Scroop & Freds Route

Did a nice little run with my father in law. He has a route that him and my brother in law use to run a few times a week. I loaded up "Map My Ride" (just used it as a run, it works both ways) on my iPhone and decided to map it. I have used my Nike Plus Sport Band for this run before but I did both this time.

We actually don't start in front of the house we walk a few blocks then run to the end of a culdesac and start from there. Check out the map below.

This is the Nike Plus info. I sprinted at the end and had a nice speed burst on the "log"

Lacin' up again.

Went running with my wife today, I gave her a small nudge and pushed her along, she did really well.  She stepped it up in the end and I was impressed.  

My running goal?  I need to shave two minutes off my 2 mile time, which is currently around 17:30.  In high school, I used to be able to run about 14-15:00 2 miles, although I ran 3 for XC.  I know, it's been a long time since high school, but I think I can do it.  I just have to commit.

I found an exact plan for shaving 2 minutes off on

So, I'm going to work at doing that.  Now is the question of when to run?  I ran in the morning before, early before work, and I kinda liked that, but that was mostly because it got hot outside and I didn't want to do it in the evening.  We'll see.

Check out the plan:

Running Poem

Yeah, I know it doesn't rhyme.  I wrote this a while ago.

feet pounding.
heart beating.
lungs pumping.
oh, another runner.
head up.
fix stride.
straighten form.
wave hello.
lose form again.
drudge on.

Hitting the pavement once again.

I went running yesterday, finally back out there.  Thought that I would take it kinda easy, nothing hard at all, but I still got a good workout out of it.

I just ran down to the water and back, a good 2 mile loop total.  Half way through though, that pain I had before, in my calves, came back, but only in my right calf muscle.  Weird huh?  

But I did stretch a good bit before I went out, so maybe I should have stretched that right one better!

Oh, but it felt good to run again.  I went mountain biking this past weekend and wore out my quads on the hills so I didn't know how I would feel running so soon.  I just need to get it out of my system and I'll be good.

Well, I thought I'd give you an update on my running so click the link below to see it in more detail, and you get out there too!

Just about ready.

I'm still recovering, probably longer than I should have, but I've been busy.

This past weekend my parents came into town and them myself and my wife all went cycling.  I think we did around 12 miles(?).  I'll have to check again.

We just took our time, riding from Old Town to lunch in Georgetown and taking little stops wherever we wanted.  

My legs were feeling totally fine the entire time though.  I know it's a different set of muscles but we'll see how I feel today or tomorrow.

I plan on lacing up the shoes again to see if I can get some more miles under my feet before things get busy again.

More friends and relatives are coming down this weekend so I'll have to get in those runs in and loaded soon.  

My wife is also out of town this week so running will keep me from getting too bored!  If I'm left to my own devices, I don't think I'll last very long.  I end up just eating chips watching TV or playing XBOX or something.

Hopefully, I'll stay motivated till I get off tonight so when I get home, I'll just stretch and be out the door.  Oh, after letting the dog do his thing first.
