4 here also to keep loose. Ran with Tory and he chased some deer (til the end of the leash <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> ). Then I hit the Y for 800 yds of "swimming" using arms only. I always feel very energized after the pool. Maybe it's all that chlorine water I'm injesting? Actually I think it's because the lungs get a good workout from the gasping for breath.<br><br>
Todd... GL on the taper.<br><br>
IF I can hold out, I am shooting for an 8:30 pace. Not the fastest, but overall it will be fine. I have never raced anything further than a 10K so this will be a stretch as far as races go. I have run several long weekend runs of 11-15 miles so this distance is not out of the question. The time of 8:30 is!!
Good morning Todd, Millbot, Mudpuppy, perchcreek, and whoever joins us today. Looks like some good recovery/taper runs this morning to start the week. I ran a 5.75 run this morning with some tempo thrown in. Avg pace 7:45's. Start official Disney training in 2 weeks so just keeping a base of 35-40 mpw now.<br><br>
just wanted to pop in and say good morning to everyone today. No run for me again today. working all day, then I have stuff going on this evening. But I'll get over to the gym on my lunch break tomorrow for 3-4 miles and might even pull a double and go back to the gym after work for another 3-4 miles.<br><br>
Have a good day all and enjoy the run (or the rest!)
Good morning to all, I did a 5.2 mile easy paced recovery run in the woods this morning (untimed). I suppose I could go look at previous days posts, but one of the big concerns and topics of discussion in our van this weekend was:<br>
Did Millbot get his half marathon PR??<br>
Inquiring minds want to know.<br><br>
Oh yeah, I spent the weekend in a cramped van with 5 other runners, a driver, and a whipcracking, hammer wielding van captain, occasionally emerging to run, eat, act obnoxious, cause trouble, etc. Sleep,.... didn't happen. A full report will follow sometime today.<br><br>
Like the Tamster I just wanted to check in. No Run for me today.<br><br>
Can't wait for the race report. (baited breath)<br><br>
Todd sounds like the 8:30 isn't too much of a stretch.<br><br>
Have great days
Checking In, and I have been for a run too - <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Went to the gym to work on spare tire, and managed a 6Km Dreadmill run in 29:32 as well.<br><br>
Looking forward to the Race Report from the Camper Van <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
6 and change for me this morning. I am in the final week of taper for M I am running on Labor Day. Easy paced run doing 25% of average mileage from training.<br><br>
BTW could anyone suggest a good online running log that information could be uploaded from Excel or from a different online log? I have alot of good memories tied up in the CR log and I plan to take them with me. Thanks!
Pace2Race, I posted this topic on Cool Running a little while ago. If you click on this link you'll see some of the responses I received: <a href="http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/Forum13/HTML/010826.shtml" target="_blank">http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/Fo...L/010826.shtml</a>
I suppose I can post my workout. I made a deal with my foot that if it got me through Hood to Coast, I would give it two weeks off from running. Since I'm a man of my word...<br><br>
30 minutes recumbent bike, 15 minutes elliptical trainer. I disliked every minute. Grrr...I don't think my inaugural marathon is going to happen in October.
Johnny, I am surprised to have been a topic of conversation, but I did find myself thinking of you guys during my race -- and being glad that I had one race to run and not three! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Thanks for the thoughts and the kind comments.<br><br>
Todd, you just had a 14-mile run at 8:32! If you can do that in training, you can do better than 8:30 in a 25K race. If you start at 8:30 pace, I think you will feel strong enough to pick up the pace after a few miles. Race-day magic is powerful!
