Good Morning Hally & Liam -<br><br>
Went for a 5 miler - still recovering from Friday's LR. Didn't feel too bad except for a sore shin.<br><br>
Johnny - my husband got a kick out of your picture on Friday!<br><br>
Nice race Perch! 15 min. PR is big.<br><br>
Looking forward to JJJ's . . .<br><br>
Have a great day everyone!

Good morning, everyone. Nice day for a bike ride here, too, Hally. It's 63F right now.<br><br>
I went out for a 4 mile run this morning. It was a progression run...only the wrong way! 9:04, 9:48, 10:11, 10:35. I deliberately paid no attention to my paces because I'm trying to just go out and run these days. (I'll work on speeding up when I've built back up some endurance). Unfortunately, it seems I started out way too fast, although it <i>was</i> downhill. (I'm a pretty regular 10 mpm runner). I was feeling disheartened when I finished over how tired I felt and how much fitness I've lost. At least now I feel a little better because I know I just ran the first two miles too fast.<br><br>
I had a pretty bad dog scare this morning, too. A big German Shepherd appeared out of nowhere, running up behind me barking. I screamed...first in fear, then in anger, "Get the F#$ck out of here!" He stopped in his tracks but didn't stop barking. It took me the next 1/2 mile to get my heart rate back down...really scared me, sheesh.<br><br>
Liam, I'm off to read your RR. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Good morning!<br>
It's heading to 90's today, first day of fall <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"><br><br>
A muggy, sweaty 5 mile recovery run with Tory. Averaged 9:40 pace with AHR 145. There was no soreness in my legs or feet today <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> They just felt like lead.<br><br>
Runin.. Starting out real slow makes for a fast run. Progression run are my favorite (not the backwards kind <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">) Good job stopping the dog. Shepherds tend to chase you down and bite.<br><br>

Happy first day of fall to everyone. May your falling leaves flutter into one big self-raked pile, and your fall clothes not have fallen victim to moths.<br><br>
runinbehind......change your route so you meet the dog on your final mile or two. That'll help with your kick.<br><br>
Nice racing perch and tripleJ.<br><br>
Hally.....watch the sinful stuff on that ride.<br><br>
If I had finished off my run yesterday in proper fashion, I too could have gone out and enjoyed a nice long bike ride today. However, I had a lousy run, and I'm going to go back out this afternoon and repeat it. So, 9 miles again today, in the 90 degree stuff. That'll teach me.

10 miles less and 10 sec/mi slower than pbj... oh wait, he's on that other running web site <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br>
all smug about not being passed by an 11 y/o in yesterday's 5k time trial, i was passed by two 11 y/os today. yes, the amazing walter was out running again, with his younger sister. they were only doing 4 miles, although his dad told me walter had done 6 earlier with his club. so i chatted with him for 1/2 mi, told him i'll always remember him passing me in the tucson 5k, wished him good luck with his training. he asked how far i was running and i nonchalantly said 18, which got a wow! back from him. then with 1/4 mile to go, his little sister started sprinting, and they both dropped me, grrr. i high-fived him and told his dad to take care, and ran my final 6 with more sproing.

Bummer! My post didn't come through. It's a beautiful day here in NY and I ran for 30 mins at the gym while DH took a spin class. Then we took the dogs to the ritzy dog park in Ridgefield, CT (about 20 mins away). Here's a link to the pics if you're interested:<br><a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/riley0003/September2007DogPics" target="_blank">http://picasaweb.google.com/riley000...ber2007DogPics</a><br><br>
This was the last run of the 2nd week of the 60 min running program. After next week, I can start increasing my time running. However, today was tougher than Friday and my legs felt kinda leaden; don't know why at all. Oh well, some days are like that I guess! Now DH is watching the Yankees lose to Toronto and I'm going to read a book after I dremel the dogs' nails.<br><br>
Have a great day, everyone. Good runs to all!<br><br>

