Beautiful day here today.   60 degrees and a little wind this morning.  6 miles with avg of 8.21.    Would have been faster has it not been for my running partners dinner last night.   Had to make a pit stop and I went on very slowly so he could catch up.

Think I'll cut my mileage back this week and try to run an 8K this weekend.  This race was always a fast 10k but they've changed the course and distance this year.   Might be a nice change and challenge.


carry on kickstars.

Hi Baba

Sounds like a plan KS!

And lovely weather there, I must say.


Can't complain here either, it's nice and sunny and crisp outside today.  -8°C when I headed for work.

Got in a whole 2 miles on the TM..... alternating 2 minutes walk, 2 minutes run. Then some hip and calf strength work.

And the foot is so far holding up.

Baby steps......

keep holding up foot!!


Hi John, Hi Heme!


Going to run after work today. Normally I wouldn't because I ran fri, sat and sun but today is our nice day this week - sunny, mild - and then it turns to off and on rain all week, but nice again for the wknd. So, I hate to let a nice day go to waste when the rest of the week might be unpredictable. 


David starts track today. this past week and weekend has been a test in patience for him! He's been so anxious for track and said even though this was only a regular 2 day wknd, it felt SO long because he just could not wait for today!   Time trials will probably be later this week - like thursday - so if they need help, i'll probably head over to school that day and help out.

Hi, Gang.

   I put in another three-miler today, third day in a row. I have up until now settled for twos for pre-workday workouts but managed a little extra today. Perhaps even a new standard.


Good runs, all

Wow.  Everyone's healthy?  We should celebrate.


6 M on the TM, plus some core work.  My rest day tomorrow promises to be taken up with snow-shoveling x-training.

Snow shovelling is a great x-training exercise - about once a year. It gets real old really quickly!

No snow here: a sunny afternoon with temps in the mid 50's. 5.25 miles a tad under 8:00/mi pace. Felt not bad... smile.gif

7.2 miles on the treadmill in an hour.  Right leg wasn't ready to run but I drug it along for a couple miles until it got with the program.

Forecast anywhere from 1-8 inches of snow tomorrow depending on where the storm hits.
