wow, a month without running

April 2nd, 2006

I can’t believe it’s been an entire month since I last ran (3/1 according to my training diary). I did an easy 31 minute run today. Not much of a run, but I’m happy to be running again! And, it’s now DST, so I can run later in the day!

Hollywood Hills Run

February 11th, 2006

Had a nice walk/run in my neighborhood today. I didn’t realize that Hollywood Blvd continues on west past Laurel Canyon (up into the Hollywood hills). Today I used the OwnZone setting on my heart rate monitor. It never let me run for more than 2 minutes straight because I would be over my target heart rate. Looking forward to doing the same run/exercise but running the whole time and staying within that heart rate range.
