Did a few short sprints as a warm up then finished with a short jog for about 1.75 miles or maybe it was shorter.  Used a weighted vest for the jog which just makes you feel heavy.

One mile doesn't seem so bad, but you had to climb over walls and across monkey bars.  It was fun but not something I could do by myself.  Requires at least a buddy team.  I jumped in with a team of four.

It was supposed to be about 3 miles but judging from my time, I would put it at about 2.5.  14:02.38 - Out. 13:40 - Back, but we stopped short for some reason to gather then finished together.  Just can't get rid of those hills.  Wherever you go, there are hills to run up and hills to run down.  Down isn't so bad, but I do dislike the up part.

This was an interesting workout for me.  300m x 4, with a 100m walk break between reps.  200m x 4 with a 100m walk break between reps and then 100m x 4 with a 100m walk break.  Follow that up with 4 laps around the track but including the stadium stairs, and I did an extra lap because I got lost in the sauce.  It took me a whole hour to complete.

When I got to the stairs the first time, I tried to take two steps at a time, but just didn't have the energy.  Had to do it one at a time.  Good workout though.

Slow jog to get these seemingly old bones moving.  It was more of a fun run.  Just took my time.  I was all alone at the start and ran into a few people on my way back.  The sun was coming up as I started.  It was a good day.

Out: 25:26.68  Back: 24:59.73 = 50:26.41

So I felt like stepping back into the weight room today just out of curiosity.  It has been five years since I quit lifting.  Put 135 on the bench to warm up.  Let's just say that became my workout.  Pretty sad but looking forward to rising from the ashes.

Just couldn't get out.  As I was about to get ready to run, my little one woke up.  That was all the excuse I needed to avoid running.  It was fun to spend some time with her.  I don't regret that.  Needless to say, I am a creature of habit.  When my routine is thrown off, it is hard for me to readjust.

Jog around as a group with some rope climbing involved and my least favorite exercise lunges.

Jogged two miles in the morning.  In the afternoon, went on a fun run to explore a trail.  Both trails that I took ended in dense brush.  No need to look further than that.  Ran for time at an enjoyable pace.  46:30.54

Jogged the other half of the river trail.  It is relatively flat.  All the hills happen to be on my half of the trail.  I guess that is to make me better.  Averaged close to a 10 minute mile except for a couple of brief stops due to stomach issues.  Turns out to be around an 11:12 pace including the stops.

Short run but hard because of all that Thanksgiving food still in my tummy.  About a 12 minute pace.

3 x 300s followed by 6 x 200s with a 100m break between sprints.  Finished with two laps including stairs then just an easy 5 laps around the track at my pace for a cool down.  Love running at my own pace.
