Richard - Have a good swim.<br><br>
SGH - The machine is call the Bod Pod. <a href="http://www.bodpod.com/p_bodAbout.php" target="_blank">http://www.bodpod.com/p_bodAbout.php</a><br><br><img alt="" src="http://www.bodpod.com/images/b_bodpod_60q.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
It is pretty fast and relatively accurate. I just can't believe that I am 9.4%. I would think much more.<br><br>
Rest day for me.

Richard- Nice job on the swim.<br>
Dave- I'd like to see what you your BF is in the hydro tank. You'd be surprised. With calipers, DEXA, BIA, and a few other methods we use I've been measured from 23-26% but in the hydro tank I'm 21%. In any event, you're still very lean! I've always thought the bod pod is quite interesting and looks like something used for space travel <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br>
Apple- Bummer about the cancelled race. Another day to train and improve though.<br><br>
After 20 minutes of running yesterday, I'm bringing it up to 30 minutes today, followed by some elliptical. I'm staying indoors <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> on the TM until my ankle is really strong, so that I don't risk re-twisting it on a tree branch, uneven road etc.<br><br>
Enjoy your workouts/rest everyone!

Ran with a friend this morning. Light wind in the upper 20s around 7:00AM. We ran out into the country on a hilly course. Some of the roads were quite icy, but traffic was very light.<br><br>
My friend is a 4:30 marathoner, but I told him that we would run his pace for this run compared to what I'd probably do on my own around 7:30/pace. The first few miles went like this 9:53, 9:08, 9:09. Then I told myself that I agreed to this and would need to be patient. So, with 5 miles to go I told him that I was going to do some 1/4 mile pickups or longer and turn around and pick you up. I probably did this 6-7 times during the run.<br><br>
Ended up running just over 16 miles total - 2:23.<br>
In many ways it was probably best that I ran this slow because it was my first road run in nearly 5 weeks and two weeks post my last 50K Race.<br><br>
Enjoy your Saturday everyone!<br>

Complete rest day for me and I got a chance to sleep in a little. Sweet.<br><br><b>Dave</b> - 9.4%. Nice. I've been read between 8% and 12% with various devices over the past few years but never in a pod... I don't do enough weight training these days so am probably on the high side of that range.<br><b>Liz</b> - good to hear that you're rehabing well<br><b>Richard</b> - nice swim.<br><b>Apple</b> - bummer about the race.<br><br>
Have a great weekend and good luck to those racing! Run strong!

I'm typing this as about 9 more inches of snow descends in N.H. Looks like another "cross train" day of plowing and shoveling. I'm also coming off something of a bug.<br>
I'm hoping this month is better than the one just past.<br><br>
Dave, I can't say I'm surprised...<br>
Richard, good job on the swim...<br>
Liz, nice to see the ramp-up...<br><br>
Good runs, all

baba - have fun with the "cross training"<br><br>
dave - 9.4! very cool. you work hard so no surprises there.<br><br>
asics - enjoy the rest<br><br>
crunning - I used to have a friend that was like that. he was so much faster than me that he'd just run out and backs constantly when we ran together.<br><br>
liz - very cool that you're getting back in the swing of things. good idea to stay safe also.<br><br>
richard - nice job in the ol bowl

Good morning to everyone. I hope all those racing do well today. I got out for a tough 8 miles. Legs were a little sore from the track workout on Thursday. 8 miles in 1:08:52(8:37). My long runs are generally around 8:30 Pace which gives me a negative split for the run. First mile was over 9 min pace. 10-15 mph winds during the whole run. Took my car in to get repaired this morning before my run and I hope it doesn't take all day to get fixed. Have a great day everyone.

Good morning everyone. I am usually a night runner so I will post yesterday's run. I ran a nice 8 miles yesterday. It was quite windy and rainy, but nothing like Surf City marathon. I am going to run a short one today. Tomorrow I am running 18 hilly miles with two people that are faster than me. It should be interesting, just did a marathon 4 weeks ago and I am ramping up for Boston.<br><br>
Kevin-hope you get your car back today.<br>
Liz-sounds like you are feeling much better.<br>
Baba-sorry about all the snow.<br>
Asics-sleeping in is so sweet, doesn't happen often!<br>
crunning-that is nice of you to run with your friend.<br>
Richard-nice job in the pool. I am not much of a swimmer.<br>
Dave-enjoy the rest.<br><br>
Cheers to everyone!

