Hi i'm Chuck Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/ Sat, 29 Apr 2017 19:17:32 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Thu, Apr 13, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-13-2017.html <p>So, about mileage and math. That crap is hard man. Did 2 at the school and a windy pre-meet, hit a 30.4 and a 30.2 so mehhhhhhh. Drover over to Mountain View to get in some miles in a new place and run with some new people. 1 mile warm up with the milers then did 1.5 during a lul in teammates racing. Cooled down once with a bunch of guys and learned the Bensons on Timp aren&#39;t actually related, that was shocking. 2.25 from that cooldown then another cooldown this time with Joe Benson(who is NOT related to Brennan)&nbsp;Mike and Thom that cooldown was 4 miles. It was at 2 miles out on the second cooldown where I realized I am in fact very dumb and had gone a wee bit over. lol whoops.</p> Thu, 13 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Apr 12, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-12-2017.html <p>Easy 8 and it felt pretty good. Grass mile kinda hurt though so that was a little odd.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 12 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Apr 11, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-11-2017.html <p>Bussiness as usual for the most part, aside from the golf ball. Found a golf ball and it stuck with us for 7 miles until we deposited it for another time. 6.5 with the boys then the last 1.5 with Dalpal because thom and mike had build ups. Also check out my entry from last Sat twas a good one.</p> Tue, 11 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Apr 10, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-10-2017.html <p>Had the option to do speed or to just do a distance run. Chose speed along with Dalpal. Speed was 6x1min uphill @mile effort. Little hard to get a good feel for mile effort uphill but things felt pretty good. Satisfied with how it went and kept things consistent, was hard to keep positive especially for those last two. Finished up to 8 and I think I need to work on hydrating because those 3.5 miles after speed were unpleasant.</p> Mon, 10 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 08, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-08-2017.html <p>Whew. Last run in Arcadia was a good one. Twins and I headed out from our hotel towards Santa Annita park and the high school. Hamstring was a bit tight but it went awa after mile. Stretched next to a chainlink fence bordering the golf course right across from Arcadia high, it is at this point I should add that it was 11:15pm. There was no one around and the golf course was just begging for it, thus after a hop skip and jump we were putting in miles on the green.The full moon helped but it was still too dark to see so you could tell there was a hill coming up but as to where it started was a mystery. Cue a race to the top of every hill. Never have I felt runner&#39;s high like I did that night. Upon hopping the fence again I nearly ran over a possum, and in case you were wondering they really do play dead. Poked him with a stick a couple times until he ran away into the bushes growling and probably cursing at me in whatever possum lagnuage is. Good times.</p> Sat, 08 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Apr 07, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-07-2017.html Fri, 07 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Apr 06, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-06-2017.html Pre-meet 66 and 65 Thu, 06 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Apr 05, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-05-2017.html Wed, 05 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Apr 04, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-04-2017.html Tue, 04 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Apr 03, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-03-2017.html Mon, 03 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 01, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-01-2017.html Sat, 01 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 31, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-31-2017.html Fri, 31 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Mar 30, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-30-2017.html <p>Twas a good one. Went out on Murdock and interrogated Gill for details on his Peru trip along with the dets on Sam + Gill. Related it to running and decided Gill is beginning his final lap and must kick it in now and finish through the line. Put a ring on it already. Now for the fun part. Went out to where Murdock intersects a road at the park by freedom and took a right because out and backs are just no fun. After a pleasant little run through some quant but rather rich neighborhoods we are faced with a decision. Turn left following a road and possibly risk going over or take a right and hop on trail and see where the trail will take us. The trail proved to be the best option and after a fence hop or two later we come to a lovely green field. Hop over a little fence near a stream and continue running, until two horses materialize out of nothing on top of a hill and they do not look pleased with us invading their field. Reminescent of movies with Native Americans appearing on horseback then seeing the intruder off. We proceed to scramble across said stream but it turns out to be a swamp. After making our way through some trees to try and escape from the horses who have now made their way down the hill we see a road and make our way towards that #salvation. Until Gill points out there are rather angry looking yaks in the pasture between us and the rhe road. One yak didn&#39;t like the way Thom looked at him or maybe just the way Thom looked idrk but nevertheless he charged the fence. We then book it through a backyard and return to civilization and then run back to Skyridge via Samis road and 1200 east. Also AK smh.</p> Thu, 30 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Mar 29, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-29-2017.html <p>Still feeling like I may get sick but less severe. 2 to play it safe</p> Wed, 29 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Mar 28, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-28-2017.html <p>Only 2 cause worried about getting sick and don&#39;t want to mess with UVU this weekend.</p> Tue, 28 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Mar 27, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-27-2017.html <p>Rainy Berry loop.</p> Mon, 27 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Mar 25, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-25-2017.html Sat, 25 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 24, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-24-2017.html Windy, rainy, and cold but hey now I know what acupuncture feels like so that's nice. Pre-meet: 74 and 73. Fri, 24 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Mar 23, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-23-2017.html Thu, 23 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Mar 22, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-22-2017.html <p>Ran down to the twins house to see if the calls had gotten here (they hadn&#39;t). Then ran down 300w then over to Lehi high. Lost Mike at 4 so it ended up being just Thom and I but it was a good run, except for the last 1.2. Legs began to feel tired and it just felt like that last little bit was being grinded out.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 22 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Mar 21, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-21-2017.html <p>I really wanted to do IM Flash today and it felt great to do it for a while for it quickly became appareant that 7 miles of hill would not rest happy with the legs. Thought of an alternate route that ended up working out great. Time flew by for 8 miles but after that it just dragged on for those last few. Legs felt a lot better than I expected which was a most welcome surprise. Soleous hurt a little today but no where near yesterdays level. Abs and hips.</p> Tue, 21 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Mar 20, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-20-2017.html <p>Tried something a little diferent today and brought two pairs of shoes. The freedoms for the 6 before speed and then zantes for whatever was left. Lower calves were hurting something fierce for the first 6 then when I put the zantes my whiny little calves turned into fully-grown cows ready to kill this speed. That&#39;s exactly what I did, 2-mile workout was 4x1000 @ 2-mile pace wasn&#39;t really sure about what pace I should actually hit. First one with Dalpal and hit a 3:06 and it hurt a lot more than I expected and got me realy concerned I wouldn&#39;t be able to keep it up. Went out a little faster next time and stuck with the Twins and Thom, it still hurt like someone was tenderizing my legs but ended up with a 3:01 for all the remaining sets. Had a euphoric cooldown in the wind and rain then abs and hips.</p> Mon, 20 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Mar 18, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-18-2017.html <p>Didn&#39;t get to run today, but saw Beauty and the Beast. Honestly not a worthwhile trade. Not sure how to go about getting mileage back.</p> Sat, 18 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 17, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-17-2017.html <p>FREEDOMS!!!!!</p> Fri, 17 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Mar 16, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-16-2017.html <p>My watch no longer syncs to my phone :/ haven&#39;t been able to figure out why.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 16 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Mar 15, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-15-2017.html Wed, 15 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Mar 14, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-14-2017.html Tue, 14 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Mar 13, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-13-2017.html Mon, 13 Mar 2017 06:00:00
