Highlander. Details to follow?

Saturday Oct 4, 2008 #

slept:7.25 (rest day)

I didn't run during practice this morning, since I thought I had to run to pick up my car from the shop, and the Highlander is tomorrow.

As it turned out, I had to give Wade a ride home, so I was able to rope him into driving Chelsea's car home for me. That allowed me to take the day off.

I wanted to get out for a round of golf, but there was way too much to do around the house.

Finally got around to posting my Sprint races from last Friday.

Running 46:00 intensity: (12:00 @2) + (28:00 @4) + (6:00 @5) 6.4 mi (7:11 / mi)

Ran around during the Penfield/Irondequoit invitational at Harris Whalen park. Due to illness and yesterday's turnout, we only had 5 in the varsity boys race. Kenny and Nate ran pretty well, and Alex passed just enough runners for us to slip by Victor by 2 points for 5th place, and hardware for the second week in a row.

This is the rough sketch of my typical route during each race.

In addition to the varsity boys, I also hustled around for the varsity girls race, the JV race (in which the girls started just one minute after the boys), and the "Varsity C" race which consisted of the runners that blew off yesterday's practice (only 19 of 39 kids were there, and only about 3 or 4 had provided warning). It was not fun for me, I hope we don't have to do it again.

Running 33:00 [2] 4.0 mi (8:15 / mi)

Ran at Mendon East. Did a bit of warm-up, then ran the first 2 miles of the XC course with the team, then I took off to catch the second half of Zach's soccer game, since it was at the nearby Calkins Rd school.

Got to Z's game, and it must have been early 3Q by the time I found the field, tucked way in the back corner of the huge Pittsford piece of real estate the new school sits upon. I hope the district has owned that property for many years - it seems it would be quite expensive now (but I guess that district can afford to $pend on their school properties).

Z was not in the game, so I watched a bit, then went for another jog (7-8 minutes) and got back as the 4th quarter was underway. Zach was still not in, even though they certainly had fewer than 22 players. I think the coach eventually saw me on the sideline, and put Zach in, but there was only 30 seconds left. Not sure why Z didn't play at least 2 quarters; he certainly doesn't suck.

Running 24:00 [2] 3.0 mi (8:00 / mi)

Ran around a bit during practice at Webster Park. Had to go back out while the kids were stretching to make it a legitimate day of running.

The kids did the course again, like Monday, but this time at I pace instead of T pace and with 4 minutes recovery (5 for < Tommy) instead of 1 minute.

Tuesday Sep 30, 2008 #

Running 48:00 [2] 6.0 mi (8:00 / mi)
slept:6.5 weight:162.5lbs

Gave the kids a head start, then set out for the Willink Woods. Just about caught AJ and Geoff, who were walking (and shortcutted on the way back, contrary to Coach Klehr's specific instructions - I suspect they also took the shortcut on the way there, as I saw a couple of sets of footprints on the hill and in the grass near the hotel).

Did a couple of laps of the woods, intermixed with some running around Willink, then went back, much of the way with Eric, Elliot and Thunder.

Running 12:00 [2] 1.33 mi (9:00 / mi)
slept:7.5 (rest day)

Doesn't count as a running day, since it was only 12 minutes during practice at Webster Park. The team did the XC course at tempo pace, with one-minute breaks at the mile and 2-mile, to avoid the tendency to slow down too much as the workout progresses. Almost everyone hit their times within an error tolerance. Most (but not all) of those that struggled have less of a fitness base and probably need more time to recover from a big effort like McQuaid.
