Go Floridaboiler! That's inspiring. If you can do 20.5, I can surely do 5. Baby steps...baby steps...<br><br><img alt="notworthy.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/notworthy.gif">

Wow, equinox. I never before saw one of your run reports. You are a very detailed person!<br><br>
I wish I could say the same for my sidewalks...

People like equinox are known as data freaks, and I am one of them too!<br><br>
I want to add my congrats to the rest on your long run florida. You must be getting ready to race again are you?<br><br>
For me it was an easy 40 min run/walk at 4/1, followed by 40 laps (1 km) in the pool in 25 min. I took it easy because I ran 8.5 miles, swam 40 laps and then walked about 9 miles yesterday. Legs were a bit trashed today, but still good for a few minutes of easy running.<br><br>
Currently in the Vancouver airport, waiting for a flight back to Smithers. Will be leaving in a couple of hours, so lots of time to check out other people's posts.<br><br>
Have a good day all!

I hope your sidewalks improve Buxtehude.<br><br>
As for the report, I actually and such a geek that I designed a database in MySQL 5.0 to store data from my runs, and then wrote a Java program to work with the database to allow me to enter the data and to produce reports like the one you saw above.<br><br>
I'd offer it to people or try to sell it, but it is far from ready for prime time.

Well, tried to do my 30 min on the mill, but I had eaten a sandwich about 30 min prior and it didnt sit well. So ended up doing 30 min on the bike. At least I got a bit of cardio in.<br><br>
I will be smarter about this tomorrow!

I woke up, scratched myself, and threw the covers off of me. Sat up, bent over and put my slippers on. Stood up, stretched, then ambled into the kitchen for a bowl of Raisin Bran.<br><br>
*whew*<br><br>
I have to dial it back a little before I burn myself out!

Wow... great runs and umm... efforts for the non-runners.<br><br>
Ran downtown along the Bow River. Cold and snowy, just perfect weather for the Hypothermic Half. I had forgotten it was today, and had thought that they ran it EAST along the Bow as is the case for other halfs, but this one ran WEST and was plowed all the way.<br><br>
I was a mile or so into my run when I met up with the winner of the race heading back in. For the rest of my run I was entangled with the race. Made it to the turn around point and added some distance, then returned and was bang on the mileage markers... started reeling in the stragglers.<br><br>
Darn, I should have run the race.<br><br>
Pokey, moi? Yeah, for the last two weeks, but I don't know where the pokeyness went today.<br><br>
14+ in 1:59:50. Felt good all the way, although the last mile was tiresome. Got to try out ULTIMA, and although I was a bit "rumbly in my tumbly" as Tigger says, there were no adverse effects. It fizzed in my water bottle though.<br><br>
Got to thinking that I ran the half today in snowy and cold conditions faster than my first ever half. And cooked food for the week, and walked a couple of miles with my son to get pictures for his photo essay and...<br><br>
here comes the crunch time of the training.<br><br>
Have good ones all.

2 hours 10 min on snow-covered trail with my dog. Beautiful day. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
I saw 2 hawks, 6 deer, 4 horses (and their riders) and one grumpy bird watcher. And lots of cool tracks.<br><br>
I felt very strong, it was a good run.

Tigger,<br>
I have 3 races in 4 weeks in March. On March 3 they are having a 5K fun run to open up the week leading up to the 30th running of the Gate River Run 15K. Then on March 24 I am doing the Guana 50 where i hope to redeem myself after last year's awful showing.
