<p>Good morning,</p>
<p> Just another sweaty run where I spent the final 1.5 miles having to deal with the urge to walk so I told myself the next sign post, drive way, light pole and then I would say next one and so on and so on until I was done. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a good day everyone.</p>

<p>FB - great job gettig it done!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I got out for exactly 11 miles in my new Gel Banditos. Ended being a progression run from high 8s to low 7s after I joined some buddies.  Low 70s and 80% humidity so summer is creeping back.  That equals a sweatfest.</p>

<p><strong>FL Boiler</strong> -- Way to talk yourself through.  Good job. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>RA</strong> -- Great job on the progression in tough conditions.  Another pair of Banditos for you, eh?  </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Me</strong> -- 70 degrees and 70% humidity today.  A bit of cloud cover to ease things.  Heading out for 9 here shortly. </p>

<p>Nice runs, way to play the mental game, FB.   Way to get out there early, RA, was it 11.0000 miles :)   Tuesday morning track for me with "Interval 3 x (800m-600m-400m-200m), @ 5K-10k pace, 1 minute recovery, 3-5 minutes between sets" on the schedule.   Wound up going a little harder than called for esp. for the 400s and 200s but felt good and ran the last 200 pretty much all out.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Set 1: 3:21, 2:24, 1:36, 0:48</p>
<p>Set 2: 3:19, 2:29, 1:36, 0:42</p>
<p>Set 3: 3:21, 2:31, 1:35, 0:39</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Yoga is on tap for lunchtime.  Have fun, all.</p>

<p>Good morning everyone.  I tried out my heart rate monitor today for the first time.  Not sure what any of the numbers mean yet.  5.60 miles in 47:39(8:30).  150 avg heart rate.  My feet and lower legs are now sore, so I probably should do some icing or sit in a cold bath to help the legs.  Nice job on all the running. </p>

<p>I have 400 miles on my first pair put haven't worn them this season.  I just got the 2nd pair for $50 from runningwarehouse.com.  I've decided to train more with them and race/ do speedwork in the Fastwitch.  However; the lighter shoes make my forefeet sore after 10 or so miles so will probably stick with DS Trainers for longer runs and the marathon.</p>

<p>Note for BBS - Chances is pacing me in the Chicago marathon on 10/10/10.<br><br>

<p>Well, the Garmin said 11.00.  Whether that was the distance I ran is another matter entirely.  Nice intervals.  I get to miss track tomorrow in lieu of a trip to Ravinia.<br><br>

<p>7x600 @ current 5k pace done. 5 miles total.  Pace felt kinda easy, but my legs felt like crap... guess from last weekends race and the progression run yesterday.  I feel like I am sliding into a running slump.. can't find my speed, can't even match where I was at last year at this time.  Maybe I'm crazy, but I was expecting to be FASTER this year compared to last.</p>

<p>Hey all...wow, some great workouts are already in the books this AM. I'm looking at an easy 8...packed a bag for this afternoon at work. Club mile and 3k track championship races are tomorrow night, so I'm looking forward to getting the spikes on for that.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Last night I decided the heck with an off-day and got out for a 10-mile trail ride. This weekend I'm hoping to ride 30-35 on the road bike.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Z, that's a helluva track workout even at a tempo-ish pace. I really like it. And RA, nice tempo run. It's almost time for me to start doing those again. Just one more 5k race, next week, first.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BBS - hard to bring your A game every day. Don't sweat it. But I do think you should space out the quality workouts a little more. Weekend race, progrun yesterday, speed today...no wonder you were sluggish today! Gotta stick some easy runs in there and let your body recover. Just sayin'.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>FB - way to tough it out in that humidity</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Chances - no wimping out on humidity after what FB got through. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>kevin - nice run, not bad numbers on HR readings. I find HRs to be most helpful on easy runs when I want to keep the HR in the 140s or even 130s sometimes. If I get up over 150 I then make myself slow down. You'll find your own comfort zone though over time.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Jill - you've been battling all sorts of nagging things lately it seems. Time for your luck to change.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Dan - rest if you need to.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>ETA: yesterday in the snailmail was my NYC Marathon "Getting Started Guide." It's almost that time again.</p>

<p>Morning--uh, rather AFTERNOON all!  Early morning for me.  Headed up to the metropark for bike hill repeats.  Haven't crunched the numbers yet, but it was a good workout.  20mi.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Quick shoe change at the van and off for a run!  Legs felt very good, which means I didn't hit the bike hard enough.  Had planned on 6laps, but during the 5th, my gut reminded me that I had the new gatorade on the bike and it doesn't like the new stuff.  So, dash to the POJ insted of the 6th lap.  7:12, 7:05, 7:04, 7:05, 7:04.  Total 4.15m, 35:32, 8:33pace.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Back home and mowed the lawn.  Had planned on doing just the front but after doing the side I realized I didn't ahve that much more to do, so finished it off.  Needless to say, I am DONE for the day!</p>

<p>Hi everybody.  Nice workouts today!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I did 10 miles today.  Maybe it wasn't quite so hot or humid, but it didn't seem that bad.  Or maybe it was that I ran with gatorade instead of water.  But I didn't need to take any walk breaks on the hills.  I definitely looked liked I'd been swimming by the time I finished, though.</p>

<p>Have fun at Ravinia.   Looks like I might have trouble for next week's Tuesday track, I got invited to the Cubs game monday night!  (please no extra innings... and I'm a Sox fan anyway :) )<br>

<p>I got in a 2nd run this evening, just a very easy recovery jog on the neighborhood 5k loop, followed by some upper body work using the resistance bands, and some stretching. 11 for the day, not too bad. </p>
