Quick jog between work and "home work." I have, what is for me, a "streak" going and didn't want to miss a day. Just me and the powerlines on this quick jaunt. Doing some construction just to the south of the track, (which they have been working on for the last three months or so). Looks to be a retention ditch. Very windy today. Temps in the low 90's. :)

Long day at work made for a late evening jog with my canine companion. Didn't feel overly motivated, but I'm really trying to recommit and make time for my love of hiking. Went out to the Durango Trail - which is really more of a powerline road or a community path than a trail. Followed it from 83rd ave to 91st and then back. It was after 7:30 so I had my head lamp with me, but the path is so flat and straight that it wasn't really necessary. Plus, there was a (nearly) full moon out so it was already fairly bright (for night). It actually made for a pleasant view (disregarding the overhead powerlines) as I jogged backed to 83rd. Really not much of a trail, but if you are looking to stretch your legs and you live in the area it's better than walking neighborhood blocks. Murdoch, my canine companion, ran with me for the first time. So it was a good introductory course for him :D

After work jog. Went west to east from 73rd Ave. the stretch from 75th to about 79th is "rough" as it includes an unfinished subdivision. The rest were horse developed horse paths. Ok place to run. Proximity to the house makes it a great fall back pace to jog.

Did a short run from 107th ave. Got enough elevation last night. Wanted something flat and close to home. Followed the path for 2.5 miles and then turned around. Not much activity except for lizards and pigeons. Dis see 3 vultures working something over nearby....probably a pigeon.

Quick pre-dawn run. Warmed up for a mile, popped off a few intervals and slowly cruised back to my car. This trail is set amidst farms, fields and subdivisions. So sometimes it smells like dirt, other times like freshly cut hay and other times like the middle of a dairy farm. This morning it was like a dairy farm, opened my car door and almost gagged.

Legs still feel a little dead from Sunday's long run. Fairly easy run with a couple of one mile intervals thrown in. Little disheartening to realize that my pace for a hard mile long interval was the pace that a few of the people I was running with over the weekend could maintain for 20 miles up and down hills. Starting to dawn on me that I'm getting older and slower.

Slow jog to warm up and threw in some 1 mile repeats to keep it interesting.

Another quick pre-dawn run before work. Moon was pretty bright and almost got away without using my headlamp this morning.

Easy jaunt to start the morning. Could actually see my breath this morning, got back to my car and it was 47 degrees.

Flat, dark, boring & uneventful. However with temps in the 50's it felt refreshing to open the front door and head outside for a run. Tested out a new headlamp, quite an upgrade from my $10 Wal-Mart special.

Ultra practice commences this morning, if I can remain injury free and keep my annual sinus infection at bay have plans to run two ultras this winter. Hit the trail at 4:30 AM and did an easy 30 minutes to loosen up the legs. Went home and threw around the kettlebell for another 30 minutes.

Usually spend about a month in the fall and a month in the spring dramatically cutting back my mileage, intensity & AEG and spend more time in the weight room. So after beating up my legs in the squat rack yesterday just wanted to do a short, easy run to loosen them up.

Generally not much to see on this trail, but today I saw three owls just sitting next to the trail and one crane hanging out in the one remaining pool of water in the drainage canal.

Short run before work, warmed up for 10 minutes and did intervals the rest of the run.

It's like a Turkish bath out there this morning. After two hard weeks of training, this is my easy week. Easy jog along the Durango Trail with a few easy strides thrown in to stretch my legs.

Been doing too many hilly runs, so giving my knees a break this morning. Had a breeze from the south, which meant I got to smell the waste water treatment plant for a good chunk of the run.

Another soupy midwestern-like morning for a run. Planning on a long run this weekend in Flagstaff, so a fairly short & simple interval workout on the Durango Trail. Just enough speedwork to stretch my legs.

Perfect spot for a little speed work, warmed up for a mile then did some intervals. This trail is finally getting discovered, saw almost 10 people out walking or running this morning.
