Okay, we'll try this one more time. This will be the third weekday in a row that I attemt to start a thread. If I get pre-empted again, then I'll know it's just not meant to be...<br><br>
Thanks for all the camera advice yesterday. I have been happy with my 4-year old Sony Cybershot. so I think I might just go with another one. I think <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=kickrunners-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FSony-Cybershot-DSCW55-Digital-Optical%2Fdp%2FB000M4J2LM%2Fref%3Dpd_ts_c_th_3%2F104-1650300-1059931%3Fpf_rd_m%3DATVPDKIKX0DER%26pf_rd_s%3Dright-5%26pf_rd_r%3D15V0SGJRYWA60GSDSZFN%26pf_rd_t%3D101%26pf_rd_p%3D236991301%26pf_rd_i%3D497268" target="_blank">this</a> is my leading candidate right now. Before I buy it, I'll find it in a store and try it out. We'll see...<br><br>
My run last night was fairly uneventful. A simple 3.3 miles at a 8:52 pace. No big deal...<br><br>
Well, it's another day. Have a good one, everybody...

Morning dear sweet <b>Roo!!!</b><br><br>
At work early cause I was up early dropping <b>Auntie Moe</b> off at the airport. Luckily that means I can get out of here by 2! Which is good cause one of my doggies isn't feeling well.<br><br>
Had a fabulous weekend in the mountains. Did a little run/walk combo Sat with my friend who is trying to bust back into running. And Sun did some hiking. Well, more than hiking I climbed a ridiculous number of stairs at Bushkill Falls, it was tough! Mon was spent taking the scenic ride home and touring Eastern State Pen, only got through half of it in 2 hours! Can't wait to go back to finish the tour. All around, I had a fabulous weekend!<br><br>
Got a swim on tap for tonight. Hopefully some strength work after that.<br><br>
Can't wait to find <b>Solar's</b> race report! And great pics from your hard core trail run <b>Mary!</b> There were tons of great photos floating around, good stuff!<br><br>
Ok, off to the lab. Happy Tuesday to you all!

Yeah, sure. Why not. Once again, choose the thread that someone else started right around the same time as mine... I might as well give up. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad">

I did my first interval session today. 1 mile warmup, then3X800m with 400m of recovery in between, followed by a cooldown of 800m. So 2400m worth, solidly under the 8% maximum recommended by Daniels.<br><br>
Of course, there are some things that only experience can teach, especially sense of one's own pace. Especially when you're running in the dark and fog too. I knew I bolted out too fast on the first 400m and was a bit dismayed when it split at 2:02, I then got myself back down more to where I wanted on the second half of the first 800m interval, but the effect carried over into the next two intervals. Oh well. It wasn't bad though and hopefully I got a beneficial workout in today.

I am a terrible patient. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/surprised.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Surprised"><br><br>
After you defend? You will need a killer party for that! Did you say you are only 2 hours from <b>Erie, PA?</b><br><br>
I ran 3 miles yesterday. Felt good! I think me and running are having a little make-up session this week.....make-ups are great!<br><br>
Good runs all.

Morning! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"><br><br>
Haven't slept well lately (it's a full moon, yes?) so I hit the snooze 3 times this morning, therefore I arrived to work just before the kids came in to homeroom... ugh. Good thing is, I have my prep first period! Yippee! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br><b>Bob,</b> I'm counting on your continued Bobcam pix around here, so you better make a good choice on that camera purchase! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br><b>phdatc,</b> apologies in advance, but I think I missed what you teach??? Sorry -- I should probably know...<br><br><span style="color:#008000;">Maria</span>, glad your LR went well -- I hate that it's getting darker earlier, too.<br><br>
Hey, <b>Duck</b> - I just got a msg that fares between PDX and PHL are $164 right now... I'm just sayin'... <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(come to Philly in Nov!)</span><br><br>

Good Morning! It's been a very long time since I've had a chance to post that. I'm glad to start feeling in the loop again, I've missed everyone!<br><br>
Tonya - any guesses on what the weather will be like for the relay? I was thinking it would be cold by the end of Oct in Michigan, but I didn't think it would be 95 now. I'm already an overpacker, it will be a mess if I have to account for too much variance in the weather.<br><br>
Later!

Buddy if i had any damn idea how to delete my thread i would be happy to do so. I think you, scratch and i are on the same AM schedule. Back at cool running we used to start all the time and I would just delete mine and re post. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

We love you <b>Bob</b>, oh yes we doooo!<br>
We love you <b>Bob</b>, and we'll be truuuue!<br>
When you're not near us, we're bluuuue!<br>
Oh <b>Bob</b> we love yoooou!<br><br><br>
(I couldn't type your name the way you'd sing it, otherwise we'd be singing to Booooob. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> A worthwhile cause, perhaps, especially for the gents, but I didn't want there to be any confusion.)<br><br>
No runs today. I have my class (the one I'm taking, not the one I'm teaching) and then volunteering tonight.<br><br><b>QODY:</b> not stretching, and taking too many liberties with my training schedule this time around (generally not getting in enough weekday runs to properly build my base).

Late Michigan weather: last year same weekend it was in the upper 40s-low 50s by the end of the race, BUT there was a 40 mph wind. The challenge this year will be the start time, 8 a.m. since daylight savings time doesn't end until November it will be dark at the start.

I'm going with <b>boB's</b> thread today. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
So, I set my alarm and then didn't get up for my run. I just felt like I needed the sleep. I'll get it in after work today. I fell asleep before the end of Monday Night Football, but woke up at 3:11am for a bit.<br><br>
I had a budget review meeting with the CIO yesterday, and now, I have a bunch of new reports to write for an 6 hr offsite meeting tomorrow on the same subject. Today, we have an offsite teaming event with the Columbia IT staff. Should be fun. We'll see how long I can stick around for that, since I have these reports to do.<br><br>
Well, I gotta get some breakfast and get some work. I'll check back into <b>Bob's</b> thread later.

Maybe <b>Duckgeek</b> can flex his mod powers and merge the two Tuesday threads into one?

Hey all:<br><br>
I think it is time Bob gets some love here, so I will post in his thread today.<br><br>
EZ 5 or 6 last night, first run pain-free in 2 months, so that was cool. I will keep it fairly easy this week and maybe do a workout toward the end of the week.<br><br>
Loved all the pictures yesterday, so I will add a few of my own.<br><br>
DS picking apples this weekend. WHO HUNG ALL THESE BALLS ON THE TREE??? (I can tell we will be hanging ornaments higher on the tree at xmas this year.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://tomjanofsky.com/images/luke_apples_07.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
Me & DD. We bought her this hat as a baby and she hates hats. She has never worn it except for the 5 seconds to take this picture and will probably never wear it again.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://tomjanofsky.com/images/tom_grace_07.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
I'm off to pre-school, today is DD's first day. But she went there last year, so she is an old pro. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Have a good Tuesday!
