sorry to hear about your pup sally and your cat lab. i had an evil petsitter accident on christmas a few years ago and had a dog run over... stinks. best wishes through these times.<br><br>
if anyone's gonna write the manual it's gonna be scouchi. we just need to work on the chapter about yoga and stretching. according to my massage chick yesterday: "you're so tight, i don't know how you actually run." gotta do something about that. back to the manual.

morning kicksters,<br><br>
slept in till 8 a.m.! Usually up by 4:30 to run at 5:30. What a luxury today was. An easy 6.25 miles this morning to recover from yesterdays' run.<br><br>
Enjoy your weekends<br>

Off day for me after last night's seven miles. I think my foot has a hangover: it hurts all over and just wants to lie around and do nothing today. Too bad that's not going to happen. Thanksgiving is at our house this year, so we need to do the shopping, and the cleaning, and anything else Mrs. Labduck wants or needs.<br><br>
ksrunr, congrats on the overall individual VRAA points championship. You did us masters proud! And nice going to all the other masters who contributed through the entire 43 days. It was fun, put I'm kinda glad it's over for now.

Good morning masters. 0810, 45f, 6.6 miles. And it didn't start raining until I got home! Great run. Off to shower and go to a huge craft bazaar. Have a great weekend all.<br><br>
Sorry to hear about your pets Sally.<br><br>
Labduck - I've heard ice, ibuprofen and beer makes all things better, especially any kind of hangover!<br><br><br>
GO BSU BRONCOS!!

MC, I hope you're as excited as I am about your run tomorrow. Keep us posted, details.<br><br>
DW and I left the house maybe 7am.<br>
Had my new Sat morning breakfast of 2 eggs, creamed grits, toast & jelly, cereal with whole milk, OJ and water.<br>
Then we did a lite workout at the gym for 30 min.<br>
She had some shopping to do so I headed down the Creeper Trail to the house on foot -about 8 miles.<br>
I took a bottle of Succeed Amino with me -- since I might need some extra sustenance. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br>
I walked the first mile or so since I didn't want to run that far. It had warmed considerably, probably 35*.<br>
This is my once-a-week-just-for-fun run, no watch, HRM, or GPS --just listen to music, stop and chat with the cows, fartlek if sprionky, whatever.<br>
At about a 1/2 mile, a group of 30-somethings passed me headed out - they were loaded with fuelbelts and water bottles. I knew they were going long. They said about 20.<br>
Today I took pictures of all but two of the trestles between town and the house.<br><br>
Put me down for about 6 waddlely miles.<br>

Morning all, sorry to hear about your dog, MS<br><br>
7.42 rainy miles in the woods this morning after a late night out. Saw John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers AND the Dave Mason Band at the Rogue Theatre last night. Kinda of strange combination, but it was a good show. Mayall's 72 years old, still tours and releases a new album every year. Most famous for having Clapton, **** Taylor, Peter Green, etc. in his band at various times, but the current lineup with Buddy Whittington kicks ass too. OTOH, Dave Mason seems content to rehash his old hits and stuff from early Traffic, which is cool, the crowd was way into it and on their feet all night. Party on dude.<br><br>
On my way to take the out of town company down to the redwoods.<br><br>
Labduck- If that loss to Az wasn't a testimonial as to how important one player is to the current team, then nothing is. Dixon won't have a chance at the Heisman now, but he certainly is deserving of the award.

contemplative run today with the first 5.5 in memory of young Mr Shay-a man I never met yet am inspired now more than ever...totalled a double of 5.5=11 miles. Solid miniprogression with negative split despite the 'back' including the uphills.<br>
Thoughts drifted to the many people I've known, taken care of or lost and how fragile life is. And yet by the end of the run I was envigorated and glad to be alive and kicking. Smiling that I am here to enjoy all that is around me.<br><br><br>
Enjoy the gift...as has been said so often...<br><br>
(Go SKIP!)

Our public broadcaster, CBC, has this show in 15 minutes (Mountain Time ... probably again later Pacific Time):<br><br>

Off day for me after yesterday's 7 miles. I think my butt (piriformis) has a hangover. It hurts all over.<br>
I got mail. Thanks mc.

