Good morning all.<br><br>
I didn't want to make the same mistake again this morning. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I can't believe how busy the daily thread was yesterday. That is exciting. Well heading out for a short fast run. The plan is for one mile WU followed by 1.5 miles at around 6:15ish with a one mile cool down or so. Don't know if I can hold 6:15 since I haven't run that fast in quite some time. Will slow down if I have to.<br><br>
Happy running all.

Good morning, everyone<br><br><b>David</b> Hope your run goes well. Wish I could run 6:15/mile!<br><br>
Another cold morning at 23F with a little more moisture in the air than yesterday. Ran 5.4 miles in 1:00:30. Glimpsed a falling star near the beginning of the run.<br><br>
Have a great Friday!

Richard - Have a good run later.<br><br>
John - Good run this morning.<br><br>
The temp here is right at 20' again. Great morning for a run. Put in 3.78 miles in 31:33. 1.5 mile run ended up in 9:03 or 6:02 m/m. I am very excited about that. I didn't lose quite as much as I thought, I still have a long way to go. <img alt="headbang.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/headbang.gif"><br><br>
My goal now is to improve that by 10%, down to 8:08 or a 5:25 mile.<br><br>
happy running all.

How did I know that Dave would be sure to post first this morning...<br><br>
WO- Nice run this morning- way to get team Q started.<br><br><br>
Yesterday went for an easy 6. Pretty uneventful, other than a little reminiscing on where I was at this point last year. I think my knee is structurally in a much better place than last year because the day after I first ran in snow last year, my knees were really in pain, but this year nothing.<br><br>
The plan is to go at least 7 tonight with about 30 minutes of core work afterward, but I might get inspired to do something stupid because of the VRAA- if I do anything over 10 tonight- be sure to give me a hard time about it.

Nice efficient workout, Dave. You gotta love it when you can quality in less than half an hour.<br>
Wandering, well done. If there's one positive about these short days, it's the stars on a clear pre-dawn run.<br><br>
Five miles for me today. It's actually my longest effort of the year so far (3,4,3,5), and I did it without stopping. I know I sound like I'm fresh off the couch potato program, and not a 27-year running vet, but I was in a pretty deep rut.<br><br>
I'll take baby steps out of it.<br><br>
Good runs, all

Good morning! SOme good workouts already this morning.<br><br>
Fishbowl for me this morning. I was having a really good swim until the weird guy shows up again. This guy gets in the pool and maybe does a lap every 5mins or so. Yesterday he got out when I did and then goes and does a deck change. Mind you, it's just the two of us in the pool... The way he looked at me this morning totally gave me the creeps so I left.<br><br>
I was so rattled by the whole thing that I changed and came home to do my neighborhood route. Ran it way too hard because I was pissed at that guy. The garmin is giving me 4.48, but I'm thinking that's slightly short. Anyway, did it in 38:59 for a 8:42pace.<br><br>
Hubby and the kids went on a field trip today. 13yo son is still here, but he's on the computer in the basement, so I doubt I'll see much of him today. I'm planning on doing some of the cleaning I meant to do over Christmas break.

I think you really need to report this guy. Just a thought, is he mentally retarted? He may not be all together there if you know what I mean.

4boys-- If you feel weird about the situation I would talk to the people in charge at the pool about it. You can never be too safe.<br><br>
No running for me today as I need a rest day anyway. Keep up the good running everyone.

4boysmom, i hate creepy guys!!! the ones that are subtle and nonverbal are the creepiest ones.. i almost feel slightly more comfortable around the talkers instead of the gawkers.

Oh, I did report the guy. When I first got there I told the guy at the desk what happened on Wednesday. He said that was way out of line. Of course, I didn't know the guy's name so they asked me to let them know if I saw him again. This morning, I got out of the pool, wrapped a towel around myself and went to the front desk. They figured out who he is. Not sure what they can do because he isn't a member.<br><br>
btw--I don't have a problem with deck changes. I've done 'em post race when I needed to get out of wet clothing. But, that's in a parking lot with lots of people around. This guy did it when it was just me there AND a locker room just down the hall...

Dave - Wow, 6 m/m, going for 5:30s. Good for you! BTW, you convinced me. I'll do a POTD soon.<br><br>
Outlaw - I love seeing shooting stars during a run. That's the best.<br><br>
Richard - Have a good run later.<br><br>
Mailbox - Rest. Relax. Don't push this VRAA thing too hard. Probably you should wait until February to really engage. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Baba - It's hard to pull out of a rut, so that's a great effort on your part.<br><br>
Flounder - superlatives fail me.<br><br>
Missy - That was quite a workout, too.<br><br>
4boys - I saw your thread on PRT on this same subject. I'm glad you reported the dude. I should think that if the loser isn't a member that the club could simply call the cops! Am I missing something?<br><br>
flobear - Good to see you and good luck on your run. No more being sick is allowed. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
kfuller - Enjoy the rest day. Come back strong this weekend. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Me - I forgot to bring me workouts to work. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> So, I'll do my little 3 miler at home along with some core (VRAA inspired core, no less). Weekend plan: 6 mi on Saturday, 12 mi on Sunday.

Mailbox - are we starting the trash talk already!!!<br><br>
Billy Go team J!!<br><br>
Today I was planning on lunch run, but my office looks like a bomb went off, so I am stuck in the office today.<br><br>
Change of plans to 5 slow steady outside tonight. Actually looking forward to outside run. It is still cold, but NO wind and I really miss running outside. Should be a crisp run<br><br>
ps.... should be around 60 degrees this weekend, go figure.

I forgot to bring my running jacket to work today. I do have a long-sleeve tech. So I'm thinking I should just wear that with 1-2 emergency cotton t-shirts over it. (I do have hat, gloves, pants). Temps will be around 30 degrees and it'll be a short (4.3 miles) run. Should I go for it?
