Oh, this isn't about me, Sal, dgeek and doperdude. But I appreciate your thoughts. Someone else may too.

Tramps, er, what is it with the turtle on the ticker? Tsk. You're no turtle.

Still cookin' down there, tomwhite? Pitter-patter of rain on my rooftop right now. Cool too.

Man, I'm glad it's Friday. Buy me a brewski anyone?

Awaiting the comeback of velour jumpsuit couture.

1-nothing is on my 'calandar'. I will probably try to run a few 5 or 10K's this fall to see what level of pathetic shape I am in. I will run a few local races but I am thinking marathoning is not for my body. Troubles with my torn quad have come back every time I try to run even medium mileage...sigh
2-LR's with relative anemia aren't a good combination...so be careful, and accept a slower pace. Don't be afraid to cut it short if needed.

GL!

Hi MS!! You've become a biking fiend! Go girl.

A copy and paste from Boomers I thought the tomatoe recipe was worth it.

Home grown Tomatoes rule. Ours are coming in in a big way.

BLT love em.

A nordic variation on the tomatoe and cheese. One Piece of good bread top with cheese of your choice. 1 slice tomatoe top with Bacon, Lox whatever. drop under the broiler. Endless variations.

Anyway, I got for 4.8 in 53:44 good lunchtime run.

I'm going to try my first nite time run tonight, anyone have any thoughts on Headlamp vs. hand held flashlight??? I'll try both methods anyway.

Sorry, I missed you at the gym Tammy, the first day out and about proved a little taxing on the Mrs.

Good luck BAP tomorrow.

nice improvement on the speed bap! good luck tomorrow.

john - that's okay. when i didn't see you there, i figured just being out for a short time was too much for S.

I have a real run to report I got in my 4 miles at the gym. I am trying to incorporate some speedwork into my TM runs because conditioning myself for some speedwork is probably the only way I'm going to legitmately earn a medal and actually get to keep it at these races. So, I stuck right around a 9.5 min mile for most of the run, but then was able to sustain a 8 min mile pace for 1/2 mile, then did a 7.3 min mile pace for 1/4 mile. not very long, but I guess I gotta start somewhere. I figure if each week I can add another 1/4 mile to the highest speed, then I'll feel more confident at the races to start kicking it up earlier in the race w/o fear of dying before i get to the finish line.

Thanks for the welcome SS - How about a virtual brewski - best I can do I on short notice . . .

Hi Pro - yes, it's me. The runner formerly known as TMWIP.

Hi Dale - what fall races are you thinking of? There's one last Wickham on Monday . . .

well, i don't know if i'd say that john. You were smokin' at the 12K and I think it'll take me quite sometime before I can sustain that kind of speed for that long. You are in much better shape than I am

it's nice to see pink, the doc, jura . . . and everyone else that is posting over here now as well.

hey duckgeek - what can you tell me about the olympic trials in the spring - are they selling out already?

Pie,

SS! Reveal personal information to a psycho killer, sammich chopping, *ss kicking Easter bunny? Um, no, I'll take my chances with the predators.

Ilene! Reveal personal information to someone who wants to make sure I'm "properly probed"? Um, no, I'll take my chances with the Easter bunny.

Edit: Wow, dtoce, nice workout in the hot hot weather!

Yesssssss! The "new look" Sousi is, at long last, commanding (demanding?) respect that was eluding me at B&B.

Heh. Amazing what a wee witty bunny avatar and vid can accomplish. I'm leavin' it be fer now.

(I shoulda asked Ilene for lessons long ago)

Hi SS

Hi Pink, Glad you're here. I was kinda partial to TMWIP, but that's all old now.

I got in a nice 50 min with my buddy matt today.

Ignore me, just rambling it is good to see you over here.

Hmm. Your "pathetic shape" is everyone else's "best shape I've been in my life." Still, I know that troublesome quad is such a disappointment to you. I have a hunch you're a tough one to slow down. Maybe you just need a really lengthy build-up.

I know it is ridiculous for me to try to offer up suggestions on what you should do. Stuart's sister and BIL are both doctors, and his sister in particular is the Worst.Patient.Ever. I think you medical types are tough on yourselves. Your crazy-busy lives can't help much.

Anyway, it's too darn early to throw in the towel on the marathon. Being a youngster , you have loads of time to get back into it again. And those 5 and 10k's will make you even speedier.

Hi, hally. Hi, Pro. Is that 50 mins running or riding? Never know with you.

Dale,
No one will want to advise the Dr. But I am known for being foolish. So, I cannot believe a torn quad will prohibit long running. (Been there done that). I tend to see everything from my perspective, but I 'have" suffered every injury known to runners.

But,...Timing is everything. Hartford could well be too close. But it's all about getting the miles under your belt, as you know. So relax, and build back.

Crai

hmmmm . . . maybe shoulda kept my old nickname . . . Hally, isn't that other P!nk? Any ideas for a handle? Now be nice . . .

Dale - I plan on being there Monday. I'll have to try to spot you out, but you were a blur as you blew past me in Manchester . . .

I'm really loving how fast this site loads! You wouldn't believe how slow CR is on this old clunker!

I like all the icons to easily pick from too.

Now I just have to find a picture for my posts.

(meekly raising hand) I am the anemic blood-letter who is going to run 19 on Sunday. Thurs...Fri...Sat...Sun -- that's 3 days in between to eat dark leafy green veggies and drink lotsa fluids, I promise!

I will go slow, I promise (admittedly, I was pretty pooped today). And I might run H2C next weekend, depending on whether the Anonymous Team of Mystery contacts me.

Hi Pink! Hi dale and pie and ilene and SS and pro and tamster and mrs labduck and everyone!
