Slow start to the day, eh? Am I the only one at work? <img alt="dontknow.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/dontknow.gif"><img alt="sad2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif"><br><br>
Well, I had a terrific run on Saturday (21.75 miles, where my 21st mile was my fastest one), and then an off day yesterday. I'll be back at it today, most likely on the TM. I'll probably end up with about 7 miles of intervals. Good stuff...<br><br>
Happy runs to all..
I'm here!! Working while DH sleeps as he has the day off. Drats!!!<br>
V-belt broke on the tmill yesterday. Hoping company will overnight a new belt so I dont' have to run outside tomorrow. Thankfully, today is a stretch and strength day!
Good Morning!<br><br><b>Jill</b> and <b>Myron</b>, nice races this weekend! Nice run, <b>Tim</b>.<br><br>
All you Minnesotans, stay warm...my poor parents up there! It's been way too cold lately, I worry about them.<br><br>
I'm up and just about to get ready for my first run today...Mondays are always recovery doubles on this plan, pretty boring but much needed.<br><br>
This week is going to be a bit of a cutback and then I have Miami 1/2 on Sunday. I thinking of running it more than racing it. The weather doesn't look too great and this is a scheduled "easy" week. The A1A half in 3 weeks will be a better race to try for a good time, so that's the plan.<br><br>
I did receive an email this morning from the race that Brian Sell will be doing the full, so it should be fun to watch him finish.<br><br>
Have good runs today, everyone!
It's officially cold enough out there to freeze the balls off a brass monkey. I'm supposed to have a group run later but I don't know if I'll be able to talk myself into it in this. Brrr.
Today is my rest day, but I want to go run. We'll see.<br><br><a href="http://s168.photobucket.com/albums/u161/jillfo/running%20stuff/Chilly%20Cheeks%202008/?albumview=slideshow" target="_blank">Photos</a> from yesterday's trail race<br><br>

Still trying to wake up. I can see steam rising off of the pool at the gym. Makes me want to swim. I have a class in a little over an hour going to run some before it. Maybe I'll swim tonight.<br><br>
Don't worry <b>Bob</b> I'm working today too, just a shorter day, only eight hours. Following yesterdays what I'm gonna call fun at the job, today <i>should</i> be a breeze. Then again, yesterday <i>should have been</i> too.<br><br>
Hope everyone has a good Monday, good workouts to all!
Wrong answer firemanllgreenberg, I have dibs on the funk! But if you want to take the being lazy funk from me then you can have it. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">
Add me to the list of folks who didn't get today as a holiday off.<br><br>
Good news on my part - the knee issues from yesterday are "almost" gone. Yesterday morning, the pain level on a scale from 1-10 was around a 7-8 level. (though it was fine if i didn't need to stand up / sit down).<br><br>
Today? It's more like a 1-2. I'll walk my miles tonight instead of running, just to allow a little extra healing time for that tendon under the kneecap. as I figure that's the culprit.<br><br>
I did order that brace that I mentioned yesterday, just as a precaution. Hopefully it'll support the tendon enough so that I don't repeat this weekend's issue!<br><br><b>Jill</b> - nice photos! (and wow.. interesting hills!) Love the RD's comments on the signs!
Yeah I wish that were an excuse for me.<br><br>
Having access to both a home and gym treadmill doesn't allow me that excuse. Not to mention today is supposed to be a cross training day and I could do that at home or at the gym too. <img alt="roll_eyes.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif">
Dude - you sleep schedule and stress level have been cranked up a few notches in the last week. You will be fine.<br><br><b>Jill</b> - super pics, looks like an ass-kicker of an event.<br><br>
So I ran a 15 K yesterday. All in all I was pretty happy with the results.<br><br>
My goal race for the spring is the Danbury HM on April 6th. I want to break 2 hours there, which is a 9:09 pace. I went into this race in my highest mileage week since August. My goal was to try and hit that pace and maintain it as long as I could. It was cold - 19*, with a decent wind. It was also gloriously sunny, which helped mitigate the cold.<br><br>
I got through 7 miles at a 9:12 pace, so all-in-all, I felt pretty good about it. There was NO flat sections of the course - I was either going up or coming down. And between the 9 mile mark and the end (~.35 miles) there is a 100 foot hill. Bastids. Final time 1:26, a 9:16 pace. The hair on the back of my head was frozen. But it was fun.<br><br>
Today I have 4-6 recovery miles on the sched.
