I made yesterday a rest day. I think I kind of crashed into the fatigue wall Saturday and ever since it just feels like my body needs rest. Plus my sinuses seem a bit off and clogged this morning, so maybe I've got some slight bit of sickness weighing me down some?<br><br>
I'll just take it easy again today, hope to run tomorrow. A little bit of laziness isn't a bad thing to let the body recover and the mindset recharge too even.

Good morning!<br><br>
Got 5 miles in this morning. It was not the easiest run for me, but I was happy I stuck it out. I have pilates this afternoon.<br><br>
Have a great day!

'Morning all.<br><br>
Got 4.5 on the 'mill yesterday. Had planned on doing weight training in the evening when I got back in, but I was so exhausted from happenings over the weekend that it just didn't happen.<br><br>
I do have some dumbbells to take to work with me today... hoping to be able to incorporate some of my weight training there.<br><br>
zzzzzzzzzzzzz. Is it Friday yet? Someone wake me when we get there, please....

Heya heya. No run yesterday. Like most Sundays, it was a day of rest for me. Because of today's crappy weather, I'll probably do today's run on the TM. I'll try to get in about 6-7 miles, if I can get that much time on the machine. We'll see...<br><br>
Some nice racing this weekend, folks..

Supposed to run with the group later but I guess it'll depend on how bad the weather is. We're supposed to be getting a lot of snow. I guess I could go out on my own before it hits. Seems odd that I can run during the day now that DH is off work.<br><br>
Did I mention I used my Garmin the other day on my run? I really need a crash course in that thing. I did manage to log the run somehow and see it on a map afterwards. Neat. I can't wait to figure out how to use it better.

Congrats to the <b>Disney runners, the Icicle folks, and Cactus</b>. Sorry I couldn't make it down to DE!<br><br>
Got a nice long run yesterday afternoon, got 15+ from Chestnut Hill down to the Falls Bridge - I was hoping it would be lit up (they just put them on last week), but it wasn't quite late enough.<br><br>
15 comfortable @ 7:20 pace. That put me at just over 68 for last week which is (just barely) a new high.<br><br>
Tonight? I dunno. Something easy. Maybe 6.

Good Morning Everyone...the cold fronts on its way, the cold fronts on its way!!! This should be a much nicer week of running down here, the way it is supposed to be in January in S. Fla.<br><br>
The long term forecast for Miami has it at 66/82 degrees for the marathon, yuck. I'm planning on "running" not "racing" the 1/2 but it would be nice if would be a little cooler.<br><br>
Congratulations to all of the racers this weekend, all in all, it seems like most everyone had great runs!<br><br>
Today is a double day, 6am-4pm. Both at recovery pace, so nothing too exciting here.<br><br>
Have a nice rest/running/cross training day everybody!

Morning!<br><br>
My training plan calls for 2 miles. I had to laugh when I saw it, it's been awhile since they've given me 2 milers. Still, since it is a bit slippery outside, that's a good distance to take indoors on the track and push my pace, and then hit the machines. I gotta get someone to show me how to use the rowing machine, that looks like a good way to get an arm workout in addition to working my leg muscles.

Cross training tonight. Restarting my running program tomorrow (yet again). Still in a funk. Only went 2 days last week. Gotta go for 4 days again starting this week.

You can do it, <b>Maples</b>! Trust me, I know how hard it is to get restarted after a funk. Would rewarding yourself for doing all 4 days help? Not with food, but maybe a new running gadget or even a new dvd or cd?

I haven't seen the results from the Philly Pholks 10 miler, but there would have to be some ass-kickin' results to top <b>Cactus'</b> huge half marathon PR...more than a minute per mile improvement?! Dang!<br><br>
Dsiney went OK for me - it was fairly humid, especially if you've gotten used to northern weather. My groin/hammy was not doing so hot - it kind of flared up every now and then during the race. At its worst I was pretty certain I'd have to step off the course, but then a mile or two down the road it would loosen up enough to convince me to keep going. It tightened up pretty good once I stopped running so I think I'm taking the next few days off to see how it responds. I was glad to finally shake Baggs' hand, though I didn't get a chance to see Brandy - I hope they had an enjoyable trip. I saw SRLopez before the race - he said he ran his half marathon PR on Sat so he seemed pretty pumped about that. I had a good group and enjoyed the run despite my leg, and of course it was great to catch up with the other pacers.<br><br>
What were the other highlights of the weekend - I didn't see the results of the Icicle 10, how did everyone enjoy it?