Good One Bear Morning to you.<br><br>
Walter's younger sister now, mc? How humbling. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Pie, just patch up those moth-eaten duds and get some more wear out of them. Guess you're not thinking about wearing sweaters right now, hmm? Take it easy in that heat. Ugh.<br><br>
runin, hang in there. Steady as she goes.<br><br>
Ran into my friend Mr. Mountain (I'm not making that up) at the Terry Fox Run last Sunday and we decided at long last it was time to get out for a run together (he's doing Chicago in a couple weeks). We both like the trails and he's lived here most of his life so knows his way around.<br><br>
We met at the cemetery at 7:30 (6C brrr) and zig-zagged over and under the highway until we headed off-road. Less than 100 metres from the highway, I spy some bear scat. Dum bear; there's big trucks 'round here. Thereafter, enjoying a hilly sun-dappled trail and catching up on things until we hit the Trans-Canada trail, lovely cool dips with overhanging branches, smell of cedar, and open patches where the sun warms your legs (well, my mountain man fren had tights on ... bah!), when suddenly Mr. M says, "Whoa!" Less than 400 metres away, a middling sized bear. It turned to face us -- can I call that a charge? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> -- we watched and backed away slowly. It was far enough away that I didn't feel scared, but it meant going the long (ugly urban) way home.<br><br>
So a planned 12-miler turned into about 17.5. It's sure nice to see these creatures back in the bush where they should be. But I don't want to be its pic-a-nic basket, Boo-Boo.<br><br>
Perch, JJJ, Liam, I'm off to read your RRs. Darn guests got in the way of online time yesterday. And possible work at 1 p.m. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Morning all -<br><br>
I didn't get out there yesterday, it was a me & DD day. Started with her soccer game & ended with us both falling asleep on the couch while watching CARS.<br><br>
Today I got on the TM. I just had a feeling that the last 2 weeks of dust problems took a toll. So, my goal today was just to get some air flowing into the bronchials. Sure enough I was right.. I walked 23 minutes & still couldn't get past 2.8 (meaning I was still breathing out of my diaphragm). So decided to try Tom's 4/1.. ran 4/ walked 6.. uhh guess that won't work. So, I did 2run/2walk for most of the last 20 minutes, with 3R at the end. Finally, was breathing better at the end. So, thinking I met my goal of getting more air in there.<br><br>
Now I'm wondering if I should just do the C25K at this point..... it would help me to gradually increase instead of pushing too hard when I shouldn't.

Good long runs, you guys!<br><br>
40km on the bike today in bright, sunny, breezy, fresh autumn air. Best bike in, like, ever, even though I took the hilly waterfront route and didn't actually go that fast when I look at the stats. Phooey on the stats. I had a great time. Autumn rides are even more precious, because with each one, I'm thinking, "this could be the last nice biking day until April." So each one is a gift.

Hi all, Liam, read your report, you have a realistic view of where you are and hopefully will surprise yourself. At the very least you will have a greta time in Philly. Eat a cheesesteak.<br>
Pink, hugs to the shin. Runin, glad the dog didn't get ya eek. SS, you did the right thing turning the other cheek on that bear. PJ, glad you are into punishing yourself for your bad behavior <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br>
34.75 miles on the bike, it was too easy. I think I may need to move up a group but I enjoyed it. Then I hung out in a chair on the beach for the remainder of the afternoon.<br><br>

Hello to all,<br><br>
No wildlife sightings for me. The first weeks of fall are my favorite time of year. Unfortunately, it's also hunting season, so I stay off the trails behind my property on the weekends this time of year.<br><br>
4 miles progressive (10mm to 9mm) on the TM after a half hour workout.<br><br>
Marie, you've got some balls, taking on a charging German Shepherd. Remind me not to get on your bad side.<br><br>
tomwhite, any grand daughter pix yet.<br><br>
Rinda, maybe you should start the C25K again if you think it'll help, you probably don't have to start at the beginning, just enough to be ready for our date at the Pioneer 5K in November <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">. Hope you're feeling better<br><br>
