Did my 4.2 mile hill run (see below). 65 degrees and wicked humid. Wanted to get out there before it gets unbearable like they're predicting. Have a great day!<br><br><img alt="" src="http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c84/Arrojo/drawGraph.png" style="border:0px solid;">

Wow I wish I had a route like that...our biggest hill withing running distance is like the very first little part of that.<br><br>
Very easy practice tonight and then the long run tomorrow morning on nice gravel roads. Hopefully my calves loosen up today.

Morning everyone! Nice 12.25-miles in the rain. Hope it ends as we have a Blues-n-Food Fest Downtown this weekend. Hope to enjoy both!

p2r, nice run there. Apparently you're feeling recovered from the marathon? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>

Good morning,<br><br>
I did just over 5 miles yesterday evening. It was humid as hell, but besides that I felt good. No discomfort with the achilles. Tonight I have yoga class.

Woo! Great run today! It's still obnoxiously muggy so I opted for the treadmill. It's a cut-back week and today's long run was just 12 with the last 6 at MP (8:30ish). The 6 miles MP felt EASY. I didn't even notice my breathing, felt strong and relaxed. This is the feeling to shoot for on race day, and I've still got 3 months to nail it down.<br><br>
I am enjoying a nice little runner's high right now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

6 miles sharing the humidity with the rest of you. I did 3x5 min faster bursts because I was kind of bored. A girl across the street spied me as she was running and we had a go of it for around 60m. Then we turned different directions at the street corner. All in good fun.

Good running all! Yes, plenty of humidity this morning making my 4-mile recovery run a little messy.<br><br>
Keep them fun!

3 running miles for me this morning. I felt great, with just a little tension in my hip during the last mile. I think I've finally turned a corner and will be able to start adding distance soon. I plan to continue 3 mile every-other-day runs for the next week. If I'm feeling good at the end of next week, I'll add 1 mile to my "long" run. As long as I'm feeling good, I'll continue adding miles this way, one at a time - I'm <i>so</i> ready for this.<br><br>
Good running today, you guys.

Good morning!<br>
Travelling yesterday so couldn't post.. just too busy.<br><br>
Puddnhead run good millbot?<br><br>
Ran 5 recovery miles with Tory this morning, nice and slo-mo with 7 x 23 second strides thrown in in prep for tomorrow's 20. Two of the strides were done while Tory and I chased deer down the road. They are everywhere these days. It really makes Tory's day!<br><br>
Ever think the "Hacker" is an Active.com employee? hmmm<br><br>
This site has gotta stop that stuff cause I'd hate to go cold turkey. I felt like a nomad those days wandering around looking for a place to post <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

perch, I had the same thought yesterday about Active sponsoring the recent hacking. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Puddinhead has so much energy, about the only time she behaves is when we're running.

Good Afternoon Masters!<br><br>
12.25 seems to be a common run today . . . good runs!<br><br>
Runinbehind - great things are going well and it sounds like a good plan!<br><br>
I also had the same thought about who's been hacking . . .<br><br>
I struggled through a 22.2 miler today in 3:14:31. With the kids back in school now, I didn't get out until 8:00. After the first mile or two, I was already sweating pretty good and knew it was not going to be pretty. I had to start rationing my water/gatorade mixture early. I kept wondering where I could go in and ask for some water as I passed the fire station - only 1 truck outside, I passed town hall, my church . . . finally, I decided to go several more miles and stop at a friend's house - I knew the husband was going to be home today. Luckily, he was outside and they had some water bottles in the gargage. I don't think I would have made it without that extra water!! The last mile was a 9:00 mile which I barely could finish that. I stopped at the end of the driveway and thought I was going to throw up . . . I went to my neighbor's pool and got in - 72 degrees - it felt incredible! Feeling much better now after soaking in the pool and topping off with a chocolate milk!<br><br>
Now I need to get ready for my daughter's birthday party tonight - 7 girls sleeping over. . .

Perch - are you doing a fall marathon? You did a 20 miler with Pro and another on tap . . .<br><br>
Tammy - Good Luck on your 10K tomorrow!

Another one here with the same thought about the hacker.<br><br>
No run for me today - gotta save myself for tomorrow.<br><br>
Linda - I don't have my registration form with me today, so am not sure of the exact location of the start/finish tomorrow. Talent is not that big though and from what I remember last year, they have a little "harvest festival" shindig going on right where the race starts and finishes - I think it's by the railroad tracks. And since John is driving tomorrow, I didn't really pay attention to the exact location. With a town as small as Talent, I think it'd be hard not to be able to find. The race starts at 8 a.m. for both the 5K'ers and 10k'ers.<br><br>
Thanks Pink!!!

Morning all, nice runs everyone. Rest day for me.<br><br>
Tamster- I sent Rinda an email about the race location tomorrow. According to the sign up sheet it's the Talent Skateboard Park at Front & Main, which I think is a portion of the big park in downtown Talent next to the RR tracks.<br><br>
The thought of the hacker being part of active crossed my mind, but I think the takeover of CR is small potatos compared to the rest of their virtual vast corporate empire.<br><br>

Pink, nice job on finishing the 22 miler. The sun/heat makes a huge difference in how I run, too. Good thing your neighbor has a pool.<br><br>
Happy b-day to your daughter. (I hope you have a nice bottle of wine for yourself...something to take the edge off of 7 girls sleeping over! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> You might need earplugs, too - I say this judging by how loud my two girls can be sometimes).
