Last week was probably the most intense training week I've ever had. <span style="text-decoration:underline;"><br><br>
The weekly totals were --</span><br>
27 miles running.<br>
271 pull ups<br>
105 weighted pull ups, +14.3 lbs<br>
555 push ups<br>
25 wall assisted handstand push ups<br>
116 chair push ups (use 2 chairs for the hands, a chair behind for the feet, allows the body to dip down lower and extend the range of motion)<br>
20 weighted push ups, +14.3 lbs<br><br><br>
I'm planning on a light and easy week for this one, hopefully close out the running year with a 5K on the 30th, that'll be weather dependent.

Scratch - my arms hurt just reading all of that!<br><br>
I'm off for a run at the lake (probably about 7 miles) and then I'm driving into NYC for a week long marathon of Bikram Yoga. I made the mistake of promising a friend I'd try it, but only when I had the time to really take advantage of their intro week special ($23 for unlimited classes in one week).<br><br>
Me and my big mouth....

Good Morning!<br><br>
Crazy week <b>Scratch</b>, nice work. I topped at just over 65 last week, but did absolutely nothing else.<br><br>
Easy 6 to get in this morning. These night football games are messing me up, especially when the Vikes blow it. Oh well, one more week of <i>hope</i>.

I'm like <b>JenRuns</b>, in that I did just about nothing other than running. And I didn't do anything close to 65 miles...<br><br>
Pretty soon, I'll be heading out the door for a 13-mile tempo run. These runs always kill me...

Hey, kids--<br><br>
Got out for 2.56 this morning. It hurt worse than Saturday, but this is what happens when I take off for so long. Ate like crap yesterday. I don't think that Oreos and potato chips are good pre-run fuel. Hopefully, I'll keep my motivation up and get out at least twice a week through the winter. It was 32* when I left the house, but the cold wasn't a problem. I'm walking to yoga in about .5 hour and praying that the family's Christmas present arrives today. If not, I'm sending out a ton of post-Christmas packages.<br><br>
Enjoy the day!

Nice Work <b>Scratch!</b><br><br><b>Prae,</b> you got out there, sometimes that is victory enough.<br><br>
I had a nice 6+ mile run last night, and I'm going to try to jam in 3 or 4 today at lunch.<br><br>
Is anyone beside me working today????<br><br>
Have good runs and a good day all!

Nice work Scratch. That's a big week Jen.<br><br>
This is from yesterday night's post:<br><i>I had 15 - 17 on the schedule today, but the holiday gremlins conspired to keep me from ever getting the time.<br><br>
The most time that I could get was about 2hrs starting @ 7:00pm. So, I got out for 13.1 miles. It was relatively speedy, but very easy. Ended up with 13.1 in 1:43:41 (7:55 pace). I'm please with that two weeks after the RCM.</i><br><br>
I ended up with 53 miles last week. And, I broke through 1600 miles last week. That's 1000 miles more than I ran last year! Still need to work on my year end recap.<br><br>
Good runs to all today. Today's supposed to be a rest day, but I might sneak out for an easy 6 if I can.

I'm supposed to cross train but that probably won't happen. I have time before I go to my parents house but I feel too lazy on this day. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>

Ditto. Monday is normally a running day for me, but I don't know if it will happen. I'll take my stuff up to my parents for a Weds run. It'll have to do.

I have not run since last Thursday <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> No long run for the week, so it lookslike I will be about 10 miles short of 1000 for the year.

i haven't logged a run, i don't think, since september. its been part of my 'i don't need another thing like a job' philosophy. i might start in january again. i might not either.<br><br>
today is a rest day on the schedule. i've got a puppy, however, who disagrees. we'll go for a walk (which will get on his nerves and get me the 'hey. lady. we ever gonna go??' look). I'd like to squeeze in a yoga/and/or pilates session. but don't know it that will happen. My dad just called to see if i want to go get coffee so I'll go do that and see what kind of time I have. Still have to wrap all my presents. That won't take long though.

Scratch,<br>
That is an impressive week of working out. I was still recovering from my marathon so now it is time to get going again.

<b>Scratch</b>...sounds like a rest week is well-earned and deserved - great job!!!<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br><b>Jen</b>, big week - congrats!<br><br><b>LH</b>, <b>Timr</b> wow....I'm uber-impressed at your year's mileage. Amazing...<br><br>
Sending good vibes to everyone in slacker mode...I'll be arriving there tomorrow....<br><br>
As for me, I'm home in MD and am obviously on <b>Prae's</b> fuel plan<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> Potato chips and pound cake and now I'm going to put my running clothes on... Today I've got 7 mi on tap through my old neighborhood. <i>The good news:</i> the weather is amazing, 45* and clear skies, and the deer are out to play! <i>The bad news:</i> my crazy army cousin has agreed to run with me for motivation and I think I might die....<br><br>
Have a great day everyone!

<b>Biah</b>, good luck with the army cousin! That cracks me up for some reason! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Rest day for me. Tomorrow, is my last run before the race. A nice 6 miler on Xmas day before the dietary carnage.
