Great runs everyone so far!<br><br>
Got to run a brand new route today about 10 miles out of town...weather in the mid 50s, sunny, and a slight breeze, with all the trees starting to turn colors. Amazing scenery and some amazing hills. 6.1 miles at 7:32 pace...felt very relaxed but also quite strong.
4.5 mile run this morning. Beautiful morning, easy run. No achilles discomfort at all. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Yay! That's two pain/discomfort-free runs in a row. Woot!

Plan tonight was a 6 mile recovery run. I think I went a bit harder than I should have for a recovery run. It was a same loop as I did last night.<br><br>
I felt okay. Still hacking quite a bit though.<br><b>Run Segments<br>

Will do altoids. To be honest, it feels more like the running is causing the crap in the chest to break up and come up more than anything. That's a good thing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
did my longest training run to date - 13 miles. Running 13 miles as a training run was quite a bit harder than running those same 13 miles at a HM. I've only done one HM so far, but have another in about a month. This run kicked my butt - it was warm out, the last mile or so was uphill, into a strong headwind and I hurt. My calves were tight, my butt hurt, my hamstrings hurt. I definitely pushed myself and once it was all done, I felt great. Not sure I'll feel so great in the a.m. - might take a few extra minutes to stand up and walk . . . <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/cool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Cool">
Congrats on the 13 Tamster! And EQ, I agree with Altoids, take it easy!<br><br>
A bit late, but a Lake Winnipesaukee Relay report from me from yesterday (Sat) ...<br><br>
This was my third year racing leg 2, and 11 mile jaunt, with a fairly steep and long uphill to start, then a significant amount of downhill, but still a bunch of rollers along the way. Some consider this leg "easy" ... but those who have run it say otherwise. There is only maybe 1 truly easy leg of Lake Winnie, out of 8.<br><br>
Our leg 1 runner was one of the slower ones but it set me up nicely for some ego-boosting. I passed 12 runners on that leg, and was only passed by one - a guy who had his handoff after me. I felt strong, even though I've done very little hill training this year. Tired though. With all the extra mileage following the Pfitz plan this year, I'm wiped out. I came in at 1:30:06, 8:12/mile.<br><br>
Now here's where the insanity begins. Another club member who was running on one of our other teams (we had 4 there) who had also run leg 2 decided to join me in running leg 3 (9.3 miles) so we could get a 20-miler in. Looking at the results, my running club friend ran EXACTLY a 1:30:06 for leg 2 as well, how funny! Leg 3 is a beast of a run, and it's the one Vogel signs up for all the time because he is a masochist. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> We were both spent from our hard 11 miles, and went really, REALLY slow for the 9.3. Generally on long runs I've been averaging 9:15ish or so. This 9.3 was more like 10 something. It was long, hilly, and hot. We plodded our way through though. We received lots of encouragement along the way, and I felt the need to explain we were no longer racing ... since everyone was passing us!<br><br>
We finished up leg 3 after over 3+ hours of running for both of us and 20.3 miles! I don't have the exact time because I screwed up my watch. I decided against the Garmin yesterday although my running friend had his on, I don't really care ... We finished and I'm now in TAPER! Not a moment too soon either - I'm getting kind of tired of all these miles. I've had one week under 40 miles since June, and that was RTB week when I did 38.<br><br>
I've already decided I'm taking 2008 off from any marathons no matter what happens at Baystate in 3 weeks.
AM: 13 miles, with downhill 980' elevation loss in first 6 miles.<br>
PM: 7.5 trail miles. A trail run/hike, sweeping the trail markers for the local 50km race.<br><br>
Kind of skewed my weekly miles -- 74 miles.
