3 miles recovery on TM at 5-6mph with 1 minute walking break each mile...<br><br>
Nice run, Peter. It's good to feel strong on medLR's prior to races-a big confidence builder when running 90 minutes feels 'easy'.

Good morning all. We had about 4 inches of wet snow last night here in NY but it's melting rapidly today. I did 30 mins of a yoga class this morning before heading into work. I hate working the weekend rotation!<br><br>

I am so glad I ran my LR yesterday late afternoon and not this morning since I woke up with a head cold. 18 slow miles in snow free country roads. I ran among the apple orchards- saw three migrant workers and their families coming back to their shacks for their season work and I noticed that 2 orchards are being pull out (this is always a sad thing to see for me)<br><b>Peter</b>, good luck on your marathon<br><b>dtoce</b>, how did your run back home go last night<br><b>riley</b>, working on the weekend is not fun.<br><b>tamster</b>, it was so much fun chatting with you last night.<br><b><span>Go Racers!!!!</span></b>

Good morning everyone.<br><br>
A nice morning for a 10K race! I set a new PB of 48:53 finally breaking that 50 minute barrier! Here's the RR <a href="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/showthread.php?p=638261#post638261" target="_blank">http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/sho...261#post638261</a> .<br><br>

Wow, Dale, my office is 7.5 miles from my home, and I've only toyed with the idea of running to-and-from. You are inspiring me!<br><br>
Wet sticky snow falling all over this morning, so I took my run indoors. MP run: 8.36 miles in 1:09 (8:15 pace). Felt pretty good, for now! I've got a fast-finish 15-miler on tap for tomorrow to complete my 2nd 50+ mile week in a row.<br><br>

4 easy treadmill miles between 6 and 6.5 mph. After a round of golf this morning in perfect conditions. Too bad the swing wasn't as perfect. Only fair today.<br><br>

It was so cool. I know at least 3 runners here who had a good race today. You smashed that PB or PR! Mine was exactly 2 minutes (a little more according to Garmin), and my buddy Tim from church won his AG and came in 7th overall.

An easy 9.25 miles at 7:51/mi in anything <i>but</i> lamb like conditions. 42°F, rain, wind, and a brief hail shower.<br><br>
Off now to celebrate <a href="http://www.worldeventsguide.com/event.ehtml?o=191" target="_blank">Iceland Beer Day!</a>

Stop that, Labduck! I'm out of beer here. Maybe I can swing by the liquor store after I get a haircut, but I don't think they have Icelandic beer.

Nice runs and races today. I ran early with temps around freezing. 12.9 M @ 8:50 m/M. Lots of melting yesterday, and of course the puddles turned to ice overnight. Overconfident from successfully negotiating many icy patches, I slipped on one with half a mile to go (... Shall we run through the alley? Sure ...). I think the damage is superficial, but the outside of my left knee is getting the crushed ice treatment and ibuprofen is coursing through my veins.

Thanks for the reminder! Of course I needed my reading glasses to be able to see that tiny number in the date box. The reading glasses are still a new thing... I keep forgetting that I need them, let alone that I have them, and then don't understand why I can't see. <img alt="confused.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/confused.gif"><br><br>
No running today because I taught this morning and then had family commitments the rest of the morning until the mid-afternoon. I'm toying with the idea of giving up my Saturday morning class, if for no other reason that I haven't been getting much of a turnout. And even when a couple people do show up, their energy is low, like they'd really prefer not to be there. I had only one woman today who practically challenged me on every pose I gave her to do. Not fun. But how do you quit a timeslot just because it isn't particularly "fun"? Family-obligation-wise, it would be better all around if I didn't teach Saturday mornings either. I don't know. If nothing else, I'd much prefer to get an early run in for a change -- seems I never can do that anymore, because of all my teaching and taking classes. My best runs are when I can start somewhere between 8 and 9am. With my current schedule, there isn't a single day when I can run before 11am. And 6am just isn't right for me, that devoted and dedicated I'm not. I'm gonna have to think on this one a bit.<br><br>
Anyway, stay dry and safe everyone this weekend, and good runs to all!

I want to be more like <b>you</b>, oh butterfly woman...<br><br>
It went ok on my run home yesterday. Thanks for asking. I had a plan to get out of the office on time, so that I could beat traffic on the busy section, by sunset, but that didn't materialize as my last patient (an active 80+yo psychiatrist) told me of some 'breathlessness' and one thing led to another and after my exam and a plead to the xray dept downstairs to just do this one test even though it was 10 minutes after closing..., he was able to go home with a diagnosis of 'pneumonia'. (Ha! Who says cardiologists don't use their stethescope.)<br><br>
So I left late and ran in the dark on the dangerous road...very carefully, and with blinking lights, but I think I'll wait until it is lighter later before trying that again...<br><br>
Thanks for the props peeps. I need to get some mileage under my belt before that marathon that looms in April.<br><br><b>Congratulations on the fine 10K race, Paul!</b>

Rest Day,,,,followed by Hedonism - right there with you! tomwhite should really be my coach!<br><br>
Dale - we reset our clocks soon, so you will get another chance before you know it. I really love running home from work - my direct route is 3.5 miles (to the grocery store) and 5 block cool down from there. I can also head up to the river and extend it. It is such a nice way to relax before heading in the door and I am the recipient of many interesting and amusing comments from my colleagues.<br><br>
OM - do what is best for you - those who would miss this time slot will either take another class or take the tools that you have provided and create their own practice. Shame on that woman - keep in mind that however hard she was on you, she is most likely 20 times harder on herself.
