Good morning all! I ran 16 miles this morning with my weekend running group. We had a great time enjoying the beautiful morning. I hope your runs go as well.

13 miles in the mist and light rain this morning. It felt like we were pushing the pace harder than our times indicated, but I'm glad we got it done.

5K race - 28:32<br><br>
mile 1 - 9:17<br>
mile 2 - 18:11<br>
mile 3.1 -- 28:32<br><br>
Had to slow down the last mile because of problems with chronic bronchitis... After the race coughed up lots of phlegm-- probably good thing I slowed down or I would likely have had a full fledged "asthma" attack right there on the course.<br>
Dissappointed... I wanted to run 15 sec/mi faster... but I knew that wasn't likely when I woke up this morning with a really sore throat and some chest tightness.<br><br>
Got 3rd female 20-24.<br>
Also got an autographed running log from Blake Russell. Pretty cool. She was really nice.

Congrats on placing in your age group, QN. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
I ran 11.6 miles trails on a lovely day. I knew my mileage via GPS, and it turned out I emerged onto a road, and had to run up a brief steep hill to get to my halfway point.... and there was a portapotty right at the end, as if it was my holy grail! <img alt="icon_cheers.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_cheers.gif"><br><br>
I struggled a bit in the last few miles, and I realized that I hadn't really had any water from last night until I'd started the run. Lesson learned: red wine (pm) and coffee (am) do NOT adequately hydrate the body!!<br><br>
I encountered some horseback riders that I've seen before on various points on the trail over the past several weekends, and the one woman commented "You are a very ambitious young lady!"<br><br>
I don't know whether I was more surprised over the "young lady" or the "ambitious" part! I have never considered myself ambitious at all. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

I am jealous of all you long runners<br><br>
I ran an easy 4 or so with 1200 @ marathon pacing pace on the track<br><br>
I picked up my stuff today and my little pace sign on a stick - Weather is OK - 44F at astart with winds 10-15 - wind chill 36-38F - They gave me a singlet I am suppose to wear - I think I will paint 3:10 on a throw away long sleave t-shirt BRRR - But much better than 80s

QN - For a race you said you weren't going to run (I cite the GM thread), that's pretty good.<br><br>
Flouder - a tittle town brew??? Freudian slip??? <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>

25 LAPS AROUND THE SHORT COURSE AT ROTARY PARK<br><br><br><br>
Today, the plan was 5 miles of recovery. I wanted to do it on trail because I did yesterday on pavement. My pavement shoes were wet, so I wanted to go on trail.<br><br>
The Merrimack River trail is most likely flooded, so I went to to a local park that has a 0.2 mile dirt path around it. Did 25 laps around it.<br><br>
A bit boring, but I got the 5 miles of recovery in, and I did it on trail, or trail like conditions.<br><b>Run Segments<br>

Good runs everyone! QN, congratulations on your race!<br><br>
altoids, good job on the trails, and I hear you about the hydration.<br><br>
I ran 10 miles starting at 10:37am (I'm not a morning runner) and I was surprised at how good I felt all run. I felt even better than last week's 9 mile run. The temp was 45F and at about 3 miles it started to rain. 1.5 miles from the end it was really coming down, and I enjoyed it, after pulling my long sleeves over my hands. My times that I recorded were<br><br>
2 miles = 21:02<br>
4.5 miles = 46:35<br>
5 miles = 53:26<br>
8 miles = 1:29:38<br>
9 miles = 1:41:08<br>
10 miles = 1:50:55<br><br>
There are interesting hills on the route (an out and back) but nothing too difficult, although the 3/4 mile hill at the beginning used to get the better of me. I averaged 11:06 mm (I think)<br><br>
I started drinking my gatorade at 40 minutes, drank less than last week at the first walking to drink spot, because I didn't feel well last week from drinking too much. I did have to stop at about 1.5 miles from the end to stretch my calves which were tightening up just a bit, but I didn't cramp. I was also massaging my butt (ITB leg) occasionally. My SO met me after the 1/2 way point on his bike and offered to find a stick to hit me on the butt if I thought it would help. I told him I doubted I would appreciate it. I think I'm ready for my 1/2 marathon next week Sunday and hope the weather isn't too warm, because barring anything weird, that's probably the only thing that will trip me up.

10k race today, sponsored by Living Waters Church to raise money for a children's home.<br><br>
Disappointing turnout. It did look like rain this morning, but that's no excuse. I think there may have been 20 of us doing the 10k--I came in 6th place overall (that's a first, I guarantee!).<br><br>
Weather was actually very nice for running, by Texas standards for the month of May anyway--around 65F, overcast, sprinkles, not much wind. The course was a dirt/packed gravel trail along the West Fork Trinity River Levee. I run this trail a lot, and I love it because it looks like you're out in the boodocks even though your in the middle of the city.<br><br>
Crowd support was excellent, and the water stations were well-manned. I think there were more spectators than runners. They always had an encouraging word. I guess I was the only person over the age of 30 running the 10k, because a woman at one of the water stations said, "You're these guys' hero" as I passed by. While I knew that was an exaggeration, it still inspired me as I forged on.<br><br>
Finished in 49:19, my best 10k time in nearly two years. Still not as fast as I would like to have been; but now that I'm embarking upon marathon training, I haven't been concentrating much on speed, so I wasn't disappointed with the time at all.<br><br>
With a 1 mile warmup jog, the 10k race, and an easy 5 miles afterwards, today's mileage came out to about 12.2.<br><br>
Next weekend it's a 14 mile long run; haven't done that distance in a while. I'm starting a custom training program from McMillan Running, and it looks like TIME on my feet is more the issue than MILES--at least for a while. Has some interesting types of long runs and progression runs, too.

Congrats on the nice races.<br><br>
5.9 miles this morning with the group at 7:35 avg., but with a large std of deviation: 8:05, 7:28, 7:32, 7:39, 7:47, 6:13 for .9 (6:53 pace). I probably should run a 5k or 10k one of these days.

11 Miles on a relatively flat out and back coure in 1:52. 57 min out and 55 min back. That was in the morning. In the afternoon....4 hrs of kayaking on Kamloops Lake. Water was very cold and dirty due to flood conditions on the Thompson Rivers. Winds were variable....from none to 50 kph, so lots of fun.
