Didn&#39;t get out as soon as I&#39;d have liked to because of decorating for the dance. Homecoming week is over. Woohoo!</p> Sat, 26 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 25, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-25-2020.html <p>am--4.25 A decent run w/ what amounted to a tempoish finish for the last 10-12 minutes.</p> Fri, 25 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 23, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-23-2020.html <p>am--5.75 A nice grass run. I needed a slow burner. Homecoming week is stressful.</p> Wed, 23 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 21, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-21-2020.html <p>am--5.25 Up towards the Canyons.</p> Mon, 21 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 19, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-19-2020.html <p>am--6.25 Anasazi to the homestead on my own. Good run.</p> <p>I also finished&nbsp;<em>The House of the Scorpion</em>&nbsp;by Nancy Farmer. Quick YA read.</p> Sat, 19 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 18, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-18-2020.html <p>pm--5 Grass mikes w/ 4x striders at the practice field. What a beautiful evening even if it was a bit hazy. The new Flaming Lips LP is great, a return to form.</p> Fri, 18 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 17, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-17-2020.html <p>pm--6 Heights Route w/ 5x 60-sec. pickups. The pickups felt good because my form becomes more efficient and fluid at a quicker pace.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 17 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 16, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-16-2020.html <p>am--DI and crushing it through the hood w/ the kiddos. Finished up the run trying to keep up w/ Beattie.</p> Wed, 16 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 15, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-15-2020.html <p>pm--6 Tready light tempo. The tempo amounted to about 15 minutes of 7:45 pace. It took more focus than it should have. I&#39;m bringing some different paces to try to work on my fitness. Kind of fun.</p> Tue, 15 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 14, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-14-2020.html <p>pm--5 A decent run watching the LA-SD game.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 14 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 12, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-12-2020.html <p>am--5.25 Anasazi w/ Tom and his buddy. Seems like Fall comes in the morning. It was so beautiful this morning.</p> Sat, 12 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 11, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-11-2020.html <p>am--5 Grass loops in the dark. I got slobber attacked by some fluffy dogs and had a good chuckle when, with my bare feet getting colder, the line &quot;The lunatic is on the grass&quot; came through the earbuds. PF, not the plantar fasciitis version, makes most things better.</p> Fri, 11 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 10, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-10-2020.html <p>am--6 Newer morning route w/ 5x 60-sec. pickups. I tossed and turned all night, but, surprisingly, it was easy to jump out of bed this morning. What an autumnal morning it was. This morning was a little cooler than it normally is in the beginning third of September.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 10 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 09, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-09-2020.html <p>pm--5 Anasazi to the creosote on another cooler afternoon. We might be out of the triple digits in a few days.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 09 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 08, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-08-2020.html <p>pm--5 Grass loops in a cooler evening. I did have to struggle, however, w/ the wind. I thought about striders but aborted halfway into the first. Didn&#39;t want to push the hammy.</p> Tue, 08 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 07, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-07-2020.html <p>pm--6 A decent run w/ 4x 60-sec. in the low 7s.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 07 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 05, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-05-2020.html <p>am--5 Anasazi on a beautiful morning. Even if it&#39;s only morning temps, autumn shows promises of arriving this year.</p> Sat, 05 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 04, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-04-2020.html <p>am--5 Some grass miles w/ 4x 60-sec. pickups at ~7-min. pace.</p> <p>pm--3 Extended DI loop w/ Beattie.</p> Fri, 04 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 03, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-03-2020.html <p>pm--3 Some treasure miles after a long day.</p> Thu, 03 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 02, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-02-2020.html <p>am--5 DI and Bank w/ the girls. They get after even on the short morning runs.</p> Wed, 02 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 01, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-01-2020.html <p>pm--5 Sone easy miles, feeling through tight hamstrings. Seems like they aren&#39;t as cringy when I focus on lifting my knees.</p> Tue, 01 Sep 2020 06:00:00 Mon, Aug 31, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-31-2020.html <p>am--7 A good run through Dixie Downs north w/ 5x 60-second pickups. My hammy was acting a bit funky at the beginning of the run, normal during the run, and a bit tight after.</p> Mon, 31 Aug 2020 06:00:00 Sat, Aug 29, 2020 http://vis.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-29-2020.html <p>am--7 PV Main Street w/ some longer pickups. From the start, I didn&#39;t attempt to hit the CV pace assigned to the kids, but I was moving faster than I have for a while. Makes me think I&#39;ve kept myself in okay shape but could use some actual training. (Thinking face.)</p> Sat, 29 Aug 2020 06:00:00
