Upcoming - Boring Posts

Well follks, there will be a bunch of boring posts on these pages for the next few weeks. I have no races on the calendar until San Diego RnR (June 6), and with that I’m just doing six miles in the relay. In the meantime, it will just be the drudgery (for you) about reading about my training. A few miles here. A few miles there.

For example, yesterday’s run was five miles along the ocean at Crystal Cove. My goal was to raise my heart rate into the general aerobic range (75% to 85% of max). FAIL! I averaged just below aerobic range for the duration. And just likemissing my goal, the rest of the run was overall uneventful. In fact, the only thing that I’ll remember about yesterday’s run is the pain in my legs! Wow! It’s pretty apparent that I need to slow things down and rebuild.

Oh. And I’ll try to throw in a trail run every now and then for some variety.

  5. Blogging is a little like running. Sometimes you blog a lot and sometimes you blog a little. Sometimes you feel like nut, sometimes you don't! I'm off to get me an Almond Joy. Keep bloggin'!

  7. Hi Glenn,
    Just so you know...I am not going anywhere:)

    Have fun with the trail running. I am thinking about doing a little of that on Sunday. I am heading up to Duluth to bring a few things home for my son. He has one more week of college and there is no way all of his junk is making it home with one trip:) Duluth has several great trails...I am checking them out! Have a wonderful weekend Glenn!

  8. i'm sure you will find something interesting to get into...

    besides yapping about our daily runs is how we all got into this blogging business, isn't it?

  9. I just saw your note. Yes I will be out there and will be running by that place where you saw me last. Probably going to turn around at that area between the little bridge and the Korean church. I'll be out there early. Say 'hi' if you see me.

    And about the heart rate.. I was readning the other da yabout how we burn fat when we are just trotting along, and not pushing it to the max, is this true?

  15. Not sure I'd characterize such posts as boring. Then again, I don't drool on myself :-).

    Enjoy the runs ahead, on the road or on the trail.
