<p>Morning all.   Just under 50 degrees and strong N winds made it a bit nippy this morning.   6.5 ez miles this morning and probably 6 more tonight.<br><br>
Tomorrow morning suppose to be about 40 but little to no winds so it should be good running.<br><br>
After Euphie posted yesterday I decided to go look again the "boomer introduce yourself thread".  It's amazing how many people have passed thru.  Many only posted a few times but their were a lot of names of people who posted here for a long time.  I don't see them posting on any of the other sites either.  I miss most of them.  :)</p>

<p>I had to go look through the first few pages of the introductions thread, too. So many that have come and gone!   Sigh!</p>
<p>Speaking of which, where's Mike wandered off to?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>3 semi-decent miles at lunch...... only one other turned up for the running club, a young woman from our payroll department.  She humoured me and stuck with me while I gabbed.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Had a bit of a chuckle before I went out, reading a rather tersely worded email sent by another of our team to the same brain-dead co-worker. </p>
<p>Seems I'm not the only one she's managed to piss off. <span><img alt="biggrin.gif" id="user_yui_3_4_1_8_1320951375352_160" src=""></span></p>

<p>I'm sorry to not see Fred here.  He once wrote, "If you think you can't, you won't." and that has always stuck with me.  I hope all is well with him.  Rain turned my ride into a run.  Just 3 miles today.  I should have thought about doing more.......</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks for the re-welcomes.</p>

<p>4 minutes left on the lunch hour - jumping in to say hi so you don't think I'm AWOL too - 8 mile tempo run last night, with 2.5 miles at 10 mpm.</p>
<p>I know it should be faster, but...hey, I just don't feel like it right now<span><img alt="coffee.gif" id="user_yui_3_4_1_8_1320959497780_160" src=""></span> </p>
<p>I'll have to catch up with everyone's notes another time. TTFN.</p>

<p>Tom - I'll bet it was a new 9 iron<br><br>
Euphie - Fred kept up the 50+ thread for a long time.  But we got down so low of responders that we could go days without anyone posting.  Fred just stopped showing up one day.   I see him post on other people's threads on FB once in a great while so you could probably find him there.<br><br>
HIya mia Happyfeat</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Rip - I recognize a ton of those names and many on the boomer introduce yourself thread are different from your list.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>weather is gorgeous today.   high of 70 and a slight breeze under mostly sunny skies.  do I sound like a weather guesser?</p>

<p>Wow...what a list rip...I sure miss a lot of those people although I do see rindaroo & Tammy regularly in real life.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Got plastered orthodics in 3-5 weeks....I hope the $375 is worth it, but I'm not holding my breath.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>4 miles in the woods today, seeing a little improvement in the 6 days I've been back at running. 5 weeks with no aerobic exercise is certainly showing it's effects. This makes 12 miles for the week FO, but I'll be tied up all day tomorrow in Portland for a continuing education seminar and have to work Saturday, so it's only one more day of running this week, best I can hope for is 17.5 miles for the week. So, the FO-Johnny challenge may be yours.</p>

<p>You'll be back quicker than you think Johnny.</p>

<p>I finally got to the Mohican State Forest to run some trails.  Its only 35 miles and 50 minutes away but I don't think they really had that much trail until the mountain bike path was done in the last few years.  My cold went down in my chest a little so I wasn't sure how long I was going to go but I had an out plan of 4 trail miles and a couple on the roads if I was too tired.  It turned a little cooler and was in the mid 40s so I ran in regular sweats with a hat and gloves.  Didn't push the pace but kept it steady.  I could really feel my cold on the uphills but when I got to the road at 4 miles, I felt good and kept going.  After another 4.5 miles of technical single track, I turned onto a hiking path by the river that would take me to a covered bridge where I would take the road back to my car.  The hiking trail was double wide, flat and easy and I got lulled to sleep thinking it would be this way the whole 2 miles to the other camping area where I would pick up the road.  After about 3/4 mile though I almost lost the trail as it suddenly turned into very technical single track covered with rocks, fallen trees, and right next to the river where a wrong foot plant may end up being a 5 foot fall into the water.  I was also starting to wear down by this point so I put safety over speed until I got out on the road.  Once out on the road, I had a mile to the covered bridge.  When I got over the covered bridge I had 3 choices to get back to my car.  I could take a hiking trail that was 2.3 miles, the mountain bike trail that was 3 miles or the road which I estimated to be 2 miles.  I decided on the road.  I knew I was probably going to have a climb but I never imagined how much.  I started up the hill and kept going and going and going.  Every time I turned the corner of a switchback, there was more hill.  It finally beat me and I stopped to walk after I had been running about an 1:40 minutes.  I walked 2 or 3 minutes until I caught my breath and started going again.  I ended up being not that far from the top  and soon got back to the car.  I had to drive that hill and see how long it was.  1.4 miles with 400-500 ft elevation gain and 9% incline in some areas.  Total for the run was around 13 miles in 1:44 plus a little power hill walkiing. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I still only did 1/3rd of the 24.5 mile mountain bike trail so I have plenty more to go before I complete it all. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'll have to wait until sunday to see if I do the 14 mile trail race.  If I feel as good as I did today, I'll do it but not go all out.</p>

<p>What's the B&B, Rip? So was the Mohican State Forest worth it scenery-wise? or were you working too hard to notice?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I dunno know what to tell ya Johnny - but for me, orthotics were sooooo worth the money. I've been wearing them for 10 years now - in fact, I can't run without them. Everyone's different though. They certainly solved my plantar fasciitis problem.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Put the second coat of primer on the cabinet door fronts tonight; so will be ready to paint this weekend. What a long drawn-out process this has been!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hey Heme - I got my first normal TSH test in 5 years today! whoo hooo - think I'm finally stablized!</p>

<p>Boomers & Beyond is what they call the masters section at coolrunning.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Scenery is always great as I drive though Mohican every once in a while.  Hard to really watch much as technical (and leaf covered) as the trails were.  I did see a large white-tail</p>
<p>deer and for 10 miles I had the trails all to myself.  I only stumbled once and trip-roll-recovered once which I thought was pretty good considering the leaf covering.</p>
