Morning all.<br><br>
Have 6 miles planned for sometime today.<br><br>
It's only 22 degrees out now so I think I'll wait until it warms up a little.<br><br>
Everyone have good runs!

I'm waiting for it to warm up some too. Blood sugar was a bit high this morning, had to inject some extra insulin, and I want that mostly out of my system before running too.

Aurrrgggg - now it's only 25. But like <b>Bob</b> I can't waste any more time either.<br><br>
Guess I'll go get dressed.

Morning Gang -<br><br>
Heading out for a few quick miles. DH went fishing for the weekend, so the TV will be babysitting my kids while I sneak out for a run. Bad mom!

Ok I am supposed to have a short day of 2 miles today and 5 tomorrow. BUT it's going to literally rain all day tomorrow. My thoughts last night were to do the long day, the 5 miler this afternoon and then if there is a break in the rain tomorrow I can get the 2 miler in as it will take much less time. Thoughts? I don't want to push things back until Monday as I really don't have time to run 5 before work that morning. I appreciate your input.

I'm hoping to sneak 2 miles in tonight, but I'm not sure if it will happen. Tomorrow I have a trail race, but I am just doing it to do it. I'm not really caring about my time. Thanks for the well wishes<b>Jill!</b> I'll need them!<br><br>
Have a fab day!

I would do the LR today. One of the things to consider with any schedule is that just because the schedule says to do X on any given day, you can be a little flexible with it. There are runs that are more important than others. Generally, the most important run is the LR for the week. Then there is a run of secondary importance, and the rest is easy miles that are intended to maintain fitness and give the body a chance to recover. Missing a midweek 2 miler is not as harmful to your goals as missing the weekend LR, because that 2 miler is intended to be easy recovery and not tax the body. The weekend LR, on the other hand, will stress the body so that it will adapt to the increased load, and result (gradually, over time) with increased endurance.<br><br>
Boy that was wordy. I hope you get the idea.<br><br>
For me, today is a rest day. Ran the last four days in a row, 4-5.5 miles east each day. Nine planned for tomorrow. It is the coldest weather of the season here today.

<b>Maples</b>, what <b>Litch</b> said.<br><br>
Did a 12 mile bike ride yesterday - that wind chill, whoa! Made pedaling a challenge in some parts, but I'm glad I got it all in.<br><br>
Today, dunno. I might try the pool running thing. It's one of those activities where I'm sure there will be two young lifeguards looking at me like I'm a total idiot, so I've been hesitant to get to it. Today's the day, I think. That, or some elliptical time.<br><br>
I made an appt for a chiro/ART guy next Friday - yay! for getting help, boo! that the local runners call this guy 'Dr. Pain'....<br><br>
Good (warm) runs to all!

Well, I may not do my short run with Bella. I have a killer headache. I think its sinuses and not a migraine. It's been dry in the house and even with the humidifiers I can still feel the dryness.<br><br>
I wrote my 3 race RR. Here it is if you are interested: <a href="http://kickrunners.com/forum/showthread.php?p=383045#post383045" target="_blank">http://kickrunners.com/forum/showthr...045#post383045</a><br><br>
Its wordy.

PS - <b>Pictures are now available at Island Photo</b> - orders.islandphoto.com - they are doing this weird thing where the photos are at low resolution and you have to click on the image to see what they really look like. Very irritating.<br><br>
But they are there!

I'm chatty today - but I'm bummed - the Troy Turkey Trot was chip-timed...it took a fair amount just to reach the starting line and my time at the finish line was 30:59. So I think, that's my clock time, I'll wait to see the chip time and should have a much more satisfactory result.<br><br>
The chip times are identical to the clock times. Am I right to think that doesn't seem right? Or am I missing something in my assumptions?
