Another Week

Well – I was conspicuously missing from these pages last week. I had a busy week (too much busy work, unfortunately not enough productive work) and some weather issues (over 90 here at the beach early last week) created some scheduling and rescheduling requirements. Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday/Saturday became Thursday/Friday/Saturday/Sunday. Then, a last minute appointment on Friday put the kibosh on that day. Finally, I found out (not surprisingly) that I’m not in as good a shape as I want to be in when I hit the trails for a 12 miler on Saturday. I made it through 8 of the miles. Man. What a sad sack.

Saturday’s run slog was spectacular though. We are very much into Southern California fall.





The good news is that goals are made to strive toward, and plans are the road maps to get there. I think I’m still on the right road – but hey – I’m a guy. I don’t ask for directions:

  • Monday/Tuesday: Scheduled rest
  • Wednesday: 4 miles
  • Thursday: 6 miles
  • Friday: Scheduled rest
  • Saturday: 12 miles (heading back into the hills – so will probably be 8 to 10 miles to be realistic)
  • Sunday: 4 miles
  • Total: 22-26 miles

Nose to the grindstone and all that crap….


  1. 2nd round of rose blooms around here right now, it's very pretty. Oh, those poor suckers going into winter around the rest of the country.

  2. Pretty pretty - love the CA falls!! Nice on 8 miles!! :-)

  3. Now that those 90-deg days are hopefully behind us, time to put the pedal to the metal/medal!
