Thursday, 01/20/11 Harper Lake/Davidson Mesa

Ran from the house over to Jeremy's office to get some heel risers to help with my achilles issue I have been dealing with since last April (in addition to backing off the hill running for a bit and wearing a night splint).  From Jeremy's office, ran S. Bldr Rd. West, to Via Appia, then over to Harper Lake, a loop around Davidson Mesa and then back.  Went a slow and easyish "rehab pace", not to mention the poor footing on the snow and ice kept things mellow.  Maintained an average HR of 146 and the achilles felt good, not at all taxed.  I actually somewhat enjoyed this run, but I think that was in part due to the fresh snow and the good podcasts on the mp3 player.

~8 miles
1:04 (or 64 as GZ would say)

  2. Hey Jim, I actually listen to a lot of podcasts. Adam Carolla is a favorite, This American Life, Car Guys, Competitors, Endurance Planet (Hang Nine Podcast if he would ever record a new one.... ;)). Occasionally I listen to music, but I find that my pace can fluctuate all over the place when the tempo of a song varies and I feel a bit out of touch with my surroundings. Podcasts are great, as I like keeping it low volume and can keep my mind occupied (when I want it artificially occupied). Most often though, I just like the sounds of the trail.
