AM: Two easy miles around the school.

PM: Moderately hard run.9.42 miles in 60 minutes plus warm-up and cool-down. I'll call this marathon pace to fast marathon pace. Or that's what I'd call it if I ran marathons.

PPM: One mile walk with Ann. I'm dragging! Two workouts in three days is too many in my old age. One every three or four days is plenty. Or once a week.

Hectic 24 hours. Mom came to visit from Florida and we had to admit her to the hospital on Tuesday. She's going to be ok though.

Squeezed in an easy 8 with some striders and core stuff.

Andy had his first baseball game this afternoon. 2 for 2 with 2 triples at the plate and made a nice put out at 1st base. He's excited. I fear for his running potential though. Walking to the car he said he'd rather hit singles because running from home to third base without stopping is really tiring.

Today I did my treadmill fartlek for 60 minutes after warming up. Spent 24 minutes at six minute pace down to 5:40 pace in four minute chunks.

This workout used to be hard. These days I'm finishing it with plenty left in the tank.

18.25 miles plus some fast striders at Liberty Park.

As usual on a warm Sunday, we had hippies in the drum circle, lots of tension between Polynesians and Mexicans with their dueling car stereos and pit bulls that was keeping the cops on mountain bikes busy. Fights over scarce parking spaces. That and the homeless overflow from Pioneer Park and you have lots to watch and keep your mind occupied.

I'm starting to feel pretty fit. Actually, I'm feeling faster and stronger than I have in years. Too bad I don't have a weekend until June where I can fit a race in. Probably good in the long run though.
