5.11 miles on the treadmill this morning, in 45 minutes on the nose (gotta sign up for these at my gym, and I eke out every last second of the 15 minute increment...). 8:48 pace. Followed it up with 2x11 pushups! My arms are feeling strong!<br><br>
LaT! Where are you? I was stood up at indoor track last night. *sob*<br><br>

Nice job Robin. We love strong Goddesses!<br><br>
No run for me this morning, as I was planning some easy speed work at the track after work. But DW tells me we have an appointment after work, so this looks like a rest day.<br><br>
Probably just as well. I fighting a losing battle with a nasty head cold that is showing signs of moving to my chest. This one may derail my Miami HM this weekend. Grrrrrrr <img alt="sad4.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad4.gif"><br><br>

Good morning all. Today's my long day at work and with my ambulance duty. I did 15 minutes of core & stretching this morning and that'll probably be it in terms of exercise today. Oh well, I'm sure my body needs the rest, although I do miss going to the gym. Tomorrow I'll be back there at 7:30am as usual.<br><br>
At least it's a bit warmer here now. It was around 10 degrees the past couple of days & now it's going up to low 30s. Makes a world of difference in my office (library), which has absolutely no insulation whatsoever. We all look like Michelin men with layers and layers and layers.<br><br>

Early morning, uneventful 12 miler @8:48 pace progression style 9:30 - 8:05. Tory ran the first half with me. It's easier to run faster without a dog attached to a leash <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> ... but he loves it..

Robin, next time you can call her up afterwards, and see if she's having a midnight snack of bon bons. If not, you'll still have the satisfaction of waking her up.<br><br>
I'm rowing after work. Yes, Soos, the rowing played a part in my PR. I can't stand being inactive for more than 2 days, though I'm not motivated enough to join the pushup challenge again. I was pretty pathetic at that anyway! I need some exercise because I'm having BBQ for lunch. Can't think of a better way to keep up my iron stores.

Assuming a decent weather day (a BIG if for sure), I was shooting for a 1:44:XX or perhaps a 1:43:XX - something where the average pace begins with a "7". That'll be tough though ...<br><br>

Nice running people.<br>
Fairly chilly this morning for my 10 miler (29 degrees)-negative split despite coming back up the hills-ran back with fartlek MP every 2 minutes-legs feel pretty good overall...

Bon bons! Oooooo, did someone say Bon bons???? Pass 'em this way, OK?<br>
.................I swear our department runs on cake and chocolate......... no wonder I'm having trouble keeping the weight off and am still breaking out at age 51!<br><br>
Came into our work gym early today and did a middlin-slow (for me) 5 miles on the TM, starting at 9:30/mile and ending at an even 10:00 to keep the HR constant. Wanted to do 6, but started late so bagged it at 5 and got up to my desk before anyone was wondering were I was.

(((Bill)))healing head vibes and protective ones for the chest. GL in your HM.<br>
Choovie, I sure hope you rested well last night.<br>
Nice running everyone. After vigorous foam rollering I did 5 on a sparkly snow covered track, 23F feels like 15, beautiful sunshine, at 10:48 (that's pace, not o'clock<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">). Feeling groovy. Pushups and grandson curls to come. Is anyone going to see Spirit of the Marathon? I'm looking forward to going to it with a running group tomorrow.

Another cold, clear day in Seattle. Looking forward to a run in Discovery Park and maybe some rowing post run. Question: I can only row about 10-15 minutes before my bum/hamstrings start screaming. Typical when starting out? This would be my third, maybe fourth time.<br><br>
Good workout with the group last night. 3+ mile warmup, 4 mile tempo (gawd, getting sick of tempos...) and 1 mile cooldown. Schedule, training (whatever I'm doing these days) is all helter skelter. I even added some cycling in the other day.<br><br>
I'm behind reports and what everyone is up to. I took some solo R&R on a nearby island and was computerless for a few days (nice) and haven't any idea what even happened in San Diego. I will try to catch up today.<br><br>
Good runs/xtraining today, folks. Enjoy the gift of today.

<b>Soundrunner</b> - sounds like you enjoyed some quiet time away. What island did you go to? When I lived up there, I would sometimes escape to Lopez for a weekend. A pilot I knew lived out there and since he was gone often (airline pilot), he would let me use his house for some R&R. I loved it!.<br><br><b>{johnny}</b> - I know that is a very tough decision to let your employees go.<br><br><b>Econo</b> - I'll be up in Eugene March 13/14 for a CLE. Staying at Valley View Inn. I'm done Friday at 4 p.m. and probably won't join the CLE til about 9:45 a.m. on Sat a.m., so as the time gets closer, if you'd like to meet up for a run that would be nice. You'll probably just have to slow down a bit for pokey me. <img alt="huh.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/huh.gif"><br><br>
I'll be running after work. Probably won't be able to make the yoga class I was planning on though, but will do some at home if I can't make it.
