&nbsp; &nbsp;10:50.82</p> <p>Food Lion- &nbsp; &nbsp;9:59.43 &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;12:57.85</p> <p>Took a little detour at Food Lion around the library just to get a little more time. &nbsp;Total run time 45:43.03.</p> Tue, 14 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Mon, Nov 13, 2017 http://fast.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-13-2017.html <p>Just couldn&#39;t get out. &nbsp;As I was about to get ready to run, my little one woke up. &nbsp;That was all the excuse I needed to avoid running. &nbsp;It was fun to spend some time with her. &nbsp;I don&#39;t regret that. &nbsp;Needless to say, I am a creature of habit. &nbsp;When my routine is thrown off, it is hard for me to readjust.</p> Mon, 13 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Fri, Nov 10, 2017 http://fast.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-10-2017.html <p>Slow jog to get these seemingly old bones moving. &nbsp;It was more of a fun run. &nbsp;Just took my time. &nbsp;I was all alone at the start and ran into a few people on my way back. &nbsp;The sun was coming up as I started. &nbsp;It was a good day.</p> <p>Out: 25:26.68 &nbsp;Back: 24:59.73 = 50:26.41</p> <p>So I felt like stepping back into the weight room today just out of curiosity. &nbsp;It has been five years since I quit lifting. &nbsp;Put 135 on the bench to warm up. &nbsp;Let&#39;s just say that became my workout. &nbsp;Pretty sad but looking forward to rising from the ashes.</p> Fri, 10 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Wed, Nov 08, 2017 http://fast.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-08-2017.html <p>This was an interesting workout for me. &nbsp;300m x 4, with a 100m walk break between reps. &nbsp;200m x 4 with a 100m walk break between reps and then 100m x 4 with a 100m walk break. &nbsp;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. &nbsp;It took me a whole hour to complete.</p> <p>When I got to the stairs the first time, I tried to take two steps at a time, but just didn&#39;t have the energy. &nbsp;Had to do it one at a time. &nbsp;Good workout though.</p> Wed, 08 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Mon, Nov 06, 2017 http://fast.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-06-2017.html <p>It was supposed to be about 3 miles but judging from my time, I would put it at about 2.5. &nbsp;14:02.38 - Out. 13:40 - Back, but we stopped short for some reason to gather then finished together. &nbsp;Just can&#39;t get rid of those hills. &nbsp;Wherever you go, there are hills to run up and hills to run down. &nbsp;Down isn&#39;t so bad, but I do dislike the up part.</p> Mon, 06 Nov 2017 07:00:00
