Easy 3 mile run. Achilles feels much better this morning.
Monday, January 26th, 2015
Walked 3 miles, did ab and weight workout. Right achilles flared up after the 5k Saturday and need to let it settle back down before running again.

2 mile warmup plus strides. 5k on the track at 21:38/6:57 pace. 1 mile cooldown.
Way to go Bill. Good time. Your training is paying off. Bob Anderson 1/26/15 9:00 am
Thanks Bob. Seems rather pedestrian compared to the old days but I'm quite happy these years with just running for the shear joy of it.Bill Dunn 1/26/15 10:36 am

3.0 mile tempo run. Strong finish. Just back from 10 days training at altitude in Byers, Co. 5,300 feet. One really cold run at 17* (frozen facial hair), other than that just some cold wind. Definitely will make you tough.
Isn't Byers considered a running mecca for world class runners? ;-)Richard Stiller 1/22/15 7:29 am
Maybe I'll make it one Rich!Bill Dunn 1/22/15 8:51 am
Shorter tried, gave up and moved to a Boulder. Best of luck though.Richard Stiller 1/22/15 3:36 pm

Once again did the 10 mile out and back on the Guadalupe River Trail. 20 seconds faster going out than Monday but 10 seconds slower coming back. Wanted to get under 1:21:00 but missed it this time by 15 seconds. Still a strong effort.

10 miles on the Guadalupe River Trail. Out@42:02/8:24 pace, back@39:23/7:52.5 pace. Overall time 1:21:25/8:08.5 pace. Getting stronger every time I run this route. Conditions today were pretty good.

Wow! What an amazing experience I had in Colorado the last 10 days. Trained in Byers at 5300' on a dirt road out in the farmlands east of Denver. Had the place all to myself except for a few sheep, horses, cows and even llamas. Rolling course. I felt better than I thought I would the very first day and by the end was cranking out some quick workouts. Went up to my Brother's in Buena Vista( 8000') and did one run on flat roads and felt O.K. but didn't push. Great experience that I hope to do more often.Bill Dunn 9/15/14 9:00 pm reply to comment
In case anybody wonders where have been I am altitude training in Colorado at 5,300 feet. First day here did 10k in 52 minutes and by yesterday got the same course down to just over 49 and felt pretty good doing it. May have to run the San Juan Bautista double this next weekend. Be home tomorrow. Hill repeats 3 days ago did kick my ass!!!!Bill Dunn 9/14/14 4:48 pm
You have to run San Juan to see how the altitude training helped. Did you get my message. Welcome back to the bay area.Bob Anderson 9/15/14 8:33 am reply to comment
Monday mornings are my 3 mile walk mornings. How enjoyable it is just to stroll along and observe things as opposed to pushing one's self on a run. I love to run and train but my recovery walk on Monday's has become a much appreciated ritual.Bill Dunn 8/11/14 12:54 pm reply to comment
Good job today by everyone who ran the 2nd San Jose Double Road Race. First time I got to see the participants instead of being one. So many smiles on all the sunny faces. Hope all of you had a great time. See you in Pacific Grove in May!Bill Dunn 2/22/14 1:40 pm reply to comment
Up early to go work at the Double Road Race in San Jose. Yes all you 60 men, I'm only working today. Have a great time everybody. The weather is going to be perfect.Bill Dunn 2/22/14 4:54 am
See you out there Bill. Thanks so much for helping us out. Going to be a good Double! and Ujena 5k Mardi Gras Run and Kids Cup Mile!Bob Anderson 2/22/14 5:03 am reply to comment
I forgot to mention that Peter Mullin, at the young age of 63, came in second overall in the ChocoLoco 5k in a fantastic time of 17:58. Great job once again Peter.Bill Dunn 1/25/14 4:35 pm
Thanks Bill! Working on keeping my 2014 AG over 90 - need to build up a buffer before the summer races here in Houston! Peter Mullin 1/25/14 8:13 pm
Bill, I think I see your next career. PR Man for 60 plus runners. Gets some business cads printed up ;-)Richard Stiller 1/26/14 1:00 pm
I meant cards but PR types are cads...Richard Stiller 1/26/14 1:01 pm reply to comment
We had two Ujena Fit Club members win races outright this morning. David Nevitt won the Groovy Great Eight 8k race in a time of 30:24. Barry Sackett ran the University of Okoboji Winter Games 10k in a time of 38:44. Congratulations to both on a job well done.Bill Dunn 1/25/14 4:31 pm reply to comment
JoAnn and I walked the San Jose Double Course this afternoon. Pretty fast looking overall but does have a challenge each lap of a slight incline. Otherwise pretty flat. Nice to know what to expect beforehand!!Bill Dunn 8/11/13 8:15 pm
Thanks Bill for some input...it's noted :-)

The final standings for the 2013 Short Course Road Racing Championships ( PAUSATF) were posted this afternoon and I ended up being 2nd place overall in the 60-69 division. That's 1 place better than I did last year. Was alot of fun. Glad I was able to stay healthy. Races are 1 mile to 10k. That gives me comped entry to this series of races again next year!!Bill Dunn 7/25/13 4:53 pm
Congrats Bill...who was first place?Bob Anderson 7/26/13 10:09 am
My friend Don Porteous. I beat him once this year but he beat me 3 times. He is really good at the short races but won't race me at the longer stuff.Bill Dunn 7/26/13 11:41 am reply to comment
Colleen DeReuck, Libby James and Christine Kennedy at Denver Double Road Race this Sunday. The Double Victory Cup will be a tough one to call !!!!Bill Dunn 7/19/13 2:50 pm
It is going to be a real race to see who is going to win the Double Victory Club...best age-graded time...good luck to all.Bob Anderson 7/21/13 4:37 am reply to comment

Just got back from a great week of camping down Santa Barbara way. Lots of running with hills, hiking and generally enjoying life.Bill Dunn 3/23/13 9:29 pm
I love "camping out" at the Fess Parker Double Tree Resort in Santa Barbara. It's tough but someone has to do it.Richard Stiller 3/24/13 7:40 am reply to comment
As a very frequent runner of the South Bay Levee System I see alot of flying objects, mostly in the form of birds such as Egrets, Blue Herons. Red Tail Hawks, Pelicans, Kites among others. Today was a bit different in a big way due to the takeoff of 4 F-22's as I was circling the backside of the runway. Very loud, fast and powerful!Bill Dunn 2/23/13 7:40 pm reply to comment
Bob, I don't see my name on the Double Road Race Lists on the Best Performances page.Bill Dunn 2/21/13 5:57 pm
I think you listed it as two races. It will show up if you combine the time and list it as the Double. You are the world record holder for 65-69...congrats!!!Bob Anderson 2/21/13 6:46 pm
You changed it to one race result shortly after I posted it as two. It is now in my race results as one race. 1:03:42Bill Dunn 2/22/13 7:49 am
That took care of it...Bob Anderson 2/22/13 11:03 am
