Time to run

MyHowl - June 21 > 27


I fell down on my run today... bruised and scabbed. Since my brain injury, I fall often.


I doubt most people really know much about my guy, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and I have not heard it articulated by anyone better than this young man. Don't hate the messenger, just do yourself a service and watch 2 minutes of this video (and I bet that you will stay tuned through the 10). Do it!

I have really backed off running and started riding my bike. This is good for multiple reasons but I hope my tender foot responds to the break favorably. Also, it is hot as balls in south Florida right now - 95 
with matching humidity is the current norm. I run so much better in the heat and desert temps of Colorado summers. Believe it or not, Denver summers are a lot hotter than SoFla's with temps routinely reaching 100 plus degrees. The difference is the humidity. It is the worst. I'd rather run up and down 10,000 foot mountains than run into the wind and humidity here. I know I sound like a pussy because I constantly whine about the weather here, but I do not apologize. Just feel the pain. I should just get off my ass and go run a shorty.

And then there is I Dream of Jeannie - my boyhood crush!


Last week was good and bad. The bad, an overuse injury to my right foot. The good, I got back on my bike and logged over 100 mile cycling last week. Sometimes its nice to turn a setback into a step forward.

Overflow crowd--biggest for any candidate yet this year--greets @BernieSanders in Denver. Remind me why he can't win?


Although the mainstream media is still minimizing the 'Bernie Bump' - it is becoming clear that the American public is beginning to notice and support this outstanding American politician and more importantly, patriot. Clearly, people are excited and his events are by far, the best attended. The upcoming debates will be fantastic theater.

Training this week: Run 28.72 mi - bike 64.39 (1 rest day) 

Sat Bike - 21.0 mi - 1:06:00 19.09 avg mph 
Rode the fixie to Sunrise and home... still feeling beat up from my fall this week. I miss running.
Fri Bike - 23.27 mi - 1:15:34 - 18.48 avg mph - 120 avg hrI managed a decent ride on the fixie today. I have a lot of muscle soreness and multiple scabs on my knees and elbows.
Rest - I am very sore and scabbed too.

Wed Run - 1:00:54 - -6.7 mi - 9:05 pace - 118 avg hr
I fell down again. The first 3 miles were quick in about 22 minutes; I tried to cross the street and tripped on a rubber fan belt or something and fell head first into the street. I smashed my knees and got considerable road rash on my arms and legs. I walk/ran home at around a 10:00 pace. :-(

Tues AM Run -1:03:17 - 8.41 mi - 7:31 pace - 140 avg hr

Good run today - no foot pain to speak of. The bike days are paying off. I need to be careful and continue alternating cycling into my regimen.

Mon Bike - 20.12 mi 19.3 mph pace 

I ran yesterday with only a small amount of foot pain. I may run later, but either way, I thought that a short ride on my fixed gear would be nice.

Sun Run - 8.5 mi - 8:33 pace - 132 avg hr

Because of my ongoing foot injury, I decided to hit the trail today. I managed 700' of vertical at the trash heap. The foot felt a little bit better and for the first 4 miles I didn't notice it. It did speak up later in the run, but it was tolerable. I should continue to mix I the bike and run less and when I do, easier. 

Last week: Run 41.36 mi - Bike 123.28 (0 rest day) last month 281.53 mi last year 2,670.88 mi 


bike yr: 207.95 mi
