<p>Good Morning,</p>
<p> Only 3 months of the year left!  My plan called for 6, my legs only wanted about 4 but I was able to get through 5.2x at a 9:07 pace.  There was a little breeze so I didn't notice the 98% humidity as much I have been lately.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a good day and good runs everyone.</p>

<p><strong>FlBoiler</strong> -- Glad you got a break, however slight, from the sticky air.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Alex</strong> -- Sounds like you had a good workout yesterday.  Speedy. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Heading to the track for my last speedwork of the cycle.  9 miles with 3 X 1600 at 5K pace.  And yes, <strong>RA</strong>, I'll count four full laps as a 1600, no matter what fudging my Garmin does on my behalf.  <img alt="wink.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//wink.gif"></p>

Tomorrow running unattached with the other grey-shirts and the team on the course where our conference is at thi year. Should be very interesting to say the least. Not really sure what to expect at all.</p>

<p>Good morning all.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>FB 5.2 sounds like a good compromise between your legs desired 4 and your plan's suggested 6. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif"></p>
<p>Chances good luck on the track.</p>
<p>Alex good luck tomorrow. Where is your meet?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I did my 10-mile mountain road run in the pouring rain. was dreading it at first -- but turned out to be a lot of fun once I got started. Parts of the roads were so flooded that I felt like I was running in a river and (thanks to the mountain) this river had a current <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif"></p>

<p>Good morning everyone.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I had a nice ride this morning of 26+ miles.  My buddy hit the expansion joint in the bridge and blew out his tire and put a flat spot in his rim.  I guess it is a good thing to have training wheels so it won't be too expensive to get a new wheel.  It could have been a whole lot worse.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Happy training everyone.</p>

<p>Nice running today, rain and all!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have to admit, <strong>loopy</strong>, I decided to skip my run today because of the rain. I've run twice this week in the rain and decided to give myself a break. That, and I'm taking it easy for Sunday's race. That said, I felt like you did during my run on Monday. I had a lot of fun running in the rain and really enjoyed it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>zrun</strong>, how do you like the BAA plan? As you know, I can never stick with one thing for too long before making a million personalized changes. That plan still remains the backbone of my personalized plan.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Go <strong>chances</strong>!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Okay, so I went ahead and registered for my first ultra yesterday. I'm running the HAT 50k in Maryland (March) and am currently trying to convince <strong>Hawk</strong> to meet up with me there.</p>

<p>FB - Glad you got a breeze for some relief</p>
<p>Rob - Have a great workout.</p>
<p>Alex - I loved social psych.  Hope the race goes well.</p>
<p>Loopy - Glad you got a "charge" out of that current.</p>
<p>BBS - Hope you're able to do the squeeze</p>
<p>zrun - Sounds like a wise decision</p>
<p>Dave - Yeah, that sounds like it could ruin your day</p>
<p>Jill - Enjoy your respite from the rain.  What's the BAA plan?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Will do whatever the body allows me today. </p>

<p>Flyby here...  Only 2500m in the fishbowl.  At least I think it was 2500.  I met with my pastor yesterday and was doing a lot of thinking.  Quite possible that I screwed up counting.  Hubby and I went out for dinner last night to celebrate our 20th anniversary.  Uh, my gut doesn't like eating out.  Wasn't sure what I wanted to do today, but son1 wanted to swim, so we swam.  The plan was from the gym I'd take him to where he could catch the bus.  We were almost to campus when I realized that I had forgotten to drop him off.  Oh well.  Took him the rest of the way.....</p>

<p>Good morning everyone.  I am having a sore foot today due to probably some tight calf muscles etc..., so today is arest day from running.  I am going to get some core work and stretching done to loosen everything up. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nice job on all of the running and such this morning.</p>

<p>It was a beautiful morning for a run... I have a SRD.  Damn you taper, damn you to hell!  Anyway, last night I went to track.  They were doing a mile time trial... why, I have no idea.  Well I do but I was just being dramatic.  Since I'd missed doing the 8 w/ 3*1600, a la Chances, I figured I could at least get in something VO2 maxy.  So it was 2*400 + 1 * 1600.  Splits:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>400s: 1:28, 1:30.  Basically I jogged in the last 10 meters so they are not very meaningful</p>
<p>1600: 5:35.  I have planning on 6:00.  I kept it smooth and picked it up a bit last 400 as other faded.  I could have gotten into the 5:20s but didn't want to push too hard.  I wish I'd hit the lap button after each lap.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>4boysmom</strong> - Nice ~2500m.  Congratulations on the 20 year anniversary!</p>
<p><strong>Dan</strong> - hope your body let(s) you do something.</p>
<p><strong>Jill</strong> - 50k?  Don't talk me into that...</p>
<p><strong>Dave</strong> - Nice ride.  For a moment I thought you said you ran 26 miles.  Good thinking on the non race wheels in training...</p>
<p><strong>zrun</strong> - take it easy!!</p>
<p><strong>BBS</strong> - you and your 400s!  Hope you get them done.</p>
<p><strong>Loopy</strong> - Stellar job on the soggy 10.  Did you take your floaties? I don't mind the rain until my shoes get soaked.</p>
<p><strong>Alex</strong> - I'm sure your do great.  Also, done any more scrumping?</p>
<p><strong>Chances</strong> - I smell a 2:59:59. Hope you hit those 1600s.  I actually wear my Garmin on the track as a stopwatch as my Polar has a dodgy lap button.  When I download the workout, the lap distances are actually correct... the map is not very informative though...</p>
<p><strong>FB</strong> - take what you can get!  Also, please keep that humidity.</p>