Morning...<br><br>
Richard--nice job in the fishbowl!<br><br>
Apple--bummer about your race.<br><br>
Good runs/rests the rest of all y'all.<br><br>
For me, it was an early run. And not a very good one... GI issues before leaving the house. At 35mins my guts exploded. Made it to the POJ at 37mins. Long stop there. Then, since I my stop was on the bike path, decided to go ahead and do the bike path. Big mistake. THe snow that started to melt yesterday refroze overnight, leaving sheets of ice. I saw 3 runners go down in that 7miles. Headed back home, detouring through a new developement to take advantage of another POJ. The last quarter of my run was not good at all, with my gut threatening to errupt yet again. Got home with just enough time to shower and head to work. I was only 5mins late...<br><br>
HOme from work and went to download garmin data, only to find I HAVE NO DATA!!! It was running the whole time. I know it was because I was looking at the data (HR, distance, time). I'm guessing my distance was around 14m. Time, who knows. And it's probably best I don't know...

Back after 33 min elliptical (Tonya-- Don't know how you go so fast on that thing! It's my nemesis), then 30 minutes easy run, for a little over 3 miles.<br><br>
Crunningman- Nice job on that 16 miles.<br>
RA- Enjoy your rest day!<br>
Baba- Take it easy if you're still not feeling 100%. Hope you feel better soon.<br>
Dan- Yes, better safe than sorry (aka out for another 3 weeks). Nice job on your 4.<br>
kfuller- nice run, even on sore wheels.<br>
Rainie- Good luck on your 18 tomorrow!<br>
4boys- Hope the GI issues resolve themselves. Nice run in less than ideal conditions.

Wow, some...interesting activities going on today. Great job ALL despite the things life hands you.<br><br>
Dave - No surprise there. I would LOVE to have that done.<br><br>
The legs were pretty sore during my run yesterday, so I decided if they were sore when I awoke this morning, I was going to take a complete rest day.<br><br>
They are, and I am.<br><br>
Yet--yesterday Phillip got some new gear for his bike and is planning to do a brick today (bike, run). PLUS, it's a wonderful 52 degrees outside right now and it's not even noon, so I think I may go on his brick with him. What the hell, should be fun! He runs a crapload slower than I do, so it'll be good for me. Teach me some patience and humility, I figure.<br><br>
Have a great day everyone!

Hey Liz, what brand of machine is it? And what program did you set it on, if any?<br><br>
Just curious because I always do a program that is preset for 33 minutes.

Tonya, not too sure on the brand. I stay at my parent's on the weekends and use my sister's gym as a guest, so I'll have to ask her. I was using the manual program but I was going way slow like 9:30 per mile but my stride rate was 168/min avg. Hmmm, maybe it was because I put it on a moderate resistance?

Just adding that 9:30 per mile didn't FEEL slow I thought my legs were moving, however the pedometer on the machine was not haha.

25F and windy at 7am.<br><br>
A couple inches of new snow hampered my planned 20 with slick roads and poor footing. Add to deal that I was out late with a couple too many beers, and I ended up with a slightly sub-standard run today. About 17 miles in 2:26 (8:34).<br><br>
Even though I did not have the run I wanted for myself, I'll take away a positive attitude that I was out there doing what I could, on this day.<br><br>
A few photos from the run:<br><br><img alt="" src="http://lh4.google.com/rootsrunner/R8mptwejROI/AAAAAAAABr0/v3AcMNzQ53E/DSC01071.JPG?imgmax=512" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><img alt="" src="http://lh4.google.com/rootsrunner/R8mpuwejRPI/AAAAAAAABsA/ppRG2A9N18U/DSC01084.JPG?imgmax=512" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><img alt="" src="http://lh3.google.com/rootsrunner/R8mpvgejRQI/AAAAAAAABsI/_W2LIraOSTo/DSC01089.JPG?imgmax=512" style="border:0px solid;">

Hey Lloyd!<br><br>
Nice pics. Even though you didn't get the 20 in I'm sure that 17 felt like it. The effort was there for sure. Great job!<br>

Awesome photos Roots!! Wish it was like that here. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
There were sooooooooooooooooooooooo many people out today on the bike trail that goes around the lake. Standing Bear Lake is right across the street from where we live, and it rocks!! It was 90% free of ice, but there were patches, and they were some sketchy ones, I'll give them that. There are also a TON of hills over here around our neighborhood, so the bike data seems lower to me than would be if we were riding on completely flat land the whole way. Anyway, we did a bike/run thing today, complete with transition. Here's the data, and keep in mind that the triathlon Phillip is doing in June is not for competition, only for himself.<br><br>
Bike - 5.59 miles, 28:20, 5:04 pace<br>
Transition - 1:50<br>
Run - 4.36 miles, 41:40, 9:33 pace<br>
Mile 1 - 9:14<br>
Mile 2 - 9:49<br>
Mile 3 - 9:34<br>
Mile 4 - 9:40<br>
Mile .36 - 9:15 (I sprinted home (7:00 pace) probably the last .10 mile so this is quite a bit faster)<br><br>
And I was going to take the day off...sheesh.