Good late morning Masters.<br><br>
Sal - I'm so so sorry about Storm. Storm is not just a dog. I would give my dogs extra big hugs today . . . but well, they smell like skunk, so I'm trying to keep my distance.<br><br>
Sounds like a good show last night John.<br><br>
Went out for a 10 mile run this a.m. with a friend who is in her taper for CIM. She didn't have a very good run and was really doubting her ability to handle a marathon in 2 wks. She's done a long run of 24 miles and felt good during that. I tried to reassure that it's normal to not feel as well during your taper mode and begin to doubt yourself. Not that I would know this from experience, but seems like that's what I've heard from other before. I think she's really getting burned out on running too. She doesn't LOVE running - but she does it to stay in shape and eat ice cream (her words). So, I think the heavy mileage she had been putting in is taking it's toll on her mentally and she's probably anxious to be done with so much scheduled running all the time. I tried to assure her she'll still do well at CIM and she'll surprise herself with her ability to do 26.2.<br><br>
contrary to her experience though, I enjoyed the run. Her chocolate lab was with us and is a great runner. I enjoyed the conversation and the mild temps of upper 40's and the light rain felt great.

Quick post before I'm off to shower and run some errands. Thanks to Rose and TripleJay for the vacation ideas. Will look into those more closely later <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Rosie, we'd love to see you and Ralph again too!<br><br>
I ran 10 miles with pal Jen this morning. Took me nearly 5 miles to get my left calf loosened up but then my legs felt terrific. Fun run!

I had yoga this morning and boy was it tough, but I felt like a million bucks afterwards.<br>
Tomorrow's my 5K turkey trot, which I'll probably have to walk/run due to my calf still rehabbing. Unfortunately it's supposed to snow, and if it's heavy, I'll just go the the gym instead. We'll see. Keep your fingers crossed for me.<br>

I'm not going to repeat the tomwhite line about hoping FF's butt feels better. But I do.<br><br>
I was looking forward to the first group training run for the Knoxville Marathon today. As it turned out, I should have just slept in. There was a decent turnout, maybe 40-50 people, but not one single person running my pace or distance. So, shortly into the run, I decided to cut it short and just go longer tomorrow. Six chilly miles with temps in the upper twenties.

10K run with my coach and another master who is running the Seattle Half.We started out at a 7:40 pace and my legs felt heavy,so I thought I had slowed down for the 2nd mile,7:20 what???,3rd mile 7:30???.So I just went with it,the longer I ran the better I felt and left my coach and the other guy for good after 3.5.Ended up being a little quicker on the last mile and finished in 45:27,7:19 pace.Pretty good for training run with no races in sight...

I like thinking like Dale does sometimes. It's bittersweet but, oh so real.<br><br>
PieJonesy, Sure hope tomorrow is a better running day for you.<br><br>
Rindaroo.<br>
Please advise me.<br>
5K breathing re-cap:<br>
mile 1 increasing wheezing<br>
mile 2 maintaining an expiratory wheeze, unable to expand the wee bronchials with the pursed lips breathing and blowing out.<br>
mile 3 Mamaruns is passing me (she should've been passing me earlier) as she goes by I say, "I'm wheezing."<br>
She says: "uh huh"<br>
I say: "Go get Brenda." (Brenda is a wonderful runner not in our age group)<br>
mamaruns goes.<br><br>
I stop wheezing. No reason.<br>
During the homestretch, I heard a mom cheering her son to "Kick it in! Run fast!"<br>
So I figured I'd give him an old lady to chase... he never caught me. heh heh heh.<br><br>
Anyway,<br>
Wondering about the inhaled steroid versus the Foradil?<br><br>
p.s.<br>
I like football.<br>
I am a Buckeye living in a Hokie Nation (and working at W&M) and loving every minute!<br><br>
DS1 is at the Hokie game today. Lilmissrosie came home last night instead of staying for the game.<br>
Yay Virginia Tech!<br><br>
(Thanks Sans Souci!)
