Morning all! Workout number one in the book. 60min steady swim.<br><br>
In the locker room afterwards I got to talking to some women who are taking my swim coach's tri clinic. The clinic runs from 6-8am. They came dragging into the locker room at 8:30. We're convinced that the coach can't tell time! My 30min swim session is always 60mins, minimum!
Nothing for me today. Just a nice rest day. My legs need the rest anyway.<br><br>
Alex-- I read your post from last night and i had to laugh.<img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> Now you can put all your focus on running.<br><br>
Have a great morning everyone.
Quick fly by post on my half marathon this morning in Gainesville.<br><br>
( On very minimal training) I ran it in around 1:38:55 which is 9 seconds faster than the first half the the Richmond marathon last November. One of my goals was for nobody to pass me after the 6 mile mark and nobody did, I obviously passed a bunch of runners.<br><br>
I was shooting for a 1"41:30, so I guess I don't really believe in myself too much.<br><br>
More on Monday
Morning all. No weekend runs for me this weekend. I think I'll go for a walk this afternoon as I have no energy to run and no appetite to get the energy.<br><br>
The big mystery of "what's wrong with Flobear" is that my relationship of 3+ years is over. He is my best friend and he will be again, but for the time being there is no communication (as of yesterday at 8:30pm when it was official).<br><br>
So as you can imagine, though I know running will make me feel better, I haven't eaten much so I have no energy to go. I'm hoping a walk today with some friends will help me get hungry and then I can run tomorrow.<br><br>
Just felt I should explain.
Morning, everyone. Six for me yesterday, probably 5 mile tempo today. Been away from running and posting for about ten days with work and obligations. Nice to slow down a bit. Plan to spend some time catching up on reading your posts the past week! Hope all has been well.
(((Flo))) Sorry to hear about the events of recent past. Easier said than done, but try to keep your chin up, a smile on your face, and when you're ready to go for a nice, long run. Running has actually helped me deal with break ups in the past. When I was done my head always felt so much clearer and I felt so good about myself for what I had just accomplished. Feel better!<br>
Alex, Richard, and Kfuller- Enjoy the rest days!<br>
Mutthound- Great race and smokin' time! You're faster than you think.<br>
4boys- Nice job on the AM swim!<br>
Chances- Welcome back to the board. Enjoy your return to training.<br><br>
Day 10 and still flu-ey. Congestion and a bit of aches. Hoping that another day of complete rest (have not even done homework this weekend just rested) will work. Day 14 of no running. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">
Very sorry to hear that, Flo. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
I was able to run 6 miles today. I've switched to a new pair of shoes; I had bought several pairs in December. It seems to help. I'll keep running until I can see a doctor. Right now, Dr. Billy is prescribing Vitamin I.
So sorry, Flo... <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
Great racing Mutthound!<br><br>
This morning, did a long run with a friend on snowy, yet surprisingly runnable trails. We did 19 miles at 8:30 pace. It was great to run with someone for a change...
I am sorry, Flo. My longest relationship that fizzled was only nine months, and that was painful enough. I really feel for you.<br><br>
I see there's some resting today, and that's cool -- except, 4BM, you're an animal now.<br><br>
I popped a good one today. 5.5 miles on a hilly course. Was knockin' 'em down like the old days. A nice 35-degree, sunny day added to the pleasure.<br><br>
Good runs, all
Alex & KFuller - enjoy the rest.<br><br>
Chances - Bout time you got back. Nice to see your post this morning.<br><br>
Flo - So, sorry. Glad you're at least walking.<br><br>
Loopy - 19? Great way to spend a Sunday morning!<br><br>
Baba - Glad you enjoyed the run. Must have felt good.<br><br>
Billy - I must have missed it. What happend to you?<br><br>
Mutt - Nice going. Way to underestimate yourself<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> Glad you did better<br>
Richard - Nada esta dia?<br><br>
4boys - You just keep crankin um out!<br><br>
Liz - Hope you're turning the corner on this bug.<br><br>
8 miles for me today. Tired legs so took it easy till the last 3/4 mile then pushed as much as I could. Hoping for fresher legs next week.
I will get a Hike on my running trails in the woods today after work... however no running for me until this upcoming thursday... my right knee stabilizer muscles are messing with me... so it will be cross train cross train. Plus I will actually get to see how my trails are doing cant wait ... have not been on them since december<br><br>
Nice Work on the 8 miles and good job everyone else. Better get back to being productive in my office
I went out for nine miles today on the roads. It's almost a year since I broke my foot on a 10 mile training run, so I was especially nervous and careful out there - footing was tricky in spots, with lots of snow and slush and patches of ice. The goal for the run was to be around 9:30/mm.<br><br>
Splits: 9:25, 9:31, 9:40, 9:32, 10:05 (turnaround into an ocean headwind), 9:32, and here, with three miles to go, I thought of our very own venerable and wise Hawk, who urges me to finish strong, mile 7, 9:14, mile 8, 9:15, mile 9, 9:28 (with a hill at the end).<br>
Total 9:10 miles, avg 9:32 pace.<br><br>
I'll take it.<br><br>
Good ones, all.
(((Flo))) been there, done that... Hang in there. You'll make it.<br><br>
Some fine runs today!<br><br>
Son and I hopped out for a fun little spin this afternoon. High 30's and sunny. Oh, and NO WIND!!! Went a bit further today. Best part--almost dead even splits! 24.95m, 1:40, 14.9mph.
<b>Flo</b>-Hang in there, going for a run is probably the best thing that you can do. BTW, I saw your picture the other day. Congratulations! You should be proud of yourself!<br><b>Ellen</b>-nice job on that long run!!<br><b>Dan</b>-Are you still planning to run Tacoma?<br><b>Mutt</b>-geez, I wish I could run that well on little training, nice job!<br><b>Liz</b>-hope you feel better, geez it has been too long!<br><br>
I had a great run today. My knee has been bothering me since my marathon 3 weeks ago. My goal was to run 14-16 miles today and try and keep it relatively flat to protect my knee. The first 4 and last 4 were quite hilly but ran around a track and park for the middle miles. I ran 15.10 miles at a decent pace with all most no pain! Woohoo! <img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif">I also found a water fountain that I didn't know existed. My husband said "I can't believe you are <b>that</b> excited about a drinking fountain". It's the little things in life.<img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Good runs to all!
Zack when is your first meet you are running? Are you running in school meets unattached how does that work if you're not on the school's team? I can't imagine doing it around here because I'd have like no meets to even run at...maybe non at all actually.<br><br>
How's training been going and I forgot what your goals were for this spring...what are they again? <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">
