I should be running but it's too cold and I don't think I'll have time to today (long day at work and meeting after). Have managed to get in some weights / areobic every day so that, at least, is something.<br><br>
I've kindof lost my running motivation.....need to find it again.
Big congrats to everyone again this weekend--'Bama racers all kicked butt (I love the "boBcammed story"!) and way to go <b>2oh</b> on a great half!<br><br>
I have a 20 miler to do this morning, I should get moving pretty soon. We are starting to get a little worried about the forecast for A1A on Sunday, the local station is saying the high will be 84--<img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif">--if I wasn't already signed up, I wouldn't being doing this. I guess things can change a little during the week, TWC doesn't have it as quite so warm.<br><br>
Have good runs/cross/rest days everyone!

Fitness club with the kids later today. I like how I've worked this into a good off-day from running workout. 35-40 mins of walking, with some good yoga stretching and core work. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> And the kids don't even seem to notice I've added the core work <img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif"><br><br><b>2oh</b> - NJ marathon. May 4th. I'm going back.<br><br>
Congrats again to all the weekend racers!
Did you sign up for the Skunk Cabbage? If not, sigh up for something. When I know I have a race coming up, it helps my motivation.<br><br>
5.5 sleasy this AM. Felt pretty beat up yesterday from Saturday's race, so today was about getting the legs moving and blood flowing - nothing more.
I'll be running something. 3? 4? One or the other is probably what is listed on my training schedule but I don't feel like pulling it out right now. Regardless, I'm taking it indoors today. Sure, I *could* run in single-digit temps, negative degree windchills, and an impending winter storm, but why? <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">
Cause its so fun!<br><br>
Morning Gang -<br><br>
Ran 6 miles on TM this a.m. at club before work. Did my striders too. Well, 4 of them. Weights on the lunch hour.<br><br>
Yesterday was my first complete day off in a long time. Didn't even do core or anything. I felt lazy. And I ate a ton, which made me feel worse.<br><br><b>20h</b> - great HM! Don't forget to post pix of the quads.<img alt="cool.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif"><br><br><b>JenRuns</b> - fabulous 5k yesterday. You are amazing!<br><br>
Congrats again to all the <b>Alabama racers</b> - sounds like it was a fun weekend too!<br><br>
Good runs to all!
Well, I'd love to run but I can't. My body just isn't up to it right now. Maybe in a few days ... <sigh><br><br><b>Jen</b>, how is your toe? And <b>Voo</b>, how is your heel?<br><br><b>HH</b>, I love your smile.<br><br><b>Litch</b> - excellent race PR on Saturday<br><b>Jen</b> - you are awesome!! Speedy, speedy, speedy.<br><b>BigG</b> - congrats on the PR<br><b>Beth</b> - Great job racing. Especially considering you only recently came out of your running funk and jumped back on the running wagon.<br><b>Tim</b> - great job!!!<br>
Way to go on Tim's daughter with an excellent 1 mile time! Wow!! and the photos are great.<br><b>Maples</b> - I'll say it again, that is an excellent 5k time! Congrats on your first race.<br><b>Bob</b> - Congrats on your race!<br><b>Tiff</b> - Congratulations on your 5k. I'm very impressed that you signed up for the HM on a whim and never ran more than 7 miles. Very impressive!<br><b>Jarod</b> - congratulations, especially after your injury.<br><b>2oh</b> - good racing to you! Your nice, slow miles for 1:50-55 are my goal. Good to know that's slow for some folks <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br><br>
Last Thursday I was out running and I almost got bobbed! The road was super extra wide at that point, one lane was actually the width of two lanes, and this jerk actually pulled all the way over to me and honked on purpose!! Asshat! <img alt="" src="http://bestsmileys.com/angry1/25.gif" style="border:0px solid;">
Missed my long run yesterday. We were supposed to do it as part of the Special Olympics Torch Run but with the snow storm they postponed it until next weekend. Not sure if I'll be able to make it up or not now. There's a run later...hills, I think. Probably about a 5 miler.<br><br>
I was away and managed to get in a few runs while I was gone. Good long one on my own. Sore hips afterwards, oddly enough. That's never happened before. Did some wicked hill repeats, too. For some reason I love doing hills.
I know it's just the middle of February, but can someone give me an estimate when the current ice age will be over? Please?<br><br>
I'm with you <b>Bard</b>, 6 miles on the TM. Nice and sleasy, and now I have to get ready for work because it might take me the next hour to dig out my car.
<b>RFTL-</b> it's fun on Sat a.m. when I meet my group and we hang out for coffee at the running store afterward. At 5 p.m. on a Monday when I am going solo, not so much. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">
4.5 yesterday on my pop-master treadmill. Got another 4 (I think) on schedule for tonight.<br><br>
Good news is that the repair guy called, and that I've received the replacement belt via UPS delivery. Radioyada should have a day off this week, so we're hoping to schedule the TM work on that day.<br><br>
Got a little tickled at something on saturday's LR. 1st lap around Stone Mountain, I'm going my usual 'chug-a-lug' pace. Somehow, on a flat area, I notice that somehow I'm going faster than normal. A LOT faster, actually, but I can't figure out how it's happening. To boot, it's not killing my cardio to keep up the pace. I try to analyze things while I"m running, to no avail, and finally just enjoy the faster speed while it lasted. (only a few minutes, but still.. better than I'd expected!)<br><br>
Radioyada and I were talking about it last night, and we joked that as long as my cardio can handle the 'bursts' of speed (for now), it almost sounded like the process that I went through, for a jumping-front kick in karate. For ages, I just couldn't figure out how to make everything work. Timing was off, and the coordination wasn't happening. Then one day.. voila.. it all came together. I didn't even know it, until I performed the kick correctly, and then, in a Keanu Reeves moment, thought "whoa...."<br><br>
Maybe.. just maybe... that speed with running will sort of flow in the same manner. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
P.S Thanks for the <b>Garmin comments</b> this weekend folks. While I haven't bought one yet, I'm about 85% sure of the decision now. Walmart.com has the 305 for something like $212, which is probably as cheap as I'm going to see the thing.
