Progression Daily Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/ Sun, 15 Jul 2018 14:55:15 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Sat, Jul 14, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-14-2018.html <p>I had aspirations of running to AZ from my house but after struggling for the first couple miles I settled for a Sun River exploration. The more I ran the more relaxed I felt. I might consider a run this afternoon. This week has been great for me! I finally feel like I&rsquo;m finding a groove again. I look forward to progressing through the upcoming months and having an amazing xc season. 8.70 miles&nbsp;</p> Sat, 14 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 13, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-13-2018.html <p>Looped around Bloomington hills north park then out to the trail system. 8 striders.</p> <p>4.15 miles&nbsp;</p> Fri, 13 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 12, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-12-2018.html <p>AM: Ran out&nbsp;to Twilight Tunnel with Jason. He wanted me to lead in the tunnel in case there was a snake or a bum. Ironically enough as soon as we got out of the tunnel I stopped and Jason continued on and ran right by a rattle snake. I yelled out snake! Then we waited for the rest of the team to see it. Ran back with Scottie, Jason, and Zack. 6.12 miles&nbsp;</p> <p>PM: 18 minutes in the heat after weights. Still super slow but it will come with the miles. 2.01 miles</p> <p>PM 2: I went out on a walk in the rain because I was bored.&nbsp; Then I noticed the river was running chocolatey and deep. No more than 10 minutes later George and I went tubing down river from Bloomington Wal-Mart down to Man O War bridge.&nbsp;&nbsp;We did the ride twice and ran back up stream twice. 2.1 miles&nbsp;</p> Thu, 12 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 11, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-11-2018.html <p>AM: Ran slowly up to the dirt mile. Found Nick and ran with him for about a mile. Then met up with Landon for some tempo. Cooled with Carter, Boston, and Bentley. 5.22 miles&nbsp;</p> <p>PM: Ran around the hood and dipped into some trails. 3.20 miles&nbsp;</p> Wed, 11 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 10, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-10-2018.html <p>AM: The normal Tuesday run. Still feeling nauseous. 3.42 miles&nbsp;</p> <p>PM: Running in the heat with a sore hamstring. 1.92 miles&nbsp;</p> Tue, 10 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 09, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-09-2018.html <p>AM: Sandhill! I&rsquo;ve hiked by the Sandhill but had never gone up it. On the way out to the hill my calves were tight and wouldn&rsquo;t loosen up. I wasn&rsquo;t quite ready for Sandhill but I went for it anyways. As I charged the hill I started to feel nauseous so I walked a lot up. Even when I got to the top and ran down I still felt sick. The rest of the way back to the school I went into survival mode. 8.12 miles (subtracted stretch of walking)&nbsp;</p> <p>PM: Ran more Sugar Leo with Marieta. Hot and muggy! 2.93 miles&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Mon, 09 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 07, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-07-2018.html <p>Got out late and ran a nice neighborhood run in the dark streets of Bloomington. This has been my first week going over 30 miles since mid October of 2017! I don&#39;t know why I have been so sucky. I am progressing and hope to hit it hard for the rest of the xc season. 3.64 miles&nbsp;</p> Sat, 07 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 06, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-06-2018.html <p>PM: Went our at 1:30pm! Super hot but I felt pretty comfortable. 3.05 miles&nbsp;</p> Fri, 06 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 05, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-05-2018.html <p>AM: Ran a new loop&nbsp;around the neighborhood. Marieta ran a mile with me. I&rsquo;m feeling a little sore but I chalk that up to not being able run this many miles in a long time. 4.34 miles&nbsp;</p> <p>PM: Half the loop with Metler. 3.51 miles&nbsp;</p> Thu, 05 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 04, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-04-2018.html <p>Got out and ran at 4pm before the bbq. Also did the grapevine hike this morning.&nbsp;</p> <p>3.10 miles&nbsp;</p> Wed, 04 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 03, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-03-2018.html <p><span style="caret-color: rgb(69, 69, 69); color: rgb(69, 69, 69); font-family: UICTFontTextStyleBody; font-size: 17px; text-decoration: -webkit-letterpress;">AM: Ran Strawberry Ridge rd. Stretched a couple of times as per usual. My IT whatever was hurting a little bit as I wrapped up the run. I&rsquo;ll make sure to stretch and ice. 4.70 miles&nbsp;</span></p> <p>PM: Ran the loop partly with Metler. After about a mile and a half in I told him to press on without me. He is a great running/life mentor. 3.03 miles</p> Tue, 03 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 02, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-02-2018.html <p><span style="caret-color: rgb(69, 69, 69); color: rgb(69, 69, 69); font-family: UICTFontTextStyleBody; font-size: 17px; text-decoration: -webkit-letterpress;">AM: Ran out to meet my Dad doing the Lars Fork Loop. I had to stretch a couple of times on the way out. I don&rsquo;t mind stopping and stretching in the mountains. Once I met up with my Dad I was able to run solid. 