On this morning’s run, I wore a beta version of the new Forward Looking Turkey Radar goggles they’re developing at work.

Impressive.

Training Journal – 11/29/13:

  • Current plan: ZRQL Marathon Training Plan – Taper Week 1 of 3
  • Today’s session: 8/5 RuBi
  • Comments: Since this week’s training was shifted by a day and with my faster-than-normal pacing on yesterday’s Turkey Trot, I decided to do a recovery run instead of a run/bike. I did an out and back from my house up into Alum Rock Park. It was a peaceful run. I did 9.6 miles @ a 9:14 avg pace, avg cadence 87 & a run time of 1:28:31. [Strava]

When I got to Boccardo Peak on my run yesterday (elev. 1896′), I used an app called 360 Panaorama to capture a 360 shot.

Training Journal – 12/27/12:

  • Current plan: Big Sur Marathon Training Plan – W1/D4
  • Today’s session: 3 mile easy run @ 8:37-9:37 pace + day one of carb loading for a half marathon on Saturday.
  • Comments: I looked at today’s forecast before going to bed last night and decided that it would be too hard to pass up heading up to Alum Rock Park this morning: clear and cool would make for a perfect trail run. I avoided the North Rim Trail though (based on Sunday’s run) and did the Creek and South Rim Trails for 6.95 @ 9:51

I did my run this morning up in Alum Rock Park…ahead of the showers…and didn’t see anyone until the end. It was so peaceful.

Quiet time:

Training Journal – 12/23/12:

  • Current plan: Bay Trail Marathon Training Plan – Recovery Week
  • Today’s session: 6 mile long run @ 8:39 – 9:59 pace
  • Comments: I did 7.4 up in to Alum Rock Park @ an 11:46 pace. Pace was no doubt the victim of a soggy, sluggish, and almost impassable 3/4-mile section of the North Rim Trail. When you see deer tracks that are sunk in the mud and/or slipping all over the place, you know it’s going to be “fun!”

Weekly mileage: 12/17-23/12:

  • Running: 21.36
  • Bicycling: 31.83
  • Total: 53.19 (Probably not what a “recovery week” is suppose to look like, but I felt good.)
