Yes, indeed. It's Sunday over here.<br><br>
86F 62% Heat index 92F<br>
partly cloudy, breezy<br>
3.1 miles, SLOWLY on porcine feet, hefty hooves and boneless ankles<br>
swim in outdoor pool<br><br>
Note to self: Nix the soya and fish sauce on ramen noodles before flying.<br><br>
Ran along the Singapore River, taking in the sights and smells (the river has that salty aroma, kinda like a Chinese market with dried shrimp bins). Had planned to do a little more than 5k, but I just got hours ago and I'm a bit discombobulated. And it's HOT! Sure feels good, though, to sweat!<br><br>
It's summer, of course, and the fauna is beautiful. Think I'll go up to Fort Canning Park before the sun sets, then have dinner outdoors at one of the many places along the river ... or maybe go to Indian Town or Chinatown. Such diversity in Singapore where you can visit a mosque, Christian church, and Hindu temple all in one neighbourhood, dine on Malay, Chinese or Indian food, or combinations thereof. I'll stroll over to Baghdad Street for a teh tarik (pulled tea) tomorrow and visit the National Orchid Garden.<br><br>
Will catch up to Saturday goings-on later. Hope everyone had great races and runs.

Hi, SS!<br><br>
Ran 5 miles this morning in light rain. This got me back to 30mpw level following 50K and 2 viruses. Back on track. <img alt="blush.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/blush.gif">

At Mom's, ran over to the jr high school track and met Theia (from the 30's group here) and her friend Michelle, they were doing speedwork. I just plodded around and we chatted a bit when they were recovering. I'm going to call mine 5.<br><br>
Heading home in a few hours<br><br>
Souc, let us know all the details and gustatory delights! Pictures if you can.

Yesterday I ran a 5k which took place in a state park. It's out on a nice trail and benefits the scrubjay. Anyway, my time was 30:00. Sounds a little slow I'm sure but I was happy with it. The trail switches from hard packed to soft sand continuously, so it make it a little bit trickier. Always happy wearing a number, no matter what the distance or surface....

I had a dream last night that I ran a 5K in 20:35. I was pretty psyched about it, but then noticed all of these strange running categories noted on the results page. I asked what they were, and someone told me that there were some costume categories, including one for dressing up as a knight. I was all bummed out that I hadn't entered in that category.<br><br>
Alas, I fear I will only ever see a 20:35 5K in my dreams. But it was fun while it lasted! My strained psoas is feeling better and better after yesterdays' run (duh, I think I strained it with yoga, not running...). Instead of a long run today, I ran a fast-finish medium run. I have 7 weeks in a row of 40+ mile weeks and 15-17 mile long runs every weekend, so I took a break, with the psoas and all.<br><br>
I started off slow for the first 8 miles, and then did the last 5 miles at MP. Total of 13.27 miles in 1:55:48 (8:43 pace). The psoas continues to feel greta.<br><br>

Thanks for starting us off from SSSteamy SSSingapore, SS! And yes, please watch the sodium intake before a flight like that. Could you even get you shoes on? I get all swelled up just flying to Seattle...<br><br>
Pegruns, I love that comment about being happy just wearin' a number. That's so cool.<br><br>
JJJ... <img alt="huh.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/huh.gif"> me hopes you don't think the "pain" comment is a suitable RR. I've been waiting for ages for that report so get busy!<br><br>
MustangSally, isn't Vegas just hideous? In all fairness, the outer residential areas are nice... but I can't get over how big an environmental drain the whole place is on the desert.... Vista and I ran/walked the entire strip early a.m. last June, but I'd be careful doing it alone!<br><br>
Getting ready to head out for my long run. Just waiting for a bit more daylight... Hoping to make it to 20, but my "double loop" planned from campus would give me 16 and that would be ok, too. Temps above zero... glory hallelujah! (and no wind! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> )

Hi Kicksters!<br><br>
Nice racing yesterday Econo, Lab, Pegruns & JJJ. Glad you're feeling "back" Tag.<br><br>
11 miles alone for me today. DH was feeling lazy today. He is a school principal and is taking this coming week off so decided to start it out by sleeping in and being lazy.<br><br>
Warmer temps although windy, but a nice run. I'm heading into a light week in preparation for a hilly HM next Saturday.<br><br>
I'm off to take DD and friend ice skating before the rains come and melt everything!<br><br>
'Just noticed I'm a 1/2 marathoner now!! Yipee!!<br><br>
Happy Sunday!

Sounds nice Sing San Sou in Singapore! 6 real easy ones for me alongside the River Thames in Oxford. We're away for the weekend in Oxford and although the temperature has not been much above freezing, it's been a beautiful sunny day. Watched the cream of our rowers working out on the river while we sat in the sunshine eating home made lemon cake and drinking hot chocolate, yum!

nice little sunday morning run, beautiful orange thing in the sky and God has turned off the faucet for a brief time..5.5 at medium effort. I winced every time a car approached, got to get rid of that phobia.

10 mile race today. 2 days after finishing a 50-mile week, my legs were fried. Did have a 2-minute negative split though.

JJJ -- waiting for the RR<br>
Econo -- nice sub-8's<br>
Lab -- lookin' good<br>
Robin -- was there a dressed like a sammich category?<br>
MS -- welcome to Babylon<br>
SS, Pro -- <img alt="" src="http://chinese.travel-way.net/aa02.gif" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
Once in a great while, there's simply no alternative to the TM. Woke up this morning to freezing rain, side streets and paths like glass, car covered in an icy carapace.<br><br>
So I celebrated 6 months since my injury with my longest run since early August, a 10 mile progression run. Liquid, smooth sounds of solarmix7 formed the backdrop, which seemed appropriate.<br><br>
Mile 1 - 9:20, getting the hang of the thing<br>
Mile 2 - 8:38, finishing the warmup<br>
Miles 3-6 - 8:18, settling in<br>
Miles 7-8 - 8:00, feeling fine<br>
Mile 9 - 7:30, stretching it out a little<br>
Mile 10 - 6:46, A-OK!<br><br>
My legs feel terrific. It's an illusion, of course--a race would quickly expose how thin my conditioning is--but it's great to be building up again. And out-eating the rest of my family combined.

Hi everyone. No run for me today -- instead I helped out directing people at a 5 mile race given by my local running club. DH came along and helped too (isn't that nice?). I took lots of pics of the runners at the first turnaround and posted them to the club's website. I'm going to do some spinning on the stationary bike in our basement, and then we're going out for dinner tonight. We had a pretty lazy day, doing laundry, reading, lots of eating, and even a short nap!<br><br>
Rotten doggies ate part of DH's jigsaw puzzle. When we came home from the race, we noticed that lots of pieces were on the floor and even more pieces were completely gone. I'll bet they turn up again in about 4 more hours after the dogs' dinner. I had bought DH a jigsaw puzzle of the peaks of the Adirondacks for a Valentine's gift.<br><br>
