That is too short a time to have been 1.5 miles. &nbsp;Probably 1.2 or just over 1. &nbsp;Regardless, the humidity sucked all the enjoyment from the run. &nbsp;I was completely drenched.</p> Mon, 02 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 29, 2018 http://fast.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-29-2018.html <p>Didn&#39;t do a thing on this day.&nbsp; Went out to White Lake and learned how to operate a zodiac.&nbsp; Kind of fun.&nbsp; While it is simple to operate, I have to go slow.&nbsp; The steering is very simple but for some reason not very intuitive to me.&nbsp; Oh well.</p> Fri, 29 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 28, 2018 http://fast.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-28-2018.html <p>Two laps around the neighborhood. &nbsp;Jogged the first one to warm up. &nbsp;On the second lap, added 60/60 but quickly lost count around 4. &nbsp;I think it took me 7 to get around the loop. &nbsp;60 second run followed by recovery at a 60 second jog.</p> <p>Lap 1 - 17:47.94</p> <p>Lap 2 - 17:16.08 = 35:04.02</p> <p>After cooling down, I thought I could do a set of pushups and situps. &nbsp;30&nbsp;knee pushups which were harder than I thought. &nbsp;33 situps which came even harder and started cramping up at 27. &nbsp;(Yet in my head, this was all a fluke and I still think I can do what I did a few years ago without putting in the work. &nbsp;I may never learn.)</p> Thu, 28 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 27, 2018 http://fast.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-27-2018.html <p>Rest day. &nbsp;Feel like one big sore muscle.</p> Wed, 27 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 26, 2018 http://fast.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-26-2018.html <p>Did a few sprints and squats to warm up. &nbsp;My knee doesn&#39;t like the sliding movement from side to side but it held up. &nbsp;We worked on the ropes for a little bit. &nbsp;Finished up with a reverse pyramid of pushups and situps. &nbsp;30, 20, 10 pushups and 36, 24, 12 situps.</p> Tue, 26 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 25, 2018 http://fast.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-25-2018.html <p>Running 3 miles a week at your own pace really doesn&#39;t do anything for me. &nbsp;I always feel like I am the fastest man in the world when I do that. &nbsp;Today, we ran as a group. &nbsp;About 1.4 out to the turn around point where everyone had to wait for me to show up. &nbsp;We turned back and did last man up runs. &nbsp;My body was screaming at me but managed to finish. &nbsp;This just brought me back down to earth. &nbsp;Oh the pain.</p> Mon, 25 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 23, 2018 http://fast.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-23-2018.html <p>Minimum day.&nbsp; 30 knee pushups, 32 situps and then a 3 mile jog.&nbsp; Route was my favorite neighborhood loop.</p> <p>Lap 1 - 19:02.77&nbsp; Lap 2 - 18:45.28 = 37:48.05</p> <p>Could be better.&nbsp; Could be worse.</p> Sat, 23 Jun 2018 06:00:00
