Run hard!

I can't at all relate to the imperial system, so I have no idea how fast you run :zaru:
But I'll take the others' word that it's fast!

2/16/13 - got PODIUM????

Brazen Racing 1/2 marathon, #4 of the year, 13.24 miles, 1:36:34, 7:17/mile average pace, 111' elev gain.

And that, boys and girls, was good enuf for 1st place in my age group, out of about 21 people and 21st overall out of 398!!
Yeah, so what if I can't walk right now cuz my wussy puzzy hip flexor said sionara at about mile 11.5.
I guess 3 forced days off helped. And interestingly enough the Garmin said I burned 2,007 calories lugging my fat ass around for that hour and a half. Since the course was long the 'adjusted' half time is 1:35:24.

Ohhh yah, for Rikke and the other metric peeps - avg pace was about 4:30/km :twisted:

Well, never mind all that podium spot, first in age group and all that ... Is that bicycle shorts that you were running in ?? :D

Just kidding ! A 7.17 pace for half marathon is insanity. The hurting is beyond fathomable. Kudos.

2/18/13 - Forget me not

Tri bike, 39.24 miles, 2:22, 16.58mpg avg, 1,150' elev gain.
Boy oh boy are my legs tired and sorerer.
Around a couple reservoirs with a bud.
So about 100 different "things" happened this morn to get me on my bike, on that certain road at that certain time. I almost mtn biked cuz I couldn't find my road shoes, almost took the fixie out, almost went a different direction, etc etc. So on that road, I look ahead and there is my bud waiting for me. DUHHHH we had made plans to ride last week, I completely forgot about it and by some total fluke, I ended up being right where i was supposed to be at the right time too...

And thanks for all the kudos! it IS my darn groin again, not hip flexor. I left a good minute+ out there cuz I had to slow down.

2/23/13 - Too little, not late

Tri bike, 53.12 miles, 3:13, 16.52mph avg, 2,800' elev gain.
North - Mt Eden & Pierce then south & both IBM hills.
The groin doesn't really bug on the bike, but the legs, 2 weeks later, still don't feel recovered from that 1/2. I'm happy to have held the same mph average as last week with a dozen more miles, lots of headwinds and 1,700' more pedaling UP. :)

I've been doing some 1.5 - 2 mile rides around the neighborhood on my mtn bike each day, dragging along the pooch to give him some real exercise. We're doing intervals and according to the Garmin, he's ran at 15.4mph. And he's gained ~7lbs in a little less than a month!

Lucky pooch! Good food, good exercise, and I bet he doesn't miss any sleep either. The best all the world has to offer to a dog!

2/24/13 - Can you see the real me-eee, copper 'copter??

Mtn bike, 20.25 miles, 2:48, 2,100' elev gain.
Full moon ride in Quicksilver park. Took the 26yr old roomie from Michigan. He's a big time trials rider - balancing the bike on big rocks and hopping from one big rock or object to another. Not exactly a cardio fiend. I not only showed him all the parks epic singletrack, we got lost and wound up doing more singletrack than anticipated.

THEN - 3/4 of the way thru I noticed the Chopper closing in on us so we turned off our lights, hid under a big tree til he swooped by and motored away. But to be safe we did the rest of the ride with no lights on. Not a real big deal since the moon was out but lots of the trail is hidden from the moonlight reaching it by full tree growth - so it was sketchy, and awesome!

I'm not entirely sure I broke a sweat, I looked at roomie after we got home, his tshirt was soaked!!! :twisted:

That hop, skip and a jump style of riding is actually pretty darn cool.

So you guys got a little taste of fugitivehood last night eh? Are they catching up to you for all your past chococides? Don't they know you're a changed man (again!)?

2/26/13 - How's it Hangin?

Spin bike, 50:00 with 30:00 of max intensity, max rpm, increasing resistance intervals, 30x - 40secs on/20secs EZ

Static hanging, about 46:00 of effort, sets started at :30 on :30 off, experimented with less hang/more resting, took a few additional minute or two breaks. Total hang time was just over 11:00, which seems wholly pathetic. I can post a pic of my scribble sheet if need be. I'm probably around 185lbs dressed and ready to hang. Oh yeah, I was supersetting a good portion of those sets with 10 ATG squats, many with a 10lb medicine ball.

Then a bunch of shoulder work, bridging, foam rolling and stretching.

2/27/13 - Who let the quads out

Spin bike/plank supersets, 10x (low rpm/hard effort climbing intervals + 2:00 plank) 30secs between exercises. 1:25 total.
They put a couple spin bike out in the gym, instead of all in the aerobics room where you can't use them if there's a class going on. Effing brilliant on their part, plus I get to watch all the other idiots in there. Tres amusing.

