All Star Splash Brothers

It is now official — we have two Warriors in the all star game! This has been ultimately the best season so far since I turned into a Warriors fan sometime in 2011. We are all waiting for the playoffs now and I’m wearing a Splash Brothers t-shirt.

3 x mile in Arena

It is almost two years from the last time I was running in Esport Arena and track repeats in the first place. Went there tonight out of the blue while the kids played tennis. I was painfully slow. Clocked in 5.32, hospital 5.34 and 5.38 with 1 minute breaks. Avg 3.29/km. Was hoping for at least four repeats taking into account the great trail run less than two weeks ago. But tonight I just ran out of legs, lower back (in curves) and time. Perhaps reached an overall personal low.

Half in Woodside 1.31

Good running and occasional tennis to mix with in the US over the past two weeks. Ran a pretty good Crystal Springs half in Woodside last Sunday. Official results say the time was 1.33 something but my own stopwatch clocked in 2 mins faster. It was overall a very positive run taking into account no pacemaking and I hadn’t been running much for some time. The previous week started with the 13-mile scenic drive in Red Rock Canyon. From highway to highway in 1.28 and total 15-mile something loop was like 1.44 if I recall it right. — My tennis is far from running at this point.
