<p>Morning peeps.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I havn't posted in 2 days, since the format changed, it wont let me post via iPhone...?  Havn't ran since tuesdays 4 mile barefoot beach excursion... that was tuff,  blistered both of our feet up!  And it did a # on my calves.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Got back home last night around 7:30.  Gonna go for a run here in a little bit, maybe an easy 5 or 6.  Back to work tonight..<img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>

<p>Well, 15.5 miles for me this morning.  Felt good until 14.  Humidity not effecting me as much now that I've got my hydration sorted out.</p>

<p>15 miles for me this morning.  It went well.  I froze my water bottles last night and they were completely thawed by mile 5.  I can't believe it was 77* this morning at 5am.  I never checked the humidity but it was high.  I decided I would try and stay ahead of the dehydration.  I drank 32 oz (spread over an hour) before I started running.  Then I drank 3 - 4 oz every mile, it definately helped.</p>

<p>BBS- Beach running will kill the calves.</p>

<p>Happy Friday all...boy, for a short work week I sure am wipe out. Not sure what's up but I'm just dragging of late. I would like to done a double yesterday in the evening after the morning run of yesterday it just wasn't happening. I came home from work and went straight to bed, slept 2 hours, got up ate, watched TdF replay for a bit then back to bed...and then I slept in this morning.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I guess I need to hit the reset button over the weekend.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hot and humid here again today but not quite as torrid as yesterday...I am hoping to hit Manassas Battlefield after work for 5-7 trail miles.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nice job on all the hot running out there.</p>

<p>76mins for me with a few random pickups toward the end, followed by a grueling weight room session. I was already sore this morning just from work yesterday, but now my upper and lower body just ache.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Eating breakfast/lunch now, then going to nap and do work around the house until the festivities start up tonight.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Have a great weekend everyone!</p>

<p>I almost forgot to come in here today. Nice job sweating through the summer heat so far everyone.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I went out for some easy miles this morning with my pup. He was huffing and puffing and I wanted to keep going. For whatever reason, my pace was great today even though I was trying to keep it slower. Whatever. Still not in training mode but it's soon approaching.</p>

<p>Hey, all! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Been just dead-legged since Wednesday's fiasco.  Even yesterday's recovery went poorly, and today I gotta make it out there for 13 at some point.  Running's not fun this week.  There, I said it. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Lots to look forward to this weekend.  Minor-league baseball game tonight with my family, then tomorrow flying to Seattle to see <strong>TOOL</strong> with my brother at sold-out Key Arena.  Should be a blast.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>BBS</strong> -- Welcome home, and sorry 'bout the tootsies.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Mom</strong> -- Glad the boy is home, safe and sound.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Flounder</strong> -- 34 today?  All in a day's work, ho hum.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>RA</strong> -- Way to bounce back.  Nice one.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Kevin</strong> -- Good job.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Dave</strong> -- Smart hydrating.  That'll improve those long runs.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Hawk</strong> -- I know the feeling.  Just got the blahs.  Good luck resetting over the weekend.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Alex</strong> -- 76 minutes.  That's like what, 15 miles for you?  ;)  Have fun tonight.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Jill</strong> -- Nice run, and I hope a harbinger of things to come (as all harbingers are).</p>

<p>Chances-  Be careful with the hydration. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nice job out there today.  I just scrubbed the kitcen and bathroom floors and it was like a second workout with all the sweating.  Have a great afternoon.</p>

<p><strong>Chances</strong> - Tool... sweet!  I saw them in 1994 opening for Rage Against the Machine at the Brixton Academy in London.  I think I'd appreciate them more now.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've been dragging dead legs around since I got down to Hilton Head.  I tried <a href="http://www.gatorade.com/default.aspx#product?s=prime" target="_blank">Gatorade Prime</a> on a whime and actually think it made a difference.  That and decent hydration the day before and 1.5x the number of gels per distance run. ;)   I may get a few more for longer runs when it's hot and humid.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Alex</strong> - I was thinking of your mileage reports on my run this morning.  I'm pretty sure you're going faster than 8mpm and sandbagging us all.  So, dude, get a Garmin so we have accurate stats on you and can gauge appropriate comments.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>BBS</strong> - Any running on the beach does a number on your calves, if you are not used to it. Barefooting it will be 4x (random multiplier) worse.</p>

<p>Hi everyone.  I knew I would wimp out if I tried to do my long run in the heat of the afternoon, so I sucked it up and did 15 miles on the treadmill.  Glad that's over.</p>

<p>Rob and John - my laziness and poor time management this morning did not allow me to get my 15 in, but jebba and Dave did it and showed you what's up. ;) Hope your runs continue to be pleasant. I refuse to use a Garmin....I feel dirty even after mapping a run online, so I think I'll stick with time and rough estimates. With how slow my shakeout runs are, I wouldn't be surprised if my average was close to 8mpm. I guess the only numbers I'm trying to worry about are still 6-7 months away.</p>

<p>Alex, I like your philosophy.  It keeps you from stressing about each daily run as if it alone can predict future success.</p>

<p>Nice run on the trails at Manassas Battlefield NP tonight. I ended up pretty late at the office so by the time I got to the battlefield it was almost 8pm...only enough time for one loop before the sun went down. Too bad because I felt great. But I'm thinking long run or long bike ride tomorrow, so it's probably just as well that I only did one loop.  5.4 hilly trail miles in total right around 8:00/mile pace.</p>
