<p>This is the 40x40 thread for those who run at least 40 miles per week and are over 40. This is a great motivational thread and free passes are given out generously. If you do run a race and post a RR, I'll try to link it in here.</p>

<p>Thanks Dennis,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Little tardy here - didn't get on the internet while in Juneau.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Got back home late last evening after a great vacation of running, hiking, kayaking, beer drinking and food eating.  Well, plus a few other things too.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Last weeks total:  64.4 miles including the Frank Maier Marathon in 3:37:48.  (official times have not been posted yet).  Looks like I was 4th male master and 10th overall out of a field of about 45.  Beautiful running weather, breath taking scenery (views of a glacier and lots of mountains), good running company and a great BBQ afterwards with lots of food. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>This week is a recovery week</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Mon:  <em><strong>7.0 miles at a nice easy pace, some hills, legs tired but no soreness.   4 hrs of kayaking (approx 8 miles) was within 200 yards of 8-9 humpback whales while they were bubble net fishing.  awesome creatures when your at water level with them.  Takes on a whole new meaning..</strong></em></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Tues:<em><strong>  7.0 miles slightly faster pace than yeasterday along the same route (through town and along the water).  5 hrs hiking along the Mendenhall glacier and above Juneau. </strong></em></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Wed:  <strong><em>5.0 miles at a nice relaxed pace.  flew home</em></strong>.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thurs:  <strong><em>7.0 miles at an aerobic pace.  legs felt like lead after a couple of miles.</em></strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Fri:  8-9 miles <strong><em>- 9.0 recovery miles, slow and easy </em></strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sat:  5-7 miles <strong><em>- 9.0 miles still at a recovery pace but, just a little faster than yesterday.</em></strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sun:  13-15 miles <strong><em>- 14.0 miles, progession run, starting off slow and with each mile faster than the last one finishing at an aerobic effort.</em></strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong><em>Total: 58 miles<span style="display:none;"> </span></em></strong></p>

<p>Thanks for the call-out, Dennis.  Last week I had to reduce miles because of some intense racing at the end of the week.</p>

<p>Wed: 7.5 wood chip path</p>
<p>Thu: 4 at track, at snail's pace (very tired)</p>
<p>Fri: 7.94 including 8x400 at the track and a wood chip path run with EV later on.</p>
<p>Sat: rest, chores</p>
<p>Sun: 17</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Total....45.5! </strong></p>

<p>40.5 miles. My scheduled 10 miler went to heck when I gu'd at mile 6. I had instant stomach cramps and had to stop. Don't normally use the stuff, but I will gu once or twice during a half marathon, so I was trying to begin simulating the half marathon.</p>
