Truxx, I can wait a little while to see how my running goes I am slowly increasing my milage again now that weather is nice in the morning. It's been amazing over the last week getting back into some weight training it  has given me a little bounce in my step again and I am amazed how much I can still lift.

 

Grommit, give me another month or so before I hit the mountain I would be huffing and puffing to much and could not keep up with the group. I may be up ther for a little hike with my old Nikon F5 film camera. Got an itching to play with it and a bunch of rolls of film I need to expose before they expire. I could do a meet up and this Thursday and Friday is no good for me since Angie is on a road trip to Toronto and Detroit to meet with clients and May 22 I will be travling to NJ. other than that May is a lite month for scheduling.

A hug and a kiss on the bridge this morning.  Sure we entertained a handful of folks trying to get into town   biggrin.gif .   Glad that I didn't change my mind and turn around because of the wind or I wouldn't have met TB.  

 

Yep, lots more runners and more cyclists.  I didn't leave the house as early as I initially wanted and I met  more traffic on my way home.  Interesting to see folks cycling into town and back -probably for work.  

 

Thanks for the offer Truxx, I'm keep it in mind.  Enjoy another beautiful day people.

Grommit- Good idea for either a run or a beer! I don't know where you are running mainly,

but I am ready for a longish run this Sunday. Up to about 10-12 miles. I was planning on

going to Mt.St-Bruno, but if you are in town and want to do Mount Royal, I am in. I am

free for a beer almost anytime. I just like to show up after the traffic dies down, after 7..

 

Enjoy the beautiful weather. I sure am.

Two hours on the mountain this morning, I thought I would have the place practically to myself - not - it was busy for an early Sunday.  Fifty minutes in and it was raining and like an idjiot I left my ball cap in my locker.  So wet, cold, continued, two laps at the top, pit stop and finally made it back down.  Lunch with family, hot bath - and I passed out for an hour  rolleyes.gif  .   All that fresh air, yeah, that's it.

 

Anyone else out there ?

Well fly .... I was out there. An hour & a half on Friday night, two hours Saturday morning and four hours yesterday to round out another good week.
I just found the report feature on my garmin page: Last 30 days, count 20 runs, distance 244.6miles, time 42:50:15 hms, elevation gain 22,277ft, calories 27,997C..... Ave speed: SLOW smile.gif oddly enough.... The rest days feel very weird, totally at a loose end so I'm off to try hot yoga tonight.

Happy trails people...

Greetings everybody,

 

I should arrive in town tonight and stay there for about a week. Would anybody be interested in a get-together on Wednesday or Friday?

Keep those feet moving

Hey Ralf, Wednesday would work for me, let me know, you have my number.

 

Thought of running on the mountain this morning but life has been hectic since last week, add the weather, I stayed home.  When the rain slacked off a bit, got dressed - and headed out the door, ran over to the JC bridge, into town, rain, wind, at the top I think it was wet snow...I was the only runner, rolleyes.gif, a handful of cyclists, some walkers trying to shelter under umbrellas.  Door to door, a bit over 10k.   Low mileage weekend, myeh.

 

Anyone go to Ottawa this weekend ?

I was in Ottawa over the weekend, but just a spectator.. My calf has been giving me 

problems again, so I couldn't do the 1/2.. I had fun watching though. The conditions

were great, not hot, and everyone did well it looked like.

 

Ralf.. Wed. night would work for me.. let me know.

Let's aim for 19h15 at Hurley's. I have a meeting before and might not be on time but should not be too late.

Looking forward to see you

Western States 100 starts in about 15 hours and thety are prediction record heat temperatures this week-end, I hope Grommit has his electrolytes. Good luck Gro sounds like your gonna need to run this one carefully.

 

 

The National Weather Service is warning residents from northern California, including Sacramento, all the way to southern Arizona of the possibility of intense heat through the weekend that could rival a 2005 heat wave that killed 17 people in the Las Vegas area.

Arizona and the California deserts seem to be in for the worst of it. Temperatures are forecast to rise as high as 122 degrees in California's Coachella Valley, as high as 129 in Death Valley and up to 118 in Phoenix.

Nevada won't get off easy either. In Las Vegas, the temperature is forecast to climb to 115. So emergency crews there are sending ambulances to stand by near the city's famed Strip, as well as at outdoor events, to help quickly treat people affected by the heat, according to CNN affiliate KLAS.

Looks like Gro dropped with 10 miles to go it must mean that the temperatures were grueling, not like him to stop. Congrats still go out to you Grommit I know in normal circumstances you would have nailed it.

Gary OMG I am glad you are Ok, This happened at peak a mild version again on a hot race day. Maybe the aid stations should stock carry McDonald's fries just for the sodium content on hot days

 

 

Rest up and we can organize a get together when you get back so that you can tell us all about the 90 miles in temperatures up to 102 degrees, that you did complete.

 

BTW are you still thinking of VT100.

Good grief, must have given everyone a fright, you included.  Safe trip home.

 

McDonalds french fries - what I did last Sunday at lunch after a long run.

safely home! I'm not feeling too bad really, kind of like I went through the ringer, literally! As much as I love the Kick forums I am not totally comfortable sharing the details here so I guess we'll have to get together for live race report before the summers out!

 

happy trails biggrin.gif

Labor day weekend is looking good for me, just enough time for everyone to clear their schedule.
