Well I got a nice full day of sleep yesterday...I think I was sleeping by 10. Practice will be a few mile trot for me tonight, then help out at the junior high meet.<br><br>
Altoids...glad that is all that happened. Sounds a bit like something out of a movie. An accident turned into some gymnastics move...whodathunk it?<br><br>
Have a nice day.<br><br>

6 easy miles with 2 miles on the track - trying to nail down Sundays Marathon Pacing Pace - Its an inbetween - rarely run speed for me. I am sure the garmin nazis will keep me in line.

Alex -<br><br>
Well that walk absolutely pooped me but I raised like $70 I think. I ended up running for 1:06:10...15 laps and at 0.64 miles a lap, that's 9.6 miles...at a 6:53 pace. I started a bit fast but from the start to the end, my pace per lap went down about 20 seconds.<br>
Well I knew I wasn't going to have the super meet I was hoping for, I was just fatigued. Went out way too fast the first lap, and then relaxed too much on the second. 1:16, 1:24, 1:23, 1:22 (5:26), 1:21, 1:22, 1:22, 1:18 (5:24). The opponent absolutely crushed me, by about 200m I'd say...I really hope he sticks with his plan of not running the 3200m at Regionals though. I also really hope that with a fresh set of legs on Monday that I'll be down in the 10:30s again. Oh ya...total time 10:50 for 2nd place...I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm disappointed with my time, even though I am almost certain it was from the hard miles earlier that day that slowed me down. I wouldn't say I'm depressed, but it definitely dampered my view of Regionals I have going on in my head, even though I know I shouldn't let it...I just want to not feel so tired.<br><br>
You are definatley a runner through and through - Stop being a head case - You run 9 sub 7 miles and then are a little flat for a meet a few hour later - Peeking is a mental and physical thing - You ran a 10:50 after running 9 sun 7 miles - I still believe that you can run a 10:2x at regionals - you are a 5 star lock for a 10:3x, but I know when rested you will accept the pain to outperform.<br><br>
Read it! - Believe it! - Do it!<br><br>
Then after track season - sluff off and put on 15 pounds so I can beat you at Pittsville.

6 easy miles on the TM, knee seems ok, broke out new shoes today, just to try out, even though the others had less than 150 miles. The pain moved, so i am taking that as a good sign <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Yesterday did my little 5K in 30:39 and beat my previous time by 2:13. So, not like I'm fast or anything, but I felt good.<br><br>
Today is a rest day. Tomorrow or Sunday is my 10 mile run day. Last longer run before the 1/2 marathon.

Hey now! I resemble that remark. Four recovery miles this morning in ideal conditions (54°F and sunny). Just like yesterday morning, I listened to Tales from Topographic Oceans on the MP3 player again. Talk about a runner's high!

I ran 3.4 miles of a planned 5 recovery before I succumbed to "issues" that were non running related. Let's leave it at that.<br><br>
Good runs all.

10 miles today onthe treadmill, 9 of them running at easy pace (9:10ish). I combined my scheduled 6 & 3 miles runs to accommodate my weekend schedule. My foot was/is slightly achy at the very end, so it will get TLC all day! Ice and love.

Hey Alex -<br><br>
I am so out of tune with track-n-field. Regionals - Sectionals - State ? Is that the order of meets? How many from regionals make sectionals? Sectionals Make state?<br><br>
When / Where is the state meet?<br><br>
Are there any automatic qualifiers for state meet? Like running a sub 4:30 1600 or somthing like that?<br><br>
Educate me - Pleeeeeeeeaaasssse !

I ran 5 miles of hills in around 40 minutes or so yesterday at lunch.<br><br>
Today I'm supposed to go run at lunch with my speedy co-worker. He just ran his debut marathon in 3:00:11. Not bad for 39 years old! We're going to run the 5k route used by a local hasher-sponsored race in a couple of weeks, the Steep Hill Chase. Should be fun.

Thanks Alex<br><br>
Taper continues - 45 minutes nap @ Lunch - I would have much rather run, but the nap was rather nice <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Wow, a very strange day for me. Mr jebba has the day off, so he got up with Miss S and Little Easy. He brought LE for me to feed at some point, and the two of us snoozed for quite awhile. I got up at close to 11! I haven't slept in that long since probably college. Then I got up and promptly ate 3 bowls of cereal. I don't know what's gotten into me.<br><br>
Anyway, an early afternoon "long" run, very relaxed: 6 or so miles in 68:50. *yawn* And now I'm ready for a nap. Heh.

today was a much needed rest day as will be tomorrow. My legs are still sore fro the race on Sunday. Right leg feels like perhaps a gentle shin splint (almost completely recovered I think), left leg feels like a pulled hamstring (still very sore and painful).

Threshold day today. I was up at 5:30 to get my two extra large timmy's. After downing them I got ready to run and went out to greet a beautiful cloudless day with the sun rising slowly over the City of Kamloops. I headed West on flat road, running easily. Splits were 6:00, 5:30, then into the threshold portion with 5:19, 5:15, 5:17, and 5:15. Then a couple at 6:00 to cool down on the way home.<br><br>
At 9 AM I went out for a long bike ride. Went 24 km North in an hour and a half. Then 13 km of rising road along a creek in just under 2 hrs. It was very slow due to the hills, which rose a total of about 1500 feet. Then back down and home in 2 hrs, for a total of 5.5 hrs for about 75 km.<br><br>
Long run tomorrow.<br><br>
Oh yeah, those threshold splits were for km, not for miles!!

Hi all,<br><br>
The plan tonight was to do 11 miles according to the Pftiz/Douglas plan. I decided to make up for some of the miles I lost on Wednesday. I did my 13.2 mile loop. Unfortunately due to heavy rain during the day today, I had to do it on pavement. I wasn't about to go stream running again.<br><br>
So at this point, I'm just 0.8 of a mile off of the weekly plan. I haven't done as much trail this week as I would like, but that's probably not going to change this week.<br><br>
Here's the data:<br><br><b>Daily Run Report</b><br><br><b>Date:</b> 05/18/2007 <b>Time:</b> 16:30<br><b>Run Type:</b> Just A Run<br><b>Distance:</b> 13.2 miles<br><b>Total time:</b> 01:59:26.9 <b>Average Per Mile:</b> 00:08:40.1<br><b>Course:</b> <a href="http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=447770" target="_blank">Home 13.2 mile loop</a><br><b>Max HR (for entire workout):</b> 162<br><b>Average HR:</b> 151<br><b>Shoes:</b> Mizuno Wave Rider 10 - 05/2007 <b>Date Entered Service:</b> 05/08/2007 <b>Ending Mileage:</b> 57.6<br><b>Weather:</b> Cloudy.

Tonight the plan was 11 miles, but I wanted to make up for some of the miles I lost on Wednesday. So I did the 13.2 mile loop.<br><br>
Left ankle was sore after the run. Not sure why.<br><br><br><br>
I needed winter gear tonight! Hat, gloves, long sleeve mock turtle-neck, winter tights, etc.<br><b>Run Segments<br>