Then 20:00 in the sauna, core/Hindu squat supersets:
20 Vups-50 squats
20 leg pump hip thrusters-50 squats
20 Vups-25 squats
20 leg pump-25 squats

Bunch of stretching and isometric shoulder work while cooling off.

No max hang time again Mike. I thought one of the categories was same as plank or pullup challenge - max hang time in 1 hour. I didn't see it listed...did I waste all that freakin time and effort?

Oh and funny...I decided on my post title BEFORE seeing this...talk about quadzilla:

Not if you got a good workout. ;) How's your bridge? Well be doing those for the March Challenge, and (at the moment) I have time to organize the thread for it myself, unlike the last few times.

So the bridge, gym. bridge is with head off the ground to stress the neck muscles? I've not been raising my head when doing my bridges, but there's no way in .......that my jacked up neck will ever again attempt a wrestler's bridge.

3/02/13 - This ain't how they do it

Tri bike, 50.66 miles, 3:08, 16.17mph avg, 3,120' elev gain
So I went out and did Stage 6 of the upcoming Tour of California - the individual Time Trial. This is the course: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Notice the wee bit of climbing at the very end. Metcalf Road. What a mother.
The course took me 1:12 for an average speed of 16.56mph. I'm guess the pro's, with their PED's, will do it a bit quickerer.

3/05/13 - Nothing or all

Spin bike, 30:00 with 15 very high rpm, increasing resistance intervals, 40secs on/20ses EZ.

Shoulder work, stretching and foam rolling.

Treadmill run, 3.25miles ~28:00. The groin seems to be OK!
Then sauna, 30:00 with 4 sets of 25 Vups or leg pumps+50 hindu squats.

Welp, I made it 2 months and 27 days thru the winter, then I got sick. Just a basic PITA cold but combine that with the busy-ness at work and I missed some days so I went overboard today. I need my blanky and a nap.

What the F mods, I posted my post-race report and it vanished?? Maybe I said a naughty word or something. Well here it is, sorta, from memory:

3/17/13 - When 220 = 8,000

St. Patty's Day half marathon race, 13.15 miles, 1:38, 7:28/mile avg pace.
This was a pretty flat course, only 220' elev gain, but hells bells those tiny little uphills later on in the race were beyond brutally painful. I guess the 51 miles on the bike the day before was not the bestest tapering idea after all. ; )
Umm...only 2nd in my age group this time. :twisted: :twisted:

The only mod who's been on today since about 5:15 pm EST is me, Phil (I've been checking new posts periodically throughout the day as I usually do), and I didn't delete any of your posts (nor see any from today for that matter). Sounds to me like you may have had some teknikal diffikulties.

Good job on the race, and the 51 mile ride the day before (you maniac :P). :)

That's odd. I actually remember seeing that post before.

Btw, nice race. You're the fastest distance runner on the forum... for now.

That is some supremely funny chit Ranger!

3/24/13 - Check out my mighty fine Nine!

Tri bike - 42.51 miles, 2:57, 14.41mph avg. and oh yeah, 4,240' elev gain.
First real workout since the 1/2 marathon, pressed for time so I headed to the IBM hills for hill repeats.
9 repeats x ~1.5 miles long each climb. #1&2-1st gear easy, #3&4-2nd gear/harder effort, #5&6-much harder gear+standing the whole way, #7-9-1st gear again, progressively harder to balls out at the last climb efforts.

And if that Nine aint enough for all ya'll, ck out my newest early Xmas present:

Nice looking piece. Why does it say "Springfield Armory U.S.A."
and also "Made in Croatia"?

I believe it is a different firearm in Europe, Springfield Armory licensed it and it is selling it under their name in North America. The original name was the HS2000

Ditto on the nice race Phil!

But I must've heard you calling... I'll put this down as my re-introductory post. I don't have enough hours in the day to post and log any more; but it being Easter weekend I actually do have some time and I thought I'd catch up with whatever you guys had been doing and maybe let you know I haven't burpeed myself to death or anything.

I've taken to running (work convinced me to sign up to a half marathon in May) so I will be having that distance running crown of yours soon Phil!

Don't worry, I do still remember how much you love having your cage rattled! And I will start a log which I will TRY and update whenever I have time to keep you all posted.

T-M-Motley Farking - D!!! You still exist, woooo hoooo!!

I know what it means to be too busy to post, hell, I'm too busy to even work out properly, as evidenced by my wayyy too few workouts/posts lately.

As I told Ranger, to put "fast" and "distance runner" and "ME" into one sentence is pretty much a joke. My PR for the 1/2 marathon was 1:33, about a 7:06/mile pace. I've always wanted to go sub 1:30, I figure that's respectable for a heavy basturd....but that's 6:52/mile average pace. I'd need to hit Lance up for some PED's to get to that speed.

If you do get to those speeds/times, I only hope you suffer like a big dog during and a week after...like me. :)
