Nice run GaRebelRunner!<br>
Good luck tomorrow EQ!<br>
Feel better Amethyst!<br><br>
14 miles today with the running club. Well, really, on my own. Most of the club is off doing various races this weekend, so there were just a few of us this morning. I was the fastest of the bunch and going the longest so this = alone. Anyways, decent run overall. The sky opened up and started pouring when I was at the 7 mile turn around, of course. The rain was hit and miss for just a little bit. But just the little bit soaked me to the core. Finished in 1:59:51. Now I'm going to go take a nap. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
Unplanned off day.<br><br>
The last couple of days I've had a bit of a muscular pain in my right hip, and a "weakness" there that had me limping when I was tired. Okay when running but not otherwise.<br><br>
I have been exhausted all week - running, work, home stuff. Slept 11 hours last night and while I'm feeling a bit better (thanks Vitamin I) I think that I'm going to take it easy today.<br><br>
Plan called for a 5 mile recovery run anyway.<br><br>
Sorry Pete Pfitzinger, but I'm on a one day strike.<br><br>
Good luck tomorrow Kevin.
Grizzly - Wise move - Pete only wants you to follow the spirit of his plan anyway - Not complete unthinking obedience.<br><br>
EQ - Have a great race - Early season races are fun, but I am never sure what exact pace to run.<br><br>
Me - I decided to quit running miles for the VRAA and start training - I ditched my 28 miler for an easy paced 22 miler - about 1:30 slower than current MP = .25 walking (For VRAA <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">)<br><br>
Good runnign to all -
I hope you run like the wind tomorrow Equinox! I look forward to your report.<br><br>
Grizzly, nothing wrong with relaxing on a day like today. I decided to ditch two scheduled runs this week and I'm not sorry that I did.<br><br>
This morning was my last challenging workout before my marathon on April 15th. I ran a total of 18 miles with 14 of them at goal marathon pace (7:20). It was tough, but I was able to do it and the confidence has been boosted. Boston-qualifying race...here I come!<br><br>
Good runs everyone! Keep 'em coming.
Way to go, Lofcadio. What a confidence boost for your marathon.<br><br>
Today's run: 10 miles easy on the Buckeye Trail. 1:39.<br><br>
Crunningman is in town today. He's joining me for a 40 mile trail weekend: 10 today, 50k tomorrow morning at the Fools' FA.<br><br>
Good runs, all.
Thanks for all the good wishes everyone...and good luck to everyone else who is running tomorrow.<br><br>
Tomorrow's race is likely to be strange. I could be:<br><br>
1.) pacemaking for a friend who has never gone that far before.<br>
2.) running it easy, just as a long run where I don't have to carry a Camelbak<br>
3.) run it at a race pace, and see where I currently stand.<br><br>
I suspect 1 or 2 is most likely. I am really not in race shape right now, so option #3 might not be a smart idea. I see how I feel in the morning, and let my body set the pace.
Well back from one mini vacation...after work tomorrow I'm off to visit my sister and spend the night. I should be able to post tomorrow easily with computer labs there. I get to run at the campus too. Yay!<br><br>
