Second progressive tempo run of the week on the Alviso levee loop. This time 9 seconds slower overall but last 3.8 miles were 25 seconds faster. Last .8 miles covered in 6:56 pace and much more comfortably than Tuesday. Things are coming along nicely for Humboldt! 1:08:50 overall time.

Went over to do the Alviso loop and felt good from the get go so decided to do a progressive tempo run (each mile split faster than the previous). Not always easy to do when the fatigue starts to set in. Well guess what? I managed to pull it off. Splits for 8.8 mile loop were: 1@9:00, 2@8:17, 3@8:01, 4@7:35, 5@7:34, 6@7:31, 7@7:28, 8@7:20, last .8@7:07 mile pace. Last 2 miles the discomfort set in a bit and the mind took over. Light stretching, core and weight training afterwards. Overall pace for the 8.8 mile loop was 7:47.

14.0 mile out and back run on levees. Got warm the last few miles which made it a bit of a struggle. Mind over matter. A bit dehydrated at the finish. Legs still tired from long run Friday and walking all day yesterday at the car show!
You are getting in lots of long runs. You are going to be more than ready for your half up north!Bob Anderson 8/25/14 5:10 pm

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

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

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

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
Thanks Bob.Bill Dunn 2/22/13 3:31 pm reply to comment
Yesterday started off as any other day at work until I picked up a container of mail and got a bad twinge in my back. Couldn't reach down in front of me the rest of the day. The good news is this morning I was able to run 3 miles with no problems and today at work it has progressively gotten better. It just goes to show how easy it is to throw everything into disarray in a mere second. I think I got lucky on this occasion but the lesson is we can never be to careful!Bill Dunn 1/8/13 4:19 pm
I know this so well. One second everything is cool and the next...take it a little easy until it is 100%. This aging thing is always challenging...Bob Anderson 1/8/13 4:27 pm reply to comment
Ran the Moody Two Road Race this morning. This was a Bob Anderson/ Rich Stiller production and I must say it was a stellar event from top to bottom. Great course, scenic, fast and there was even a porta potty at the start!! Mile mark was easy to see, finish line was well managed. I'm ready for the 2nd Annual. Ran 11:49/5:54 pace for 3rd overall and a 87.04% age grading. What a way to finish the year. Thanks for making an old guy feel young again.Bill Dunn 12/29/12 10:53 am
Great run Bill!Richard Stiller 12/29/12 11:25 am reply to comment
