14.1 miles in 2:00:28 for an avg pace of 8:32. VERY happy with that. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">
Nice run Todd!!<br><br>
Hi Shadow - I live in So. Oregon along with Tammy & John.. you are so close, you'll have to meet up with the PNWers sometime. They're a fun group <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Ok, I'm in this place of getting better & wanting to run faster, but should run slow... My normal running schedule (after asthma diagnosis but before the downward spiral I found myself in the last 1 1/2 yearish) was Tues, Thurs slow treadmill runs whatever I had time for & Sat - tempo run, Sun - long run.. well sat & sun on a smaller scale than most of you, but you get the idea. My strategy lately has been to get to 3 miles & then start the Sat/Sun thing again. So, that's in the back of my head today... so yeah I crashed & burned. First of all only walked 10 minutes b4 starting to run (which is usually 15-20 due to the bronchial issues).. first .50 running was definitely warmup, but then I started feeling really good & my legs just took over <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused"><br>
mile 1 - 12:35; mile 2 - 11:31; mile 3 - 14:07 mile 3 was .75 running, .25 walking cause I just ran out of gas... about 1/2 way into mile 2 & beginning of mile 3 I just ran... looked at the Garmin a couple of times & it said in the 10's & it felt great! when I finished I looked at my times & much to my surprise fastest point in time in mile 3 was 8:10 - yikes! no wonder I pooped out! First I was mad at myself, but then I thought this is because I'm getting better & able to run faster in the middle.. that has to be a good sign of things to come. But obviously I have a ways to go... so tomorrow I TRY to go slow & run farther than 3 miles. Ooops sounds like I'm already trying to do the Sat/Sun thingee <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
Tamalina - Ok so its a no go for the race in Talent... I have no doubt now after my run.. just wouldn't be a smart thing to do. I will end up going too fast for where i'm at right now. & since that always seems to happen before I get sick again, I need to wait. If I continue to improve, Phoenix in November should be fun!! Will try to come out & cheer you & John on..being that its closer to my house than yours.... But, I think first game of soccer is that day, but hoping the game will be later.
It's good that you are so in tune with yourself and where your limitations need to be Linda. you are making progress, but are wise to reign yourself back some when you know you need to.<br><br>
nice run Todd! (by the way - where in MN are you? that's where I"m from orginally and was just back there in July).<br><br>
I did 10.3 miles this a.m. and felt pretty good through the whole thing. I felt tiny twinges of IT pain at about mile 6, so I just changed my stride a little and it went away. never came back after that. Then when I got home my dogs were jumping around all excited (smelly running clothes must do it for 'em), so I took them out for 1.5 miles. Grand total of 11.8 today. Now it's time to peel these clothes off (i think they are literally stuck to me) and shower. Then it's off to finish up school shopping with my son and then tonight my DH and I are having a date night - Bourne Ultimatum and dnner at McGrath's.<br><br>
Have a good day all!
Ummm, I must be getting to be like an old man, as I can't help but have the thought of Tamalina peeling those clothes off sticking in my mind.<br><br>
I was going to write about my 4 mile and a bit run in a new location as I am out of time, but that thought is still hanging in my mind...... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
.....easy there liam//......you'll get used to this after a while.....<br><br>
.......great running RIN//........you're an ANIMAL........<br>
.........40-min heavyhands run.........90-degrees........not bad......<br><br>
............Adidas Cushion-6's did well, very comfy, and very PADDED, I think I'm switching over to my ''First Running Shoe'' Company------(Adidas Rom's were a Classic.).....<br><br>
.....................good running guys.........try to keep <b>most</b> of your clothes on.....
short day on the daily thread.<br>
i'm with liam.<br><br>
went to the kiddie tri this morning. it is a really fun event. ages ranged from 2 to 12. the 12 yo is a tri girl in the making. great swim stroke, and when she jumped off the bike and loped away it was effortless.<br><br>
then went with orapin to a new lake (well new to me). 1/2M swim. she really got the sighting thing down. a straight shot to the far dock and back. this alone will knock 5m off her mile time. funny though i powered back on the return,,,,and got the same time as the out leg. just reaffirms that my swim is so bad i swim the same speed if i try hard or not.<br><br>
then a 5-6 M run on the famous central MA rail trail. great place to run! shady! great for a 90 deg and humid hazy day.<br><br>
the end of the season tri party tonight. easy on the beer kid. i still have to run 15 tomorrow in more HHH weather.<br><br>
see ya's later,<br>
HTC reporrt from the land of little or no cell service.<br><br>
Just got a call from Labduck - his team is at the final van exchange and will probably finish around 8pm tonight. He saw San Souci finish her first leg and waved at their van at another exchange.<br><br>
He ran his first two legs and the 'probable backup runner he'd lined up will run the third leg for him'. I thanked him for being 'not stoopid' and taking care of his foot.
Nice pace there, ToddEP.<br><br>
Good to hear the H2C runners are still moving, and not being stoopid.<br><br>
Tammy, DW and I really liked Bourne Ultimatum. The action was a bit intense.<br><br>
I posted my HM report <a href="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10079" target="_blank">here</a>.
I'm glad to hear that Lab is being cautious. Thanks for the update MrsLab. I've been thinking of them all morning/day and wondering who is running, where are they at, etc.<br><br>
Sorry, Liam . . . didn't mean to give you that visual. Trust me . . .peeling sweaty stinky running clothes off is NOT the same as "peeling clothes off" if you know what I mean. Even my 52 yr old husband, who is really a 18 yr old at heart, finds nothing appealing about me struggling to get my running clothes off.<br><br>
went school shopping with DS and the soreness is beginning to set into my legs. I'm sure sitting in a theater this evening will really help. Glad you hear you and Mrs. Millbot liked the movie. We loved the first two and have heard good reviews on this one as well.
Just joining the daily to get in the habit. I biked today instead of running. I'd intended to run twice this week (but only ran once) and cut my cycling down 10 miles (but added 10 instead) as I transition from solely cycling, to cycling and running, to running and cycling/strengtrh training over the next few months. On the bright side, my one run was further than I'd planned, so I was only .9 miles short of my weekly goal, modest as it was.<br><br>
