Ronaldo Loops

Nike has two international sized soccer fields put end to end right in the middle of campus that are perfect for running intervals on. Hoss and I measured out a course and got to work. The plan called for 6x1k at 3:07 effort, 3 min recovery. There was a bit of snow out on the fields, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise as it was easier to see the cones marking the course. I guess the footing was good because I ran well in flats and it was dark. Jerry Schumacher, coach of the first non-African under 27:00 for 10k showed up and chatted a bit. The man is amazingly nice and super-talkitive. I thought I was going to have to tell him to be quiet so we could get running. Good thing this workout wasn't about the recovery.

Summary: 3:07/3:11/3:09/3:11/3:12/3:10 - can't complain.

SnowCast - Chili

Well, it will if it gets any colder up here. After a quick email to Mom for some comfort food recepies, I hit the grocery store and stocked up. There's nothing quite like cooking chili while watching some snowflakes fall. The chili turned out delicious and freezes well, so I'm set for a few days. Then I can work on some gumbo, then later some taco soup. Yeah, I'm real committed to getting back down to college racing weight of 158lbs, real committed.

Ran the usual two Glendoveer loops, sans Nurse, plus some strides in John Luby park. Unfortunately, my blogs tend to get boring as I tend to run the same routes over and over and over and over again.

Over The Creek.....

Through the woods for this edition of the SLR. Hoss was feeling under the weather and we chilled out and only ran about 11.5 miles. I would've liked to go longer, but I'm facing a long season of running through 2011, so I can remain somewhat restrained for the time being. We ran at the perfect time Sunday, as it soon turned cold and gray and started threatening snow. In actuality, it's the kind of weather I love running in and part of the reason I moved up to Oregon from Louisiana. Hopefully we do get some snow later on, mostly because it's fun to play in.

Day/Week: 11.5/54.5
