Orienteering 1:30:00 [2] **** 11.0 km (8:11 / km)
shoes: VJ Spikes

FCE training. Most of the time doing 150-200 meter attackpoint exercises, hopping from platform to platform. Took it very easy, but still twisted my ankle at ~30 minutes. Considered bagging it to do a trail run, but it felt better, so I continued the orienteering.

Run 1:00:00 [3] 11.5 km (5:13 / km)
shoes: VJ Spikes

TNT Power Edition.

Eddie B. in the house, along with Randy, Tom, and Speedy. You know that is going to produce some results.

Run 10:30 [3] **** 1.3 km (8:05 / km)
shoes: VJ Spikes

The Balter Special -- the classic Silvermine map memory exercise. All good.

Run 6:30 [3] 1.3 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: VJ Spikes

Supposed to be a warmdown but Tom wouldn't have none of that.


TNT Food Edition.

Speedy on the grill, corn on the cob, Tom working his aesthetic magic, Anne with the cake, the list goes on and on.

Very nice wine, chased down with some of Randy's nice single malt.

Can any other club compete? I guess we'll see this time next year.

Sometimes it is nice to run by yourself. I'm looking forward to that today, free from the pace creep whenever I run with guys like Tom and Vadim.

Sometimes I'm reminded of the Rolling Stones song when running with other people...

"If you start me up
If you start me up I'll never stop
If you start me up
If you start me up I'll never stop
I've been running hot..."

Well, that's all that's fit to print, and admittedly these lyrics point to other activities; but, I just see them in a running context.

Ankle also feels intermittently bad when walking around the house.

Run 41:20 [2] 7.82 km (5:17 / km)
shoes: Reeboks

Easy on flatter route.

Run 6:00 [2] 1.2 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: VJ Spikes

TNT Classic. With Tom.

Down to the Drive.

Run 23:09 [3] 3.05 mi (7:35 / mi)
shoes: VJ Spikes

Down to the bridge. Already faster pace than intended.

Run 4:39 [3]
shoes: VJ Spikes

Down to the Lincoln Drive. Still too fast.

Run 4:37 [3]
shoes: VJ Spikes

Back to the bridge.

Run 21:06 [4] 3.05 mi (6:55 / mi)
shoes: VJ Spikes

Speed-wise this shouldn't be a level 4 as it is nearly 1.5 minutes off the PR for this stretch, but the legs were toast, so I'm calling it 4.

Run 10:21 [2]
shoes: VJ Spikes

Cooldown. Back to the clubhouse.

Dasha decided she wanted to push it up the hill a bit. Craziness.

Run 40:00 [2] 7.82 km (5:07 / km)
shoes: Adidas

"Flatter" route. Legs felt like they've been beaten. That's what I get for running two days with Speedy.

Run 1:35:00 [3] 18.0 km (5:17 / km) +2m 5:16 / km

TNT, AC edition, with Speedy.

Ran ~ 30 in the soft sand down, but my ankle started feeling bad, so we moved over to the wet, packed sand. That was awsome. Like running on pavement, but a little softer.

Felt nice to stretch it out. Did some "strides" halway through to catch Dasha (who was not cooperating to be caught).

We did the last ~20 back in soft sand, barefoot. That was great - and the ankle didn't hurt.


A successful innaugural TNT AC Edition. (Although, being on a weekend, this really isn't TNT.)

Anyway, good brisk running, and hard on the legs (they felt pretty worked over on Sunday afternoon/evening.)

Also, horse game and a movie. A lot of fun!
