Mikey I don't know how much longer I can resist. I'll make myself for today and probably head out tomorrow...even though it will only be incredibly easy running I'm already getting antsy.<br><br>
2nd day of complete nothingness.
Alex - Ha! HA!<br><br>
easy 23 sat<br>
17 / 5 sunday<br><br>
I thought I might be tired for todays T-Paced workout - I'm happy to report I felt strong as a bull -<br><br>
14 total miles with [email protected] - So easy - wanted to do so much more - I did resist as it is 12 days until me against "The Old "Lady"<br><br>
Good running to all -
7 miles this morning. Rainy and cool in the NE. I meet with the sports nutritionist this morning. I'm hoping he can give me some good info to help me feel better with the longer distances. Something like "If you eat this you are guarenteed to run a sub 3:47 marathon in the fall" would are great <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> Assuming that's not happening I'll take any and every little bit of help I can get. Have a good Monday everyone.
45 mins on the stepper, 10 min ab video on demand, jump roping (my least favorite activity) and some girlie pushups and free weights. If it is not a super storm, trail run tonight with the group <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
Kruss I assume you meant a 2:47. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"> Hope you find some good info but remember there is no "Secret" but definitely things that can help along the way. I think the Once A Runner went something like- The secret was being out there day after day putting in miles, and breaking down the rubber on the bottom of your shoes. I need to go read that again...very inspirational.<br><br>
Mikey I wouldn't be laughing so soon...the day after your tea party with the elderly I'll be right on into another quality workout....Oh wait, you probably will be too. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
Off to lunch.
I was going to bag my run because of t-storms and very heavy ran and wind but I watched zinfar's WS video and couldn't stay inside.<br><br>
5 @ lunch between waves of t-storms. Ran through all the puddles and felt good with a comfortable 7:20ish pace. Did'nt even notice the rain after the first mile. Wet and muddy.<br><br>
Everytime I run in the rain I am reminded why my son can't walk around a puddle. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
Alex - your right - I will lose a whole week of training (I will run / but not train) followed by a weak week of training - and then have to face off at H&S. 2004 I ran H&S after GRandmas and it didn't go so well.<br><br>
4 recovery miles at lunch
Ya I re-evaluated and may take another day off. I feel all sorts of minor pains in like quads and stuff and may just walk around a lot today and tomorrow. XC Coach says wait a week but I don't know if I can...<br><br>
I'm hoping you have a lot in ya Mikey because I want this series to be some intense neck and neck racing. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> I'm sure you can still deliver.
Alex- do you have gym access? i always find the elliptical good for recovery.<br><br>
I did a 1:15 trail run with the running group. Pace was way too fast for me as the whole group ran together. Usually the less fast of us run seperately <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">
No Meri I do not, so I'll probably sit around and play some catch in baseball with little bro and maybe some DDR, but not too much more than that for activity. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> I'll be back at it Thursday I'm thinking. 5 days should be a significant enough break after track to start base training for XC, especially with how little we did in training the last week or 2 of track.<br><br>
I'm very eager...