5.12 miles&nbsp;</span></p> <div style="caret-color: rgb(69, 69, 69); color: rgb(69, 69, 69); font-family: UICTFontTextStyleBody; font-size: 17px; text-decoration: -webkit-letterpress;">PM: Ran some random trail by the cabin. It was mainly uphill on the way out. I ran 1.05 miles up in&nbsp;<a dir="ltr" href="x-apple-data-detectors://0" x-apple-data-detectors="true" x-apple-data-detectors-result="0" x-apple-data-detectors-type="calendar-event">10:17</a>&nbsp;then 1.05 miles back in&nbsp;<a dir="ltr" href="x-apple-data-detectors://1" x-apple-data-detectors="true" x-apple-data-detectors-result="1" x-apple-data-detectors-type="calendar-event">7:22</a>. I&rsquo;m starting to feel like I can run decent. Looking forward to making it a good week. 2.10 miles&nbsp;</div> <div style="caret-color: rgb(69, 69, 69); color: rgb(69, 69, 69); font-family: UICTFontTextStyleBody; font-size: 17px; text-decoration: -webkit-letterpress;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="caret-color: rgb(69, 69, 69); color: rgb(69, 69, 69); font-family: UICTFontTextStyleBody; font-size: 17px; text-decoration: -webkit-letterpress;">7.22 miles&nbsp;</div> <div style="caret-color: rgb(69, 69, 69); color: rgb(69, 69, 69); font-family: UICTFontTextStyleBody; font-size: 17px; text-decoration: -webkit-letterpress;">&nbsp;</div> <p>&nbsp;</p> Mon, 02 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 30, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-30-2018.html <p>Ran a little in some lame hot Vegas streets. 1.99 miles&nbsp;</p> Sat, 30 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 29, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-29-2018.html <p>AM: Heritage Park and up past&nbsp;the liquor store. I had the usual struggles. Boston and the crew came back for me on the steep hill. They made me feel welcomed and stuck with them the rest of the run. Soon I will overcome this nonsense. 3.70 miles&nbsp;</p> <p>PM: Marieta&rsquo;s chiropractic Dad did some work on my leg. I should have had him work on both legs.&nbsp;2 slow miles in the heat of Las Vegas with Marieta. 2.01 miles&nbsp;</p> Fri, 29 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 27, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-27-2018.html <p>Ran more random hilly roads in Vista California with my Dad. My calves still wouldn&rsquo;t let me run the hills. I&rsquo;m disappointed about the calves but at least it&rsquo;s not my old injury. I miss the xc team already.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 27 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 26, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-26-2018.html <p>Ran a fun trail next to Oceanside Harbor with Marieta. I had to stop and stretch the calves again.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 26 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 25, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-25-2018.html <p>Ran some random road with Marieta and Ross. I had calf problems still.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 25 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 22, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-22-2018.html <p>5 minute warm up with Marieta.&nbsp;</p> <p>Negative split run. I had to stop and stretch on the way out past Tonaquint. On the way back I mainly ran with Jason. It felt different picking me up the speed on the way back. My body didn&rsquo;t feel quite ready. 18 minutes out/16 minutes back. 4.53 miles.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 22 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 21, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-21-2018.html <p>5 minute warm by myself.</p> <p>Then 41 minutes with Ethan, Elijah, Josh, and Bobston. I&rsquo;m stoked I was able to complete a run with the goon squad. 5.02 miles&nbsp;</p> Thu, 21 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 20, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-20-2018.html <p>AM: Drove up close to the grapevine trail so I could do the uphill portion with some of the boys. Ended up running 10 minutes with Bryan, Tavin, Jason, and Sr Del Toro. My legs were sore legs but no injury pains so that&rsquo;s great! 2.35 miles&nbsp;</p> <p>PM: Ran with Metler and Marieta on the Loop. Got covered in bugs and could only go about 3 miles. No injury pain still. Good signs but I am not getting cocky yet. I am looking forward to running in the afternoons with Metler, even if its only for a mile or two.&nbsp; 3.02 miles</p> Wed, 20 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 19, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-19-2018.html <p>So I am thinking I need to shake out my legs every morning before running with the team. My body is going through pains and soreness I have never experienced. It&#39;s all about adjusting and learning. I felt pretty good (decent) playing ultimate and capture the flag, which was a huge surprise.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 19 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 18, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-18-2018.html <p>30 with Carson as he gets back into it.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 18 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 16, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-16-2018.html <p>I felt really sore this morning. I think the Blow Hard trail got the best of me.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 16 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 15, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-15-2018.html <p>I watched my dad and Marieta run well in the SG 10k and it made me hate being injured even more. Hiked Blow Hard afterwards, and jogged a little.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 15 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 14, 2018 http://joshdecker.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-14-2018.html <p>AM:&nbsp;Ran with Josue, Gabe, and some others for about 10 minutes until my knee area started hurting. I hobbled back to the school. The pain felt different than the usual so maybe that&rsquo;s a good thing? 2.77 miles</p> <p>PM: Hiked then jogged a little with Marieta as she came back from a run on cedar mountain. .52&nbsp;</p> Thu, 14 Jun 2018 06:00:00
