7.5 miles this morning. Over to the local park, then 13 laps on the .55 mile path, then back home. Started in the dark, then got to see it get lighter.

Rest Day for me too!!<br><br>
But i didn't log yesterday. So for Sunday I did 6.3 miles in 1:10:53. Continuous run it seems that i am officially off the run walk thing. Also I have been out at least 4 times a week for a month so far. My average pace has dropped from 12:06 to 11:05.<br><br>
I am actually starting to feel like a runner again.<br><br>
Good Runs to all.<br><br>
Peace

Well, after resting up yesterday after Saturday disappointment (see report), I went out tonight for a 5 miler along Sandymount Strand. Didn't realise till I turned for home that I had a stiff breeze behind me on the first 2.5 miles, and I ran back into the headwind. Something must have been working, pride maybe, but even though I was running within myself, I completed the route in 37:29, some 45 seconds faster than I have ever done before -<br><br>
Hopefully this has blown away a few ghosts, and seeds of doubt from Saturday - Here's hoping <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>

Congrats to EQ and everyone else who ran this weekend, glad it went better than my effort.

Nice efforts everyone! Keep up the great work.<br><br>
Today is a scheduled off day from running. Tomorrow I have a 2-a-day with 6 miles bright and early and 4 miles tomorrow afternoon. Tomorrow morning is on pavement, tomorrow afternoon is on trail.

I hour recovery pace tonight. Sheer misery. It was still in the high 80s and as humid as possible. My stomach wasn't behaving well either. After 45 minutes I stopped in a local restaurant and begged for some water which they kindly obliged. I gulped it down and then put the ice in my bra. That helped.<br><br>
At the end I was sopping wet and my tired legs felt a bit loosened. That's the main thing.

I'm surprised no one noticed this <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> I did that during the Falmouth race, some spectators were handing out ice chips. Lovely!
