<p>Where is everyone?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I got out at 6:30 again for day 2 of couch to 5k.  I ran through my cooldown to extend it a little then did a little extra cooldown at the end.  My legs felt a little sore today...pathetic I know.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It was sunny out earlier so I was thinking we're good for the beach and swimming but now its getting cloudy again.  If we don't do the beach then I'll go to the pool later and do laps.</p>

<p>Hmm.  I tried to start the thread and it wouldn't work.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I did C25K W3D2 this morning, then lifted with little miss evil, and some time on the arc trainer after.   I think that might have been too much, because I really want to go back to bed now!</p>

<p>5.5 again this AM.  I am working from home (taking an online class for work).  I have a 5.5 mile loop at work (near the LI Sound, pretty flat), and one at home (in the Litchfield Hills, first 1.5 miles has a couple of hundred feet in elevation gain, then it rolls).  A full minute per mile slower at home then at work.</p>

<p>I suck.  I had two alarms set and my timed coffee pot the beeps when it's done all set and none of it worked to get me out of bed.  And I was in bed at 9:00!  It is super duper grogeous out there too.  I'm so mad at myself.  I didn't have enough time to get the 10 miles in but I was able to get in to work early so I'll leave early and get my 10 miles done. I thought about calling in late, but that doesn't look good and I only have one more mid week 10 miler on my calendar and an 8 miler. I'm going to arrange in advance to flex time or take PTO on those days and come in late so I can get my run in!  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I hope the rest of you all got spectacular morning runs in!</p>

<p>No morning runs for me.  I need to be at work at 7:30 every morning, and there's no way I'm gonna wake up early enough to run 10+ miles before that.  But I'll get out there tonight.  I'll do some kind of speedwork.  Either a long tempo run, or a bunch of intervals.  We'll see...</p>

<p>Good Morning!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm getting back into my early morning routine too.  I had gotten spoiled running at 8am the last 3 weeks.  Now my RP and I are meeting at 6am, to tune up for our 5am runs that start next week.  Ouch.  But I do love running in the cooler morning temps for sure.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hopefully some yoga tonight too.</p>

<p>Morning. Great track workout last night. Turned out to be boys against girls, which made it even more fun. Started off with 8x200m in :40-:43 (about 5:30/mile). then another 6x200m at about the same pace. Followed by a little fun racing. 250m in :44 and a 300m in :45. What a blast that was.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I did finally write up my Ragnar report, you can view it here if interested, <a href="http://minneapolis-i.com/2010/08/race-report-ragnar-relay/" target="_blank">http://minneapolis-i.com/2010/08/race-report-ragnar-relay/</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Totally can't wait to take loads of naps this weekend and catch back up on sleep.</p>

<p>Morning Gang -</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Excellent work <strong>Heather</strong> and <strong>Amichel</strong> on getting the C25K workouts done this morning!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>BigG</strong> - bummer.  But at least it is gonna be a gorgeous night tonight so you can get your 10 miles done.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I only pressed snooze once then dragged my butt out of bed and got 12 miles done (with 7 tempo in the middle).  Felt great.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Appointment with <strong>The Shoe Whisperer</strong> after work.  Yipee!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Saw <strong>KP's</strong> blog entry or post or something about only 39 days til TCM.  Holy crap that snuck up on me!  It seems really weird that I haven't done a 20 miler yet.  First one this weekend and then one in 2 weeks.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good runs and rests to all today!</p>

<p>Bad: I can't run every day.  The ankle just won't allow it.</p>
<p>Good: On the days I do run, once I get going the ankle doesn't care if I run 3 or 10 miles, it feels the same either way. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Stepped on the scale this morning and was surprised to see a new low of 157.4.  I'm pretty sure that I wasn't dehydrated, so I'm taking it as a valid number for now.  This is just slightly above my WLC goal so that's been a pretty successful program for me.  I think the best change I made was to keep a bunch of bananas at work and eat one whenever I'm feeling hungry. </p>

My DH swears by this also.  I wish I could eat bananas, but I just can't abide them.  My mother blames it on the fact that she accidentally fed me some spoiled banana baby food as a child. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/dontknow.gif" style="width:37px;height:15px;" title=""></p>

<p>Got out for a few miles this morning and it was nice and cool.   Cool enough that I could have used a light pair of gloves when I started. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm planning on running with a group later, too.  We're sponsoring a "tune up" program for anyone wanting to run the 5 or 10k at the upcoming Fiddlers Run.  I think we'll get a good turn out. </p>

<p>Got up early this morning for 6.5 miles with the group.  The moon was full and bright and stayed out with us the entire run.  What a beautiful thing to watch as it slowly illuminated more and more of the ocean before diving in.  Love runs like that!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Duck</strong> - Thanks for posting the link yesterday.   </p>

<p>Why does this thread always die down in the early afternoon?  Yeah, I guess everybody either runs first thing in the morning, or late in the afternoon/early evening after work.  But don't we have anything to talk about?  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Well, I'm gonna go hit the track and orbit around it.  I'll do a long tempo run.  Let's see if I can go long enough to get dizzy.  10+ miles at the track?  Yeah, why not.  40 laps in the same direction isn't enough to mess up my hips, right? </p>
<p> </p>
