Good Morning,<br><br>
Coffee, coffee, and more coffee. I will e-v-e-n-t-u-a-l-l-y head out for 3 miles but am feeling awfully lazy this morning. I hope everyone else is feeling more energetic than I do.<br><br>
Catch you later...

I woke up early and got in 1.6 miles in 14:15 before for the littlest let out an unearthly howl over the baby monitor, the likes of which can only mean her other three canines are simultaneously coming in and possibly ghosts were sticking her with pins. I'll be heading to the Y in a bit with both kids and give the gift of sleep to my husband.

Flo, good luck tomorrow. How are you feeling? It's supposed to be bitchin' cold in NH. Maybe they'll have warm gatorade again this year. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> Will you be meeting up with Equinox?

Got up at 5:45 with my daughter and gave her a bottle and now she is back to sleep. Decided that I would just get up and get ready for my run this morning. I have 6 miles planned for the day and it seems the temperature is not that bad at 25. Have a great morning and I will report back later.

Have a good one, Dan.<br><br>
Rest up Richard.<br><br>

RicharC--Looks like the packers will have frozen tunddra for sure if it stays that cold.<br><br>
Got out for a really good run this morning. The plan was to do 6 miles. On decided on an even 10k today and could have gone further than that. 6.20 miles in 51:10(8:15) pace. Have a good day everyone. I am resting as I always do tomorrow and I might have some snow to shovel late Sunday and most likely monday as a storm is coming in.

gggguuuuuuuuhhhhh.....schedules(over which I have no control)...gripy women(all of whom I am related too)...late, late, late night....No wonder I had not thought about what this weekend would be like until yesterday on the way to the airport....My family is nuts...I might feel sorry for Tonya, but she knew what she was getting into... <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
no run today, my legs hurt from the past two days. I can actually 'feel' the workout for the first time since the ITBS started...nice that the pain is saying away...I am going to get up early tomorrow and run on a path along the river...probably 3-4 miles...Have a great day everyone...

It's a nice sunny day but I think it's just warmed up to a balmy 0F. Earlier, I'd thought about running on the bike path but the wind is nasty. So, heading to the gym for indoor speedwork... probably those 800s I missed earlier in the week. Fun Fun.

Morning all! Early run this morning. 6:45, which is a bit later than I hoped. But, it was very enjoyable getting out there while the rest of the world (including my family!) slept. Pretty cold outbound (~25*), but not bad. Turned around and ran... into a headwind! There's on section where with the lay of the land, wind is funneled, adding about 10mph. And seeing that it was already 20mph... My eyeballs froze. Really! Got home and discovered that the temp had dropped 5* while I was out. I'd believe that! 10m (exactly!), 1:28:28, 8:51pace.<br><br>
Coach had me down for a 30:00 ride. Had hoped to do a road ride. Not today!!! Used the trainer to thaw. Good tunes on the radio, so it wasn't too bad.<br><br>
Quick shower, even quicker time to do my now VERY short hair, then off to work!<br><br>
Tomorrow I'm supposed to do a road ride. At 10*, that ain't gonna happen!!!

Got in a 3.5 mile recovery run this morning. Legs felt surprisingly good after the races yesterday. Temperature was -3 and wind chill -15. I wore multiple layers though, so it was all good.

3 miles in very blustery mid 30's. Good run though and no where near what you guys are dealing with in terms of temps<br><br>
Tonya and Phil - Have fun at the wedding. (Phil, you can do it)<br><br>
XC - Good luck with your knee/hip. Hope you're able to keep running<br><br>
Thanks to Kick for getting the log up and running<img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif">

Greetings, all<br>
A good end to a tough week. My six-mile effort today was my longest since Dec. 22 (also six). It marked the end of a three-run, 13-mile week.<br>
Yeah, a weak week.<br>
As it turns out, I have time on the schedule to run Derry tomorrow -- but I am in nowhere good enough shape to do so (16 miles of hills). Someday. Some year.<br>
Oh, and Ellen: My wife and I planned a Disney trip in mid-October (Columbus week), so Bay State doesn't look good either.<br>
In any case, I am going to try and race more frequently this year; I think I've gone stale or something.<br><br>
Good runs, all (end of ramble)

Good afternoon all.<br><br>
Sorry not enough time to reply to all. Rain, rain and more rain this morning. Slow start for me. I think this week took a toll on me. Oh well. 20.5 mile sthis morning on the trainer. I was suppose to go for a run as well but I didn't feel like venturing out in the rain.

18.75 miles for me this morning. First 7 alone, next 7 with a group, last few miles alone. This is the longest I've gone in a while. Cool but sunny morning and luckily not much wind.

Baba, if you decide to train for a fall marathon then you've got to the Nahant 30K with me in September. Assuming I am healthy and uninjured, I'll be training for Baystate, and the 30K is about a month prior to the full.<br><br>
I got over to the Y and put in 30 minutes on the elliptical and four miles on their possessed treadmill, 37:03. Am hoping to wake up early to get my eight in tomorrow morning. ~~pleasepleaseplease~~ There is no babysitting at the Y on Sundays, but also the treadmill police would not look kindly on over an hour on the mill, when the policy is 30 minutes.

