    Good to see your back on the trails! Hope the foot is feeling healthy! Are you rehabbing it?

    • cruzin_gramps


      Hi Spurgeon. Thanks for the shout. The steroid injection helped significantly. Daily PT and changing the mechanics... stride & strike to keep it strong and prevent injury. A change in shoes also made a big difference.

    • cruzin_gramps


      Thanks for the check. 2 more weeks before deciding the next steps. I'm cautiously optimistic I can start back up in a few more weeks. Your training looks good. You should do well at Canberra.

    Tahoe Donner Showshoe Hike


    Trekking 2:01'24.4 Average heart rate 137 bpm, 10.97 km.
    Snowshoes - half trails, half xcountry. Note to self: change interval setting to 0.2 mi for longer than 5mi. TE was 4.5 before 5 mi mark


    Wilder Ranch 25Km


    Trail running 3:15'09.4 Average heart rate 142 bpm, 25.86 km.
    Wilder Ranch Loop & Long Meadow Loop - A rather cool Sun AM workout to test the suppliments. Felt considerably better than the last time which was only an electrolyte & a little gel. Working to a 30k on Jan 22nd.


    Squaw Mountain Run


    Trail running 0:53'17.4 Average heart rate 156 bpm, 6.27 km.
    This is definetly the toughest run so far. It's all uphill from start to finish. My goals going in were to finish under an hour and run (jog) the entire run. So I feel good I did both. The last half mile was a mental challenge. I wasn't familiar with the course and when nearing the top I kept expecting to come up over the ridge and then enjoy a short downhill to the finish. Who ever laid out the course is sadistic as the finish was an increasing uphill climb. Even tossed the breakfast! =}


    Henry Cowell to Wilder Ranch - PR distance


    Trail running 3:05'54.4 Average heart rate 142 bpm, 24.15 km.
    Had a nice run today, Henry Cowell to Wilder Ranch. My longest so far. Lot's of tourists, horses, bikers & hikers. I met the only other trail runner taking the same course but heading back, 30 miles. Very impressive! Nice conversation. Elevation change 1184 ft

    Nisene Marks Half Marathon/Mud Run


    Trail running 2:18'34 Average heart rate 149 bpm, 21.08 km.
    Garrett joined me for my first half marathoin which turned out to be a major mud run. Heavy rain from start to finish kept the pace down. But it still feels good to have made it! Nothing feels better than crossing the finish line! Nisene Marks in the rain IS Jurasic Park. I'd definetly do this one again. Total ascent - 1840 ft. Pace - 0:10'35/mi, much better than expected. Placed 88/155, not too bad for my first and 12th most vintage runner. =}


    First TE 5.0 - Wilder Ranch Loop


    Trail running 1:44'59.5 Average heart rate 159 bpm, 15.06 km.
    Elevation change - 1150 ft, total ascent - 2038 ft PR - First TE 5.0. After 7 mo training I'm feeling stronger and more confident. Learning how to relax through the pain. Posture and form are making a difference. Pace = 11:07 / mi


    ITR-Santa Cruz 30K


    Trail running 3:49'36.7 Average heart rate 141 bpm, 29.70 km.
    Placed 14 out of 30, 1st in my agre group. The courese was a nice challenge with 2 river crossings. The last minute course changes added2k ft evelation change. After less than 2 yrs of running it feels good knowing I was the most senior runner in the race and placed in the middle of the standings. Overall I felt good. The last 4 mi after the river crossing was tougher than I expected.


    First 1,000 Mi


    Trail running 2:35'39.7 Average heart rate 141 bpm, 19.96 km.
    Ran the second leg of the Pacifica 30K. After breaking a hard sweat the cool temp and winds kept it very cold. The jacket came in handy. I felt much more comfortable after dialing back the H2O and gel a bit. I'll be looking at 4 hrs+ for the 30K next weekend.

    Brooks Falls - My First 30Km


    Trail running 4:19'55.4 Average heart rate 155 bpm, 30.00 km.
    Total ascent 4468ft. HR battery died about 30 min in. Weather was cold and wet! I seem to have an affinity for races in the rain. The course is great. Lots of technical single track with great views of the coast from Montera Peak. Downhill from Motera Pk was challenging and fun. The second loop on Hazelnut trail was a killer. I feel good having accomplished a 30k at my age and after 15 mo of running. Nice to know I can do what the Dr's said I can't! I'm still looking for the limit.


    U-Con / Wilder Ranch


    Trail running 3:34'09.4 Average heart rate 141 bpm, 29.74 km.
    Added U-Con trial to my usual route at Wilder. had a great run up through the upper end of UCSC then into Wilder ranch. Felt relaxed and kept my pace up and enjoyed the surroundings. Legs started cramping the last 2 mi so had to back it off. Pleased with overall pace. Now time to taper for next Sat.


    Catalina Marathon


    Trail running 6:03'46.4 Average heart rate 121 bpm, 42.17 km.
    Well... it wasn't pretty. I made a last minute decision run after another week of a cold relapse. I felt good enough to run and wasn't going to let my 1st marathon get away. I started out good & strong but by Two Harbors my body told me I was going to pull back and my breathing became a limitation. Definitely a good experience in learning my body and running. I am glad I did it and made the accomplishment. Now it's time to get back to health and focus on the net one. I'll do this one again...

    Karvonen Training...

    1.12.2012, Bucheror

    ------------------------ The Karvonen formula is the gold standard for training zones. It is based on your Reserve Heart Rate, the difference between your maximum HR and your Rest HR, rather than only the max heart rate. 50% to 60%: Recovery and weight loss zone. 60% to 70%: The heart starts to benefit from the exercise. Slow and long distance exercise. Fat is the primary fuel and therefore good zone for weight loss. 70% to 80%: Aerobic zone - This is the optimal zone to workout in to increase your cardio-respitory capacity or the bodies ability to transport oxygenated blood to the muscle cells and carbon dioxide away from the cells. 80% to 90%: Cross over from aerobic training to anaerobic. Training in this zone will improve performance and dealing with Lactic acid. Training in this zone is felt as hard. 90% to 100%: Red Line Zone - You will only be able to train in this zone for short periods of time. You should not train at this level unless you are very fit. In this zone lactic ...
