Things felt smooth and relaxed. Tue, 08 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Aug 07, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-07-2017.html 0 today cause mouth is hurting real bad. It's a little bit crazy but it's all figured out. Running tomorrow at camp, always wanted to run high on pain meds lol Mon, 07 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Aug 05, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-05-2017.html <p>Woke up at 5:10 to run the 10 mile loop from the final day of camp with Gill, Collin and Ryan. If you&#39;re obersvant you&#39;ll notice I ran 12 tho. It was a crazy loop and at times I was skeptical but I chastised myself to be faithtul in Gill&#39;s creative loop planning. Good bit of downhill with a 5:56 in there, but my legs had felt tired at mile 2 and once the uphill began that tiredness hit me smack in the everywhere. Got a wee bit lost and took a wrong turn that added +300ish feet and 2 miles. Ahh good times, surprisingly last two miles were sub-7 miracles do happen. Got Denny&#39;s afterwards that was nice. No abs cause screw that lol</p> Sat, 05 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Aug 04, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-04-2017.html <p>5 with Gill then went to pick up Collin and I helped him with the last 400 of his hill workout and ouch that hurt. Said hi to Mama Hinckley and that was great Chewy was also great &lt;3.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 04 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Aug 03, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-03-2017.html <p>Mostly recovery except Big-T was challenging me during mile 6 and we couldn&#39;t have that lol</p> Thu, 03 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Aug 02, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-02-2017.html <p>&quot;Thirst trumps self-respect&quot; quote of the run</p> Wed, 02 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Aug 01, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-01-2017.html Tue, 01 Aug 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 31, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-31-2017.html Mon, 31 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sun, Jul 30, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-30-2017.html Sun, 30 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 25, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-25-2017.html I'm going to have to do 11 every day plus 15 on Saturday. Here's hoping my legs hold out. 7:15 Tue, 25 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 24, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-24-2017.html Went to skyridge practice and decided I'd do the workout with them. And by them it was pretty just Dallin. Did my best to pace things but might have messed up a little bit on the last 800 hehe. Was surprised with how easily I did all of it but I have a lot of miles this week so no more intense miles for me. Mon, 24 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 22, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-22-2017.html Originally going to be 14 with Mike but my calves are so freaking tight from yesterday and this high mileage week. Also got hit by a pretty bad side ache at a little over 5 out but other than just cruised with Mike. Ran through the private neighborhood from last Sat and was uninterrupted so suck it lady. 7:10 avg Sat, 22 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 21, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-21-2017.html <p>Not really sure what happened or why it happened but today&#39;s run went alright. I started out and I just felt great, kept going and by mile 4 I was sub-6 then stayed around 5:45 for the rest of the run. I have a new 10k PR now so that&#39;s kinda neat.&nbsp;Twas a good one, though I slacked on abs cause they were tired. Whoops lol 5:54 avg</p> Fri, 21 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 20, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-20-2017.html Didn't really get my legs moving until 4 miles in on account of my calves being rather tight. Once they did get warmed up things got smooth easily held 6:10 for the rest of the run until I met up with the guys for some easier grass miles. Also forgot to unpause my watch so I missed 1.5 of it :/ Thu, 20 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 19, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-19-2017.html 7 on the treadmill at 1am. 2.2 from running around playing games and getting chased by the fuzz. Great times. Wed, 19 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 18, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-18-2017.html 4.5 to skyridge then 5 with the guys up there which was real nice. On my 4.5 back home I realized it had been three hours since I last ate anything and it was hurting pretty bad; hurt bad enough that a little old lady looked up from her book and got be a glass of apple juice. Never has a glass of apple juice tasted that good. 7:04 avg for all of it Tue, 18 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 17, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-17-2017.html Had some company for this run and that was a relief. Twins and Col(l)ins. Paced Collin's workout which was 2x10min tempo with 2 mins rest. I did my best to keep things fast on the first one but I took a pitstop during rest and was playing catch up for the second one. Finished up to 8. 7:03 avg for all 8 Mon, 17 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sun, Jul 16, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-16-2017.html Early 8 before twins farewell 7:28 avg Sun, 16 Jul 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 15, 2017 http://Parker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-15-2017.html <p>SOOOOO todays blog is going to contain a rant. It&#39;s going to be a pretty rude rant. Be advised lol. Started out on the lakeshore trail cause it&#39; my favorite and wanted to see how far out into Saratoga I could get. Thing is to get there you have to run through a lovely private community that has nice trees that provide nice shde and cause they rich and don&#39;t care they always got sprinklers going at 11:30. It&#39;s real nice. However, some prude reports me to the neighborhood watch(see below for long rant and explanation). At about 5 from my house I left the private community and exited out to Redwood Rd and the little path on the side of it is a whole bunch of rolling hills and they were never bigger than 10 ft but there was so many it added to my rage from earlier. Ended up with a couple 6:30s for no good reason. 6:50 avg for all 12</p> <p>begin rant: ok. so during mile 4 a little after entering the private community some suburban drives by me real slow and i look over at the person driving and this lady wearing sunglasses is giving me a glare of disapproval so strong i felt it through those momma sunglasses. She then drives off and parks at a little park about .05 up from me and gets out and makes a big show of getting out her phone and dialing something. Then gets back in her car and proceeds to follow me for .2 until a truck rolls up and some dude gets out and yells for me to come over to him. I was getting real upset now so i ran over to him asking what the big deal is and he asks me why i think it&#39;s acceptable for me to talk to woman like that. first off: whaaaaaa??? i hadnt said a word, at most i made a few confused glances her way. &nbsp;i ask him what he is talking about and he gets heated yelling at me to be respectful and to put some clothes on because i looked like a &quot;whore from fresh across the border&quot;(im not even mexican you ignorant turd). at this point things click. dumb prudent suburban mormon mom over there doesn&#39;t like me running around in shorts in her precious community&nbsp;and this racist dude has some superiority complex cause he&#39;s a member of the dumb neighborhood watch (it was on his truck lol). then this lady made up me saying rude and innappropiate things to her cause she doesn&#39;t like me avoiding heat stroke. i really wanted to speak my mind and say some things but instead just kept running at a pretty fast pace cause i wanted no more of those two. well racist bigot back there calls the cops citing an insubordinate youth making innappropriate advances on a woman. what the hell. sure enough a cop drives up when im at 4.8 and stops me asking me what i was doing. maybe i was feeling smart but i simply replied i was running before those two harrassed me. he hears out both sides but heres the fun part. truck guy makes a comment about me likely being an illegal and the prudent thot says i shouldnt be allowed to commit public indecency running around like a stripper. cop then turns to both of them and tells the lady that i am perfectly in the right to dress like that and he tells the guy that abusing the cops with a false report can be a crime. he then advises both of them that rude remarks are harrassment and that they should both keep those things quiet. after those two donkeys&nbsp;drive off giving me dirty looks he turns to me saying i should&nbsp;&quot;learn to hold my smartass tongue&quot; but to be on my way. let me run in peace dammit :end rant&nbsp;</p> Sat, 15 Jul 2017 06:00:00
