Good Morning Sleepy Heads!<br><br>
Chilly out here this morning in CT. When I left, it was 23 degrees out. My face and hands still feel cold. 7 untimed, slow, stiff miles. Later today, my son's outdoor team has their last game - a friendly one against the parents. Ought to be fun!<br><br>
Good runs/bike rides/etc. to all.

Wishing fleet feet to Gin and Labduck today! Labduck, I predict you'll run sub-36.<br><br>
Rest day on tap for me.<br><br>
I hope you have a peaceful Sunday.

Hee hee, you're a funny guy!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
I also am sending good wishes to Gin and Lab for speedy racing today.<br><br>
I'm lounging about here, contemplating all the stuff I need to get done today after church. It's downright balmy this morning and would have been a good day for a run...but I'm taking the day off to rest my weary legs after yesterday's effort. (23 degrees, Pink...sounds really cold. I'm not ready for that kind of cold yet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad">).<br><br>
I just had our treadmill serviced about a month ago since we've now had it for 2 years and done no maintenance. The service guy told me it needed a new motor (it had been making a whining noise, but I just blew it off). The motor was under warranty, so I was glad I had the maintenance done. Anyway, he came back and installed the motor on Friday...so I'm ready for the bad weather when it hits.<br><br>
Good running (and resting) today, gang.

Isn't Labduck doing a 5-miler today? Am I overestimating or underestimating the Duck's Super Powers?

I think I read that Labduck wanted to run 35:00 for his race today,but I'm betting he won't be able to slow himself down enough...33:30

long pants, jacket, gloves, hat...all at once. but a beautiful sunny day.<br>
12M or so, part of it lost in the wildlife area. 1:45 for time.<br><br>
I like this slacking month. This week I ran 6, 5, and today's 12. All easy.<br><br>
CRAig

i think labduck's time will depend on the number of sandwiches racing.<br><br>
same temps a millbot... one of my running pals actually wore gloves (hey, we're sensitive here in the desert). started a smart 18 miler at somewhere near 9 min pace and finished with some quick ones at the end... much better than my solo effort last weekend where i started too fast... running with people pays off in so many ways.<br><br>
tomwhite, your post is useless without pictures. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Nice running MC and Pro<br>
45 on the spinner and some corework<br><br>
Tom you're right....I'm feeling old and sorry. No wind rushing past my cheeks, lurking in sunless shadows, mulling through a meanless silence. Another week off the trail and I'll be ready for the wood chipper.<br>
But MC's right, please make sure you have a camera next time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
have a great day!!!<br>

I want to run where tomwhite runs when it' s 34 degrees. nice hh outing sir. How is Claire?<br><br>
I see hippo has committed to a 12 hour run which he deems a "sprint" event. In the south, we have a phrase to describe his type....we say "that boy ain't right."<br><br>
pro....lost? it was only a scheduled 4 miler? Nice run.<br><br>
nice run mcsolar......see, people are good for something<br><br>
I plugged Lab's variables into my computer last week and gave him his finishing time. That should have resolved the matter.<br><br>
Pink....nice run. When you gave the temp of 23 degrees, it made mentioning the stiff, slow part unnecessary.<br><br>
I'm going to do 5 or so miles later this afternoon with a friend who is coming back from an injury induced layoff. The sad part is, i'll still have to push my normal pace just to stay in his comfort zone. grrrrr<br><br>
I better go check the race reports and see how everyone fared. Have great workouts today and othewise enjoy yourself.

Even I didn't wear gloves today & it was in the 40's <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> well cooler than yesterday, but still warmer than the last couple of weekends.<br><br>
I did a 3.5 mile run/walk (2.6 of it running) today. I had planned to do an easy 2 or 3 miles, but for some unknown reason I picked the hilly part of the bikepath. So, I walked when I needed to... since 1) didn't warmup properly & it took me a long time to warmup up the bronchials 2) body just didn't like those hills... probably due to pushing a little yesterday at the 5K..<br><br>
But hey at least I stopped when I needed to, and even though I wanted to make it an even 3 for the running at the end, I maintained and walked an extra mile to the car after I turned the Garmin off.

Nice runs everyone! I also wore gloves today. Brrrr........I don't think I'll write a RR for the 5K I ran so I'll just post the details.<br><br>
My time: 22:37 1st OA female/1st AG ( gotta love these small hometown races. It's all about who shows up. ) I am thrilled with my time. I wanted to run under 23:00 and I did it!!! Hurray!!! Great conditions, great course....a fun day!

5 mile race today...and the winning number is....34:16 (6:51/mi)! 20 OA, 3 AG.<br>
I was pleased by this effort. The first 4 mile splits were all around 6:58/mi, and the last mile at around 6:30. I didn't hold anything back. The two guys who beat me in my AG were guys I normally beat, but I suppressed my competitive instinct and let them go. Live to race another day...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/cool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Cool"><br><br>
My foot felt fine during and after the race, but my hamstrings are a bit tender. But it's a good pain. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Along with the 5 mile race, there was also a 2.5 mile competitive walk. Mrs. Labduck was the overall winner! She got hardware for it too. I'm very proud of her.