Hey Dan! I'm just now getting back into posting...are you still planning on running the Tacoma City Marathon? A traditional 16 week program would have us starting this coming Monday! I'm planning on it - and I made a plan - I could email it to you if you're interested (but it's mainly a cut and paste from Runnersworld.com)<br><br>
----<br><br>
As for my run today, I got in 8.3 at a 9:54 pace, which is about right for me. I'll be aiming for the four hour mark at the Tacoma Marathon in May...which may be a bit out of my league, but we'll see.<br><br><b>RichardC:</b> enjoy your rest<br><b>Xcrunner:</b> oooo...pizza...fun to eat...not fun to upchuck!<br><b>kfuller:</b> sounds like you got a good run in...as a Seahawk fan could you please refrain from Packer talk...I'm still in depression <img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif"><br><b>Phil: t</b>ake it easy...just say no to injuries!<br><b>RunAsics:</b> Enjoy the gym...I might have to go there next week if the weather gets too icky.<br><b>4boys:</b> wow! An 8:51 pace with frozen eyeballs...Impressive as always!<br><b>Nirvy:</b> Hey long time no talk! How are you doing in our basketball league? Better than me, I'm sure.<br><b>Baba:</b> Nice job on reaching the six mile marker...I really slacked off during the holidays, so today was my longest run in a long time too!<br><b>Dave:</b> Wow, what's a "trainer"? Either way 20.5 on anything is impressive!<br><b>rhody:</b> Great run! I'll be doing a bunch of those half/alone half/group runs in a few months when I volunteer to be a pace setter for the Portland Marathon Clinic...do you like doing it that way?<br><b>ellen:</b> Those treadmill police can get pretty bossy! That's why I prefer outside if at all possible! Hope it goes well!<br><br>
So....sounds like Tanya and Phil have an exciting weekend...wow, it's really been a long time since I posted - I'm totally out of the loop! It's good to be back!

Hi everyone,<br><br>
Hope your Saturday's going well and you're keeping warm.<br><br>
Well, I had a much better than expected result this morning at the 20k race. I figured after some hard workouts this week I would be good for about 7:15/mile pace today and would have happily taken anything under 1:30. Not only that but it was cold -- about 28 degrees at race time and the trail the race was run on had a lot of ice on it, including some black ice. Sometimes you couldn't see any ice below you but your feet were slipping anyway. All the slipping and sliding made my hammy real tight at one point so I had to worry about that for a couple of miles, too (fortunately it loosened back up eventually).<br><br>
So what I do in these conditions? Oh, I just go out and nail down a 1:27:15 (unofficial, based on my watch)...7:01/mile and a 6-minute PR!!!<img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><br><br>
I came in 24th overall. I'm not sure yet how that stacks up in the age group but at the least I'm pretty sure I picked up decent club championship points (this was the DCCRC's official 20k championship race). That's an big pickup for me after missing the club 10-mile championship race 2 weeks ago; I was really bummed about that because I consider 10 to be my best distance.<br><br>
One of my unstated goals of late has been to get myself below 7:00/mile for the 10-13.1 distances. I'm so close to that now. I'm absolutely certain as well that if today's race had continued for another 0.7 miles I would have PRed for a half marathon, too. My PR from Baltimore last fall is 1:33:19 and, well you can do the math. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
All in all, this was a fantastic result for a non-targeted race.<br><br>
Ellen - way to get that run in. The 30-minute time limit reminds me of the old community gym I used to belong to Arlington; they had that too. My wife and I had it down though...one us would tart on the elliptical, the other on the mill and then after 30 minutes, instant switcheroo.<br><br>
Rhody - nice long run there. Well done.<br><br>
Baba - just pick some races and do them! My marathon at Charlotte last month wasn't even on the radar screen in October, and it turned out to be the race of my life.<br><br>
Dave - good job fighting through the exhaustion. It will all be worth it.<br><br>
Dan - way to get out there.<br><br>
Nirv - nice recovery run. I haven't read about your meet yet, but will do so next.<br><br>
4bm - 10-miler plus some bike trainer time. Very impressive.<br><br>
RA - have fun with the 800s.<br><br>
xcr - glad to see you got out there. Just take it slow getting back into it, there's no reason to hurry.<br><br>
Tonya/Phill - have fun and remember -- open bar. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
kfuller - have a good run later<br><br>
RichardC - enjoy the off day and good luck with that cold tomorrow. Today's Washington Post had an interesting article about the bratwurst place next to Lambeau...Pack fans are one of a kind, I have to hand them that!<br><br>
OK, time for me to get ready for another quick trip up to Philly...seeing my Saint Joseph's Hawks take on Penn at the Palestra tonight! Have a great rest of the day everyone. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