<p><strong>vash</strong>, BAA is Boston Athletic Association. They have some decent marathon training plans on their website.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>RA</strong>, you want to come meet us in MD? That might get <strong>Hawk</strong> to commit!</p>

<p>4boys - One of those mornings!</p>
<p>Kevin - Have fun with that core work</p>
<p>RA - I have nothing to compare those times with but they surely impress me.</p>
<p>Jill - Thanks</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>3.0 miles (switching to miles; bored with time) on a cool muggy morning with DEAD legs.  Felt good though to be able to push through the legs.  Even took a half mile incline that I've been avoiding.  Though my legs were not there the rest of me felt pretty good.</p>

<p>Morning folks.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's raining buckets here, has been for the last 12 hours. So my run today will be treadmill bound - I'm not crazy like someone else around here <span style="font-size:8px;">(loopy)<span style="font-size:10px;">. <span style="font-size:11px;"><span style="font-size:12px;">Some type of hill workout is in order - maybe TM-modified hill repeats or the famous Chances "Newtown Hills" treadmill workout. Of course it's famous, just ask him.</span></span></span></span></p>
<p><br><span style="font-size:8px;"><span style="font-size:10px;"><span style="font-size:11px;"><span style="font-size:12px;">Jill - re: the hat 50k thing, I think convincing my DW not to kill me is the harder part. I haven't brought it up with her yet. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></span></span></span></span> Actually she'll just roll her eyes and tell me I'm nuts. Looking at some of those race photos, though she may right.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Chances - what, how come no 1609m repeats? After all, those would be a FULL MILE. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/lol.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>FB - nice job with the humid. We of course are at 100% humidity today.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Alex - good to get an occasional race in even if you're gray-shirting (never heard that term when I was in college, you were active or red-shirted).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>loopy - livin' up to your screen name with that run.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BBS - good luck with the quarters</p>
<p> </p>
<p>zrun - definitely err on the side of easy at this point</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Dave - yeah, that definitely could have been worse. A tire can be replaced...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>4bm - nice swim</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Dan - nice job on the 3-some.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>RA - sweet mile time trial, there, you should be popping out some 5:20s post Chicago, coasting on all that fitness.</p>
<p> </p>

<p>l<strong>oopy</strong> -- Sounds adventurous.  Love the rain.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>BBS</strong> -- Good luck fitting it in.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Jill</strong> -- An ultra?  Wow!  I'd seriously think twice about getting mixed up with guys like <strong>Hawk</strong> and <strong>RA</strong>, though.  They're loners, rebels.  They have their own rules.  They don't play by anyone's rules.  Not even their own.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Dan</strong> -- Glad you made it out for a few. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Mom</strong> -- Nice swim. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Kevin</strong> -- Rest up. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>RA</strong> -- Very, very impressive 1600 split.  I'm quite sure that time is beyond me.  And hey, thanks for your vote of confidence.  Every calculator out there has me barely on either side of 3:00:00.  McMillan, for his part, tells me I have a full seven seconds out there to lollygag!  You're looking great for 10/10 yourself. </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Hawk</strong> -- Did you do the Newton TM run?  If so, I'll expect my royalty check shortly.  (Actually, I copied it from someone else)  <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif">  1609M?  Don't think I could handle the incremental distance.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Did my 3 X 1600 workout, with full 800 recoveries, on a picture-perfect sunny and completely still cool Idaho morning.   Splits 5:52, 5:51, 5:50.  Somewhat surprised, and very pleased with it.  </p>

<p>Wow, lots of good stuff going on.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am back from my travels and trying to get into the normal day routine again.  My runs have been late at night and not that much to write home about.  For some reason I had no problem getting up early and running on the beach in Hilton Head but now that I am home, it's back to the late night 9pm runs.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hopefully the rain will slow down and I will be able to get 3m in tonight.  Last night was a 3m run around town under street lights without the pup. </p>

<p>Sweet looking 1600s!  I'd probably be around 5:55 doing all 3.  Odd, I feel good on the track and have been faster than I expected but have been dragging badly on my solo morning runs.  As such it's hard to tell what will happen on 10/10.  I'm just hoping that I don't have another mile 22 slow down.  I feel that I blew a shot at 3:05 in 2008 and 2009.  3rd time lucky?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>McMillan only works from me from 5k to 10M.  I'm slow as molasses beyond that.  You have the ability to hold a fast pace over the distance, as displayed in Boston last year.  The training is there to be sub 3 and I hope it happens; however, I hold out hope that I'll torch you.  I'm 1 for 2 with Hawk, Tonya and Nirvana after winning the opening matches.  I'm not sure I could face being behind in the count.  Saying that, <strong>zrun</strong> will trot by me waving.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I may need to <span style="text-decoration:line-through;">steal</span> borrow that TM workout if DW BQs...</p>
