2007/06/19 Marina Run to Golden Gate & Golden Gate Park Rollerblading
π 2007-06-19 21:12 by Merlin in Exercising

After visiting San Francisco, I met Jennifer after her conference and we went for a run of 8.2 miles through the Marina, the Golden Gate, and back to the hotel, in a pretty strong wind.
It turned out to be the longest distance that Jennifer had run so far, and she did great. While we only averaged speeds of 10mn/mile, or a total of about 1h20, we made it from end to end, which is what matters.










The few remainting pictures are here

The next morning, I went rollerblading the Golden Gate Park. Unfortunately, it's not a very good layout, nothing close to a loop, but there are nice things to visit (except for the fact that half of them prohibit rollerblades :( ), and it's reasonably rollerbladable (some pieces have so-so pavement and require riding on the street). I ended up with the path below, totalling 11 miles.


















I took a fair amount of pictures of the Golden Gate Park

Jennifer and I did another ride around the Baylands, but this time northwest bound, close to our rollerblading trail, but using nearby trails that were mountain bike only.
It was a good time in the season to see all the little birdies, and we finished the ride by taking the trail around the PAO airport.















And here are the other pictures of the bike ride
2007/06/10 Little ride around the San Francisco Marina

Jennifer and Anna were going to the CA winemakers thank you luncheon (which ended up being fairly poor food and free wines to taste), and since we'd be up there, we took the opportunity to go rollerblading first.
We ended up rollerblading with the SF Marina all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge and back. It was a nice little ride (6 miles)

2007/06/05 action-marc: Best run times
π 2007-06-05 20:22 by Merlin in Exercising

I ran around the google block twice before boot camp today, and set my best times yet:
3m: 21:45
5k: 22:28
3.2m: 23:00 (that's exactly twice around the block)
avg speed: 7.13mn/mile for 3mile (I can likely do 6:30mn for just a mile, but never tried since I usually run longer than just a mile)
heart rate: 170bpm avg

Anyway, I'm pretty happy with those numbers for a change :)
