<i>It's Friday. Let's get 'er going, gang!</i><br><br>
I managed a 5er while listening to SolarMix11. The best part was running into the courtyard of the Meadowbrook Hall mansion just as the Ben-Hur chariot race music was playing. The mix ended at the 4-mile mark, but I wouldn't have heard it anyway because my last return mile was straight into a very stiff, cold wind, with drizzling rain driving right at me. Meh!<br><br>
A good run, but felt good when it was over, too. Good luck to the weekenders, especially those in Orlando. That looks like something I'd like to try someday -- but not <i>both</i> events like some of you are doing!

Hey Roch and all,<br><br>
Rest day from running but some XT and a walk maybe this evening.<br><br>
I love being sore.<br>
Last night, despite a good recovery run in the morning,<br>
both legs were sore hip to ankle -not injured -just a hard sore.<br>
Maybe I'm wrong, but it tells me I've been somewhere and getting somewhere.<br>
Even though yesterday's recovery run still left me a little blah-zay.<br>
I'm feeling a small surge of mental/physical energy returning<br>
and hope to surf this through something nice and training-appropriate for tomorrow.<br>
If all stills bodes well, I may at Jess L prompting, return to the hills in prep for the<br><a href="http://extremeultrarunning.com/promise_land_profile.jpg" target="_blank">Promise Land 50k Profile</a> in late April.<br><br>
Have a great day runners,<br>
GO RACERS!<br>

Good Morning Boomers!<br><br>
The work thing is getting way outta hand this week. Much too busy to keep up with the postings.<br>
I passed my stress test on Wed with flying colors!<img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"> So whatever has been going on with this pressure on my chest is probably related to side effects of the meds. That's good news. I was beginning to think one of these days I wouldn't make it home from a run. Each day seems to be progressively better now that that's over.<br><br>
Today there's a cold, hard run (he said in his best Dylan voice). I can do cold. I can do rain. But I won't do cold rain. So it was off to the TM for 8 miles, made interesting with some interval work thrown in. (1:05:35, 8:12 avg pace).<br><br>
Good luck to all you racers out there this w/e. Run like the wind!<br><br>
Mike

^5, pain-free tomwhite!<br><br>
Happy 40th to lyndenrunner's DW!<br><br>
Hey Mike, not having heard from you, I was wondering how your test went and how you were feeling. Sounds like good news. Nice.<br><br>
0615<br>

Good news Mike!<br>
And TomWhite!<br><br>
Day off for me, goin to the bike club holiday party tonight. Might dance some, and call that cardio though for VRAA's sake.<br><br>
I'd walk at lunch but it's a monsoon w/lightning out there.<br><br>
Good workouts to all and don't forget to explore the rest of the site and check the front page from time to time.<br><br>

I'll be running 3 easy at lunch. JJJ-that sounds cool. I'm starting to plan my next 50k or trail marathon. There's one down here that's got 5,510 ft. of elevation change in just the marathon, and they also offer a 50M. There were several DNF's last year in both events. What the hell is wrong with me? Didn't I learn my lesson in my first two trail runs with big elevation changes? Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I'm a Maniac. Mike, that's very good news about the stress test. I know the relief you're feeling.<br><br>
I got an Astros calendar for Christmas. Today's MLB trivia question: "What was the first year that the postseason Division Series was played?" Hint: I guessed way too early. NO cheating.

Good Morning Kicksters!<br><br>
I think I figured out what to do with old dried oranges. I keep a huge pot of water on the wood stove downstairs to keep the humidity up a little in the house to avoid those nasty electrical shocks you get in the winter. I put those in the water, for a nice smell of oranges. I can see how some might find it useful to. For those that have <span style="font-size:medium;">"IT"</span> can play bobbin for oranges in boiling water.<br><br>
Thanks for starting Rochrunner. Jessie that looks like a great challenging course. I think that I would like running a 50k like that, one of these days. There is a mountain steeple chase in the late spring, "The Wahsatch Mountain Steeple Chase" that I would like to revisit, and I may do that one instead of the SLC Marathon. I actually ran part of that one years ago, but they rerouted the course because of torrential rain and washing out some of the trails making it too dangerous.<br><br>
Good Runs All, Larry

Hey, Larry - you might like the result if you pitched a handful of whole cloves in there, too.

Good morning to all you boomers in the US, good afternoon to Europeans, and good night to Aussies <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">...<br><br>
After a few days stuck inside, it was a welcome return to outdoor pursuits today, as the weather was so different, bright clear blue skies and hardly a breath of wind - still chilly by our standards, but a great day for a run. So, having finished my course at lunch time, I was able to get an early afternoon run in, 5 miles along Sandymount Strand, nice and gently in 41:56, taking in the waves lapping the sea wall, so gently they were almost whispering <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> - Days like this are what make running a joy -<br><br>
Barb - Just watch the alcohol intake tonight, or tomorrow will be ablow<br><br>
Mike - 8 miles on the treadmill - ARGH!!!!!!!!!! That's stress enough for me <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
To everyone else, enjoy, and to all the racers this weekend, have a great time.<br><br>
Liam

Good morning, folks,<br>
recovery day here, I will just go for a gentle stroll later somewhere between 1 and 2 miles. And grocery shopping...<br>
Nice to see so many dancing bananas bobbing around, it shows we are a happy bunch today<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">.<br><span style="color:#FF0000;"><b>Happy Birthday to mrslynden!</b></span> GFY for organizing a surprise party, let us know how it went, Gordon.<br>
Good news, Mike!<br>
TW, glad you woke up pain free today. I have been trying to figure that out, too (the sleeping position thang) but I move around too much. Any props and pillows invariably end up on the floor by the morning...<br>
I will pass on the orange bobbing thang, Larry <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">...<br>
Have a good one, everybody,<br>

So are those books that you actually own, or mainly a comprehensive list of every running book ever written? Or both?

Looking forward to our big racing weekend here on the board.<br><br>
No racing for me, either today or the rest of the weekend .... but I did manage to get in 12 this morning despite getting a late start.<br><br>
Off to work!<br>

Hey Maniac from Oklahoma, which 50k or TrM are you thinking about? Presuming I survive PL50k, I'd be ready for another 50k about early September maybe.<br><br>
Larry, you've got a strong, deep base, snowshoeing is only going to extended it, LV went fine. I'd say strike while the 50k metal is hot.<br><br>
Sal, those were beyoouteeful 200's yesterday, You'll be hot for the 8k no doubt.<br>

irunmike - Great news!<br>
roch - nice tough run.<br>
mb - nice easy 7.<br><br>
I haven't been on much this week and with just walking . . . Anyway, I was given the go ahead at 4 weeks to ease slowly back into running and by week 6, back to normal activities. So today was the 4 week mark! How does one work slowly back to running? So I planned a 1 mile walk on the TM, then was going to do 1/2 mile slow run & 1/2 mile walk three times with a 1 mile walk at the end. During my 3rd slow run, I had some twinges of pain by the hernia spot, so immediately slowed to walking and quit at 4 miles. I guess I should have only done 2 - oh well.<br><br><span style="color:#0000FF;">GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE RACERS THIS WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!</span>
