Did a mini Double Road Race workout this morning. Ran 2 miles from the gym back to the gym, recovered for 20 minutes in the gym and ran another 1 mile. As Double Road Racing grows, I can see these types of workouts becoming popular. Has anyone tried this?
I did a Double type workout before Pleasanton. 10k with 39 minute rest followed by a hard 5k. Confidence builder!Bill Dunn 4/4/13 2:12 pm
Very smart. I'm going to incorporate more runs like this with recovery in between and we'll see how it goes. Justin Wall 4/4/13 4:22 pm
I did a late breakfast today, took an hour recovery and then had lunch. The breakfast was pancakes and the lunch was a burrito.

Couple more hours and it's time for your next "workout". Justin Wall 4/4/13 4:29 pm
Justin, I did a modified Double Road Race trainer a few weeks ago--ran the 10K course, warming up at first, then moderately hard the rest of the way, then 10-15 min walk/drink break, then 10K course again pretty hard. The short version and the long version both have great value in prepping for this event.Bruce Gilbert 4/5/13 6:37 am

Lisa and I got in our 5 mile course this morning. I felt stronger than I have in a long time. Not sure why, but hopefully I can continue to build strength towards the Carlsbad 5000.
I think those hills are really helping you guys. You both ran well yesterday. Good job!!!!Bob Anderson 2/14/12 10:51 am
BTW, check out the photo of Owen in the Best Shot Challenge below....what a stride on that boy! His time of 4:40 for 1K at age 5 is like running under 7 minutes for the mile.Bob Anderson 2/14/12 10:53 am
LOVE that photo of Owen...he is catching some air! Great time too... WOW!Lisa Anderson-Wall 2/14/12 11:49 am

Got in 10.5 in the hills this morning. It was my longest run in a while. Looking forward to racing next weekend in the Love Run 5K in Pacific Grove. Haven't raced for several months so we'll see.
Good job...you are going to be ready to race 5k...Bob Anderson 2/3/12 10:34 pm

Changed it up today and played tennis instead of running. It's a little strange not running, but tennis definitely is a good workout.
That's a nice change of pace...but wasn't it cold?Bob Anderson 1/18/12 9:28 pm

Did 4.1 miles on the treadmill today. I only run on the treadmill when it's really cold, raining, or when I'm wanting to do some strength training. Today was one of those days. Does anyone do speed work on the treadmill? I've been mixing in fast quarter miles every other lap. I'm kind of liking it, or maybe it just breaks up the monotony of the treadmill? Probably the latter. Either way, i think it's working.

Got in 6. 4 this morning. The Olympic Marathon Trials inspired me to get off the couch. Way to go Meb, Hall and Abdi. LONDON GAMES!!

Got in 6.2 miles this morning. Mostly hills. Legs were burning pretty good. Beautiful morning but definitely chilly. Beany & gloves are an absolute must on cold mornings. I can't stand being cold on runs. Looking forward to the Olympic Trials (Marathon) this weekend and of course
You are getting in some good runs...the cold just makes it more challenging!!! Going to be some good racing in Houston this Saturday!!! and YES...GO NINERS!!!Bob Anderson 1/11/12 2:13 pm

Lisa and I got in our 5 mile loop this morning. It was nice but cold. Ran the first 3 miles slow and then ran 6:12 pace for the last 2 miles. I feel like I'm starting to get stronger. Still have a ways to go, but it's improving.
Great run this morning...even after you left me in the dust! xoxoLisa Anderson-Wall 1/9/12 11:36 am
Good job guys...you were cooking those last two miles. That sub 18 minute 5k is not far off...Bob Anderson 1/9/12 12:34 pm

Hope you're having a great day. I'm guessing you're on a birthday run. Looking forward to joining you in SF tomorrow. Can't wait and I hope the knee is improving!

After 3 months of not running, i've gotten back on the road. A couple 3 milers and then 5 today. I need some encouragement from the Fit Club.Justin Wall 12/29/12 11:25 am
It was three months? I know you were busy with the Double and the kids but...glad to hear you ate back out. Lets plan some weekend runs since I am not going to be racing every weekend in 2013....Bob Anderson 12/30/12 9:41 pm reply to comment

Good photo of you and Bobby McKee from yesterday. Bobby had been injuried for a few months but has come back strong. He was the first 55 plus guy running 1:29:29.Lisa Anderson-Wall 10/3/11 2:39 pm reply to comment
