Good Morning Larry and all who follow!<br><br>
6.5 miles on the TM - most walking with three .5 mile slow runs. No twinges this morning, so maybe I'll keep it this way for the week - staying with three .5 mile runs surrounded by a lot of walking fast. Then next week up it a little more.<br><br>
Have a good day everyone! We're suppose to get a snow storm tonight - one station is saying 8 - 14 inches. Guess no school tomorrow if it happens.
......mornin' all//.......nice run pink, that TM takes discipline....<br><br>
.........just above freezing on The Plateau.............40-min hh run....<br><br>
but definitely broke a sweat...<br>
...they seem to be fencing off the fields<br>
around the trail,<br>
tried to run the fence-line and wound up in slippery Mud....<br>
made my way back to the grass, and <b>stayed</b> there....<br><br>
.......good running guys.............and Good Luck to our Racers.......enjoy the day<br><br>
...............................off to my 2nd Church
Morning all! Got to sleep in a bit this morning since my earlier client had called last night to cancel. The later client, I think we finally had a breakthrough with her in terms of her abdominals, in that she finally announced that one of the pilates exercises I've been giving her was "really intense". Simply lying supine, knees bent and feet on the floor, maintaining a thoracic curve and performing torso rotation. In other words, the bicycle crunch. I had taken all the arms and legs out of the movement, just holding a yoga block lengthwise between her hands (haven't invested in a pilates circle yet, so I improvise), and with a very small range of motion, she really felt all that had to be engaged to maintain neutral spine throughout the exercise. Wow, it really amazes me sometimes when I can actually apply everything that I know in theory, AND that the person I'm teaching it to actually gets it.<br><br>
No running for me today since I've got a 6 hour yoga immersion workshop this afternoon. Focus is on hips this month. If nothing else, my spasmy psoas is gonna love it!<br><br>
Good runs all!
Stopping by to say : <span><b>fly like the wind weekend runners!!<br></b></span><br><br>
I am off for another day of skiing, this time we are traveling to the Methow to enjoy their powder. I hope I can keep up with the ripper today. At least the scenery will be spectacular.
Good run today. 15 big hill miles in 2:04:04 (8:16 pace AHR 155). The best part was while pushing up a big steep hill, Solarmix11's "Rocky" and then "Chariots of Fire" came on and motored me up the hill feeling stronger! Tory ran the first 7.5 with me.<br><br>
Hope the racers are doing great!
Wow! Nice runs everyone! 11, too slow, miles for me this morning. Gorgeous day! The calm before the storm. DH and I are digging our snow shoes out for some fun tommorrow!<br><br>
Can't wait to read all the race reports later.<br><br>
Just got back in from an easy 4 miles. Tried walking .5 mi first to get the kinks out, but right side is still a little tight. At least there were no twinges in the hip, like there were the other day. Have overloaded the TFLs a couple of times in the past, causing spasms due to weak glutes and lousy core strength. Gotta refocus on the strength again, even though I thought I had been doing enough to keep it at bay.<br><br>
Sigh.....Gotta go stretch.............
No run today. After yesterday, my left calf is as tight as a misers purse strings.<br><br>
Great job for mc, but I think a bit off what he was shooting for. Looking forward to the report.<br><br>
Really excited and happy for today's racers. And -- Bonus! -- my BIL BQ'd at Houston today.<br><br>
Also, terrific races yesterday Soundie and Dirt.<br><br>
I thought about doing a long swim this morning.<br>
The thought went something like this: bleeggh.<br>
So, six rejuvenating miles on my favorite trails, alternating 5 min walk / 5 min run.<br>
Felt so good to breathe outdoor air and hear the rush of the river.<br><br>
