Wake up everyone.<br><br>
10.07 miles of hills @ 9:11 pace. A foggy start to the day here but I realy can't complain about the weather, it's been great so far this winter.<br><br>
Nice running yesterday, especially the racers.

Good morning Kickstars,<br><br>
I feel pretty good, maybe better than that.<br>
I feel like I've finally recovered from that #%^&*@, I mean that wonderful 5K on NYD.<br>
Feet/ankle are better than usual.<br>
Weather dreary, but life is goot.<br>
First rest day I don't feel like I need in a while.<br>
Maybe a 2 mile walk if i get round to it.<br><br>
Rest<br>
day<br>
ahh<br>

An easy 3.2 miles as the day's snowfall was just starting. Finished before it got too slippery, so a good way to start off the work week.

Mustang, I was thinking this morning: A three minute 8K PR is a big deal. The fact that your race was on the same weekend as some longer races is no reason to downplay your accomplishment. Your penance: Step out onto your porch, stand tall with hands on hips, and shout, "Hey, I just ran my best 8K ever, a three-minute PR! I rock!" Then go buy yourself some new running gear.<br><br>
Good run, Peter.<br><br>
Good resting, JJJ. <img alt="icon_salut.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_salut.gif"><br><br>

Six easy recovery miles this morning. I ran Ash hill x2 plus a few strides to stay ahead of the snow plow.<br>
Off to work now.<br><br>
Happy recovery to the last weekend racers.<br><br><b>Talk about the effect fo peer preasure</b>. During lunch today... I miss...I hate doing push ups...s<span style="font-family:'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-size:medium;">uccumbed into the unthinkable and did 10 girl push ups and 3 boy style. Why do men always have to make things much harder?</span></span><br><span style="font-family:'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-size:medium;">I added so weights, plunks and launches while I was at it.</span></span>

Bill, I don't know Pedro, is he a PCA member?<br><br>
BTW...the PCA is holding the <a href="http://www.paradecharlotte.org/" target="_blank">Porsche Parade 2008</a> in Charlotte this year. Registration opens on Mar.11 on the website. It's a huge event and there's rumor that Porsche AG will be bringing Porsche No.1...the first P car made.<br>
If you're planning on being here for the week long festivities, let me know & we'll do some running together.

Good Morning Kicksters!<br><br>
Nice runs there Peter, Millbot, Roach, MariP. Scheduled rest day for me today, which works out well since its snowing pretty hard up here right now. I picked up a nasty chest cold over the w/e. I felt it coming on but decided to do my LR anyway yesterday (14 miles, 2:02:32, 8:45 pace). Well, that run knocked me on my a$$ for the rest of the day. I think I'm just gonna curl up into a little ball and go back to sleep now.<br><br>
Sally, congrats on your PR. 3 minutes in an 8K is huge!<br><br>
ttfn,<br>

Indeed, you certainly rock.<br>

I'm going out for a dash now and <i>I'm</i> gonna yell "Sally <i>roooooohhhhhhcks</i>" from the highest point. (millbot, you're a prince.)<br><br>
Hey, doodz at the top, does that car come in a <i>hybrid</i>? Bonger, I've been thinking about you and wishing I was on your VRAA team so I could harass you in the nicest way possible. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Mike, <i>really</i>, take it easy, would ya? You too, JJJ.<br><br>
Aija is gonna kick some serious boo-tay in this competition. Just watch.

Could you spell out the challenge for me, please? I haven't been keeping up. How about a "most improved"? I haven't been doing any but maybe I'll take this as an opportunity to start!!<br>
Thanks

I'm on his team and would be glad to pass on a message or kick him in his <i>super mega bad ass</i> for you.<br><br>
MS is not allowed to enter a single pushup into her spreadsheet until she posts a RR that we can all reply to--a big PR at the particularly painful 8k distance calls for a collective celebration, possibly involving a conga line of dancing bananas.<br><br>
I thought about yesterday's racers and outstanding training runs as I swam 3000 yards this morning. One set of 5x(100 hard, 50 EZ) on a 3:00 cycle, with the 100s in 1:35, 1:34, 1:33, 1:31, 1:30. Then 35 min of the usual core and PT exercises, plus *** pushups.<br><br>
Enjoy your rest jjj.<br>
All take care and have great runs or rests.

<img alt="blush.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/blush.gif">Aaw, t'anks, youse guys. Trust me, I'm gloating aplenty. I've been doing the happy groove, singing "37:16" (what my watch said) and dancing around the house.<br><br>
Hey, Ken. I'm making it up as we go along.<br><br>
This was the original idea:<br><br><b><span style="font-size:xx-large;"><span>Pushup Challenge!</span></span></b><br><br>
Because I can't do more than, like, four of what SS calls "Plank Pushups" (and I call "manly pushups"<img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"> without falling on me face.<br><br>
So: For the remainder of the month of January 2008, I will issue the following points.
<ul><li>Knee-pushup (previously "girly"<img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"> - .5 point performed by a man, 1 performed by a woman.</li>
<li>Plank-pushup (previously "manly"<img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"> - 1 point performed by a man, 2 by a woman.</li>
<li>Chinup - 2 points for a man, 4 for a woman. Grip doesn't matter.</li>
</ul>
Static yoga-type chaturanga stuff will make my head explode. Extrapolate if you wish, just don't tell me about it.<br><br>
The winning man and woman will each get $50 donated in their name to the <a href="http://www.fcrfoundation.org/" target="_blank">Flat-Coated Retriever Foundation</a> in memory of ol' Storm.<br><br>
So report your pushups in the weekly, and I'll calculatize 'em.

Hi Sally!!! Way to rock that 8km - they really are a bear to run - and you were fan-tab-u-lous!! And Econo? Simply stunning - what an awesome performance!! Wicket awesome way to smash that PR! Also can't wait to read some marathon RRs. Woot!<br><br>
EZPZ 7.5 miles at 8:40/mile for me so far. Legs are kind of weary from yesterday, but isn't that "just the way we like it"?<br><br>

I'll jump on the Mustang Bandwagon this morning too. I remember a crappy run she had just prior to her race and how discouraged she sounded. Then she bangs out a HUGH PR! We should all have weeks like that!<br><br>
0715<br>
30 degrees<br>
17 mph wind<br>
8 miles<br><br>
I followed with a quick 15 minutes of stretching, crunches, and yes, pushups. I have to really watch a painful right elbow so I did 4 sets of 10 girlie pushups from my knees but with elbows tucked next to my sides. I really don't care much for pushups and am only doing this for Dear Storm.<br><br>
I hope our marathoners are feeling okay this morning!

Good Morning kicksters! Thanks for starting peter. Sally I agree with everyone else, 3 minute pr on a difficult course...You Rock!<br><br>
No coffee this morning! I had to pull out my secret stash of Morning Thunder tea, probably illegal in six states, to get my morning shot of caffiene in preparation for a nice run this morning. 28 degrees, sun is shinning the roads are snowpacked, no ice.<br><br>
Good Runs All, Larry

LeConte with me.<br><a href="http://share.shutterfly.com/action/pictures?a=67b0de21b3598b08c45d&sid=0Aas27Rk4csmLrg" target="_blank">http://share.shutterfly.com/action/p...Aas27Rk4csmLrg</a>

Hey Econo, emcee, Sal, others... how about posting the link to your RRs in the sticky thread at the top of the page so they remain easy to find?
