It's only 4:20 am here right now, so too dark to run outdoors. Besides, my legs feel like trash after yesterday's hilly outdoor run, so I will just do a short TM run in an hour or so.<br><br>
Good Saturday long ones to you all.

Rest day. Gearing up for tomorrow's 23 miler, last long long run before taper!<br><br>
I plan to soak in the hot tub at the Y today. That'll feel great.

You got it. I'll be thinking of you and pretending we are running along together and chatting and the miles are zipping by. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> You know, like they will at Umstead!

I'm going to be joining Meri and SGH in taking a rest day. The body feels surprisingly good given that I've done 4 days in a row for my last 3 running cycles.<br><br>
As for tomorrow, I've got nothing on SGH or Meri. I'm going to be a wimp and just do 10 (with maybe 2-3 at tempo pace).<br><br>
Enjoy your day folks! For those running today, make it a good/safe one.

got in 4 hours this morning. DW was going out for the day, so I had to be home by 9:45, so it was an EARLY morning. still a bit cold and windy by the water, but the skies were clear and sunny.<br><br>
made it home at 9:44, jumped in the shower, fixed a pot of my favorite tea, and probably spend the rest of the day playing candyland and chutes and ladders.

I think we've played a dozen games at Candy Land, and he keeps kicking my a$$. I feel gyped anyhow. When I was a kid, the last space on the board was a solid color. Purple I think. Now it's a rainbow, so there's never a hold up to win.

So today on my long run the temp was about 29*F with a Wind chill of 14*F. Gusts of up to 35mph. A beautiful February day in New England (actually, it wasn't so bad because there's bright blue sky and sunshine which makes all the difference). But not really the kind of day I expect to see two bicyclists ride by!! <img alt="confused2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/confused2.gif">

That's all right jen, they probably didn't expect to see someone running today! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
So, how far did you go today?

6 miles this morning at a relaxed pace. Yesterday it was 7.3 at a relatively fast pace.<br><br>
Tomorrow I'll run 16 to 18 at whatever pace feels good.<br><br>
I'm feeling healthy and strong.

That is so good to hear, duckgeek! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
10 miles for me along the beach path. 40 degrees and sunny as can be. The rain left everything sparkly bright.<br>
Vacation is over, and it is time to start building miles.
