hot friday

friday

the road to new york

A slow and easy 3 miler yesterday just to loosen up the legs on hot muggy afternoon.  Still hot and muggy, hopefully it gets a little more comfortable at 7, race time at tonight’s 5k.  Oh well, Happy Friday!  

friday, whew

Continued the recovery runs with a slow easy 9 miler in the park and around the neighborhood.  The body was still sore from Wednesday’s track workout, loosened up quite a bit by the second half of the run.  The way I was feeling, any thought of doing a hard workout today went out the window.  Will try a track workout tomorrow, playing it by ear.  

Feeling good after a swig of seltzer water and a shower, now onto to a restful Friday evening in with a movie and pizza, ahhh.

a friday state of mind

Thought about a track workout this afternoon, ran down to the local Buffalo State college track, apparently it closes early on Fridays, good thing, I was sore and tired, and probably would have had a bad workout.  Ran back home through the grounds of the adjacent luxury hotel that was converted recently from an insane asylum housed in a magnificent H H Richardson designed structure.  Really looking forward to doing some speed intervals, my college days beckon.  I’ll try again tomorrow, should be more rested and the track will be open.  Now I’m about to have some Pierogies and beer. Happy Friday friends!

on the road to new york

The best run I’ve had in a number of days, a joyful 10 miler in the park, the weather cooler and drier today, felt more rested, and the first run with my son since last winter.  Was great to be back on the roads with him.  Now heading out to dinner, ready to feast.  A wonderful run with your child, great dinner, the weekend…what more can you ask for?  Happy Friday everyone!

Feeling the miles of the past week, went out for a nice 5 mile run around the neighborhood.  No need to push it, an enjoyable recovery run on a cool fall evening.  Stayed mostly on trails.  Kicking back on a Friday night, will go for a tempo run tomorrow.  Happy weekend!

The running highlight of the day was sprinting back home several blocks with a bag of takeout beef souvlaki wrap in my hand to beat a fast approaching thunderstorm, stepping through the door just seconds before the deluge.  Now sitting, enjoying the sandwich, the view of the wet outdoors outside the window.  The wrap was worth the risk.  Happy Friday everyone!

we’ve reached friday

2 days away from Sunday’s half, 4 miles this afternoon around the neighborhood, in cool fall-like weather, continuing the taper week, trying to be mindful in a process – tapering for a race – than can get boring and repetitive.  The run felt nice and relaxing, knowing it was mostly to keep the legs loose and the mind engaged as we get closer.  Like this tapering run, can’t make this post too long…a good Friday to you.
