Hi! I just finished my long run (3 to 4 miles). I've stretched, weighed in, I am about to have some breakfast and then... well, I have no plans so I'll just veg out today. It was a great morning for a run. Not too hot, not too breezy, it was just right. My feet are aching a little today though. I'll probably get fitted for new running shoes soon. Hope everyone else has a great run today!

Had to skip my 5K race on account of my left knee. There is something weird going on with it. I'm trying the icing, light stretching thing. Thanks for the advice yesterday, JenSparks. We'll see if it recovers quickly. The last time I injured something was a long time ago so I guess I've forgotten the basics of taking care of it. LOL.<br><br>
Hope all of your runs today are good.

Milergal, it's easy to forget the basics. You did the right thing not racing on a sore knee!<br><br>
Recovery run for me today: 56:43 on trails, probably about 5.5 miles or so ... don't really know and don't really care. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

Awesome long run today! 18 miles with temperatures and humidity down enough to feel the difference. I ran at my favorite 5K length path by the Dismal Swamp and went back and forth 3 times. My energy was sky high and pace stayed even throughout, a nice easy 9:15 or so. I wanted to pick it up to race pace the last couple miles but decided against it due to a slight bit of discomfort in my previously sprained left foot, left outer calf, and right knee. Nothing I can't run with, but a good reminder to pamper those areas and I think I will call for an ART tune-up or massage on Monday.<br><br>
milergal, I hope your knee responds to the TLC. What area of your knee is sore?

Afternoon! I was out at 8am for my 14 mile run. It went well, 2:29:25 or so. I had to stop and face down a dog, and talk with the owner, who was very apologetic. I hope she does something, because it's been too long for that dog to continue the "chase the runner" phase. Next time I'm calling animal control. The owner said "I'm thinking I might need a shock collar, but he doesn't do this every time". I don't care, if the dog comes after me, that's one time too many.<br><br>
Other than that it was a really good run, the farthest I've ever gone. I walked sometime around mile 10 or 11 for a bit, during a really long but not steep uphill. And I did 6 miles yesterday evening so I feel like a did a pretty good job. No cramps! I'm getting the hang of this electrolyte thing, I think.<br><br>
Alex, good luck on the hills <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Chosha, great job on your run. New shoes should help the aching feet, but it could be you're running more than you have before, too.<br><br>
milergal, I hope your knee feels better soon!<br><br>
SGH, great job on the 18 miles! I had a low point during my walking part, but overcame! Sometimes my internal dialogue is somewhat negative. It didn't last long though.<br><br>
Boy did I have a gas bubble working, though, massive belch once I stopped <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/surprised.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Surprised"><br><br>
My right hip felt a bit tight too, around mile 12, but I think it's just due to the length of the run and not having done this very often. A bit of a self-butt massage helped <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Wow long-run ladies nice job! Heal up all your owies as well.<br><br>
Great run this morning, 50 degrees in the open country air with a bit too much of a breeze but nothing too bad. 6.1 hilly miles at 7:30 pace and another mile back in town to my house from school. Calves are feeling good...I'm gonna need to religiously Stick them for the next 4 weeks though. Exactly 4 weeks until State and I have a pretty good chance of indiviually qualifying. Taper is pretty much starting with a lot more quality (intervals) and a lot less quantity. Only 26 miles this week and that aboslutely fine with me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Have a great weekend!

I ran 20 miles this morning with my running group, the <a href="http://home.mchsi.com/~lofcaudio/LRL.html" target="_blank">Long Run Lunatics</a>. We ran at a fairly decent clip with an average pace of 8:11 for the run. Enjoy yours.
