Good Morning All-just 4.25 miles for me this morning. It is supposed to be a beautiful day here in central New York-looking forward to spending the day on the shore of Lake Ontario.<br>
Have a great day!
Taking today off but got in a really nice 9.3 @ 8:30 pace yesterday morning. Spent much of yesterday on a ladder fixing a window leak and some downspouts my dog decided to pull down and turn into a chew toy. Cleaned out some of the gutters while I was up there. Today and tomorrow I will be appropriately celebrating Labor Day weekend at the office.<br><br>
Happy runs all.
I ran 30 minutes at the gym on the treadmill at a fairly slow pace (5.8 mph), which is about 10.3 minutes per mile. It was hard but not terrible. I felt good afterwards. I've just started the 1 hour running program by Switzer.<br><br>

Susan, keep it up. I like the way "hard" and "felt good" are juxtaposed in your posting. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
The goal today was 17 with [email protected] I came pretty close. The 14 was interrupted by what my mind kept saying was an "unrelenting hill" -- this one always gets in the way of these long MP runs. But somehow I recovered somewhat and finished reasonably close to my goal.<br><br>
Stats: 17.3, 2:20, 8:07/mi, including 14.3 @ 8:02 (MP+10)<br><br>
Here are my splits vs. elevation for the run.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1276/1303448495_e21b0c86e9_o.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><img alt="" src="http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1048/1304325832_e064b37667_o.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">
After taking a long time to get out of bed this morning, I ran 18.4 miles out in the woods in appx. 3:15 (I'm not counting the 2 or 3 minutes I spent talking with a neighbor I occasionally see out there), with the last 6 miles slightly faster than the first 6.<br><br>
This is the first time in over a month I've run farther than 12 miles and I'm happy to report no pain. The IT band has been trying to rear it's ugly head occasionally since the 50K a month ago, but I've finally noticed whenever I wear the hardrocks I seem to run pain free (at least the first 20 something miles are pain free). So it looks like it's hardrocks exlusively now for trail running.<br><br>
Took an ice bath when I finished and feel pretty good, the Boulder marathon is officially now a go <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/headbang.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headbang">.
