Off. Bike ride and pull ups.
Nice hilly run. My legs felt great. I ran from Oakwood Valley trail gate up to Alta, to Miwok and down Old Springs. I passed the Parking lot and took the narrow trail to the left and finished by the Oakwood Valley trail. I did not time this run but it was a fast effort. Short bike ride.
Off. Very tired. Long working day.
Same course as Monday but on reverse. I was feeling tired before this run but I decided to test my legs.The hardest part is the section after the 1.3 miles Old Spring trail. Just after you get off Old Spring, there is a nice climb, a very steep half mile hill. It was brutal but I managed to climb it well and even passed a cyclist almost on top of the hill. Fastest time so far in this route, 40:50.
Back to the bike path. I created my usual 3:50 average loop around this grass field. I did the loop ten times. The fastest was 3:40 and slowest, 3:50. I did a few pull ups and finish my run by the Starbucks. 37 minutes.
Nice run from the Oakwood Valley trail to the Ten Beach and back. My legs felt good after a long working day. I am having a very sore right shoulder for some unknown reason. But it did not disturb my run. I rode my bike to the Oakwood Valley trail. 34 minutes and 45 seconds.

Bike ride plus upper body weights.
Short run from home to the bike path and back after a bike ride. Very hot weather. Good pace. Upper body weights. 47:48.
I rode my bike to the bike path. Nice short run. I ran three times a loop around the soccer fields.(11:28; 11:04; 10:54) 33:32. I started and finished my run with pull ups.
Another short run on the bike path. I ran the usual route out and back. I was feeling heavy and slow. I need to stretch more. Short bike ride.
Good easy run around the soccer fields. I kept easy and short. Very tired legs maybe due to the bike rides. I did 10 x short down hill, fast and controlled. 30 minutes.
Very hot day. I rode my bike down to the bike path. Somehow I changed my mind. My legs were feeling tired. So I decided to do a few pull ups, actually way too many. Then I left home. But on my way back home I stopped by the local coffee shop and have an ice mocha. After that I returned to the soccer field's area where I did my pull ups, and did my daily run. It seems like I need a little more rest before my run. I ran a hilly loop twice around the soccer fields, including a long set of steps and some steep short hills. 31:32.
Very short run from Oakwood Valley trail to the beach. I did some pick ups on the sand. My legs were feeling a little tired. Bike ride.

Short run around the soccer fields. One short and another long hilly loop. My legs felt good after a day off.
Nice run. I ran 19 x a loop of approx.3:45. My legs felt good. 59:59. Finally an almost one hour run. Gee, this used to be my daily runs a couple years ago. Hope to get back in that routine. But for now I am happy to do whatever I can get.
I was not planning to run but eventually I changed my mind. I did a very short run from the bike path back home. Only 20 minutes.
I rode my bike down to the bike path. I ran 11 times around two soccer fields, approx. 3 minutes loops. Nice soft surface. My legs felt good. I started with a few pull ups.30:34.

Another very short run. I have been working long hours and my legs were dead tired. I did 10 x strides across the soccer field.
