Morning all! Nuthin' yet. Son1 and I will be heading out in just a few for our "Over the River" ride to Grandma's. Still a bit sore from the encounter with the dreadmill, but otherwise looking forward to the ride. Winds most likely will not cooperate. See y'all tomorrow afternoon!
Good morning! I'm not sure I'm going to do anything today but pushups and pullups. Mr jebba has 5 on the schedule today (I did the turkey trot yesterday), and I might run with him to keep him company. Right now I am still full from yesterday and not wanting to get off the couch.
Ask your doctor if getting off your ass is right for you.
Good morning. Heading to work at the running store for a few hours then hope to get away for a few trail miles this afternoon. I need to work off some of yesterday's feast!
4BM- enjoy the ride to (and leftovers) at Grandma's
jebba- now push-ups not enough? Have fun - Rock those pull-ups.
Flounder- enjoy the Y with the girls
Dave- That was some fast 10 miler yesterday
crunningman- nice to see you around more
RA- nice work defending your AG crown
FB and Brown- congrats on the HM race
Phill- congrats on the PR!
4BM enjoy the ride.
Jebba enjoy whatever you decide to do...
Flounder nice running this morning -- have fun with the girls.
Roots have fun on the trails this afternoon.
Back on the roads again this morning. Thought I was dong a little under 15 -- but turns out it was closer to 15.5 miles -- did it in 1:49, so guess I was going faster than I thought... Was a bit chilly, but very scenic on the country roads -- got to say "hi" to plenty of cows, horses, and sheep...
All I have on schedule for the excercise portion of the day is pushups. I think that the total for the day is 200. We shall see how that goes. Then exhaustion test tomorrow. Have a great morning everyone.
I too was relatively reserved with my intake yesterday so I was able to pop a pretty good five-miler today. The run puts the monthly total to 106, eclipsing by one my best monthly total of this decidedly modest-mileage year.
Guess I'm playing with house money for the balance of November.
No run yeseterday but had a lot of fun and food. It feels nice to enjoy eating for the first time in a few months. It's definitely going to suck going back to the cafeteria after this. After breakfast I'll head out for something.
Hey everyone! Phillip has to work from 3 - 10 (stupid Black Friday ), so I'm taking him to work and heading out to the lake to run with a couple of runner friends. One of them is the guy who just ran the ultra (50 miler) in Maryland last weekend. I hope to hear some good stories from him. The other guy I've run with a couple of times before. He's tapering right now for the California International Marathon. Both of these guys are going to Boston in April. Anyway, this afternoon's run should be fun!
We'll probably get in anywhere from 8 to 12 miles, depending on how far they want to go. If they don't want to go as far as I do I'll just keep running.
Happy Friday - great to think today is only a Friday isn't it?
Well, I was planning to do a morning long run but after the feast last night I slept in, finally rolled out of bed around 11, lounged around and read the paper over breakfast, then rolled out the door at almost 1pm.
The plan for today was to hit the trail for somewhere between 10-14, at whatever pace I felt like. So I went right down the middle on the distance at 12.01 miles (I guess when I turned around after 6, that's where the extra 17 yards came from). As for the pace, after a couple very easy warmup miles (8:22, 8:05), I let it go a bit and ended up with 1:33:30 for the whole thing, 7:47/mile. Not bad at all, I think I'm ready to get started on that Boston thing next week.
Black Friday - not a big fan either but the Tar-zhay did have a few things on sale I could use, so I may head there later after the crowds go home.
Nothing much for me today. I did have pushups planned, but my wrist is a bit sore so I may do them tomorrow instead. Went out and bought a new mattress for my bed. It should be here middle of this next week. That was my splurge for the day. Lots of people at the mall and not so sure if many people were buying much.
