<p>Good morning all.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>10 miles on the canal path for me this morning. Saw a huge snapping turtle floating in the canal. Other than that, pretty uneventful, but pleasant (although a bit warm again today).</p>

<p>Loopy - now that's something I have never seen on a run. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hit snooze and got through 3.5 miles on the treadmill before abs class.   Raining here, but weekend looks like ideal running weather.</p>

<p>loopy--I envy you being able to run trails.</p>
<p>zrun--nice job on the dreadmill.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Major suckage for me this morning.  70* and stupid humid at 6:30 this morning.  Only 12 on tap for today, so opted for the neighborhood route x3.  And since it was only 12, I decided I didn't need to worry about nutrition/hydration.  Okay, 'nuf said...  I was holding about a 9:00pace until m10, then things just fell apart.  Walked it in from m11.</p>

<p>zrun-Running in the rain is optimal! It's awesome!</p>
<p>loopy-great job this morning.</p>
<p>Mom-sometimes you have those. Glad you got through it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Did work in the weight room again...not sure what's up next week, but circuits are really helping m mental toughness right now. Plus I think I'm packing on more pounds, but they always seem to disappear once I go back to normal lifting. Either way...I am feeling quite strong and am starting to keep up with the sprinters I lift with!</p>

<p>Morning...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Loopy - What is a snapping turtle?</p>
<p>zrun - Nice going with the TM and ab work.</p>
<p>4boys - I love it..."only 12" </p>
<p>Alex - That workout you posted yesterday sounded cool but killer.  Your brother a Pharmacist? </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Regular rest day today.  Started the increase in meds yesterday afternoon which was not such a good idea since thyroid meds make you feel wired.  A little trouble getting to sleep.  Started full new dose today. Should take 2-3 days to kick in.  Regular rest day today.  Should be back at it manana.</p>

I got forced to hold over again, but luckily on another rest day. 15 tomorrow, which will be a distance PR, then every long run from here on out will be also

<p>Woke up to a lot of rain and wind.  It was bad outside too.  Anyway, headed out around 6:30am and got in 6.4 miles.  70F w/ 98% humidity as per weather.com. Felt like crap.  Earlier this week I must have slept funny I have a very sore middle to upper back but just on the right side.  Today it'd spread to the front.  Great.  Feels like I've been in a car crash.  Anyway, slogged it out.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>BBS</strong> - soon 15 miles will not seem so far...</p>
<p><strong>Dan</strong> - I bet you'll get a lot done...</p>
<p><strong>Alex</strong> - just make sure you neck isn't wider than your head.</p>
<p><strong>4boysmom</strong> - snap on the weather!  Not so on the distance.</p>
<p><strong>zrun</strong> - yep, it was nasty out.  I considered driving to the gym and running on the TM but decided to sleep another hour instead.</p>
<p><strong>Loopy</strong> - I remember the good old days when you ran 8 miles every day.  I guess 10 is the new 8.  The other week, I saw a turtle crossing the road a long way from the river.  Seemed to be heading towards the bus stop.</p>

<p>Good morning everyone.  My run today was tough.  I need to work better on the pre run hydration etc...  I have done this route before, but I just felt dead until the last 1.5 miles.  6.5 miles in 57:37(8:51).  Well the run is done and I can now relax for a bit and recharge. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Dan-  I hope the meds help out.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nice job on all the running and such in the rain, sunshine and other such weather. </p>

<p>Good morning everyone!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Some good runs so far this morning.  Hot and humid here just like most of you all.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My nutrition was way off this morning or I guess I should say probably yesterday.  My eating habits has been horrible lately.  Anyhow, 20 this morning, I ended up bonking during mile 17 and by mile 20 I was down to walking tenth of a mile and then running 1/2 mile.  It was bad, but it is in the books.  average pace: 8:10.  Better today than race day. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Happy training everyone.</p>

<p>Morning all,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Another hot day here today, and I'm still in rehab mode. So I am hoping to take up Jebba's advice from earlier in the week and hit the fishbowl sometime this afternoon. That is, if I can get away from the office, where a bunch of issues are snapping at my heels like that turtle Loopy saw. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/huh.gif" title=""> If I can escape, I'll try to put in 40-45 minutes of consistent laps, for however many yards/meters that is.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Dave - sweet set of wheels!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>kevin/4bm - nice job on the runs, way to tough it out at the end</p>
<p> </p>
<p>RA - yeah, nice "fall" weather we are having</p>
<p> </p>
<p>BBS - good luck on that 15 tomorrow!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Dan - Enjoy the rest day, hopefully you can relax</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Alex - you keep hanging with sprinters, and now it sounds like you're starting to look like one...planning to pop a 200m PR this indoor season? <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/lol.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>zrun - nice little run. I don't mind running in light rain. Heavy downpours can get a little tiresome after a few miles though.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>loopy - 10 on the canal path, as sure as the sun will rise and set.</p>
