Jerry Garcia Memorial River Run And Walk - Articles

A good walk/jog on the Jordan River Parkway by Allen Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Tue 21 Apr 2009 11:47pm 1 Comment I just returned from my 1.5 mile jaunt. I alternated walking and jogging, and the total distance jogged was 0.5 miles or 33% of the total. It was a month ago (March 23) that I did my first jogging as part of the 1.5 miles. In four weeks I've gone from walking 1.5 miles to walking a mile and jogging 1/2 mile, alternating the two paces for 200 - 400 ... Read on »
The best run/walk I've had in 3 years by Allen Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Wed 05 Oct 2011 4:20pm I had a great 100 minute medium run this morning. I completed 6 miles in the 100 minutes. Typically, I've done about 5.2 miles in that time, and a few times when I was tired I only did 4.8 miles. This illustrates why I like running or walking for time rather than for distance. When I'm tired, I do less distance and when I feel great, I do more di ... Read on »
Had a good medium run/walk for 50 minutes by Allen Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Thu 29 Mar 2012 8:19pm When I left home about 3 pm to go running, a few sprinkles of rain were occurring, but by the time I parked at the South Jordan East Pavilion, the sprinkles had stopped. The sky was overcast, and a light north wind was blowing. The temperature was pleasant, probably in the mid to high 60s (F). I ran/walked (using my usual 3:20 running and 1: ... Read on »
Another great run/walk - 140 minutes by Allen Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Sat 11 Aug 2012 12:00am I started at 100th South in South Jordan City and ran to 78th South in Midvale City. My wakeup heart rate was 57, higher than the 54 I had yesterday. The difference was likely due to my mowing my lawns yesterday. When I finished with the lawns, my heart was pumping fast, and I was tired. Apparently, my body hadn't fully recovered by this morning ... Read on »
Ran/walked for 112 minutes and did 5 miles by Allen Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Thu 26 Jul 2012 12:00am I ran north from 100th South so I could see where the connection is to get back to the Jordan River Parkway. Google maps showed the connection to be about 8300 South. The person I talked with a few days ago said the connection wasn't far from 90th South and that I should look for a break in the fence. He said there were commercial buildings, and ... Read on »
I did it! 16 miles of running/walking this week by Allen Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Sat 20 Nov 2010 2:55pm I ran 5.5 miles again, giving me 16 miles this week in three days of running/walking. This is the largest weekly distance I've had since my blood clot attack in January 2009. I did 22 miles the week before the attack. My body felt tired as soon as I started running, and I switched to running 50-66 left-foot-steps and walking 40-50 lfs. I comp ... Read on »
Dogs and kids know what to do when walking or running by Allen Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Sat 25 Jun 2011 3:00pm On my way down to the 12300 Bridge, I came to the 11400 South bridge and stopped running while I walked around the water that was covering the path (more water there than last week).  I saw two ladies walking their dogs, and the ladies thought they would walk through the water. However, they realized the water was deeper than they had thought, an ... Read on »
Completed a 100 minute run/walk by Allen Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Wed 12 Sep 2012 12:00am I forgot to measure my wakeup heart rate this morning, but I felt energetic when I started my workout today. I ran south from 100th South for 50 minutes and then returned. I did 5 miles. There were a lot of cyclists and a few skaters but not many runners or walkers. The temperature was in the low 70s (F), and I actually felt cold during the firs ... Read on »
I had a really good 80 minute run/walk by Allen Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Thu 25 Oct 2012 12:00am I left home about 5:30 for my second run/walk this week. The temperature was in the high 30s (F) when I left. I didn't check the temperature when I returned home, but it was snowing quite hard. I increased both the run and walk segments of my run from 50 seconds to 55 seconds, a 10% increase. I ran south from 100th South on the Jordan River Park ... Read on »
A great 65-minute run/walk by Allen Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Sat 17 Nov 2012 12:00am I didn't measure my wakeup heart rate this morning, but I felt pretty good, thanks to several nights of good sleep. I added 5 seconds to both my running and walking (60 seconds each phase) and covered 3.33 miles in 65 minutes. I went north from 100th South. When I got to the golf course, instead of following the yellow line through the golf cour ... Read on »
