenix 5s Plus, really digging the additional data and functionality.
I have a Fenix 2..geesh they are on 5 now? I do love the 4 metric screen on mine when I wear it. I opt for elapsed time, avg pace, current pace, miles.

Last night I got in a quick 3 miles. Warm last night and today is another warm one considering it is January.

When I was out on my run last night there were a couple of helicopters hovering overhead for a good 30+ minutes a couple miles to the west of me. I didn't think much of it as there are some small lakes over that way and I figured they were responding to a report of somebody in one of them or something.

This morning I was looking at the paper I read there was a smash and grab at the jewelry counter of a local Costco and they were using the sheriff's department to help search for the suspects from the air. The suspects were armed and were actually caught about 2 blocks away from where I was maybe 15 or 20 minutes after I was out of that area.

My wife always worries when I go out running at nighttime... maybe I won't tell her about that search last night.

7 miles last night. I was tired before the run but it gave me some energy.

Is this also a place where I can admit I have completed 9 days of meditation since the beginning of the year? I use a guided app for 10 minutes in the morning. I cannot tell if it is helping at all but one item, focusing on breathing, helped when I tried to push the tempo of my run on Sunday.

^ No judgement from me re:meditation. If it helps you do what you are trying to do or is something you enjoy, what's wrong with that?

I wasn't planning on running last night but at 10:00 p.m. I noticed it was still about 45º and I knew it was going to be colder this morning so I decided to give my newly delivered shoes (Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 Shield) a try. I got in 5.8 miles. Right around my halfway point, I felt a noticeable drop in the temperature and when I got home I checked my little weather station thermometer and the temperature had fallen to 32º. That's quite a drop in less than an hour.

I'm glad I got the miles in last night instead of this morning: when I got up today it was 22º with the windchill making it "feel like" 12º. :freeze:

I broke down and finally submitted to be treated by a sports therapist/physiologist. She worked on my right leg for a torturous 2 hours...I was gripping that damn massage table for dear life. While there are massive areas on my legs that feel like they were drilled with a 70mph softball, I actually feel noticeably better.

Took my new Altra Escalante's out for an easy run. 5 miles at 8:2x pace. The 0 drop might take a little getting used to.
